• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

Hiring Texture Artist for photorealistic work on Airport/Ground Polygons

Requirements:
- Create HD photorealistic textures for objects and ground polygons of small to medium sized (mostly Caribbean) airports (mostly from close up photographs, sometimes hand-made).
- Ground polygons need to be high resolution with specular, reflection, dirt, skid marks, etc.
- Implement convincing night lighting and shadowing.
- Implement realistic shrubs and grass objects around airports.

Texture Artist will receive completed models for their work flow.
Payment driven by sales and is negotiable.

Contact me via PM or preferably at richersimulations at gmail.com with photoss/videos of previous work experience and further discussion on how we might work together.

When I design, I use the imagery to understand the modelling, and vice versa. I'd be less successful if I were to separate those jobs. Have you just learned to model, but not yet learned to work with imagery? I always size my models based on doors within the imagery. I often use multimaterials which drive the modeller to assign material IDs based on the texturing plan.

I suspect you'll be much happier and much more successful if you learn to make textures and do both....or if you need to specialize I'd give yourself the job of doing all modelling, both geometric and decorative, and perhaps ask somebody to help you with ground poly efforts.

I agree, modelling and texturing go hand in hand. I have learnt to create extremely convincing building models when I have good source photos (see small project below.)

However, my difficulty comes when I have to create detailed textures by hand. I have spent hours trying my hand at it, but I find that I seem to lack the creative nous to produce convincing results.

If a texture artist is willing to bring their creativity and join only for HD ground poly creation, I would consider that also.

Textures at airports are real time consuming, the issue you might run into is I don't think that many people are fast enough for it to be affordable to do the work for someone else. Even if you found someone, I'm not sure you'd be happy with the results. The few that are, probably do it so often, that they are working somewhere else.

If your area lacks super high-res imagery, then what I suggest is finding some very high res public domain imagery provided by somewhere other than your own airport, but somewhere that has a close enough look to it, and then overlay that imagery as a ground tile under your airport. You can even use the Adobe patch tool to blend the other texture onto an original image so that you maintain some matching area.

Wish you the best...
