    I'm active major in the Dutch army. I live in a rural area 500m from the German border. Not married anymore, and I have a son and daughter (2003,2004). They live with me every even week incl the weekend. My great-grandfather (with his wife and kids) left Lower Bavaria at the end 19th century to make a living in the Netherlands.

  1. To me you’re a whizzkid with *.* I have to drag the .dds files after unpacking at location X per folder to the data/graphic/skin/* otherwise they don’t show up.
  2. Yes, I know and @Vonrd is bad side of such a decision, and ruling about other peoples free time is not what I want. My idea was starting from now will eventually filter out the old names (of course under the assumption that my idea was a good one 😊) After all this is the discussion area, say the parliament to hear the opinions of the people .
  3. @vonrd, okay thank you. About the naming, why not: ! JG1 Fw190A3 3Y4 Smr Yes I know of the naming thread but it’s shorter and it will put all the skins per Staffel in the right order, or sorted per Gruppe like this ! JG1 Fw190A3 IY4 Smr Sorry Stab as in RL: “the Brass eats last” My personal emblem also has to be removed in case of a AWOL/MIA, therefore isn’t better that I’ll send you my .psd (actually GIMP format) files so that you can use them in case of and for anybody else who wants a Fw190 skin? The different numbers per Staffel, Gruppe and Stab are included.
  4. @Wittmann, you could try while in the keybinding menu push the brake, either left or right, already before you assign the brake function and then let go of the left/right brake. If the program doesn’t pick it up right away then push the pedal again and hit Retry and let go of the brake again. This also works with some of the other axis than pitch/role.
  5. Because this is meant as the discussion part of skinning 😳, I would like to ask @Schäfer, why to use the skin colours of Jasta 15 for your aircraft? That is at least confusing. Why not the Flying Serpent on a Jasta 10 skin? Probably @GenMarkof007 can show you different options to stay close to your Jasta recognisability (is that even English?)
  6. I've upgraded the skins for my Fokkers D7 and D7F. After @DeFreest Larner posted the skin packages it were these two aircraft which really benefited from his work. The new skins are now visible in the Submission thread with the 2 .dds files attached in the .dds post of my. @Vonrd, please have a look and if okay, would you be so kind to attach the 2 skins to the next skin pack update? Question: what is most handy/convenient do it like this or post new skins and update at the bottom of the thread?
  7. Okay, I've posted 4 skins for my Fw190 family in the submission thread. Only posted the left side view. @Vonrd do you want to see the other angles as well? Anybody else? The Dora skin is fictional of course with a b/w tail as clue to Heinrich's past with J6 and the 3./JG1 Fw190 skin.
  8. Fw190A3 Fw190A5 Fw190A8 Fw190D9
  9. I started working on the Fw190A8 skin because it seemed to me the best A/C to start my BoX career. That led to creating both the checkered black/yellow nose, and the black/white striped nose. Also the dots in the A8 skin had to be created. That skin is now complete and I’ll show it soon. Proceeding with the A5 and A3 is a logical step. To my horror I saw that in the official Il2 skin of the Fw190A5 is a fully worked out skin for the I./JG1 Würgers both in stripes and checkers also dots for the sides in 2 versions are already there 😳. I’ve waisted a lot of time on the A8 😭. The A8 will be in the Reichsband version with B/W stripes, the A5 in B/Y checkered nose and the A3 in yellow (?) nose. Suggestions? NB: To my knowledge the 2./JG1 had their red and black altered to the 1. and 3. Until now I haven’t found proof in photos.
  10. Well done, can’t wait to be on this honourable list soon. I’ll try again this Saturday.
  11. No idea if this is of any help: I have my Buttkicker Gamer 2 connected to a Sennheiser GSX 1000 amplifier with a splitter to my headset. The GSX 1000 has a USB connector to the desktop. The 5.1 speaker set is connected to a Creative Sound Blaster Z sound card. Side note: I’m thinking on building a external fan to my Buttkicker amplifier because it gets real hot inside and has only some small cooling ribs. Burning the inside will cause to have the whole set replaced.
  12. Misread your comment for Couldn't ... Now I understand 😁 Yokosuka MXY-7 Oka (aka Baka)
  13. Well we're lucky originally it was "Cherry Blossom"
  14. In the GB New Skins Submission thread I’ve posted 2 skins for my Fw190A8. The skins are intended for a mid and late period fighter I have more angles available but not sure if this stands the critics (waist of energy and space). The Sturmbock armour plates are painted on the skin, after putting it in the game I found out that the sheet has also separate armour plates. For my next A/C, I’ll go first into the game to have a look what the impact is of the different modifications on the skin. Questions for my skins Not sure about the brightness of the colours and dullness. I did some extra weathering on the hinges and hatches. Wondering if I should do a weathering of the wing/tail edges as well? More general questions Do we want skins for the same aircraft in early, mid and late schemes? I put the JG1 symbol on the tail, for me a good replacement of the haken cross, and makes me easily identified as a JG1 A/C. Can this become a standard? Which angles are necessary: Left-Right-Front Right Low-Aft Left High? Conditions of the pictures: Clouds, Clear sky, Altitude, Back-ground? NB thinking about weathering I cant wait until we have Ki-84 and N1K2 A/C 😜
