Recommended Posts

I am new to the painting art and have a simple question.I have completed my daytime textures for the plane, but when the evening or night rolls around, the plane looks black and looses all of its texture.I know that I need to create a _LM texture, but how?Is there an easy way of converting my daytime textures to night?Thanks alot for any help.May the ground rise up to meet you....just not too fast!!

A very quick and dirty way is to take your day texture and darken it in the paint program. Any highlights will probably be too bright but it's just a quick method. If you're using PSP or Photoshop, you can adjust the relative brightness of highlights, midtone and shadows. You can also try a gamma correction.Peter http://bfu.avsim.net/sigpics/PeterR.gifBFU Forums Moderator[table border=2 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=1][tr][td][table border=0 cellpadding=8 cellspacing=0][tr][td bgcolor=#540000]http://bfu.avsim.net/sigpics/logo75t.gif[/td][td align="center" bgcolor=#FFFFF6]Bush Flying Unlimited"At home in the wild"Looking for adventure?
