The camouflage is given at a stage in the game: a properly deployed smoke screen, for smaller ship's is effective when in close quarter engagement.

Wawan25 got his american account blocked, so I bring you the new. Don't ask me why, I don't know.

 

But, his mod works again, thanks to Izolyn. He thanks you a lot, GIANT THANKS he said. He could never have updated without your help.

 

So, the mod is once again available on Wawan website, here:

Good days fellow captains, and enjoy those good old camouflages!

Good to hear! Hopefully 0.5.7 won't cause problems again, since that's coming soon.

 

Incidentally, the best guess I have for why the old version of the mod didn't work is that the 0.5.6 update involved new ships (Indianapolis) as well as new premium camouflages (Yorck, Myoukou, etc.), which the old version didn't account for, and upon finding nothing for Indianapolis or the new premium camouflages the game switched back to the default rather than glitch out because it couldn't find the necessary files. It wasn't anything intentional on WG's part, just an unfortunate side effect of having new ships/camouflages to deal with. Thus, the fix was to add in the information for Wawan's camouflages into the new camouflages.xml from 0.5.6, which had the new camouflage information. Given that 0.5.7 will add the Arizona and Ashigara in for testing, it's something to keep in mind.

 

Something I'll need to try if 0.5.7 breaks things again is taking the Arizona and Ashigara information from the 0.5.7 camouflages.xml and adding it to the working 0.5.6 Unique Camouflage version, to test that guess. Or, now that I think of it, just poke at the current version some before it gets updated and see what happens if I remove the information for the premium camos, one of the ships, or both.

 

Edit: Poking around complete, and neither removing the information in the camouflages.xml for Myoukou's premium camouflage nor removing everything about Indianapolis seems to break the mod (but it does mean that Myoukou's premium camouflage appears as no camouflage at all, which is amusing). So that guess is out. I'll still try poking at things if the mod breaks with 0.5.7, though.

If you happen to catch me online, feel free to hit me up for a division. Currently, I have at least one ship of every tier except 9.

I was curious to see how your camo tiles are laid out, but using Firefox & being signed into Google when I go to (telechargement) the downloads just open a new blank page no matter what permissions or cookies I allow.

Trying your site in Internet Explorer prompts only questions about needing to update my browser......

 

I would guess the mega.nz storage site isn't blocked by some countries, but I'm at a loss now about what to try next.

It's very strange. Sorry for that. The other players don't have any problem to download my mod from MEGA.

Perhaps, someone can help Billy_Burns_91 ? Do you know why he can't access MEGA to download my mod ?

 

If not, give me your mail by MP. I will send you my mod.

how hard would it be for you to make this mod a skin mod, instead of the camo mod? for i would like this on all the ships i have, unless they are the ships i like with anime skins, but, if it's too hard for you to make that, thats okay, but nice work my friend.

Sorry, it is not a question of time but It is impossible to make my mod a SKIN mod.

You can use my mod AND skins. But you mustn't buy camouflage on skinned ships.

Pretty nice tiles overall.

 

Would it be possible to get a quick step-by-step overview of how you make a tile?

I've done some similar generic or seamless designs, but a few keep ending up with small areas of ''bad'' pixels when I complete an image then export to the .dds format & generate mip-maps.

 

Not every tile has had this problem, so I suspect it might be related to selecting using the magic wand tool in either photoshop or gimp.

I am working on Photoshop. I create the pattern and save it as an .psd.

I don't use Photoshop to convert this .psd into a dds file because I have bugs and pixel problems.

 

So I use a tool to convert photoshop file into dds file. And I have no problem.

This tool is DD Converter 2.1. It's an old program but it's very useful for me !!!

 

I hope you understand what I wrote because my english is not very good !!!!!

I'm pretty sure it doesn't conflict with other mods, unless that mod is a camo one. All the files in Wawan's mod are camo related.

No, no conflict except with camo and skins mods of course ...

 

I have worked hard for three days. And I create all Japanese and American Aircraft-Carriers (camo type 1 and type 5).

I have redone all Japanese Cruisers and Battleships (camo type 1,2 and 5). And I have redone all American Battleships (camo type 1,2 and 5).

Now, colors and patterns are more historical. So, I have created 91 new camouflages for the last three days !!!

 

All these camouflages will be available in the next version of the patch (0.5.8.0).

 

I can't show you all, but here are some ones :

Hi American community.
 
I have just been banned from the French Forum because I showed a Rising Sun flag (61x41 pixels) to identify my japanese camouflages.
It's like that in France. If you create something useful, we prefer to give you a kick in the teeth instead of coming to bring you some help. It's a fantastic country !!!!
 
I am sure that American community is less silly and will accept I continue to present my work without worries.

Hi all !!

 

New 0.5.8.0 Version available !!!

It's a giant update because I have redone ALL US Navy Ships and nearly ALL Japanses Ships (over 100 new camouflages).

Now, there are more realistic.

Some US cruisers examples :

Hey Wawan,

 

Would it be possible for you to give side-by-side pictures of the old vs new camouflages? Or, for that matter, just an image album with all of the camouflages which tells us which ship, camouflage, and new/old version?

 

I have no doubt that at least some people might prefer some of the old camouflages, so it would be nice to have a quick method of comparison to decide which ones to keep, and presumably you already have images for them from the albums on your website.

 

As far as comments on the new versions go, did you base some of the new IJN camos off of the Myoukou's premium camouflage? The Myoukou itself definitely has the same color scheme.

 

Side note - if you are one of the hypothetical people who want to keep an old version of a given camouflage, but you aren't sure how, I can try making a basic tutorial. Pretty much just find the appropriate information in the camouflage.xml, substitute the corresponding information from an old version of the camouflage.xml, and if necessary change the tile pattern.

 

Edit - preliminary change log (new camouflages + some changes to the ones I have and can look at) because I have too much time on my hands

New Camouflages

US Destroyers

  • Clemson now has Type 1 and Type 5 camouflage
  • Nicholas now has Type 1 and Type 5 camouflage
  • Farragut now has Type 1 and Type 5 camouflage

  • No new camouflages

 

US Battleships

  • New York now has Type 1 and Type 5 camouflage, in addition to existing Type 2 camouflage
  • New Mexico now has Type 1 and Type 5 camouflage, in addition to existing Type 2 camouflage

 

US Carriers

  • Bogue now has Type 1 and Type 5 camouflage
  • Independence now has Type 1 and Type 5 camouflage
  • Ranger now has Type 1 and Type 5 camouflage
  • Lexington now has Type 1 and Type 5 camouflage
  • Essex now has Type 1 and Type 5 camouflage
  • Midway now has Type 1 and Type 5 camouflage

 

JP Destroyers

  • Mutsuki now has Type 1 and Type 5 camouflage

 

JP Cruisers

  • Kuma now has Type 1, Type 2, and Type 5 camouflage
  • Furutaka now has Type 1 and Type 5 camouflage, in addition to existing Type 2 camouflage

  • Zuihou now has Type 1 and Type 5 camouflage
  • Ryuujou now has Type 1 and Type 5 camouflage
  • Hiryuu now has Type 1 and Type 5 camouflage
  • Shoukaku now has Type 1 and Type 5 camouflage
  • Taihou now has Type 1 and Type 5 camouflage
  • Hakuryuu now has Type 1 and Type 5 camouflage

 

RU Destroyers

  • Izyaslav now has Type 1 and Type 5 camouflage
  • Gnevny now has Type 5 camouflage, in addition to existing Type 1 camouflage
  • Ognevoi now has Type 5 camouflage, in addition to existing Type 1 camouflage

 

RU Cruisers

  • Budyonny now has Type 1, Type 2, and Type 5 camouflage

 

DE Cruisers

  • Karlsruhe now has Type 1, Type 2, and Type 5 camouflage
  • Konigsberg now has Type 1 and Type 5 camouflage, in addition to existing Type 2 camouflage
  • Nurnberg now has Type 1 and Type 2 camouflage, in addition to existing Type 2 camouflage

 

Changed Camouflages

(Currently only have Furutaka, Aoba, Myoukou, and Fusou, so I can only speak for changes to those. Also have Kuma and Svietlana, but Kuma had no old camouflage and I don't think Svietlana's changed at all.)

Furutaka: Significant change to Type 2 camouflage.

Aoba: Dark green and light green have been swapped; now has a lighter gray hull

Spoiler

Myoukou: Significant changes to Type 1, Type 2, and Type 5 camouflage, including changing the color to that of Myoukou's premium camouflage

Fusou: Minor color tweaks.

Just DL'd your camo mod for 0.5.8.

 

I've been using your camo mods for a long time now.  I usually don't use mods, but I make an exception for your work (and Adiya's flag mod).  They're brilliant!

 

You should be proud of your work.  :great:

 

 

P.S. - Congrats to France in the Euro Cup.  Looking for them to beat Portugal!

Having been tinkering around with something similar, but nowhere near as productive, I do have a small color change suggestion for the IJN schemes.

 

This is the ''standard'' mustard yellow-green used in-game; <color>0.263 0.275 0.133 0.000</color> hex #434622 : Very dark desaturated yellow.

I replaced it with this other green which looks pretty decent; <color>0.192 0.263 0.161 0.000</color> hex #314329 : Very dark desaturated green.

.

edit(s); I will try, this LAST time, to fix the image. No clue why it keeps deleting........

No! :izmena:

How ironic, given that Japanese fought the Americans more than French. Please continue to post here.
