    Funny skin.

    I really don't think it will save anybody, well, perhaps against an absolutely noob.

    It's very interesting to look at all the skins in online sessions. Some are pretty nice and realistic, some are funny and some are just crap. But, hell, it's everybodies right to make his own skin and if someone is happy with that kind of skin, so be it. As long as they are not invisible, thatӞs fine with me. The skin will be black and grey after I shot at it, anyway [img]/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif[/img]

    I honestly fail to see the value of this topic.

    Why would anyone say that using paint as a deceptive measure against enemy pilots is cheating? Is this not the SPIRIT of CAMOFLUAGE?

    If it is OK to paint my aircraft to look like the sky, or trees or sand or water, then why is anything else not fair game also? The camofluage schemes of history were not chosen because they looked good on the plane. Deception is an essential, and fundamental tactic of war.

    Just because a certain practice was not used during 1940-1945 does not invalidate the concept.

    i actually created a skin from a screen capture of the ground - just to see what is was like.- and whther it would work

    was quite good actually - as soon as the plane was below a bout 100 ft it was almost completely invisible - did look a bit crap close up though.

    of course i would never use it online as i do consider this form of camouflage - unrealistic or cheating- to have gotten a camo scheme that effective in RL the plane wouldn't just have to have been painted the exact colur of the ground it probably would have to have actually had grass growing on it - which is of course completly stupid.

    as to skins like the one posted above - i feel it has it's place - in say a private room where the use of such un-historical skins is agreed by all flyers -but noton sa server which is attempting to simulate RL.

    Historically this sort of visual misdirection has been used in just about every conflict this century. What's unrealistic about it?

    Incidentally, you'll find similar deceptive camouflage in nature, especially among fish.
