The unofficial JF-17 paintkit


Recommended Posts

 Hi folks, I hope you are all doing well and are safe.

Me and my friend Kerbo, have started work on a JF-17 paintkit.

We plan to release it for christmas as a small present to the community.

And who knows, Deka might even give us their blessings.

This was originally posted to the JF-17 livery section in the forum but we figured its better off here.

Here is the paintkit: 

 

we've updated the Template, V 2.0 is out and includes among other stuff:

- improved weathering

- AO

- improved stencils

-included tanks into the sample skin

-custom and updated roughmets to go along with the weathering

- and a (still very WIP) Roughmet template

 

another change we made is we merged both wings into a single file, Wing R should be exported as Main 06 and Wing L should be exported as Main 07 we recommend using the sample skin folder as the base of your livery and just overwriting the files as needed to fix a couple of bugs encountered If you have any issues with the template or want help with it feel free to ping me!

 

Expect another (maybe even bigger!) update in the coming weeks as community contributions become added to the template,

Is there any guidance on how to translate between the wings?  Right wing comes up fine but I can only get left to be some weird mirror so all the text is backwards.  Flipping and rotating various ways just misaligns the template...

This is what I get with the 'correct' flip - the orientation is wrong and doesn't read correctly into the model
