i do a lot of mission editing, so I like the country parameter, as it is much easier to select a livery from a short list than from one with dozens of skins.

I'm not saying it's not got its uses Rudel I can see the point of it

I just spent yesterday eliminating the country parameter from all my skins and I have a lot.

I would agree if all the skinners stuck to some sort of convention but they don't. I'm not complaining about it I am grateful for all the beautiful artwork given to us for free. It's just an observation, when I was finding skins for example where the livery was for one country and the "country" parameter was for another (it happens a lot).

I was finding some beautiful skins I didn't know I had

Horses for courses & God help us if we were all the same, it just does not suit my needs that's not to say it's not really useful for others. The brilliant thing is DCS has given us the choice to use the feature or ditch it
