SM's pretty easy as well. It manipulates the colors reflected off of the tanks. Black =no reflection, while other colors reflect. The brighter they are, the more apparent they become.

The file's  generally half as big as the usual dds, so I usually grab layers from the base dds, reduce them to half size and place them in the same location on the UV map to give decals a little more pop.

Oh, I'm also having issues getting the skirts to work on the PzIV. The skin works fine as long as I don't try to do the remodel. The readme isn't very clear on it and from what I gather you can't use both the Hydro swap and the Torsys mod. However, I've tried that.

You can use both.
The original torsys model uses the Hydro turret as a replacement for the top turret.

Just that what the anime used is the vanilla PzIV schurzen (large gaps on the spaced turret armor), so the Hydro turret swap is optional.

And since even tank skin veterans get confused on how to apply this, I'll upload a more clearer readme.

I see. Well, I like the camouflage on the tanks so its no big deal to me.
I guess that why I dont see camo additions to the shermans players I see in game, it might not be a bad thing.

I'm just too lazy to make a camo-friendly version of the skins since it might add more hassle to the user end.

TBH, the camoschemes don't look horrible on the GuP schemes.  But if I understand this right, adding a 512x512 square CM.dds file of pure black will block out the camo scheme? Might do that for the Pravda setups that I have.
Also, tried tracking down the Torsys model of the PzIV, can't find it.  Was hoping to use the final upgrade Ankou PzIV.

Not sure who would be keeping the new gift tank... (I know I am, I missed the Tetrarch :Smile_confused: )
But I did the skin anyway. Duck Team is now available.

I can't seem to get the decals to work. For some reason it just doesn't show unless it's not supported with the latest version? I shoved the folder into the res / gui folder.

^  I was planning to skin the TOG II* as an allied destroyer.
No osprey sadly.

I'll get back to them after this GuP audio mod business. You can leave a request if you want.

EDIT: updated decals

Hey Jact, have any plans for the Chinese tree?  Should we expect anything?

Chinese Battlemasters? (maybe the prems and end tier tanks)
Maybe, don't expect too much.

And a late update post:
St. Glorianna Tank Collection - I like my consistency in skins  :Smile-hiding: , I hope daduelist doesn't mind.

Awesome St. Glorianna skins! However I noticed that the "02" on the right side of the Matilda is mirrored.

Skin on model is mirrored.
Same goes for the Churchill VII and StuG III.

Question:

Mind making a version of your RA KV-1 for the T-150?
