Well, as I said before I'm not the expert when it comes to making skins and such. So I downloaded the official Skin Pack from the official PF site.
I extracted it in the skin folder and add/replace all the files. But i don't seem to be able to find the new skin in game. when I go to to select the skin I still have only 1 and the VOID as before. Did i do something wrong? I'm affraid that I shouldn't have replace the old skins...but there was no instruction on how to do so it seemed to be a logical move to add them there. HELP...I want more Skin...for my planes that is. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

The official skin pack you downloaded was probably the void pack, released for skinners to make skins with. You probably just replaced all the voids with identical voids.

Try IL-2 Skins for custom skins for all of the planes. www.il2skins.com (http://www.il2skins.com)

I have only PF, do they work with it. the planes in IL2 arn't really the same as the one in PF.

I don't even really need skins i just want the tags and sybols change...i read thru all the tutorials there is in the forum but can't figure out what they trying to tll me what to do.

I got PS and PSP. so, if anyone got a good link for the most unknown skinner pls send me. I tried to make skins already for IL2...but stopped because...well, I never figured out how. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

IL2skins has skins for all planes in the IL2 series (including PF).

Do I just add the skin in the skin folder of the certain plane or what to do with it? Since in the skin folder of the planes I can't see the actually skin paintings but only the VOID.

Just put the skin in the appropriate folder in explorer. In most cases one skin for a certain plane will work in all variants of that plane.... Go here.. C:\Program Files\Ubi Soft\IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten BattlesPF\PaintSchemes\Skins and just drop it in the right folder. Then when in the sim go to the little round button next to the drop down arrow for loadout. Press it and when the window opens you will see a picture of the plane.. look down on the right you will see Airforce, squadron,skin pilot etc.... this is also where you would set your convergence for your guns and your bomb and rocket delay. Note that you can apply a different skin to each plane in your flight.
