Painting Aircraft Rego On One Wing

Recommended Posts

I am using Paint.Net to paint the aircraft registration beneath the left wing. However, there is only one set of wing textures file, hence, the registration appears under both wings.How can I configure the rego to appear under the left wing only?

It would help if you told us which aircraft you are painting and if it is for FS 9 or FS X . Your problem has nothing to do with Paint.net but the texture mapping of the model you are painting .What I can tell you is that with the C172R from Flight 1 it is not possible to paint the ( under ) wing registration ( it will be mirrored on the other wing ) . The Carenado models have the option to paint the reg but it is often on another texture sheet . With some Carenado aircraft the reg does not appear in FS X ( Archer II ) and the Cessna 172N the reg appears both on the wing upper surface as well as underneath .If it is the Archer or Mooney ( Carenado ) download a paint from someone else to see where it is located - I always place the reg if it is possible .John Glanville

If there is only one set of wingetextures available and the registration shows on both wings , there is nothing you can do about it.The maker of the model did not made a mdl file and texture set for separate left and right wings.Just forget this wingeregistration.RegardsLeen de JagereditThanks John, we were writing the same timeIf a registration appears on both wings ,having texturised just one , there is no other possiblilty available to place the registration.If there was such a possibillity the left wing would have stayed blank.Just in that case it obvious there is "somewhere" on the texturesheet ( or another texturesheet) a spot to fill in the registration.Having the same reg on both wings always means there is nothing to do about it.Whenever a painter creates a texture wich appears on the plane on a disired and the same time on an undesired spot, the painter has a problem only the maker of the model can solve for him.

OK, I thought as much as well.I tried creating another layer or creating another texture file for the other wing set, but the model may disregard the new file.I am working on an A330 for FSX, btw.
