  1. You’re welcome, Vander. I’m still trying to track down some more but I’m having difficulties accessing @GCF’s skin directory. Hopefully I can wrap up the Dr1 skins later today. S!
  2. I would definitely hope Flying Circus is not in its “final state”. It has just been released, and I would expect many more improvements and added content in the near future. Cheers!
  3. I've been trying to fill out any missing Dr.1 squadron defaults, and I noticed a problem with the Dr.1 template (my old nemesis, the "Grease" layer in the Weathering group), which wouldn't allow colors to be visible on one edge of the elevator surface (see the attached image below). It existed on all of my previous skins that had colored tail surfaces, so I've updated those Dr.1 skins to eliminate this error. Obviously it's not a big deal for those who have previously downloaded any of those old skins, but the names are the same so you can always download and replace any of those old skins if you wish. Some of the older skins may have had a few minor improvements included since my working file has progressed over time. I've noted the skins that have been updated. S!
  4. Thanks for pinning this post. Is @GCF still adding skins to this? I thought (maybe) @US93_Larner has taken the baton since last summer? Not sure ... * still dreaming of our own FC historical/fictional threads in the skins forum *
  5. @Picchio The answer to your question is a resounding yes. FC has just been released, and I think Pat had about a week to incorporate all the new WWI elements into PWCG. Pat is constantly updating PWCG based on FC updates and improvements, combined with all the user feedback he receives. I enjoyed RoF career mode, but it couldn’t hold a candle to PWCG after it developed over time. Whatever limitations PWCG now has will soon be forgotten history as long as 1C doesn’t completely cut off FC development. I’m sure you will see more and more content and better mission variety in PWCG, just give it a little time. S!
  6. FYI - it’s not even possible for me to wear glasses in the Odyssey+ headset (the frame fits, but the O+ lenses are too close to my eyes so the lenses touch). I guess it’s not too expensive to have prescription lenses made for your VR headset though. How cool is that? https://widmovr.com
  7. Hi, SeanD. I have the Odyssey+ and I don’t have any problems using the headset without my reading glasses. I’m not sure if it’s the same for those who are short-sighted. Anyway, I don’t feel I can offer a completely honest review of VR due to my system being a bit too weak for VR (i7-3770k & GTX1060). I knew I would need to upgrade my pc eventually, but I will say that my experience with VR has been positive enough to convince me to hurry up and spend the extra money for a really great system. The immersion is fantastic and you can really feel the speed and altitude of your aircraft, and for me, landings are way easier in VR. I just miss the resolution you get with a monitor. My graphic settings are pretty low, so I’ll be thrilled once I have my new system up and running. I’m guessing it might be a little painful to make the switch to VR from a 34” 4K monitor. Hope that helps! S! Edit: I just watched a YouTube video today on the subject of VR and flight sims. You might find it interesting.
  8. I'm bumping this for any Central skinners who may have missed this originally. S!

  10. I like the sound of the ai improvements; 16. AI pilots won't crash into the ground while doing a defense spiral maneuver;17. AI pilots won't get stuck in a shallow dive during a defense maneuver;18. AI pilots won't attempt dangerous evasion maneuvers at low altitudes which caused them to crash; including my favorite... 19. AI pilots won't get too excited following a falling target and crash into the ground after it; 😂
  11. +1 We don't need 1C to distribute them, just please allow us to post them in the forum, separated by: Game, Historical, Fictional, and Plane Set. Loosen the restrictions and voting on fictional skins, and set up a method to support and utilize historical skins in game.
  12. This may be a dumb question, but can we not download official skins that appear in Flying Circus like we could in RoF? If they are not available to distribute, how can mission makers (like PWCG) assign them in campaigns or missions? Thanks in advance for any help. S!
  13. I’ll start with all of the J11 DR1 skins. If I didn’t already create them, I know who did and where to get them. I have an early J11 default (based on MvR’s 127/17 DR1) that I’ve never published. I’ll edit this post with links to my skins, or the original painter’s skin (provided they approve).

His Dr1 425/17 was thought to have been photographed at Lechelle during that time, but there are others that believe the all-red Dr1 was actually 177/17 (which is why there are two different versions of 177/17).

  14. @SYN_Vander I’d be happy to provide any DR1 skins you need. I’ve been putting off making squadron skins long enough, but I can turn them out quickly. The aces probably already exist, but I might need to update a few with the iron cross. Either way, I’ll provide the links (for the existing skins) or modify those if they have the balkenkreuz. S!
