Looking for a Modding Mod...

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure what to even call the thing I'm looking for, so my attempts at Googling it came to naught.  It's a utility(?) that paints bright, multiple colors on to vehicle and airplane texture bmp's (well, probably any kind of texture) so you can identify the various parts of a complex bmp.  Someone posted one to the repository years ago, and I thought I dld'd it at the time, but I can't find it in my files.  Anyone here know what I'm talking about? If I know what to call it, I'm sure I can find it online.

Thanks, and Merry Christmas!

This one's tame compared to the one I'm thinking of.  Further research based off the name on one of these is they are UV mapping tools for 2D mapping of 3D surfaces in-game.  These work well, but the one I recall would actually put a different color on each separate part of the texture.  Either that, or Timothy and I spent too much time together back in the day, lol.

Textures are mapped to models using UV coordinates. I'm not sure there is a specific name for the type of texture you want, but "UV grid" with the "checker" option pulls up a few on Google - https://www.google.com/search?safe=off&client=firefox-b&tbm=isch&q=uv+grids&chips=q:uv+grid,g_1:checker:Bq6VhtdZSz8%3D&usg=AI4_-kTuZJZIg8_wBDIcplFJNhTikHBAqQ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiPwJ2X7r_fAhXPSH0KHYdgDpcQ4lYIKigA&biw=1774&bih=1037&dpr=1

Thank you for the suggestions and information fellas. I think for now I'll hold off on delving into Blender and sbobovyc's mod tools, but it does look interesting. And thanks for the link to that thread...I had forgotten about it.
