After looking around it seems there's space for a .dds custom photo in the texture folder of each separate plane! 
So for instance:
"SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad\data\graphics\Planes\TempestMkVs2\Textures\custom_photo.dds"

 

I had a lot of fun with this during beta testing, with some help from @Obelix: :)

 

(Just don't tell Robin Olds 😄 )

Salutations,

 

It took me 53 minutes to download and install the 5.35 GB game update. I guess I should feel fortunate. Not bad at all. :yahoo:

This looks so good! But I do need some help with this - I've created a custom .dds file which I've dropped into the folder of my plane of choice but it's not appearing in game.

 

Could someone confirm where exactly we need to put our custom images?

seems there's a pretty specific format for that .dds file. Did you get all of it?

 

To add a custom photo to your airplane or tank cockpit you should replace existing default DDS image by another one in:

<game_folder>\data\graphics\planes\<airplane_folder>\textures\custom_photo.dds

or

<game_folder>\data\graphics\vehicles\<_tank_folder>\textures\custom_photo.dds

DDS image should be 1024x1024 in DXT5 ARGB 8bpp with mip-maps

Don't forget to activate it in the plane setup screen (before starting a mission) there is a new third tab next to the paint scheme tab where you can activate it.

Operation features:
- COMBAT, AEROBATIC MANEUVERS AND INSTRUMENT FLYING ARE FORBIDDEN AT FULL FUEL RESERVE! The aircraft is unstable with full rear fuel tank. This limit is lifted when there is no more than 20 gallons (around 75%25 fuel left) in the rear tank. This tank is completely empty at 68%25 total fuel level.
- It is possible to reach dangerously high Mach numbers in a dive: the aircraft starts to shake and the loss of control is possible. Reduce the throttle and gently return to a horizontal flight.
- Engine is equipped with the automatic governor of the manifold pressure that works when the throttle is set to 1/3 position or above.
- Engine has a two stage mechanical supercharger which does not require manual control. It can be switched to the low gear manually.
- The engine is equipped with an automatic fuel mixture control which maintains optimal mixture if the mixture lever is set to RUN (70%25) position. In the case of malfunction of the automatic mixture control the mixture lever should be set to Full Rich (100%25) position. To stop the engine mixture lever should be set to the Cut Off (0%25) position.
- Engine RPM has an automatic governor that controls the propeller pitch to maintain the required RPM.
- The water and oil radiators shutters are operated automatically, but there is a manual mode.
- The aircraft has trimmers for all flight-controls: pitch, roll and yaw.
- Landing flaps have a hydraulic actuator and can be extended to 10°, 20°, 30°, 40° or 50°.
- Each tank has a dedicated fuel level indicator: wing tank inidicators are located on the cockpit floor and the rear tank indicator is behind the pilot seat on the left.
- The tail wheel rotates freely, but moving the control stick back locks it so it rotates by the pedals input.
- The aircraft has independent left and right hydraulic wheel brake controls. To apply either brake push the upper part of the rudder pedal.
- The aircraft is equipped with a parking brake system.
- The signal lamp lights up when the landing gear is up and the throttle is in the backward position or when the landing gear is down, but the throttle is in the forward position.
- Airplane is equipped with a siren that warns a pilot if the throttle is set to low position with landing gear retracted.
- It is impossible to open the canopy at high speeds because of the ram air, but there is an emergency jettison handle for bailing out.
- The aircraft is equipped with formation lights.
- The unguided rockets are launched using the electric controller which allows single, pair, triple and salvo (all rockets at 0.1 seconds interval) launch.
- The gyroscopic gunsight automatically calculates required angular deflection while firing at a target. It has 3 modes: fixed reticle, fixed and gyro reticle, gyro reticle. The angular deflection will be calculated correctly only if the target range is set properly. To set the range, adjust the target base first using separate controls and then set the range by adjusting the size of the range-finding reticle to be the same as the target size.'

Length: 10.89 m (35.73 feet)
Wingspan: 15.85 m (52 feet)
Wing surface: 30.4 m² (327 feet²)

Combat debut: 1944

Operation features:
- In addition to the automatic single-stage supercharger, each engine is equipped with the automatic turbo-supercharger.
- The turbo-supercharger is powered by the engine exhaust backpressure and is regulated automatically by the pilot throttle control in the cockpit using the shutters on the exhaust pipes.
- It should be noted that turbocharger RPM changes relatively slowly and not immediately after a control lever adjustment. For instance, during takeoff it's necessary to keep the brakes pressed for several seconds after moving the throttle to takeoff position and begin the run only when the turbocharger RPM increases sufficiently to reach 54 inches of pressure.
- The automatic fuel mixture control maintains optimal mixture if mixture lever is set to Auto Rich (70%25) position. To use automatic mixture leaning to reduce the fuel consumption during flight set the mixture lever to Auto Lean (30%25) position. In a case of malfunction of the automatic mixture control, the mixture lever should be set to Full Rich (move the lever completely forward) position. To stop the engine, set it to the Idle Cut Off (0%25) position.
- The automatic engine governor keeps the set engine RPM by adjusting the propeller pitch using an electric actuator (it is possible to turn it off and control the propeller pitch manually). The propellers can be feathered.
- The aircraft has pitch and yaw flight-control trimmers.
- Landing flaps have a hydraulic actuator and can be extended to any angle up to 40°. There is also a fixed "maneuver" flaps position that can be set by a short flaps button press ("F" by default).
- The aircraft is equipped with hydraulic aileron actuators, making their operation and good roll performance at high speeds possible. The actuators are turned on using a special valve on the left side of the cockpit and require at least 1200 psi pressure in the hydraulic system, so they should be turned off if there is only one engine running. In the sim, they are turned on and off automatically.
- The aircraft has independent left and right hydraulic wheel brake controls. To apply either brake push the upper part of the rudder pedal.
- The aircraft is equipped with a parking brake system.
- The landing gear indicator lamp lights up if the landing gear is neither extended nor retracted. The extension of the nose wheel can also be checked by its reflection in the mirrors on the inner sides of the engine nacelles and by the pressure drop in the hydraulic system during the landing gear operation.
- There are signal lamps warning about the low fuel level in the outer wing tanks (the primary fuel source) and separate fuel indicators for the left and right fuel tank pairs.
- The canopy has an emergency release system for bailouts.
- The windows on the sides of the canopy can be lowered during flight, but this can cause the excessive shaking of the plane.
- The electric bomb controller allows dropping the bombs one by one from the left and right racks or by pairs.
- The unguided rockets are launched using the electric controller which allows single, pair, triple and salvo (all rockets at 0.1 seconds interval) launch. The rocket containers are jettisonable.'

Combat debut: spring 1942

Operation features:
- Engine has no manifold pressure automatic governor. For this reason, manifold pressure not only depends on throttle position, but also from RPM and altitude. This requires additional checking of manifold pressure to not cause engine damage.
- Engine is equipped with an automatic fuel mixture control which maintains optimal mixture if mixture lever is set to Full Rich (100%25) position. To use automatic mixture leaning to reduce fuel consumption during flight it is necessary to set mixture lever to Cruising Lean (50%25) position. To stop the engine mixture lever should be set to the Cut Off (0%25) position.
- Engine RPM has an automatic governor and it is maintained at the required RPM corresponding to the governor control lever position. The governor automatically controls the propeller pitch to maintain the required RPM.
- Oil radiators shutters and engine cowl outlet shutters are manually operated.
- Airplane has trimmers for all flight-controls: pitch, roll and yaw.
- Landing flaps have a hydraulic actuator and they can be extended to any angle up to 45°.
- Airplane has independent left and right hydraulic wheel brake controls. To apply either brake push the upper part of the rudder pedal.
- Airplane is equipped with upper formation lights.
- Engine has a two-stage mechanical supercharger which must be manually switched at 3350 m (11000 ft) altitude.
- The nose gear orients by itself, doesn't have brakes and can't be controlled.
- There are white and red signal lamps in the tail: the white one is lit while bomb doors are open and the red one lights up for 5 seconds when bombs are released.
- Airplane is equipped with a bomb salvo controller. It allows to drop selected bombs in a salvo or drop all bombs in salvo. There is also a controller for a drop delay between each bomb in the salvo."

 

 

And for Spitfire IXs description for new +25lbs mod:

Don't forget to activate it in the plane setup screen (before starting a mission) there is a new third tab next to the paint scheme tab where you can activate it.

Yeah, figured that bit out - just not recognising my file I suppose!:

I tried using the settings mentioned above for the .dds file (1024x1024 in DXT5 ARGB 8bpp with mip-maps) but it's still not playing nice. I will wait for a smart person to write a guide I think 😁
