Help with texture set editing in LE

Okay, dumb question: every .lod in the pack I've downloaded uses the same texture list 4000, 4001, 4002, etc. for however many .dds files used. How do you change this? If you try to install more than one .lod in your db, they all try to use the same textures. Simply append/change does not work becau...

F4Browse vs Rack.txt question

I am modding the old FF6.0 for a Vietnam campaign and I'm running into a rack-issue, I wondered if you wouldn't mind sharing your experience: I want to change the racks on the fuselage of the F-8 to the TER used by the F-4E variants for sidewinders as it looks more like the real rack than the defaul...

Correct, my point being that I'd like to see a campaign from a pre-AMRAAM/AIM-9M era... Now here's the really dumb question: why does there have to be a working ground campaign?

Dude, sweet!

Always liked that Luftwaffe cammo.

Dumb question: why do all the Phantom models have built-in hardpoint pylons? All the Navy Phantoms I've walked up to (quite a few) only mount pylons where they're mounting stores, otherwise the wings are clean to reduce (presumably) drag.
