No worries gents. If you haven't already, run over to Rafi's template post and shoot him a upvote or thanks. He deserves it. 

 

More late war madness.

I'm losing hairs about this JG 5 skin man.

 

For the 190 via the YT comment? I removed a lot of liveries/skins because they were cluttering up and was pretty sure they weren't being used. Let me run through my external and GDrive account to see if it's still there. Even if it isn't, I'm 99.9% certain I still have the PSD.

Well that would possibly never be the case. I usually prospect for even more skins to clutter my hard-drive and look beautiful with.

No go. I deleted the PSD's and removed the GDrive links. You could always get it from Arthur or I could do a version for the A5 for ya.

So I've started building the camo patterns for the G14 from the ground up. While these are somewhat specific to the next JG pack I'm working on, they also coincide with a sort of universal adopted pattern utilized in late 44-45. Of course the late war camo and color utilization varied from one squadron to the next, especially in relation to the theatre and specified AO or Area of Operations, but this is something I can alter and adjust from one JG to the next. If applicable of course.

Almost done with camouflage, weathering, and signage. A JG5 pack is the first up followed by a potential JG77 pack. However, I'm tempted to wait to do JG77 until Rafi works his magic on the K4 as their aircraft had some really great color and camo pattern combinations.

I tried to adapt some of my earlier schemes to the G14 and it didn't quite feel right. So I'm going back and starting from scratch. Again, I just wanna say thank you for all the work you put into the template. Everyone greatly appreciates it.

This is a test-bed version. Anyone can download this livery, however I'd appreciate any feedback, bug reports and any and all issues you might encounter when using it, no matter how small. Camo doesn't align? Report it. Missing camo sections? Report it. Signage/emblems in the wrong place or too large, to small etc etc etc. Report it.

Hi Det,

 

on the right wing below the Balkenkreuz near the flaps i can see silver/light grey line. Its below the left portion of the wing Balkenkreuz.

You can barely see it, it doesnt matter if flaps are extended or retracted.

 

Am i right that the fuselage Balkenkreuz is green? Its only a statement. (I know some Balkenkreuze were filled up with paint)

 

Question:

Now i got used to it but why is the outer rim of the tailwheel white?

 

Sometimes ago i asked RafiGer and if i remember correctly it was a kind of reminder for him. Its his template, right?

Mainwheels and tailwheels whit white outlines where used in hot weather conditions i think you know that too.

 

The rest seems top notch.

 

S!

Hello Detcord,

 

Only looked at in the viewer so far

 

1) the cowl clips do not match the paint - this is most obvious on the 2 situated on the MG cowl in front of the windscreen, on the stb upper front latch and on the port latch behind the supercharger intake.

 

2) lower outer port leading edge slat has a rogue line of weathering

 

3) there are two hatches on the outer underside of the wings - both appear to have a misaligned shadow layer situated forward of them (a hangover from a previous template layer?)

 

4) The cover for the windscreen dicer bar on the top of the MG cowl doesn't match the paint

 

5) gun smoke residue on the port side engine cowl is sharply cut off

 

6) Prop Spiral has many notched and needs blending better

 

7) Holes such as the fuse jacking point and those around the stab and tail and those on the leading edge slats are solid black and not cut out of the alpha

 

Some personal taste stuff 

 

The very matte finish greatly reduces the ability of lighting model to bring out detail in the stressed metal and rivet indentation effects.

 

The panel lines lack definition and are too vague. I appreciate its taste and too much make it look diecast but , to my eyes there is too little and certainly some of the access covers lack any "edge" to them.   

 

Cheers

 

BOO

Future updates are unlikely. You guys are free to do what you want with the provided textures.

 

I might get back to it once the K4 is released, no promises though.

I'm not leaving, mate. I just need to take a break from Photoshop and spend some actual time flying, which is something I haven't done in almost a year. I was only concentrated liveries and livery requests that I forgot what makes this sim and the developer support of it so amazing.

 

I did the same thing with Stellaris. I created a mod for that game that grew so exponentially to almost 70,000 subscribers that I stopped playing it and concentrated solely on modding. I forgot what playing the game was like and much like IL-2, I only booted it up to check my work.

I fall into the same routine. Great work as always Det! Looking awesome! We appreciate your contribution!
