Custom Skins

Post  MJDixon on Thu Dec 11, 2014 12:43 pm

Cliffs of Dover is good and bad for custom skins, good in so much as that it has pretty fancy skins to begin with, and has the correct Squadron codes and lets you pick an Aircraft letter, but not so good in that you can't create a completely custom skin that other people can see (at least not on the ATAG server.), however it seems that you can select your own skin for multiplayer, it's just only you will see it, so it's a bit pointless unless you want to take screenshots/videos from the track files, which is something I do, so thought I might as well have a go. Razz





(Granted a Spitfire from 1938 is a bit pointless from a combat sim point of view, but 19 Squadron were first. Very Happy )

I'll make some for you chaps too if you fancy, though as I said, only you'll be able to see it online (and you'll be in it anyway) - everyone else will see the default skin (which is the one we usually use anyway.)

Here are the finished skins available to download from: MediaFire Download Link

(There might be an advert before the download, but it should count down at the top right then let you proceed.)

Now for the skins:

Yours Truly

Speedy



Skip (just incase)



The skins are designed for the Spitfire Mk. Ia (100 Octane), but should be compatible with all of the other Spitfire variants.

And as an added bonus, four semi-historical 19 Squadron Spitfire Mk Is (the base variant), circa 1938 (two bladed prop and un-armoured windscreen sold seperately, also don't worry, they do have guns - it's just I painted the gunport tape covers the same colour as the camo to give it the pre-war look, though that gives me an idea for a photo recon skin now.  Smile )



To install the skins just extract the 19RAF CloD Skins.rar file and place the Skins folder in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\IL-2 Sturmovik Cliffs of Dover\PaintSchemes (there should already be a Skins folder at that location to overwrite, it should just place the skins in the Spitfire folders, though if you're worried about it actually overwriting stuff you can manually place the skins into their respective Spitfire folders (you'll have to create the SpitfireMk1_100oct and SpitfireMk1a_100oct folders in that case.)

Each of the Personal Skins are clear skins, so you can set the different Squadron/Aircraft/Serial number as usual - the 1938 Skins have the roundels and serial numbers built into them, so you'll have to disable markings if you want to use those (though if you use those in a server without custom skins then everyone else will see a blank default skin.)

Lastly, in order to see other peoples skins on servers that support them, you'll need to go to the Network options in game and activate Custom Skins.

EDIT:



Man flies down the coast in that Spit, people know he's not afraid of anything. Razz
