Make me a skin! ...please? :D

Recommended Posts

I want it based of the photo in the thumbnail...BUT...
..you are free to use your own imagination too!
It would also be nice if I could have the same style for the DVII and DVIIF as well :)

Reward: 127Tom's seal of approval!

To whom is your question? This is a nasty skin to get right: for example the rear part of the Alb fuselage consists of 6 unconnected parts, to get the triangles perfect cost some time.

I have other skins to do first this week (promises to keep). Hope you're not in a hurry. 

Become a member of JG1 and I'll make you these skins. We have more Europeans in the org, all the more reason to join us.

It's no hurry :) 

And like I said; you can also use your imagination. Doesn't have to be 100 % from the photo.
It's just a reference. 

I flew with the J30 guys this Saturday and they wanted me to fly with them next saturday as well.

And I said yes, so I am kind of "booked". But who knows in the future?

Absolute fine, great team, great guys. I don't know which of them is their "skinner".
It might be better to ask them for a skin, I don't want to fish in their pond.

Just because I saw that you are in CET/CEST thought you might want to join the other European members in flight in FC or BoX.
We have a small WhatsApp group, which we use for arranging Rendez-Vous. Just in case you want to join us in that, you can send me a PM with your phone number and I'll add you to the group.

Lol, don't worry about that! I am not an official member of their squadron. 
Can you make the skin? :D

S! 127Tom.

If you want, I can try to do a skin like the one that you have shown.
If your able to get you hand on the emblem, that might help me!

Cheers,
Gen

Yes, please :) 
No need for emblem  yet (can smack an emblem on later if needed) since I am not a member of any squadron yet

ps: Heinrich, if you want to do also a version, no problem for me.

No problem, go ahead. Be aware of the fault on the starboard side right after the cockpit of the Alb.

S! 127Tom,

Sorry, but many things did happen between your request and now...
Since I'm not able to tell you when I could work on your skin, if @Heinrich wants to have a go, might be a better skin creator than me.
if not, I can't give you any date for now.

Cheers,
GenMarkof

Bump!!! What is taking so friggin long time?! 😛

Tom, please keep in mind what you have asked was a charity from a group that you aren’t associated with. I’m sure your intent of this phrasing was tongue-in-cheek but a more professional, polite method would go much farther.

S! 127Tom,

Like inform in my last post, I didn't start working on it at this time since many things came in the last 2 month...
I did send a message to @Heinrich who is the specialist in skin making for JG1, to see if he would have time to do it.
On my part, I will try to work something in the next few weeks.

I got some new pictures of it this morning.
Are you able to find the emblem on the side of the plane (a clearer picture of it or the emblem in PNG format)... and any info about the top and bottom wings.
At this time, I didn't find any pictures of those parts.

Cheers,
GenMarkof

Gen, here's a couple of pics if you're so generous as to work on 127Tom's skin. I certainly don't have the time or inclination to do so. Also, be aware that the upcoming update may very well break the alpha layers.

S! Vonrd,

Wow, great shots of the top of the wings! A big thank you!
What do you mean by braking the alpha layers?
What would happen with all of the old skins you, Heinrich and others did?

Do you think that this new update should be out soon?
I might wait before starting any new skins!!!

Thanks Vonrd!

Update 4.006 is going to be introducing new lighting effects / reactions for the aircraft of IL2 - essentially, planes are going to look nicer when they 'shine' (probably not the best explanation 😬). The good news is, that 'wet metal' look should be getting replaced, so the new effects should look closer to doped linen when translated to FC! Yay! 

The bad news, is that Jason has said that Alpha layers may need adjusted to match the new effects. We won't know exactly until we see them, but all FC skins might be affected to the point of Alpha layers needing re-done. 

the update should be out either today or tomorrow. Side note: It should be updating FC's current DM as well! Fingers crossed the wing-shedding is less of an issue! 

@127Tom Skins take time and effort to do. Lots of time, and lots of effort. Our unit's new skins (3rd P.G) are about three or four months in the making now, and I'm sure JG1's skins have been similarly time-consuming to make. Not to mention that that particular design on an Albatros is going to be especially difficult to make. You can either sit patiently and wait for Gen to get your skin done, as he so generously offered to do, or you can learn to make skins yourself...

@127Tom and @GenMarkof007I don't have the time for it, already the work with the new alpha layers takes up time and also I'm about to start working on WW2 skins.

No worries @Heinrich... if you have time next time that we see each other, to talk about the new alpha layers, that would be great!

Hi, like I said in my earlier post: I don't need the emblem. You are free to use your freedom on this one.
The photo was just a guideline. It doesn't have to be excactly like the photo. This way you can make it easier on yourself :)

Where is my skin!? This is outrageous! I will hunt you down in the sky for this!!! Uaaarggghh!!

S! @127Tom,

Might have some good news for you... just got some help today (see the post above that @Klaiber posted), tomorrow, I will see if all fits good (my portion was 3/4 done!).
After that, I will work on the last puzzle, the insignia that is halfway done!

I must say, that WE ARE lucky today... if it wasn't for that help, I was coming back with a NO GO message for the skin!

Cheers,
GenMarkof

It looks amazing! Can't wait for it to be finished!
Thanks for the effort ❤️
I hope you understand I was joking / being sarcastic xD
