Paint for the In-Game Buzzard. Note, this will also change the paint for any buzzards that spawn naturally, not just ones you spawn with a trainer.

Paint for US Army 1st Air Cav, Afghanistan, Argentina, Chile, Columbia, Croatia, Denmark, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Finland, Guinea, Israel, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Kenya, Lebanon, Malaysia, Malta, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey.

Follow this path to the file to overwrite:


If you wish to retain the original buzzard Paint, while in OpenIV, extract the file buzzard2.ytd. I typically extract the original .ytd to the same folder as the dlc.rpf and rename it to orig_buzzard2.ytd.

When ready to overwrite with one of the inlcuded liveries, toggle "Edit mode", top right button, and select buzzard.ytd, right click on the entry and select replace, then select the buzzard2.ytd from the extracted zip file.


Once the new .ytd file is in place, open buzzard2.ytd with OpenIV, then rename buzzard2_livery to something like buzzard2_livery_orig, then rename your selected paint, for example buzzard2_livery1stAirCav to buzzard2_livery.

Just to confirm the livery, I'd click on the buzzard2+hi.yft or buzzard2.yft file to open the OpenIV Model Viewer to see what the model will look like with the new livery.

Repeat the process for

Spawned the buzzard with the your choice of trainer

I would also add that if you think you've messed up the patchday8ng file, you can always copy the original dlc file and overwrite the one in the mod folder. I would note that there are some mods that overwrite vehicles, so using the original dlc file might remove any mods already in the patchday8ng file.

I've included a GIMP .XCF file with the roundels, etc. if you'd like to use my work as a starting point for your own mod.
