Without being in the game itself?

Has anyone either taken the skin plane engine out of the game. The thing that lets you see your work?

I'd love to sit here, at work, with sod all else to do on snowy days making skins with painshop Pro...

but the game itself is NOT getting installed here at work. The machines not good enough and besides.....

well....you know

Try this:

And note that you'll probably want to close IE after you have been to that site, else you will be stuck with the fancy transition between pages :|

hmm....got hopefull there. Thats MAT manager....the textfile that tells the game where to put the logos and numbers on the planes.

But I want to se (if its possible...probably not) WHAT THEPLANE LOOKS LIKE IN-GAME without installing the game itself.

A 3d modelling package that "wraps" the skin around the plane shape.

I guess I'm dreaming

Those guys use 3D Studio Max to both model the planes and then get the models into a form to be able to skin AFAICS.

And 3D Studio Max = ££££D $tudio Max - very expensive piece of software.

I could always look closer to home than that :P

If you do get 3DS Max, it'd be best to have a machine dedicated to the task.. it engulfed my OS (upon install it recompiles the windows kernel...) and only option was to format, nothing except 3DS max would run. Screwed everything, even the default and classic Windows XP Themes. :|
