I will monitor for more spam attacks. If there are, sadly I will need to enforce registration in order to post. That at least slows them down a little.
I had to shut down the forums due to a mass flood of spam from
bots. I dont have the time to constantly delete these post’s AND work on the
SportStar SP1 plus the next product. I will try to re-enable it in 24 hours and
see if the bots have gone away. If not, I will need to enforce user login for
post’s, and thats something I dont want to do. Sorry for the inconvenience!
Just wanted to let everyone know that the livery pack is almost finished! Soon the SportStar will be updated too SP1 with new details, bug fixes, and the added livery’s! We are hoping for an early September release of the SportStar SP1.
Here are some screenshots of the custom livery from the contest winner! The metal flake is a new technique I found (new for me at least) and I think it looks really cool, but would LOVE some feedback from the community and customers.
Just wanted to give everyone a preview of some of the custom livery’s in the free add-on pack that will be released after the contest! Hopefully these will give some people some insperation!
Also, if you havent read yet, we are holding a contest for custom livery idea’s! Read below for more details, and remember, you only need to submit a photo of a cool paint job! Artist’s can still download the livery kit and make there own for bonus points 😉
So, I am planning to make a KCFS Livery pack free to all of our customers as a “Thank You” for there support. So far I have made a few great livery’s, but I NEED MORE!!! This is were you, the community, can help pitch in!!!! Also, get a little somethin in return.
Here is how it works. Im going to make this contest as simple as possible, so that ANYONE can enter it, with or without any artistic skills! Posted below will be a livery kit for the SportStar.
In it is a layered PSD file for people who have Photoshop, and a JPG for people who dont. So if you have other programs like Gimp or even Windows Paint, you can use it!
Also, if you dont have any digital painting skills, thats fine! You can find a interesting photo of an aircraft livery and POST IT! Thats right! Find a photo of an aircraft that you think has a really cool and or unique aircraft livery that you would like to see on the SportStar and post it on this forum!!! ANYONE CAN ENTER!!!
Also, for those skilled livery painters, the full SportStar paint kit is also available!
So, what do you get? Simple. The winner(s) will get a free copy of the SportStar! If they already have the SportStar, they can opt to give there license to 1 friend, or save there license and use it on a free copy of our NEXT (un-announced) product!
#1, all entries must be posted by Thursday, 8/11/2011 Midnight PST. I will announce the winners Friday.
#2, ALL entries agree to let me use there concept in a free livery regardless of if they win or not. Credit will be given if your livery concept is used.
#3, You can only submit a maximum 5 (five) concepts, so make them count! Dont flood the thread!
#4, Entries must be in the form of A: JPG of the livery template, or B: A clear JPG of a real aircraft. Please post them in this thread.

winners that I like. I will also critique entries to help people zero in on what I like, and let them re-submit if they wish.
#6, Since I will be painting these livery’s, please dont make them too complex, see example below
cool livery, but would take me YEARS to paint with all the tiger stripes! Yikes!

I added some FSX screenshots in the Evektor product page! These screenshots were generously donated by Archammer from TMT and does a great job showing key details about the product. Go check them out by clicking the SportStar below.
Just wanted to give a quick shout-out to Pro-Flight! I wanted to thank them for giving me access to there SportStar for our project. Being able to not only study the aircraft, but also do flight testing greatly helped us to make this a better product. If anyone is in the Seattle area and is looking to get an LSA license, just give them a call! They do LSA flight instruction along with Private, commercial, all the way up to instructor level!

I had a lot of fun talking with Archammer on Ten Minute Taxi Thursday night and wanted to thank him for being a great host! I did get a little long winded I think going on for over 15 minutes, but I had a LOT to say! You can watch the 40 minute long “After Show Show” with my interview below.
As I said on the show, hopefully the SportStar will go on sale TONIGHT! Looking forward to seeing everyone’s screen shots and hearing about there experiences! Word of mouth is always the best form of advertising!
