A folder of commonly used textures for my F-104G series skins, that can be shared by all liveries to save storage space!
Download and unzip this folder and place it into your F-104 Liveries folder (same location that you put new F-104 skins), ie:
C:\Users\<your user name here>\Saved Games\DCS\Mods\aircraft\VSN_F-104G\Liveries\xxx, where”xxx” means the sub-variant you wish to use the skins with. There are presently four different F-104 variants:
My skins will work with all sub-variants, just make sure to install the CustomTextures folder into EACH sub-variant folder you plan to use, so every skin will know where to look for the shared textures.
These shared textures are ones commonly used by most skins, normal maps, natural metal finish external tanks, pylons, etc.
New skins will now contain instructions in their description.lua to use the various textures in the Common Textures folder as needed so they won't have to be included in every new skin folder. This will save downloading time and storage space.
