Nice work on a very complex skin!

 

Just a couple of small points:

 

1. Your file names are (i) too long (max 17 characters plus the .dd extension), and (ii) not consistent (all 3 files - .dds, .jpg and .txt - need to have exactly the same name, except for the file extensions).

 

2. There are small but noticeable glitches where the white stripe across the top decking behind the cockpit joins with the vertical white stripes running down the sides of the fuselage.  I know how much of a PITA matching stripes on these birds can be, so I'd understand if you didn't want to mess with it, but it'd be a shame to leave such a cool-looking skin with that kind of glitch if it can be fixed.

 

3.  Your .txt files have a couple of problems (in addition to the too-long file names, of course) - e.g., spacing/carriage returns not right, skin name string too long and skin description string missing - see one country section below as an example:

 

You have:

//ENG:
"graphics\Skins\SopCamel\SC_B7910_No10_RNAS_Hinchliffe_1917.dds" "xxxxxxxx" "B7190 Capt. W.G.R. Hinchliffe c Flight No. 10 Sqn RNAS March 1917"

 

It should be:

//ENG:
 
"graphics\Skins\SopCamel\SC_<shorter file name>.dds" "xxxxxxxx" "RNAS 10 W.G.R. Hinchliffe B7190" "Sopwith Camel No. B7190, No. 10 Sqn RNAS C Flight, flown by Capt. W.G.R. Hinchliffe, March 1917"

 

And another, minor point - your preview picture is taken from too far away - the plane looks tiny in the middle of the picture - it would be better to zoom in a bit and take it so that the plane fills up as much of the picture as possible - see example below:

 

Yours:

PREVIEW%20SC_B7190.jpg

 

Better zoom:

better%20zoom%20PREVIEW%20SC_B7190.jpg

 

In addition to better meeting the dev's requirements for preview pictures, the closer zoom level will show off your beauty better in the game's hangar screen.

Thank buddy I will change it tomorrow. I'm about to go watch a movie with the wife. Oh can you disregard my Sopwith Pup I made for now. I need to fix my .txt file on that one too. Once again thank you so much for helping me. It has been quite a while since I have skinned for RoF.
