Hi Simmers, I happened to notice the other day that there is now well over 1000 textures available for Flight Sim that I have created over the years. This does not include the many hundreds of textures that I have done for various Virtual Airlines and several designs that I have done for Real Airlines and aircraft. Access to these textures is of course available through my site at: http://www.gjsmith.net I have been tinkering with textures since the very first release of Flight Sim 95 (lightly experimenting) until FS98 came out and then I got really addicted to texture repainting. I have persisted and survived through thick and thin for a lot of years now and most of it has been great fun. Fortunately over the years I have been able to achieve some notoriety (some good and some bad) for my work with many releases of my creations through hundreds of Flight Sim sites, various magazines (including PC Pilot) and other medias. I wont bore you with statistics, other than that for over 10 years, I have been pumping out textures and providing them to simmers throughout the world. Download rates are consistently in the many hundreds of thousands each year. My tinkerings go back to early 1996 and in those days, through to early 2001, they were provided through my business site (www.gjsmith.com) In 2002 I created GJSmith.NET to specifically cater to the simming needs of the community. For those who would like to have a look as just some of my work, below are a few slide shows of my Textures and other Flight Simulation work across a broad spectrum of textures and scenery creation. http://www.gjsmith.net/public/Transload_Carriers.jpg Collection of images for Transload Carriers http://www.gjsmith.net/public/Transload_Carriers.html http://www.gjsmith.net/public/Transload_Scenery.jpg Collection of images for Transload International Airport Scenery http://www.gjsmith.net/public/Transload_Scenery.html http://www.gjsmith.net/public/Transload_AI_Traffic.jpg Collection of images for Transload AI Traffic http://www.gjsmith.net/public/Transload_AI_Traffic.html http://www.gjsmith.net/images/Textures/YTMD-SS.jpg Collection of images for Transload Military Base YTMD http://www.gjsmith.net/private/Transload/Transload_Military_Base_YTMD.html http://www.gjsmith.net/public/G_J__Smith.jpg Collection of images of some GJSmith liveries http://www.gjsmith.net/public/G_J__Smith.html http://www.gjsmith.net/public/FlyScotJet_com_3.jpg Collection of images for FlyScotJet Airlines http://www.gjsmith.net/public/FlyScotJet_com_3.html http://www.gjsmith.net/public/MJC_Dash_8.jpg Collection of images for the MJC Dash 8 http://www.gjsmith.net/public/MJC_Dash_8.html http://www.gjsmith.net/public/mikestone.jpg Collection of images for Transload Flights (Slide Show created by CEO Transload) http://www.gjsmith.net/public/mikestone.html http://www.gjsmith.net/public/IFC_Aircraft.jpg Collection of images for IFC Liveries (2005) http://www.gjsmith.net/public/IFC_Aircraft.html Each slide show is approximately 1.5meg in size - Click on image to run a html version of the slide show. All very safe and quite entertaining. You will notice that in some of the slide shows that I have done some tinkering in "FS Scenery" - my first excursion was with modifying the Carrier 2006 package into a dedicated TRANSLOAD Virtual Airline package - creating tons of special textures and modifying many aircraft to work as AI for the package. I have become more adventurous since with the creation, from scratch up, of the Transload International Airport and just recently the Transload Military Base YTMD. Note: The Transload Scenery is available through Transload Virtual Airlines - one of the biggest VA's on the net with hundreds of liveries created by, you guested it, me: http://www.transloadairlines.com Anyway, just wanted to let you know that I am still tinkering and still trying to provide the flight sim community with things that will bring enjoyment and fun to their flight sim flying. So if your having a quite day and want to get hold of some fun textures and aircraft - then pop on over to http://www.gjsmith.net and have a browse, I am sure that there is something there that you will enjoy. Regards and as always, happy simming.
