sorry about that i had it in the wrong subforum (i'm new sorta because i got this account um......... lets see Thursday) and way i do need help skinning becuase i wanted to skin the vehicles my way but it keeps saying after i make the skin and try to inject it says "Needs to in DXT2 or DXT3 form" its ssoo annoying. I do save them as .DDS and i click use existing bitmaps. Also when i try to change the air that comes out of the Pelican to light blue and save it it like thinks its not there and completely messes up:mad:

use DXTBmp. Google it, your bound to find it. Maybe the program your using is bad? Or maybe your saving it wrong. I not an expert (seriously, don't smack me if I'm wrong), but I think a .DDS is different from DXTs.

LOL, seems Spyke was right. Anyways, SO THAT IS WHERE THE COOL STUFF IS. IT IS IN DECAL. Tight. Anyways, I just figured that out, Yes, i noe, much n00bage, but hey, I'm a n00b at modding, so I can't really help you. I'll check it out over the weekend when I have time and try and get an answer.

What was the point in posting that? It makes you look about 2 and is generally unhelpful. Seriously. Anyway. To avoid being a hypocrite, What is it that is wrong with the decals? what happens when to cause the error. Do they just not show, or is there an error when you try to apply them?
