AD5 4K Skins from the dude

Recommended Posts

Hi, all. For those that aren't aware, the AD5 model has a texturing issue where skins are mapped poorly just behind the cockpit on the upper portion of the fuselage starboard side. It causes a bracket to appear in a second, incorrect position. Skins can be modified to (sort-of) fix this, but the AD5 texture file still shows this bracket in two different locations. I have updated the AD5 template for use if anyone wants to create skins that show this correction, and I am also providing the updated texture file for anyone who would like to view any of the corrected skins properly. See the images below for examples. Cheers!

Note: Install "data" folder and all of its sub-folders into "IL-2 Sturmovik Great Battles" folder. Replace all (don't worry, I included a copy of the original texture file and an extra copy of the fix - just in case an update overwrites it.)

Note: Unfortunately I missed several minor texturing issues, most notably the squiggles and blurry area in and behind the corner of the radiator on the top wing (see image below).

 

I've updated the skins and download links. Replace any previously downloaded Jasta 7 skins if you want the latest fixes. My modified template has been updated with these fixes (along with my Balkenkreuz markings if anyone wants to use them) and can be downloaded from the original post. Cheers!

Dude, I have a question...

Birdman.thumb.jpg.ff2656e2135cb3853d2d25098063e98f.jpg.3bc2e363eacfa20dd8ef488e72475fdb.jpg

 

 This area between the rudder and stabilizer, (as well as the elevator), is there any way to alter the color?  When doing a J5 greentail it's quite noticeable. 

 

  Thanks!

Yes, @J5_Gamecock, but unfortunately that strip is shared with the rudder, so you can match the stabilizer or the rudder (same issue between the elevator and tail plane).  For my J7 skins, they’re both black, but in this example, I felt like wood was the better choice. S!

 

Edit: Actually, the elevator edge uses what's covering the tail plane. The trailing edge of the tail plane is the area in pink, and the rudder & vert. stabilizer shares the yellow strip. Hope this helps!

Hello, all. I've been trying to create the next batch of jasta default skins, but I was not satisfied with the results due to some strange conditions in the Shading and Dirt layers. It left some hard color breaks which are extremely noticeable on lighter colored fuselages and tails. I had to add some dirt to some areas and blend the existing dirt and shading on other areas for more balanced transitions. If anyone would like to use my Shading and Weathering layers, they are included in the AlbatrosD5_Public_Latest2.psd link in the top post. I tried to avoid removing too much shading and grime, but it was necessary in some areas, especially the abundance of "shading" on the top surfaces of the tail plane. Below are images showing the before and after results on a plain white AD5 skin. I've also updated the last round of skins (Factory defaults and Jasta 11) to reflect these changes.

Hopefully most will agree that this in an improvement over the default template so I can get back into trying to crank out a bunch of jasta default skins. S!

Hi, all. My apologies, but I noticed I had the wrong setting clicked on my Shading layer in my updated template. Plus, I think the dirt levels around the tail were lighter than intended, so I was able to increase that without messing up the transitions between surfaces. See the images below for examples of the differences. I've uploaded a new template (AlbatrosD5_Public_Latest3.psd) in the first post and the last round of skins (Factory defaults and Jasta 11 defaults) have also been updated. S!
