This mod is a texture revamp of the defautl P-51D skins within DCS.  it is an attempt to bring the Mustang's graphical fidelity closer to ED's latest texture standards.


Version: 1.0.1 (10/16/21)


This is a WIP personal project.  That means that working on this depends and uses my time, so I'm not going to be consistent.  And the WIP also means that this mod will continually be updated!  That means for the latest version with the newest features and latest bug fixes, you need to check in here or the DCS Userfiles occasionally.  I will make a post here for every update I make.
This thread is primarily for bug reports from you guys, feedback, and progress updates from myself.
"Progress updates?  Like what?"
I will try to do major updates in phases.  Planned features upcoming, in lose order, are: additional/modified weathering, increased texture resolution, completely overhauled rivet and fastener scheme, followed by an overhauled normal map.  These last two are pretty far off.  We'll see how this goes.  As I work on these, I'll probably post little snips of the work in here.

NOTE: NOT ALL SKINS FOR THE 51 ARE CURRENTLY INCLUDED.  MORE MAY COME LATER.
Modified default skins currently include:
RAF 19 Sqn Jun 44
RAF 64 Sqn Jun 44
RAF 112 Sqn
RAF 122 Sqn Jun 44
RAF 129 Sqn Jun 44
RAF 306 Sqn Jun 44
RAF 315
USAF 84th FS
USAF 363rd FS
USAF 364th FS
USAF 375th FS
USAF 485th FS

Even though I don't use stock skins really, these look awesome on previews and If they're made by the venerable Master-Mustang-Nitpicker himself ;), It would be a shame not to have them in one's DCS install. Downloading now! Thanks a lot.

EDIT: after a quick test flight, I do have an improvement suggestion, however. You textures seem to be lacking the fake ambient occlusion layer in the wheel wells (haven't looked into radiator ducts yet). That does cause an effect where they appear lit flat all around with no depth or shading present. Originals were better in this regard - comparison shots below (yours on top, stock ones below).

Oh, good spot!  I'll be sure to fix that.  I'll try to remember to get this fixed for all the skins currently in before next Monday at the most.  I'll make a post here when it's uploaded.

This will be the first addition, or rather the start, of the changelog 🙂
