It is currently being upgraded with some amazing new weapons +other goodies and I have
also made an upgrade for its main skins ......  Skins for parts and the new pilot.

In the future this airplane will have another upgrade and I will adjust and paint the skins to fit the
new changes (if needed).

In the meantime, take this cool aircraft for a ride and enjoy it ! It is amazing !

Skins don't show up in my BAT 7. Maybe it's not the II Plus. Anyone else with BAT 7 noticed this?

I  also have the no-show skins problem in my Bat 07. The skins files display in the folder and are listed in the game menu but do not change from the default when selected. The earlier Sharkmouth and Ace of Spades skins swap in and out fine. I run with BATDLLS-02 but tried BATDLLS-01 in its place to see if that made a difference but with BATDLLS-01 no Harrier file names or skins showed up in the menu.

Perhaps when we want to apply 1024x1024 standard resolution custom skins on the aircraft, the default skin resolution of it has to be 1024x1024 standard one.

AV-8B's default skin is 2048x2048 high resolution one, so every custom skins may have to be in the resolution 2048x2048.

After overwriting default skin file "\#SAS\!!!!_US_Marine_Aviation_Pack\3do\plane\AV-8B\summer\skin1o.tgb" by 1024x1024 down grade one (and also default damage skins "~\3do\plane\AV-8B\Damage1o.tga" and "Damage2o.tga" ? ), those 1024x1024 custom skins will be OK.

I was thinking it may have been a size issue but I went the other way - resizing some skins files to 512 x512 and voila! the skins appeared. BTW this is also raised as a  problem over at the #WAW2  Romanian Barbarossa Campaign for the He-112B where the downloaded skins did not show when selected but when resized to 512 x512 there they were.

If you use my recent skin-upgrade, you will have no problem in using both 1024x1024 skins and 2048x2048 HD skins. ;)

Thanks Max. I was just adding the skins to the Basic Bat as I thought the Aviation Pack had been incorporated into the Bat 07 round of updates. I went back in and installed per your post, laid on the skin upgrade - and yes everything works just fine - and a fine piece of work it is too.
