      Hello Welcome, many people have asked for skining tuts so i thought i’d help you lot out theirB) Gibbed Tools are needed – http://www.justcause2mods.com/index.php/mods/other/Modding-Tools/Gibbeds-Tool-Pack/

      So open up your Archive viewer and open up pc1.tab and right click and save lave.v034_sport_buggy.ee to you desktop .
      01.jpg

      Then drag the sport buggy.ee file over to Gibbed.Avalanche.SmallUnpack and a new folder should appear on your desktop . Open up the folder and open these 2 files with Paint.Net(free > http://www.dotpdn.com/downloads/pdn.html) –
      02.jpg

      First off when you open these files up go on to the v034_body_mpm one
      03.jpg
      The mpm files in the game are for colour lighting, the pink parts are dark colours and the blue is light. So change the pink with rest of the blue using Hue/saturation in the Adjustments menu.

      04.jpg

      When this is done correct , go to the v034_body_dif because this is the one you want to edit on top. If you take a look you can actual see the resumbulance of the diffrent body parts . The best way of finding the parts is to experiment athough iv’e al ready found these parts for you anyway.

      05.jpg

      Okay if you want simply put on a picture then its not that simple, as you can see your only getting half a part this is because the it will get mirriored over to the other side . So all vehicles in the game are basicly semetrical.I have grabbed a simple semetrical graphic from google and made a few more ajustments.

      06.jpg

      Once you’r happy
      with your work save both , v034_body_dif + v034_body_mpm as a .dds file with DXT1 Format.Once that is done drag the whole lave.v034_sport_buggy folder along with you edited files (inside) to gibbeds tool – Gibbed.Avalanche.SmallPack and it should create a file on your desktop called lave.v034_sport_buggy.sarc , Rename the end of the new file replacing .sarc to an .eez file. Finally drag that file to your dropzone folder.

      07.jpg

      (if you have no dropzone folder then create one called – C:Program FilesSteamSteamAppscommonjust cause 2Dropzone Load just cause 2 up find the Stinger Dune bug 84 (sport buggy) and their you go! 08.jpg

      thanks dude! this tutorial is not only useful for modding the buggy, but also for other vehicles. I used it on the Dalton N90 and it worked great! I prefer to use Adjustments –> Levels instead of Hue/saturation cause you just simply uncheck the blue channel and you put the level on the right all the way down and the one on the left too but not completely though.

      If you mean you can’t find them in game, it is because those two particular vehicles are set to spawn vary rarely, if at all in some areas.

      Use the blackmarket mod if you want to test your textures quickly as you can spawn any vehicle at any time.

      Plane is almost the same, if you know how to do a car you also can do a plane, just soem filenames are different. Just try and you will succeed!

      I can’t succeed.

      I tried doing the same thing.

      The cargo plane is VERY challenging that it just turned white. OP’s tutorial wasn’t as clear and didn’t make much sense, I don’t think he’s even English (no offense)

      Ah, NOW I think I see what you mean…

      When you go to the Paint.net website
      http://www.getpaint.net/

      Make sure to choose the Paint.NET v3.5.10 Link in the upper right corner
      ** v3.5.10 or whatever the current version is **

      AVOID THE OTHER DOWNLOAD BANNER ADS

      Do you mean .dds files? Paint.Net will open them. I use Paint.Net all the time and open these regularly.

      dif.dds
      mpm.dds
      nrm.dds

      Or maybe you’re talking about different files??

      Try it with an .eez version of the file instead of the .ee
      (there is usually one of each, in almost every case, for some strange reason.)
      I seem to remember reading that .eez works better/more consistently.
