Yeah.  I love the Pravada skins myself.  I think they look much better
(except IS2) then the paint WoT uses.  If that's an A-20 I see, I'll go
install now.

you should try and expand the Pravda line to other tanks (within the sensha-do rules) as well as adopt a standard (base coat, no color) scheme for the Pravda tanks.

Isn't the white their base color?

And good point, though I'll do that after my paperworks.
Maybe on the holidays.

I personally think that the white was just painted on as camo in the match.

Maybe you're right. (And I like them snowy/tannish white anyway)
But to get their base color might be a problem.

The scene with Miho telling the story of her former match with Pravda does have their tanks with a different color.
It's hard to distinguish with the sepia tone though.


Speaking of base coats, I realized it late that the Black Forest Tiger is Wittman's and desert color implies Afrika Korps.
I hope to see more on the Finals.

@jact:

are you going to do the whole BF lineup?

also, including the Ooarai hetzer?

seems your skins were almost spot on w/ the Pz4 and Hetz lol.

Hilarious in hindsight.  :Smile_veryhappy:

Never knew the Torsys reskin and bonus Hetzer will actually be used.
And yes, currently editing them as of now.

And will continue the Black Forest pack.


About those megapacks, I've decided that I'll leave an original "lite" version for those actually shown in the anime.
An expansion skin pack will be a new download for those who want a whole German/Soviet rehaul.

It saves them download size too for those tanks that they only want.

^ Will update. I left it untouched for so long due to skinning Pravda and Black Forest.

I really love these skins.  My only critisism I can offer in the most constructive manner ever is something I decided to toy with myself:
Editing the skin via a copy/paste gave me the idea to replace the discolored tracks on the tanks:

That's been the only thing that has caught my eye about your skins: the fact that the tracks on the tank chassis are of a different color than the actual tracks on the tanks themselves.  This gives it a slightly more realistic look IMO.  I tried working on the Tiger I skin, but when I opened it up in GIMP 2, there was a lot of odd artifacting on the image (like little holes), and when I flattened and saved the image and ran it in WOTViewer, it looked like there were strange spots on the tank.

Anyways, just throwing out some constructive critisism about your skins.

Not the chassis tracks, right?

Yes, currently I'm just applying color overlays onto the tank skins.
If given the time, I'll go over them one by one again and remove the color overlays on details that isn't the tank hull.

Thanks for the criticism.

Hate to be a bumhead, but I'd like to point out that the Oorai insignia on the other side is on backwards x3
Sorry, just had to point that out ;_;

^ Cant do nothing about it if said area is mirrored on the model.

BTW.

I just noticed that your skins lack a blanked out CM file.

Camouflage Map? I tend not to fiddle with those not primarily concerned with the actual textures.
That, and because I'm not entirely sure how to modify them properly. (Normal maps for example)

CM is easy to manipulate.

black = no camo

white = camo.

basically i brought this up since most of us use blanked out CM files to cancel the camo system on skinned tanks- unless someone is using the other camo blanker mod which blanks out the camo system entriely.

also, NM is the harder file to work upon, as it needs special conversion via the Nvidia filters.
