Hi there,

I'm a fan of Flight Gear and have joined the Wiki to tidy things up as I come across them. If I don't fix them then and there on the spot, they'll go into the list below.

Screenshot Improvements

Quite a number of articles have screenshots which are 10 years old or more! While their historical staying power is impressive, their lower resolution and old graphics don't quite live up to modern expectations. Here are some articles I intend to take better screenshots for:

  1. 0}% completed Flying_Warbirds

Larger Projects

  1. 50}% completed Howto:Working_with_the_AC3D_file_format_in_Blender This article needs new sections about exporting, saving, caveats, etc.
  2. 0}% completed User:Ranguli/List of file formats This article needs a good deal of cleanup, but could also be a ton of work depending on how far I'd want to take documenting file formats used by FlightGear.
  3. 0}% completed Howto:Edit_a_livery unfortunately this article is really a "How to draw an owl" type of tutorial, and was of no use to me while trying to learn how to work with liveries. Once I get a better understanding of the concepts personally I'd like to redo this from the ground up.
  4. FlightGear Academy articles that need heavy reformatting:
