I just thought of this and thought I could get one now as I no longer play with a laptop. Could I have Silver ST-I?

Oh, I should be clear by the way. Even if you made a request last year, you can make one this time as well. I'm not going to turn you down just because you got one last year, especially considering I've changed the appearance a fair bit.

I'd like to thank you for last year's work,

I still have the full collection in my "special skins" folder,

 

Spoiler
 

Since it's christmas coming, I'd like to request an "patina copper" skin for the AMX M4 '49

if possible.

 

for reference:

Anyone who was posting on here last year around this time might recognise that I did a skin special last year, where I took one request per person (though some got away with more than one) to make a tank of their choosing either Gold or Silver. Here's a link to the thread, though the downloads are no longer available since I moved over to Google Drive instead of Mediafire for my mods and I no longer have any of those skins and won't recreate them just for the sake of it:

http://forum.worldoftanks.eu/index.php?/topic/605554-forumites-skin-special-this-special-is-now-over-thanks-to-everyone-who-took-part/

 

Last year however I only did it for like just over a week, from the 23rd to the 1st of January IIRC, though for Dingers I did it for an extra week or two. This year however, I'll be doing it from the 1st of December to the 25th (aka I won't be doing any today for example, even though I posted the thread). Like before, don't worry if you don't receive a skin back from me before the 25th, I'll be finishing all of the requests, I just won't be accepting anything after Christmas day itself (especially considering I have much less time nowadays to do this stuff, I will probably still be doing some well into January).

 

Alright, now that I've got that stuff out of the way, time to explain how things go again and show what's new. First off, I've changed the appearance of the skins. They will no longer be as saturated and I guess glittery, but I prefer the way they look now as stuff like the dirt or metal on tanks shouldn't also be included in the changes. They also look less pixelated than before, and you won't have to use the Soft Colours filter to get the best appearance from them. To give you an example, here is a comparison between two Gold S. Conquerors, the left being the new version, the right being the old. Let me know what you think.

Spoiler

 

Additionally, this year will include Bronze as well as another option, but more on that below. You'll see a preview of the Bronze later on in the thread, but for now let's get to the rules. They're the same as last year, but I'll repeat them for obvious reasons:

-only one request per person. This makes it much easier for me and don't worry, all download links will be posted below. That doesn't mean you can't request the same tank as someone else; for example, x requests a Golden STB-1, can request the same tank in a different colour. If perhaps accidentally requests the STB-1 In Gold too, I will inform y that it's already been done and you can request something else.

-HD Models only. SD Tanks just don't work with this. Considering how few tanks are left in SD, this shouldn't be a problem. Oh, and if you want you can also request a skin for one of the HD Models coming with 9.21. Just know that you won't be able to use it in this current patch of course, and I may not be able to really preview it considering when the Test is up or not and yeah, you get the idea.

-no remodels. Sorry to be rude if you wanted say Milkym4n's T-34-3 Model in Gold or something, but I just won't be doing them this year. I don't want to have to get permission from the uploader to do it, and especially with Milky's he is now making UML Necessary for his remodels and I don't want to have to work with something else just for this. Oh, and I don't want to ruin his remodels with these skins. :teethhappy:

-Gold, Silver and Bronze only. No fancy-schmancy patterns, no combinations of colours, just purely one of those three. Sorry, but again it's just easier for me. Let me know what you feel about the new colours, whether you like the old ones better or these new ones.

 

This thread has ended up longer than it really needed to be, for which I apologise, so to end it off I'm just going to post some previews of the new skins and otherwise, download links below as currently, I have already done the S.Conq in all three colours and four of the Chinese high tier Heavies (110 (9.21 Model), WZ-111 1-4, WZ-111 5A and the 113) in again, all three colours. So yeah, previews:

Spoiler

 

And download links (as well as the list of requests for me to keep track of):

A reskin would go into the respective game subfolder. Let's use your Golden KV-4 As an example, it would go like this:

WoT Game files (under your Local Disk or whatever and Games or wherever it's installed) -> res_mods -> 0.9.20.1.4 (though skins work with any patch unless that tank is edited) -> vehicles -> russian -> R73_KV4

 

However, you don't need to worry about most of that. Aside from the S.Conq and Chinese Heavy stuff that I already did, all you will have to do is copy the res_mods folder from the zip you download for the skin into your game files and voila, the pathing is all done for you. You'll only have to change it in the future if the patch changes, say from 0.9.20.1.4 to 0.9.21.

 

 

UrQuan didn't get a Golden KV-4 Last year, it was still SD Back then. IIRC He didn't request anything last year according to last year's thread.

 

Well, that's really easy! :)

Can I then ask for the golden KV-4 plese?

It should look really nice with this new metal texture!

And again, really nice work! :great:

You'll have to probably wait for the next patch to be able to actually use it of course, but sure.

I can't promise the fairy lights part, but Gold alone can happen. Sadly, lower graphics of course mean worse appearance of the skin. I'm not sure about SD Client specifically but I think that already ruins it, but here is a comparison of an older version of the Bronze S.Conq with maximum, medium and minimum graphics (low is very similar to minimum by the way, losing the shine almost entirely).
