So, I decided to take my newly skinned (thanks to Mars and a quick reset of my res_mods folder) P-39N out for a spin, and see how it looked in game.

I can tell you, I was not disappoint. I had my second best game ever just 1k points shy of my record, picked up an Ace Medal, and made a pile of credits/free XP/and tokens.

Of course this is all thanks to hawkeyededic makin my plane look horrifically sexy with it's mismatched propeller blades, separate wing paints, and ghastly nose art.

 

tl;dr-Use hawkeye's skins. #NotAnAd #NotAPaidSponsor #JustCamoIt

All I did was read the instructions on hawkeye's website. He gets all the credit.

Even still though, for whatever reason me reading them didn't get it done so you get a gold star for assisting damage :D And I really do appreciate you taking the time to help out. Sometimes all it takes is someone else reading you through the same thing to get it squared.

Seriously though, the skin looks phenomenal and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants their plane to look unique on screen. Just bear in mind, nobody else sees it.

Looks great, plays better. What more could you ask for?

Thanks Lambo, Glad you got it working and are enjoying it.

 

I agree, a nice paint job can make a plane play much better.

I have a question about these custom skins?

Are they visible for your eyes only?

What i mean by that: If you apply a custom skin, can other players see this skin ingame or will they just see the regular skin?

Your eyes only.  Unless they have the same skin installed?  Either way, it’s client side.

Like bubba and I said, custom skins are only visible to you. 

Custom skins also don't provide any additional concealment bonus, so if you want that you'll still have to run the in-game camo, but you can run this over top of it so you get the bonus but your plane looks how you want it to look.  If I remember correctly, any other same-type plane will also have this camo on it because the game just applies this to any P-39N it sees, not just your aircraft. I could be wrong on that part though.

There's no point in rulling the skies if you can't look fly while at it
This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:
