MkVIII and Cobra are mine.

MkVIII, just need to save each one as an individual file.
Cobra needs numbers.

20th should be fine.

He111 & JU87-B DL link (extract to main '46 folder)

Will fettle these up a bit and add Regia 111's and LW 87's later in week (probably an "Oleg week" , but still). Any non-Axis or non HE pilots get your order in now.

Thanks for the direct link Sneaky. However, what I would like to do (like before) is to create single zip file for all the skins, having them extract to the appropriate sub-folders automatically of course.

Additionally, I intend to use a similar naming convention to make it easy for folks to know which skins to use during the sessions, and afterwards (if they wish) an easy way to delete them when the campaign is over.

FYI - For those who want to save me some time, prior to releasing to me consider the following naming conventions:

Troina.bmp (non-personalized custom skin)
Troina8.bmp, Troina23.bmp, Troina34.bmp, etc...

Obviously you will need to place all the skins in separate folders using the plane type's name. I will sort it out from there. I will upload the master (zip) file to Snoop's server. Maybe Moe you can provide a mirror just to give folks an alternate location?

If all the skins are done by this Wednesday, should have the skin pack available by this weekend.

Questions, concerns, suggestions?

TS!

It's always pleasant to see pretty aircraft in my sights. ;)

No problem on the mirror Tactical.

Naming comvention:

I'm using;

MosquitoVI_HEmed_84_Fcn
MC-202VII_HEmed_nocode_Fcn
FW-190A5_HEmed_blank_Fcn
P-38J_HEmed_SDA_Fcn

etc.

~~~

!?!

throw them away after?!?

but they'll be worth something in ten to fifty years!

especially if you keep them in their original packaging.

PS: Snaphoo is temporarily out of touch; that imaginary concept of real life or something. I think he's doing the P-40M and the other 109.

If time runs out, we can use the first 109 skin for the second no prob. Who would like to do the P-40M as a rush job?

Think this is a Jesters template, quick re-colour.

Snee,

If you have the time, go ahead with that. Make sure you give the artist all the credit he deserves somewhere on the skin. Protocol calls for contacting the artist for permission.

Give yourself appropriate credit too for any additions, improvements, embellishments, etc.

The request for permission can occur concurrently with the repaint and issue.

I could update an OLD P-40M template for HE, but it would take a day or two plus maybe a few more days for wear details.

Let us know it you want to do it. See Snaphoo's pics on page #1 of this thread IF you need painting ideas.

Thanks,


Falcon


PS: JaVA_Serval has a nice template too.

MkVIII's and 39's are done. I could work on the 40, all I have to do is add names and numbers. Hard to add the star and bar accurately, but mine are on there.

Okay, SOMEBODY say, "I'll do it!",

or we can have three P-40's,

or we can have a P-40 beauty contest in 24 hours?

Like my daughters say ... "whatEVER!"

dawg, I hate that

;)
