• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

P3D v4 PMDG 737 Repaint

Hi all,
I'm trying to make a livery for the PMDG 737 from scratch. However, I've looked at several YouTube videos, and all of them "assume" that the user has designed a livery already. I haven't done this, as I want to make a fictional livery. Is there any type of manual for how to do this from scratch? Before anyone says, "Google is your friend," I tried that, and it directed me here! Any help you can provide is appreciated.

1. Download a livery that is similar to yours.
2. For a given texture, load that livery's texture into your paint program.
3. Create a new layer on top of that livery. You will paint your texture on this layer.
4. Use the old livery as a guide as you are painting your livery. You can make either layer partially transparent (and/or flip the order of the layers) to see both at the same time.
5. When done, delete the layer containing the original livery.

Hope this helps,
Hi Tom,
Sorry for the delayed reply. So IIUC, I should go to the PMDG Operations program and find a similar livery to what I'm trying to make. After that, I just need to copy the texture into the paint program I'm using, and make the desired changes. Am I on the right track here? Will I have to use PMDG's Paint Kit at all for this process?

Sorry, I don't own PMDG stuff. You'll have to get more info from someone who has repainted them.
