  • Greetings Cale
    Good to find you here, because the Orbithangar review system doesn't give a chance to reply.
    First up, thanks very much for the good reviews, and congratulations on the success of your XR1 skins.
    Next, I want you to know I gave you credit for the idea for the shuttle-like skin
    because it really was your idea and you went ahead and did your own set for the XR1 while I was still at the headscratching stage, so it seems right and proper to me. It was a very good idea too, judging by the download figures for both our skinpaints a few folks wanted a shuttle-like paintjob. I am very pleased. It was in fact quite challenging, so I am really happy with the response.
    Also, I wanted to let you know that I won't be doing any more skinpaints for a while, as I want to get even further out of my depth and try for a simple mesh and spacecraft3 number next. I promised my 10 year old son that we would make a working Orbiter model of a spacecraft he drew for me for the purpose. Like most 10 year olds nowadays he's a bit of a videogame nut and he has talked about game developing as a job, so I want to give him an exposure to simple modelling and coding so he gets a rough idea of what really goes on. If it works out I'm going to post it, but who knows when that'll be...
    So regarding XR1 skins, if you want it I give you permission to port/copy any bits of my paint scheme you want to use over to your own XR1 skins, because you seem to be a jolly decent chap and when you mentioned the possible nose mod you said you'll give me any due credit, which I appreciate. I can't see me doing an XR1 skin in the forseeable future, and you're already in there doing them. It's easy to be misunderstood without visuals, so I hope I am not coming across as arrogant. Scorpion SK was really good about giving me permission to use his white skin however I wanted, so I reckon I should have the same attitude.
    Finally, thanks for taking the trouble to communicate, and good luck with your own
    Orbiter explorations, in whatever direction you choose to travel.
