• 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.

FSX Texture Creation - Skid Marks

Hello All,
I've reached a point in a project were by I now need to start to model and create more detailed textures for my runway, how do i go about developing skids marks for runways in Adobe Photoshop, exactly like other developers do, i've tried with different brush effects but no luck, can't find any tutorials, so any advice is appreciated.

Regards.
 
I am going through this process also, download some brushes for adobe off the internet they really help. The best way i found was to create a new document fill the background with black and paint the tire marks over it using different shades of gray. Combining two brushes together using the dual brush option really helps. Save only the background black image as the main image then save the whole image with all the tire marks as the alpha.

Is the dual brush option available on Aodbe Photoshop 7, or are you refering to something else?

Mant thanks, I'll give thay a go!
