Mr Von Oben,

 

Here's some images to show alpha channel in action!

 

The Albatros is painted in the white I use in game (RGB 165 165 165)

 

Ist pic is alpha in pure white, flat as a pancake (RGB 255 255 255)

Second is pure black....goodbye plane! (RGB 0 0 0)

 

Attached File  PURE BLACK.jpg   498.71KB   1 downloads

 

And the third is alpha channel in RGB 165 165 165 same as the plane..shiny!

So the alpha channel is created from various shades of grey, and the lightness/darkness of those shades dictate the shine (or lack thereof) of the crate in the sky. The alpha channel is darker in the FC templates than in the ROF ones, so your ROF skin in FC will be more reflective when used in FC than it is in ROF, if you follow?

 

S!

Mr. GooseH, 

 

Thank you; I understand.  

 

Actually, now that I've been flying the skins a bit, I don't see the gloss as being that much different from the others; standard skins included.  I no longer see it as a significant factor in the game, so I thank you for your efforts; they have been successful and I don't see any need to change it further.

 

From my perspective, your Todt skin #6 works in ROF and Skin #8 works in FC1 (where the whole game's darker but all I had to do was up the gamma in settings).  

 

You've been so considerate and accommodating, I can't help but feel like I'm imposing.  But if you had time, could you make me an Albatros DV.a, please?  That plane is now available in FC1 and I would really like to fly mine there.

 

It's very simple.   "Zweifacher Arger" (Double Trouble) is just a standard Jasta12 Default "Blacktail" skin with the duo-tone camo atop the wings instead of the lozenge pattern; and a two-pronged fork situated longitudinally on the fuselage and forward of the black empennage; ala my triplane.  

 

Here are pics of the camo and fork. 

 

Wouldn't even have to be that same pattern; just the duo-flage would be fine. If they have a stock two-tone pattern available, I'd be more than happy with that.

 

If you would consider it, sir.

 

Thanks for everything you've done for me and others.  Greatly enjoying the triplane.   :icon_e_salute:   

 

VBR, 

 

Todt Von Oben

 

PS: Also, here's a sideview of the plane I made with the old Picture It! graphics program; shows how the fork would look.

Hello again Sir. I've been up a tree house for a while, so been limited in what I can do. Will be back at my main rig sometime in the week so I can do that for you. No problem.

Thank you, Sir! 

Treehouse?  Sounds like a romp! Enjoy!   :icon_e_salute:

Thinking it through, I've decided against the fork.  Here's a pic showing the image I'd like on the fuselage; I can email you the graphic.   :icon_e_smile:

And now the Fok DrI.  The Jasta 5 triplanes came from JGI who had transitioned to the Fok DVII.  So they were hand me downs and you can see this bird had a different scheme that belonged to a prior owner.  Excellent detail.

Oh they do and the screenies really don't do the actual results justice!  This is one of the reasons I love this era and the Luftstreitkrafte in particular.

Hiho together :icon_e_salute:

Gooseh is a true artist in my opinion!

 

But not only does he make very good historical skins, he is always ready to help when it comes to purely fictional skins.

I asked for help in the German forum and showed simple drafts with Paint...
L6xHhJnJ.jpg

 

And Gooseh made this...
Vu8KUUy1.jpg

 

I like these skins very well and I like to use them too, but I also wanted to use the standard version of the Albatros D.II, even if it is historically not correct. So Gooseh helped me again...

Just wonderful skins and i am happy  :) 

And my idea for these skins...
Is a small Jasta or Shusta in 5-man strength, which plays in the flight breaks always cards, mainly with a French sheet. And to make the Frenchman a long nose, they use for their new Albatros D.II the symbols of the French card game. But as for the squadron leader, who almost always had an unbeatable talent in card playing and was otherwise considered a "lucky kid" by his comrades, his wingmen agreed unanimously, it had to be a shamrock for him.

Many thanks to Gooseh! :icon_e_smile:

Via my extensive connections at the Luftstreitkrafte and the Kaiser's court I have secured the award of the House of Hohenzollern for our dear Gooseh in recognition of all his fine service on behalf of the Vaterland's fliers.

 

Prost!!!!
