I'm playing US Pacific campaign now and noticed that there are too little skins for US factions, so I've made 3 new Pacific camos :)

FIRST: Salomon Islands campaign camo
MY RECOMMENDATION: Guadalcanal, New Georgia (US Pacific), Tulagi, Guadalcanal # 2, Munda, Choiseul, Bougainville (Marine Corps)

Why is the Jeep Willys so dark ? :shock:

Perhaps I'll make 1 extra skin especially for Op.Downfall later (US landing in Japan)

Pretty cool. Love the "weathered" look, esp. the Tarawa one :)

Thanks a lot :)

Marines camo is pretty cool, indeed
I think the final skin (philippines) will look great in contrast to the "moon" terrain of Okinawa and Iwojima :D

I noticed that twice in your topic you write Iwo Jima in one word -> typo ?

Yes, indeed
Shoud be Iwo-jima (precisely Iō-jima :wink:) or Iwo Jima

Late Pacific camo for Stuart's family vehicles

I've noticed that Stuart models need the last skin reworked
MY RECOMMENDATION: M2 Light Tank, M3, M3 Satan, M3A1, M5 (vehicle model needs to be fixed :wink: ), M5A1 and M8 75mm HMC

I think this additional skin only for Stuarts is very important in US Pacific or Marine Corps DLCs for historical playthrough, Stuarts ruled in PTO :!: :wink:

Good stuff, could've used it a few weeks back while playing the MarineCorpsDLC... :wink:

What about including some (or many) of those in the "Community Crate"? Would you guys be okay with that?

There was no offer from the Community... :lol:

TBH I don't know, I think people will somehow get to our thread. I know there are some links to 'Different skins' on the OoB Steam forum
If you want, I can pick some of the best camouflages. No problem

EDIT. Overall, I'm a member of this community, so I'd be delighted to throw some packs into the crate :lol:

I suggested a while back that quality skins should be available for download in the Crate. Still think this is a good idea.

It seems that you have changed the maximum (or minimum) zoom values, what are these values?

OK, I just didn't want to suggest something that you guys do not want.
I guess if Slitherine/Shards is okay with that, he'll drop you a line himself about the correct "procedure" with the CommunityCrate.

Mr.T, you're okay with that, too?

Thank you very much to you and Erik for paying attention to my "work". Your suggestion Gabe was very kind.

I think there must be some 'quality controller' for Community Crate so if he calls me back and says "Listen man, your skins are great, we'd like to have them here" that's ok, I'll immediately put together some skin packs for the most important factions in game (even create some new ones, exclusively :wink: ) and submit it for publication in the game.

But one thing is for sure, I won't be asking for it.

Yes, I changed to max zoom, made print-screen and cut it in Paint (Win10) so that it was less than 1 Mg but the quality was maintained.
I'm not able to give you values, next time I will write it down and put here.
I would post screenshots showing the camouflages in the game (medium-minimum zoom) but they have terribly large size if you want to keep the original quality.
Maybe Slitherine increases my attachment limit to 3 Mb :wink: 8)

EDIT. Sorry Mr.T :) I misunderstood you, I didn't change the "factory" zoom settings in the game.
I just max zoomed in with the mouse wheel and made a print-screen

You're welcome. I think that "skinning" became a very nice, and important, feature of the game. Lately, I began to use skins more and more as more and more units began to support them. :)
And I like the "colored" camos much more than just some stripes or dots or such... This thread has a nice variety and I appreciate any new addition to it. 8)
