** 40th Phoenix ** skin for the Huey
« on: August 08, 2020, 01:43:36 PM »
Huey "Phoenix" skin for the 40th - TACTICAL DESERT variant
 by Cowboy & Rowdy

EARLY ACCESS (Beta version). This skin is a HD resolution upgrade (UH-1H uses old ED models and lighting) with custom bump maps, textures and lighting (Roughmet upgrade), as such I have a few details still to fix. However, skin is available for any 40th member who wants to try it. Please feedback problems or suggestions by Discord PM

to install, unzip the following file into your user files uh-1h liveries folder, ex:
C:\Users\[YOURNAME]\Saved Games\DCS.openbeta\Liveries\uh-1h

DOWNLOAD:
This version deprecated, see below

Release version 1.0 now available.

INSTALL:
to install, unzip the following file into your user files uh-1h liveries folder, ex:
C:\Users\[YOURNAME]\Saved Games\DCS.openbeta\Liveries\uh-1h

UPDATING FROM v0.8:
I suggest first deleting the older skin folder ('40th Phoenix -TacDesert')and installing clean. Although not necessary, the older version had superfluous files that are no longer needed.

DOWNLOAD:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1PMwnJ22oM66l8__xsARep7-jfHUicCq9/view?usp=sharing

Notes (for skinner geeks):
This skin updates the UH-1H skin files to a high resolution version and includes new textures, bump map and specular lighting. Although I was attempting to do a full conversion to modern roughmet, this required changes to core DCS files (which would need to be changed after every update - and also would not pass integrity checks). Therefore, I compromised by dropping the roughmet upgrade and just updated to a custom specular map which does not impact the DCS core files.


change log:
- fixed specular ghosting (new custom specular maps)
- removed roughmet changes
