At the moment it's pretty scanty, but in the past it's been as big as 400MB. I clean it out every so often.

Heh - that's funny - I just accidently deleted all my custom skins while reinstalling (second time) AEP - darn! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif - but it doesn't really matter because many of the skins I had were outdated & have been optimized since... So I'll start DLing the IMO best skins again.

I haven't done any myself btw - just fooling around with other peoples templates but I wouldn't upload those in my own name - would be like stealing sort of.

S!

"So when Diogenes perceived that he was greatly excited and quite keyed up in mind with expectancy, he toyed with him and pulled him about in the hope that somehow he might be moved from his pride and thirst for glory and be able to sober up a little. For he noticed that at one time he was delighted, and at another grieved at the same thing, and that his soul was as unsettled as the weather at the solstices when both rain and sunshine come from the very same source."

(Dio Chrysostom "Discourse" 4.77-78)

My collection is quite small compared to others at 250mb but I'm quite particular about what skins I download, only historically accurate and only ones that personally appeal to me.

Only DL'd 17 skins from IL2skins

Since the number of contributors to IL2skins is pretty big, I have become very choosy about who's stuff I download (CanonUK and Bo_Nidle, take a bow http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/11.gif )

I like the consistency of their high quality work the best. I just DL'd an 8 pack of skins (on my 56.6 dialup http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_mad.gif )that CanonUK did, and they are soooo pretty. Bo has done some great work on my favorite plane of all time, P-51D "Detroit Miss"

Many other skinners have done a great job, too, but there's so many skinners, so little time to download!

Two weeks ago was 4.13 Gigs, but most of them were junk, or test of my own skins http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/1241.gif, but after a nice (and radical) clean-up, i have only 1.88 Gigs. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/icon_twisted.gif
Need i say that 524Mb of those are only for the Bf109? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/784.gif

I download the skins I want onto CD's and catalog them. When I'm building a campaign or series of missions, I load selected skins into the game. At the moment, the HD is holding a little less than a gig in skins.

Like other simmers here, I like painters who do their research as well as create skins. We're lucky to have a dozen or so extraordinarily gifted artists serving this community, people who also know WW II units and history. I'm grateful that they're willing to share their work.

i like painting skins using jasc paint shop 7 and sometimes corel paint 9. but i just cant figure out how to use adode and layering. my plane skins are not realistic but either is my flying. anyone want one, ask. jem10@psu.edu

I know exactly what you mean, CanonUK's emils and FW-190A-4 are simply amazing, real pieces of art. But I've got to say my all time favorites are Leadspitters Graf and Hartman Bf-109G-6's. Just awesome! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/11.gif
