After four days of trial and error, and learning about the features of Photoshop, I submit my second REAL skin. I call it the ugly duckling, Reason being, she isnt pretty, but I have fallen in love with it. : ). Hopefully this one is a lot more appealing than the monstrosity that was the Nieuport 11 :lol:

Sorry to disappoint you, but your file package needs some changes.

All three files have to have the same name, but skip the "Personal_aircraft_of" for brevity's sake.
For example:
ad3_s27_dw.jpg (for the thumbnail; works best in all lower-case)
AD3_S27_DW.txt (for the textfile - Also remember to edit the text file to reflect the new file name!)
AD3_S27_DW.dds

Plus, your .zip file will get deleted if you directly upload it to the forum. Please use an external file host (like mediafire) or a cloud storage.

Otherwise, you have improved quite a bit.

Not fixed. The three filenames should be the same. I've given you an exact example before.

Plus, there are some typos in the .txt file (like .ddss instead of .dds).

For example:
ad3_s27_dw.jpg (for the thumbnail; works best in all lower-case)
AD3_S27_DW.txt (for the textfile - Also remember to edit the text file to reflect the new file name!)
AD3_S27_DW.dds

Almost done; only in the .txt file you need to update the file names:

"graphics\Skins\AlbatrosD3\AD3_S27_DressedWings.dds" "xxxxxxxx" "z Aircraft of DressedWings" "Fictional skin for use by DressedWings"

would be

"graphics\Skins\AlbatrosD3\AD3_S27_DW.dds" "xxxxxxxx" "z Aircraft of DressedWings" "Fictional skin for use by DressedWings"

for example.

Why bold? I must have overlooked it, my mistake.

DW, I checked the file you've sent me, and it looks like 100% functioning to me.
I'm sorry but I didn't check the skin itself.

Nope. Had a concert. And in the art exhibition after that I was supposed to play too. But some co**su**ing ****head decided to ignore the schedule and didn't let me. One week of practising real hard every day with some friends and money for a new set of Ukulele strings gone to waste.

Sorry for the rant, voted yes.

A 'yes' from me as well though I would change the font on "Für den Kaiser" to something a bit more correct for the period.
