  1. Sorry do not agree with this statement . I have stated before and do so again that repaints made for other versions are still valid for this version . The reason is simple , the only changes made to the paint kit since the Airbus X from 2010 are the VC textures and the addition of the sharklet models I was able to install ALL of my paints from the previous version ( installed in P3D V3 ) . Simply made backups using the Livery Manager ( for P3D V3 ) and installed them using the Livery Manager for P3D V4 ( this changes the texture.cfg automatically ) . Yes , there is some WORK involved by the end user regarding the line model= in the aircraft.cfg , the lack of a registration / selcal in the VC and for some the satdome ( this was not included in the previous paint kit ) . Any textures not used in the professional version are simply ignored and can be left or if the end user is confident enough , be removed ( to save space ) .
  2. For the third time , I really need to know which version of the A321 you have , otherwise the repaint will not work without some work on your part .
  3. Placing your email address in the open forum is NEVER a good idea , that is why I asked you to send me a personal message . Just to make myself perfectly clear , this is a ONE TIME ONLY offer , I am under no obligation to do this but as I spent a quite considerable amount of time making this livery I am not willing to spend any more time on it than neccessary .
  4. By placing your cursor overr my forum name you have the option to send me a message . The reason is simple , I no longer upload any of my repaints here or anywhere else . I also need to know which version you are looking for . You have posted in the " professional " section but that does not mean that is the version you need .
  5. As I'm in a good mood , if you want the MBM livery send me a PM .
  6. Most of the points mentioned in this topic are still valid - even for the professional version : I installed ALL of my liveries in the latest version with no problems whatsoever . If you still have the previous version ( for FSX or P3D V1/2/3 ) installed - Save your liveries using the Livery Manager ( for THAT version ) and then use the Livery Manager for the Professional version to install into P3D V4 . You will still have to create your own registration plate voor the VC and you MAY have to check the line model= in the aircraft.cfg but I can assure you that the liveries DO work .
  7. Joined today ( an hour ago ) and proceeded to downvote some of my old posts . At least I WAS a productive member for some years but that is how it is - Todays news is tomorrows wrapping for your fish and chips . John
  8. I recently open this topic : It seems that someone else ( or the same person ) has downvoted the original post ( from 2010 ) for a second time . What can be the reason to DISAGREE with a preview of ( what at the time was ) a " Work in Progress " . Will I get at least a response from this individual as to why they did so ?? It is not possible to react to the original post ( or the post linked above ) as this was locked some time ago and the livery in question was made for the AirbusX ( and is STILL available on a well known flightsim site ) . John Glanville
  9. We'll just wait and see then ( not holding my breath though ) . John
  10. Thanks for the quick reply and result but I was hoping atleast to hear why this person uploaded this livery in the first place as it is already included in the product - let alone the way it was " packaged ". I contacted DetCord ( who is the co-authour of these American liveries ) but due to the time difference have only just received his reply . As he is no longer a member here he has asked me to remind everyone that these liveries were made with the permission of American Airlines regarding logo's , colours etc. and under a strict NDA - so anyone altering or uploading them without permission could find themselves facing some legal issues - these are DetCord's words - and I believe that he is referring to American themselves regarding any such legal action . John Glanville
  11. Dave , The proof is in the product . By comparing each texture sheet ( by overlaying them ) you will see they are an exact match pixel for pixel . That someone makes a " similar " livery of an airline is one thing but there are ALWAYS going to be small differences , with this " download " there are none , each texture sheet is the same . I really don't want to have to search the file library for anymore of these uploads but not having much choice in the matter as it stands . One example is the MID section where I added text to a red / white stripe ( made entirely by myself - so I know what is written there ) which is also present in the download linked in my post . Another is the striping in the TAIL section is also exactly the same . I also " corrected " a misalignment in the windows - also present . There are several more instances that I will not mention here . I am just about to go to work and will prepare ( if needed ) a complete file where these textures are overlayed so that you can see for yourself . John Glanville
  12. I came across this " download " and all I can say is that I am very disappointed that someone would upload a livery that is not their own work . Why it is packaged as separate texture sheets ( without a [fltsim=XX] entry ) is puzzling to say the least . The livery in question N911UY is even included in the product and was made by DetCord and myself - so proof enough that it is our work by simply comparing each texture sheet - there were " improvements " made that are not in the paint kit . Hopefully this will be removed in the near future . Maybe it's time to appoint a Livery Manager would could check before allowing such " uploads " to be made . John Glanville
  13. Just had a notification that " someone reacted to a post " , so followed the link to discover that someone downvoted the post ( from 2010 !! ) , as I cannot reply to this individual ( and have no idea who or why ) or reply in the thread itself I will start this topic in the hope that this person will at least tell me why he downvoted it in the first place . Topic in question : John Glanville
  14. You have " Generate MIP MAPS " ticked , simply untick .
  15. @Ake , Relieved to note that it is not my repaint , as for it not being " rocket science " no one is infallible - painters included , mistakes can be made . DetCord started to make the liveries for SAS with the full co-operation of SAS regarding colours and logo's but due to his illness was unable to continue , so I ended up painting the entire SAS Airbus fleet ( with the correct names ) . As seen here : Unfortunately , Aerosoft in their wisdom chose to remove these paints ( without DetCord or myself asking them to do so ) which is their right , so they are no longer here to be downloaded . In answer to your ( next ) question , they are not available elsewhere either as I do not have the time ( or inclination ) to create the neccessary readme files and screenshots to upload to a site such as AVSIM and due to the hack and later server crashes I have to wonder how long it would be before I would have to re-upload everything there too ( already had to do that 3 times ) . John Glanville
  16. Of course it's possible to create a " blank " aircraft with the paint kit . By going to the section marked " Livery specific paint ... " and switching off ( unticking ) the layers you don't want to see you end up with an aircraft in the base colour and start to make your paint from there .
  17. This morning I received a couple of notifications that " someone " had reacted to a post of mine concerning liveries that were made some time ago . The topic : was buried on page 8 of the tweaking section and the last reaction was posted May 21 2016 . The " someone " decided to downvote these posts possibly because of the fact that these liveries are no longer available even though as I have made perfectly clear in the past , this was not a decision I wanted to make in the first place . Aerosoft decided to remove my American & SAS repaints all by themselves , DetCord or myself NEVER asked for this to be done and in fact ignored the PM I sent regarding this . I have often been contacted via PM by others asking for certain liveries to be made available but will no longer be doing this if this kind of reaction is going to be the norm . One of the " reactions " was regarding Virgin America , in this topic : I made a full public apology to the VA , improved the textures and added the two new A321's in their fleet . I later contacted the virtual airline and instructed them to download all of the liveries and host them on their own site with my permission , I have no idea if they did so but I gave them several days to achieve this . As I am not the only person who has spent time making liveries for the Airbus series ( at no cost to the forum members here ) , I can only suggest that 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 . John
  18. I eventually discovered that only my American liveries were removed from the server , not ALL liveries as stated in my " intellectual property " topic . As I wrote in the first post above , NOWHERE in any of my other posts did I ask for any liveries to be removed at all and I had no intention ( at the time ) to do so . However , receiving 5 downvotes in my original post for stating this is proof enough of the toxic atmosphere here , also no-one apparently disagreed with the downvotes either and THAT is the reason that I reversed my original decision . Having recently made a list so that I was able to keep track of which airlines ( and registrations ) I had painted , I can only say thank you to the 21000+ people who have downloaded these liveries . That Aerosoft are planning to no longer include the N911UY livery in the next A3XX upgrade is understandable but why also include a disclaimer that the livery was created by ... when it is no longer there ? I fail to see the logic in that . My " mistake " was simply expecting my name ( and Detcord's ) to be included in the manual as the " creators " of N911UY without any further expectations . For those who seem to think that I only painted Airbusses to receive " free " products , I can only say that I obviously wasn't very good at doing that in the 7 years that I have been active here , nor have I ever asked for anything . In all openness , I did receive 2 products in October 2014 after the complaints that were made that the Painters Forum was closed ( and later re-opened ) . I EXPECT that ALL of my uploads will be removed within the next 24 hours as I am unable to do so myself . I find it ridiculous that uploads have been removed without asking but when I DO ask , that it does not happen .
  19. It is now abundantly clear that anything I do or say here is going to be downvoted by a small group of faceless " keyboard warriors " who have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt the comment I made above . As I have no idea who these " keyboard warriors " are I have no way to thank them personally for helping me with the following decision . With this in mind I am now asking ( demanding ) that ALL of my uploads here on the server be removed with immediate effect ( or be allowed to do so myself ) . Sorry to other members but I would not tolerate this from a work colleague , so have no reason to do so here . So CONGRATULATIONS !! You win . I have no intention of closing my account here as I have several Aerosoft products in my possession that will ( possibly ) require updates in the future .
  20. First of all I would like to make it perfectly clear that NOWHERE in any of my last posts did I state that I wished to or was removing ALL of my uploads here . I also see no reason to contact any Aerosoft staff via email ( behind closed doors ) as I personally have nothing to hide or have any ulterior motives for any decisions that I may have to make , now or in the future . I do NOT have a " hidden agenda " and have been nothing but open and honest in the 7 years that I have been active here . That I now discover that several uploads have been removed ( not ALL as stated ) without being told exactly what has been removed is something that I just cannot understand , having just spent several days uploading , why would i now be removing them ? What does bother me though is the petty behaviour of some forum members regarding " reputation points " as witnessed by myself in the Screenshots forum . On the competition page someone decide for whatever reason to downvote a screenshot , that I chose to comment on that ( and upvoted so the total was 0 ) can hardly be a bad thing , that I have now been downvoted at least twice ( at the time of posting ) just proves what I posted earlier ... " The whole reputation points system is open to abuse as staff here know , this happens everywhere , not just here . Why do you think that AVSIM disabled the downvote button ? I never asked for a reputation , that is down to other forum members and certainly not the reason I upload and post here . " If someone has a problem with anything I post at least have the courtesy to explain why to me personally instead of hiding behind your keyboard .
  21. Why on earth would someone downvote the screenshot above ? Sorry Aharon can't give you 2 votes .
  22. First of all , I had no idea that Aerosoft was such a small company that can only offer support for one product at a time , secondly , I am not privy to the vacation plans of the Aerosoft staff , so can hardly be blamed for that . According to post #3 of this very topic the disclaimer page was ALREADY in place ( July 16 ) , as I later pointed out this was not so . Other flightsim related sites do have such a page as standard , so maybe the simple solution is to upload elsewhere . I did not start out asking for " freebies " as anyone seems to think , although I was " triggered " by the posts made by Mathijs in the CRJ topic ( #17 #19 and #23 ) .With post #22 ( even with a smiley ) , it seems I am not the only person who felt entitled enough to ask the same . As for Aerosoft staff not being available 24 hours per day , funny that , as that is what the forums members seem to expect anyway . Don't forget , not everyone is in the same time zone but as I live in Europe and posted at 07:00 I wasn't expecting anyone to have to get out of bed to reply . I also waited a further 24 hours before adding to the previous post . The whole reputation points system is open to abuse as staff here know , this happens everywhere , not just here . Why do you think that AVSIM disabled the downvote button ? I never asked for a reputation , that is down to other forum members and certainly not the reason I upload and post here . As for the American livery included in the product , I never asked for anything there either , but I did expect to at least have my name ( & DetCord's ) added to the manual , or was that too much to ask for ?
