Hi Reflected,
since the last update it isn't possible to start the Big Show Campaign as right at the start there is an aircraft parked on the taxiway in front of a shed. As soon as the mission starts a vehicle drives directly into this aircraft and explodes blocking the taxiway. So I can taxi around it but the all the AI are stopped so the mission cannot advance.
Hope you can help,
Thanks Ibis.

Thanks for the report. Yes, it’s the result of the problem I mentioned before. The fixed version is already in ED’s hands.

Looks like there are further problems with the spawn points, but I’ll need a few more days to recheck and test all missions. Maybe not in time for the next update. Sorry about that.

The quick fix today has solved the "player's aircraft explodig" kinda problems, but since then, I revised all units and parking spots, and submitted a more in-depth change to ED, where all units spawn where they should. I also moved the static objects further from the spawn points, and the cherry on top is a performance increasing trick for big bomber formations. I hope it will be released soon. Thanks for your patience!

Hi All,

I have a few dozen P-51 Mustang skins in the user files section. Since I made them, I learned a thing or two about texturing as well as how PBR works, so I realized they weren't as good as they could be. Therefore, I updated all of them:

- I fine tuned some of the colors to be more realistic
- I adjusted the albedo of black and white. Black was too dark, white was too light. Now they look more natural.
- I improved the weathering layers, corrected some texture errors in the template
- Most importantly, now all metal surfaces behave as fully metallic, and I played with the roughness to achieve a natural look. Likewise, all painted surfaces are now fully dielectric.
- I also learned that most part of the P-51's wings and rudder was painted with DuPont aluminum lacquer, then polished. Of course, this paint eroded with time, but it was not fully dielectric to begin with (like on the stock skins), it had mostly metallic properties, and the difference between the lacquer and unfinished aluminum was more subtle.

Without further ado, you can download my Mustang skins here. I updated the files, but didn't bother taking new screenshots. Here are a few pictures to give you an idea. I sent the skins to ED so that my campaigns get updated for you automatically.

My new F-14 Tomcat campaign is nearing completion, so I'll let you in on another secret: graywo1fg, the voice of Jester kindly agreed to help me out with some voice overs. So, while playing the campaign, you will not only hear the stock callouts from the backseat, but he will participate to some of the conversations, and be an active part of the missions.

I have more good news: the voice of the player, that is you, will be feefifofum. His voice sounds soo cool through the radio, exactly my idea of a fighter pilot.

Here's an example below. The reason why you need to hedge hop through the valleys, well, that's a secret I won't let you in on. You'll find it out when you play the campaign

More Sabre updates: I tweaked the Hunters over the Yalu campaign skins a bit more, after I learned that the center section of the Sabre's wings was not bare metal, but painted and polished - like on the P-51 Mustang. I updated my skins accordingly, and submitted them to ED. So hopefully when the next update comes, the skins will look like this for those of you who own the campaign.

The March 4 OB update contained many fixes for my WWII campaigns, it made all of them fully 2.5.6 compatible. No more spawn issues or collisions - I hope. If you do experience something strange, please let me know, I'll jump on it right away.

On top of the fixes, all of my campaigns got my updated P-51 Mustang skins. I hope you'll like them
