Skinning in FSX (help please)

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys


Been skinning in OFF for a while now, and wanted to try it in fsx.


It's clearly a different process altogether...not managed a single result as yet, just problems


Does anyone know of a reasonably good newbie tuitorial online they could point me at please?


The skin I have made only shows up in specular over-ride in FSX..or worse..crashes to desktop


Thanks :drinks:

Try here....




There are some good tutorials fonts and color chips on the site as well.


What program do you use to repaint your aircraft? I use Abacus' FS Repaint as an interface and do the actual painting with GIMP and adding artwork and lettering with PaintDot Net. You might want to see if the bird you are trying to skin has a paint kit made for it, that saves a lot of grief. You also may want to go here for info and the DXTBMP program...




I can't give any advice to you for FSX as all my work is for FS9 but I hope this helps you out.
