Official Skin Template Links (Updated 4/11/21)


Recommended Posts

i will be doing the blue and yellow noses as well as 357'th and 78'th . Only what was present in that area . As for the P38 i just hope we wont come across the problem of skinning the exterior section of the second boom .

I will be doing what I'm gonna do. I do 'em for the pleasure (and sometimes on people's request/pleasure). I got a couple in mind and I would imagine that others may have the same one(s) but hey, the more the merrier!! :salute::coffee:

I am not complaining or chasing people to work faster.  I just don't understand how things work...

 

How do we get new aircraft with a selection of skins but we have to wait for a template to be created?   In my ignorance,  I would expect that there had to be a template in order to create the default skins we get with the new aircraft.   That is obviously not the case but does anyone know what actually happens?    Are the aircraft modelled with skins already applied in the 3D modelling phase then someone has to painstakingly build a 2D template from scratch in the same way as someone might make a skin based on photographs or an airfix model?

I imagine they do have their own template when they are making the official skins. They probably look like my template. Very messy, many unnecessary layers, stuff with odd names that were supposed to be temporary that you forgot about and now it's just there. Basically someone like ICDP or Jason takes the dev templates and sorts through the mess, cleans them up, organises them, and makes them presentable for public release. That can take some time.

Yeah but it's like walking into my dad's garage/workshop. He may know exactly where everything is but to me it just looks like a messy trash heap.

In the old il2 1946, the code scheme of the airport had handled in the settings, was not the part of the skin, i reckon, that that is not a may. Then we know years in the base of years. I’ve distored. Would bych welcome at least to oficial skins, when what was more clearly on air, and for air camera preview.

You'll probably notice if you do any skins that the details such as weathering, riveting, panelling etc. on the ''public templates' are generally far more detailed and, well, refined. This has to be arranged and correlated by someone like ICDP, Blackhellhound etc, usually ICDP. Well, he's done all the default skins for the new planes and so I would imagine that he will be arranging templates for human consumption as we speak. 

Just check a skin that is a default in-game one against one that has been made by someone with an 'after-market' template and you can see the difference quite plainly.

It is for this reason that whenever I do a skin I ALWAYS credit the creator of the template as I KNOW what work is involved in creating one (I've done loads and believe me, it's a lot) and also how much time it consumes.

Patience my friend, patience...

:salute:

ps I hope this don't come across as anything other than a friendly heads-up... ;)

 

I do dabble in skins but to be honest I had not noticed that the default ones were not to the same standard as the templates. I rarely look very closely at skins unless I am working on them and I never get to work on default skins.

 

I know people often disguise a complaint inside a 'I don't understand..' query but honestly I was not being impatient, I was really just asking out of curiosity.  OTOH I am eager to see the new tempest template because I belong to 56 sqn and need to produce at least 8 skins with our own letters and maybe our own emblems beneath the cockpit eg US-C is flown by our Polish CO so he would probably rather have a Polish flag than the default one (what is that? Norwegian?)

Greetings Jason,

the download link for Bf 109F-4 template is broken. Klicking on it generates a message "generating new download key" but that doesn't work. So, no download possible.

May I ask for a working download link?

best regards

@ICDP

Ok, thank you for the answer.

 

I just checked the template you send, and I see with the reflection of the sun on the body's plane the inscription Moonbeam McSwine with the victory marks and the Squadron letters HO and the W on the vertical fine. If it is easy to remove can you tell me on which layer did you put this ?

Hi all,

 

UPDATE: I have updated my the P-51D template to add some additional fixes and new layers to aid skinners.

  • Raptorattacker has generously provided his chequered nose and tail layers.  It might not seem like much but this is hours of work to get right.  So thanks go to @Raptorattacker
  • RAF markings (including 112 Squadron shark mouth)
  • More accurate blue nosed b*****ds layer.
  • Some fixes to prop hub layer
  • Fixes to dirt layer texture joins.

To get these fixes please download the template again from the same link above.

Thanks! Does anyone know which Hamilton Standard logo was used on this version's prop blades? Also, does anyone have a clear photo of what the stencils are supposed to say? Third, is there supposed to be anything stenciled on the backside of the blades?
