Chris, that is by design, NBAI_Harrier_LM.dds is a texture sheet used for the night time slime lights on several FSX/P3D models I converted, including the Eurofighter Typhoon. I created it when I converted the Harriers, hence the name.

I am going to install Oman's Typhoons and I have a question. The paints were not included in the conversion pack so I am going to convert them myself. Do I need to do that alpha channel thing so the canopy is clear like you need to do with the Hornets?

I ask because I don't have scenery or a AFCAD for the home base so I might not be able to see them in the sim.

As a general principle always use an alpha that is compatible with the target system.

What I mean is that I have often used an FSX scheme for my system which I have converted to FS9 use. I simply flip the scheme and replace the alpha with an appropriate one that I have exported from an FS9 scheme.

Thanks. But I may not need to do anything. I just looked in the zip and there are bmp and dds textures in there. I downloaded the file but didn't actually look at the files until now.

But I will keep what you said in mind for when I need to convert MAIW textures.
