About This File
NOTE: This only works with DCS World 1.2.16 or earlier. DCS World 1.5/2.0 uses a new MiG-29 model.
I originally did this at the request of a friend, who wished to have the Czech camouflage pattern on fictional Georgian MiGs. I used the Czech pattern as a starting point, then used the colors on the Georgian MiG-21 to finish the job. Once I completed the pattern, I eventually decided to release it to the public.
In addition to Georgia, the skin is available to Russia, Ukraine, and Insurgents.
These MiG-29A skins do not require you to overwrite any existing "slots"; they exist as individual skins using the standard definition.lua format. Simply put the skins in your Saved Games\DCS\Liveries\ folder; you should be able to extract using the path that exists in this archive file.
In order to have the Georgian MiG-29A (and the skins) available for Georgia in the Mission Editor, you will need to update the db_countries.lua file located in DCS World\Scripts\Database. Open the file in a text editor like Notepad++ and search for the following string:
This is the comment line that starts the Georgia section.
In the first section,you will see the following entries:
cnt_unit( units.Planes.Plane, "Su-25"); cnt_unit( units.Planes.Plane, "An-26B"); cnt_unit( units.Planes.Plane, "Su-25T"); cnt_unit( units.Planes.Plane, "L-39ZA"); cnt_unit( units.Planes.Plane, "Yak-40"); cnt_unit( units.Planes.Plane, "P-51D");
These are the planes available to Georgia in the mission editor. Just add the following line:
cnt_unit( units.Planes.Plane, "MiG-29A");
You may also optionally add that line to the section starting with
This opens more possibilities for scenarios, and all of the included skins are available to the Insurgents as well as Russia and the Ukraine.
Special thanks to Jack for allowing the use and modification of his enhanced pylon texture, as well as his collaboration in developing MiG-29 skins that are not dependent on the original "slots" of the Flanker 2.5/LOMAC models.
