Hi Beanie.

 

Assume you're using photoshop?

 

Merging layers is pretty much the final act of skinning...I tend not to merge them until I am 100% sure that the skin is worth saving at the final stage..or whether it needs more work.

When you say 'Alignment' what is it you're having trouble with?

 

Maybe a good idea to post a pic, so we can have a quick look? :good:

Hi

 

I am using Paint.net with a large amount of plug ins - I understanding layout is very close to Photoshop?

 

I am currently having troble with the under fusleage and whether I need to mirror the image?

 

Any help will be gratefully recieved - I will post an image later to day.

 

Great that we now have a skinners site - keep up the good work

Hi Beanie,

Skinning for OFF is an acquired skill so stick with it - it'll be worth it.

 

Although many of the aircraft models were tweaked for BHaH, some still have certain small areas that display rendering anomalies - where the model and skin texture file do not align correctly. Even for the OBD skinners, this sometimes proves too difficult to overcome and a compromise has to be made. These rendering anomalies will doubtless be tweaked out for future releases, but for now there are other issues to address first.

 

Also, the under fuselage area of the texture files is smaller in most cases than the related fuselage sides. This requires you to reduce the size of under fuselage detail by comparison to the fuselage markings. Stripes around the fuselage is a good example.

Hi Beanie,

Cheers Sandbagger. I am enjoying learning a new skill.

 

Having had an interest in Jasta colours, I intend (hope!) to be able to skin German aircraft of unidentified pilots, not currenetly represented in OFF and will be able to be used by players as their personal markings

 

Any advice - bad or good will always be gratefully appreciated.

 

Once I have completed the first couple of skins that I am currnetly working on I will up load them - although work in also getting in the way.
