I would have posted this over at the Hyperfighter forums but for some reason after I created an account, I could no longer access their forums.

Recently, my brother and I were both flying using hyperlobby and he was using a custom skin that he made. Although he could see his own custom skin while online, my screen showed his plane had the default skin.

Is it possible to see custom skins on other planes while flying in hyperlobby?

I believe that the mission host can choose to disable all players from swap skins to make the missions load faster. I also think that each player can choose this option so that their harddrives don't become filled up with other people's custom skins. Look into that.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I mapped my keyboard controls so they're easier to remember, and added user- defined commands</A>

Yes, the server has to allow and the download of skins and the individual player has to allow for it.

Neither is a feature of Hyperlobby. It's a feature of the game.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

"A lady came up to me on the street, pointed to my leather flight jacket and said, "Don't you know a cow was murdered for that jacket?" I replied menacingly, "I didn't know I left witnesses. Now, I'll have to kill you too."

Skin download is rated as low priority online, so even if the skin downloads it could take tens of minutes for it to show. Thankfully aerial manouvres are given priority over paint schemes.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
