    I'm almost finished. Ive run into a small snag. The leader stripe won't show wrapping around the bottom of the rear fuse. Other than that I've added most of the extra bits. Need to remove the USAF and place the number on the wings instead.

    Hello all. I'm trying to get Shadow Play setup. I've turned it ON. I've got it set to manual. I've got the notification icons setup for top RH corner of the monitor. I've selected "Ctrl+Bksp" as my hot key to manually start recording. And I've arty the folder on a seperate HAD. My problem is that when I enter P3D I don't see any icon and when I hit the hot may combo nothing is recorded? Any help would be appreciated. What could be missing?

    I neglected to mention that the F-80C has a slightly different set of panel lines/rivets. Willy created a separate set during the renovation, I didn't want to make the main kit more cumbersome, so it is included as a stand alone file. Feel free to bring layers over. However, I believe the whole PSD file will need to be resized from 2048 to 4096...I can't remember! You can then bring over to the main paint kit any of the layers you wish. They should be fairly similar in organization.

    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category FSX Utilities Description: Some basic info: 1. Photoshop CC 2015 was used to organize the layers into groups color coded and labeled identically for each PSD file. So if you're using another program sorry, that information and grouping might be lost...I just don't know. Also, Blending options are required for certain layers. 2. A basic knowledge of how to use Photoshop is required. 3. Texture_1 is the main fuse and set at 4096. The rest are 2048. If you want a good size, keep the the main fuse at 4096. If you're getting performance issues, scale the size down on the completed texture to 2048.

It's uncompressed at ~669mb compressed in .rar format using best compression at ~283mb.

    I have one in the works dvj. ;) 61st FS MI summer 1948. If you go to the texture redux thread a little ways down the page it's on the last page....anot early progress shot. If you want to add a little more "umff" to the current skins you can always try copying overy the specular textures from the bare metal paint to any of the painted ones. They won't be custom but they might work for you. I personally have done that. Please remember to save the originals in case you don't like how it turns out! Preference is a very finicky proposition!

    Willy has sent me his paint kit. He did most of the work on the updated paints. I set out the materials for the model (what reflects, shines, fresnel) which Henk implemented (Thanks Henk!!) and I created the bare metel schemes and the alpha and speculars for those. So I don't want to take the credit for this. That was my part...and testing it.... I'm going to add what I did for the bare metal to his paint kit, and then I'm making it a bit more friendly to work in. Hopefully you'll be able to use it! I will upload it today or tomorrow (likely). It's 4096x4096. I suggest saving the .dds files at that size and then resizing them to 2048x2048 for better performance in sim. Hope you all enjoy this bird! Edit: Just a quick note about thelse old Alpha models...at least from my...

    I found that issue last night...but had to work early and couldn't fix it in time...forgot about it when I left for work. it's a mirrored Specular texture. So you can do one of 2 things. make a copy of the opposite side specular and rename to the left side texture. Or you can use the speculars from the bare metal scheme (all of them). Those are the ones I'm using...but that's just my preference. Willy's are fantastic as is. I'm actually working on combining his with mine into a hybrid version...(evil cackle) ...

    These are the best tutorials I've seen to date. I personally used them and keep going back to reference them. The guy is a Photoshop guru...but you can apply what he does in any painting app. They are lengthy but well worth it. https://youtu.be/ztyJlKDbdwA

    It's both. Willy and Henk don't have TP. So it's able to use it if you have it. If you don't the TP features simply won't work. Model still has drop tanks and bombs selectable via hard point weight.
