Many thanks for the work of creating and consolidation!!! Downloaded all of them yesterday and installed after cleaning up all existing skins, they are looking great!!

The only very kind request @Vonrd: I would be really really gratefull if I could also I have an individal Fokker Dr.I skin for me...🤗 

If there are no special constraints with respect to JG1 specific styleguide this skin could be very simple in the good old BH / Jasta 7 style: Overall pure Black with white  rudders & white crosses.... e.g. like this:
https://www.google.at/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=imgres&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwju2q75i6XkAhVCa1AKHduiAScQjRx6BAgBEAQ&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwp.scn.ru%2Fen%2Fww1%2Ff%2F416%2F59%2F4&psig=AOvVaw3EvtDiBeqJ92IcNUhp450E&ust=1567065475195277

and my Profile Logo of course....  and any graphical addon or adaption that brings some JG1 specific touch to the skin would be very welcome 

😉

And of course: For all other planes (e.g. the halbies or the pfalz) I would also be very happy and thankfull for every personal Etzel-skin that I could hav,e but the Dr.I is my absolute favourite u know....

Best

Here's a few (also have Halb done but I forgot screenshot) Which version of Alb do you prefer?

(Greenish tint is an anomaly in the screenshot)

I thought those letters were  to help Luft tell us which wing he just lost.

No, as you can clearly see, it's so I can tell left from right  😄

Seriously though, we should keep this thread just individual submission posts, so the administration folks don't have to scroll through a million posts.

I hope the Admins will move these commentaries to a separate commentary thread.  It is not a bad idea for folks to make comments or post opinions so that we can maintain a standard of quality, to some extent, before the skins are actually added to official packs.

That Pfalz is my favorite....really nice color coordination.  Looking forward to seeing it in the game.  I'll wait for Vonrd to update the main pack so we all have the same file names for your planes.

Up to now, Vonrd and Larner have made all of my skins.  I just got started a week ago and I'm about to release a Pfalz that I did myself.  I'm extremely slow and am probably doing things in an inefficient manner; considering all of the planes everybody puts out, you're at least 10 times faster than I am.   But I am very happy with the results, as it is about 90% done.

S!

Hi @Vonrd, question. The new link is just the posted updates.  Does the main link in the first post get modified too?  

I would prefer not to update the original. It takes too much time for the zip to generate and there's always the possibility that I'll screw the pooch doing it. All updates are just that... "updates"...  I will keep them up on Dropbox with a dated folder. (Once I tackle the bombers though and get that straightened out it will probably need another "Full Monty" and everyone will have to delete the installed JG1 files. This will be the new original file. I'm not actively working on it at present though). 

So, if a newcomer wants the complete JG1 skins, he / she (we can always hope that we'll eventually get a "she"  😏) will have to download the original and all the updates. The updates will be relatively small and quick downloads.

Having initials clearly visible is a good way to quickly identify each other. A new trend?

It was a historical trend! Tons and tons of German pilots did it, but the best example is Jasta 2's Albatros D.Is / D.IIs. Pilots would paint the first two letters of their surname on the fuselage sides as an identifying marking. For example, Erwin Böhme painted "Bö" on his fuselage sides, Karl-Heinrich Büttner painted "Bü", Dieter Collin painted "Co", etc etc etc

The 'J2' way is a good way of avoiding clashing identifying marks as well. For example, you might get Luftritter and Labroisse, or Vikner and Vonrd mixed up if they had just 'L' or 'V', but 'Lu', 'La', 'Vi' and 'Vo' are all pretty easily distinguishable ;) 

 

Another good example is Jasta 5's Albatroses. They used to paint the initial of their surnames on the undersides of the wings.
