Just a shot in the dark, but I was wondering if there is anyway you can get F-14A skins, which most of the F-14 skins seem to be made for, to work for the F-14A+/F-14D?

 

:dntknw:

I thought the model was the same.

 

FastCargo

 

Well, when I use them on the F-14A+ or the F-14D, sometimes only certain parts of the skins show up or they don't show up at all.

I'm with FastCargo on this. The last official word that I saw stated the only F-14 model on the market is the Mirage Factory model. You must be having some issue with the textures or paths.

 

Hmmm

 

Orrrrrr there were decals added on boosting the number of decals per mesh to the affected parts in excess of 4.

Can you post some screens?

Hey PD, the models are the same, no one's made a specific F-14D model per se, but there at least two different F-14 models AFAIK and the skins may not necessarily be interchangeable. But there can also be the odd texture 'issue' from time to time as with these skins from Dels:

I know why this ^^ is happening, just not how, hence, I can't figure out how to stop it other than not using 36 Sqn C-130Hs and C-130J-30s together. Individually they're fine.

 

Where did you get your Tomcat from?

Hey SayWhat?! Are you thinking the computer is getting confused?

 

Just an idea here.

Since both models are basically a C-130, and both call out the same textures perhaps slightly changing the name of the textures and their callouts in one model lod with a hex editer will cure that. Example, change one models Fuselage.bmp to Fuselag2.bmp and so on for the rest of the textures and callouts.

 

I don't know if it will work, I've never installed my C-130J download only the 130H so I've never experianced this myself.

I was thinking that renaming the aircraft and skins completely would do the trick, but that's a bit of an overkill. When I have changed the name of the texture in the past however, it usually results in the plane loading without the texture. I found this to be the case when I tried to add an F-16A skin to an F-16C, and this led me to believe that it'd hold true for the Tomcat...

Don't forget Bundy! I have an idea what I did, but I'm still convinced my computer has it in for me... :rofl:

There is 2 F-14 models both by the Mirage Factory. They are the US F-14A and the Iranian F-14. Everything else is a mod based on those. There is no, I repeat, no true F-14D out there yet.

those skin issues are a small bug from the game

 

the game can't manage different models sharing the same skin names simultaneously

 

I discovered it while painting the dual seat vipers which initially shared the signle seater skin names

 

while having both models in formation, skins were miexed up somehow

 

renaming the B model skins solved it
