-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have collected all the available liveries I could find from the user file down-load page and the forums and assembled them into one JSGME package.

 

I hope it is ok to post a link to the entire collection.

 

If there is any objection to any skin being included, I will remove it.

 

If I missed any, point them out and I will add them to the mod.

 

Not if but WHEN the file becomes too large, It can be split into smaller pieces.

 

After the template is released, most or all of these will change.

 

I will update the Mod when necessary.

 

Great job to all the artists who created these wonderful skins!

 

All credit belongs to the original authors.

 

Thank you!

 

Have fun!

A few liveries removed by request.

He´s not taken another´s work, he is compiling the skins in one pack.

 

I dont´see any damage to anyone on that.

 

The skins are public and available anyway on the files section.

Much appreciated

 

Rock, while we're at it, any word on fixing the texture mapping on flaps of Your BS410 livery? :)

 

Been a busy couple of weeks bud, maybe next weekend when I get some time.

Maybe a silly question, but in which folder in DCS are they placed and what is the best way to access them on a flying model?

 

On <your user>/saved ganes/dcs/ create a folder named "Liveries", within that create a sub folder named "SpitfireLFMkIX".

 

Put each livery on a separate folder within that path (/saved games/dcs/liveries/SpitfireLFMkIX), when you are in the sim, you can change your current livery on the armament window.

I'm the same. I put skins in Liveries folders as suggest by both gents at the same time and still nothing shows other than the stock liveries!

 

I have aircraft and ships in the mods folder that works fine though!!

 

Any other ideas?

Thanks

 

Edit - fixed - user error - folder format was incorrect

You can put your skins (Liveries) directly into the installation folders in 'c:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World\Bazar\Liveries' into the folder belonging to the aircraft type, each skin in its own folder, but these will be moved to ''c:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World\_backup.nnn' at every update.

 

You can also put them into your Saved Games folder by following these instructions Creating a Single Universal Liveries Folder for All Installs, in which case they will never be removed or moved and will be available to all versions of DCS you have installed, as long as they are configured accordingly.

Well then just follow the instructions and replace the C with B if you want to install them inside the game itself. Why you would do this is beyond me as they will get wiped at every update I reckon

 

 

Use either the saved games path as suggested or JSGME/OVGME, search the site for what these pieces of software can do for you.

 

 

Just another suggestion when you are in the Mission Editor & cannot find the skins make sure the country you are flying as is the same as in the Description.lua file for the skin

 

 

If you don't understand what I'm on about try flying as UK for the Spit, the chances are the skin (or at least some skins) will come up. Most skins for the Spit are RAF although there are Armee De L'Air skins (France) and others

 

 

If you fly for the wrong country you will not see the appropriate skins

 

 

Just a thought

Thanks Weegie - I have successfully used JSGME for the sound mod and I tried it for the liveries as the paths are the same. I will keep trying and yes, when I select the Spit, I always make it UK. I think the files downloaded and extracted from zip are incomplete in some way - thats my guess.

Post a link to one of the liveries that cause trouble and we'll take a look whether it works fine in current game version or not.

No they won't - they're custom folders the updater has no idea about, so it cannot even touch them. Unless someone specifically runs a game cleanup command.

 

Anyway, back to Hornetjock, I took a look at the Reflected's skin you mention. It is a bit unusual, not having any specific "countries" defined in it at all, but looks like it it can be used with any of them.

I don't know how your folder structure is set up in JSGME, but I can confirm that the skin will become selectable when files end up extracted to either

 

c:\Users\[your user name]\Saved Games\DCS\Liveries\SpitfireLFMkIX\RAF Johnnie Johnson EN398 by Reflected\

 

or

 

[your DCS installation path]\DCS World\Bazar\Liveries\SpitfireLFMkIX\RAF Johnnie Johnson EN398 by Reflected\

The path would be :

 

 

 

B\DCS World\Bazar\Liveries\SpitfireLFMkIX\RAF Johnnie Johnson EN398 by Reflected\

 

 

 

I notice that for me the SpitfireLFMKIX does not have a folder in Liveries...It goes from Soldier Stinger to Stinger Comm. Is that how it should be? Should I just create a folder "SptifireLFMKIX"?

Indeed, some planes don't have their own folders in "liveries" location and they have to be created manually, that's the case with our Spit as well. Generally correct spelling of the airplane name is critical, as you can see here it's "SpitfireLFMKIX" without any spaces, dashes and such.

 

Just to be sure - the "RAF Johnnie Johnson EN398 by Reflected" folder must contain only these few loose files with .dds and .lua extension.
