Fw190-a5 4096x4096 (4k) Template & 4k bumpaps released.

Recommended Posts

I'm very proud to present my latest template pack.

 

Fw190-a5 template, skinpack and 4k bumpmap are ready for download.  This template is a conversion from my a3 template with appropriate details changes to match the new 190-a5 layout.  As there is no existing 2k 190-a5 template available I used the 190-a5 bumpaps to ensure lines and rivets lined up to the default a5.

  • Main template file
  • Alpha PSD template is also included in the download.
  • 4k bumpmap also included.
  • Skinpack

Skin-pack contains.

6x generic skins

2x historic skins (Horst Hannig, Fw190-a4 and Walter Nowotny Fw190-a5).

 

 

Edit: template updated to v3 on 27 Jan 2018, please download again.  Fixes include:

  • Fixed missing exhaust stack texture
  • New improved Weathering layers added
  • More accurate base camo colours
  • New alpha PSD file included
  • New skinpack
  • New metal chiping layers

Thanks for the excellent 4K templates ICDP, I can't imagine how many hours you've spent perfecting every pixel. Quality.

 

I had a play around with the template in Gimp and ended up with something I'm happy with, I make 2 of everything, one for  me and one for my Rottenflieger.

The community of virtual pilots SG2 sincerely expresses gratitude to Martin (ICDP), made full sets of skins in two versions for the FW 190А-5 / A3 for the whole our squad. Thank you for such a great job!

Hi Martin,

 

 

first of all thank you for the new skinpacks. Great looking skins

 

If you dont mind i think i have found some minor flaws.

 

1, One of the aileron "bumps" on Nowotny´s skin should have another color. Cant remember if left or right.

 

2, On the left wing (middle section) of the ac there is a "cut".

 

Cheers

Hi Yankee one, thank you for the feedback.

 

I assume the aileron bump is referring to the yellow part.  I will look at this and fix it but the 3D model has only one texture spot for these, so it's always one colour for both.

 

The cut on the left wing is an error in the 3D model rather than the texture.

Hello ICDP, I do not know how to handle the alpha layer that you provide us.

If I want it to be more matte it will lower the brightness.

The alpha PSD file must be saved as ...?

When you say copy and paste in the main template, is it in the channels tab ....?

I would appreciate an explanation for clumsys.

Thank you for your great work

:salute:

I see what you mean now, I have fixed this and uploaded the new files.  Still old filenames as this is only a minor change.

 

Download the template and the skinpack again as this affected 4x skins.

Hi Julian.  For BOX skins the darker the alpha layer the more matte it becomes.  Though if you go too dark the skin disappears and all you see are the 3D models.

 

I prefer to work with BMPs during this process as there is no loss of quality between saves as you would get working direct with DDS files.

 

  1. Create the main texture and save as a 32 bit BMP file.
  2. Use the alpha template to create your desired alpha channel, save it as a BMP file.
  3. Open the saved alpha BMP file, select all and copy.
  4. Open main texture bmp
  5. Go to the channels tab and paste your copied alpha BMP to channel1
  6. Save the file again.

Now open the file in photshop (or Gimp) and save as a DDS file.  You will need to get the Nvidia dds photoshop pluggins (do a google search).

 

Settings are as below, though you can disable the generate mipmaps option if you prefer.

 

You can paste a generic alpha layer into the PSD file alpha channel directly.  This way all textures created in the template will have a working alpha as per your preferences.  My template already includes a mostly matte with some refelction at extremely shallow angles.

H szelljr.  That method works for some small areas but when working on making the entire skin more matte it would be quite cumbersome trying to avoid some parts becoming transparent.  Hence why I included the alpha PSD, so only the base layer needs to be adjusted.

Years back I had the layered template for several BF-109s..E3,E4 & F4 as memory serves. but alas, those templates have been lost  I find skins everywhere, but I'm trying to find 'Templates' that offer the various layers such as those found by your works and labor.

Would you mind pointing me to where I can retreive those templates again.   Thank you most kindly for you paramount efforts and releases.

Respectfully- House
