Posted 26 February 2014 - 05:06

I've been creating personal skins for other Jastas based on my personal skins for Jasta 7. I was able to create swatches that can easily be overlaid with existing squadron default skins for quick creation of personal skins for use with the PWCG personal skin feature. Because my skins were designed for use with black fuselages, I was worried they wouldn't look good on lighter skinned aircraft. I brightened them up slightly and cleaned off some of the grey edging found on my original skins, and the results seem good enough. I'm sure not all of them will work for every Jasta, but with 32 different designs to chose from, I'm sure we can find 8 to 10 that will work for most squadrons.

Attached File  PWCG Preview.jpg   1.5MB   3 downloads

 

Attached File  PWCG Preview2.jpg   1.72MB   2 downloads

 

Update! I've added an optional add-on feature for any future skins. I've created the wing stripes shown below, and they can be added to any of the available skins. They could also be used as a "stand alone" to make a unique personal skin, just by adding them alone to any squadron skin. Now it would take some serious math skills to figure out the number of possible skin combinations with these added!

Anyone requesting personal skins for a jasta can note which of these (if any) they would like added to any of the above skins.

I would like to start creating these for Jastas that players use, so I will take requests from PWCG users that would like these incorporated. Just tell me the Jasta you would like done, and select up to ten skins (if you have a preference). Currently, I can create all of the Albatros planes, the Pfalz D.IIIa, the Fokker Dr.I, and the Fokker D.VII & D.VIIF. Any future aircraft will be automatically included. I will add the finished downloads to the bottom of this post and then send Pat the text needed to have them show up in PWCG. Sorry, but I can't really customize these (too much).

I think users would be impressed with the added immersion that comes from using personal skins for your (or your opponent) AI squadmates in PWCG, so send me your requests and try them out for yourself!

Jasta 18 is done … almost. I'll add the Pfalz D.IIIa today or tomorrow.

The "late" versions of the D.Va and D.IIIa skins will come later. I'll need to come up with a way for these to work with this Jasta when they switch over to the red and white fuselages. :?
However, they do look nice on the earlier blue and red paint jobs.

I'll make sure these get in the next PWCG update. There's still time to get another Jasta or two if anyone has any suggestions. :S!:

FGTH-Fan ,
Jasta 6 should be easy. I should have all the Alb's done today. Since J6 doesn't have a Pfalz default skin (and they don't appear to fly them in PWCG), I won't be doing any PD3a skins for them. However, I will probably do some generic personal skins for the Pfalz (and other planes - if needed), … eventually.

Dutch,
I could be misunderstanding you, but were you looking to get a #20 skin made? Sorry, but at this time I'm only doing personal skins from the above image, and then applying them to existing squadron default skins. Numbers and letters are the most work, especially larger ones that span multiple model faces. Plus, I'm trying to make each one of the above for each plane, while also making them look uniform. So there's a lot of work left to do … :?

The Jasta 18 skins look great and will add more color in the skies in PWCG whether you are flying for or against them :S!:

Jasta 18's PD3a and Jasta 6's Albatros skins have been uploaded.

I'll send Pat the text files when they're finished (almost done), so that they will show up in the squadron selection listing after the next PWCG update. However, you will see them now in the "loose skins" list once they're installed.

All the latest skin downloads should be showing up in the GUI in Pat's latest release (15.9). Please let me know if anything isn't working for the Jasta 6, 7, or 18 personal skins.

Note: I included Jasta6 & 7's Dr.1 personal skin entries in this release, but the actual skins aren't ready for download yet. I'll need a few days on that. The new Jasta7 Dr.1 defaults will get their own upload later tonight, complete with previews (they look nice and I'll be submitting them as Historical Skins).

Hi Dude,

I just tried to download the Jasta 7 Dr.1 skins from your link in the other thread and it pointed me to some music files. Appreciate the music, but would rather have the skins :P

LOL - you're right about that, Bucksnort! It looks like something got messed up when Panthercules copied the link to the main download section. I'll let him know …

Anyway, the links in my post work fine (bottom of the first page here): PWCG 15.5 Focus on skins - need help

I'm sure I screw up sometimes, but you can't lay this one on me :)

The link was messed up in your post originally as well, but it's been corrected now in both places, so all should be good at this point.

This is a nice idea :)

Thanks, Trooper, but I'd like to take it to the next level.

My goal is to have others chip in as well. I'd be happy to add other designs to the "menu" to pick from, but I would need to have other painters willing to submit their design rendered on each German plane. I would do the rest (adding them to the menu and rendering them onto the different squadrons' planes, and adding them to PWCG). For now, I'll be supporting the German plane set of: AD2 & AD2L, AD3 (same fuselage as AD2), AD5, PD3a, FDr.1, & FD7 & FD7f. I can create any Jasta's entire plane set in a couple hours, but I won't have much time for drawing new personal skin designs. I have 18 different designs, but I'd love to see that number increase with the help of others …

If anyone is willing to do a design (or two) for each of the listed planes, please consider chipping in! (of course, full credit goes out to those who contribute)

Some suggestions:

One of the easiest, most realistic, and most useful designs is the simple colored band. So many pilots used it. In Jasta 16 a blue and white band (Bavaria) is one of the schemes. For a Saxon Jasta green and white. For Wurttemberg, red and black. Prussia is white and black. Yellow was a very common regimental color. If possible, try to find images of regimental insignia (skull is a favorite) and use those.

All great ideas, Pat … if someone else is willing to create them. ;) I'll be done "drawing" after the D.VII's. (Photoshop burnout :xx: )

I'd be willing to give anyone some of my .psd work files if they want to edit or color them (the diagonal bands were more work than their worth), so that might be of some help. Like I said, if I can get any "design" rendered on each plane (preferably on the default template), I can trim it out and add it to my catalog of personal designs. Then it's easy to overlay it on any squadron's default paint job and create a new, squadron-specific, personal skin. I could crank out a ton of Jastas (that aren't all using the same personal skins) in that scenario.

Jasta 6 Fokker Dr.I Personal Skins now available for download in the first post of this thread.

The current version of PWCG already has these skins included, so all you need to do is download and install them. Sorry it took so long to get these made, but I haven't been doing much skinning lately.

Jasta 6 Fokker Dr.I Personal Skins now available for download in the first post of this thread.

The current version of PWCG already has these skins included, so all you need to do is download and install them. Sorry it took so long to get these made, but I haven't been doing much skinning lately.

:S!:

Dude (and others) - I've added the links to these latest Jasta 6 skins to the central repository thread, here:

Jasta 6 Fokker D.VII & D.VIIF (one, combined file) are now available for download in the first post of this thread.

I posted the text entries for Pat to incorporate these into the next PWCG update in his other thread.

I still haven't figured out how (or when) I'm going to get these to work on Jasta 18's red and white (late) paint jobs … :?

OK, the Jasta 18 "late" (Raben-era) personal skins are done! (AD5, PD3a, FD7 & FD7F) I had to do a lot of customizing for these, but they still follow the basic pattern as their earlier personal skins. I mixed up a lot of the different options for more variety (D.Va's are half red-wing / half lozenge, FD7F's are half open engine / half closed), and a few "extras" thrown in here and there.

Here are a few examples of the new skins:

 

Attached File  J18 AD5 & PD3a.jpg   1.76MB   0 downloads

 

Attached File  J18 FD7 & FD7F.jpg   1.89MB   0 downloads

They are available for download in the first post of this thread. Pat already has the text files to have these included in the next PWCG update.

Hope you get a chance to use them in PWCG! :icon_e_salute:

Great work guys,all these detailed (Squad,Jasta)paint jobs really do bring the whole immersion aspect of the career mode closer to home for me and many others I'm sure.

TBH it's bladdy hard to keep up with it what with all Pats steady updates & all these personalized skins but I and many others really appreciate & admire your dedication & passion in doing all this! Sorry it's Saturday night,just had 3 fantastic hours of hot intense stuff in PWCG flying No8 sqn and what fun was had even tho I am blathered! :x

I really hope we can get all these skins into an official update reasonably soon? Thankyou to all of you who strive to push this sim forward in still winds! :S!:

I really hope we can get all these skins into an official update reasonably soon?

Since these aren't really historical skins (though they are historically plausible and, in the case of the Entente ones I'm doing, are as true to the historical type and placement of the markings that the relevant squadrons used as my reference materials allow), they won't be added to any official updates/skin packs. For one thing, I can't speak for the others but I've done over 925 of these PWCG skins in the last few months, and I have no time or intention of doing all the preview pictures and .txt files for them that would be required if they were to be submitted for inclusion in an approved pack.

However, the good news is that they don't really need to be - "mods off" is pretty much a multi-player artifact, and I suspect that almost everybody who plays PWCG is going to be playing with mods on anyway. So, no need to worry about getting these into any official anything - just enjoy what Pat's been able to do to make them usable with PWCG.

I've updated the available skins to chose from. Basically, I've added colors to my existing single and double band designs. Also, all of these types have wheels colored to match their bands (single or double-tone). Since I didn't paint the single white band's wheels white in the original submission, I've done so and updated the first download accordingly. Re-downloading the first one is clearly optional.

Here are the newest options:

So the total available designs to chose from now stands at 32. I am currently creating the new versions for the rest of the Central plane set, but I can probably get back to creating complete sets for different jastas soon. My next project will probably be to create some personal skins for the rest of the JG1 squads. I would like to limit the number of duplicates for those jastas (already have 10 designs used for Jasta 6), so that there is more variety within that entire group. This is probably the main reason I want to get these new options completed.

The Flying Circus has arrived at a PWCG airfield near you!

I've just finished the rest of the JG1 squads (Jastas 4, 10, and 11). I already did Jasta 6, so now we have the other squads. I wanted to reduce the number of duplicate skins throughout the four squads, so I've managed to utilize more personal skins and none are repeated more than once. I altered some of the base "defaults" that I used. I fixed any errors I found, improved the resolution of some that were "pixely", and tried to make the yellow and reds closer in tone for all of the different J10 & J11 planes. The FD7F engine covers were all messed up, so I fixed them and created both "open" and "closed" version for each squad's FD7F's for more variety (5 open and 5 closed). I wish I did the same for Jasta 6, because their FD7F's have the same engine cover problem, but the fix wouldn't be easy because of their stripes. I hope to get to that at a later time. I also found a cool dark-grey Pfalz paint job for Jasta 10, and I used that as a base scheme for 4 of their 10 Pfalz aircraft.

Here are a few examples of the new skins:

Attached File  J10 preview.jpg   1.5MB   0 downloads

 

Attached File  J11 preview.jpg   1.49MB   0 downloads

 

For the record, here are the skins used for each squad:

Jasta 4

1. Drgn - Dragon
2. H - "H"
3. KH - Knight's Helm
4. Wolf - Wolf
5. L - "L"
6. R - Gothic "R"
7. S - "S"
8. X - "X"
9. Lion - Lion Crest
10. Boar - Boar Crest

Jasta 10

1. Snke - Snake
2. R - Gothic "R"
3. L - "L"
4. Crsd - Crusader Crest
5. Blue - Blue and White bands
6. GW - Green and White bands
7. YW - Yellow and White bands
8. YB - Yellow and Black bands
9. BW - Black and White bands
10. Stal - Stallion

Jasta 11

1. BF - Black Falcon
2. Skul - Skull
3. Crsd - Crusader Crest
4. S - "S"
5. Boar - "Boar Crest
6. Red - Red band
7. Wht - White band
8. RW - Red and White bands
9. RB - Red and Black bands
10. Bx2 - Double Black band

I will try to get Pat the text files in the next day or two so that he can get these into the next PWCG release.

Hope you get a chance to use these! :icon_e_salute:

Hey Dude - looking good!

If you can clarify for me which skins/links have changed or been updated as a result of the post above, I'll update the central repository thread accordingly.

Hi all!

Please be sure to let me know if any of these skins aren't showing up correctly in PWCG.

I noticed that I had entered Jasta 10's AD2L skins without the "L", so they weren't showing up in game. I only found out when I tried flying for Jasta 10 in PWCG in early 1917. Also, it appears that Jasta 11 & 18's text entries are probably not working for the Albatros D.II or D.II late (I haven't yet flown them), so I sent Pat a text update to fix all three squads. This should be fixed in the next update.

Jasta Boelcke has been added!

One good thing resulted from the previous "buggy" 777 update, as I managed to find time to do some more skin work. Jasta Boelcke has (finally!) been created, and I even included one of my new options (wing stripes) to a few of the skins for some added variety.

Here is a preview of 4 of the designs used for J2, that haven't been used before (in the exact same way, at least):

 

Attached File  J2 preview.jpg   1.51MB   0 downloads
 

As is common with most D.VIIF squadron skins, the "covered" engine needed fixing, and I followed my usual, half-open and half-closed theme for this group. The downloads are available at the bottom of my first post in this thread. I'll send Pat the text files needed to have these show up in the next PWCG release soon.

For the record, the skins are:

1. BB - Blue and Black Bands
2. GB - Green and Black Bands
3. Blk - Black Band (with matching wing stripes)
4. Wht - White Band ( " )
5. Blu - Blue Band ( " )
6. WB - White and Black Bands (with black and white wing stripes)
7. BF - Black Falcon
8. KH - Knight's Helm
9. Skul - Skull
10. Drgn - Dragon
11. S - letter "S"
12. X - letter "X"

Hope you get a chance to enjoy these! :icon_e_salute:
