First post updated with info and a link to the latest Panther Pack - Panther's Weathered Stock Pack. 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.

OoooH! Thanks a lot, Panther! :P
I have now to fly mods on! lol

EDIT: tried it, and they look perfect to me. Great job!
Your color is tuned to match ROF visuals standart imo.
Not so flashy as stock ones in regard of ROF skins.
I wish one day they could be implemented mods off.

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!

:S!:


Sure - 1st post updated to include info and link for latest (and probably last one for a while) Panther Pack - Panther's Central Powers Pack #2 - which includes both of the ones requested above.

Enjoy!

I have the engine textures mod in JSGME enabled and it tells me to not install this streamers mod,unless I disable the engine mod!
Can both be safely used at the same time?

Thanks. :S!:

Hmmm - I don't have the engine textures mod in my current installation, so I'll have to get it and take a look. Usually JSGME tells you which files might be conflicting - do you recall which one(s) it said were the problem for you? I can't imagine that the actually-modified files in these would also be used/modified by the engine textures mod, so maybe it's just a folder-related message, which is usually not a problem, but I'll check it out in a bit.

I just D/L'ed and installed the engine skin mod, and tested it with several of my Panther Packs scarves and streamers mods - JSGME did not report any conflicts or problems, and from inspecting the contents of the engine skins mod I would not expect there to be any. Exactly what was JSGME telling you about a conflict?

I'm not finding a conflict.. I have both mods installed and have had no problems, just overwrite and play.
This is the message:

OK - that sort of folder-related message is not a problem. Both mods put files in the same folder (but not the same files), and both will try to create that folder if it isn't already there, so that message is just telling you that the engine mod (installed first) has already created a folder that the streamer mod you're installing after that is also going to use. There shouldn't be any problem using the two mods together.

Looks like you're using an older version of JSGME - I'm running JSGME v.2.6.0.157, and I guess by that version JoneSoft had decided that message wasn't really necessary and eliminated it, as I do not get any message when I install both these mods with my version.

Hi
Thank you for clarifying. :)

Could you please provide a link to your JSGME version?

Sure - I can't remember where I found it (probably in some post somewhere on the SH3 or IL-2 forums), as the JoneSoft site itself seems to be gone, so I just uploaded it to MediaFire, here:

http://www.mediafire...rsion_2.6.0.zip

I didn't have any problems with the installation or the use of this version since installing it, but like everything else you would be well advised to backup your stuff just in case, and this is provided "AS IS" as I had nothing to do with its development.

First post updated with slightly revised version of the last pack - Central Powers #2 - I reliazed the included readme file was too long and did not display in full when moused over in JSGME, so I made the readme shorter and updated the D/L file and link in the first post.

Scarves/Streamers are unchanged - just changed the readme file so you could see all the ones that are included before you decide to activate it.

I an still a new pilot to this game and digging through these forums I have found many good tasty items, mod's and other tidbits that are not on the official page yet very note worthy and fun. I wish there were a list of all the cool add on's, missions and other immersive stuff some place so I could make a mad grab.
Oh and I look forward to using these skins Panthercules.

Oh, another question: is a mod modifying the color of the flares a possibility? It could be fun to fire for example blue flare.

Good question - I've purchased both packs, so I can't test it with just the first one at this point. I suspect that part of these will work if you've only bought the first pack (the ones where I changed the scarves or the basic set of streamer files), but other parts won't work, where I changed the extra set of streamer files (i.e., some of the streamers I did won't be visible - I don't think it'll break anything about the game, I think the modded extra files probably just won't be displayed/usable if you haven't purchased the second pack).

These scarf/streamer mod packs could probably be broken apart and re-jiggered just to affect the basic set of streamer files, so they could be used if you only have the first personalization pack, but I'd recommend that people get the second pack anyway (so they can fly with the proper type of pistol for their pilot's country).

Nothing quite spoils the immersion like having to whip out an American Colt M1911 pistol to shoot yourself while falling from the sky in your burning Albatros :D

Turns out these work OK with having purchased only the first personal pack….. the bottom 4 streamers/scarves in your banner.dds file are available and work well, and no game problems exist. So I imagine that if someone had only the second personal pack, the top 4 streamers/scarves would be useable and not the bottom 4.

Thanks for these. I'll be buying the second personal pack at the next big sale. Heaven forbid I should have to end it all with the wrong type of pistol! ;)

So if I understand this correctly, I must have at least purchased the first streamer pack for these to work?  Are they still for sale or am I out of luck?

If I understood the latest announcements from the devs correctly, everybody has been given the personalization packs (which include the scarves and streamers) for free at this point, so I don't think you need to buy them at all now:

 

To celebrate the launch of the new site and store we’re sending personalization packs as gifts to everyone. These are not just fancy attributes but an essential part of WWI combat aviation history as well, and we believe we should share them with the community more widely than just by selling these items.  (from this post: http://riseofflight....bsite-launched/  )

I think so, but I haven't tested that yet.  I'm pretty sure that if the game doesn't see those modified scarf files then it will just use the stock scarves, but it's been so long since I messed with them I'd have to do some testing to confirm that.

 

[EDIT - no, it's more complicated than that - there is an overlap between the scarves and the first set of streamers, so if you want stock scarves with custom/modified streamers you need to leave the stock streamers alone and only use the checkered streamer slots for your modified/custom streamers.  So just removing my scarf files doesn't do the job.

Oh my God... Panthercules my good man this is absolutely inspired, thank you!!!! Can't thank you enough for doing this! But wait a minute my dear sir, I have a humble request... why not have George Peppard's scarf from the Blue Max?? If I remember right it was black silk with gold spots (I could be wrong?) or if not perhaps I could have a try at editing the dds file myself but I think you say above it's a little more complicated than just a simple edit so maybe not!? If I could have it, I would choose to have the option of a black silk scarf with gold spots, a dark blue silk one with white spots, and then for the entente side perhaps an orange and black striped college style one or maybe even Tom Baker's Doctor Who scarf but... oh wait, I'm getting carried away I'll stop now..! No, Bruno Stachel's black/gold silk scarf would be awesome on its own :) Could you do it??

I was just reading Osprey's Albatros Aces book, musing over photo of Boelcke's plane with streamers in German tri-colour, and how we need these in RoF... then this. Am I late to say we need these in mods off mode?

Well, problem is that unless the devs were willing to expand/tweak the game code to include/recognize more streamer options, the only way to get any of these new ones in mods off mode would be to replace some of the existing ones.  And, the only ones you can change without also affecting the scarves are the 4 checkered streamers, which means you'd have to figure out which 4 new ones to use.  Even if you wanted to use, say, the tri-colored bar version for different countries, you wouldn't be able to get one for all the countries, so you'd have to figure out which ones to leave out. The obvious choices perhaps would be ones for Germany, France, Britain and Russia (I'd say USA, but I suspect that by the time you do the other 3 red/white/blue country combos you'll have the USA covered in there somewhere anyway). 

 

I don't know if people are so enamored of the checkered ones that they'd complain about them being replaced by new tri-color ones - probably a no-win situation for the devs given how hard it is to please people around here. But then again, that's why it's so nice to have a mods on mode so we can use things like this.  (What would be really nice is if they could tweak the mods on/mods off mode logic so changes to these files wouldn't be treated as "mods" and could be used with either mode, but I have no idea how hard that would be or whether there is anything else in these files that would make that a bad idea from a cheating perspective or something.)

I'll try to remember to take a look at this later tonight when I get back from work.  It's been a while since I messed with these, so I'll have to come back up the learning curve a bit, but it doesn't sound like it should be too hard to do.  Is there a particular color scarf/streamer you don't like? (I'll have to replace one of the 5 normal scarf/streamer pairs with this new one, and it's best not to use the blue one since I think that's what the AI flight leaders use, and most people probably would still like to be able to use the white scarf, so maybe one of the other 3 colors would be the best candidate).

Thanks for replying so quick! No rush or anything take your time man! Hm well, the solid green or maybe the yellow scarf/streamer would be a nice exchange for our Bruno Stachel silk special edition? :) Oh, no, you mean over one you already edited don't you? Well, then probably the Italian looking one? Or the green and white... hm no, that works for the Saxe Coberg-Gotha banner, keep that one! You choose :)

 

Possibly at some point in the future it would of course be good to have a tutorial for editing our own, same as we have with the aircraft skins, not taking away any of the glory from yourself though sir! Still, I'm guessing you would need to take the white scarf and use it as a sort of template for the texture layer in Photoshop and cut and paste it over the right area once you have your edited design + alpha layer for the weathering rips and holes, yes? You know that now you've let this out of the bag, there might be some Arsenal, Chelsea or Liverpool scarf reqs now (and Harrow, Eaton...) Again, brilliant catch finding these textures, genius!! Can't believe I missed this before. S!

Well, since I've already done some USA college/team scarves I guess it would be only fair to see some of those you mentioned start showing up, too - since these are only for mods off I guess we won't have to worry about seeing an uptick in football hooliganism in the RoF skies as a result :)

 

I was really referring to which of the stock scarf/streamer colors you would want replaced, as I planned to just do another little mod package for your Bruno Stachel scarf request, rather than alter one of my previous packs.
