    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. Your right @Snaggle I don't use it in game either, only planning. With "No operation plan survives the first enemy contact" in mind I draw 2 separate lines (one N and one S) from an easy recognizable point like e.g. the city Lens or the river in 0205 and make a mental note of the 2 directions. With that I can always find back my way to the planned home base /friendly airfield. If I have enough time I put the directions in my custom_photo.dds and stick it in the cockpit. Yeah, I know I'll have to fly without my sweetheart.😩
  2. I favor 4K skins, with more pixels it is easier to be precise. The idea of skins is recognition and not "Look what I can do with Photoshop". Therefor I agree with Luftritter, I see no reason to have more than 1 skin per A/C in a early and late version. Maybe the early version can be less colorful but still have the typical identification markings and color of that individual pilot.
  3. No problem with finding the airfields, orientation and navigation is part of the fun. Take that away and what fun is left for the recon, trench map and pick-up pilots? They already have an inglorious life to live. Maybe pilots can try to use this: https://il2missionplanner.com/#arras
  4. I like the reds. @Luftritter, you can have my chicken, I'm vegetarian. I like the switching of sides within a campaign, it gives those poor Entente units a chance to fly our beautiful aircraft 😇
  5. @Luftritter and @Vonrd, reason for raising the question is that I remembered that it was a subject in the past, and because I was creating FiF skins better ask before I have to do the work twice. Not to stir up the mud or create fuss. Funny enough I share Lufts opinion. I agree about the size it takes up in total compared with the capacity of the drive. Mostly it are JG1 skins who are in 2K. Not reducing the size is easier in the creating process and more beautiful. Especially the stencils and personal drawings benefit from it. Has it an influence on the performance and visual effects in-game? If Vonrd is okay with it I’m in favour of going for 4K skins (that said and looking at some 120 2K skins in process 🤔)
  6. Already from Black September a lot of skins are in 4K. Don't see a limit for the size of the skins in FiF? We usually go for 2K, but the outside world? Would anyone not use skins above 2K because of the space it takes on the drive?
  7. Oh chips, “Shadowfax, show ME the meaning of haste”
  8. I feel a change of name in the air .......
  9. I jumped in the VR world with an Rift S. I was flying last Sunday in a Pfalz and got the question from Hotlead about my fuel level. Because the indicator was still on 2, I put out my hand to knock on the gauge (step 1 when things stop working). Then I realized I was not in the cockpit 🤭. Still a lot to fine tune and learn the buttons or go with VA. Right now, checking my 6 is the biggest problem with the operation from last summer: 90 degrees is the max. Rotate the entire seat seems the only solution for now, or only fly 2-seaters.
  10. 😤stupid me. I could have saved the file as a .psd. Probably the conversion made it solid with the background. The file was from the RoF Spad13 Template, just as Larner had done. I wish I could have saved you the trouble. Lesson identified and learned 🧐

    Not that blender 😀, I tried to look up the registration number. Failed. Data is lost. I found this nice row below, but it stops after BL+IP, no IQ. Next one is a IY Seibel. I would assume that the IQ is aG2 with the WNr. 14230. BL+IA Messerschmitt Bf109 G-2 WNr.14214, BL+IB Messerschmitt Bf109 G-2 WNr.14215, BL+IC Messerschmitt Bf109 G-2 WNr.14216 BL+ID Messerschmitt Bf109 G-2 WNr.14217, BL+IE Messerschmitt Bf109 G-2 WNr.14218, BL+IF Messerschmitt Bf109 G-2 WNr.14219 BL+IG Messerschmitt Bf109 G-2 WNr.14220, BL+IH Messerschmitt Bf109 G-2 WNr.14221, BL+II Messerschmitt Bf109 G-2 WNr.14222 BL+IJ Messerschmitt Bf109 G-2 WNr.14223, BL+IK Messerschmitt Bf109 G-2 WNr.14224, BL+IL Messerschmitt Bf109 G-2 WNr.14225, BL+IM Messerschmitt Bf109 G-2 WNr.14226, BL+IN Messerschmitt Bf109 G-2 WNr.14227, BL+IO Messerschmitt Bf109 G-2 WNr.14228, BL+IP Messerschmitt Bf109 G-2 WNr.14229
  12. Hello @Luftritter, I use the one from the RoF templates set which fits the FC one, below a link to my dropbox with the 2K and 4K wireframe (only). https://www.dropbox.com/s/70fv3w2x0uptqc2/Spad13_Wireframe.xcf?dl=0 I hope this is what you looked for and that it works. PS I used to use Mediafire for storage but that has a nasty way of opening unwanted tabs. Maybe I'll switch to Dropbox.
