    CLS F-117 see through VC!

    Now that I'm starting to get an understanding of editing textures I pulled the CLS F-117 out of the hangar. I stopped flying it because being able to see through the VC gave me sad feelings. I have been successful in blocking the see through side panels. So I've gone from this to this! I just took this texture and used the "preview transparency" icon and sure enough. Everything that is black here is actually invisible in the VC. I used the fill tool and changed it to grey which appears black in the VC so I'm happy there. (I also had to do the same with the main gear wheels as the cooling holes showed the background through the wheel.) Now, I'd like to ask this.. Does anyone know where are they hiding the bmp for the rudder pedals so I can fix them as well?

    I'll find out. I think it would be considered a repaint as I wouldn't be sharing any gauges or anything. If I get the okay I'll post it.

    Nice work, Josh.

    If you are looking for the pedals to fix, they are located on F-117 cockpit.bmp in the upper left corner.

    And if you know of any repaints... please share.

    Thanks.

    If at first you don't succeed, try, try,try again. ... or go read the manual.

    THANK YOU WARHORSE!!!! I don't know how I missed that for two days but sure enough there it was! Right where you said! (Maybe because I was looking for two pedals?) I still don't have my head even half wrapped around texturing yet. There are a few I'd like to do but I need someone sitting beside me to train me like a good monkey! At least I was able to do this. With 17 hits already it looks like others wanted it too. (I wonder how many simmers were like me and shelved it because of this particular problem?)

    As for repaints for it, I haven't found any yet. (Granted I haven't been trying too hard though.) I'd like to find Tony Tolin's plane from the 37th TFW right when it was unveiled as his was the first model of the F-117 that I built. However, as a fan of Lloyd Kaufman's Troma Films I'm perfectly content flying around in Toxic Avenger! (The flag display aircraft for Casper Weinberger is cool too.)
