Thread: Any Way to Fix See-Through Prop & Cockpit Textures?

  1. #1

    Question Any Way to Fix See-Through Prop & Cockpit Textures?

    Is it possible to fix these see-through textures on this RANS S-7C Courier (by Steve Grant)? The aircraft was originally for FS9 but I've been trying to get it to work properly in FSX, since there isn't really any other RANS aircraft for FSX other than the S-12XL. I'm trying to "fix" or update this plane for myself in FSX and while I was able to replace the gauges with FSX ones, I can't figure out how to fix the prop & cockpit see-through textures. I tried the prop textures from the default J-3 Cub, and I've switched the type of file on the default S-7 prop between DDS and BMP, DTX 1, 3, and 5, and I haven't been able to fix it. I followed David Marshall's FSX prop textures fix tutorial, I created a new alpha (assuming I did it correctly), but that didn't do the trick either. Is this fixable or is this a modeling issue that I can't fix & will just have to live with it?

    It is. Cannot be fixed.
    IIRC unloading SP2 (or Accel) would visually solve this, but that's hardly an option IMO .

    Oh ok, bummer then. I kind of figured it was a modeling issue and not a texture one. It's still very fun to fly though.

    Is this a free downloadable plane? If so, provide me the link & I will take a look into it. I have fixed a few that some said there were no fixes for.

    Yes it is a freeware plane. I think I originally got it from AVSIM, but you can also find it on Simviation. Here's the link to the plane: https://simviation.com/1/search?subm...ourier&x=0&y=0

    I also found the same plane, and 2 other variants of it (Float & Tundra/Bush Tires) in the Flightsim.com library: https://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/fslib...rchid=73278759

    I tried my best to get it sorted but no good. I downloaded a few planes, tried a few fixes that have worked on other planes and nothing worked. Good luck, I'd like to know if you get it working.

    Alright thanks for trying. I'm not very skilled in FSX aircraft modeling (at least yet; if my Sonex project goes well) so I can't fix it either; only the missing gauges in the panel & VC. The aircraft is still very fun to fly though; and it's not as bad from the VC other than the see-through hole/texture in the cockpit floor (and I fly 95% from the cockpit).
