Coming Soon: Customisable Skins

Post by adherbal » Thu May 28, 2015 2:21 pm

We'll be adding the option to customise unit skins in a future patch. You'll be able to to choose from a range of built-in skins as well as add your own custom ones.

Some quick test examples below:

I'm going to have to sue you for infringing upon Dwight's Camo Sprayshop copyrights! :twisted:

Seriously, great little touch you guys are adding this into the game. I think it will be a very nice thing to have for many camo-enthusiasts in the game and it's hopefully incoming expansions. 8)

Would you be able to use cameo on individual units within a unit type?

We're starting with ground units only at the moment, but there is no technical reason why it wouldn't work for aircraft and ships.

Looks great! Should be a nice way of distinguishing my elite units.

Skin selection UI (more or less) completed. The feature should be available in the next patch, if only for a limited amount of units (because it takes a bit of extra work to make the system work for each unit type).

Thanks Adherbal. One thing I had in mind was the dazzle pattern used sometimes on ships.

I hope there will be an option to leave the stuff with its current look, because I like the desert-sand colour of Jap tanks!

Hi everyone!

I just bought Order Of War Pacific and love it! I noticed on the boards here a few people are looking
for 3D artists! :-D I am a 3d surface/object modeler. If anyone needs 3D stuff for modding this awesome
game, let me know!

I have added some pictures of some of my high res renders as reference to my capabilities. :D
