I'm putting my personal skin up for a vote in the hopes that I can actually get to use it online! Its the basic Jasta 2 color scheme of black and white tail (though I intentionally flipped the colors on the stabilizers so its opposite on top and bottom- I just thought it looked cool) with a nose marking that is a combination of Erich Hartmann's Bf-109G 'Karaya 1' and the squadron 'feather' markings of the 17th Pursuit Squadron's Curtiss Hawks in the 1930's. The red-white-black bands on the fuselage and wings are what I've chosen as my personal identification marking (to be discernable at a distance in a no-icon arena, as the black nose doesn't stand out very well) and the yellow shield crest on the fuselage sides is the crest of my Great-Grandfathers hometown, Langen, Hessen. His father (my Great-Great-Grandfather, obviously) served in the German Army in WWI. The markings are applied over a standard lozenge pattern fabric- nothing fancy there.

And a front-quarter shot-

I can provide shots from other angles if desired/required.

I hope it can get included, I've put a lot of work into my baby!

Just noted a couple of things about your submission that need attention:

1. You need to set the poll to run 14 days (I've edited your post to do that for you this time - you just need to change the "0" to "14" in a box near the bottom of the post creation/editing screen).

2. Instead of linking to the .dds file itself, you need to create a .zip file containing all 3 required files (the .dds skin file, the .jpg 300x100 pixel preview picture, and the .txt file with the necessary info and localization sections). Please see the instructions posted here: The List of Requirements for Approved Aircraft Paint Schemes . Also, if you don't want to mess with getting translations, you can use the pre-translated template for the .txt file found in the second post of this thread: Clarified Naming Guidelines for Submitted "For Fun" Skins .

If you have any questions, feel free to PM me and I'll try to help.

Sorry, thought I followed the guidelines. Must have missed or misread a few things. I'll get it right the next time (if I submit another one).

Though I'd like to say I prefer the way you guys do it here to the way they do the skin submission and approval over at Aces High- I've e-mailed submissions there that can take a year or more to get reviewed and another year to get added. Your system is both simpler and a heck of a lot faster!

I have a feeling you will submit other ones - this skinning stuff can be very addictive, as I've found out :lol:

The guidelines/requirements can seem pretty daunting at first, but it becomes pretty easy once you get the hang of it. Just update your first post with the corrections once you get them ready. And feel free to PM me with amy specific questions you might have, and I'll be happy to help you.

I noticed that you have not yet updated your download file to meet the new requirements - please see here: NEW List of Requirements for Approved Aircraft Paint Schemes . I have extended your poll to give you more time to update your download file to meet the new requirements. Please do so before your poll closes (or, if it's going to take you more time than that, please edit your first post to extend the poll by a few days to give yourself more time).

Also, please note in your first post when you have updated the download file.

Thanks,

Panther

Just a reminder, as this one is getting a little long in the tooth. I've also PM'd you as to getting this one corrected for submission. It looks like you spent a fair amount of time on this one - would be a shame not to wrap it up and get it into the game. Please let me know if you're going to finish it up or if you want me to close it out.

Cheers,

Panther

Looks like interest has been lost in this one, so I'm closing it out - if you want to fix this one just send me a PM and I'll open it back up.

Thread locked.
