• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

Prepar3d v5 aircraft livery textures not loading

Good Day,

I just finished my first repaint in P3D, of the Carenado Archer. When I go to fly it in the sim, all of the areas of the aircraft which I painted on become untextured. I have attached pictures of what happens when I fly and of all the texture files I painted on to.

Thanks,

Xavier

What format did you save the textures in, and what tool did you use to do that? Some typical formats are not loaded by P3D.

Paint.net won't work, but DXTBmp should work if you save it in a DXT format (not 24 bit).

Sorry (I'm very new at this), do you mean save it as a .BMP through the DXTbmp program, or should I save it as a different file type in DXTbmp?

You use Save As/Extended Bitmap and then choose the DXT type you desire from the resulting drop down box.
