Grandpa's Remodels

 

I have been working to get some of the older remodels to work in the new HD formats, plus some "mix and match" swapping of model pieces between tanks to produce a new model. I will be posting the remodels here, plus you can find them and custom skins for standard models on my website. wot.lotstuff.info or lotsastuff.info/wot Then from menu at top Skins then Modifications and Crewmembers.

 

Most of the remodels are swaps of modules from another model or  remodel to form the specific combination or look.  These come from Supertest models, if I can get them and others are parts and pieces of remodels by other much more accomplished modders, including: milkym4n, N_E_L_U_M_B_O, foxerfit, Desyatnik_Pansy, TheFalkonett, Historical Remodelling Project, goodman12, and HiBan 

 

Here are some things to remember:

  • Some of the models, especially the crew models are parts and pieces from some older SD mods, some go as far back as 7.4.  In that case, I have made a "hybrid", a mixture of SD and HD components.  usuall the HD chassis, gun, and sometimes turret and SD hull with crew. I try to enhance the SD graphics as best I can, but its not HD quality.
  • Camo usually will not work.  This is because, I haven't figured out how to convert the AO files yet. So I will include within the download a mod that turns off camo.  It still works in game to add to your camo value, but does not appear.
  • In most cases these will be wotmod files.  There is a video below to show how to install these. If you have a res_mods/x.x.x/vehicles directory with a mod or custom skin for the tank you are installing, delete it.  The skins in the res_mods file will over ride the ones in the wotmod file. 
  • In many I have left teh paint.net (pdn) files for the skins. So if your into skinning, the pdn files are in the wotmod file, which is easy to open and revert to the res_mods format.  
  • I have posted images to imgur and downloads in a folder on the Yandex Disk.  Most of these do not require any scripts changes.  I have tested each in garage and battle to make sure.  BUT since I run a lot of mods and remodels, it may work for me and not you, just let me know, prefer PM, and I will fix it.
  • To choose a remodel, first take a look at my You Tube Channel or the image album.  Look it over and locate the modification you want.  Then go to the Yandex download directory or my website to get that file.

I will be posting the remodels in separate message on this topic.  In each message area there will be:

  • a link to the imgur album containing images of the remodels,
  • a download link to the package containing the remodel and
  • any videos of the remodels in that category:

 

They are set up by category:

  • American (USA) Remodels - message #5
  • Russian message #12
  • German message #3
  • French message #4
  • China message #13
  • Japan message #14
  • Artillery - all nations - message #17

 

Enjoy and let me know if issues (PM preferred)

I had a question about an older skin for the M4 that you have posted on your site.  It's the remodel that changes the American M4 to the M4a2 from the training area, the download from your site doesn't work and I was wondering if it was because it wasn't updated for the HD update or if it was something else.  I love the M4 but there's no reskins or remodels for it that work anymore sadly.  I love the rest of your work and use just about all of your remodels and skins.

I'll check the download, should still be working.  Will post here when I have it right.  It works, but NOT in conjunction with teh Ram II as they duplicate files and the new wotmod format doesn't like that.

 

It was the scripts file.  I have corrected the download now and it is working.

Sweet!  Thank you a ton.  I love the M4 but the vanilla model is not the greatest.

The download for the US Medium remodel pack on your site gives a 404 error.

You can also use the model files to remove LOD requirements.

 

Take the model files from the lod0 folder and remove the <extent> and <parent> nodes from the files.

Great tip, thanks for that.  Was wondering why some worked and others didn't.  I went the opposite way and added lod folders while deleting model files DUH! :-)

That also works but it increases file sizes. A model file is prefered especially for custom models since most modders don't bother to create actual LOD model but just copy the highest quality one to the other folders.
