I can't tell whether it would break multiplayer compatibility or not, but yeah, it is possible to redirect the references in the ndf to a different texture file. Though I'm not sure if there are some free texture files which could be used to do so...

There is defenitely a bunch of unused units (not a lot to be honest) but I'm pretty sure they use already existing models :/

Dear Vasto,
Can you guide me how can I do some units re-skinning?
Thank you.

EDIT:
I just found your topic about it: viewtopic.php?f=161&t=40121

Cheers!
We are here to stay!

I'm thinking about those cloth covered transport Humvees that have been completely replaced by the more conventional one.
I don't think it has been used in RD, it was in ALB though.

Britain doesn't need better SEAD - it has the Challenger 2 for that.

I would prefer the VF-154 low-viz scheme. Using one-off schemes like the CAG paint where you can get two Tomcats doesn't sit right with me.

Besides, VF-213 is an Atlantic Fleet squadron. PACFLT would be more likely in this situation.

Hm my polish MIG 23 is now part of the DDR. Any chance that Nations do not share the skins ?

Sorry, only Eugen can fix that. And sadly there are many others like this one, and no willingness to change them :(

Unfortunately the latest "cosmetic" patch made my F-15E skins useless from authenticity point of view, as the F-15E has been renamed to F-15D... I probably will have to make a renaming mod and add it as an optional part of US pack.
