I want to make a request for a remodel of my beloved Merkava Mk.IV for the T110E5.
I've already seen a Merkava remodel on a russian site, but it's for the Lowe. Can I ask if it's possible to convert the Lowe model to T110E5 model, so there's no need to give some work to the modders? :teethhappy:
Uhm, so... I need to post something else or give other infos? I'm not a Forum expert so, give me any indication to what-to-do and, thanks in advance!  :smile:

I tried to get this working for my T-50-2 (simply because i don't have a T110e5), but i got problems with the turret.

I've tried the Lowe one on the M103, it had an all red hull (Merkava shaped) with the normal M103 turret but covered with weird textures (eg: there was a piece covered on the gun with the gear that appears on the loadings, and some houses, bushes, trees textures)

[EDIT]: I gave a try to the BatChat. remodel on my M103 and this was the result:

I am maintaining a thread on a Chinese forum that allows you to swap many ingame tanks with modern models. Including Merkava MK4. Actually this is the forum the author of merkava mk4 first released his work.
The link is here
But one have to register on that forum in order to see the download link because of the "tradition".

If a lot of people request this, I could create a clone thread on this forum. Otherwise you will have to make do with the Chinese characters for now...


Basically what I did is to convert other people's work into tank models that is not tied to any ingame tank. They will use its own unique path with nation folder like NATO and WAPA. I call them the standalone version of tank models. So that when I want to swap this model with any ingame tank I can just place an xml patch file to tell the render to load models from the new location.

So far the following new models are converted. or simply included if its author released it as a standalone model:
stryker, M2A2 bradley, leopard2A6, M1A2 ODS camo, BTR80 with tracked suspension, type99, merkava mk4, M109A6, M60A1

Many ingame tanks are supported. to name a few,
E50M
Panther
Panther2
E75
T57 hvy
T34 hvy
E50
lowe
t62a
Tiger
Tiger P
Tiger 2
WZ120
M103
T29
T110E5
is-3
and many more.  although for a specific new model, xml patches are only created for some of the tanks. The repository is growing however.

A quick view for the first part of the download list:

And for your request, if the merkava you have downloaded is stored under
res_mods/0.8.5/vehicles/terryzxc/Merkava4


then you only need this xml patch for T110E5

I've downloaded the package you linked, but can you please give me the M103.xml file so I can test it with the Bat Chat. model on the M103? (I don't have the T110E5 yet  :teethhappy: )

But most people would swap M103 with M1A2 instead~

Ok I've tried the .xml file you sent to me and it doesn't work. (Used a clean M103 file and I've put in the Bat Chat. remodel - nothing / Tried to use the clean Bat Chat. files, dragged into the M103 folder and then put in the Bat Chat. model - nothing)

The result was "updating modules" and game freezing.

Maybe your bat version of merkava is not the vanilla one made by terryZXC but already modified by someone else?
or maybe you simply installed it in the wrong way. terry's merkava is a standalone model. It should have its model folder placed under res_mods/0.8.5/vehicles/terryzxc/Merkava4. ie you should not copy its content to vehicles/american/M103 or anything like that. Just extract the rar as it is.
Oh, at the time of its release the game version is still 0.8.4. You should change that folder name.

Here is the link to terryzxc's original work, which has a xml patch included for batchatillion. remove that xml if you don't want bat be swapped..
then apply the m103 patch I provided.
http://pan.baidu.com...35&uk=990741033
and image preview, just to make sure this is the model you want. There are indeed two versions made by different authors.

I don't really know if it's a modified model, but the model I've downloaded it's called "Bat Chatillon25t n°34 terryzxc"
By the way I will try to make a separate folder for the Merkava and then add the M103.xml just to try it out. Oh and, thanks alot for all the support and help you're giving to me  :smile:

[EDIT]
Followed the instructions, I've put the Merkava model into the vehicles folder and not swapping the M103 itself, then used the .xml file you provided and this was the result:
        

As you can see, the model is the Merkava Mk.IV but it says "M103 Heavy Tank" it worked!  :teethhappy:
The only thing is that now, the tank model is so small! Bat Chat. scale, M103 firepower  :tongue:

It's good to know. Working as intended ;-)

But personally, I wouldn't use models so different in term of hitbox for gaming. It's really a pain in the behind trying to hit the cmder hatch of type59 with a ridiculous swap model. Unless I'm using arties, my favorite.
I use swap models mainly during replay for entertainment.

That's the main purpose of this remodel request, I'm currently running a YouTube channel where (sometimes) I put some WoT videos in there. And this time I wanted to rock out on a badass Merkava  :trollface:

Then at some point you may want to mod the guns.xml file to change the muzzle blast effect. Because the vanilla shape of the blast can be different from the swapped model. especially guns with a muzzle break.
