Hello there,

Context:

The moment I learned how to use remodels from wgmods on any tank using UML, I kinda wanted to have the T-72 Ural, but since there is no readily available HD remodel for it, the only reasonable way in which it could be done would be to merge the T-72A and T-64A remodels together, since the 64A turret and the original 72 turret were identical IRL. 
I have tried it myself by tinkering with the custom profiles you can create in UML, but the T-64’s turret doesnt fit perfectly to the 72As hull, leaving a gap the size of a few pixels, so I figured someone with the right tools and skills could help me out. 
 

 

So, what my request for any modder willing to help would be:

-put the 64’s turret+gun on the 72’s hull, while fixing the minor texture gap that occurs between them in the process

 

And also if possible(altough not necessary)

-replace the boxes/snorkel on the 64s turret with the ones on the 72(smoke discharges are whatever, it’s up to the modder). 


 

here are the base skins:

I do have to mention that my gratitude is all I can offer for this, sadly. :(

I always wanted the early T-72 as well but this is the first time I ever heard a claim that T-72 ural used T-64A turret.

Phrasing mistake, it’s not the same turret, but the 64 turret closesly resembles the original 72 turret. It’s mostly minor details such as the snorkel that you can use to tell them apart, which is why I made the additional request to swap around the boxes and stuff on the turrets if possible too. Either way, close is better than nothing

This is a screenshot of my attempt to put the 64 turret on the 72s hull: https://imgur.com/a/6c7UrEI 
But as I said, there is a small texture gap between hull and turret if I do this with UML cuz the 72As turret is ofc bigger and I have no clue how to fix that

it's more than that. the T-72 cheek is more sloped, the roof right behind the autoloader bulge is almost flat forming a stepped shape. the turret base plate is probably also smaller in the front arc.

the bulge is also slightly more significant.

not to mention the casing ejection port. and some bolted patches. 

 

 

 

 

good news is, some friend says the WT t-72 ural is right around the corner.
