Thanks to a suggestion by tvrtko, I'm pleased to announce the creation of the new, unofficial Rise of Flight Skin Exchange

With the thousands of Official and Community-created skins that are available in a total of 25 large approved Skin Packs (so far), there are probably a lot of players who do not have the time, inclination, bandwidth or hard drive space to download and install all of the skin packs but who would like to be able to get some particular skins to use in their game.

I have created several aids to try to help people find and D/L the skins they might be looking for (see the Skin Pack FAQ linked to in this thread: http://riseofflight....g-related-info/ for information about the combined readme files and special Career Mode skin packages that are available).

However, for those of you who may only be looking for a few particular skins and may not be able to D/L the entire skin pack files just to get them, you can use this thread to post your requests for specific skins (please provide as much information as you can about the skin(s) you are looking for, especially the file name(s) which you can get from the combined readme files mentioned above).

Then, some other player who already has the requested skin(s) installed on their PC can create a .zip file and upload the specific requested skin(s) to some free file site (such as MediaFire) and post a link to that uploaded .zip file in this thread so the requester can get just the skin(s) they're looking for. It would be best if the players uploading the requested files could include both the skin file and the preview picture and put them in a JSGME-ready "mod" package to make installation easier for the requester (that is extremely easy to do if you use Laser's awesome Skin Manager tool to do this), but since this is a gratuitous effort and beggars can't be choosers, the uploaders should not feel compelled to do so and the requesters should certainly not complain about it if they don't.

Please do not clog up this thread with too many extraneous discussions or off-topic posts - let's try to keep it limited to skin requests and responsive link postings, so it will stay useful.

Enjoy, and thanks to tvrtko for the suggestion icon_e_salute.gif

Thank you once again. So…
maybe I should be the first one ? :)

These two. Anyone. Please.

Werner Voss Jasta 10

Josef Jacobs Jasta 7

Correct me if I'm wrong but they not
into those "official historical pack" !? :?

Another thing…
Is there any recommendation for uploading
servers :?: cuz I saw that almost all that are
stored at "gamefront" are gone. "Mediafire"
is better i think. Anything else ?
Speed is not so important imho, these files
wouldn't be too big and much bigger issue
is their durability on this servers. :? Right ?

I have these planes but I do not know if I have the Fubar Dr1, I think it is from Graff. pm me if you want these.
I have collected lot of non official skins only from some I miss the preview. I can recommendate the Kurt Monnigton DVa J15 skin made by J5Bonam

sent you 4 from Voss and 1 from Jacobs, I had to compress these using winrar, only max 5mb seems to be handled by this site.

I've been thinking about doing this for some time, and the introduction of the new Rise of Flight Skin Exchange seemed like a good opportunity to put this idea into action.

Set forth in the thread below below are links to a new set of "Panther Packs" I have created and posted here for anybody that wants them (links that were here in this post originally seem to have been corrupted or something - however, the links in the thread below do seem to still be working):

Hi.
Does your Dr.1 package has Josef Jacobs (http://riseofflight....hp?f=204&t=8448" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">viewtopic.php?f=204&t=8448)
and/or Friedrich Kempf (http://riseofflight....hp?f=204&t=8647" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">viewtopic.php?f=204&t=8647) skins ?

PS:
Dutch, thanks for Voss skin(s). :S!:

I'm away from my RoF PC and can't check, but if those FDr1 skins were approved and released as part of a skin pack (you can check the combined readme file to determine that), then they will be in my FDr1 Panther Pack.

Sorry mate, I DL first two (Voss) skins and both times
when I looked up at status bar it said "1 new message"
so I knew there's some new mail. It worked just fine.
But after those two it always said "0 new messages" :?
so I figure that was it, didn't dig deep into it. I think
something is wrong with forum "new message alert".
And it's a little bit confusing where you can change
your preferences. Can we make that every time you
get new message pop-up screen appear ?
Hmm…. I think I'll figure that for myself…. :roll:

Dutch - I DL it all that you sent to me, so
there's no need to re-send them again.
Just… Friedrich Kempf, please.
Thank you. You rock. :S!:

You mean in the "Panther Packs" post above? Those are just the normal approved historical skins from the approved skin packs that have already been released - I've just used Laser's awesome skin management tool to organize them into smaller packages specific to each aircraft type that can be installed using JSGME, to help some folks get the skins for certain plane types without having to D/L and install all 13 giant skin packs (Official and 12 Community packs).

If you already have all the approved skin packs D/L'ed and installed, you're not missing anything and don't need to bother with the "Panther Packs".

Not to open new topic…

Same story again I guess… Very much
like the "RoF Official Skinspack v.1.028"
link doesn't work on this, official, page -
now I discover that there's even more.

Starting to complete my ROF folder with
all necessary skins, I go "RoF Community
Historical Skinspack" for found that many
of them doesn't work, either. I didn't try
them all (and who could blame me?, hey,
I'm at work :mrgreen: ) but did 1, 2, 3 and the
last one, #12. So here's my results:
2 and 12 are working;
1 and 3 doesn't.
Not so great percentage of 50-50, right ? :-/

They download perfectly though but then on
repacking - report already famous error "this is
not …valid 7-z archive" or something like that.
So I figure that we or test them all and write
here which of them work and which not, or…
that you guys "just" :mrgreen: reupload them. Asap. :mrgreen:
On Mediafire,say. :roll: Here are my observation:

RoF Community Historical Skinspack Vol.1 - NOPE
RoF Community Historical Skinspack Vol.2 - WORK
RoF Community Historical Skinspack Vol.3 - NOPE
RoF Community Historical Skinspack Vol.4
RoF Community Historical Skinspack Vol.5
RoF Community Historical Skinspack Vol.6
RoF Community Historical Skinspack Vol.7
RoF Community Historical Skinspack Vol.8
RoF Community Historical Skinspack Vol.9
RoF Community Historical Skinspack Vol.10
RoF Community Historical Skinspack Vol.11
RoF Community Historical Skinspack Vol.12 - WORK

Sorry to see you're having troubles with those files. Have you tried using WinRAR to open the ones that you've already D/L'ed that don't seem to be working? That has helped me with problems with the free-to-play client that has caused problems fr some folks.

I'll try to remember to upload alternative versions of the community historical packs to MediaFire when I get back from work tonight.

Yup, I tried them and to just install as an
every ordinary exe file and to unpack with
winrar. But, when I open them this way -
they seems empty !? :?
Strangely enough… I DL 4, 5, 6, 7and 10
now. And… :o they all seems to work ??
Is it possible that all guilt (for those that
doesn't work, last time) was - on me ?!? :?

Hey everyone, I did not have much time to read through all of the posts, but I'm looking for a specific skin.

I am looking for Canadian themed skins, mostly for RE8's, N. 17's, SE5a, Sopwith Pup and Triplane. By this, I mean some sort of maple leaf on the fueselage. In reference to a movie, I don't know if anyone remember the RE8 in the beginning of "The Red Baron" but something like that. It could be the same thing for all of them. If anyone could help me, that would be awesome.

Also, once I have the skin, how do I properly get it to the game? Are there any specific programs I need to look and use the skins?

I know that this has all been answered somewhere on this forum but unfortunately, my job does not allow me much time to browse these forums.

Thank you for anyone who can answer or help.

Welcome to the Forums!

I'm not aware of any historical skins that have maple leaf symbols (not to say for sure there aren't any - I just don't recall having seen any). IIRC, there are some personal/fictional skins some folks have done that have featured maple leaf symbols, either on the fuselage or as part of the roundels (see, e.g., those done by Hoogie, including this one: http://riseofflight....gie#entry205971 ). I don't suppose they would mind if you just wanted to use those skins in your offline/single player game (though they might think differently about you using them online in MP games - some folks care and some don't).

Once you find the skins you're looking for, if they're part of one of the approved skin packs then you won't need to do anything special to make them work in the game - just copy/install them into the correct file folders and you'll be good to go. If they're not already approved, you'll still copy them into the correct folders but will have to play in "mods on" mode in order to use and see them in the game.

Check out this thread (especially the Skin Pack FAQ linked to therein) for all the info you should need about how to deal with skins in RoF:

Well…. Billy Bishop (the leading Canadian ace in WWI)
had Maple Leaf on his plane.And here's the link for his
beloved N17. He's flying (and claimed) on S.E.5a also.

riseofflight.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=112&t=8709

And here are all of his claims.
www.theaerodrome.com/aces/canada/bishop-c.php

For skin "installing"…
Well, you don't need to install anything actually.
Just put files in appropriate folder
:arrow: ("Rise of Flight\data\graphic\skins\desired plane")
And - make sure you click "mods on" option in game.
That's all actually.
If the skin had thumbnail pic - which is used for you
be able to see what skin look alike before you select
it, they go in
:arrow: "Rise of Flight\data\sfw\planes\desired plane"
And that would be all. Good luck. :S!:

Btw… Canada rocks !!! :)

I think there are actually 7, but I agree that's not many. I don't think it's a lack of interest - I just think there's not much info available for skins for that plane, IIRC.

Fubar made a Voss Dr.1 skin, which is included in Historical Volume 7 (FDr1_J10_VOSS.dds), and an updated version (FDr1_J10_Voss2.dds) that was included in Historical Volume 11.

I think he may also have created some other versions while he was trying to decide which version (s) to submit for polls, as noted in this thread: http://riseofflight....oss#entry534515

I've found 3 Voss FDr.1 skins in my folder (Two of them should be the Fubar ones above - not sure where the 3rd one came from) - I've uploaded them here if you'd like to see them:

Maybe he doesn't want to DL all those packs
to find out which one ?

Von_Schmidt, mate…. if for a couple of days
no one upload it for you I'll find it and upload
for you. Can't really do it now cuz this is not
my gaming pc.
And don't have internet at home. Just hope
that someone, who has those both on same
pc, will jump in, in meantime.
It will be much easier for them. Maybe even
Dutch2 will jump in. :) I know he's doing
the same couple of times for me.

It's actually in CHSP Volume 9.

@ Von_Schmidt - I've uploaded it here, in case you don't want to D/L the whole Volume 9 skin pack (though of course you should D/L them all, as there are tons of great skins available in the packs):
