Mauws' Custom Paint Jobs makes use of KSP's new Variant Switcher feature to add several colored textures to the game.

In MCPJ the textures are identified as Paint Jobs. A Paint Job may be either a texture of a single base color or a variant of it. The variants are composed by the base color of a Paint Job + an alternative secondary color and/or custom details.

This is my first time modding and my first time making textures. Despite the overall quality of the Paint Jobs be limited by my lack of texturing skills, I really hope they are good enough to provide you with as much fun as I designed them to do.

Currently MCPJ adds 12 Paint Jobs (6 unique colors with one variant for a few parts each) to almost 50 parts, most of those are Aerodynamic parts, such as wings and nose cones. The currently available Paint Jobs and the supported parts are listed below.

Q - Why MCPJ "Alpha Pack"?
A - The greater the amount of textures the greater is the mod size. Maybe one day it will reach an unreasonable size to be downloaded at once (or maybe you just want a few Paint Jobs without having to download GBs of textures), once this happens the next Paint Jobs will be packaged in a standalone derivate mod: MCPJ Bravo Pack. Then comes the Charlie Pack, and so on. (Read the next question for more info).

Q - When will the MCPJ "Bravo Pack" be released?
A - It may never happen, the community will decide. What size is too much for a single mod, 100mb? 500mb? 1gb? Please leave your feedback.
A2 - There's another scenario in which it may happen: if I decide to add Paint Jobs that doesn't follow the pattern of Main color + Variants (like an exclusive texture for a single part), those will probably be packaged in the Bravo Pack.

Q - Do you have any plans to add support for mod parts?
A - For now just the Stock parts.

Q - Can I suggest a color to be added to the pack?
A - Of course, see how in the Development topic above.

Anyone who has the Making History expansion could tell me if the mod is working fine with the DLC installed? I think there shouldn't be any problems, but I want to be sure ... Thanks in advance.

Sweet! This new feature could be an interesting re-take on the long-desired Kerb Paint feature :)

It looks like they could easily be added/re-colored versions of stock, etc.

Thanks! I just searched for your post and wasn't expecting to see my own gif, lol. Btw, the variant "A" of the Starman Purple paint job has the texture of the Elon Musk dancing on the FAT-455 Aeroplane Tail Fin.

This mod looks amazing! Any plans for a 'black' colour? Like in the U 2 or Sr 71 blackbird?

Is it still working?

 

I'm about to find out! :D

Not only is this a great set of colored parts for aircraft, it's a wonderful case study of how the whole part variant/theme stuff works. Kinda spectacular.

Yup! Seems to still work great in 1.6.1.

any chance of a ckan version? also is this like the paint tool in spore or does it only work on stock parts? because I would love for support for B9 aerospace and the procedural parts as well as prakasa aeroworks, and OPT because I have several ideal paintjobs I would love to use... basically can this be expanded to be compatible with any spaceplane parts mod? because I made a replica of the guitar ship from Interstella 5555 and it is just black and white and I want to give it it's signature blue and yellow paintjob...

It's just alternate textures for specific parts.

I'd check out Textures Unlimited for something more broad-sweeping. :D
