I have been thinking of doing a repaint for my FBO. Is there any good tutorials for doing repaints out there? I have found a couple but they really don't tell you step by step and what all is needed to do it.

I've done a few repaints in my day...

First, you need a good paint program. You can get Serif PhotoPlus 6.0 for free. I use that and Paint.NET (also freeware).

Then, you need to be able to save them in the DXT3 format that FS likes. You do this using a program called DXTBmp by a gentleman named Martin Wright.

That's about all you really need. Learning is mostly trial-and-error, and the more you trial, the less you error :wink:.

I'd be happy to give you some pointers if you want.

Dave
