Currently in game, players can use various custom skins for air vehicle. However there are some exceptions: jettisonable stuff, like missiles / rocket and rocket pods / bombs / external fuel tanks / some launchers and bomb racks are unable to be customized by user skins.

Spoiler


The problem is, sometimes we cannot completely describe real life aircraft because of this limitations. For example, paintings on aircraft’s fuel tanks are cannot be described in game even with custom skins.

Training munitions, with blue colored or blue striped warhead/rocket motor section

Color, texture variants of existing weapons




Needless to say, describing the training munitions or specific variant of current weaponry are also impossible.

Therefore, I think it would be good to be able to apply skins to these secondary weapons. It’ll help to portray real vehicles more accurately, while expanding range of creativity.

I think acceptable Customed skins of pilots can be applied,too.With that I can custom my pilots or other members’ helmets
However replacing the whole pilots models is too much,like the Japanese premium AH-1S.
But at least a customed helmets could be good.For example, I want to paint my Mig-28(F5) pilot’s helmet balck and add a Soviet red star,like Top Gun did.And in reality a lot pilots would customlize their helmets.

This, custom pilot helmets, and custom drop tank decorations could add a very neat layer to market skins, or maybe even become their own form of customization (sorta like a decal)

As a skin maker, the lack fuel tank paint is a real frustration. Often these modern flagship paint schemes have fuel tanks that integrate into the overall design. We are even able to pull the assets out of the cdk and design them, but unfortunately they do no import into the game itself. Missiles and other munitions are not as important to me, but would be cool. The helmets are a big yes, and something I never really thought about, but would be really nice to have the ability to add.

The texture has a purpose, thermal coating helps delay the possibility of it detonating. Gives enough time for crew to A, disarm it, B set the fuse to as high as it can be, C move it out of the ship into the ocean and D throw it into a room where its detonation will not do anything substantial although the B and D are just guesses.

Definitely +1.

Not only it would make skins ever more nicer, but also the possibility of such small things as paint the shark teeth on missiles can’t be overlooked. A small think, but very nice one (to you ofc).
