LIFE ON TITAN
To change the appearance of Moths in Hardwar, you first need to download the "base" skin(s) on this page. They are presented as zipped bitmap images for downloading. You cannot use the JPG preview files. It must be the bitmap version of the skin.
1) Download the zipped bitmap of the basic skin you want to work with. Unzip it and make copies for working with.
2) Open the unzipped bitmap image in any image editor you may have, like Windows Paint. Now the fun begins. Start coloring and designing your skin. Don't color in the green area.
3) When you're finished, save the file as a bitmap (BMP). You can give it whatever filename you'd like but the extension must be ".bmp".
4)To use the file in the game you'll need to download the U2.03 upgrade from Software Refinery. This upgrade adds a tab to Hardwar's main launch menu called "Moths". Under this tab select the Moth you want to skin and then the skin file you want to use. Now that Moth will appear skinned in the offline game.
I've got galleries of pre-made skins by various pilots available through the links to the right. If you've got a really hot looking design, send it to me and I'll post it on the site. Please zip the bitmap image you made and e-mail it to me.
