Hello

 

I was wondering if someone could help me edit a skin for the albatross D.Va?

 

If so, then you can find how the skin looks on the plane.

 

As you can see the top wing is red, with the german symbol. The thing I want to edit is to make the bottom wing have the same red colour as the top wing without the german symbol

 

 

 

If someone wants to do this for me the name of the skin in-game is called: Jasta 18 Unknown Pilot

 

The file name is: AD5_J18Unknown1918.dds

The skin can be found in the Historical Volume 1 (10 JUN 2010)

 

Thanks in advance

Something like this?

Attached File  Revised J18 unkown 1918 skin.jpg   625.54KB   0 downloads

 

 

A JSGME-ready package with this skin is available here:  http://www.mediafire... JSGME.zip/file

 

Just unzip it into your MODS folder, activate it with JSGME, and then select it in the hangar screen in game (be sure you have mods on ticked, or else you will not see it).

Yes thats exactly what I wanted, thank you so much!

 

But I really want to be able to create skins of my own or edit some skins for myself, any idea what the best software is for this?

Did you use Adobe photoshop with nvidia or another software?

If you have access to Photoshop (costs implied) or Gimp (free) you can edit existing .DDS files or create new skins from the templates provided by the devs.

Drop me a PM if you need more info.

Spammers are not my thing...except for the one with the massive k******s. I was impressed with that one.

Yeah - I used Photoshop with the nVidia dds plugin.  Never used GIMP myself, but lots of skinners here were using it back in the day.  Check out this thread for all the skinning-related info you might want:

I will surely do that, but I saw that this skin is also available for the Fokker Dr.I, problem is... I can't find it. Is this skin in one of the historical skinpacks or not?

Don't know, . Historically Jasta 18 didn't fly the Fokker DR1, apart from August Raben, the flight leader, as far as anyone can tell.  Apparently they had a few for balloon busting? I made a load for PWCG, but they're not historical. You can find the skin packs here (as well as thousands of other Jasta & 2 seater skins for Central powers.)

Post # 104.

 

There's 40 skins in there covering Alb D5, Pfals D3, Fokker DR1 & Fokker D7. 10 of each.
