X-Plane Normal Maps a.k.a. “_NML”

article_marc_wing_texture_nmlAn article about the X-Plane Normal Maps a.k.a. “_NML” by Marc C. Leydecker a.k.a. Belga12345.

Besides that Marc is a highly skilled airport developer and SketchUp guru, he’s also a skilled livery painter and since I know Marc now for a while, I asked him, after he released another Italian SAR Albatross painting, if it was possible to paint for me this awesome N98TP livery.

During the painting process, Marc inform me about Normal Maps or NML files and on behalf of Marc, I would like to share this information with you. This article is intended for those who start from scratch with NML file and perhaps, after you’ve read it, you would like to add something to it via a comment.

As long as comments are “structured”, I’m quite sure Marc appreciates this. Curious, check out these exclusive Albatross N98TP screenshots!
