  1. View File F8F Bearcat Redrawn Lines, Rivets, etc.. Redrawn Lines, Rivets, etc.. for the Geo's F8F Bearcat. It can be used for SF1 or SF2. Add your own paint, dirt, details, decals and weathering... I can't remember why I made this template (I must have had some extra rivets laying around) as there are already some excellent skins for this plane by Geo, Pappychksix, paulopanz and Wrench and much of this template was based on some of those skins. This is a WIP-Finish-It-Yourself template and is in Photoshop .psd format at 2048 pixels. It has redrawn lines, rivets and various bits. It can be reduced for those with low spec computers. It's still a bit rough around the edges, but you can smooth out any rough edges to your desires. ----------------------------- If you want to make the lines and rivets darker or lighter, this template allows you to do that by adjusting the opacity of the lines, rivets or any layer of this file. You can also 'Click' off any layer you don't wish to use, such as the rivets layer if you don't wish to have any rivets. To use it you must have a paint program that reads/modifies .psd files. Then you can adjust the specular, glossiness and/or reflection entries in the skin's texture.ini file to get the skin to your liking. I use the poor mans' method of bump mapping. I don't have the needed software or skills to create real bump maps. I use two template layers: one black the other white. The white layer is below the black layer and offset one pixel up or down and one pixel left or right. Then adjust the opacity of each layer to create a 'shadow' effect. When done right it gives the illusion it's 3D. --------------------------- Credit and Thanks to Geo for this nifty little jet. I'm releasing this under the Combat Ace Fair Use Agreement. Use it anyway you wish for personal use. For any other use, please contact me first. If you find any problems with it, please PM me. If you improve it, please PM me a copy. Thanks to all who are helping me learn to skin by direct involvement and/or by inspiration. If I forget or miss anyone who deserves credit for anything I release, I apologize. I have no intent to abuse or misuse anyone's property or claim it as my own. Please contact me to correct any error. Geary Submitter Geary Submitted 07/17/2019 Category Skin Templates

  3. Good. I couldn't see the stenciling very well and wasn't sure what some of it said so I had to guess.

  8. Yeah, occasionally I think I get normal, but it's usually by accident. When I first started making templates, it was because I wanted to paint planes. Seems I'm not very good at painting. I usually end up REPAINTING someone else's work, such are yours, with my redrawn lines and rivets, etc. Although, if it just takes splashing on paint with a bucket, I can do that. Guess I'm better at making canvas for other painters. Either way, works for me as long as we still make skinners and skins. Some models, like Russouk's little beauties are great for making templates. Well done planes.
  9. Thanks, Looks interesting. I wonder how normal Mr. Normal is.
  10. I've been a flight sim addict since the late '80s. Think I've owned and flown 90 percent of the flight sims sold since then in the U.S. and Europe. For all it's 'faults' this is the best overall flight sim I've every flown. Some have better graphics, some better flight modeling, etc... but overall, this sim allows us addicts to do easily more with this game than any other available. That's why most of us are here. I'm grateful for the game. Although a bit aged and not perfect, it's still my flight sim of choice. I find it difficult to complain about something that's given me so much fun over the years.
