Decals question

Recommended Posts

e-Sim, thy name is not consistency.

You are right, and I have no excuse for it - at least none that belongs to the public.

Try this.

It is actually the "t72-decals.dds" from the stock game's desert folder. From what I can tell, it's a transparent file of a few pixels' dimension. When you use it in place of a decal file, the decal doesn't show in-game. It also doesn't leave a black spot in its place.

I've given it a dummy name of "blank". You'll need to make copies and rename them to whatever decal file(s) you don't want to see in the game. [it needs to remain a .dds file] Drop it in the appropriate MODS folder (like you would any custom skin). Viola. No markings.

The only tricky part is knowing what to name it. The game's decal-naming convention is as messed up as the skin-naming is. e-Sim, thy name is not consistency. A fellow has to play sherlock frickin holmes to determine which decal files go with which vehicle. In some cases there are more than one per vehicle, and they're not obvious. What do you think "tacnum" belongs to, for example. Hmm?

Anyway. This works, colossus, if what you want to do is eliminate the in-game markings. Good luck.

That is ace. Thanks for your trouble!

Yes, you hit the nail on the head there. We will try to improve on that in the future.
