  1. Thanks for your input guys, it really helps a lot!
  2. Ok, so sometimes I run a black and white image in Photoshop Channel Mixer, using a Blue filter to replicate the way a lot of those old photographs darken the reds and lighten the blues. It might not be 100% accurate, but I've found that it usually works pretty well for my use. Below is a PC12 (left) vs. PC10 (right) and their simulated black and white photographs using the blue filter. I'm fairly happy with the browner version, and it seems to appear closer in tone to the original black and white photograph. Any thoughts?
  3. This is a good question. We have a brown canvas layer in our template, and I’ve always been unsure if it’s PC10 or PC12 and when to use which. Maybe my eyes are biased, but the machines in the black and white photos almost look more brown. Maybe I should try the browner version?
  4. I'm with you on the varnished wood, mate. I think the Major had some nicely varnished wood bits on his machine as well as the whitest nose of the bunch. I suspect everyone in the 203rd had the front of their fuselages painted white because we can see that the machine next to Collishaw's has an unpainted cover, and the contrast is striking (see image below). As a result, I believe his Camel should look something like the lower image. Any thoughts?
  5. Yes, I can see that logo in the photgraph. Thanks for sharing, I'll definitely include that. Cheers! Edit: And I do agree with you on the mysterious dark bordering around the roundel and squadron circle, but the "cigar band" border looks just too definitive to me. Here's what it looks like in red ...
  6. Wow, Great stuff as always, Oliver! Thanks! I was going to ask you if the RNAS 3 squadron's logo was the circle, but it seems you already found confirmation of this. (I figured I would include a squadron default skin). Looking at the lineup image below, I'm curious about a couple other items. Are the cowls painted white? Especially Collishaw's Camel, the entire metal part of the front fuselage looks awfully bright. And are his spars painted? They look much darker than the other machines' spars. Cheers!
  7. Hi, all. I'm working on Raymond Collishaw's Camel D3147 from his time in RAF No. 203 squadron (RNAS 3rd squadron). Our RoF skin looked like the sketch below, but closer inspection of the photograph (lower) shows that the serial no. clearly shows on the vertical stabilizer, and the white band/circle appears to have a border on it, most likely black or red. I'm leaning towards red, but I would like to hear from others on what they think. Cheers!
  8. And how ironic is it that Microsoft FS2020 doesn't have an in-game image of their own product when mapping your flight controls?! There goes all my hope that they would consider bringing it back and/or updating it for 2020. Even Microsoft seems to have forgotten it ever existed!!! 🙄
  9. Here is the Fokker DVIIF of Oblt. Lothar von Richthofen of Jasta 11 http://www.mediafire.com/file/e2cat5qafu5dnoh/FD7F_J11_Richthofen.dds/file
  10. Here is the default skin for the US 94th Spad 13 http://www.mediafire.com/file/zvekrry2jsp495f/Spad13_US94_Default.dds/file @US93_Larner deserves 99.999% of the credit for this skin, as he was generous enough to let me use his excellent Spad template. All I needed to do was create the Hat in the Ring emblem, which was made fairly easy by having a clear image of Rickenbacker's logo. Hopefully my work is worthy of this beautiful Spad template! 😉
  11. At least you’re half right ....
  12. I think it happened only once. What happens when people lose access to their flight records? They post about it on the forum. I searched and can't find a thing, other than the one time that it actually happened. 777 even had the courtesy to warn everyone that this was going to happen (see the image below). Yet there are no other similar warnings or mentions of flight records being affected in any of their other update notes. I don't know why people keep thinking this happened regularly in RoF. It never happened when I was using flight records for skin preview images (approx. 2013 - 2015), and there doesn't seem to be any evidence that it happened more than one time ... update 1.028 in Sep. 2012.
  13. It's for my skin preview images like this one: I recorded the 6 views used (my "in game" mini image not included) for my latest skin the day before this last update ... 😔 So all of my following Fokker DVII skin preview images can be cranked out in like 15 minutes each (I've timed myself before out of curiosity). The problem is, the first image takes me a few hours to create, but that's OK if I'm going to make a lot of skins and preview images. Every time I lose my tracks ... it's back to square one. Like I mentioned, I was fortunate to have never had that problem back in my RoF days, but Flying Circus has burned me a few times already. This last update trashed my flight records for the Camel, Dolphin, Bristol F2BF2, SE5a, Albatros, Dr1, and now the FD7. It's very frustrating to say the least. Cheers!
