Can you specify skins for your wingmen in Career Mode? I can select 'my' skin, but then I don't match my wingnuts. Can I pick their skins too? Or just make them always use 'my' skin? (that last one would be nice!)<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

You can edit the DGEN config files to give specific skins to each squadron with the default campaign generator.

In the DGEN folder, there are a load of files. The [mapname].DB files set what squadrons and aircraft were flying in this campaign (and a lot of other stuff too). You can edit this to give custom skins.

For instance, the Barbarossa.DB file is default like this:
<pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">(loads of stuff)

Thanks, I'll check that out and see if I can figure it out...

EDIT:
PhilipsCDRw,

I just took a look and have another question... How do I figure out which .db file my career is using?

Also, I went to the SimHQ forums and did a search in the IL2/PF forum for: 'skin wingmen' but only found 2 posts that didn't talk about this. Were you talking about the forums or is there some other FAQ posts somewhere? Just want to make sure I'm looking in the right place...<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

This thread at SimHQ has everything everyone ever knew about DGen:

Most of the DB files are named after the map the campaign is on, I think.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
