Ummmm.... I have spent 8 hours working on a ptero skin for the ME210 however.... it doesn't display anything in game... Its just a white plane and nothing seemed to fix it. Is this plane unskinable?

******** FOR EVERYONE HAVING THE "GRAY PLAIN NON-PAINTED" MOD ISSUE ******
The issue has to do with the repacking of the jpk file if using WinRAR make sure you repack with version 3.51 anyother has not allowed me to properly repack and just shows the gray non-painted metallic plain metal.....
hope this helps...............
This is a very quick tutorial on properly setting up your Winrar 3.51 to correctly repack PKG files for World of Warplanes.
Step 1: Download Winrar 3.51 (Known working version for WOWP Repack)
Optional Download Location
After your Winrar successfully installs, you will need to change some settings to make your skin mods fully functional in-game.
-Open your Winrar
-Select Options on the toolbar.
-Select the Settings option.
-Change to the Compression Tab and click on Create Default
Note: Creating default will make it easier for you, so you don't constantly have to mess around with the options.
- On the Deafault settings [GENERAL] tab make sure that the [Update Mode] is set to Add and Replace items.
- Make sure that compression method is set to Store.
- Don't worry about Archive format. Read Note.
Note: The reason for the compression being set to STORE is because the files inside the PKG files are not compressed at all. So if you compress files inside the PKG, the game will not be able to extract and use the files which is why some will see a clean white version of their plane, or crash with a PKG error.
- When you edit and replace a file, always make sure that Winrar is not compressing. You can check if they are by comparing the two columns in the window.
I hope this will help anyone having issues.
On another note, those of you wishing to add a little more "shine" to your plane. Use colors that are partially transparent, for the technical, make sure you have Alpha channels enabled. Doing so will add more gloss to the plane, although this update adds plenty of shine.

This is what happens when you remove all color and save the file as transparent.ATTENTION: ANY MODDED FILES IN THE WORLD OF WARPLANES FOLDER ARE RE-DOWNLOADED AND OVER WRITTEN ON EACH UPDATE. MAKE SURE TO SAVE A COPY OF YOUR MODDED FILES SOMEWHERE ELSE IN CASE YOU WOULD LIKE TO REUSE AFTER UPDATE.
