HiRes Templates for Stock SF2 A-4 Skyhawks (B, C, E, F, H, L)

Recommended Posts

HiRes Templates for Stock SF2 A-4 Skyhawks (B, C, E, F, H, L)


These are layered .PSD templates for Thirdwires A-4 Skyhawks (Stock planes) in higher resolution (2048x2048).

Different parts and UVMaps for many variants are included, so they work at least for all A-4B, C, E, F, H-Ahit and L-models.

Included are several different camos aswell.

 

A readme.txt is included and you should read it for further information.

 

If you got problems with it or have advices for improvements, just let me know. If you improve things by yourself, I would be glad to receive a copy of your work.

 

I release this under the Combat Ace Fair Use Agreement.

 

Credits and Thanks

==================

- Thirdwire and TK for a great game, nice models and skins these templates derived from

- all people, that helped me along the way with tips, opinions and their work, like Wrench, Soulfreak, dtmdragon, Eole2, Sundowner and many more!

 

 

Have fun

Rene/Nyghtfall

what file format are you saving in? if what you are loading isnt working, try using the same format as a skin that does work (jpg or bmp)

you have to export skin from Photoshop (or Gimp) into jpg or bmp file.

As daddyairplanes and yakarov said, they are Photoshop-templates, that you have to export into .jpg or .bmp in order to work correctly.

You also need to pay attention to the naming of the files - each variant of the plane has its own naming of files. Best way is to make a copy of one skin, rename it and overwrite the single files with exported files from the templates.

 

Btw: There are updated versions of this template available (split into different packs only due to size):

Templates for A-4C+L

Templates for A-4E+F (and derivates)

Thank you all for your replies,i have already tryed both BMP and JPEG formats but to no avail.I believe the problem mut be in the structure of the aircraft folder .

Im building a "customised" A4B for merc missions in "Burning Sands" campaign with "desert V4"mod.Watching after 20+ years the "Area 88"anime gave me the idea to "wear" my merc colors

again :biggrin:.Ibelieve the problem as i already mentioned abone is in the aircaft ini. 

TextureSet.ini

      View File SF2 TW A-4C+L Skyhawk layered Templates (4096x4096)
      TW A-4C+L Skyhawk layered Templates v1.0
      ============================================
      This is "my precious" - layered templates for TW's A-4C+L Skyhawks. These are also the replacement for the older templates I once released.
      These can be used to create Skins for Thirdwires A-4C, C_65 and L Skyhawks.
      Included is the standard USN/USMC Gray/White camo with up to 5 patterns (depending on part).
      Most markings come in several variations and/or colors.
      With the help of mue's great LODViewer I included UVMaps for the planes.

      Notes & Issues
      --------------
      - layergroups are reduced to just one level, so other software may be used without major problems from this PS-feature (though I did not test this in GIMP, etc.)
      - I removed all layer masks, as I was told, work with them is difficult or not really known

      Credits & Thanks
      ----------------
      Thirdwire + TK for the Skyhawk-models and a great game
      mue for his great LODViewer
      everyone that helped me active or passive in the process of learning to create skins/templates.
      If I forgot someone, contact me please! Also if you have problems or advices for improvements feel free to contact me.
      A final wish: If you like this template so much, that you create and release skins from it, feel free to give proper credit...

      Have fun,

      View File SF2 TW A-4E+F Skyhawk layered Templates (4096x4096)
      TW A-4E+F Skyhawk layered Templates (4k) v1.0
      ============================================
      This is "my precious" - layered templates for TW's A-4E+F Skyhawks in 4096x4096. These are also the replacement for the older templates I once released.
      These can be used to create Skins for Thirdwires A-4E, E_65, E_67 and F Skyhawks. Derivates of them (A-4G+K for example) should work too.
      Included are 2 Camouflages:
      - Standard USN/USMC Gray/White with several different patterns
      - experimental Camouflage from VA-155 in 1966
      Most markings come in several variations and/or colors.
      With the help of mue's great LODViewer I included UVMaps for the planes.
