Folks!

First of all let me apologise for deleting the 'Gen's BOS skin' thread and all your postings. The reason for this is that all the skins I've created so far are obsolete now since I've shifted from 2048px by 2048px to 4096px by 4096px skin templates.

Due to this I'd like to present you a couple of skins I've worked on until now. In the next future I'm going to present you my skin ideas for the FIS here in the very first posting of this thread.

Order taken, Vin. :)

Do you mind to wait a bit until I will have created skins for the different versions of the Pe-2s, the La-5 and LaGG-3? This would complete list of all aircraft I've done skins so far ...

Frank ;)

You have been busy. These look great.

Haven’t used any non standard skins in BoX yet, how does that work?

Number 42, with my Nelliphant nose art if you can?

Thank you, Neill! :D

If you like to use a custom skin you need ...
  • to have one or more in your "X:\IL-2 Sturmovik Great Battles\data\graphics\skins\XX" folder.
  • to choose it in the weapon screen in IL-2 BoX as followed:

I put you onto my list, Neill. As soon I'm done with the Pe-2s (35&87), the La-5FN and the LaGG-3 I'm going to work down this list ...
  • Blue2
  • Bluebell aka Ardmore
  • Nellip
Hang in there, Neill! ;)

You're welcome, Vin! :D

A second bundle of FIS skins has been released today. The aluminium version of the P-40E-1 looks a bit mat though - I still need to fiddle with it. Yet I hope you'll like the rest of them ...

Frank, is it a typo for the la5-fn, as it downloads as the la5s8?

Thank you for the hint, Vin! Corrected it. :D

Folks,

the third and last bundle of FIS skins has been released today. There are still some skins need to be done due to missing aircraft (La-5FN series 2, U-2VS) or missing interest yet (e.g. Spitfire Mk. IXe).

Hope you like them too ...

Sorry, Dan. That's my fault. :shock: :( Just those who actually wanted to get those skins are able to get to the download site. :cry:

Would you like to get those skins, too? :-k
