I'm not sure how this works, (can I simply replace a file in the WoT directory, or is it more complicated?)

 

Anyway, I would love to have my T-29 painted black. As WG still doesn't have the paint available for tier 7, could you help me out?

The colour on Unduchable's Patton looks absolutely awsome! Can you make my T-29 the same? Pretty please?

Shiny, sparkly black chrome EVEN, thank you very much! 

 

 

....or if you got very much free time on your hands, a remake of the lootbox skin for the Batchat so that it fits the EVEN, 1357, 1375 or 1390...

Metalic Brussel Sprout Green for my CGC arty - failing that Metalic Purple or last Choice Black Chome or Gold in that order depending on what is possible without causing you a ton of work;-) Edit - thanks for whatever you chose in any case - most appreciated that you are doing this again :-)

Luckily, I have a different method that should hopefully make it work, which I'll test tomorrow and hopefully that means I'll be able to actually upload them. If it turns out to not work, well, I'm gonna be pissed (though fair enough, I should have probably checked before starting the special again, but I kinda automatically assumed that there wouldn't be a problem like that).

 

Ok, yeah, that works to my knowledge. It might cause other issues I'm unaware of (I'm literally about to jump into playing tanks tonight with the KV-4 Set on since I have that working and being that I'll be playing at VIII, hopefully I should see atleast one), but it fixes that issue with it messing up on max. or ultra graphics.

Not really fitting for the rules:

Block Quote

-Gold, Silver, Bronze or Copper; or something else*: the main four are back again, as expected. I actually dunno if I still have the Copper colour saved BUT BOYS WE'LL FIND OUT. The main difference from previous years is I am totally open to different colours; they will still be metallic, just be to be clear.

 

But maybe I'll do something like that in my own time later. Not likely though tbh, unless I get a Skorp G In lootboxes and want to swap the skin off. :P

Very roughly speaking, you'd just copy and paste the "vehicles" folder from the download into your res_mods -> -patch number (atm, 1.3.0.1) and it should work. I'll maybe get something a bit more explanatory later with images if necessary. But, mind you,

T29*, but yeah, I can do that.

Added to the OP. I'll go for the green unless you're unhappy with the results and move onto the others from there.

I'd very much appreciate a Metallic Egpytian Blue for my FV215b(183) if possible.

Just a question just came up.

 

Do the old skins you made still work with the new graphics ? You made the golden Maus for me in the first year and it should be on my HD somewhere. Does that still work ?

Think AliceUnchained's purple metallic E-50 From last year. >>>Let's try not do multiple colours though or silly patterns<<<, since I'd rather not have to spend a full day on just one tank when there's other requests to get through.

 

JGBauer's request works for example since it's just the colour rather than trying to actually do any sort of pattern.

Anything pre-1.1 (I think) most likely has issues, so yeah, it probably doesn't work. It most likely ends up looking something like this (borrowing from another modder):

Spoiler

 

My other post on the first page about issues already also suggests that no, they most likely will not work anymore without issues due to WG Fiddling with the way textures work (in a short summary: beforehand I could just delete the standard textures and only use the _hd ones, but remove that part so they load as the default textures and nothing more. Now that doesn't work and both standard and _hd have to be saved differently, which also doesn't seem to work for me for different graphic settings, likely based on me using Paint.NET Rather than something else like Photoshop or GIMP).

Too bad. Any chance in redoing it ? I still have the files if that makes it any easier ...

I would like a shinny gold Jg.Pz.E100 so the camo will match the shells I spam when I want to feel good?!

I can do it free of charge if you want. I should have the files somewhere myself and logically I should be able to fix it up in the same way I'm getting these to work (will get into soon since I'm just sorting out the Patton for upload alongside the KV-4).

In case you can fix the texture issue, my request would be a Golden Maus. Need that gold brick to share the Holiday cheer.

This was the one he did for me the first year. It was glorious. And as above mentioned he will do one again ;)

*inb4 double post since forum wouldn't post it before

 

Undutchable's Black M46 Patton and Dava's Gold KV-4 downloads added to the OP. Let me know if there's any problems since like I said, I've had to change it up a bit to how I'd normally do it to get it running in theory without issues. Otherwise, as a reminder on how to install them:

-download the zip from the link

-unzip using WinRAR, 7zip or whatever

-extract the "vehicles" folder to the respective patch folder in res_mods in your World of Tanks game files; the current patch is 1.3.0.1, so the path should look like res_mods -> 1.3.0.1 -> vehicles -> *nation* -> *vehicle*

 

As above, if you just want me to update one from a previous year, it's possible I should be able to do that since what I'm doing to fix the texture issue is renaming the textures and then editing the paths to accommodate that, which for whatever reason fixes it and I see no reason that shouldn't work on those unless they're tanks that have had changes to their textures between this year and whichever year they're from.

I unfortunately lied, I only have the 2017 Stuff. However, it still stands if you just upload it for me to download (funny innit, I'll be literally downloading my own work from you :D).

Technically I think that is possible by editing the AO, but I haven't done that in FOREVER.

I think this year I'm going a bit out of order, which I feel bad about. Mind you, I'd feel worse not uploading anything at all tomorrow because I'll be power-grinding Indien-Panzer with these Christmas bonuses, so I did two of the easier ones tonight. I'll be uploading them tomorrow, ELC EVEN and Jagdpanzer E100 Respectively (I'm actually really quite a fan of the Gold with the Christmas garage :P).
