Does anybody know how to make repaints textures for FSX aircraft? If anyone has made some what ones have you made?

THe good thing is that each of the default FS-X aircraft comes in a "white" scheme, ready for repainting. HAving said that, the important thing is to get the dds textures converted to a useable bitmap format that your paint program can recognize and use. Most repainters will have a good paint program that uses layers (Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop, pixia, the Gimp!), and teh texture converter dxtbmp from MArtin Wright (do a search on any of the major flightsim sites. One thing about the dds format - the image is flipped vertically, so whatever repaint you do, make sure it gets flipped before you save and convert back to dds.
