I am off tomorrow, but tonight I made one more discovery / breakthrough before leaving. I have finally compiled the new Paint Scheme class file I have worked on for months! And, more than that, it even works!
So, from now on we have a special category for any aircraft whose 3D model will not work with directly applied national insignia [ex. the Ju 188A]. These can be assigned to this special paint scheme class, and they will get game applied national markings as in the pre-KEDSS days. There are not too many of these, but now we are covered when we find such models.
Brilliant. And now, to France…! See you all soon, and play nicely.
