  1. To complete the latest batch of 4k historically corrected official skins, following are links to the ones for the Bf109F4, well almost as it would appear that the skin that used to be bf109f4_skin_13.dds (White 1) has now been replaced by the skin that used to be bf109f4_skin_14.dds (Black 13)! So not sure what happened there? (Maybe if your reading this ICDP, you can shed some light into that) bf109f4.dds bf109f4_skin_01.dds bf109f4_skin_03.dds bf109f4_skin_04.dds bf109f4_skin_05.dds bf109f4_skin_06.dds error found and fixed 19:18 AU EST bf109f4_skin_07.dds bf109f4_skin_08.dds bf109f4_skin_09.dds bf109f4_skin_10.dds bf109f4_skin_11.dds bf109f4_skin_12.dds bf109f4_skin_13.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 = bf109f4 Make sure mods is checked and as usual any problems just let me know. Enjoy
  2. G14 is only 2K at the moment, but if should change then I'll correct them historically too.
  3. Well I’ve been at it again, no not that, this, find below links to the official Fw190A8/F8 4K skins now made historical. fw190a8.dds fw190a8_skin_01.dds fw190a8_skin_02.dds fw190a8_skin_03.dds fw190a8_skin_04.dds fw190a8_skin_05.dds fw190a8_skin_06.dds fw190a8_skin_07.dds fw190a8_skin_08.dds fw190a8_skin_09.dds fw190a8_skin_10.dds (not blink and you'll miss it, I've added some very subtle remnants of a Haken to the tail of skin 10) 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 = fw190a8 Make sure mods is checked and as usual any problems just let me know. Enjoy
  4. I use Photoshop with the nvidia plug-in istalled from the following link: https://developer.nvidia.com/nvidia-texture-tools-adobe-photoshop Despite what the page says, works fine with CC as well,
  5. Well due popular demand..... I set up my PC today (post move) and then downloaded the update, extracted all the official skins for the Schwalbe and historically corrected them. Due to the faux Haken not being particularly symmetric it took a little more effort to blend in the replacements, but hopefully I was able to pull it off properly, so use the follow links to come get them. me262a.dds me262a_skin_01.dds me262a_skin_02.dds me262a_skin_03.dds me262a_skin_04.dds me262a_skin_05.dds me262a_skin_06.dds me262a_skin_07.dds me262a_skin_08.dds me262a_skin_09.dds me262a_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 = Me262A Make sure mods is checked and as usual any problems just let me know. Enjoy
  6. .............getting there! Plugged in and downloaded, now just got to extract the files, hopefully later today. I still need to neaten and sort out all the cables, but that sort of detail can just wait.
  7. Can only agree, so much so this is only the 3rd time that I've moved in my 50 plus years (I was only 3 for the first one so that does not count), and during each move I have sworn black and blue that the next move would be into a pine box. Even after almost a week I still seem to be surrounded by what seems to be a endless sea of boxes, my still boxed library on its own is cluttering up half of one of the rooms awaiting some bookshelves to be purchased and assembled (IKEA to the rescue), and then there's all the boxes of hobby stuff (I have far too many of them) out in the shed. The PC is at least unpacked but as of yet not set up, I have to try and plug all the important peripherals (Joystick, Throttle and Rudders) back into the places from whence they came to hopefully avoid the need to reassign them in game. I hope tho do this, this weekend and get the update installed so I can look at historically correcting the Me262A, Fw190A8 and the Bf109F4 default skins. Cheers
  8. Seeing that I’ve just moved house, sadly setting up of my study and the PC are a low priority (apparently the kitchen and the bedrooms are more important), so not much likely to happen for a few more days in that regard. But thanks for the heads up anyways, and very much looking forward to seeing your A8 4K beauties.
  9. Make sure you have Mods activated ticked in the settings, this allows the new skins to override the game defaults. As replacement skins as are other textures are technically classed as a mod, but not in the same sense as they where in Il2-46, so do not be concerned about ticking that box. You will get a banner reminding you that Mods are activated each time on start up, which you will need to acknowledge to proceed, which is a tad annoying but the end just a minor inconvenience, I'm an off liner but I understand that the MP server must also have mods activated to see them online, but someone else may need to elaborate further as far as that is concerned.
  10. Just tested the link to fw190d9_skin_04 and all seems to be fine for me, so can you give it another go?
  11. Sorry I've been away for a couple of days, I will check what's up with fw190d9_skin_04 after work. Only a brain draining 7 hours from now.
  12. Sorry I did not really wish to give this thread any further unecesarry traction, but just wanted to agree with the above, in that as a default I’d prefer to see no Haken over the Faux Haken. But then again as an offliner all my skins are historical.
  13. G’day Joe I’ve just.been correcting the offical 4K skins as they come along,, as I was doing it for myself anyways I decided to share, so the short answer is yes but only as the get officially updated, most if not all those in 2K have already be done and there is a thread dedicated to this in the mods section, if you have not already been there. They’ve also update the thumbnails, which is something I plan to try and do also. mod-historically-correct-official-skins-2k-and-4k Cheers
  14. Mexican myself, currently living in Melbourne, but in the process of moving a little further east into country Victoria. Aachen or more accurately Merzbrück Airfield will be more or less central on upcoming Bodenplatte map, which I'd think should be somewhat of a novelty for you!
  15. 🍺 idea sounds excellent! As to the popup it is our guilty reminder that we are straying to the dark side, and sadly can't be got rid of. Wife is Swiss and has several German relies, so where about's are you at the moment?
