Hi everyone, im trying to make a Su-30KI mod based on Marc's Su-27 using a SKM cockpit with my own camo skin, and i tried getting the flag of Indonesia on the aircraft in the decal.ini of the skin and i showed nothing so i made a 650 x 400 Jpeg of the flag and converted it to .tga and it was 739kb and it looked like the picture below. so i thought the pic / file must be too big. Then i re made the flag with a 8 x 4 jpeg and it was a 1kb file, and it was the same problem. i tried lowering the scale all the way to 0.003 and nothing changed. 

But then i notice the default 51D has the Indonesian flag if i change the nation to Indonesia in single mission, soo is there a way to just get the national flag of it and how?

Decals need to be square (128x128, 256x256, etc) with an alpha channel and with about 10 pixels of clear border (i.e. image must not touch the edge of the square). Converting a jpeg to a tga you need to add an alpha channel.

as spinners says decal background should be square....actual decal can be any shape o\c...heres quick n easy 

method same with ps6 etc  flag decal name is what you need....

so....say Wales Dragon.TGA

in decal ini....

[Decal002]
MeshName=Tail
DecalLevel=2 you can make country specific decal levels for country with certain numbers if the flag is set specifically...look up decal tutorials in KB
DecalFacing=RIGHT
FilenameFormat=Angel\Wales Dragon
Position=-7.1957,1.270
Scale=1.40
DecalMaxLOD=3

Thanks Spinner but literally just got it to work seconds ago :V sorry but thanks

But one more question, is there a way to make a aircraft red side or blue side since ik the J-11's i download are red side same as the Su-30KI (Copy of Marc's Su-27) is also red side but i want it to be on Blue side to not get paired up with the J-11 or face F-22's...

I believe the nations.ini sets all the default side of nations, so maybe looking into that would help you. Or you can make another plane and set it to a friendly nation so you can do it that way as well.

Another easier method is changing the aircraft in a saved mission to fly on the Blue side. It's what I do for screenshots as REDFOR planes are on the Blue side so I can take a screenshot.

the alpha you show in pic is reversed....when done painting...select area outside of the image and then select inverse then add as alpha.....save as tga not jpg...jpgs wont show transparencies it will be a block of white or black...

There's an Indonesian Flanker skin in the SF1 downloads section:

<cough> Userlist.ini. Which I"m sure that doesn't have already.

in data ini:

Exported=TRUE

ExportStartYear=

ExportEndYear=

ExportedToEnemy=TRUE

 

I'd suggest looking at the Vampire, Hunter, and Meteor data and user list inis to see how it's done.

LilLucy, congrats on being one of the few that changes the game to what you want (otherwise known as modding) rather than asking others for the change. that said..

take the time to look through both the knowledge base and previous threads. theres alot of info from near a decade (yeah i just said it) of SF2 modding and even longer of base Thirdwire modding. there is even possibly the very mods you are looking for buried in threads or Download sections

takes time, but is well worth it.

thanks mate, im currently looking on how to start making cockpits so i can re use the Su-35 on SF1 and make it into a Su-35S for SF2 with my own design cockpit (currently using the SU-35 cockpit on Su-37 as  substitute). Hopefully it turns out great and dont lag my potato off, kinda enjoying learning this game to mod since its quite simple compared to others. Cheers

      Hello everyone, has someone added a 3d element to an existing cockpit using the false pilot method ??? I want to make a modification to cockpit by putting elements and making them visible through the line "open cockpit = true", but I want to know the experience of some of you

      Enjoying the Korean Air War campaign overall. But sometimes, when things get very busy, the framerate will slow almost to a crawl. My setup is the following (relevant info):

      W10
      i5 2500 (non K)
      8GB Ram
      1TB 7200
      GTX 1050ti (newish drivers, forget the number exactly, 45X I think)
      Sound Blaster Z
      Do I need a serious upgrade to cut through the slowdowns and framerate drops?
