Oh, that reminds me I have not publicly released the latest version 1.7.5 of Mission Editor yet. On request of hoongadoonga I have implemented the Player custom skin selection button - now you can select custom skins for selected aircraft in Mission Editor Pilot menu - see enclosed picture.
1) "No lightning" radiobutton did not work - fixed
2) Pilot restoration from backup routine fixed
3) Added new button Save as default - you can save your formation as default. Non functional at present - WIP
