Default Dash8-100 Repaint - Decal/Title Question

Author Message

Posted: Tue Jun 13, 2017 3:05 am 

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 "" 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.
