Default Non-censored liveries as optional download

I understand some countries have laws against display of the Swastika, and thus the default liveries included with DCS aircraft such as the Bf 109, Dora, and now the Anton, have censored tails. However, those of us who don't live in countries with such legislation, and prefer historical accuracy, would like to have non-censored versions of the same liveries. Often when user-created liveries are released, they do different liveries than what's included, and thus we are typically stuck with censored versions of those liveries.

Since user-created livery packs often include both censored and "historical" versions of the same livery, I see no reason why it wouldn't be possible for "historical" versions of the default liveries to be available for download at release.

they changed the law recently to allow Nazi symbols in entertainment and games in Germany.
article 86a now covers computer games with the social adequacy clause.

so they are fair to use.

does any other nation ban them?

if not then this practise is redundant.

The skins with swastika are in liveries folder. You just have to make a copy of skin folder you want to change, remove the "_s" from skin with swastika and delete the file without it, and store in saved games livery folder so it doesnt get "fixed" with updates.

Is this with the A-8? With the Bf 109 no such liveries exist--only the censored versions.

I only have the Dora...Assumed 109 had both skins in each livery folder too and any new axis plane would have as well.

109 doesn't, unfortunately. User-created liveries from the User Files often come with both historical and censored versions, but for the default liveries like "White 5," we're permanently stuck with the censored version.

But I guess if the Dora ships with both, the Anton will too? I don't have the Dora myself.

Actually you can, if you use JSGME here is a package I created some years ago and still use to date. Afaik it passes integrity check no problem, at least on Burning Skies it does. You can also do it by hand, just add the bf-109k-4_cross.dds and change the lua to include it on the skin.
