My First Attempt at Custom Paint in OFF BHaH

Recommended Posts

Salute All,

 

Now that I have my new flight sim computer built, tweaked and running smoothly with "Over Flanders Fields - Between Heaven and Hell" loaded up and rolling, I decided it was time to sort out how to use the DXTBmp program and create some custom paint skins for these outstanidng planes. The program was a cinch to set up. I then followed Gousgounis' "Beginner's Guide to Aircraft Repainting" and with the use of my old Adobe Photo Deluxe BE software I was actually able to put together a not-too-bad first OFF BHaH paint job. I started with my favorite plane, the Camel, and added a pair of wide blue top wing stripes and color-coordinated wheel spats and rudder, then finished up with a snazzy billboard on the sides of the fuselage. Once you know the tricks, it is every bit as easy to paint planes in this sim as it is in RB3D. I like it...I like it a lot! :biggrin:

The "A" next to the lion is for Albertson as my virtual pilot name is often Nels Albertson or Louvert Albertson.

 

Salute,

 

Lou

Those look great, thanks for posting.

 

There's lots of FE activity in the forum here, but not much for OFF. I hope that changes. I'm a big fan of FE and am thinking of ordering OFF.

The skin looks great. Please upload it.

 

Maybe there is not much activity since the forum was just created! :biggrin:

Nice skins you built there Widsy. Of course the Camel is my favorite.

 

Gous, your tutorial made sorting out the custom skins easy as pie! Well done Sir.

 

Here is the Strutter tweak I made using the Paint.Net program I loaded up in my new 64-bit box. I just didn't feel right flying my B/R bus without "Mutt" on the sides. He's been winging with me for a good many years now and I'm glad I didn't have to leave him back in RB Land.
