when we have Specialized MP events in my group we put a Pre-Assembled pack online to be installed before joining the server, other wise you'll see the default textures.

That method alone works the best IMHO.

Integrating a System, where A User can join a Server and select his custom skin and the server has to coordinate sending it to everyone else at the tune of 50-500+MB Per Livery would start to stack up, plus it would be Very troublesome when you got these users that wanna do nothing but show off non-combat liveries to everyone in the server and they'd keep switching liveries putting a strain on the server.

Hey Skate, a quick side question regarding custom skins in mp..

Normally you would install a personal custom skin in .../savedgames/liveries/....
So when a skin pack is provided, do these go in the savedgames as well, or do they get installed within dcs?
I guess there would have to be net communication to show that Player X is using a partucular personal skin, different to Player Y.

Cheers!

@gus
Not when comes to nitwits painted flying circus style or with anime teen girls on them. There are dozens of REAL squadrons ingame already. Don't need the fantasies flying around forcing you to download their gaudy, tasteless crap, or everytime he updates his kill tallies, and that is what this ends up in. Been there, done that already in various games/clans in the past.

That's a lot of extra data to push to every client in the event of a skin change.
