Hi everybody

 

i just bought the fantastic DC-8 package....after a first test flight/circuit around an airfield, i must say i am pretty impressed by the quality of the plane...

 

As i was planning on doing some repaints, i wanted to do by painting the full fuselage first, as i was used from other aircrafts. but the paintkit in the dc-8 is different. does anybody knows a good tutorial on how to repaint this one, also, is there any possibility to close the windows in the visual model, as i wanted to paint a cargo version...

 

many thanks

 

Marc

The windows use a transparent glass material so they cannot be painted over.  So for now, cargo versions are not really possible.  However, once the 32 bit version is done, I will be making a cargo version that will be a free update.  It will have the windows plugged and a large cargo door cut into the fuselage. 

 

Let me know if you have any other questions about the paint kit.  The basic idea is to create a new layer for your new livery at the same level in the layer hierarchy as the other liveries.

A cargo version is planned, but first we need to fix bugs and get the 32 bit version out.

I use the 32 bit version. Where I can find the paintkit?

Do repaints for the P3D version work for the FSX version and vice-versa?

They will work for both versions.  The only difference is that there the texture.cfg files inside each livery folder are different between P3D v.4 and FSX.
