Jet Strike: Alternative skins/textures?

Postby lassebauer on 03/1/2015, 2:27 pm

I´d like a plain white airplane - or at least one without any huge stickers.
Any clue how to either get other skins that fit - or remove e.g. the big blue/yellow tail decor on the 747?

and yes, I have tried in PS, but it´s virtually impossible to figure out what goes where, since the texture is warped to fit the 3D model.
I love goooooold. The look of it, the daste of it, the schmell of it, the dexture.
I love gold so much that I even lost my genitalia in an unfortunate schmelting accident. Hence the name....

In Andrew's Jetstrike tutorials he shows you how to add your own decals to the planes. This same process will allow you to remove them.

Yes, thanks. I get that :)

My problem is removing e.g. the tail decoration on the white 747 - and I don´t see how that´s possible since it´s warped?
The skin/material is bent so it fits the 3D model - which makes it impossible to see what or where you are retouching.
And I don´t know how to remove that section without messing up the rest of the texture under/around the decal?

Not sure what warping you are talking about. Attached is the map for the white 747 tail. If I wanted the tail green with 467 on it, I would take a copy of this file, change it in photoshop, safe it, and use it as the texture map rather than the original.

Perhaps I am missing something, can you show a picture of what you are talking about?

As you can see, it says "777" quite clearly on the tail...so I´m assuming it´s not a 747... ;)

I need the attached texture with no color on the tail.
It´s the only model of the 747 (Jumbo Jet), that is not colored on the body.
I need a totally white airplane.
No idea how to completely remove the colors so it doesn't show.
Seems to me it would be easier to get the original texture without decals - if VCP on anyone has that?

Thanks :)

This plane, this texture - but with NO decals on the tail

I suck at photoshop and this took me less than a minute so take your time and edit the image.

And yours, very quickly done but less than 30 seconds.

Thanks a lot :)
The thing is - it needs to be white WITH the structure (rivets etc) underneath.
Oh, well - if it doesn´t exist already, I´ll have to spend some time creating it.
Thanks again for your effort :)
