P3D v2 Bombardier Challenger 605

Here's a close-to-final render of the 605, just in time for Christmas! The entire model is about 95% complete right now, with only a few minor details to add like probes and those pesky flap segments.

I am MUCH happier with the way this model turned out than the last in almost every aspect. It's also only 132,000 polys, which is not too high of a count when you compare it to other high-end models that are surfacing these days. I honestly don't think that the poly count will have any noticeable effect of in-game performance unless you're running it on a 7 year old PC.

I will probably start texturing this bird shortly after the holiday break, so everyone have a merry Christmas and be ready for more news come early January. :santahat:
 
Most Impressive!
Going into the texture phase keep in mind that how parts are textured has a lot to do with in-sim performance.
Merry Christmas back at ya! :wave:

Very, very nice!!! My Bell 222 has almost near 200,000 polys for the exterior and close to 104,000 polys for the interior with no noticeable impact on frame rates. All of this on a slow 3 year old laptop :O
 
Whouah, that's so amazing what you already done... I work around CL60 every day and that is so close to reality... well done, I'm excited to get this virtual bird virtually airborne ;)
Thx so much for your work and don't give up please ...

Hey Ozzy,
it's been a while now since the last update. So how is the project going?
Can't wait for news. Looking forward to some screenshots of the textured model.

Keep up the good work!!!
 
Thanks Ozzy for the hard work and efforts, its looking really good. Do you have images of the cockpit?
Ozzy,
I saw the photos of the cockpit development, it looks right on. I appreciate you not closing this project and I understand its a very time consuming process to complete. One question that comes to mind is, would you mind implementing my fathers paint? I think we spoke of this in an earlier post and you said would, but I wanted to be sure if you are able to still move forward with those plans. Again, the plane is very sentimental to myself and also to another member here. Thank you again for all the hard work and dedication to this project. Its nice to see this grow within the dev environment.

No single paint job is out of the question, and your fathers' is certainly no exception. I plan to make as many paints as possible for this bird and also have a PSD paint kit bundled in the package upon release.

Speaking of release...I mentioned before that there would be news in "early January". Well, today it's one...two...eleventeen...One day away from the end of February, and unfortunately it doesn't look like I followed through on that and I apologize. School, robotics, getting ready for college...I really haven't had much time to work on this project. But now that robotics season is over and I *should* be done applying for scholarships and whatnot, I predict free time popping up soon.

I appreciate all of you being patient and not childishly spamming the thread with questions about the release date. *Cough*Aerosoft forums.*Cough*
 
Dear Ozzy last night I was reading this chat and noticed your plane is near completion, I was just wondering if it has beven released and if so can you please leave the link.
Many thanks,
Davwills
 
Well, it's going on 4 months since Ozzy's last post, and I don't think we have even seen this bird with a paint job yet, so it will probably be best to avoid holding our breath. Sometimes life overtakes the most ambitious project, even when you've spent countless hours working on it.

After all, LIFE is the project we spend a lifetime working on, and I would much rather see a developer's project stalled because his life has taken a turn, than to see his project end because his life ended, which happens all too often.

I'd like to see this project come to fruition as much as the next guy, but there is a lot of work, perhaps all of the hardest bits to go, so let's give Ozzy as much time as he needs.

Maybe like many FS Developers, Ozzy is a hockey fan, and now that the Chicago Blackhawks have completed the 2015 season by winning the Stanley Cup, it will be one less distraction, and like developers in other cities whose teams are already on vacation, he will have more time to devote to this project. :duck:

Just sayin'. :rotfl:

Cheers
Gman
