Official liveries to be dowloaded from the site


Recommended Posts

I have hundereds of official skins installed that came with the game itself. I don't use most of them. 

ıt would be good the modules come with a single default livery and we would be able to select and donwload desired liveries from the official web site.

If you don't mind me asking and with respect to your wish, but why would you want this? Does this use a lot of storage space? (I never checked).

 

Personally, I like it that we have a few liveries to choose from, without having to download them first. In fact, for the AI aircraft, I wish we had some more liveries to choose from.

That would effectively limit MP servers to one skin, or force them to have their clients download specific skins.

 

In times like these, where SSDs are dirt cheap, there is literally no upside to forcing a limitation like this unto the user.

I'm in favor of this. Like the OP, there are liveries on aircraft that I never use and never see. The CE, Yak-52, F-14A, Sabre, MiG-15, MiG-19, I've never either flown or flown against. I'd only be interested in the Iranian F-14A skins, for the appropriate variant.

SSD are cheap, sure, but that's still no reason to bloat them with unnecessary data that'll never be used. Leave livery packs as an additional installation option in the Module Manger, everyone's happy.

As for MP servers, everyone can use whatever livery they want, but if other people don't care about the aircraft, they also won't care about its livery. I imagine people flying in the Cold War server would install all of the liveries I don't want, for example, so that solves the issue with MP servers.

I don't understand why it can be a problem in MP. Everybody can see his own MP scene. If a player cares about the liveries, then he can install all of them. what i see on my own monitor screen doesn't affect other players' experience. I can see one single livery whereas others can see dozens

Well, not that it affects me, but while space may be cheap, bandwidth might be another matter.

 

There's skins in CoreMods that are *far* too big for what they are and definitely should be a lot smaller.

I could see why people would gripe about having to dl them, especially if they're on a poor/slow internet connection.

A question, since I'm away from my gaming rig and i never looked into it: if i do not have a module, do I have all the related "standard" skins? If do not own the tomcat, do i have all the skins downloaded since the moment the module was released in DCS?

yes it doesn't matter if you have it or not. all official skins are dowloaded

You download them exactly *once*, unless you reinstall your entire game. Even if I was still on a 10 MBit line or whatever, a new module with, say 5 GB of volume wouldn't take more than 90 minutes.

I mean, yeah, sure, whatever - doesn't affect me, but I'd see a request like this way down the bottom of the developer's timeline.

+1 on this. For me, neither disk space nor bandwidth are that much of an issue. I simply dislike bloating and love realism and a lot of modules come with a ton of fictional liveries i can't get rid off.

Would love if there was one (non-fictional) default skin with each module and everybody can add as many as he likes on top. If i wanted additional accurate squadron liveries, i'd download them. If someone wanted some fictional livery, he downloads them. No one would lose anything here, it's just that things would be more modular.

Thank you! I guess it's time for spring cleaning the hard drive from unneeded skins.

+1 on your proposal, makes absolute sense.

Keep in mind that if you delete extra liveries from CoreMods, every time you update or repair DCS, it'll re-download them.

F-16 liveries 2,6 GB

F-14 liveries 5,7 GB

F-18 liveries 2,1 GB

Christen Eagle 2 GB

MiG-21 2,4 GB

...

just in CoreMods. Bazar folder for AI liveries (afaik) got another 12 GB for me.

 

That's a big issue for people with storage problems and/or horrible internet bandwidth i guess.

For me it would be deleting dozens of folders just to have them automatically force downloaded again each update. What a waste of time.

 

Provide one default livery per module on install. Put the others up as a free DLC pack per module which people can install via the module manager. Should save ED a heap of bandwidth too for their servers.

No it wouldnt. It would work the same way as it would if others didnt have a custom skin you are using at the moment - revert to the default.

I have the steam version so I'm not sure about this but I will keep it mind, and and the current rate of update release (which I'm comfortable with), it's ok.
