Newbie to skinning. Please help


Recommended Posts

I'll post my understanding of the process and you may modify/add.


1- download the template (layered PSD) from here.

2- open in DXT BMP to convert to 24 bitmap

3- open in photoshop or any other program

4- make the skin

5- save skin in PSD and BMP from photoshop (I dont have photoshop, any other program available to skin?)

6- get the BMP new skin into DXTBMP

7- convert the new BMP to DDS.

8- put where in WORLD?

9- edit description.LUA with skin name1,2,3,4.


Am I correct?



Fat T is above, thin T is below. Long T is faster, Short T is slower. Open triangle is AWACS, closed triangle is your own sensors. Double dash is friendly, Single dash is enemy. Circle is friendly. Strobe is jammer. Strobe to dash is under 35 km. HDD is 7 times range key. Radar to 160 km, IRST to 10 km. Stay low, but never slow.

Do a search on dcs world skinning and you find lots of info.

take the second link it's a pdf file which i used to learn this stuff.

I don't have photoshop myself and use Gimp, that works well.


skill part two and just use it in the psd for photoshop format.

Gimp uses a different extension.


Good luck.

You can call them and get an older version for cheaper. Like X5
