hi oleg , hi everyone!
Sorry, i don't realy know if i'm on the right forum for this probleme..anyway....
i got just 2 little stupid questions and it seems that none can help me, i post the same question in several forums but didn't get any answer, those 2questions are:

1?Is there a possibility to ADD a new squadron in the list of all squadrons? i tried to add a line with the name of my squad in the dgen but it didn't make any difference, it didn't appears.

2?is there a possibility to choose the position of the squad insign (and of the nosart)on the fuselage?and if i would like to add a new insign (not noseart) would it be possible too?

thanks for answering, even if it's by a negative answer, but it's just i hate having questions around my head without any answers http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Keep us flying and dreaming oleg!
Spasiba!

I can answer the nose art question, which is YES, you can create your own nose art and use it in game.

What I did was take an existing nose art file, save it as a copy and rename it to my own custom name. (In this case Zen_NoseArt.bmp)

I used photoshop to create the image that I wanted and then saved it, it was then accessible via the drop down for nose art choices.

The dimensions are a little strange (256x512) so this is what my nose art looks like as a file:

http://209.163.147.67/zen/files/zen/zen_noseart.bmp

But in game only the top half is shown on the plane.

Squadron insignia is very similar to do but the dimensions are 128x128 and an accompanying file must be present in the regiments folder. For example:

I have a regiment file called Zen_Regiment_USA.bmp and I had to create a file called Zen_Regiment_USA to go with it. Inside that Zen_Regiment_USA I entered the following information:

country = US
id = ZZ
gruppeNumber = 1
short = Zen_Regiment_USA.bmp
info = Zen_Regiment_USA.bmp


You need to make sure that the .bmp matches your regiment file name, but notice that Zen_Regiment_USA has no extension...its not a .txt or a .bmp or anything at all. This is important to understand or the regiment won't show up under your choices.


Also, each country needs its own .bmp file and the accompanying regiment file, including the country NONE if you want your regiment available no matter what country you fly.

http://209.163.147.67/zen/files/zen/zen_regiment_example.bmp

A simple way to do this is to create a copy of an existing regiment picture and regiment file, then change them to your custom name and change the Short and Info names to match your custom .bmp file name.

You'll notice that I have one .bmp file and one regiment file for each country. The country codes are different, so go to an existing file to find out what country code you need.
