Tac,

If you can wait until tomorrow evening to do your magic, I can get a second 109 skin done.

Skins are looking great guys.

Falcon, your Italian fighter zips seem to be missing their .7z surnames.

Worth the wait Falcon. Now that we managed to wrestle Noter's skins out of the lad's hands ;) , I will probably get the skins packaged over the weekend. I would rather make sure we do it right the first time than run into updates during the campaign.

Yeah, I saw that. They open okay for you though, don't they? I checked and they do for me. Might be because I have a wee '.' in the name???

Heck, I've always had trouble wih Italian names ... must be from me wiff's side of the family.

If you have any trouble, dicami.

Tac, cool. I'll get 'em done today. Sneaky should have his done soon too.

Thanks,

Should rant at UbiZoo about this!

Just spent the afternoon extracting detail from the Ju87D-5 Void, and guess what ? It's an 87B Void and doesnt cover the full wing span of the D5. Now the D-3 would do , sort of but thats got a B Void in the folder too.

And yes I've checked the backup installs etc. and all the voids are the same even though the mats are different.

Looks as though the game gets round it by having yellow wingtips on the default skin.

I looked at the D voids and the B void and the only dif's I saw were some hatches and the wing root detail. Are you saying that all the voids/skins are too small for the D-5 model's wing tips?

I did some Ju-87 skins years ago, so I can't help now, but I'll go check it out later if you need any company. Can you flumangulate the skin to make it work good enough?

The skins I saw on Friday were top notch.

However, was I the only one who had an issue with the markings?

It seems that in the dogfight server you cannot disable the in-game markings and all of the skins carry roundels so I ended up with double markings on my Spitfire.

Or am I doing something wrong?

Not sure if my markings worked properly. Anyone make some vids/photos? Anyway I chose "None" for nationality and I assume it worked (national markings were of course painted on the custom skins).

Ah so I was doing something wrong. I should have chosen "None" as my airforce?
