MY first skin!!

Postby CLASH » Wed Sep 29, 2004 1:25 am

I finally figured this out somewhat!!..BBgun will have to help me with the rest of it though!! LOL...I was able to take the picture of my Dad..and use that for the pilot skin!!..and since he is from Alton Iowa..called it "Iowa Boys Dream"..since he didn't fly 51's in the War. He told me how he had painted his head set red on one side during training..because the set he had crackled really loud on one side..and it didn't bother him on the left ear..so I painted his headset red on one side :-)I also was able to put the smoke trails on the guns..after getting them backwards 6 times or so!!! hope ya like it!! and it inspires you too jump in on one yourself!!ImageImage

First - glad you're getting started clash. I guess I'll have to think about getting IL2/IL2FB/IL2PF pretty soon. And I'm no skin/art expert - just someone who was interested, gathered info, and took a whack at it. Just like you.Faint,Hmmm - not sure I like the pre-painted highlights on the skin - its pretty old-tech and Combatsim2-ish. Doesn't IL2 provide reflectivity and lighting effects on their skins?BB

As you can tell by Clash's screenshots.. not really. In high/perfect mode there is some reflection modeled but not enough to look realistic if you've just got a grey skin.I think the guys at GAVCA have the best 'stang skins for Il-2, incredible detail..http://www.gavca.com/modules.php?name=D ... oad&cid=31

Dang, that's too bad.The changing highlights over my wing as I change my view angle wrt the sun is one of the better features of the WB engine.BB

The panel detailing is very good Jazz but i've seen better base aluminum templtes than that Jambock one...even Leadspitters base template provides reflectivity.
