Barely a single dud in this entire collection.
Really impressed with the quality of these textures. Thanks to you for this collection and thanks to everyone that made these skins.

Hi folks,

The starting post has been updated to Version 2 of our Skin Pack.
The new version completely replaces the old one.

Changes:
  • New plane types and new skins have been added (naturally)
  • Surplus, repetitive Squad Skins have been stripped (Menacing Ferrets and Wing Walkers are most prominent examples, they "spammed" many plane folders with their squad skins before)
  • Compression has been changed from zip to 7zip
    Since the new LZMA2 compression algorithm has been used, you might need to use 7zip itself to decompress the files in case your "tool of choice" doesn't fully support LZMA2 (e.g. some older tools support LZMA only)
  • The number of supported planes in this pack has increased from 33 to 38.
  • The number of available skins in this pack has decreased from 5077 to 4330 (that's because of removing squad skins, the real useable skins have massively increased)
  • The total download size has decreased from 30GB to 12GB, thanks to the new compression algorithm used
  • The total extracted size has increased from 45GB to 48GB, that's because more 4K skins are in this pack now

Torrent will follow as soon as it's ready.

Thank you very much Mike for the updated links, really appreciated. 8)

With the earlier link I tried twice to download the whole package but it failed so I had to take each folder separately, with the new link the whole thing downloaded no problem. ;)


Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

Yep, too bad.
It's a skin coming from the "Luftwaffe Simulated Air Combat (LSAC)" group and it's broken.
Unfortunately even the latest version of their skin pack includes the same broken skin.
