Flak:

Maybe you want to "standarize" the basic ISU chassis, here is the basic icon I was working at... It incorporates elements from the vanilla game icon, the McGuba versions, and from internet images... This chassis would be useful for the following versions:

- ISU-122
- ISU-122S (it had a newer 122 mm long gun with muzzle brake)
- ISU-152
- ISU-152-2 (longer 152 mm gun)

Here are the basic icons, and some extras would be added: green aux fuel tanks, the red flag, stowed logs to help the vehicle cross difficcult terrain... May be you want to use parts of them...

Also, thanks for sharing all your latest work!! :-)

Fantastic design Guille, much better than the game includes. My vote to you.

PS: Are you missing the ATY version with the short barrel?.

Thanks
Akkula.

Hola Paisano! :-)

I am glad you like this icon... I made also the Aty version of the ISU-152... it is just that I can only upload three files per posting (and I did not want to make a separate posting). Did you see the ISU-152 m1945? It is a unit I enjoyed very much in the liking, and I think it looks right, besides, I made some additional templated to customize the icon... :-)
Thanks for you kind words! Keep up the great modding work!

Resumiendo: el ISU-152/1945 (junto con una variante con bandera) ya es parte de mi equipment.dat :). UNA BELLEZA

Guille some posts ago you uploaded an improved IS-2, could you upload the mask also?. I would love to use it in the mod.

Thanks in advance.
Akkula.

Great units Guille, I am very glad to get them. I wish I had known you were working on these ISU units before I made so many different versions :o I am attempting to make variations for players to be able to identify certain units with the same armor.

Anyway, mine are done and if somebody wants them, they are surely made for enjoyment of the game.

I have always admired the ISU series in particular and the game did not have an ISU 152 that I could find. Maybe I am just having a brain fart. But in any case, thanks for these units. They really look beautiful. :)

Flak: No problem... I wish I have known about your plans earlier and I would have given my base icons on time... Anyway, I am sure you units will be "Guille-Compilant" :-) ...That is with good detailing but with enough of the "vanilla look" to blend with the already existing units in the game. And, with your permission, I will "borrow" some details/ideas from your work to improve mine...

Akkula: I was sure I had uploaded the IS-2 complete unit pack, but I can be mistaken... Here are the base icon and mask... Tell me if you want the "painted" vehicles also!
By the way, thanks for the incorporation of the ISU-152 m1945 to your mod! That makes me proud!

Thanks a lot Guille. Yeah, you uploaded a pack but in the last pages you posted an even more improved IS-2 icons, the ones belonging to this mask.
Or maybe I missed the pack... anyway thanks a million.

PS: Not only the ISU-152/1945, also the SU-76M an half of your HUGE pack are part of the Soviet Storm!. You are a genius.

Thanks man! I am very glad you like my work... I enjoy making those icons, and also enjoy when they help other modders in their work. As long as my free time allows myself, you will be seeing a lot more of stuff useful for your work in this old, trusty thread... :-)

Keep up the good work!!
By the way: Great work with the B.I. rocket interceptor!

Thanks Guille. I think the BI-1 can be enhanced, I suck at unit creation and even worst with air units.
Feel free to put your hands on it to improve it my friend :)

Ok, will do my best... It is a very interesting unit... But it is a very good icon.

Thanks for the compliment my friend.
Following my trend to improve my units: now I completely reworked the Yermolayev Yer-2

Before:

Now:

Once again, working on air units its a nightmare for me, I wish I had the Bebros ability in these cases. But honestly, I think the Yer-2 is much more better than before (at least more PzC "style").

Hi guille,

Are yu able to make a K-Wagen for WWI v3.2? I think it is the only tank I'm still missing, and my attempt to convert a 3d model ended up a messy blob!

Hi, very nice and finished basic unit icons for these, and also for the IS-2! But which skin can I use for these to get the PzC vanilla style looking Soviet green paint? (Or maybe I just missed a point? :roll: )

I think Guille will release the pack later. But will I do is to create a mask for those, then just using GIMP (or similar) pick the overall color and apply it with DCS by selecting "use color instead skin".

Hello BNC!

Thanks for the update on your WWI mod! As per your request, here you have a K-Wagen (Base Icon, Mask, two ready-to-play units). I hope you find it useful... 8)

I have a pack of modified Soviet skins and thumbnails. I reworked the DCS soviet file a bit and organized it. Removed the darker colors. Then I lightened some of the other skins and thumbs. I think there are 35 variations in it and some of them are very close to the vanilla color scheme. I have just not been able to match it exactly. I will post a zip file link with Mediafire on the DCS thread for this pack of skins and thumbs.

McGuba: I use "Soviet Green" mask to skin Soviet units using the DCS... There are five of them, each a little darker than the other... When I skin one Soviet icon I try some of them and select the one it looks better on the specific icon.

Thank you for these camo skins and thumbs Guille. I found that my Soviet Army no 2 is a very close match.

I will find a lot of use for it! :D (Something needs to be able to take on an A11V, and better that it be an ally!)
