I just downloaded some really nice skins from IL2skins.com, but the problem is I haven't figured out how to use them. I thought you could just drag and drop the file into the paint schemes/skins/'pariticular AC' folder, but it doesn't show when I try to customize the AC. What's the secret?

Have you extracted the files? Once you have done this, enter the folder and the file and click and drag the templates into the particular folder. Once you have done this, you can use your skins by selecting the correct aircraft in the advanced aircraft setup and choosing the skin you want.

To be able to fare well,
To avoid the frustration of misfortune,
That, in this world, is happiness.

All you have to do is open the file you dl'ed the skins in. Open the FB File in C\Progams\UbiSoft. Go to Paintschemes\Skins and open. Folders for all the planes are there.

Open your d/l file and double click the zip file. Click and drag the .bmp file to the appropriate plane folder.

Works for me!
