I also got some more Skin ideas for BF(i dont have names for them)
-Skin that keeps the natural black and light blue parts of BF but replaces the White with a NOT SHINY orange(there are lots of Skins here that would look good but have that metallic Shine which kinda ruins them)
-Skin that keeps BF`s natural black but replaces the light blue with a green like that used in rafs´retro future Skin and makes the White parts a matte grey
sorry for double-Posting but i got These ideas a bit too late

I discovered a Major Problem with texture swapper:
As said on stream it adds extra data to techs,making saves saved while texture swapper was active unloadable when it is not installed and i recently discovered that techs saved while the mod was active will not Show up in your tech list if the mod becomes outdated or is uninstalled.this happens even if you Arent using any custom Skins and is unremovable since you cant overwrite something you cant load in the first place(at least not with a mod-free Version of the same tech).Strangely techs built in coop modes seem to be immune to this.

techs saved while the mod was active will not Show up in your tech list if the mod becomes outdated or is uninstalled.
I recently pushed an update to the Texture Swapper mod that should now actively try to scrub off the data that the game does not like. Try resaving your techs and saves with the update on it

I have a proposal for @SadKen and @Rafs . It's sad to see this "customs skins" feature in the game neglected and forgotten after all the hype. The rest of the dev team clearly has bigger things on the mind, then new skins. At the same time, we have these awesome paint-jobs, that are inaccessible to code-noobs, like myself. So let's just integrate these into the game and make them official! I don't know how much work that would be, but it's surely less, than starting from scratch.
From what I gather, a corp can have up to 15 alternate paint-schemes, so when all of Rafs' stuff is imported, you can pick and choose for the vacant spots. I'm sure, the rest of the mod team would gladly contribute.
