FW2 Template Files [U]

Posted by Atashi at 2015.05.03 10.31 in Customizations

The linked zip file below contains Gimp (xcf), Photoshop (psd) files of the new hull texture template for the new FW-2 boats.

The Gimp and Photoshop files contain all separate layers for the various areas you can include in the single texture:

  • Hull Base Colour
  • Lower Hull Colour (also used for cockpit trim)
  • Port & Starboard Text Areas
  • Bow / Logo Area
  • Outer & Inner Rudder Areas

You can include all of these details in a single texture, and retexture the whole boat at once using the boat’s menu system.

Just click the boat for the menu, select Colour, then select UUID from the colour menu. Paste the UUID of your new texture into the text-box and the boat applies the texture to all the relevant surfaces.

  • The templates use layers – each layer’s name is descriptive of what the layer represents.
  • The rudder areas have text on them to illustrate which direction is ‘up’ for the inside and outside surfaces.
  • I have added an (unused) layer which is a 32×32 grid of coloured checkered squares, divided into an 8×8 numbered grid, that can be used to figure out precise positioning. You’ll need to upload the grid inworld and apply it to the boat, but it will help illustrate where all the pixels go.

This is what the completed template texture looks like – it’s also available as an option on the boat’s colour menu so you don’t have to upload it yourself in order to see how the various areas are applied to the boat.
