-.- okay… let me explain… …let me show you my painting skills… i know it looks like someone from the first grade painted the UVW but really I worked first time with Gimp! (got several problems) After i succesfully painted simple models like a simple tank i modeled, i wanted to start on a “real” model. So this is the result in UpSpring after messing around with 3DS MaX and Gimp… lol i know its not very good but for me a beginning! I really beginn to like it painting own things on planes… so the Junkers 188 got the Night/winter camo… I KNOW actually we dont have winter maps but it was the easiest camo i found on google! lol I searched long time on google… yehh. At least… believe me you dont want to see my UVW map… lol
yeah yuri… i know i made your model ugly now… xD sorry lol
i still work on it! Maybe someone can give me tips? i use Gimp and 3DS MaX!
Okay i overworked the skin alittle bit more… not Perfect but better… i will add Dirt and some other details…
UPDATE! So after i got some time during the week (well today…) i worked again on the Texture which is in version 3 now. (so i had 3 attempts on it)
I added “dirt” which normaly would be there if there would be a exhaust…of the engines lol. And i added some detals like numbers (plane number) and i tried to paint a little detail with hand on the bottom of the plane… well it doesnt look that bad =)
By the way the skin of the Ju 188 was called “Lufttiger Ju 188” which means something like “Airtiger Ju188”.
PS: Should it have the Swastika? No or?
As a scale model builder I’m all for keeping things as historical correct as possible, so adding the swastika would be fine with me.
By the way, I think you did the camouflage good, but I miss the panel lines of the plane.
well i agree with you but its not possible i live in Germany and its not allowed to use it here
Flaps… panels etc… are in work.
Hmm, then would it be an option to have everything without swastikas as default, but give a separate program to enable them, like IL-2 Sturmovik did?
Not without breaking multiplayer sync.
Or doing it as a widget somehow? Probably a lot of work though.
Hammer and Sicle might get banned as well, considering the recent Europarliament decisions, etc. (this August they basically said Communism == Nazism).
Not surprising given the current economic climate
“Black Sun” same… i will not add anything like that. Thr IronCross would be a option the “Balkenkreuz” the corss you often see on German tanks and planes… should be enough. Oh and “RUNEN” are also not … “good” if you write the S… (Runen is a old Germanic “language”)
Okay here is the Final version:
I added a lot more details and for a newbie in texturing its actually quite good in my mind. Thanks to Yuri for helping me with the UVW.
(added to the File dumb)
I like it. It looks good, especially for a first time texture-task.
and for someone who hates painting lol… i train on uwv mapping …actually…
It is far too cartoony; colour saturation is too high, everything is solid-colour, and there’s no “weathering” or realistic shading.
I wrote this tutorial awhile ago:
The first part deals with using Ultimate Unwrap, however the second half is a short but sweet tutorial on adding more realistic shading, weathering and etc. While it is old and my techniques have improved it would still be helpful.
Just as a short example, I start with this:
And turn it into this:
pretty much detailing every step.
Check it out, I hope it is still helpful.
thx dude the first helpful tip i will try out the programm you used in the tutorial because 3dsmax is to strange… lol
