:shock:

That's quite…yellow. I would turn down the saturation to make it look less like it was colored in with a Sharpie highlighter.

Also, I am not sure if it is your graphical settings or not, but it looks very "un-textured." (Sorry, I don't skin so I don't know the lingo). :P

Hahaha :lol: , with this yellow you would be the first to shot at, in multi-player you can not miss with these sparkling colour. Please include a download link, bit difficult to do a judgement now. :geek:

Yes - you need to create a .zip file with all 3 required files (the skin .dds file itself, the 300x100 .jpg preview picture and the .txt file), upload it somewhere (e.g., MediaFire or another free upload site) and provide a download link in your first post.

Please check here for the file submission requirements: NEW List of Requirements for Approved Aircraft Paint Schemes

Also, please check the second post here for the pre-translated template .txt file so you won't have to bother with getting all the translations required (and it will make it easier for me to process as well): Clarified Naming Guidelines for "Fun" Skins - UPDATED !

Also, for future reference the polls should be set up to run for 14 days (I have already adjusted yours in this case, so just keep it in mind for future submissions).

Good luck - if you have any questions, please let me know and I'll be happy to help.

Cheers,

Panther

Oh, the "good" servers- Okay,
so you have to find a way that everybody likes it ;)
Perhaps you can find an alternative "yellow citrus" paint- but
a little bit more realistic.
Just try it!

Please NOTE - you need to upload the required 3 files in a standard .zip format - NOT as an executable. And the .zip file should just include the 3 files themselves - no sub directory structure.

It's fine if you want to make the executable file available to users who may be willing to download one (many folks will not want to do so, but that's up to them), but for the actual submission you need to just have the .zip file link posted in your first post of this thread.

Sorry, don't vote till you'll adjust the yellow color, even for a fun skin.
Ask how to tune it down cause in my opinion it's not even nice the way it is.
Nothing against you, but i'm sure you can do a lot better.
The yellow baron needs a real yellow!
At least a yellow like that:

PS and RoF takes a while to learn. You generally need to do skins much darker in PS for them to turn out so they look like they "belong" in RoF.

I voted yes! That colour would make you an easy target to ID from any distance. I reckon the flying banana would be a better title though. hehehe.

i'm not gonna change it. it's a SPOOF. but why wouldn't you guys want it? it would be fun to have a couple unique and original skins.

PS: i used the template, the riveting and shading is still there.

I like my eyes, no need to change that.


Though, if it does make it in the game in this form, I will just delete it. Since you however asked everyones (including my) oppinion, I will call it how I see it.


(btw, one of my aircraft is all yellow as well - though not quite as flourescent. So its not that I don't like the joke ;)

If you need/want any help with making skins, feel free to PM me.)

Please pick yes.

Well, that is one florescent yellow! I would love to fight you in a night mission ;)
If you bring the saturation of the yellow down to a duller color the skin would be perfect.

Don't give up and keep at it,

Still think that it should be a more dull shade of yellow, spoof or not. It is so bright and neon colored, it almost looks lime green. I rarely do this but since you don't plan on changing it, I have to vote no. Probably 100x better than I could do, but just not what I would like to have in ROF. :|

Anyways, hope to see you in the skies YB! Yellow Bristol or not!

Here's the thing;

If you don't tone it down,

It will not make it into the game.

This isn't an insult. It will be rejected, because the yellow is way too bright.


Try for about this shade of yellow:

You might start out with D18000. It looks orange but in the game looks a little more like "chrome yellow" or "school bus yellow".

Most likely you'd need to mess with it a bit to get it looking right in game. I found that just "yellow" is very dull and sort of BLAH when Bbobenheimer suggested the above code. It gives a bright yellowish tone without being to green or florescent.

Anyway, it's a good place to start. Hope this helps.

Your colors will "change" 3 times… Photo shop, the RoF viewer, and in game, will all look a little different ;)

I toned it down, but now there's a strange orange glow (you can see it well in full size image). doesn't change much at a lower altitude, and the damage model doesn't change it.

Better! You might want to tone the color (the darkness, not the hue) a bit more so you get rid of that glow.

Ok, so on the color picker, you can move the little circle up-down + left-right. The further you move it down, the darker the color will be; likewise, up means lighter. Left and right change the hue, or color. I would recommend changing the hue to more of a deeper yellow, and making it a bit darker. Just make sure the picker is in the bottom 1/2-1/4 of the square.

Have a look at the Tiger Moth yellow, that works well and no one will be able argue with that, as has been said, at the moment it's the flying highlighter…
