UH-1H Colombian Air Force Skin Pack

This is a collection of two skins representing aircraft 4005 and 4513 of the Fuerza Aérea Colombiana.

Copy the folders to your Liveries\uh-1h folder (either in DCS World\Bazar or Saved Games\DCS).

The release of DCS World 1.2.4 added the ability to add texture paths using the file "autoexec.cfg" in your Saved Games\DCS\Config folder.  This will allow you to save hard drive space as long as the skin filenames are unique.  My skins support this, so any DDS file with the same name will be identical.

In order to enable this feature, add the following line to autoexec.cfg (be sure to create the file if it doesn't exist):

table.ins ert(options.graphics.VFSTexturePaths, "C:/Users/<username>/Saved Games/DCS/Textures")

You can use any path (even a different drive), but you must use forward slashes for your path.  Backslashes won't work here.

Then, you can move all of the DDS files from each of the skin folders to this new folder you've added to your path.  Allowing overwrites is not a problem, as I use unique names for each file.  Finally, be sure to go in to each description.lua file and change all "false" entries to "true."

Change Log:
1.0    Initial Release for DCS World 1.2.7
1.01 Corrected Fuerza Aérea Colombiana spelling
1.1    Added "slick" specific textures

Special thanks to upuaut for assistance with the more "exotic" material names, as well as the assistance with custom rotor colors.

You are free to use any of the textures (e.g. custom flightsuits) in other skins or projects as long as proper credit is provided in the readme file.
