I do like weathering on my skins but does anyone else think is's a bit overdone on the templates? I tend to lighten it up a bit by reducing the opacity of the weathering layers.

 

Also, I think the general overlay layers make the skin too dark. Compare the real life photos to the skins.

 

Not to in any way take away from these beautiful skins... I just think they would be even more exceptional being a bit lighter.

These are really nice

 

But these type of threads are just outrageously inefficient at distributing skins!

It’s just a gigantic mess compared to the official packs like RoF had. 

The work required to download and keep up with these multiple disorganized posts is just a waste of time really. These can never be seen in-game for SP unless on your own plane and the chance that two players will actually go through all this work and see that in MP is very small. 

A few months from now this thread will be buried way way far back on the forum where nobody will ever see it. 

 

The skins are about the most important and appealing graphics in the game and the work done on them is outstanding. 

 

It’s to a total catastrophe for the sim what a mess this lack of a system is!

Only 1CGS can bring some organization to this. Please.

I really dig the skins. If I had hundreds of extra hours I would spend the time to comb forums for them. 

But I don’t have this kind of time. And it does take hundreds of hours. And it’s not a productive use of my gaming time since these really can’t be used anywhere in the game besides just looking at them on your own screen. 

 

And placing skins pins on random threads like this makes searching for them too difficult. A year from now this unpinned thread will be buried way down on the forum and it will never be seen. Which is no justice for such nice work. 

 

Skins should be collected by 1CGS as user generated content and officially distributed with game updates. That’s the only way to actually get them into the game.

@SharpeXB, 

 

 We get it, you hate that you have to conduct a search for skins.  And bagging out the system or the lack of in this manner, certainly won't help the cause.

 

Make a request- ask the Mods for a Sub forum in FC for a Graphic mod folder, you never know, they might just hear you. :good::salute:

Already been asked. “Searching the forum” is not a viable way to install 4,000 skins. At the beginning of BoS a moderator already tried making pinned forum sections for each aircraft but that effort fell apart. It wasn’t very efficient either but now things are worse  

The situation is a really tragic mess. If you had seen how good RoF handled this you’d agree.

Oh come on... I hardly suspect it's really that tragic:rolleyes: If someone was bagging your work, would you be inclined to help grant their request?

Again....If you think it's a problem, then be proactive, make an official request to the Moderators to have it remedied. If that fails then at least you have tried.

Yes it really is. It’s throwing away some of the greatest artwork in the game.

There do exist unofficial skin packs, at least one of which is over 50 GB. 

 

I doubt that there can ever be a perfect way to handle skins. I suspect that the Hakenkreuz issue and varying interests throughout the community would cause problems for any official solution.

Rise of Flight has as close to a perfect solution as there can be. For varying interest there were separate fantasy and historical packs. I dare say with an EULA you could even handle the Hakenkreuz, It’s been handled that way by a previous IL-2 game, Wings of Prey. 

 

This is getting off topic, perhaps move this discussion over here

Disc space limit isn’t what it used to be. Games are routinely 100GB these days. But that is another advantage of the packs, you could decide which ones you wanted to install.

SharpeXB has a good point, in RoF the skins were I believe coordinated by the developers and then distributed in packs by them. IIRC there was much excitement when Pack 19 was released after a long wait. The work that the talented, very talented painters put into these beautiful creations is far too important and relevant to just be allowed to be scattered piecemeal through the forums. Perhaps they, or forum moderators could take up the mantle of Skin Coordinator, at least as far as Flying Circus is concerned.

I think a subforum dedicated to posting skins would be a huge benefit - somewhere where people could specifically browse skins without having to sift through the other forum posts. I'm also thinking of trying to set up a google drive for the skin-makers to post their files.

It would also be nice to standardize the names of the skins, indicate the personal ones, historic ones, fictional ones, squadron ones, use only zip files (universal format) and indicate the versions, I imagine, like v2, v3, to know what is the latest version of a particular skin, because some of the skins are updated with the same name.

 

If someone comes up with an online folder that only accepts the standardize skins (people can make a poll to decide how the standardization should be done), it would be piece of cake for people to download it. I just think it has to be clear if the skin is personal, historical, fictional or a squadron one, with no abbreviations for this so that newbie’s can’t mess up.
