Ka-50 Black Shark skin

Yesterday i bumped into something.

 

I was editing a mission from someone else which has the Black Shark in it. The mission seems made with the BS module installed and activated.

 

Now the problem was that the skins were set up on the black one with the shark teeth and the red, however this skin is not standard installed when you have lets say only the A-10C package or no BS package resulting in the default bright yellow/orange 'skin-error' skin.

 

Now this could mean a few things.

 

1.

The implementation of all products skins has yet to be implemented in the World client.

 

2.

Special skins only are available when you install and purchase a module.

 

In case of 1 there isnt a big deal. In case 2 its different. Not everybody will have every module thus not every skin. Traded missions or missions on servers will have all these yellow vehicles flying around.

Also, when these 3rd party aircraft will enter DCS, those skins most likely will have to be on every client as a standard install through the World engine or we will see alot of uglyness flying around or 50-500 MB downloads before joining a server for skinpacks to load up that are packed with the mission.

 

Or maybe im looking at the problem totaly wrong and perhaps adding only the skins from the module downloads to the missionservers install is enough to make it show for everyone. However i dont think DCS works like that. There should be conciderable more networkuse for large skinfiles to cross, which there isnt.

It looks like only skins are shown that the client has installed and when the client doesnt recognise a skin it turns into the yellow skinerror instead of a default skin everyone has in the standard install.

 

Has this been discussed yet somewhere already?

Demo #24 (the one that doesnt say "black shark") is broken. It has already been discussed, http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=91653 This error showed itself in the latest patch but I am sure it will be fixed later.

Yeah, Each race has its own skins. Russia has more since it is a Russian Air frame after all :)

 

EDIT: Though im not sure how to off the top of my head, I am sure that there is a way you can change who has access to the skins.
