    How to Make Decals in Armored Core 6

    Armored Core 6 allows players to use decals that can be unlocked in-game and decals of their own. To make a custom decal, select the “AC Design” option in the garage. There, navigate to the Image Editor. Here is where you will be able to create a custom decal. 

    Making a Decal in Armored Core 6

    To get started, you need to add a layer. At this point, you will be able to add a shape or letter of your choice. Adjust the size, color, and position to your liking. From here, you can add more layers to create the image you want. 

    It’s also good to keep in mind that players are able to set different gradients on pieces. This can come in handy when you need to add a bit more stylistic flair to your decal. It’s also possible to make any layer a mask. Just be sure that the mask layer is on top of the layers you wish to cover. 

    With more practice, you will be able to make more complex images to use as emblems or decals for your AC. With enough imagination and creative thinking, there are few limits to what you can create. However, if you’re playing the PC version of the game, there are ways to make the process a bit easier by overlaying images as templates.

    Applying and Uploading
