Texture files

Recommended Posts


I was wondering if I could get some help with the texture files on the newer carenado models. I understand the painting part without a layered paintkit. What I don't seem to get are the different texture files in the folder and what their function is. For example in a DA-62 you'll find, CDASD_ext1 where I do the painting and save ias a dds in dxt5, then you have CDASD_ext1_spec and in some other models other files with different characteristics. I assume it has to do with the light effects and shading and so on, I just don't know how the paint itself should be modified to fit these formats.
