Hey all, I'm returning to modding for a bit-I've finally found the time and desire-and needless to say I'm extremely rusty. I've reskinned in the past and done so successfully. But I tried to reskin a B-Wing as a test (added a troll face to the wing) but it doesn't appear; rather, the whole ship becomes one uniform color. I don't think I'm forgetting anything and I've used both PS with the DDS plugin and Paint.Net. Any help here?

To me, that sounds like your drawing on the layer that normally contains the transperancy (Even though the B-wing doesnt have any, these are the parts of the ship that change to match the faction color during a skirmish) I use GIMP for skinning, so I can't help you with switching to the correct layer. However, if you consult Google for tutorials, I'm sure you will find something. Hope this helps.

You're precisely right; I didn't even bother making a new layer. Guess I just didn't see the point in it (the alpha layer was left hidden anyway). Thanks for the help.
