Hey guys lost my note how do you change the skins so all the planes are the same skin when you start missions??

 

If you added the skin correctly, you should be able to select it from the drop down menu for each a/c in the Loadout screen.

 

If you want the skin to be the default skin, I think you need to set it as the #1 texture in the file.

Can you tell me what file and the step next so all have the same please. Many Thanks!!

I'm assuming you are refering to an add-on skin. Each skin should come with a README that outlines how it is installed. Basically you put the skin folder into the A/C folder. You then edit the aircraft ini (NOT the data ini) and add the new skin to the list of existing texture sets. If you want the new skin to be the default skin that the game chooses, then that skin should be texture set 1.

 

Once the skin is successfully added (and if you didn't make it the default skin) it cna be chosen in the Loadout menu from the list of possible paint schemes. In the Loadout menu, each aircraft can be individually tailored for paint, weapon load etc.

A quick note to folks. If the new addon skin has a Textureset.ini file in it's directory, then you do not even have to edit the aircraft ini at all. The game engine will AUTOMATICALLY insert the Textureset.ini details the next time you run the sim.

This part still applies though.
