Manwith Noname Posted April 22, 2018 Share Posted April 22, 2018 (edited) What is this? This is a continuation / adaptation / expansion of previous work I undertook for the mod KerbPaint many moons ago. It now uses shaders made available via Textures Unlimited to bring user control over the colour of many stock parts. Can we see it? The following pics show the colour mapping for stock parts. Spoiler Here's something a bit more...tasteful......maybe. Spoiler Known issues: Fairings...it's always the fairings. Installation and Dependencies: Ensure both Textures Unlimited (specific version currently supplied in download) and Module Manager are installed. Download the Stock Recolour pack below and place it appropriately within your game directory. Extra packs can then be installed if you have the mods they cover. Correct installation will result in all packs being placed within a dedicated Textures Unlimited Recolour Depot folder so your GameData isn't taken over by them. NOTE: The config files specify paths to textures. If you alter the path of a pack or it's parent mod, the universe will collapse. Important: In order for these packs to display as intended, it is important that the Reflection Refresh Mode in the games graphics options is set to anything other than OFF. Choose a refresh rate that suits you and your hardware but reflections need to be enabled for correct rendering. It is also currently critical for the included version of Textures Unlimited to be used over the public release. Downloads Stock Recolour This is the core pack. It applies the TU texture switch module and enables switching between default stock shaders and the PBR recolour shader of TU for stock parts. MK2 Expansion This pack applies the stock colour maps to parts in the MK2 Expansion mod by SuicidalInsanity. The Stock Recolour pack above is required. MK2 Expansion mod thread here. MK3 Expansion This pack applies the stock colour maps to parts in the MK3 Expansion mod by SuicidalInsanity. The Stock Recolour pack above is required. MK3 Expansion mod thread here. MKIV Spaceplane Systems Adds TU Texture switch and recolour functionality to the MKIV Spaceplane Systems mod by Nertea. Currently requires the core Stock Recolour pack, this may change. The MKIV Spaceplane Systems mod can be found here. Special note: Texture files remain under All Rights Reserved license. OPT Spaceplane This pack applies the TU texture Switch module to OPT Spaceplane parts to enable switching between the stock and recolour shaders. Currently requires the core Stock Recolour pack, this may change. OPT Spaceplane mod thread here. Airplane Plus Adds TU texture switch module to Airplane Plus parts and allows switching between stock and recolour shaders. Requires the core Stock Recolour pack above. Airplane Plus mod thread can be found here. Procedural Wings "Original" Paint wings, procedurally with this pack. Currently requires the core Stock Recolour pack, this may change. "Original" pWings mod thread found here. B9 Paint wings, procedurally with this pack. Currently requires the core Stock Recolour pack, this may change. B9 pWings mod thread found here. Licensing Unless otherwise stated. DLC Making History and Breaking Ground Thanks to the hard work and dedication of @OnlyLightMatters you can supplement your stock recolour experience with packs for the parts in the Two DLCs available on their GitHub page. Spoiler Credits: @Texel If they had not created KerbPaint, I would never have made masks for Porkjets MK2 parts (yes, before they were stock). @Shadowmage for Textures Unlimited (and other great stuff too) without which this wouldn't exist. @Electrocutor for endless tinkering and posting in the forum which helped me understand TU better. @SuicidalInsanity for stock themed part expansions. @K.Yeon for OPT. @Nertea F.A.B @blackheart612 for aviation goodness. @OnlyLightMatters for DLC coverage. @SQUAD I guess...dunno why...let me think about that. Other peeps no doubt. Old Releases: Spoiler NOTE: These may contain errors that will likely not be fixed.
