• 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.

Repaint of Lancair Legacy Livery to PBR textures for P3D v6 Completed


I'm looking for an excellent texture/painting specialist that can update my P3D v4 Lancair Legacy's livery, external textures to PBR so it looks accurate in P3D v5 and v6.

I'd also like to make some small edits to the livery (enlarge the bigger stars, I have the artwork), add a sunscreen film to part of the canopy, and hide the landing lights in the wing leading edge (no 3D model edit, just paint the clear lens the same as the wing).

The finished product is for personal use. I originally hired an artist/technician for this livery design I created to be put on my RealAir Sim Lancair Legacy back in 2015. I have the RealAir Lancair Legacy Paint Kit and, of course, all the airplane files and my custom livery textures.

Here's how my livery and painting/textures look in P3D v4's rendering. The base color is supposed to be silver metallic, and it wasn't quite achieved.

Here it is in P3D v5 with the old, non-PBR textures. It looks worse than the original FSX/P3D v4 rendering engines.

Here are photos of the actual real world airplane's livery -- the airplane was named, "STARHAWK". I'd like the update to look like this, of course... :) The airplane only looks bright metallic when the sun reflects off of it at key reflection angles.
