...I think it's time for our default skins to lose some of it's in-game-applied MAT markings.
All skins should have the markings system similar to those of the default USAAF, and that is markings already present on skin and not loaded by the game separately.

Only when we choose for example German markings on P-38, in game MATs should activate, since it is quite useless to have several same default skins with different markings. That is the only situation where default in-game-applied MATs should kick in.

Default skins will look better beyond any doubt if markings are applied directly to them and not applied by the game. We have for instance German markings applied by the game on Bf-109G14 default skin, and it gets those ugly white crosses on wings which are barely visible below.

Numbering can be solved by in-game MATs, as it already is.

This cosmetical stuff can be, I suppose fixed quite easily... and it will increase immersion for sure. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

One condition for Oleg's OK for new defaults was to make the pack an optional download, which translates into no programming work for Maddox Games. This means your idea will not come true, as it would turn anything into a mandatory download. Additionally it would force the skinners involved to redo their skins with markings.

Are all aircraft getting reskins or just the Warclouds ETO mainstays?

Nope. All Yaks (minus Yak-3 VK107), all LaGGs/Las (minus the jets/mixed), all MiG-3s, all Il-2s, all Fw 190s, all Bf 109s, Me 262 A-1a & A-2a, Ta 152 H and most italians.

No ointment for the scabby Zero's then? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Those A6M3's and A6M5a's etc. are a shocking embarassment. In all seriousness, CFS2 has default A6M skins that are far, far better than what shipped with PF. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

Well it all started with "just" the G-6 late, the G-10 and the G-6/AS. And when it began, we thought we would have a few weeks at best, not nearly a year. If we'd known this before there would have been more project teams doing more skins.

No mention of Japanese or USN/USMC skin corrections or updates. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif
