  1. Exactly. You can export anything to a LOD, but you cannot import a LOD into Blender (or 3DMax or whatever)
  2. Here's a quick installation guide: 1. Start Blender 2. In the Menutab go to "File", then "User Preferences", then "Add-Ons". 3. In the "Add-On"-Window click on "Install Add-On from File..." on the bottom and select the Add-On-File "io_export_sf2_lod.py" 4. Select Support-Level "Testing" and you should see "Import-Export: Strike Fighters 2 LOD Exporter". Check it 5. In the Menutab under "File"->"Export" you should see "Strike Fighters 2 LOD (.lod)". That's it.

  4. You can use the colorpicker on the above referencephoto in the fuselage-area between the stab and the wing (no shadows or direct sun) to pick the color. Then you can further adjust, but you have the general color and can go from there. Maybe that helps.
  5. Thanks guys! I clean up everything regularly to remove leftover or double vertices - a very good hint in general! The solution was simple - I moved the vertex on the red stripe a tiny bit aft and it was smoothed again and then I did the same with the vertex on slat to line everything up again.
  6. Hey there, for some time I'm trying to learn Blender to finally create own models one day. While some things are quite easy to achieve, others give me headache... So are there others around, that play around with Blender and try to be creative? ;) Maybe we can share our knowledge and help each other out with tips, hints and so on. A first problem, that I'm fiddling with atm and that I don't really get: Wing was smoothed and Autosmooth is set to 60°. After cutting the Slats out, the leading edge of the slat is still smoothed, while the wings leading edge isn't anymore. What can I do, to get rid of this?
  7. WIP o Trabajos en progreso

    Nice one! I'm really looking forward to that (and maybe new models of some other variants aswell). I once started a TA-4F in blender, but since I lack the skills, I could not proceed very well. If you're interested I can send, what I have...maybe it can save you some time.
  8. DCS Air to Air Refueling Attempt

    Grats! But the music....oh my....
  9. Cool idea and good luck! I would go for rivets. From looking at close-up pictures, the plane had lots of rivets. Make them small and with reduced visibility, so that they are more visible you closer you get. Have a look at my 4k-Skyhawk-Templates to see what I mean. If you need help, just say so. :)
  10. I can send you 4xx- modex decals, when I'm back home in the evening. Edit: I've seen, you managed the modex-issue, so nevermind.
  11. From my understanding using only the 3 last digits on the tailnumber could lead to confusion (86-0234 and 86-1234 would have the same tailnumber with only 3 digits). That might be a reason. Of course that applies only, if you acquire lots of planes in a fiscal year. I'm not that familiar with USAF. USN had their bureaunumbers and sometimes numbers were reserved for contracts, that were later canceled. The numbers were (often, maybe always) not reused. If that is the case in USAF too, then you would not need huge amounts of planes to get the scenario above. Lot's of guesswork from my side here.
  12. Some Scooters: VMA-225 Vagabonds H&MS-15 Angels (Detachment on USS Hornet - all 4 planes were named after "shady girls") "Mamie Stover" "Polly Adler" and "Ko Sisters" "Fanny Hill" VA-192 Worlds Famous Golden Dragons - Always amazing, what level of detail is still possible in SF2 -> ravenclaws great weapons! ...and a final "BOOM"
  13. Afaik there is none - you just can set up a maximum, not a minimum. I encountered the problem on another case. AGM-12 Bullpups - the small one (B) uses a rail (and therefore has a different position on the pylon), the big one (C) does not and there was no way to rule one out on a station since both are CGR. I ended up using a special weaponstation for just the big missile with a "specificstationcode="-entry for the station and created a copy of the weapon with that code. Not beautiful, but it worked.
  14. Live and let live. If he likes the design, why not. It's a what-if forum in the end...
  15. A-4C from VA-12 Flying Ubangis in 1970. The last A-4C in Vietnam (together with the ones from VA-172 on the same Carrier).
