Default Skins Issue

is there any way to fix the way some user skins are displayed, there seems to be an issue with a lot of them not showing correctly. a similar issue with the Huey and mi 8 skins can be solved by changing some of the file names, is this possible with the sabre.

Nope. The usermade skins, if they seem like there's a ghosting effect of another paint behind the one you're using that is a default USAF, it's because the Sabre went from using SPEC files to RoughMets in the last update. This is.actually really great and kudos to ED for doing it. But the drawback is that if the usermade skins used a custom SPEC file they will need to be updated to use a custom RoughMet. I'm in the process of updating mine but it's a time consuming process. It doesn't just switch over. So For my paints, I'm taking the opportunity to make updates to them while I work through the list. Others would need to do similar to their paints. I have 3 done so.far.

Love the ripples and textured panels. Good job!

The MiG-15 received the Roughmet treatment as well.


Rick, would you consider doing JASDF liveries for the Sabre? Please.

Akatsuki,


If there's only one you could have (not a demonstration team paint) which would it be? No promises, but I'm interested.

I'm devastated!! None of my SAAF skins are any good. Please point me in the direction of what I need to learn to fix this problem. I do not want to be a skin artist, just want to fix the skin issue.

Awesome!
8th Squadron. Later Sabre were painted in grey and i could not find pictures of 8th sq in bare metal, so, here's a pic of a model kit. That scheme would be nice.
Also added a close up of the squadron emblem.
