FIF 2020 Winter Skinpack

Recommended Posts

I'm planning on compiling a skinpack for the upcoming Winter 2020 FIF. This will be the first time for FIF on Flying Circus. The skinpack will be similar to what I did for J5's Black September and will be a zip file with all skins in their proper folders. In fact, those who have already submitted their skins to Black September need not submit skins unless there have been changes since then.

This is purely voluntary. Custom skins are not required to participate. (I would encourage everyone to install them though... you DO want to be able to see who you are shooting down... don't you?  😈).

Please submit links to your skins before Tues Jan 28. The pack will be posted with the link on this OP on Thurs Jan 30.

Please see the submission rules here:

 

FIF 2020 SKIN PACK (29 January 2020) UPDATED:

Full Skinpack is updated and zipped. Download here:

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/pfy1nmgxfcv3y41/AACE82augCfpOXhCE4hZ-rzBa?dl=0

 

This is Flying Circus FIF Winter (V2). There were some mistakes and omissions in the original file. If you haven't yet installed the original file Flying Circus FIF Winter just download and install this one. Hopefully all is fixed 🙄.

Sadly... another error. There is a "data" file within the main "data" file. If you installed as is into the game folder, move the secondary "data" into your main game folder and  allow overwrite. The Flying Circus FIF Winter (V2) has been fixed but probably too late for today's FIF. 

 

If you did install the original file, you don't have to do it all over... download and install Flying Circus FIF Winter Patch(1). Download here:

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/66c3reqjqpt82np/AAAwVvGuvqfcb6Ui3-q81Jcra?dl=0

 

Allow overwrite. There were SPAD skins in the Camel folder for 28th Aero Squadron93d Aero Squadron103d Aero Squadron and 213th Aero Squadron, as well as z 3PG. Please delete them. Also, please delete the skin file called   ! JG1 FokkerDr1 Luftritter B    from the FokkerDr1 folder (note the "B" on the end.  Do not delete the main file that has no "B" on the end).

 Both are in a zip file with the architecture: data\graphics\skins\*with the individual plane folders*

You should be able to unzip it into your IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad game folder and it will auto populate. However, I would suggest unzipping it into a temp folder first just to check and if everything looks good then cut and paste the complete data folder to your IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad game folder. Allow overwrite since many of the files have the same name as prior skins but have been changed.

Let me know of any additional mistakes or issues 😏.

Salute!

Hope these are right, I've never done this before with skins I've cretaed

Let us know if you ever change the file names, Daedallus.  Some of them are hard to tell they belong to you.

Hi Luftritter

Would it help you if I renamed them (presumably the link stays the same?)

OK just changed one and the link does stay the same😉 so I'll do the others

Always learning something new because of this game, love it!

Well if you do rename them, if everybody who has already downloaded them with the old file names doesn't rename their files, they'll never see them when you use them. However, since your post hasn't been up that long it might not be that big a deal.  As for me, I'll just re-download them under the new names.  But it's something to keep in mind, for the future.

S!

Ok, Just under the wire here. 

 

Current SCG skinpack is going to just be my skins for now, since Sinerox was uncertain as to what he wanted to do for a skin and we are still working on getting the rest of SCG into FiF

Hopefully I will be able to expand this for next season.

OP Revised to combine skins into pack.

These don't have to have separate links guys; one stop shopping is nice  😊  a single all inclusive zip file for individuals or squadrons would make things simpler, and you could update it over time just by editing the link, and then maybe make a new post saying something to the effect of "O.P. updated for revised and/or additional files (date)".

Keep 'em coming, your work much appreciated!  👍

S!

Hey, sorry, a tad late but here's the 3rd PG pack. Kind of a biggie - 50 SPAD skins!

I hope it is not too late:

Hi @1PL_Lucas

Looking at the new skins for 1PL, please make sure to only use the German cross versions when flying German aircraft.

As per the rules: https://forum.jg1.org/topic/7503-flanders-in-flames-ruleset-for-flying-circus/

Paint schemes that show incorrect national markings are known as “capture skins” within the context of the tournament.  “Capture skins” are a violation of sportsmanship, respect, and fair play. Their use within the FIF tournament is prohibited and will incur penalties.

All pilots should also be aware the German 1PL markings still have the Polish Air Force checkerboard (szachownica lotnicza) on them.  It may be an issue with friendly fire.

@Vonrd, please removing all capture skins from the official pack when finalizing the new update.  Thanks!

Also, @Vonrd

I also think the 3rd Pursuit Group skins for the Sopwith Camel are a mix up.  They look like SPAD skins to me, placed in the Sopwith Camel folder.

Perhaps @DeFreest Larner can confirm this.

The skins in question are: 28th Aero Squadron, 93d Aero Squadron, 103d Aero Squadron and 213th Aero Squadron, as well as z 3PG skins.

Thanks!

German aircraft skins with szachownica lotnicza are not in the skinpack. All other 1PL skins included.

Can't seem to find my skins in the skinpack?

Sorry Daedallus, you flew too close to the sun and your skins melted... oops... that was your son Icarus. My condolences for your loss.

Your skins are in the Flying Circus FIF Winter Patch(1). Just download that. No need to do the whole thing again.

The 29th January skin pack download still ha a problem: there's a data\graphics folder, but also a data\data\graphics folder.

 

Sound of palm striking forehead... 😭

The file has been fixed but probably too late.

S! Vonrd,

Are the JG1 new skins also in this FIF 2020 Winter skins?
I don't see any of my new skins inside this package?
I know that Butzzell did and posted some new skin for the Halb 2 seater and the DR1!

Cheers,
Gen

Did you download the main Flying Circus FIF Winter (V2)? They are in there. The Flying Circus FIF Winter Patch(1) is just a patch and doesn't include all the skins. Also, there was a mistake on the main file with a "data" file within the main "data" file. See the original post.
