This camoflage pattern replaces the diagonal stripes ("Normandy") pattern. You could rename it to replace something else, but then it will turn out a diffrent colour unless you modify the customization.xml file.

This is just the winter camouflage pattern renamed! You could make this change yourself, but I've chosen to upload this for your ease of use. Just extract the the ZIP-file in the res_mods\[game version] folder. The extraction should automatically construct the proper folder structure.

I play almost exclusively German tanks and therefore I haven't bothered to make camouflage patterns for the tanks of other nations. I might do it if requested though, but I would be unable to test it in-game on other than Tier I tanks.

Can't download it, I get this error:

FATAL ERROR: Connection to database server failed.
MYSQL Error:Too many connections

Could you upload it to mediafire please?

Thanks.

Funny, because it is both WG camo pattern and WG camo colour. All I did was rename a copy of the WG plain winter camoflage to overwrite the "Normandy" Stripes camouflage. I didn't even have to mess around with the colours since the sand colour was the main colour of said camouflage.

 

Glad you like it though. I'd like to see more people make camos. There's a lot of potential in working with camouflages that you don't get from working with skins. (Skins of course have other advantages.)

IS THE CAMO FREE TO PUT ON YOUR TANKS?

No.

You either pay with ingame credits for 7days/30days. Or you pay gold, and get it forever.

As I was hoping people could at least figure out from the screenshot, you have to buy the camo to put it on your tanks. However, if you have already bought the camo that this replaces then you don't have to buy it again. All this mod does is replace the texture of one of the camouflage patterns. The game don't see it as a new pattern, it still thinks that it is the Normandy stripes pattern. See it like a reskin; you still have to buy the tank to use it, but if you already have the tank you don't have to buy it again.

But the question is: couldn't this be released as a normal skin so that i don't need to buy anything?

Well, i guess the game doesn't allow to have different (client-side) skins dependent on map type? Still it could be interesting to have it as a regular client-side skin.

Good notion. I made my own version of this then I come here to see you did the same.

 

WG should take heed of what is going on here and release more new camo patterns for us, including the pure desert german and british ones. :)
