4K Bf 109 F-4 Template Download and 4K Skins


Recommended Posts

Hello there fellow pilots,

 

After about a month of work, I finished my Normal Map for my 4K Bf 109F-4 Template and skins.

I have completely rebuild the normal map. Here is a list of everything I have rebuild from the ground up:

  • Completely new panel line effects 
  • Various different types of overlapping panel effects
  • Bend metal plate effects
  • Slightly misaligned panels
  • Access hatches effects
  • Metal warping caused by heat, twisting and compression (heavier around the engine, wing roots, gear covers and more)
  • Rivet effects (different intensities in certain areas)
  • Large rivet effects
  • Small screw effects
  • Large screw effects
  • Fabric effects on ailerons, elevator and rudder
  • Frame effects under the fabric on the ailerons, elevator and rudder.
  • Radiators
  • Wheel hubs and wheels
  • Several other small effects
These effects are combined to recreate all the different effects that make up the construction of the Bf 109F-4.

Many of these effects are completely new and not present in the original normal map. 

 

Warning: This 4K Normal Map differs greatly from the original normal map and skins. This means that this normal map will only work with skins which are made with my 4K Bf 109F-4 Template! 

Therefore, I advise you only use skins made with my 4K Bf 109F-4 Template when you install this normal map.

 

Here is the download link to my 4K Bf 109F-4 Normal Map.

Read the READ FIRST file for installation instructions!

 

I will add a link to this normal map download to all my 4K skins from now on. 

 

Special message to skinners: With these new effects it is no longer needed to have the fabric effects on the skin itself. (It looks quite ugly, in my opinion) I, therefore, advise all skinners that have my 4k Bf109F-4 Template to remove the folder called "Fabric Effects" which can be found in "4K Advanced Detail\4K Structural effects". I have already removed it in the template download.

 

You can find more images showing the effects of the normal map here. (I have also included some images with the old normal map)

It would be great to see it reworked as Bf-109G2 skin... at least in 2k !

Don't know how much additional work it takes...

I had originally planned on making the Bf 109G-2 (and later the G-4) as well. However, the time required to make these (or even update the F versions) is significant. And since I did not want to stick with the 109 forever, I decided to do some other projects instead (one of which is the Fw 190A-5 which is also horribly delayed). Of course, with a much busier schedule outside of IL-2 (study and some other stuff), I simply don't have the time to do everything I want.

I would still like to make them but right now, I simply don't know if I have the time and whether it is worth it.

!!! Major Bf 109F-4 Template and Skin Update !!!

Hello there fellow pilots,

 

I have revisited the Bf 109F templates and skins. This time armed with the knowledge I gained during the IL-2 project.

 

You can read the changes in my Skin Museum.

 

!! Note: These structural changes mean that it does not match the old template anymore. !!

I advise that all skins made with my templates are updated with this new template.

@BlackHellHound1

 

Thank you very much for your fantastic work and the more than satiesfying Update :) 

I'm in work of some Bf-109 paint schemes and was preparing a new rivet layer of some other enhancements to you old one and the public one, but this now is pretty useless, because your template is absolutely TOP NOTCH and I'm glad & happy to use both ones now for my work!

 

Your improvements and additions based on the results regarding changes in Normal Map and Alpha Layer are really a big step to the visual effects in game!!!

 

Thank you very much for your support and work for the game and ist community!

 

I forgot to mention that I try to rework my Normal Maps for the Fw-190 models regarding your work, I hope with success ;)

Hello there fellow pilots,

 

I have updated the template file from .PSB to .PSD

I have made no changes to the template itself. 

It should now be much easier for Gimp users to open the files. 

As usual, You can download the templates from the old link.

Edit: As pointed out by Psyrion, the effects of the "Exhaust Grime" and "Belly Oil Leaks" don't show in Gimp. I added compressed layers of these effects with correct colours in the templates as well for Gimp users.

Blackhell Hound - these skin templates are amazing and wonderful to work with. Thanks so much.

 

Do you have any plans to do G2/G4/G6? (or are you leaving them to Boomerang?)
