Thanks for this template.

I have finnally managed to work out how to get files in and out of adobe photoshop and into fsx format and have produced my first skin for my own enjoyment only.

Its the Helicopter I hired from East Midlands Helicopters at Costock for a pleasure flight on my Birthday this year.

Would anyone be interested in painting any of these birds for me? They are surplus OH58As that the Police Dept I work for flies. We also have some MD500s as well as a surplus MH6 we got from the Army.

I actually got to fly N701MP last Wednesday (Sept 30) when I Interviewed with the Aviation Unit and it was amazing.

After flying the default Bell with my X52 setup for so long I was taken back on how different the REAL bird flew. The biggest difference was how gentle on the controls you had to be with the REAL bird. It was a real eye opener and I give props to actual helicopter pilots because they make it look so easy.

I wish I would have upgraded to the DODO a long time ago. May have helped me hover better than I did.

Is there a tutorial anywhere that explains how to get diagonal lines (Graphics) to line up in these paintkits.  I've tried and am unable to get the lines to macth up from the fuselage, engine cowl and boom.

HELP please!

Getting th elines to line up is the hardest thing.

I use 'Panel finder' look in images on google

Its a coloured and numbered skining tool. but the angles on the dodo are quiet something to line up!

Just keep drawing and checking in fsx thats how I do it.

Aussie,
The Dept I work for is the Metro Nashville Police Dept in Nashville TN, USA.

Those are the only photos I have of the OH58s. I do have some of the MD500s floating around somewhere though.

I’m trying to install some dodo repaints (Dodosim_Military_Paints.zip). It’s the first time I try to install repaints and I don’t understand how to install these dodo paints. I saw two different tutorials on how to install repaints and it is clearly easy to do, but this dodo package does not fit the process that I have learned. I read the readme but that is not useful. It’s not clear what folders need to be placed in the bell206 folder, and replacing the cfg file (as the readme tells me to do) makes the aircraft disappear from my helicopter list. Editing the cfg file has no effect. What’s going on? How do I install this awesome looking repaint?

If you are referring to the military paints done by me, then the answer should be simple.



If it is your first time installing repaints for the Dodosim, then all you have to do is:

1.  Copy and paste the Effects and SimObjects folders into your FSX folder.  (ex, C:/MicrosoftFlightSimX)

2.  You are done.  Start FSX and fly.

I’m not getting it right yet. Let me describe exactly what I am doing.

1. copy paste “fx_vclight_dodo.fx” into
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Effects

2. copy paste
DodoSim_206_FSX_Floats
DodoSim_206_FSX_HighSkid
DodoSim_206_FSX_LowSkid
DodoSim_206_FSX_Utility
into
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Rotorcraft\Bell206B

What am I doing wrong?
