Unfortunately I wasn't able to complete the chinese decoration collection but I really like the reward camo... So I put together a little mod to replace the chinese rental camo with the new year camo (yes I know it will only be visible to me). I modified the style's list.xml to change the camo and paint IDs. It works in the garage but shows the normal rental camo in game. I assume the server is overriding the xml with the "correct" values. Do any experienced modders/reskinners know how to bypass this? It's not as simple as "replace the texture.dds" because it's a style with a base paint and camo pattern not a regular camo (paint is not stored as a texture anyways).

That's cheating.

In the sense I didn't fork over $20 to complete the collection with loot boxes, sure. But considering it's not visible to anyone else I don't see how it's any different than any other tank skin mod.

I completed three sets, wouldn't have spent any money on it either but missed some missions.

$20 of boxes for Christmas finished it off.

Maybe I'm just unlucky then. Was barely able to finish the traditional collection (got hung up on the last tier 5 decoration, took 7+ crafting attempts to finally get it).

pretty sure there is a tick box at the bottom of one of the settings pages that hides/shows non historical camo?
