A PSD-format or XCF-format template for the CFA-44. Includes separate MREC files.
The image file has the following contents:
Decals Layers - Recreation of warning labels and other details on the aircraft
Unpainted Layers - Details from the original textures which are not painted, like the cockpit or landing gear
Note: The numbers refer to the original skin texture used to create the layer
UV Map - The boundaries of the aircraft model
Panels/Weathering - Details like panel lines, rust, grime, etc. that make the appearance more realistic
There are four MREC files to choose from, with the following differences:
MATTE - The metallic sheen, seen usually on stealth aircraft, is removed
COVENG - The engines are covered, giving them a less metal/shiny appearance
The MREC file named "fa44_0_MREC_CLEAN" will therefore give an appearance closest to the original skins.
Note: These MREC files have an alpha layer and will appear mostly invisible when opened in an editor.
Place your layers below the Panels/Weathering layer and other detail layers.
Use either the Uncovered Engines version of layers/MREC or the Covered Version. Don't use both.
If using GIMP, use the Bucket tool to change the color of included layers.
If you wish to use the unique panels of the Prototype skin, download the Playable Aircraft Masks from Project VANILLA as well.
These masks will enable you to apply these panels to your diffuse and MREC in part or in total.
