View Full Version : Allowing nose art on ATAG

While I understand the performance hit and wanting to avoid pink and rainbow colored spitfires fighting with 109's colored like the water, I wonder if it is possible to allow for "nose art" on the current/default skins?

I know this is a logistical nightmare since everyone would have to DL and insert everyone else's nose art skin but I'm just curious on if it is possible to have something like this without having a performance hit. And on the logistical side, maybe not everyone would have to have everyone else's art, but if you fly with a certain select group of people every time or in a squadron, it would be nice to be able to show that... specially for bombers, when you are in a large group it'd be nice to look out and know who is where right away rather then having to remember who's numbers are who's.

Maybe I'm off my rocker but am just thinking out loud here.

There's no separate setting between "custom skins" and "nose art"

So without that separation it would be impossible for ATAG to control what paint schemes are being used? Wouldn't that control still be in ATAG's hands if you had to submit the nose art to ATAG then group them by squadron or whatever, allowing people to DL which ones they want to see?

It's not that simple. The caching system is bloody awful and even by sharing about the .dds files it doesn't always work, we had bad results when we tried it. Then there is that annoying bug where markings are displayed on top of somebody else's aircraft when they haven't enabled it. I'm not convinced this is even a bug raised in the system, it's certainly low priority.

However ACG run skins and we don't get lag however we have a pretty fixed bunch of pilots and nobody has stupid skins.

SM, Pink Spitfires, what the hell are you talking about? Are you out of your mind?

Oh yeah, pink was a very good camo colour and used by PR Spitfires.
