I'm pleased to announce that update 1.02 for the P-40E has been launched!
A big part of this update focused on aiding residents in customizing the paint on the aircraft.
So, I have developed a Custom Paint Assistant Tool (CPAT) that repaints the plane by simply applying a texture to one of the CPAT's panels and clicking it. This also works for local hard drive textures as well!
Just rez your current copy of the aircraft to receive the update. Have fun!
Custom Paint Assistant Tool for the P-40E
What is CPAT?
The CPAT (Custom Paint Assistant Tool) system allows the P-40 to be customized without the need of a paint pot.
Simply rez out a copy of the CPAT and apply a texture to the corresponding panels. (Body, Wings, then Hubs. Top row for textures, Bottom for Specular).
Once a texture has been applied to the panel, click it and the texture will be applied to that part of the aircraft.
This will also work for local/temp textures for those who use Firestorm or Singularity viewers (work in progress textures should automatically update once applied to the aircraft within the same log in session).
Please note: The CPAT is full perms, however if the permission change on the object, the system will still work. CPAT will not record your textures into the Paint Memory slots.
- Added CPAT (Custom Paint Assistant Tool) for extra texture support. You can also use local textures on your aircraft. The aircraft will not remember those textures in the Added Paints menu.
- Fixed a physics bug for inverted flight which had little to no deflection towards gravity. Flap physics have also been refined a little.
- Personal and Merchant paint pot systems have been updated. You will need to use the newer Paint pot system if you want the plane to remember your Added Paints.
