No Black Pilot Skins???

Of course there were no NORWEGIAN skins with the F-16s. We have chutes on ours!!! And yes, some made skins for it on release day.

But I stand by OPs request in the WISHLIST section. And thank you PolyChop for making a female pilot. You all should read Sven's reasoning for that.

It seems to me that a lot of you got a lot of grief from your parents when you wrote your letters to Santa...

As for pulling the racist card.... Bad person bad person!!!

We are but one human race!

Then hire some teenager to do it for you! :) Again, we have a black pilot skin in the game already (in the wrong P-51 but...), just not in a jet.

How much do you charge to make one?

Really??? What's the difficult of creating a female model and skin tones?

 

Honestly, I am a black rich person. I don't care to pay extra for the product as long as I am represented.

 

Now I know we’re being trolled. Who the crap would refer to themselves as a “black rich person” but what do I know? I’m just a racist poor kracker....

Way to make a mockery of a very worthy cause freakin troll!

Being bothered about the absence of non-white pilots isn't the same as being bothered about a white pilot.

 

If you walked into a supermarket and observed that all they had on the shelves was Bran Flakes, that wouldn't imply that you had an issue with Bran Flakes - it would just imply that you had an issue with the lack of choice on offer.

 

It doesn't work that way. I could care less what color the pilot is. That's being unbiased. I don't need a choice. I fly in the cockpit and can't see the pilot anyway. For sure the pilot doesn't need to look like me. I don't pamper my ego. I give it nothing.

Ok, the ones asking for mustache and beard are not trolling, right?

Not for you, but it obviously does work that way for others. All of your arguments are predicated on yourself - "I could care less", "I don't need a choice", "I don't pamper my ego"

 

Sometimes there's value in trying to step back and acknowledge other people's perspectives, too.

This thread is more personal than it should be. Whilst it was a reasonable request to begin with it should be like any other wishlist for a product enhancement. It's not a personal mission, no one is representing anyone here. When you ask for something, dont feel offended that not everyone feels the same.

 

I wish people could be more passionate in my IFF threads. :(

Why would anyone need to be “represented” in DCS? The aircraft are the stars of the show.

 

I thought we weren’t supposed to notice gender or skin color? Certainly not here; the question should be “Friend, foe, or non-combatant?”

 

I wonder if this is how it is IRL:

“Gee, op-for is firing on us, but they don’t look diverse enough, so hold your fire.”

It's interesting that in the past few days the top 6 threads feature polite requests, asking for better representation. In terms of gender and race.

Though, I'm understanding more and more, there's a lot of DIY in this community (from skins to UFCs and cockpit builds), perhaps ED, does need to start a new ticket for this. Or, even to bump it up the backlog a bit.

 

A previous workplace I was at was all about listening to people and consumers. When people needed features, it was discussed at length. Sometimes, the backlog would often be re-prioritised and sometimes in keeping with times of change and/or to be competitive.

 

Either way, hot topic, hot discussion. Current. :)

 

But at the very least, ED could communicate that to let us know that they're acknowledging our concerns and wishes, and at least let us know it's something that's being considered or looked into.

 

However, given their deafening silence on the Grim Reapers stuff from a while back, I doubt that's going to happen at all.

I think the pilot body in VR is very well done, the animation is IMHO excellent and the sense of immersion simply works. As for the external views where I can see “my” face I find it a typical generic computer game character. I don’t relate to it, I just see it as the DCS pilot character which happens to be a young white male pilot as most probably are and maybe even the pilot that flew the actual plane which was modelled who knows.

 

I do wonder if a simple quick win of adding a few skin tones and a generic female face would do more harm than it resolves by creating a few stereotype images. If the “white” version is no longer the generic DCS pilot but a representation of a diverse range of players then it falls way short of the mark, suggesting a race all look alike! The potential to offend probably increases unless there is the the capability to customise facial features to a much greater extent. This is why I think people maybe concerned about the resource aspect.

Fair point but when I say something it's just my opinion and applies to me only.

 

My only point is I don't consider it important enough for ED to take time away from what needs to be fixed.

 

 

I think putting your picture in the log book has some merit. The pilot? Not really. All you can see is some neck skin in the jet fighters.

But for me the main place I'd like to see diversity is in radio communications, the more voice actors and the more variety in the voice acting the better.

 

They got their money's worth out of that one guy :p

 

I see the overall thread degenerated rapidly, and we've necro'ed some old phail threads, too! Good job everyone!

Hi all

 

As you all know we already have darker skinned characters in DCS, I am sure we will see more in the future.

 

I have closed the thread as the point has been made.

 

thanks
