Hi guys,

I am sure someone will know this. When you are downloading skins and eventually open the file to send them to their relevant plane directory you sometimes get a file saying 'thumbs'.

What is this for and where are you supposed to put it?

At the moment I have been putting it in the same folder as the skin ie 109G6 etc... Is this correct???

Thanks for reading

Cheers

Those that I have encountered are just thumbnails of screenshots the author has included of his work.

A little self -congradulatory pat on the back for a job well done.

You don't "need" to put them anywhere. Mine just get tucked away in my ever growing file of IL-2 skins

Easiest way I've found is to open the .zip file and drag just the skins out to your desktop or wherever.. Copy them and then paste them to the relevant folder. I leave the READ ME FILES and the THUMBS alone.

Saves the time of having to hunt down each specific folder and tell the .zip where to stick it.

I made a shortcut to my IL2FB folder on my desktop so it works pretty quick like that for me.

When I'm done with that I drop the whole .zip file in the bin and send it on it's merry way.
