Default Custom Skin for Smokewinder possible?

I'me working on an Aerobatic Skin for the F-5 right now. So I wanted to ask if it is possible to onclude custom Smokewinders in the skin. I found out that it is possible to have Custom Drop Tanks, but I haven't found a skin containing missiles. Does someone know if they can even be referenced in the Description lua?

Yup, here is the lua line :
Code:
    {"Smokewinder" , 0 , "../CH Patrouille Suisse generic/Smokewinder" , false};
(replace the path according to your skin... Is it supposed to be a red'n'white skin ? )


Textures are in DCSWorld\Bazar\World\textures\AeroWeapons.zip
-Smokewinder_Diff.dds
-Smokewinder_NM.dds
-Smokewinder_Spec.dds


About the drop tanks, remember they're not converted to PBR. Roughmet textures won't apply.
If you (or someone else) needs the lua for drop tanks :
Code:
{"Material #0" , 0 , "ptb_275_diffuse" , false};
{"PTB_150" , 0 , "ptb_150_diffuse" , false};
DDS are also in in DCSWorld\Bazar\World\textures\AeroWeapons.zip

Thank you so much. Kinda new to skinning in DCS. Does it matter where in the Lua I put the line?

It's propably going to be Black and Jello

The words PBR and Roughmet are mostly gibberish to me, but i'me sure that in a few Months it will make sence. For now i get trough with Frankensteining LUA's and Skins.

About PBR and roughmet, just have a look at https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=193596.
If you want some more advanced readings about PBR, I suggest you to read this : https://academy.substance3d.com/cour...r-guide-part-1



The lines order in the lua doesn't matter as long as you insert them between the { }.
