Thanks, I was hoping for an overlay like this!

I was able to locate my problem areas - would it be possible to paint these fins individually for each side?

Curious if anyone can point out where the "Pilots Rank / Name / Call sign is located on the skin. I searched this thread but couldn't find it.

Thanks!

I'm looking for a little help with formation light panels.

I'm skinning a demonstration team and want to apply an alpha mask to the green color on the F18C_Bano.dds texture. My thought was if I make that part of the texture transparent, then it will not show up on the skin. Much like the BORT numbers.

I added an alpha channel to the file and saved it to the livery folder. No go. I then renamed the BANO file in the livery folder as well as the FA-18.zip texture file to see if the textures would fail to load and still the formation light panel textures show on the aircraft. Are these textures being pulled from somewhere else, perhaps?

I have the following in the description.lua for the skin with a modded alpha on the F18C_BANO.dds file in the livery folder:

--HeadLights and Self Illuminated Textures
--{"f18C_headlight_R", 0, "f18c_bano", false};
--{"F18C_headlight_L", 0, "f18c_bano", false};
--{"F18C_headlight", 0, "f18c_bano", false};
--{"f18C_headlight_KIL", 0, "f18c_bano", false};
--{"f18C_headlight_band", 0, "f18c_bano", false};
--{"f18C_headlight_band", 8, "f18c_bano", false};
--{"f18C_headlight_band_f", 0, "f18c_bano", false};
--{"f18C_headlight_band_f", 8, "f18c_bano", false};
--{"f18C_headlight_band_banno", 0, "f18c_bano", false};
--{"F18C_omni_banno_192", 0, "f18c_bano", false};
--{"F18C_rulezh", 0, "f18c_bano", false};
--{"F18C_aoa", 0, "f18c_bano", false};

I've noted that the Blue Angels skin is missing the formation light panels. I see nowhere in the description.lua a reference to a texture file. There's got to be a way.

Hey everyone, I have some questions about skins for the Hornet pilot model. Patches are done, new helmet skins are almost done, but I am stuck on the visors. I gave my group the option to choose their own (i.e. clear, mirrored, smoked, etc...) but I am struggling the get the results I am after. For mirrored I know that will involve adjusting the Roughmet. For the clear and different colors I have tried to adjust pilot_f18_visor and am definitely doing something. Note the bit of yellowing (I tried making the DDS completely yellow). However, the lens is still dark overall. Am I missing something? Thanks!
