If your making your own skin, it will go in that folder. If you want to add a decal to every Harrier skin in your install, place it in the CoreMods\aircraft\AV8BNA\Textures

as for the {"pilot_AV8B_helmet", DECAL ,"Pilot_AV8B_hgu68_decal",false};

That is for your custom description.lua, If you want to add the decal to all harriers just do the above step and ignore this one

The decal shown in the first post seems to be added to all the helmets automatically like this:



If you want to remove it on your livery, add this line:

Code:
{"pilot_AV8B_helmet", DECAL ,"empty",true};

Thanks Decoy, I hadn't noticed this post and I discovered the Decal dds in the textures folder and figured out how to do it. But thanks for the info I'll share with my dcs fans and skin builders. My X-Wing Themed Harrier repaint is taking on a whole new look tonight!

I see it also being applied to the mask though, let us know when the fix is done, please.

I've painted the camo on to my helmet to match my desert harrier skin and added a new pirate skull logo.

I'm assuming like liveries the decals can not be seen in Multiplayer unless installed on the other client machines as well? Or do the helmet decals work differently?
