Hello. I just got back to the game after few good months break. I was playing a bit last night with the little He112B.

While exploring all the tabs in the GUI, I noticed a tab for skins. there was a nice collection of custom skins and I found one for that little slow a$$ He112. :lol:  It was a Romanian one  and since I grew up there it was appealing to me.

I just didn't know how I could get that skin for my plane. It looks like the way the game is setup, you have to get a certain number of kills with the type to get it. That's ok only that the number is FIFTY victories!!! :(s

 

   I barely have few hours in the official version and with the limited time I have, I don't see when I could get that number of kills in that slow plane....Specially with all those tempting fast planes I can easily get with one of the fast track ways.

 

 I find it odd that I can buy a fast plane, can buy my "promotion" to whatever rank I want, I can buy better weapons and engines for my planes, but I can't get a custom skin for my plane, unless I get 50 kills in it.

 

Is there another way to get my skins? Or even better, can I make my own?

 

Thanks all for any help or instructions. :salute:

You can use the decals, you can kind of paint a plane if you enlarge the decals over the fuselage or wing

Next patch the Decal system is getting revamped so we could see something for more "customization"

Thanks for the quick response. I know about the decals system. I've used it on my Dora, but I'm talking about a specific historical skin available in game. You can't do that with the decal system.

The D-13 has no skins currently

Only the D-12 has skins.

Oh, that's a bummer.  :(s  Thanks for the fast answer.

   I don't understand the logic behind that one. You can get everything in the game, that will give you huge advantage over other people the fast way and in order to get a simple skin, you need long  hard work. It makes no sense.

Yesterday I just bought my way over two classes of planes in a few seconds and I have to work a week to get a simple skin for a 1938 plane..... It has no logic.
