DL LINK ADDED!!!

I took the original camo texture, which has honestly grown on me over the years, and retraced it in an attempt to get a cleaner more standard Imperial coloring. With that said, I may make that missing camo paint scheme that grew on me for some other imperial assault craft, IE, Stormtrooper Transport.

Note: My work is based off the original textures by Marco Antonio.

FG1 = Original Assault Camouflage by Marco Antonio
FG2= Imperial Grey
FG3= Imperial Green Stripe
FG4= Cygnus Factory Promotional Livery
FG5= Damaged/Worn Imperial Grey (Use mission editor Yogme to select this FG color)
FG6= Black and Grey Inquisitor Camo (Use mission editor Yogme to select this FG color)

Version 1.2 Opt DL Link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/p2uxyhld1987y ... e.opt?dl=0

--Changelog--
1.0 - 4 x flight group colors
1.1 - Fixed distance model textures to use the default grey for flight groups 2-4, considering at that distance its hard to tell anything other than it not being generally blue.
1.2 - Added damage model for FG5, and Black and grey camo for FG6 (Use the editor Yogme to select more FG colors than the default 4.)

Love it. Looking forward to the final result.

Do you by any chance plan to give the Skipray a factory paint scheme as well?

Yes. That was actually going to be first but I just had to tackle the harder one first.

I'm still working on the damaged/poorly maintained 5th flight group but its not as sharp as I'd like. Then I'll work on a black and grey camo.

Progress report on the damaged model. My thinking with the smaller ships is that they wont last long with full hull breaches, so dirt, cracked glass, askew panels, blaster scars and missing panels should do it. So I gave it the Millennium Falcon negligence/swamp X-wing look.

Here's another Update, added a black and grey camo, added my inquisitor logo as a sort of signature.

Great work ual002. Any extra bit of colour in space is welcome.
Anyone have suggestions for any missions the new colours would work well with?

I can also confirm that these new colours are part of the official Escort Shuttle v2.2 installer online now.
So you can choose to use this version as an option when installing the ship.

EDIT: There is a small bug in the installer. It sets the Skirmish pic to the Lambda Shuttle not the ESR.
If you download this file and put it in your Resdata folder that will fix it.
This is ONLY needed if you have Escort Shuttle v2.2.

The Escort Shuttle actually only shows up in one mission of the campaign, so there's not a lot to work with.

There are two separate flight groups in the mission, so you could give one a different colour. Would kinda break the uniform Imperial look though.

Probably best to just leave the new FG colours as tools for someone to play with in custom missions.

B1M4.

I put together a spreadsheet of which missions each ship in the game appears in.

I could put that in a google doc or something if people think that would be useful?

Here's the sheet. Let me know if you can access it okay. If all is good, I'll drop it in a new thread in case it's useful to anyone else.

Family / Rebel missions.

I'll put this in its own thread with a bit more explanation and some notes of interest to stop distracting from the Escort Shuttle FG thread.

I recommend only using black camo for vader, or secret order stuff.

BUT the Secret Order as such should be not recognizible. Usually they used ISB and Navy Ships or q-ships.

Infact the Inquisitorius is a public face to many secretive agency of dark side agents within the empire. Such a livery (with the white one for Compnor and the red one for Imperial Intelligence/Ubiqtorate) would be a boon designin missions and campaign
@ual002 do you think would be possible to get the livery for the Chimaera such us it is depicted in SW rebels?
