View Full Version : Could "Skin Download Off" = "Markings On?"

One problem that I've seen myself and heard from others involves an occurence when you have skin download turned off in online play is that planes will appear as being unmarked if the other player has turned Markings Off in order to use a custom, pre-marked skin.

Would it be possible to turn Markings On from our perspective whenever we turn off skin download? That would avoid this problem entirely.

He knows that. What hes asking is if theres a way to make it so that when you select "NONE" it'll add markings for other peoples PC's so they can tell who is who. Been wondering the same thign myself, thanks for bringing it up.

The other party will have to select a country for markings to show up. Of course to the person flying it it wont be as pretty but to the guy with skin downloads off he should see it as identified as which country the other party has selected. Hope that makes sence

Actually, that's incorrect, you are thinking of DF servers on which I never fly (boring!!!!). I was referring to some VEF missions that I've flown and you don't get to select the country there.

You can, however, flip the switch that turns markings off in order to use your custom skin and that presents a problem to folks that have skin download turned off.

As I said...

I use a lot of custom skins but prefer to only use unmarked versions and allow the game to apply nationality markings to avoid this problem. I'm always thankful for custom skins artists who include versions without nationality http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Yep, that works.
