Question about the skins that I finally(!) got a chance to install.
Notice that, in copying them over, there were very few replacements and most are “new” skins.
Will they automatically be called up in the game for the appropriate Jastas?

Hi Mr Hand

The skins will go into the skin file of the game under the Jasta listed in their label. However, unless they are labeled for a specific ace ai they will not automatically appear in the game automatically. Some of them are for aces that do not have a skin in-game at present and these WILL appear automatically as will the replacements, unless I screwed up on the label. They all work on QC but I have not double checked all of them in Campaign. I am doing a Jasta 30 campaign right now and they are all working there.

I did not give an ace name to a number of these skins either because they were complete assumptions or downright fabrications on my part. For instance, I have a skin coming in the next batch for Otto Fuchs, Jasta 30, flying a Pfalz because he is given one in-game. As far as I know he never planted his butt in one except maybe for a test run, but I enjoy flying with my ace ai and like to see them in something other than the wingman plane.

So to make a long story a little shorter, if you want to see these unassigned skins in-game you will have to label them with the ace of your choice or fly them yourself. I noted on several of them that I personally use them for a certain ace but have no historical backing for it or couldn't make it any closer to the actual plane with my present skill level, which is improving the more I play with them.

I think that answers the question. Let me know if it's unclear. Hope you enjoy them.

Jerbear

Thanks for bringing it up. It is probably causing some confusion. I will include that explanation in the next Read Me files.
