Hi!
Some days ago the Dave's Buran 4.8 was posted at OrbitHangar, but the model is from 2005, very outdated! I love the main Shuttle Fleet models, but this old Buran model isn't very realistic because of the nosecone without details, and the black area inside the payload bay doors, and the payload bay floor texture is very low-res. If someone can update this model, I'll be grateful.
Thanks...
Felipi

I'd prefer not...

If new meshes and textures are necessary, then I would prefer that someone also make a new add-on for the Buran. Quite frankly, I find Don Gallagher's models and textures more than adaquate for my use and my add-on vessels. If you want "prettier" pictures, watch YouTube.

I downloaded this picture from a Russian website on Buran, and quite honestly it looks very similar to Don's model. Plus, the model runs very well on my older laptop as well as my recent Win7 Dell.

Somewhere, but not here.
Well Felipi,

Gimme time, and I might be able to tweak the textures to give them more detail. I will need time to work on them, so don't expect them real soon. ;)

But as David said, the model and texture "are" meant to be low in detail to reduce stress on framerates, especially framerates on older computers.

:cheers:

But low detail doesn't says that the model need to be so old and low detailed... it's not smooth. A good example of this is the Shuttle Fleet models, they're smooth and are detailed, but the fps are OK. But the Buran is very, very poor in details... A model update would be amazing!!!
Thanks by the replies! :thumbup:

Do you see the bugs in the Buran mesh and some bugs in the texture?

Don has provided a new mesh

Donamy has sent me an updated mesh for Buran; when I get time to adjust the thruster locations I'll update the package and release a new model.

Thanks Dave! I know I'm very demanding, but that's because I want a Buran really updated to the 2010 P1 version. Thanks to Donamy too ...

In 1989 I was lucky enough to see Buran at the Paris Airshow in Le Bourget with my own eyes ( this was when I still lived in Holland) and I found some of the pictures I took way back when.
The one picture shows the location of the nose engines pretty good.

Wow, cool. Is it the one that was in space? Sometimes I want to be 20 years older... Enterprise was also in Europe 1983... A final world tour for one of the shuttles before resting in a museum forever would be amazing... Well, at least we have OK-GLI...

Now this is truly hillarious; after some digging I found a picture of myself ( in 1989) with Buran in the background.
I'm the skinny kid with the sunglasses and denim jacket next to my younger brother.
Now who can say that that they have a picture of themselves with Buran :lol:
Looks like I still have tons of images of Buran from that airshow.

Here's a closeup of the nose section.

Amazing pictures Yoda! The Russian Space Shuttle Fleet had 5 vehicles... But the Buran was the first and the only vehicle to be completed.
The Shuttles are the Buran, the Ptichka, the Baikal and another two spacecrafts.

I found an amazing website!! There are diagrams and pictures of the Buran spacecraft!
http://www.buran-energia.com/bourane-buran/bourane-consti.php
In the menu you can see under the tab Composition several components of the Buran!!!

Here is a poster of the Buran

And here is a picture of the Baikal shuttle, the Baikal was planned to send the first crewed russian space shuttle to the space...

But sadly the Buran program was cancelled...
