We now have a dedicated section, and more bandwidth.

I had offered IL2 skins a permanent home for quite a while now and Sharx never got a hold of us. www.combatace.com (http://www.combatace.com) was created to save sites (combat flight sim sites) from blinking out of existence; maybe we were too late for IL2 skins but never again. If you have created or have downloaded a skin, please register and upload it at www.combatace.com (http://www.combatace.com)

Give credit to the author of course but more importantly preserve it for history, let's stop complaining and do something about it. Now we all have a place of our own where we can upload and download and never fear it going away. Missions and campaigns also!

We will have a dedicated forums section shortly to keep track of all the new files as well as discuss IL2 related events let's do it! Please pass this info along!

Tons of bandwidth and fast upload and download times , this site is not for profit but for preservation.

I'm about 1/3 done redoing the origional VVS figher cmpn in the origional IL-2 patched to v1.2. I'll send it there when I get done. I assume one can fly the cmpn misns from the origional sim as single misns in FB, since the cmpn mode is different. I'm sure having alot of fun doing this.....I'm re-doing everything, briefings, etc, more appropriate and historically planes and such. A couple more weeks to go.....

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gifERM!..i have 2 CDs of 650 Mb each off the IL2 Skins site plus 330 Mb on my HD, they're still in ZIP with the old IL2Skins name and number, but very few have the artists name...i'm not sure if it is fair to share without giving credit...there will be skins by the well known skinners, Leadspitter, Hammerd, CannonUK and many more...what should i do?

Good work! Bookmarked. It's probably a good idea to let the skinners upload their own files. They may want to make changes or improvements on their templates. I'll upload a few of mine this weekend.

We now have a couple of real solutions to work with.

This issue was raised a while ago in the PaintSchemes forum when a user called SeaNorris wanted to upload a number of skins he had collected from various sources. The general concensus was to contact the skinner in question for permission to upload the skin.. it's only polite. As for my skins, I'd rather they weren't uploaded anywhere. I'm in the middle of working on my own site to host my work, and I'd rather have everything in one place http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Glad to see this post stickied. MK2, thanks for your efforts here, and I'm sorry that nothing ever came of Sharx getting in touch. I really wish it could have worked out.

Since things with il2skins appear to have moved on, the staff from the old il2skins site have as well. We are now Sim Paint, a small site, forums mainly, that does what the old forums at il2skins used to: help and resources for skinners of all flight sims. I'm currently recommending combatsim.com to anyone looking for an upload site, and I also encourage authors to post at Sim Paint with info on where a new skin is hosted, and maybe post a screenshot too.

Even though the main parts are here and there on the web now, we can work together to get new skins into the hands of those wanting them. Thanks again.

EDIT: My new Sig keeps reverting to my old one. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/354.gif
