Paint kit Question?

Recommended Posts

I asked this once before, I think, but could not find it! In the Beech 1900 Paintkit, what are the Full fusalage sides textures used for? They are not in the main texture folder with the Aircraft, so what is the specific purpose? Best, Glennhttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/78494.jpg

Glenn,the full fusalage sides are used to paint your livery. These are then cut and pasted into the relavent textures maps. If you're not using these textures then you're probably creating extra work for yourself. Paint the left side completly then paint the right side by copying any graphic element from the left, paste that into the right side texture, and if it's text, flip that horizontally so that it reads reversed on the right fuse. Confused???Think of if this way. The left side in the paintkit is mapped as you see it onto the model. The right side in the paintkit is mapped by applying what you see to the INSIDE of the right side of the model so when you view the right side of the plane in the sim, any lettering is displayed correctly.One day I'll get to that paint tutorial...

Please do Pete! Although I don't have the latest editors, it would be nice to see how stuff like dirt (smudge or something), metallic looking reflections and images/logos are put on the sides ;)Geoffrey BaleanCanberra, AU (YSCB)http://www.hifisim.com/images/as2004proudsupporter.jpg http://www.vozvirtual.org/images/pmdgforumsignature.png"Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.
