• 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.

Starting point for Paintkit

I use Lithunwrap, it can create a wire mesh bitmap of the mapped parts, it not only helps when creating your base textures, it also shows if the parts have been mapped correctly, here's an example showing my Lear 35 wing & horizontal stablizer.

The great thing about LithUnwrap is the bitmap produced of your mapping is pixel-perfect. There’s no nagging doubts over whether you scaled or positioned things just right. I used it for all the Gmax templates I ever made. :teacher:
I think I have the texturing worked out now. I also completely remodeled the aircraft and I like it much better. I was way more accurate the 2nd go around. I also got the wing root added though I'm not totally satisfied with it. I'm now going to move on to animations. Thank you for your help. Here is what I have now. It's textured in white at the moment.
