I loved watching the pictures and reading about the fly in and I thought…
What if I created personalised textures for long(-ish) time posters here in Mudspike (I basically exclude myself with this but… ) ?
Let me explain- I would like to allow everyone here to don her/his personal skin during fly-ins or regular flights with the MudSpike Servers (or whose puts her/his to use).
I still owe some friends here and there a free skin so- why not just make it for everyone?
Starting with the site owners/creators, of course…
There are basically two ways this could work-
a complete reworked skin according to the taste of the simmer
if the mission is supposed to be more “serious-ish” and not really fit for Kello Hitty Neon pink camo; just a regular skin with personalised items (i.e.: the name under the canopy, a personalised nose art, a kills tag, a specific roundel, low visibility markings, you know what I mean and you know you want this…)
Now, starting time is a bit uncertain as I’ll be in the new apartment after May 15th and probably even longer before I can access fast internet- but I’m pretty sure that:
1- You all can start thinking if this is worth,
2- I can start taking orders,
3- we can devise an honest order-sorting to avoid bad blood,
Well, thing is, I can be really fast.
Especially if we talk about adding personalisation to an already existing paint-scheme…
Making a completely new Kello Hitty with hi-rez decal is another subject- but I hardly believe any of you is looking forward to something like that. Except Dart or Parabellum.
In any case- I’ve been able to produce textures for nearly everything* so far- I’m not worried.
Let’s just popular consensus choose the next fly-in and the kind of paint-jobs we need.
Great idea! It would be awesome to look at a plane and read the name that’s written below the cockpit to know who’s who.
DCS handles missing aircraft textures very nicely, by using a default livery instead. Side note: It even handles missing 3D models very well. Do you remember the Su-27s in multiplayer when Hawk and Mirage were just released?
