Question about netcache skins that I find in the NetCache folder.

Before I delete what is in the NetCache folder I look over whats in there and sometimes I find some pretty cool skins but I cant tell from what aircraft they came.
I did see a nice skin last night that I thought had to be a P-51D, so I plunked it in the P-51D-20NA folder and checked it out in QMB and it looked good.

I guess there is no way to determine exactly what aircraft the skin is for but what happens when you put a skin BMP in the wrong aircraft folder?

The skin just gets mapped to the plane you are flying. Sometimes it looks fine, sometimes it looks terrible. No real harm done either way.

S! The best way is to make a comparrison side by side. Make a copy of the unknown skin. Send it to a test folder. Take a guess what type of plane it is. P-51 ok. Send copies of your dfault P-51 or void skin, to that folder as well. You can then decide what model P-51 it is. Some Skins will fit all models some will not. Have fun and good hunting!

Sometimes it's fun to deliberately try a skin on the wrong aircraft... the outcomes are usually bizarre but sometimes hilarious http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
