Dear Oleg, hope you read this, the number of online Airracers is constantly growing, there is the possibility to put numbers on the planes, but unfortunately only together with a nationality, if you choose "No Country" there are No numbers on the plane! Could you please change this, would be great, and , while doing this, make the numbers BIGGER! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I would , if you want, make basic raceskins for all/most planes to put them into the game, for FREE!

Just give me a note! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Cheers

DaFat1,

I don't think this will be adressed. First of all, Oleg's topmost priority in making this sim is historical accuracy. Therefore, numbers will not be made bigger, I just can't imagine it happening. Not only that, there are so many other more weighty things to be looked at that this request will most definitely slip right down to the bottom of the pile of things to do.

What I DO think would be a good idea is the possibility of chosing a number with three digits as opposed to the choice of just two digits we have right now in the game.

Our racing community is just an invention "on-the-side". It's first and foremost a WWII aircraft sim dedicated to historical accuracy. Though I'm a member of Air Racing myself, I honestly believe that incorporating racing skins into the game would betray that love for detail.

Besides, I'd rather have our community remain a group of "outsider" renegades. I wouldn't want racing to become a part of the sim at the level you suggest. The sim dudes are at times way too serious in my opinion, though I realize that it's mostly because I don't have the time to learn to be one of them. Besides, this sim is what it is because of the constant input regarding flight behavior and historical accuracy.

I prefer the "wild bunch" air racing group that we are, it's more "sub-culture" than the "established" fighter pilot thing "up there".

Yes, take this example of this famous " IOCL's TUSA" skin, one of a well known pilot around here.
