Hi there.
Image

This is my Fokker Dr.I personal skin: White-Blue scheme, Steinbock marking on side, chevron marking on upper fuselage, slim 1918 Balkenkreutz.

I made it to look pseudo-historical, wheatered and all.

Hope you won't mind, i'd be glad to fly in my own colours.

Thanks.

Good job, but the white is too bright. Use a light gray color, please.

Good job, but the white is too bright. Use a light gray color, please.

The brightness of the attached image may result because of my monitor settings: i increased the highpass to counter the effect of the HDR-high settings of my RoF.

The white used in the skin it's the same of the background below the iron crosses of the defalut Dr.I skin. This can be checked easily opening both dds files in a image editing application.

Thank you for your comment!

It is possible, but still I recommend using less bright colors, it always gives realistic coloring.

Great job, Carl! It totally fits the "could have been" category, so it's definitely a "YES" ;)

I'm sorry, but your monitor settings have no effect on taken screenshots I think. I suggest turning off HDR and bloom when taking screenshots to get the colours to show as natural as possible.

Following Jorri's suggestion, i'll post a version of the screenshot with HDR and bloom switched off. Hope this will help.

Little offtop.

I think that the new graphics effects (HDR etc.) - not the best option to improve graphics :roll: . Color distortion - not the most worst option :lol:

We have a big discussion topic about it with a poll -a lot of people seem to like it, me included.

Great for first person cockpit view, very bad for exterior camera and screenshots. I think everyone posting skin previews should keep that in mind.

Indeed, you could have gotten away with it if you had claimed it to be a historical skin. :)
