I believe that w/ IrfanView one can see all the skins arranged in the flat plane it shows....BUT, is there any way to view the various skins on one's plane w/out loading it into the game and waiting to see how you look on the field. I'd love to have a dress mod where one could shuffle thru the skins and see which one you want before you select one and go to field. Thx

Afraid not - if there was such software, then us skinners would use it all the time.
As it is we have to load a skin we are creating into WOFF then start WOFF and select the skin in QC. If it needs correcting then we have to shut down WOFF, change the skin then reload it to WOFF and check it again.
For each skin it takes longer to check it WOFF every time than it does to create the skin in the first place.

Wow, that kinda blows my mind... I'll bet the original Microsoft FS (FSX or whatever) and the CFS series all used the same aircraft rendering... Amazing that nobody built an external rendering program. Of course, perhaps OBD has upped the ante with it's method of modeling the plane, I don't know.

But I speak of that which I have little knowledge of. Mike, while I was here I clicked to peruse some of your models again... just amazing. It was all I could do to get a pre-painted Saturn V together last winter!
