Charlietuna, I'll take the job. Shoot me a PM with what you want, and I'll get working on it. I did also send you an email about it.

I am actually curious as well. The description.lua of either F-16 is rather empty, it so unclear how DCS calls the skins ...

EDIT30-04-2014: Check the F16a MLU folder, and look into the CMD liveries. In the description.lua is the clue you are looking for.

The original:
Code:
{"texture f-16-okras-r3.bmp f2 g0", 0, "R3" , false},
So, a edit might look like this:
Code:
{"texture f-16-okras-r3.bmp f2 g0", 0, "306sqn.dds" , false},
Do use the .bmp in the first part, it will not work otherwise.
Do use the .dds in the last part, again it wont work otherwise.
False means texture is within the liveries folder.
Hope this helps.

I do advise to start a little reading, starting here: http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=116901
A long read, but worth it, even if you are 'just' into making skins.

What kind of program are you using with DDS file who can't be open with dxt2bmp? DDS plugin in photoshop is not working too...
