  1. For the Air India repaint made by JanKees Blom you cannot use the Livery Manager, you have to install the "old fashioned way" by unzipping and then Copy and Paste the livery and then the aircraft.cfg entry. The reason is a simple one, when the AirbusX was released (in 2010) there was no Livery Manager, that was only included after the release of the AirbusX Extended in 2012. John
  2. This was always my first place to look : https://www.planespotters.net/airline/British-Airways And yes, the person who uploaded that photo was not correct.
  3. The photo and registration is of an A320 not 319.
  4. There are THREE entries with [FLTSIM=0]. The first entry [FLTSIM=0] is correct , the next should read [FLTSIM=1] , the next [FLTSIM=2] . Check that each entry adds the next consecutive number for [FLTSIM=??] .
  5. You are missing the entry [fltsim.2] all others are being ignored . You will have to manually renumber from [fltsim.3] for all entries .
  6. Dear sir, I loss repaint of Cambodia Angkor Air due to my HDD dead.But I can't download it anymore. Hope you can reupload it. Thank you very much!

      Dear Baltalon, I am also looking for an A321 IAE Cambodia Angkor Air livery, have you found one? I saw John Glanville's awesome work on the repaint request forum, but sadly all links are still broken... Cheers!

      Sorry to disappoint you but my liveries are no longer available . It was not a decision I took lightly with some 240 liveries and almost 100000 downloads . I was simply " underwhelmed " by the support I received not just from Aerosoft but also the very forum members who ( seemed to have ) agreed with the actions taken by Aerosoft .

       

      I recently opened this topic :

       

      http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/124861-repaints-and-intellectual-property-ip/

       

      This later turned out to be a misunderstanding on my part . I remedied this by apologising to the person concerned in the open forum ( instead of privately ) and also uploaded reworked textures and an additional 2 new liveries .

      If you take the time to read this thread you will see that other issues came to light that only made everything worse . Aerosoft decided to remove two of the most popular airline livery sets ( American - one of which had more than 13500 downloads for just one registration and SAS - the entire Airbus fleet ) made by DetCord and myself without even asking our permission to do so . Simply put , if I was planning to remove my paints why would I be uploading improved liveries and additional paints .

      I was at the time active in the forum still making liveries by request including entire fleets and read the posts on a daily basis but now I see no reason for " contributing " anything here unless an apology is given ( not just to myself ) and that all painters are given the recognition and status they deserve ( instead of just one ) .

       

      Before being able to reply to the topic above it was locked so I started this thread :

       

      http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/126031-removal-of-uploads/

       

      Even after stating that I had no intention of removing any repaints ( and expecting that the American and SAS liveries would be re-installed on the server ) , it seems that a small minority took it upon themselves to start downvoting every post I made for whatever reason without being brave enough to actually tell me what they " disagreed " with . Even now ( one month later , these posts are still being downvoted ) . I was however disappointed to discover that no one chose to comment in a positive manner or show any support as to what happened . It seems that people are thinking I only painted the Bus for " free stuff " , the only problem with that is I never asked for ( or was offered ) anything from Aerosoft for my repaints even though the American A321 ( N911UY ) is included in the product but Aerosoft " forgot " to include our names in the manual and we received absolutely nothing for it , although others have ( in the past ) received free copies for pointing out spelling / grammatical errors in the manuals or simply uploading a video . This made it perfectly clear that my input in the last 7 years wasn't worth that much ( if anything at all ) .

      This attitude led me to the conclusion that my only option was to remove ALL of my liveries ( some 240 ) myself as no one from the Aerosoft staff chose to make any kind of a reply to my posts and have in fact ignored them . With the sheer number of repaints involved I have no plans to upload anywhere else at this time due to the amount of work this would entail .

       

      You could post in the painters forum asking for the livery to be made , or if you were one of the people who " donated " to Holgi's new PC you could ask him ( and have every right to do so ) although he hasn't uploaded anything Airbus related since May 2016 .

       

      I could have just replied " NO " to your post but I feel it is important that you understand that it was definitely NOT my decision to remove anything in the first place , the " MISunderstanding " is all Aerosoft's doing , not mine .

  8. Thx for the VX repaints young man. They will be getting a new paint job starting next year, and the gradually leave the fleet. You are most excellent! Carry on!

     

  9. Just uploaded : http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/files/file/4489-airbus-a321-cfm-sharklets-virgin-america-n921va/ http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/files/file/4489-airbus-a321-cfm-sharklets-virgin-america-n921va/
  10. Being worked on at the moment . Should be ready in a day or so .
  11. You were not being rude to me personally but to painters in general . At the risk of repeating myself , your post contained the comment ... but not as accurate as the top painters ... If that is not being rude , then I do not know what is . You are asking if someone ( i.e. a painter ) is willing to fullfil a " request " , so there is no need to add the comment ( in red ) above . You criticised another painters work without even contacting them to ask if they would be able to add any details you found " missing " . Why would anyone be prepared to commit themselves to several hours of work only for it to be dismissed because it did not meet your requirements . Again feedback is the one thing that no one seems to bother with . I can only suggest that you download the paintkit and try for yourself , not forgetting to upload it so that we can all enjoy it . It's not as though the old EasyJet paintscheme is al that difficult ( to start with ) . As for being " proud of myself " , all I have done is point out that saying that you would like a repaint of airline XYZ would go a lot better without commenting that other paints that are available are not " accurate enough " . I have in the past made " mistakes " and I am sure that even Holgi has too but unless these " mistakes " are pointed out then nothing is learned . Another point is this is after all a thread named " Repaint Request " , not " Repaint Demand " , if a repaint you asked for is made be thankful ( and do not forget to thank the painter ) , if not look elsewhere . Regarding downvoting my post , whatever " floats your boat " - though childish - and all because you did not get the reaction you wanted , being blunt seems to be the only way to ( possibly ) gain any respect for all the painters that waste their time for forum members such as yourself . Being polite ( with your request ) will ( probably ) increase your chances , otherwise ...
  12. The screenshots I placed on the previous page ( page 50 post #1237 ) were in reply to post #1204 who also found it neccessary to comment on the QUALITY of previous EasyJet paints that were available . Such " comments " are counter productive ( not just im my eyes ) and hardly inspire anyone to paint something only for it to be discounted as " not accurate " or " low quality " . That I took the time to make those two repaints was to prove a point , if you had posted without the comment about the accuracy ( a missing winglet logo - which you didn't mention - hardly a showstopper ) , then who knows , as it is I am under no obligation to upload any of my work - I don't work for Aerosoft or the forum members . That you personally find a repaint " lacking " is a shame ( for you ) , did you try contacting the painter to let him know ? I doubt it , I have had quite a few 1 star reviews myself ( without any explanation ) and I am still waiting to hear from these people why it was only worth 1 star . One of the things that I myself have posted about it the past has been the lack of feedback regarding paints ( good or bad ) . Even a simple thank you goes a long way . Having painted the Bus from the Beta AirbusX ( 2010 ) til now I have certainly painted some complicated paintschemes and also some " easy " ones , made several " requests " and have done my best to " please " others spending many hours / days / weeks / months doing it and at NO COST to anyone downloading them . The lack of gratitude is something that I ( sadly ) accepted some time ago but still kept sharing with others . Obviously that was a mistake on my part as it seems in that respect nothing has changed . Post Script : Thanks to those who gave a reputation point to post #1268 ( not why I posted ) , to those who downvoted my post , have at least the guts to post the reason why you did so , instead of hiding behind your keyboard .
  13. I really do wonder why I ( or any other painter - for that matter ) continue to waste my free hours / days / weeks / months making repaints for people who have such a high regard for the amount of " work " involved . This is now the second post asking for EasyJet paints but at the same time remarking on the " quality " of paints already available . Hardly a motivation point for anyone else thinking of starting an EasyJet paint is it ? Just be thankful that a painter " attempted " to please you ( at NO cost ) , only for it to be dismissed as " not accurate " . I myself spent a considerable amount of time remaking the warning signs on the engines ( and discovered a few omissions in the pain kit ) but I do not want to disappoint a paint expert such as yourself with a low quality paint . In true Blue Peter tradition here are two EasyJet paints " that I made earlier " .
