Making new repaints for the Carenado H850XP is very difficult . . .

Recommended Posts

It is not so hard to change the colors or stripes and to redo the N numbers, but working from scratch is a royal pain. I am struggling along at a snails pace with a new one with a hawker tail and bold stripes.

 

Regards,

LOL I did the top paint all ready - just never shared it as I was not sure about the combo but thats what I did - you reading my mind - luv that last picture you doing that I wouldn't mind taking at stab at that one

 

Notice how white the last pic is the careando seems a bit to dark - I have noticed that but now that confirms my suspicions

Well it looks like the base files would have to be cleaned up to get rid of that grime not sure why they have done this as it a a clean aircraft - have to see what I can do as I cant live with it :)

Richard,

 

The Carenado "clean" repaint is nothing near clean. I'm not sure how to clean it up without losing a lot of the subtle character. I did just the vertical stabilizer first and made it pure white. Lots of difference between white and Carenado white.

 

Let me know if you clean one up.

 

Regards,

Ray

Richard,

 

Thats because I have a plug-in I have that when I applied it twice it didnt destroy things I didnt want it to - I will send you a link to the two main textures this should make your life easy - just pay attention to the wheel and rims - I have a layered these files - if you lave it as is the tires will be to white on your texture 2 file you will see - have fun and a lot of luck lol - I will send pm after I load it up

Yeah, carenado are really not giving a **** about people wanting to customize the plane.

I'm sure they use some auto UV fit tool that makes it pretty much impossible due to parts being placed all over the file.

Yet for them is easy to load the model into let's say Substance Painter and it can be done in less then an hour.

Ah the auto uv program - they dont work that great as I have tried them - yes this is one big jig-saw puzzle - would be a lot of work to provide a proper paint-kit - that separates the men from the boys I guess Paul

Where to Download? Avsim doesn't have these

 

Good question, James. Seems there is not much around yet, and the first individual repaints will be highly welcomed... :rolleyes:

I have done a good amount of paints but they require a manual install - look for my posts mostly in screenshot forums with links - you need to search my name

Each one of these pages have a link to the download - may have to dig a bit on each page as link is not at the top on all - searching my name does not work took a while for me to find them
