At first glance, the only possibility to cheat with custom skins that would come up in my mind was transparent skins.
But that would be an easy thing to solve: Just set a certain threshold value for the average alpha value, e.g. if a skin's average transparency is more than 20% then there's something wrong with it.

The opposite way (high-visibility skins) might be tempting for squad members to see "who is who", but in that case, synching the skins across the net would actually make things better.
Because the way it is right now, squads can use high-vis skins online (if the server is set to allow custom skins at all that is), but only the squad members themselves will benefit from this, for all others the planes just carry their (camouflage) default skin.

In that sense, custom skin network sync is an anti-cheat mechanism in itself.

H, Mike

I seem to be having a problem with this download, I can download but can't seem to open any of the files, I.m currently using winrar 5.71. Maybe I'm just not understanding how to download and install into BOS or BOB. TC

Maybe your downloads are simply corrupted?
Either try to re-download one of the files for testing, or use the Torrent (which is corruption proof in itself).

Winrar 5.71 is supposed to work as well, considering that it's been what created the set ;)

Would anyone have any P-38 skins? :)

@Venator77, have you got the latest 7z? Have you set it to open .rar files in the settings menu of 7z?

Yeah, but I can't. 7zip keeps saying can't open archive.
