[Vonrd's original post is below] I'm hoping that these will be the "Official" JG1 skinpacks... one each for Great Battles and Flying Circus. The naming of the skins had become somewhat haphazard. Butzzell and I, along with input from the JG1 community, came up with a naming convention (actually mostly Butzz 🍺). Here's an explanation of it with 3 examples: ! JG1 Bf109G2 Smr Yellow 11.dds ! JG1 Bf109G14 Wntr Stab Geschwader CO.dds ! JG1 FokkerDr1 Luftritter B.dds There is a single space between entities... no underscores. ! This will place our skins at the top of the list (at least until someone else ups the ante with multiple exclamations). JG1 This will group all of our skins together. Bf109G2 I decided to stick with the name exactly as it is in the plane's folder for consistency, you can always refer to the folder when doing a skin. Smr / Wntr Self explanatory (some planes don't have winter skins so they won't have this in the name). Yellow 11 / Stab Geschwader CO The individual plane. B Subsequent iterations of the same plane for the same pilot will have the suffix B, C, D... etc. All skins have been renamed to this convention. The unfortunate thing is this will require the deletion of ALL of the prior JG1 skins (with the exception of Baron's skins. I didn't re-name his and it's up to him if he wants to re name them to this convention). The easiest way to delete them is to use the Windows Explorer search bar in (Wherever you have it)\1C Game Studios\IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad\data\graphics\skins. Just type JG1 in there and it should bring all of them up. Select all, then ctrl/click to deselect the ones you want to save (Baron's). Then delete. These two skin packs (and maybe another one for Tank Crew if we get that far) will be the Master packs (Ver. 1) and will not be changed / altered. Any additions / changes by, for example, new pilots or promotions will be addressed by updates (Ver. 2... etc.) which will add and / or overwrite files. The bomber skins are a bit of a mess and will have to be dealt with at a future date. I decided to leave them in since they can still be used. It's just that they haven't been culled to remove non participating pilots and letters changed to reflect pilot shuffling. When I do get around to it they will also probably need to be deleted prior to updating. This is the best I could come up with and I foresee problems for those who don't regularly read our forums and don't delete the old files and install the new but there is no way around it. If someone could please check the files for errors (my vision is pretty blurry at this point) I would appreciate it. I propose that we have a "Skin submission" thread for others doing skins, Goat for example, to submit their skins. They can be double checked for compliance with naming convention and packed into an update.
I know I said I wasn't going to alter the "Master Packs" but I did so many changes (and I lost track of what I had done) to the FC skins that I am issuing a complete re-do here. This is ALL the JG1 FC skins to date. Added Etzel skins, updated Klai and darkened colors on almost all skins... the yellow, red and white were too bright. I may have to further adjust them but I wanted to get them out for Black September... speaking of which... I am putting together a Black September skinpack which includes several other attending squads. I will post a link here as well on the FC forum. If you download that there will be no need to download this one since all of our skins will be incluses in the BS skinpack. Here's the JG1 only link: File: Flying Circus - JG1 [link removed] This is in the OP above.
