View Full Version : Simple request: Skins and the FMB

01-15-2005, 06:35 AM
Like many of you I have a large collection of downloaded skins which create variety and increase realism in created missions in the FMB.

The problem lies when set the Player aircraft's skin. When later you return to the mission you made in order to fly it, you find yourself leading a squadron of Finnish Hurricanes in an RAF BoB skin for your aircraft. Since you made the mission, you've changed the skin settings in the QMB or in a campaign.

It would be great for the FMB aircraft skin settings to 'overrule' those of the QMB - a simple change to improve the game. Next patch? Please?

It would be nice to have this and the same thing for selected weapons.

the last skin you flew for any A/C is the skin waiting when you go into the "load-out selection" screen

if you used a "bob" style skin for the Hurricane & then jumped into a game that was a flight of Finnish Hurricanes , you will need to go into your "load-out" selection screen first to change it back


in the FMB you can set a specific skin to any A/C in any flight in the "custom" window

but if you set a flight of "finnish" hurricanes up in a coop using the FMB & you set "custom" finnish skins onto them , only you will see them , if someone else jumps into your coop & uses their own custom skin , that is the one that will show

of course , only if skin DL is set on
