GE B36-7 Repaint: Handing Down

Unread postby ZekTheKid » Sat Jan 06, 2018 12:22 am

I've been working on a series of B36-7 repaints lately. However, it's slowed to a halt because of mapping. I'm having trouble editing little bits to get the project rolling again. I think I've gotten the part painted, only to see it's something completely different in-game.

Which leads me to the conclusion. I'm looking for someone to give me a hand at these top secret !!det!! repaints.
*!!thnx!!*

It would be helpful if you would tell all of us what model from whom you are referring to here?

Correct. They come in NS livery and can be bought through steam.

Have you isolated which page your missing parts are on? I don't want to talk down to you since I know you've done repainting but let's walk through this one step at a time to find the parts. There nothing more maddening than the can't find it problem. Been there done that.

No. I looked at the under-body texture (for the handrails) but they were still black. I've went through all of the textures and I'm still having trouble pinning them & a lot of other parts down into a texture.

Start putting a .xx after one TgPcDx file at a time(don't forget you have both a nm and a nmc version for a lot of them) and restart the game each time until you find what page they are on when they show missing. Then you go to step 2.
