Thanks BANITA, for solving the problem.
(I may not have been able to solve this kind of problem.)

I wonder if the two texture files in question should be included in the package.
But if the problem with PatrykW is his only problem, that may not be necessary.

Hi Rapota,

would you like to work at the external model of the KA-50N, I already startet with? I think you have much more skills with it as I have.

If you like I can sent you the link to all the files I already had made. I think Messyhead, Javelin and Banita have them, too. I also would help as much as I'm possible to do of course, but I think I will need a really long time to get all of this done what's needed to have the KA-50N working in EECH.

I also started with a MI-28N version. At the moment only some 3D models of the pilots frontpanel are made. I would like to make a gunner cockpit for this bird too, so that after the gunner pit of the MI-24 is working again, every helo in EECH has a pilot and a gunner pit.

I am currently making Ka29.
(Maybe nobody will make Ka29.)

Once I complete this, I think I can work with your project.
I would like to know the contents of your project, so please link to the file.

I am making a Ka29 rotor mechanism model. This is quite complicated, but it could be used with Ka50.

>Just one thing - any chance to adjust the colour of the shadows? They seems to be always very black but ideally if they could be dark dark grey that would be awsome

I'm sorry
I just need to cast shadows on me now.

But I am not 100% satisfied with the shadow.
If I find a way to improve the shadow, I would like to fix it.

On the shadow color, try lowering the alpha (transparency) value. Colors are generally r-g-b-a in nature. If a=1.0 it's solid, a=0.5 it's half transparent, a=0.25 it's just a light tint.

On a related topic, I think this is the problem with the terrain textures. The detail texture on top isn't blending because the alpha value is 1.0. I haven't had time to check yet, but I think that's the problem.

On the NightShark, I like the tan/gray/black camo on the first one. Green is more common, but I like the tan and black. I have the ball sensor animation figured out when you're ready.

Since I figured out again how the whole texture UV-mapping thing is working, I will finish the KA-50 cockpit now as fast as possible.

Sadly I have no time the next two or three days, cause I have to finish some works in the living room too. I will come in real trouble if it's not finished soon, cause I mostly did some things for my hobby biggrin

As I make most parts of the furniture by my own and need my 3D printer for making things like connectors etc. and this #%&*$# thing isn't running at the moment, I have to find a way to repair it. If I'm finished I'm back again at EECH thumbsup

Just played one winter map but the skin was a standard army green one. Can a winter skin be added?

It is the army vehicles and fighters that have winter and desert camouflage in the model which I remade.
I do not make camouflage for helicopters. I'm sorry.

If I have time, I would like to make it, but I would like to make other Red Army models first.

No worries mate, not a big problem and to be honest if you got spare time then just crack on with Red Army models. So far I am well pleased with the current models, top work!

Hi Rapota, The models look superb up close! Thanks mate. Eventually I would like to make the fixed wing aircraft flyable in the sim, and nice 3D models are a big step in that direction. It's a lot of work, though. Other things need attention before I can indulge myself with that.

I had a look through some of the models, and found a few issues.

The models are great, I really lke the detail on them, especially the rotor heads.


Some issues I found, but I've not looked at every model so far.

In the Comanche and Viper, the pilots right hand is missing, and the left hand doesn't match up to the collective. The Comanche/Viper gunner has something strange going on with his arms too, like there's another model overlapping. When I've been updating the KA-50, I asked what people thought of removing the pilot model from the cockpit, and we decided to remove them. So maybe you could just remove the pilot model? It depends on what people would like to see. I suppose it could be controlled from the eech.ini whether the pilots are in the cockpit or not. I don't any other sims that have this.

On the exterior of the Comanche, there's something happening with the surface smoothing at various camera angles. Sometimes it's smooth, and sometimes it's not. Have you enabled smoothing on all of the surfaces?

This is also more apparent on the external Blackhawk model.


On all the models, are there LOD versions of them? I zoomed out on the external view, and used Alt L to change the LOD detail, but couldn't see any changes in the external models. I'm using version 1.16

Hello guys,

I have finished the work in the living room and also my HTPC is running. I will do some work at the KA-50 cockpit internals now at the evenings again.

I have still a lot of work, cause now as my first "modern system" hahaha the HTPC is running (Phenom II 955 - Geforce 1030GT) I came across a new problem. Nearly two-thirds of my games aren't able to run anymore. As far as I could find out at the web, it seems to be a driver problem with the latest NVidia and perhaps also with AMD/ATI drivers. They almost nearly droped all support for DirectX 9.

Now many games of my Steam and GOG list do not start anymore. Same goes for my CD/DVD game-collection. They do all crash with a DirectX error.

As I found out reading in many forums, I'm not the only one with this problem. Many NVidia and AMD users have reported of such problems. They are all very annoyed, cause you still can buy many DX9 games at Steam, GOG, Origin etc. So if this could not be fixed, you have to use an extra DX9 retro PC to play your "old" games which use DX9.

I already built a retro machine to play my games of the W9X to XP era and now you have to built another machine for even playing DX9 titles, are they crazy! cuss

If things go on this way further, I really will give up with my hobby. I understand that new technologies not always totally backwards compatible, but this looks more like they don't want you to run older titles anymore. But you can still buy them online and still the most titles you can buy are DX9.

P.S: And there is no more option to get older or legacy driver at the NVidia page anymore. Only a few are still able for download! What's this!? Now you have to download all drivers before they aren't up to date anymore and save them at a harddrive for the future, cause one year later you won't be able to get them anymore banghead
