I've made a few RAAF ones that I used with the 1.03 demo, "the bee's knees" is the first thing that comes to mind.

Without breaking any rules, can you send me the old file that you used as a template...just for skinning practice ( and maybe a screenie of your work What a Face ), my original was lost with a fried harddrive and Im waiting to see if they release a new "beta". I'm really new at it but have always wanted to give her a whirl, I figure if I start now i might get one done by the time the Marines are flying F35s. What type of file is it and is it similiar to skinning in say IL-2. Thanks Mud

Nice. The folder where the pics to edit are in this directory (for me) C:\Program Files (x86)\Seven-G\data\aircraft . I cleared the template and put my own pics over it, its a bit messy. Ideally we need a proper blank template, mine isn't blank anymore anyway Laughing . This is the scheme I did, RAAF 3 Squadron:

OK. I have done a little work on skins, and I am able to change it w/o the game crashing lol. Below are 4 pics of the VFA-195 "DAMBUSTERS".









Now I want to test to see if the mod enabler that we use for JF-18 will work for this game with the same amount of ease.

OK, the JSGME mod enabler works great. So you are able to keep the integrity of the files in the demo alone, and just click on the skin you want to fly as. You can have multiple skins available to apply. However, you can only activate one at a time. This is good for those who like to change their "colors" often or for the MP community, you can have your squadron's markings.

With the dev's permission, I am willing to make skins for the group here. Just list your F/A-18C/D squad markings you would like to have done and I will post the zip file here once I have it completed. Just be sure to read the readme file, for I won't be held responsible if your putter crashes. pirat

After my initial tests, I've just been working on a marking template that I can just pull a specific sqn marking from and "stamp" onto the stock Hornet skin whenever I desire (for the time being). Unfinished (and one of them is a RAAF Super Hornet tail marking, just for kicks Wink ).



I'm having a problem with screenies at the moment so that's it for now.

So to do the skins you just have to repaint those in the aircrafts folder? Right now with the F18 and MiG21 skin folders there? That's it?

I know I saw one with a CF18 skin on it but I think I'll ramp Photoshop up and work one up. Do you game guys have a template with the panel lines available?

I haven't looked into it that thoroughly so this probably isn't the easiest way, but I just used a simple paint program to remove the old markings so that I had the hornet skin with the joins and so on. Then I chucked some of my own marks over the top. If I remember rightly, you have to compress your markings horizontally a bit first because the whole thing is squashed a bit.

30 mins of color replacing and a maple leaf or two. I will be interesting to see the next beta. Interesting the layout of the model in jpgs. I see the MiG21 is using BMPs.

LEX? BTY admins I can not figure out why the vfa 123 is showing up on the eadge of the wing. I looked every where on the image files to remove it but I can not seem to find it.
