Contains a .psd file to create custom USN squadron helmet designs on a realistic white reflective tape JHMCS helmet as well as an editted F18 pilot texture with a black t-shirt and brown boots

Does it make you physically ill to think about how ED modeled a US Army pilot with an Air Force helmet as the default Hornet pilot skin?  Do you wish you could trap on the Stennis wearing the uniform of a TRUE US Naval Aviator?  Then you've come to the right place!

Over the past week I editted the original F18 helmet file to resemble a US Navy JHMCS with white reflective tape and a velcro patch on the top.  I have attached the original .psd file that contains all the textures you need to make your own squadron designs, as well as the proper editted normal and material maps with a BONUS VFA-103 design (see pictures).

I also editted the F18 pilot texture to have a black t-shirt and brown boots (Naval Aviation standard issue) because what is DCS World without immersion?  Hopefully some of you skinners out there can make use of these textures for future squadron liveries.
Happy flying!  

How to install:
1. Save diffuse textures as pilot_f18_helmet.dds
2. Save material textures as pilot_f18_helmet_roughmet.dds
3. Save normal map textures as pilot_f18_helmet_nm.dds
4. Take these three textures along with the pilot texture and either
    a. Replace the original Hornet textures located in C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World\CoreMods\aircraft\FA-18C\Textures
        or
    b. Put these textures in a folder with a livery and add these lines to your description.lua
