    I followed a tutorial to make skins on youtube, and when I finished making it, I opened BeamNG but when I look for it in the paint section it is nowhere to be found. I'm trying to add lettering to the D15. Anyone know how to fix it?

    I fixed the skin. The problem was that the materials and jbeam file were still .txt files, when they should be .cs files and .jbeam files.

    Ok so I tried to update the graphic a little bit to resemble my boss's truck a bit more. I didn't touch anything else except the paint.net file, but now it's showing up orange as "no texture". Can ya please take a quick look at it again? also Would you be able to tell me what the issue is between the two? I'd appreciate it.

    Found the bug. Your image type is ".pdn" but the file name in the materials.cs was ".dds". I fixed it.

    I didn't use it, just fixed it. The problem can be the file type, ALWAYS USE DDS FILES IN YOUR SKIN MOD, probably game doesn't support the .pdn files

    When you change your file type, you have to edit the material file, too. Fixed it
