<stupid mode on> Can anyone tell me how you can change the gunner skin ?
I usually fly with my own fizzog as the pilot, but I have a good wargaming buddy who seldom plays flight sims. Thought it would be cool to skin him as the gunner when I fly an Il-2 or Bf110 - but I have no idea which pilot skin the game uses for the gunner ? Is it hard coded and impossible to change, or am I unusually thick ?

Yes, probably the latter.

Thanks guys

As far as I know it uses the pilots skin for the gunners also and can't be changed separately.

Thanks HW3, but I've checked the gunner's face ( in the IL2 anyway ) and it aint me !

Maybe it takes the default pilot face ?

But I've seen people offering He111 gunner crew skins at Il2skins, so thought it must be possible - or are all the crew in the He111 then given that uniform ?

Still hoping. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

In He-III all the crew members share the same pilot skin.In other planes like Ju-87 Stuka have differnt skins for pilot and gunner,with the gunner being the default one,the skin transfers from pilot to gunner every time you switch places.

All Except the Beaufighter Elephant...........that one the pilot and the Gunner wear the same skins.......or at least till you jump out of it on the ground, at which point the gunner does a quick change into his natty blue uniform........... then hops out and runs away.......... oh and yes I have reported it.

That's an other issue Tony.
I have reported all the "bad things" about pilots but I don't believe anything is realy going to happen,eventually! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif
Too minor the issue,too late so far. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/351.gif
