If I am correct, PLTEX files are not a single image, but a collection of image patches, packed in a certain way. PLTEX is an Orbiter specific format.

I have found no way to extract data from PLTEX.

There is some tool, but I don't remember where I got it. But it extracts the tex file to thousands of bmp files.

Here's another tool that I made that splits .tex files into their seperate .dds files. From those, you should be able to convert to another type a lot more easily:

TEX to DDS Converter

I've forgottent to post it here

The question Was not easy in fact.

There were no tool to do such a thing. text file are only used by orbiter.

I've then created this summer my own tool to extract tex to tif.

It has been posted for a while, but I forgot to close this thread.
