  1. Wow... I didn't realize there was that selection in personal weapons (and why it should be in that category... baffling). Glad you got it sussed.
  2. I don't really want to start a new thread. Maybe keep the OP and just delete the rest? I can probably edit the original to just have the (hopefully error free 😎) full skinpack.
  3. Yeah, my screenshots don't see the text either.
  4. Looks like I missed the Entente first page: https://www.dropbox.com/s/hlbeuv202825c6z/il-2 sturmovik 2020-02-02 14-36-28.mp4?dl=0
  5. I recorded. I will try to post it.
  6. This has been fixed in (V2)... see original post.
  7. Did you download the main Flying Circus FIF Winter (V2)? They are in there. The Flying Circus FIF Winter Patch(1) is just a patch and doesn't include all the skins. Also, there was a mistake on the main file with a "data" file within the main "data" file. See the original post.
  8. Sound of palm striking forehead... 😭 The file has been fixed but probably too late.
  9. Sorry Daedallus, you flew too close to the sun and your skins melted... oops... that was your son Icarus. My condolences for your loss. Your skins are in the Flying Circus FIF Winter Patch(1). Just download that. No need to do the whole thing again.
  10. German aircraft skins with szachownica lotnicza are not in the skinpack. All other 1PL skins included.
  11. Jason posted this in his Briefing Room: Posted January 22 Q. Jason when will you tell us if there will be another Flying Circus? Please? We love it and want more - it's awesome and I have told all my friends to buy it in the Official Webstore! A. No decision has been made yet. Infer from that what you will, but I cannot get into confidential info, my bosses would get quite angry. My desire is to always make more products, I create products, that's what I do. Any new products have to make business sense for not only us, but our partners who share in the work. The concept of FC1 presented an opportunity to take a larger than usual gamble and do an experiment. As we know in Las Vegas, once you lose, gambling again may quickly become throwing good money after bad, not a wise move. Same in business. Asking the community to re-invest in a technically improved WWI sim, but with lesser installed content while our earlier title ROF is still a fun, good-looking sim may have been too much to ask for. But this was the only way to try and make a new WWI anything, going back to work on ROF is simply not an option for the team. It's kind of in the hands of the community at this point. I can add some more non-Career SP content (which I have stated already) and adjust the price when I can, but the question becomes how bad does the community want an FC2 to happen? The only way that it will get a green-light is if FC1 proved there was an appetite for more WWI. And even if we say yes we want it, does our partner want to do it? Do I have the resources to make what the community says they want after FC1? So there are many moving parts to this. To be honest, I'm a little disappointed with the critiques about FC1's content, because there are infinite SP and MP possibilities with the ME, PWCG and Vander's new EMG. Lots of fun to be had regardless of what we put into it. Many say PWCG is better than our Career so I felt it would be less of an issue it apparently is. But everyone is entitled to buy or not buy. I'm just explaining my side of the story. As I said many times, this was my only option to do anything WWI related any time soon, so I went for it and thought a lot of flyers who owned ROF or owned IL-2 would be interested. No matter what happens, I don't regret it, FC turned out very nice and it's fun to fly. Everyone worked hard on FC1, so I hope I can move forward with another one. Time will tell. Please don't ask me when. It could be next week or next year, I really don't know right now. That's all I can say on the matter at the moment and probably more than I should. Jason Maybe sales have not been that good?
  12. I've temporarily removed the patch from Dropbox and working on fixes as noted above. Will be back up in just a bit.
  13. Skinpack is done. Link is in the original post above.

    After a couple more weeks of struggle I'm beginning to get a handle on Blender. It's not totally accurate since I was unable to find good blueprints for the gun installation (and figuring out how to model the intricacies of the various individual parts is yet a bit beyond my ken 😨) but still, I'm pretty pleased with the results and think it will work to give the illusion that I'm looking for. My intent is to do some "art" pieces using BOx screenshots melded with 3D modeling to pay respect to the ground crews with the internals exposed. They (we) don't get the recognition that the pilots normally do. After more tweaks to the guns, the next project is the engine...
  16. We have been discussing 2K vs 4K skins. I had originally decided to do all skins in 2K. 2K size is approximately 1/4 the size of 4K. My reasoning is that I can't tell much (if any) difference between the two at regular view distance in the game... even when fully zoomed in. As the amount of skins increases, I was afraid that the folders would get very large. My current game skin folder is about 23 GB (with several other squads skins included). I would like to hear what others think. In that vein... we are thinking of restricting a maximum of two individual skins per pilot per plane. Again... thoughts?
  17. @AngryGoat I changed a couple of your skin names as @Luftritter suggested in order to keep with the naming Dicta. Please change them in your files in order to have everyone see them: Changed the "Early" and "Late" DR1s to... ! JG1 FokkerDr1 Goat.dds and ! JG1 FokkerDr1 Goat B.dds. Also changed the lowercase "se5a to uppercase (I don't think it really matters for the game to recognize... just for consistency purposes)... ! JG1 SE5a Goat.dds and changed "Sopwith Camel" to ! JG1 SopCamel Goat.
  18. Good point. I could re-size them to 2K. We would have to make a statement regarding that.
  19. I'm planning on compiling a skinpack for the upcoming Winter 2020 FIF. This will be the first time for FIF on Flying Circus. The skinpack will be similar to what I did for J5's Black September and will be a zip file with all skins in their proper folders. In fact, those who have already submitted their skins to Black September need not submit skins unless there have been changes since then. This is purely voluntary. Custom skins are not required to participate. (I would encourage everyone to install them though... you DO want to be able to see who you are shooting down... don't you? 😈). Please submit links to your skins before Tues Jan 28. The pack will be posted with the link on this OP on Thurs Jan 30. Please see the submission rules here: FIF 2020 SKIN PACK (29 January 2020) UPDATED: Full Skinpack is updated and zipped. Download here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/pfy1nmgxfcv3y41/AACE82augCfpOXhCE4hZ-rzBa?dl=0 This is Flying Circus FIF Winter (V2). There were some mistakes and omissions in the original file. If you haven't yet installed the original file Flying Circus FIF Winter just download and install this one. Hopefully all is fixed 🙄. Sadly... another error. There is a "data" file within the main "data" file. If you installed as is into the game folder, move the secondary "data" into your main game folder and allow overwrite. The Flying Circus FIF Winter (V2) has been fixed but probably too late for today's FIF. If you did install the original file, you don't have to do it all over... download and install Flying Circus FIF Winter Patch(1). Download here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/66c3reqjqpt82np/AAAwVvGuvqfcb6Ui3-q81Jcra?dl=0 Allow overwrite. There were SPAD skins in the Camel folder for 28th Aero Squadron, 93d Aero Squadron, 103d Aero Squadron and 213th Aero Squadron, as well as z 3PG. Please delete them. Also, please delete the skin file called ! JG1 FokkerDr1 Luftritter B from the FokkerDr1 folder (note the "B" on the end. Do not delete the main file that has no "B" on the end). Both are in a zip file with the architecture: data\graphics\skins\*with the individual plane folders* You should be able to unzip it into your IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad game folder and it will auto populate. However, I would suggest unzipping it into a temp folder first just to check and if everything looks good then cut and paste the complete data folder to your IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad game folder. Allow overwrite since many of the files have the same name as prior skins but have been changed. Let me know of any additional mistakes or issues 😏. Salute!
  20. Cutoff date will be Tues Jan 28 with paint pack posted Thurs Jan 30.
