[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.

This is a bump for the official JG1 Paint Pack.

In order to have all skins, you must first download the two "Full Monty" packs.  And then download each of the updates to the main pack.

In order to keep this thread clean, all correspondence will be moved here: https://forum.jg1.org/topic/7847-official-jg1-skinpacks-discussions/

When a new skin pack update is posted, the first post will be modified with the new link, and this thread will be bumped.

All,

The Flying Circus paint pack has been updated - 11 May 2020:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/lt3ia5dzke3myka/2020-0511_JG1FCPP.zip?dl=0

This update is a "Full Monty" skin pack.  It replaces and supersedes all of the previous FC packs and updates.  It also adds new skins.

It is highly recommended that all JG1 pilots download this new "Fully Monty" skin pack, as it will be the basis for all future FC paint updates.  Our apologies in advance for the size.

Please allow the paint pack to overwrite all previous skins.  If there are any errors present, please let me know.
