Adding tail number plaque in VC

Recommended Posts

Hello,

How can I add the tail number to an existing (but blank) plaque in Virtual Cockpit?

Strangely enough, this is what I get in the Carenado Bonanza F33a (FSX) ... A black plaque with no numbers...

 

Which image file should I modify, maybe with photoshop? Where do I find it?

 

 

Thanks

In texture.common folder look for CARinterior_G.bmp and CARinterior_G_night.bmp. When you've edited them, make certain they go in the 'texture.your_paint' folder.

Having had a closer look, the plaque you're looking at is split between two textures.=PITA. You'll probably find it easier to make your own plate. Example below;

Yes, that would certainly work for me!

Could you please tell me a bit more how to do this?

Should I just modify directly the CARinterior_G.bmp ?

 

Many thanks!

Now you're asking! I'll go as far as to say this:

 

1: Open file in DXT1 Bitmap Manipulator

2: Send it to editor (Photoshop?)

3: Scribble on it to your hearts content. Then SAVE

4: In DXT1, 'Reload after edit' SAVE as the same name but in a different place. (Or every aircraft will have the same number.

5: You're on your own kid! :BigGrin:

Yes, I found out about that a couple of days ago. I'll remember that in case I ever do another Carenado paint.
