PSD Template for creating custom Whiteboards.

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! I was working on a mission for my unit and made a few custom whiteboard textures to go along with the briefing and figured I would share it with the community.

This PSD has a blank whiteboard background I created with the shape tool and added some inner shadow, it also has BIS Altis map Whiteboard in there for use with missions. I also included a polaroid frame that is completely resizable, a posted note, and some tape. To get the text effect that I used on the photos below just use a handwritten font and put the layer mode to color burn(doesn't matter for black font, but looks good with the red).

To use it in your map:

-Find your mission folder and create a new folder called Pics(or whatever you want, I use "Tex" for Textures, if you dont already have one) and place your saved .PAA in there.

(I save my file in photoshop as a PNG and open it in TEXVIEW and select DXT1 and save as .PAA)

-Go into your mission and lay down a blank whiteboard

-In the whiteboards INIT type This setObjectTexture [0, "*FOLDERNAME*\*FILENAME*.PAA"]; (Ex: this setObjectTexture [0, "Tex\My_Awesome_Whiteboard.paa"]; )

-Save and preview the Mission.

What kind of font did you use in your demo image? I'm trying to find a font that I like, and that looks great.

Say, could a .XCF version for us (Gimp users) who are too poor to have Photoshop be an option?
