Sorry, Imperor, but you really should take a screen shot as requested…we can't see nothing in your viewer (light etc…)
And if i can add something else, you should invert your top wing numbers same as Emperor rise of flight ;)

Otherwise, black is looking good!

Do not worry soon lay out a normal photo, and please do not judge too harshly this is my first skin made by me! ;)

It looks pretty good, but I'll hold my vote until you have a proper screenshot online.

Maybe next time consider finalising the things you need before you post the poll?

Hey Emperor, great first skin. A few suggestions though from someone who learned this the hard way.

Take screenshot, and test view your skins in game with HDR, Bloom, and shadows off, this will give you the absolute best view of your skin. I remember just the black tail of my Dr. 1 looked great in the viewer and terrible in the game, so as far as I'm concerned its best to stop using the viewer completely when designing a skin.

Also, I'm not sure how whole words/ sentences on the wings work, to me it doesn't look too good, I think it looks a little better on the fuselage.

For the black, make sure that you check it in game, because it looks pretty saturated in the viewer, even for black. Personally I've found an excellent black color is 22/22/23 RGB. Turn that to 85-95% opacity and its rich without being too saturated.

Otherwise good first skin!

Please note the following item(s) needing attention:

1. Only one screenshot is allowed in your poll post, per Lefty's instructions - please pick one (preferably shot in game as other posters mentioned above), bigger than what you have but not more than 1024x768, and delete the other pictures from your first post.

2. Your download file is missing the required preview picture (300x100 .jpg file) - please shoot one in game, from the correct angle and zoom, per Lefty's posted instructions (see example picture at bottom of this post: http://riseofflight....hp?f=154&t=8092">viewtopic.php?f=154&t=8092 )

3. Please add the "z " at the beginning of the skin name strings in all 5 localization sections, per the naming convention in the clarified guidelines posted here: http://riseofflight....hp?f=112&t=8450">viewtopic.php?f=112&t=8450 . For example, your ENG section now reads:

ENG:
"graphics\Skins\FokkerDr1\FDr1_emperor.dds" "Emperor skin" "My personal skin"

To match the naming convention, it should read:

ENG:
"graphics\Skins\FokkerDr1\FDr1_emperor.dds" "z Emperor skin" "My personal skin"

4. The description string you've chosen (e.g., "My personal skin"), while it may be technically OK, isn't very helpful or descriptive - it might be better to use the formulation set forth in the simplified, pre-translated template found in the above guidelines (e.g., "Fictional skin for use by Emperor").

5. Something about the Russian you've used in your .txt file is screwing up when it displays on my PC - I've seen this problem with only a couple of other posters (out of the all these skins I've processed), and I still haven't found a solution to it, though Lefty seems to think it may have somethuing to do with the font you are using in your .txt file (or perhaps the way you are saving it down). When you fix your .txt file for the above items, can you please (a) use arial font, and (b) maybe copy/paste the Russian out of the pre-translated template from the clarified guidelines mentioned above - that Russian seems to work on both my machine and neoqb's as well.

6. When you upload your corrected download file, please do so in standard .zip format (not .rar)

7. Also, please edit the poll portion of your first post so that (1) it only runs for 14 days (change the "0" to a "14" down near the bottom), and (2) it allows people to choose only one option, not two - checking the box to allow people to change their vote is a good idea, in case you're going to be improving the skin along the way, but people should only be able to select one option - they shouldn't be able to vote both yes and no at the same time.

Thanks - if you have any questions, please feel free to PM me.
