Mhm...
I just tried it in game, and indeed it is way too thin. :)

I'll revert to one of your other fighters until then, hehe.

"No, nor will i disarm the nukes."

"Sure you will."

I'd love to see a B2 Spirit in there :D

Already found a good schematic, but I don't really get the "blurred" part, so...I'll wait ! :wink:

Blurred part is easy. Draw the bomber in black on a white background, the invert the colours. Save this file as the normal bomber. Then, if you've been using photoshop, Filters -> Blur -> Gaussian blur, and try something like 1.4 as the pixel value, save as a *new* file, and volia! You've got the blur:

OK - I have redone the Harrier-Fighter and uploaded. The new Version looks much better, than the old version. So you want to update your files in case you use the Harrier.

...more keep coming... soon ;-)

Never hesitate, and always put preview on. If you change your mind, pick the histroy tab and undo the changes you made. :)

The Problem with the B2 is, that it is VERY wide... On an image with 128x128px it would look VERY small. That's actually the main Problem about the B2 Bomber. So one has to think about something with this bomber. Maybe not keeping the aspect ratio right... then it looks smaller, but after a certain point - it doesn't look right any more.

I already did take a look at the B2, but at the moment, I haven't found a suitable solution...

Maybe I can come up with one... But I am not sure.

Here you go, but I'm afraid Kinping is right, didn't think about aspect ratio in the first place...:-/ oh well, it never hurts to try isn't it ?

Say, could you make a Tu95/142? That would be amazing.
