As a result of some great discussion in this thread: http://riseofflight....ers#entry480941 , I have decided to share some custom scarf and streamer packages I'm putting together for my own use.

The first two of these "Panther Packs" are now ready, and are described and linked to below. Others will be added to this post as they become available. As noted in the thread mentioned above, you will need to be running RoF in "Mods ON" mode, and you will need to have already purchased the personalization packs with the stock streamers/scarves in order to use these packs.

These packs are JSGME-ready - just unzip them into your "MODS" folder and use JSGME to activate and deactivate them as desired. Also, since each pack uses several of the same files, it is highly recommended that you use JSGME to only have one pack installed/activated at any one time.

1. Central Powers Scarves and Streamers: http://www.mediafire...s_for_JSGME.zip

[Updated - Weathered/tattered version available herehttp://www.mediafire...-_Weathered.zip]

From the included Readme file:

This mod adds Panther's Central Powers pack, including:

Scarves and Streamers:
Imperial German Colors
Bavarian diamonds
Austria-Hungary k.u.k colors

Streamers only:

Here is a screenshot to whet your appetite:

5. Panther's Whimsical Pack #1: http://www.mediafire...-_weathered.zip

HISTORICAL PURIST ALERT !! This one is pure fantasy - I was just having some fun with these, so if you're just looking for semi-historically plausible ones, you can skip this one. But I hope some of you might enjoy them icon_e_smile.gif

This mod adds Panther's Whimsical Pack #1, including:

Scarves and Streamers:

Here are a couple of screenshots, complete with "backstory", to whet your appetite:

The Great Waldo Pepper:
Waldo Pepper flew for a while with my fictional "Cat-in-the-Ring" Squadron, before becoming known throughout the world as a famous barnstormer by virtue of the movie later made about his life. What may not be as well known about Waldo was that he dropped out of Harvard University (note the scarf below) to join the flying service, and that he later became famous again as the subject of the hit children's book series "Where's Waldo" (note the streamer below):
RoF-scarfandstreamerWhimsicalpack1-1.jpg



2nd Lt. John ("Jack") Asphalt:
Jack Asphalt also flew with the "Cat-in-the-Ring" Squadron, having joined the flying service just after graduation with a degree in civil engineering from the Georgia School of Technology (now known as the Georgia Institute of Technology, or GA Tech, whose mascot is the Yellow Jacket - hence the scarf below). After the war, Jack became known as an innovator in developing substances for the paving of roads, and also for inventing the standard method of painting markings for highway lanes (which he based upon a design he had created for his flight-leader streamer while serving with the "Cat-in-the-Ring" Squadron, as noted below):
RoF-scarfandstreamerWhimsicalpack1-2.jpg


6. Panther's Weathered Stock Scarves and Streamers: http://www.mediafire...s_for_JSGME.zip

From the included Readme file:

This mod adds Panther's Weathered Stock Scarves and Streamers Pack - just the standard, stock set of scarves and streamers which have been weathered and tattered.

Here is a screenshot to whet your appetite - this is primarily for Fifi, who was asking for a tweaked red streamer in an earlier post, but hopefully some others may also enjoy them:

RoF-scarfandstreamerWeatheredStockpack.j


7. Panther's Central Powers Pack #2 (weathered and tattered)(updated 15 NOV 2012 to shorten readme file): http://www.mediafire..._JSGME-ver2.zip

Bulgaria 3-Color Bars
Germany 3-Color Bars

Streamers only:
Austria-Hungary 2-Color Bars
Black/White Bars
Saxony 2-Color Bars
Wurttemberg 2-Color Bars



Here is a screenshot of one of the ones requested by Elephant in a post below, to whet your appetite:

RoF-scarfandstreamerCentralpack2-1.jpg




That's probably the last Panther Pack for a while - got some skin polls to process and testing to do. Feel free to suggest some other possibilities in the thread below, though, and maybe I can do some more in a few days.

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy these icon_e_smile.gif

I don't own them (and probably never will), but I think the allied one need some weathering, they're a little bit tooo "flashy", comparing with Central ones.

Thanks for the suggestion - that may just be a function of the sunlight and screenshot angle being different, but I'll check it out. I was trying to lighten up the preview pictures on the hangar menu screens and it may have had some unforeseen effect on the in-game look.

This is pretty cool, and I agree if you weather them a bit more they'd probably look better.

Pretty good. But they do need to match the weather, sheen and such of the planes finish. To bad they cannot be tattered and torn too….(?)

LOL - unfortunately (or maybe fortunately ?) there's only so much I can do with the basic shape of the streamer model in the game, and I don't think it will "stretch" to handle underwear and stockings. :lol:

In theory, you could, BUT, both sides of the streamers use the same portion of the banner.dds file, so if you do a streamer with words they will be OK on one side but will be backwards on the other side, so it would look a bit weird.

No, i like very much your tattered edge :)
In fact, when they released the streamers, i found them too squared and mainly too bright/shiny.
You just rework them perfectly!

(i just need a weathered and tattered red one!)

Well, the blue is British Roundel blue, rather than French blue. But yes, they are similar. That's one reason I also included a horizontal stripe version, if you want one that looks more different. I tried just using a British flag, but didn't really like the way it looked all stretched out like that, so I was kinda grasping for ideas on this one :)

Can we have one of those too for the Central side, please?

Also two coloured ones (black and white) were popular too…

The weathered ones look fantastic!
Thanks Panther!

LOL - unfortunately (or maybe fortunately ?) there's only so much I can do with the basic shape of the streamer model in the game, and I don't think it will "stretch" to handle underwear and stockings. :lol:

I like the sound of the idea, but with respect, I don't think too much thought went into it. Apart from the increased drag from a pair of bloomers and associated performance loss, it would be an absolutely hideous look. No, it's better that sort of thing be undertaken behind the Adjutant's office and any trophies acquired firmly secured in a lockable private compartment.

Stockings may be a different matter being finer material and generally less bulky however I don't think they should be pursued either (imho) but I have to say Panther you've done an excellent job on the standard streamers! :S!:
