  1. hahhahaha Merry Christmas and happy new year Santa
  2. oh good one
  3. Yeah the masking helps big time. Looking forward to seeing the final product. I have not done this i quite a while either and need to brush up on some skills. Making skins at a lot of fun and when you see the final flying around it is very rewarding. The guys over on BMS forums are helpful with all the posting they have done on these topics. Pretty much everything has been answered at some time. It is just a matter of finding that magic post you need the information from.
  4. what skins are those ? Semler?
  5. I use GIMP - Yes you can use photoshop and highly recommend that. I had to get a DDS file plugin. I use layers a lot. I am going to go over the entire jet and make a new skin with all the lines and rivets - But for now I am just going to do my tail artwork and put it onto the Generic BMS skin. I don't want to take somebody else work and overwrite it. BMS is fine (LOL) I do have templates for every F16 Jet made by RedDog. It makes doing art Work on them WAY EASIER as there are layers for everything. You can turn on and off bird slicers in the layers and the reinforcement plates on the later model F16 - Quite amazing skin templates.
  6. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1F6C5xmuOg6EAuP9Hr17pdelFGY3aGt4q see if you can get the files out of there =---- i never did the google drive thing yet these are the skins you OVERWRITE in the Objects floders ---- 36 37 38 and 39 are the tails ----- the rest are the entire jet... MASSIVE Upgrade to that jet ,,,,,, 12 files total. Check out my skin in the last pic --- i added the bombs from the pic below to it--- and all the numbers for the 4 jets are areal planes----- Thanks to RED DOG For the Template
  7. get with me on team speak later so you are not running around chasing your tail ... I can make life a lot easier for you on this topic.... there are little things you need to know... #1 how you going to open up a dds file and layer it? What software are you going to use? What compression for the output files? Ill chat with ya see ya data/terrdata/objects/KoreaObj data/terrdata/objects/KoreaObj_HiRes <---- BMS looks in here if you have HI RES Checked in the setup -----BUT It ALSO LOOKS in the first OBJ folder i said above most of your work will go in the low res folder...... im going to give you my skins from my block 30s....... take a look at them and the dds files ok? #1 Copy BOTH of Your Korea Objects folders. email me and ill send you the files for the block 30 F16s from Selfridge ANG base in Michigan. They are sweet but not used much as they are a very old block plane. But they are on our server. If you install this skin and fly that plane this skin will be on it. callsignstatic@gmail.com
  8. there is 1 file right now... i am working on making a layered file ... but here is the full .DDS File it is in your Korea objects folder ... 1075 and along with 1076 <------- Copy these and safe guard them b4 editing them ) ALSO they are in you Korea Hi RES Folder - There are 2 sets of plane skins (mentioned above 1075 1076) (SOMETIMES) You need to learn about the dif sizes - I have not done this in a while but ill be back on it in 24 hours they are basically double in size... Look up my tailart on the BMS forums... I made 4 tails for the F-16s that flew out of my home town a long time ago... that took me 2-3 weeks to learn to do that... it was not easy.... nothing is in a straight line and a straight line meets on another side of the grid ... you will see... that pitch fork is in 3 places on my f16 tail art -- and comes out perfect on the model I can already see this harrier is skewed beyond belief in the dds file - it does not match real life angles - going to be tricky to get it going... and i have no idea where the rudder is in the DDS file lol......
  9. Skin lessons 101 Skins are only viewable to yourself. We use F16 CM50 as an example. If I overwrite the skin file for the F16CM50 - every CM50 in the sim will have that skin on it. (it is a personal preference and will show up in MY screen shots.) If I run a flight of 4 F16 CM50s and you are my wing and I take a screen shot your plane will show up as the skin i have for plane #2 EVEN if You have a different skin. It is local files and they do not propagate across systems. That being said---- nothing shows up on servers in respect to the visual changes you have made. AND b4 you do any type of skin improvements or alterations make sure you backup the correct directories to revert if something goes crazy. There are integrity checks on the server and look into your DAT files (they dont care about skins) but once you start modding be aware of this and backup all files necessary.
  10. Making some Harrier Tail art . This is an actual paint from the VMA-513 Squadron. I need to skew it on a layer and get it all in the right position to lay onto the skin file. I am also going to "Dirty" up the Harrier a bit more and work on all the rivets and lines on it.
  11. Sorry Geek I jumped to conclusions that day you and I were on the server. I did not see anybody on the server for days and I was pretty much on it for 4 days at least 6 hours a day. I fly Harriers out of that base constantly and never saw a F-16 get fragged out of there by the server ever. When I did see it, I jumped to the conclusion you were fragging the flights. Sorry again. Sorry for the disruption pilots... ~Static
