Here is my submission of a skin I'd like to use in MP for a Sopwith Camel. Thanks to everyone who guided me to this stage. You all know who you are. S~

Took a quick look at your download file package - couple of problems I saw off the bat:

1. There's no skin file - what probably should be the skin file is showing up as a .bmp file screenshot, not a .dds skin file.

2. The file names are wrong - all 3 files need to have the same name (except for the 3-letter file extension, of course), which cannot be longer than 17 characters (in addition to the file extension) and which must start with the correct required prefix (in this case, "SC_") and not have any spaces or unsupported special characters. For example, you could use something like "SC_Intrepide-GE" (with .dds, .jpg and .txt, of course).

3. Inside your .txt file, you have for some reason replaced the second string ("xxxxxxxx") with "Galactic Empire Camel" - you need to leave the "xxxxxxxx" part unchanged, as it is some sort of placeholder 777 uses somehow in connection with the incorporation of the skins into the game.

Also, when you set up future polls, you need to set them up so that users can only choose one option, not 2, and so the poll will run for 14 days - I've fixed both those issues with your first post so you don't need to worry about that for this one, but just keep it in mind for your future submission threads.

Cheers,

Panther

I knew at some stage star wars would find it's way into the game..
As much as I love star wars in it's own context, the skin does nothing for me I'm afraid.

Thanks for the input Panthercules. I admit that in my haste to getting my first skin out, that I negelected to read the rules in depth. I have made the necessary changes and re-posted the link to the skin file.

Trooper: I feel you on your view. Rest assured I have no intention of creating a full-fledged TIE fighter look-alike; the badge is just something I want to use as a personal emblem.

I went ahead and voted "Yes", however; I am not sold on the logo. Maybe, you could do something to alter the logo so it looked much older or just re-image it with your own personal flair. Good luck! ~S~

I will definitely give it a go in future skins. I literally started using graphic software a few weeks ago.

Capt Maxx and Liberator, could you guys give me some input as to how I could tweak the emblem a little to fit the period a bit better? I have indeed been considering it, but couldn't come up with any ideas.
