Upgraded Airbus A380-800 with lights and "fly-by" camera
« on: December 25, 2018, 03:55:00 pm »

It's a pleasure to present here un upgraded version of Levi's
Airbus A380-800 model. To make the model more enjoyable I added
cockpit lights as well as emissive gauge textures, landing lights, navigation and strobe lights as well as gear lights.
It seems something had already been done on cockpit lights by uriah but
I worked on a version of the A380 without cockpit lights and so I decided to add my own.
Also in addition to the default external view (key "C") and pilot view I added some other first person view cameras which allow
some new nice views including also a
"fly-by" view as common in flight simulators as well as a
"formation-flight" camera that simulates the view of the plane from another plane.

Here is a demonstrative video of the upgraded airbus model.





download from here:

Love it!

How much of a task is it to change the livery?

Hi chomper. Thanks for commenting. Actually I have never done any aircraft livery repainting so I don't know how much effort it could take. If you are able to do it you can find the dds texture files in the C:\Users\user\Outerra\packages\fly77\Airbus_A380-800\liveries\lufthansa  and  C:\Users\user\Outerra\packages\fly77\Airbus_A380-800\liveries\house folders that you can open for instance with GIMP and repaint them. There seem to be numerous videos on youtube on how to do aircraft livery repaints. For sure you have stimulated me to have a look at them.

 It seems also there are ready made textures for the airbus 380 project. Can be downloaded from avsim (https://library.avsim.net/search.php?SearchTerm=emirates+a380+project+airbus&CatID=root&Go=Search). Will try to fit them to the outerra Airbus model   ;)
