Default Dash8-100 Repaint - Decal/Title Question

Hi,
I am repainting the FSX default Dash8-100. I notice the fuselage repaint is one sided ie the left side of the aircraft, so there is a separate DDS file called "Decal_DH_dash8_100.dds" which puts the airline name onto the fuselage and flips it to face the right way on the other side of the fuselage (right hand side).
Question is how do I create a 'second' .dds file to put the registration on one side and it flips it to the other side of the fuselage? What would I call the file and how do I get it to locate in the correct position on the aircraft?
Too difficult? I can't figure it out.
Thanks guys Smile

That's an interesting question. I'm not very knowledgeable with it comes to repainting but I would have thought that there would be different texture files for each side of the aircraft. Is this not the case?

Thanks heaps mate, I really appreciate your help Smile



No, there is only a one sided texture file for one side of the aircraft, and it then flips a mirror of it to the other side of the aircraft, meaning any text is around the wrong way on that side of the aircraft.

Sorry I already posted but I am not sure anyone would understand what the question was.

I have hunted and these two are missing (texture 22-Piedmont) and I am not a repainter. If someone could tell me what to do.

Would be grateful,

Have a great day!!!

How do you post on this website?

I am missing the DECAL_NNUMBER.BMP and the RIGHTTAIL_D.BMP

I am not a painter. I am trying to have the Piedmont (texture 22) visible and its missing in
Model Converter X....Plane is of no use to me without it.

I worked for Piedmont in the early 70's.

Have a great day!!!!
