Well, looks like my slow pace on the next release pays dividends too :). I'll get these in.

Sweet :S!:

It just gets better and better flying for and fighting against the Germans as your skins are coming on board, Dude! I ran into Jasta 18 the other day and wow :0o:

That's good to hear, Bucksnort. Jasta 18 was a lot of work, but it was all worth it due to their (already) awesome paint schemes. Adding personal design elements to them was just a cherry on the top!

Thanks guys, and please let me know if anything doesn't work as planned. It's pretty easy to mess up a skin name or text entry, but hard to catch if I don't fly every squadron from start to finish.

Question: Am I correct in assuming that ones does not have to assign skins to the non ace pilots and your skins should appear?

I ask as it's not working that way for me and I checked and the skins and the text files are all in order.

Here are the particulars:
- Jasta 5 - my favorite!
- Date = Feb 1, 1918
- Pilots = 5
Me - chose my own skin
Konnecke - his ace skin appeared
Rumney - his ace skin appeared
2 non aces - only their plain default skins appeared

Thoughts on what I'm missing?

IIRC, if you're talking about your own flight you need to assign the skins to your (non-ace) squadron mates manually using the skin-assignment screens in PWCG (it won't let you assign skins to the pilots it treats as aces). In the non-player flights, the available skins should be assigned automatically by PWCG.

Ahh…light bulb time. That makes sense. TY!

Another question:

Say you have assigned skins to all non aces in your squad.
Then you fly the mission and you encounter another flight from your squad.

Does this other flight have the assigned skins or the Dude/Panther skins?

That's a good question. I would assume that they have the skins you assigned to the relevant pilots who hapen to be in that flight (assuming you did that in the skin assignment screens), but I haven't had that happen in one of my test flights yet so I can't say for sure what happens in this case.

I'll try to remember to fly a few more test missions and see if I can replicate that situation.

They do, but I've found the percentage to be fairly low. Maybe 1 or 2 planes out of a group of 5 will have personal skins applied. Me and Panthercules have put in our requests to Pat for him to increase that to 90-100% or so.

You can see an example of an encounter with an AI flight from the same squad here (just after the 9:30 mark):

 

https://www.youtube....Bw8j3u&index=20

 

Remember, when assigning skins, use the list in the upper portion of the main window (in the skin selection page). That will display the available skins designed for that squadron, and they will disappear from the list when you are assigning skins to other pilots within that squadron. Also, don't forget to toggle between planes. You would want the same design for each different plane that pilot uses. You should assign your own skin too, just to save you the hassle of selecting it before every flight. You will only need to do all of this again for the new pilots as they come in, and then for the entire group when your squad gets new types of planes (including camo or marking changes).

Hope that helps!

Jasta 15 Personal Skins have been added!

The Jasta 15 personal skins are available for download at the bottom of my first post in this thread. Because their paint scheme is nearly identical to Jasta 18's early paint scheme, I tried to use more of the designs that weren't used by Jasta 18 for added variety. Like Jasta 18, half of the Albatros skins have blue wings, while the rest have camo and/or lozenge. They look pretty good and I posted some extra previews below.

 

Attached File  J15 preview.jpg   1.58MB   0 downloads

 

Attached File  J15 preview2.jpg   1.54MB   0 downloads

 

For Jasta 15, the designs used are:

1. H - letter "H"
2. KH - Knight's Helm
3. Lion - Lion Crest
4. R - Gothic "R"
5. RW - Red and White Bands
6. S - letter "S"
7. Star - Gold Star
8. Wht - White Band with matching wing stripes
9. X - letter "X"
10. YW - Yellow and White Bands

Hope you have a chance to use these for PWCG. I'll probably take a break from skinning more Jastas for a few weeks as I'm looking forward to getting more flying in.

Jasta 6 D.VIIF Personal Skins Updated

So I finally got around to fixing the Jasta 6 D.VIIF engine cover. A lot of the existing D.VIIF skins use the D.VII paint, and it doesn't work with the "closed" engine version. Engine parts and background bleed onto the "F" cover, and any color break-ups don't line up. I've been fixing this on all my PWCG personal skins, but I discovered this at the tail end of my Jasta 6 work and I didn't have the time to fix them due to their stripes. Some of my recent work paved the way for me to go back and fix these, so it wasn't too difficult this time around. The following image shows the issue and the new skins:

Attached File  J6 Engine Cover Fix.jpg   1.34MB   1 downloads

 

I updated the download link for Jasta 6's D.VII's (FD7 & FD7F are combined) in my first post in this thread. I included new defaults for Jasta 6: May1918 (open), and Sep1918 (closed) with all fixes applied. As common with the other Jastas, I used 5 open designs and 5 closed for the personal skin designs.

If you've downloaded the Jasta 6 personal skins, you might want to overwrite those D.VIIF skins with these new ones.

No problem, Panther. I added Jasta 7 to this list (since they were first created in Pat's original thread), and cleaned up the spacing a bit to make it easier to read (or copy, if you ever plan to update my skins in the master file).

Hey Dude - I'm not sure I understand what you're saying here.  When you say you added Jasta 7, do I now have to update the "One Place" repository for new Jasta 7 links or are they the same as they were before and you just added them to this thread?

 

Also, when you say " if you ever plan to update my skins in the master file" what do you mean?  I haven't been updating Pat's skin master files for the Central planes - I thought you guys who were creating the Central skins were doing that.  Is there something that needs to be updated in Pat's skin files at this point?

Panther, I can't edit the "one place to go" post, so those links are still broken. I included Jasta 7 so that my thread has everything from me (Central scouts), so that's what you would copy ... if you were so inclined. :icon_e_wink:

Jasta 65 personal skins added to PWCG!

 

After an extended lay-off, I've added another squad to the PWCG personal skins list. Jasta 65 has been added to the first post in this thread. As they only fly the DVa & FD7 in PWCG (plus DXII ... which no personal skin templates have been made), there are only a couple downloads needed to cover that squadron.

 

Here is a preview of some of their paint jobs:

 

Attached File  J65 preview.jpg   1.7MB   0 downloads

 

For the record, the skins are:

1. BF - Black Falcon
2. Blu - Blue Band (with matching wing stripes)
3. Boar - Boar Crest (with red and yellow wing stripes)
4. Crsd - Crusader Crest
5. Drgn - Dragon
6. Red - Red Band (with matching wing stripes)
7. Snke - Snake
8. Stal - Stallion (with black wing stripes)
9. Star - Gold Star of David
10.Wolf - Wolf

 

Note: this squad was by request. Since most of the "popular" squads have been done already, I will probably only add more if I get specific requests. Please post below if you have any favorites that I've missed!
