@kondi: Too much orange, too bright. Looks like you want to hide your tanks in a bag of cheetos. :mrgreen:
But I guess we are getting there. Keep it going, I hope we will have a lot of skins to choose from soon. 8) :D
I almost had my drink come out of my nose laughing at this one.

Overall, I like the later progress Kondi, keep it up!

Really all of you, well done! I always sucked at graphics modding. Impressive.

I love your other work Terminator, but while this is intriguing, it is IMHO not your best. I could be wrong, but zebra panzers are a bit much to me. However, I have never been accused of being cool. Especially by my kids :lol:

Have you tested this intringuing skin ?

The effect is surprising at first but later I find this skin not too badly. The model of camouflage at first is itself intriguing.
It is necessary to note that the screenshoot is for the format jpg usable for big images of less good quality than the format png usable for smaller images.

That makes sense Terminator. I will probably mess around with skins later on. Good work as always.

Hello. Excuse i for the English language but i'm French. When you installed Order of Battle, a file is created and called : Order of Battle - WW2 in User/My documents/My Games. Open and you find a file called Skins. Erase this (he must be empty) and create a new file called Skins. Copy the picture called 3 coloursd_land_germany in page 12 (in different skins forum) and past in the folder called Skin.Do not rename the picture. In the game, i = change the skin of the selectionned unit. You must find the new skin.

Hello, I'm clearly a complete imbecile, as I've trawled through this entire thread and I can't see a download link for these excellent camo options.

- Is it possible to add it (a link or links) into the first post (so we can lays get the latest version?

Is it possible to add a new thread category like in the scenarios and campaigns threads called player created graphics or some such?

You can download it directly from the post itself. Just right-click and choose "save as..."

Yeah, the image of the skin is the skin itself and all that's needed for it to work.

The progress on skins is terrific especially using adherbals simple procedure. Is it possible to get an overview now on what works and what does not work. eg Why do some skins work in the scenario but not in the editor. Where do the general_n skins fit in? What are the correct settings for the skins trigger? What are the rules for skin icon designation ( season_land_nation ). There are countless skins for the Germans but what about the Russians? Any progress there? What is quite amusing is the prefence for very colourful skins which stand out. The exact opposite objective for camoflage! Many thanks to all the pioneers on skin development.
