So this is my very first attempt at making my own skin... I had sent a few messages out to some skinners, but they were too busy to make this. I would like to thank you for all that you do and for making me get off my but and try to make it myself. I used the Jg. Pz. E-100 because i thought it would be easier to work with. BOY WAS I WRONG!!!!! There was some many little parts to have to find and paint. And a lot of trial and errors. But i am proud of what i have painted. 

 

If your as old as me you know the old show Knight Rider and his car (Knight Industries Two Thousand) K.I.T.T .... Well this skin is K.A.R.R (Knight Automated Roving Robot), the prototype of K.I.T.T .... I know i still have some tweeking to do but let me know what you think. And before you say it, I know i need to lighten the black. I would love to figure out how to get the scanner bar animated for a better affect. Anyone know how too?

 

Thanks,

Possum21

But congrats and keep working

Good, except no tanker/infantryman is going to hang their rifle on the outside of the vehicle.  Just not done.

Its aesthetic. Nobody said the remodel was authentic. But nevertheless is always one guy who has to find a hair in the soup. Smile_amazed.gif

a good way to correct the overwhelming black.. is to try messing around with the contrast and or black / white tool on the AM.DDS in your photo editing program.. it will evenly darken the tank without losing the tank.. that way you can still see all the scratch and dents, and discolorations instead of just flood filling the am.dds with pitch black and saving it..

 

Just make sure to do this with the Default AM files.. not the repainted ones.. or they could be worse then what you started..

Simply move your current recolor out of the vehicle folder directory, then extract the default ones back in and then do the above :)..

 

And your more then welcome :)

I like the look Baba.. just to much clutter for me though.. If you've seen my tanks, most of them are pretty much smooth bodies.. its a chevy thing :)

 

Links to them are in my Signature :)

I was told by 2 skinners that they didn't have time and I usually I like to do things myself. But I didn't know where or how to do it until I started searching and l saw your guides and links... Now I'm my own worst enemy lol

and I will have to disagree with you.. Example T 50 2 has like 2 of them on the tank.. look at the model, I also think there is a rifle on a few others too.. :)

Maybe its a broken one?

From a crewmember who was killed?

And now he still 'rides into battle' with them?

...it could happen.

 

Nice job Possum!

Keep it up.

:)
