Ba5tard5word and skin contributors:

I got Pirates installed and - yay! - I installed it correctly.

I only have had time to try the first mission but it was a treat (until I got my left float knocked off).

The only thing I wasn't sure about during installation was when the text said to put such and such a skin into what seemed to be multiple skin folders, so I copied them into those folders instead of draggin/dropping into one. Was that right?

I took off the captain's plane as you suggested and noticed it was plain, no real skin that I could tell. That's what made me think I might have messed up the skin part of the install.

It was a nice change of pace and I am looking forward to getting more into it.

Thanks again for all the tutoring over the last few days, and again thanks for all the effort!

ok, cool!

a) when you get the mission briefing, hit "arming" then "aircraft customization" then you can select the skin for your own plane (and some other stuff). If you don't select your skin here, you will just get a default one...but the next time you play a mission with that plane, the game will remember what skin you picked last time and use it again. Kind of weird and easy to forget about. I maybe should put notes in the briefings about what skin to pick...

b) yeah a couple skins need to go in the folders for a couple different types of the same model of planes...

let me know if my instructions are a bit confusing...maybe I should list the exact names of the folders instead of listing the type of plane and assuming people can match it up to the folder...the folder names are often confusing and a little misleading.

all skins titled "I-16_pirate"

place here:

C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\IL-2 Sturmovik 1946\PaintSchemes\Skins\I-16type24
