Being a new user, while learning how to adjust & fly the A/C, thought I would dress up the old war horse with a couple of custom skins. I have the steam version.
Did not want to clutter up the folders with the large packs until I learn the folder structure better.
D/L a few skins from the historical skins poll above. None of the D/L'd 300x100 pixel [.jpeg] thumbnails will display with a mouse over.
Research this forum revealed these have to be converted to [.dds] format.
Considering both the paint file & thumbnail file have the exact same filename & location, conversion is not an option.
I read the Skins Thumbnails by JG1_Vonrd_J10. In it Panthercules states:
They are stored in the various plane type folders (in a Skins subfolder) in the Rise of Flight\data\swf\planes folder structure
In the steam version there isn't any folder structure for the planes in the SWF folder.
The plane folders are located in Rise of Flight 2.0\data\graphics\Skins\planes folder structure.
As a matter of fact there aren't even any default graphic files for any of the aircraft in the planes folders.
These are the skins that were D/L'd:
plus a couple of Nieuports. With the Albatros plane all of the files failed to display.
Converting the file is not a problem.
If anyone can point me in the right direction, as to how the files should be named or as to where to place the files for them to display properly, it would be greatly appreciated.
