Hello guys, there is now a new update for the full mod in the first post as well as a smaller link to enable you to add the changes to your B.A.T. install. ;)


Six new previously unpublished skins including Ly-123 here in the older Finnish scheme are included in both links:



New defaults and files for the PaintSchemes folder are included as you will need to overwrite all the earlier versions
because the new bitmaps include areas painted for the wheel cover changes.

Please check the readme files in each link as there are differences for how the changes are handled for each link.

If you have the full mod already then please remove it and add the folder from the new link as it incorporates all
previous updates provided by me and other members, all older links have been removed.



Take care and be safe.

Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

Hello Piotrek1, if you set the Lysander on a winter map the ski undercarriage will appear instead of wheels, however, that map must have winter set in the map load file so just because you see a winter scene does not necessarily mean the skis will appear as the map has to be set correctly in its folder. ;)

That is SUPERB! Thank you, Pete!

And thanks for the new skins!

Hello again guys, hope the install was good for you and caused no problems and glad you like the update, really appreciated. 8)

I was unsure how best to implement the wheel cover changes, maybe there could have been a java solution as per the load options but in the end I thought that most people would adopt one or other of the options to their own preference so went the way I have on this one, the change is not difficult the only problem would be if a set of missions wanted different options then you would need to remember to do the alteration before playing.

The hard one is for B.A.T. because if there is a update and the folder is overwritten then you have to install the mod again, maybe the team could add this change as a JSGME option, other than that it is how it is so I hope it is the right solution for all players. ;)

There are some more coded skins I want to do, this time they will be numbered versions of the later Finnish scheme and then I will leave it alone and return to my truck project, I have been astray long enough, then again I might try a few Greek Ansons if I can find enough information. :D


Take care and be safe.

Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

Hello guys, glad to know you both also like the changes, thank you very much, really appreciated. 8)


Amazed at how quickly and effectively you work!

Not so much that I do things quickly really, generally you will first see the project some weeks after I begin work on it, this alteration is no different, what happens is I take images as I go so appearances are deceptive because you guys see quite a few of those posted in quick succession long after they were actually done, I kind of take notes using pictures as I find it is usually better to convey the process that way sometimes rather than actually describe what has happened, especially if I am also trying to make a tutorial of some sort that might have to cross language boundaries.

Once I know I am going to run with a project I then tend to stick with it as health issues permit, I struggle to use my hands and arms for long periods so I tend to spend a lot of time thinking about how I am going to do it, as you see with some of the mess I make that is not always so successful.  Because I already prepared some images in advance that allows me to post at least something whenever I reply to the thread irrespective of whether I was actually able to do anything to it for a few days or not, it gives that sense of a effectively planned and executed work flow, all smoke and mirrors really. :D

Anyway, main thing is it keeps my mind active and if it also gives you guys some enjoyment in the game then all is good and I think well worth the all the aggravation and effort that goes into it. ;)


Take care and be safe.

Glad you like the updates Mixx. 8)


Sometime today I hope to complete a set of numbered skins for Finnish aircraft, here is one:




I had information for most of the Finnish aircraft, a collection of photographs and artwork and
have all but four of the aircraft available. ;)

Estonia ordered twelve, unfortunately they were never delivered, however, I have details from
a decal sheet that provides two schemes that could have been used so I will also include those
as rumours have persisted for years that either two Spitfires or two Lysanders were actually
complete and in their delivery colours but were subsequently retained by the British Government.


Take care and be safe.


Wishing you al  the very best, Pete. ;D
