  1. Here is the Jasta 7 late default Albatros D.Va http://www.mediafire.com/file/1ccfodivyphjxv6/AD5_J7_Default_APR18.dds/file Hera is the Jasta 7 late black wing alternate Albatros D.Va http://www.mediafire.com/file/3cxbnq3rubt04ff/AD5_J7_Default_Black_Late.dds/file Note: Unfortunately I missed several minor texturing issues, most notably the squiggles and blurry area in and behind the corner of the radiator on the top wing (see image below). I've updated the skins and download links. Replace any previously downloaded Jasta 7 skins if you want the latest fixes. My modified template has been updated with these fixes (along with my Balkenkreuz markings if anyone wants to use them) and can be downloaded from the original post. Cheers!
  2. Man, I was really tryna find this thread a couple weeks ago! 🙄
  3. Holy crap, Larner, this looks amazing! Are you drawing this with a mouse?! Let me know when you’re giving your first lessons. 🤣

  5. Yeah, the AI in QMB is very odd. You should use this instead: S!

  7. I’ve seen these as well. I’ve been trying to dial in my graphics settings after a new build/install, so I kept assuming that I’ve tried a bad setting and needed to revert to a previous setting. Once I started to realize that it was only appearing when injured, I just figured that it was an intentional effect or something. It’s definitely annoying.
  8. Hello all! I will be uploading all future AD5 4K skins I create in this thread. I will use this post as a quick reference with all skins listed below. Hope you enjoy and feedback always welcomed! S!

Cheers!
  9. Hi, all. For those that aren't aware, the AD5 model has a texturing issue where skins are mapped poorly just behind the cockpit on the upper portion of the fuselage starboard side. It causes a bracket to appear in a second, incorrect position. Skins can be modified to (sort-of) fix this, but the AD5 texture file still shows this bracket in two different locations. I have updated the AD5 template for use if anyone wants to create skins that show this correction, and I am also providing the updated texture file for anyone who would like to view any of the corrected skins properly. See the images below for examples. Cheers! http://www.mediafire.com/file/8ghpscakb6v6oq6/AlbatrosD5_Public_NEW.zip/file Original Fixed Note: Install "data" folder and all of its sub-folders into "IL-2 Sturmovik Great Battles" folder. Replace all (don't worry, I included a copy of the original texture file and an extra copy of the fix - just in case an update overwrites it.)

  10. Yeah, @US93_Larner, I was curious about your experience so I checked out your AD5 template. As it turns out your template doesn’t have an embedded profile, so it should work well for any user ... which is probably how all templates should be distributed. S!
  11. @ZachariasX Thanks a ton for all this useful info! It makes much more sense now, and it gave me the idea to research about how PSD handles content created by other users (i.e. all the various FC templates). Here is what I learned ... 1) By default, PSD does not notify the user of the color profile of an image when opened. This should be changed, and/or the policies should be changed to "Off" or "Convert to Working ..." Like this ... After turning on the notifications I started receiving the warning message shown below. 2) I've been working in sRGB (as noted by my color settings), and by default every template retained its own color profile. The Dr1 and Camel templates are sRGB, so they played nicely with my PSD settings and the .dds files matched my template. The others are Adobe RGB (1998), so when I created those .dds files, they used my sRGB setting and the resulting .dds files looked different than the template. 3) Removing the color profiles from the templates entirely seems to give me more consistent results. I'd be curious to know if most experienced skin creators prefer this method. Anyway, thanks for all your help mate! Cheers!
  12. Unfortunately, I was doing exactly that. By default Photoshop turns off notifications of color profile discrepancies when opening new files. I turned them on and I can see that the templates that were giving me trouble were saved as Adobe RGB (1998), while the ones that worked well were sRGB. I think I'm back in business!
  13. But isn’t my color space shown in the color settings window? They are identical. This is what baffles me. That, and the fact that other templates produce no changes. If there was a problem with my system or PSD settings, it would happen to all .dds files I create. It has to be something in the templates. Cheers!
  14. Any help from my fellow skin creators would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!
