View Full Version : www.combatace.com alternative for IL2 skins READ

04-10-2005, 08:48 PM
We now have a dedicated section, and more bandwidth.

I had offered IL2 skins a permanent home for quite a while now and Sharx never got a hold of us. www.combatace.com (http://www.combatace.com) was created to save sites (combat flight sim sites) from blinking out of existence; maybe we were too late for IL2 skins but never again. If you have created or have downloaded a skin, please register and upload it at www.combatace.com (http://www.combatace.com)

Give credit to the author of course but more importantly preserve it for history, let's stop complaining and do something about it. Now we all have a place of our own where we can upload and download and never fear it going away. Missions and campaigns also!

We will have a dedicated forums section shortly to keep track of all the new files as well as discuss IL2 related events let's do it! Please pass this info along!

Tons of bandwidth and fast upload and download times , this site is not for profit but for preservation.

Jonesing: common term used to describe an urge to fulfill and addiction. Usually, referring to nicotine.

Ex. "I'm really jonesing for a smoke"

Been over there myself. Very impressed!
Find myself going back daily now to check for skins and forum info. I only used to do that on IL2 skins, so somebody is doing something right!
If all the highly skilled skinners out there start uploading their work I'll never be off it!!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

Wah, nearly second page: bumpity bump bump bump.

It's already been a handy resource for me, I found some skins I've been looking for since time began http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

MK222 - if I may make a suggestion, though. Split up the PF/FB campaigns & Single Mission directories into two separate folders (One for campaigns, one for single missions). At the moment there's no real way to distinguish between missions and campaigns unless the author specifically mentions so in the title or description. And for the most part they haven't.

Once the directories are swamped with missions (which they will be, it's a good place to go), it's going to get very difficult to wade through all the missions if you're just interested in static campaigns.

I like the site http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif and use it quite a bit. I have one bit of constructive criticism though;

Please start compiling skins according to aeroplane type.

Do it soon too. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif At the moment there are only roughly 80 to 100 skins PF and IL2 skins on the site. If it does take off and existing skinners start uploading large numbers of skins it is going to get incredibly cumbersome and difficult for gamers to find what they want. I really cant see myself scrolling through a couple of hundered skins to see what is available unless it is properly categorised.

Thaks for the site though, I hope it takes off for you!
