Here is my personal skin for the Newport 17. Your votes are appreciated. If you feel the need to vote no, please to the courtesy of telling me why so I know what to fix.

Edit: Please check out my other skins. I have them up for all allied planes now except the two seaters (havent gotten around to it yet).

Edit 2.0: Extending the poll in order to go through this skin and double check the brightness.

Same comment as on your N11 skin about the probably too-bright white/light areas - you probably should double-check this one as well.

All skins look bad on the silly graphics settings required for these shots!

I voted YES!

You just have to test your skin under those graphics settings to make sure they're OK per the new standards - you do NOT have to use those settings for the screenshots you post in these threads, if you don't want to.

Two questions.

1) why is the default skin template too bright then (the only thing I changed was the addition of the stripes and rose)?

2) how do I tone it down without it going grey or silver?

2) how do I tone it down without it going grey or silver?

Not sure why it's like that, but it has been known since the template was released that it was too light/bright (if you just create a skin from the default template without making any changes, and compare it to one of the default N17 skins in the game, you will easily see how much brighter/lighter the template skin is compared to the default one).

I don't really understand your comment/question about how to tone it down "without it going grey or silver" - it's supposed to be silver/grey. Generally, just try reducing the brightness and saturation settings and maybe try adding a darker grey/silver looking overlay as an extra layer on top that you can play around with opacity on till you get something that looks right to you and roughly close to some of the other N17 skins in game, and you should be fine.
You may also want to play around with darkening the weathering layers - IIRC, there's one in particular in the N17 template that adds a light grey overtone that tends to make things even brighter instead of dirtier/darker unless you tone it down as well (you'll have to experiment a little to find the exact layer I'm talking about, and I've found it's best to create a duplicate layer and make the experimental changes to that new layer, leaving the original layer alone and simply turning it off (hiding it), so if you mess up and don't like the results you can always go back to the undisturbed default layer).

Also, even though you are supposed to test your skin with those new video settings (bloom, HDR etc.), it would probably help to post a screenshot taken under more "normal"/pleasing settings (e.g., bloom and HDR off) - that's the way a lot of people (myself included) seem to actually fly in RoF and most of the screenshots of prior skins are taken that way, so it will be easier for people to compare your skin in that kind of screenshot to the ones they've seen of other skins and get a better idea if the skin is really too bright or if it's just the bloom/HDR settings making your screenshots look that way.

Hi Baron…well that blows my screen away……brightness is a killer as you already know..

Are those screen shots still the ones you wish to us ?

I did not test them in the game, but I do like the design. On the HP it is ugly, but on the N11 & 17 it is good.

Yep I’m an 2009 Rof pre-order buyer and one of the few that did buy the Sikorsky game.

Poll concluded; brightness problem fixed (I think); thread locked.
