Very smooth, just these white... covers? Near the hatch. They stand out in a really bad way.

Yeah - they are supposed to be the 'inside' of the hatch - I'm still working on those graphics, a light grey perhaps? any sugestions?

With that cool red hatch, I think you can make them simply uniform with the rest of the roof... Their square shapes stand out even more than their color.

It's something to look into that's for sure.

Right now I'd like to know if people want an upgradeble 2 stage version of the Blackbird of just simply the darker coloured version.

If by 'inside' you mean the inside of the craft, then you could literally make the hatch "open" as in: transparent.
The floor tiles (all tiles actually) can be transparent (aka empty graphics).
(I would still not make tiles completely transparent, since I had bizarre behaviors; so for example keep the borders of the tile leaving all the inside empty).
Once you have a "hole" on the roof, the real craft interiors are seen thought it naturally.

Umm...  Its actually supposed to be a lift if you look closely.

By 'Inside', I mean the underside if the hatch, that becomes visiable when you flip it open - like the inside of a cubbord door, or the underside of a washing machines lid.  I'm already use those mechanics in the lift if you look at it closely.

Ah, I understand now. My solution is wrong then.

Hey. I'm considering adding the Blackbird to Redux since I need a fast transport to replace the current Skyrider, would that be OK with you?

Sure - Just give me credit for the work, try not to change too much, and it should be fine.

Also let me know if there are any graphics / Mcd / LOFtemps problems.

Thanks, I haven't made my mind yet on how to better use it on my mod. Graphically I won't change anything about it, only how to use the map - either it will be an XCom craft, or an enemy craft or even as a specific map in one of my terrains. But you'll be properly credited, whatever the use.

The lattest nightly (2016-01-27 23:25) lets you use craft for manufacturing - I might be able to use this, I'll do some experimenting this weekend.

Maybe you want to add Russian translation ;-)..

Hi All - This is being posted in all my threads.

This is a Note to everyone who uses my Mods.

On Monday morning, when I went to turn my PC on, there was a bang and smoke started to flow from the power supply. While my drives and data are intact, the power supply and motherboard are toast. (I'm posting this from a borrowed laptop at the local library)

I have got a replacement lined up, but I'm currently waiting for some parts to arrive. (They should be here in a week/week and a half) I'm sorry but untill my PC is back up and running I have to put any changes/fixes to my mods on hold.

However please keep any suggestions/requests/bug reports comeing in. I can still work with these - I just can't make any changes till I get my new PC.
