Here, I16fan tries to be very Fancy, and brilliantly succeeds! Unlike most Fancy screenshot attempts, here you can actually really see what you are about to Download, both fuselage and wing top. Awsum! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

...And this seems to be a creative way of showing *both* the Left and Right wing skin, assuming both aircraft have the same skin, and this lets you see the skin appaerance from *both* the External View and Cockpit View even before you download it. This is Amazing.

Really good idea. So many times the skin shot looks good from a particular angle or distance but is disappointing in-game. Nice skin too http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Yep wev'e been doing it with a few skins recently, this one of I16 fans skin lets you see the top and bottom of his P40, the bigger screen shots are often posted in The paint scheme forum on this site http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif So if you want a close up first go look there.......

Well, for the P~51 screenshot, you can see what the skin looks like from both External View and Cockpit View because you are looking at the other plane from inside the player plane, and looking across the wing of the player plane.

I Don't know how ya'll did this, but well done fellas. How hard is it to get the AI wingman to behave properly to get the EXACT....

*...Or did you two ( i16fan + TaylorTony ) fly together in a Server to get the right positioning. If so, a new meaning for formation flying over the FB.


(1) Distance from player aircraft where the AI wingman is as large as possible yet fits within canopy frame obstructions.

(2) AI wingman orientation:: AI wingman bank to see enough wing top and still see the side of the wingman's fuselage.

(3) For aircraft with lots of canopy frame, how to get the AI wingman to fit between canopy frame struts. Distance and zoom could mix together to provide a solution.

That P~51 screenshot is the Perfect screenshot for giving the most visual information of a skin. I bet it took forever to do--and that given the P~51 obstruction free bubble canopy.

Is it me or is I-16fan making good strides with his skinning quality?

Those P-40s look great.

Nothing so difficult, I use photoshop http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif, first i go off looking for the right atmosphere, play round with time of days etc to get the lighting effect i am after then go external, set the plane up where i want the shot and which side i want illuminated... I take several pics. I then return to the cockpit and fly the aircraft and orientate my cockpit view to where i can forsee the aircraft in the window being.. and again take several pictures, in total about 20 shots..
Once done I view them, pick what will work and lasso copy the plane. Opening the out of the cockpit shot i paste the plane as a layer, rescale it and move it round to where works.. Next i trim off the surrounding sky left on it leaving the prop blur in place...when thats done and i am happy i trim the nose and wing so it appears behind the canopy frame, lasso the prop blur,cut it then replace it back where it was and reduce its opacity down to where it is see through and looks right, in this case i also darkened it too, finally i lassoed the canopy in all 3 places pasted them back and reduced the opacity to let you see through it and make it look right http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.... Job donehttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gifhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gifhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif want to see some more i have done? They take me about 30 mins but i feel they sell your skins and show them in a way that lets you see the wings too, Nothing worse than a lovely skin but looking out at a blotchy wing http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

These are some earlier ones, I actually painted RED 3 just for the screenshot for RED 19 that I Uploaded http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I used only one of the shots, the dark background version, the other I rejected. There all available at http://www.il2skins.com/?action=list&authoridfilter=TonyT&ts=1076095470&comefrom=credits if you want them, i did think of doing a wallpaper page, what you think?

Incredible. Awsum. I am SPEECHLESS. Thanks for sharing these. Very inspiring.

Have you ever done a screenshot with instrument panel turned away from setting sun and it turns pink? (best effect on MiG3 I think)
