  1. G'day I'll see what I can do, been a tad busy lately with some real world projects that had to be done while the weather was dry. Do you mean just one big zip for each plane type?
  2. Having the same issue from time to time (but seems more frequent now), need to reboot to get it going again. And then only seems to run with only the minimal other apps going, I used to be able to run the sim with Photoshop, Illustrator, the viewer and chrome going all up at once and was able to exit and launch when ever I wanted, so do not know what has changed. I loose all mouse control and have to CTRL ALT DELETE to get to taskmanager and end the game before mouse comes back, So have you been able to sort it? My screen and game res are the same and as I said above I used to be able to (foolishly) run lots of things with the only resultant affect being a hit on the frame rate!
  3. Sadly no, when they get updated in the game, I then correct them, not always immediately mind, but I get around to it as soon as I can. For the Bf109E7 there is at least an excellent and fully compatible 4k template by ICDP, so you can at least make a few of your own custom skins while waiting for the official 4K updates. There are also quite a few Bf109G6 skins based on a 4K template, however there is a draw back in that the 4k normal map differs from that of the games official one so not all the rivets, panel lines, etc match with those of the default skins.
  4. Well as I hinted at in my Bf109G4 historic correction thread, I’ve burned some midnight oil yet again, so please find below links to the whats currently the last of the official 4K skins needing to be re-made historical, in the form of the Fw190A5. fw190a5.dds fw190a5_skin_01.dds fw190a5_skin_02.dds fw190a5_skin_03.dds fw190a5_skin_04.dds fw190a5_skin_05.dds fw190a5_skin_06.dds fw190a5_skin_07.dds fw190a5_skin_08.dds fw190a5_skin_09.dds fw190a5_skin_10.dds Default = \IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad\data\graphics\Planes\target folder\Textures\?????.dds Others = \IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad\data\graphics\skins\target folder\?????_skin_*.dds Target folder = fw190a5 Make sure mods is checked and as usual any problems just let me know. As usual enjoy

    Faux Hakenkreuz

    Looks to me like I've got a Brexit kind of result brewing, as the "I don't cares" seem to have about a 3rd of the results as do both to the leave (blank) and stay (Faux Harkenkreuz), although unlike in the UK in this case the stay vote has the nominal lead albeit by a somewhat small margin. Looks like I may have to run a second referendum Should be a simple as deleting the skins from the associated skin/texture directories, for example in the case of the Bf109G14: From \IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad\data\graphics\Planes\bf109G14\Textures\ delete: bf109G14.dds From \IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad\data\graphics\skins\bf109G14\ delete: bf109G14_skin_01.dds bf109G14_skin_02.dds bf109G14_skin_03.dds bf109G14_skin_05.dds bf109G14_skin_06.dds bf109G14_skin_07.dds bf109G14_skin_09.dds bf109G14_skin_10.dds
  9. Upon first seeing the Mossie and the map, that was one of my first thoughts as well. Steady on, I think they said in the briefing that the targets are the exterior wall and the guard quarters

    Faux Hakenkreuz

    Having altered a lot of historical 4K skins, Id have to disagree, as many of the faux versions are not symmetrical and require quite a bit of effort to convincingly remove and replace so I'd personally I would prefer to start from a blank canvas, however I'd have to agree that the faux versions do offer a guide to the size, shape and style for what needs to replace them.

    Faux Hakenkreuz

    I think you may have misunderstood, I'm not not asking for the Hakenkreuz (Swastika) as it is well understood that this is not an option, what I'm asking is to have the fake version removed and instead have plain unadorned tails and rudders on Luftwaffe skins, like that of the banners below:

    Faux Hakenkreuz

    G’day In light of the fact that the images used for the new product banners on the stores home page do not sport the faux Hakenkreuz, I was wanting to gauge the communities overall opinion in regards to the use of the faux Hakenkreuz on the tails and rudders of Luftwaffe aircraft within the sim, over my preferred option of having no insignia at all as the default. I understand that the removal of the these faux elements would require resources that are already in scare supply, but with that said I think it would be a relatively minor task to realise, if the weight of opinion was in support of such a notion. Of course then there’s always the issue of what to do in regards to the aircraft of the Fin’s, which apart from using FiAF late/post war roundels I have no solution. Lastly as the use of the actual Hakenkreuz is simply out of the question please do not even go there.
  13. Yes the new tittle images look very polished, and dare I say it balanced. Yet what I like most about the new tittle images is that the ones with Luftwaffe aircraft pictured do not sport the Faux Hakenkreuz and instead just have no insignia at all on the rudders, this is a trend I'd dearly like to see translated into the simulation one day as standard.
  14. Wow I have to say with this announcement that baring a few exceptions, pretty much everything I want from a WWII Europe perspective, both the map and the plane set offer up so many historical opportunities well beyond the scope of operation Overlord so I'm chuffed. If you are ever able to squeeze out a Battle of 1946 (Do-335, He-162 etc) then I'll be besides myself. Thanks
