Hi! I'm an active poster on the EU Forums, and recently (late Patch 9.14 I think?) got into making some mods which I have posted over there. They're not on par with the more experienced modmakers, such as Milkym4n or FastestClassic, but I hope they're good enough for some. I created this account over here to more directly offer my mods to the NA Community too and will try to keep things actively updated on this side of the globe too.
As I do not want to spam the forums and create all of my current mods in separate threads like I have on the EU Forums, I will mostly just offer small descriptions of each of my mods, the download links and links back to the EU Forums for the full details (though most of the details should be included in the READMEs within each mod, if they're not, I apologise!). With that said, let's start.
Custom Camouflage Pack:
I typically use Aslain's XVM Modpack (?), and one of the things I would constantly use was "Enhanced Camos" by pold77 (?). I used this for awhile before eventually figuring out I could edit the camouflage using Paint.NET, and had some fun editing the patterns. A friend suggested I should actually upload a pack of these, which I did. They replace the existing patterns with new ones (there are previews of each so you hopefully shouldn't have trouble accidentally using one you don't want to), offering lots of different appearances to your favourite tanks.
Some nations obviously have more patterns available than others; namely the Germans, hehe; and I'm still constantly trying to add more though more recently I've been a bit lost in adding new patterns. While some patterns are based off of historical patterns, none of them are 100% Supposed to be accurate; a colour may be off, or a pattern may be slightly wrong, you get the idea; and are simply meant to offer more interesting options for camouflage.
A warning before downloading is that you should not immediately extract the files to your WoT Files. Extract them to your Downloads folder or somewhere like that, as extracting it directly to your WoT Files will not do anything and might actually cause problems. That said, here's the direct link;
And the link to the EU Forums thread if you'd like;
A final few previews of some more patterns;
Bronze Green British Tanks Pack:
Much like above, this is something that started out as just for myself and was initially only for like, one tank (and started simply as a suggestion from the WoT Console forums), but then developed into doing the whole tech tree (including SD Models, though they obviously are not as nice looking as the HD Ones). It's not on par with some of FastestClassic's works, which are the closest thing I can compare to especially with his British Olive Green pack (which I highly recommend!) and with the 9.16 Update I am working on improving the appearance of a lot of the HD Models, only currently present on the Crusader SP, Conqueror, FV215b (183), Centurion Action X, FV4005 As well as Milkym4n's Matilda BP HD Remodel and FV4202 (P) War Thunder and maybe one more that I might be forgetting (but I don't think so).
This pack does not affect the Cromwell B, Chieftain Mk. 6 (obviously) or T95/Chieftain (but it does affect the Chieftain/T95. Confusing, aren't they?), but every other vehicle is affected. I have no plans to change the Cromwell B, but assuming the latter two do eventually show up I will definitely change them, as well as updating models that are changed to HD With every patch. Again like above, it's not meant to be 100% Accurate, and is simply present to offer an alternate colour to the original British tank colour (that I personally am not a fan of, but that's me).
unto the breach like above, do not immediately extract this to your WoT Files. Extract the 0.9.16 Folder inside to your WoT Folder. If you want to specifically remove tanks, just delete the new folder in your WoT Files and if you don't want the changed icons in the garage/tech tree then feel free to delete those too under the "gui" folder in your res_mods. Inside the pack should also be alternate versions, offering a camouflaged painted barrel for the Sherman Firefly and the stock Tortoise gun, and Bronze Green versions of Milkym4n's British tanks (at the moment only the Matilda BP and FV4202 (P) War Thunder, as mentioned above).
Sorry about rambling, here's the download;
Once more, the link to the EU Forums for more and previews below (note that the previews are still the old version, though that is still present on most tanks);
Sherman Firefly Camouflaged Barrel (Original and Bronze Green Versions):
This, atleast the Bronze Green version is available in the pack above. I made this a standalone version to also include the original British tank colour version and in case someone only wants this rather than downloading say, the whole pack above. It was also one of the first things I did with the pack above, so that was still a work in progress when this was finished. Anyway, straight to the point. If the name isn't enough to give it away, this is something of a skin for the Firefly that gives it the infamous (?) white barrel paint for both 17pdr guns on the Firefly.
A word of warning, Marks of Excellence overlap the barrel paint a bit and look somewhat off. This is something I'm considering changing by moving the Marks of Excellence closer to the turret, but that's at the moment just theory. Camouflage also slightly affects the barrel paint (though again, this is something I may change in time), and a friend from my old clan did a preview of camouflages on it (with the Bronze Green version) as I do not own a Firefly myself.
Just to note, this is an older version of the skin, as the version now uses 4k textures for the paint (and, if that is too much, there are 2k versions available; if there are still problems with that, please inform me) to give it a much smoother appearance.
The direct download link, the link to the EU Forum thread and previews below;
Panzer 58 Mutz Flat-Olive Skin/Remodel + Schwarzpanzer 58 (Panzer 58 Black Friday):
This was an idea in my head for awhile. I hate, and I mean I despise the original appearance of the Mutz. Something about it just gets at me. For a long time I used Milkyman's MPz. 58 Remodel which basically gave me this idea. I made it as a skin originally, which is included in the mod for those who prefer it, but this was still not enough for me, so I tried to switch the gun model to that of the Centurion Action X's L7 Gun. Let's just say, it didn't go swell for me, as I have little experience with remodelling, if any at all.
With the help of Milkym4n (and by "help" I mean he did all the work, hehe) this was made possible, giving the Mutz the appearance atleast slightly of the Panzer 61. It has a flat-olive colour to it (as again, the original appearance of the Mutz is ugly IMO), though I may experiment more with this colour in the future.
Do note that once more, the screenshots above are slightly outdated as the tank is now more scratched and whatnot. Like with, well, pretty much all of the mods I suggest saving it somewhere such as your Downloads folder first, reading the READMEs and choosing which you would prefer. Both versions come (or atleast should) with icon changes to if you'd like them, and also have textures for the HD Client.
Additionally, at the moment the tank reverts to the original gun upon death even when using the remodelled version (as there are no "crash" files at the moment), which is something I will likely change within the next few days so expect a quick update to this around then. Once more, sorry for the rambling, here is the download as well as link to the original EU Thread, followed by some in-game previews;
One final thing to note is for other skinmakers, here is a version with the base Panzer 58 (specifically, not the Mutz) textures, offering you the chance to make your own skins for this L7 Wielding version of the Mutz. I know that Milkym4n was working on his own version, and since he basically did the work for me here, if he wishes for me at all to remove this link I will. If you do make your own skins using this, please credit him over me.
This mod can now also be installed for the Schwarzpanzer 58 (Panzer 58 Black Friday). Most of the same text you see above is of course still applicable and I will also be hopefully making a version of the L7A3 Remodel alone available which doesn't actually change the Schwarzpanzer 58 Skin, but that'll be something still to come right now. There may be some issues, namely;
-at the moment MoEs might not work. This is because to remove the Bundecross on the turret I simply lowered the alpha to, well, nothing and this might affect MoEs, though I'm not sure. I can't be bothered digging through replays to find one of a Schwarzpanzer who already has Marks to confirm this, so yeah, inform me if that does happen as it's not exactly intentional.
-as the Schwarzpanzer uses the Panzer 58 Hull instead of the Mutz, it lacks the boxes and gas cans on the sides of the hull at the front, and also the "DLP1" or whatever-that-means tags you see on the front and rear mudguards as I never actually put that on the hull_01 textures for the Mutz. If people want those tags though I can add them in.
Other than that, please enjoy and inform me of any issues.
T-54 to Israeli Tiran 5Sh Remodel v1.0
I owe the idea of this to SkaerKrow, who made a Tiran 4Sh model for the T-54 1st Prototype if I understand correctly (sorry Skaer if I'm completely wrong). Initially I didn't get far with it at all since I cannot do remodels like, at all, but thankfully I got a lot of assistance from Milkym4n. To quote a few things from my EU Thread that I'd like to get out of the way (which is a bit unusual since I normally leave these out on this thread to save space);
-this remodel and skin changes the appearance of the T-54 To appear similar to the Israeli Tiran 5Sh (T-55 With 105mm gun, essentially). The tank has been recoloured to Sinai Grey, and some decals have been added as well to further the appearance (I highly suggest if you can to use the HD Version, as the decals are of course pretty poor looking with the SD Textures).
-Practically the entire remodel I owe to Milkym4n, as I know basically nothing on how to do that stuff, so insane credit to him!
-the tank should also have camouflage appearing on the roadwheels, again, courtesy of Milkym4n!
-the icons with this are completely optional, as some may not necessarily be happy with them. They should be simple to use, but if not, there is a little bit on it below.
-I mentioned above that it's the Tiran 5Sh, which is a T-55 and not a T-54. As such, most of the model has been switched to the T-55A Parts, which can mean a few issues (which while I'm incredibly worried about, I think should be expected with some remodels). To illustrate one I know of, the T-55A Turret lacks the loader's cupola, which the T-54 Very much has. They shouldn't be a big issue, but do be warned about it.
-purchased emblems/inscriptions won't appear on the tank from my knowledge (if they do then, well, they shouldn't, so tell me!) and frankly, I probably will make sure they never do as I don't think they go well with the rest of the skin.
-camouflage works with the remodel, but may appear a bit odd to quite obviously to the change from the standard Eastern Green to Sinai Grey
Anyway, here's the download. Remember: DO NOT UNZIP THIS INTO YOUR WORLDOFTANKS FOLDER. Unzip it into downloads, or your documents, or wherever you find best. Just do not unzip it to WorldOfTanks.
There's instructions both in the mod and below, I'd suggest reading those first! I'm putting a bit of trust into everyone here to read those, so here's the link. Just make sure you read the instructions.http://www.mediafire.com/file/4au2jglmljfnuas/%5B0.9.17.0%5D+Israeli+Tiran+5Sh+Remodel+for+T-54+v1.3.rar
And finally, the link back to my EU Thread, just because I like to do that.
And also, if you wish to take this model further than I have, read the second post on the EU Thread. If you want to add anything to it or correct me on anything in that post, feel free to.
Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy any of these that you download. If you have any issues or questions please feel free to mention them, I will try to answer them as best as I can and will actively try to keep this thread updated. I hope everything was clear enough as well, and if the READMEs in the mods don't cover it either, please mention.
As I do on my EU Threads, I would like to suggest some skinmaker/remodellers that offer better work than me. If you have any suggestions to add to the list, feel free to also tell me!
