Hello all :D
I've decided to make some rust free skins based off of the ones Tanz has made. So far I only have IJN ships but will continue to other nations once I have the entirety of the IJN tree rust free. Now these skins aren't perfect, but I will continue to fix and update them to get them as close to perfect as I can. Anyways here are the skins:
 

UPDATE 8/24/16: Added cleaned version of Tanz's skin for Gneisenau

 

Myogi:
This one is based off of the colours that Tanz and AdellaYukikaze use for their IJN BB's. I have updated her textures to remove the last bit of rust on her hull and fixed her secondaries.
Spoiler

 

Furutaka and Kako (C Hull Only)

Furutaka has her 1942 appearance with three white stripes on the forward funnel. I wasn't able to find out how many stripes Kako had or if she had any at all so I went her 1930 configuration where she had 2 stripes on her aft funnel. If this is incorrect, please let me know and I will fix it as soon as I can.

Spoiler

 

Hashidate:
Thought I'd give the little tier 1 gunboat a new coat of paint since there were no rust free skins that matched the ones that I use :)

Spoiler

 

Kawachi:
I updated her to fix a couple issues with the original skin. She was missing a row of portholes on her aft port side and her rudder was the same colour as the hull. These issues have been corrected in the new version.

Spoiler

 

Shimakaze:

This one is based off of the weathered texture Tanz made for her. I removed all the rust and made her look brand new. Texture file also includes Tanz's projectile file to change the torpedo texture to the correct colours.

So Slow! :hiding:

Spoiler

 

Izumo:

Say what you want about this ship's performance, but she looks great now that shes got a new coat of paint.

Spoiler

 

USS Block Island CVE-21 (USS Bogue Skin)
This skin is based off of the Bogue class escort carrier USS Block Island as she was in 1943 painted in MS 22 camouflage. 

Spoiler

 

Kagerou: Harekaze from Haifuri

This one isn't a historical skin but its a design that I liked from Kagerou. The texture doesn't apply to the second turret otherwise it would apply to all of the turrets.

Spoiler

 

Gneisenau:

This skin is based off of the 1944 appearance Tanz created for the ship. (Check out his skin here!) I simply removed the slight weathering effects from her hull and cleaned up her keel. Pictures taken by Gnevny.

Installation Guide:

First open your World of Warships directory and go to the res_mods folder. Go to the current version of the game (0.5.9.1 at the time of writing this) and create a "content" folder, a "gameplay" folder, and a "japan" folder (Don't put quotes in the folder names). Put the "japan" folder inside the "gameplay" folder and that folder inside "content". Next, download the .zip files (This will require something to open zip files like 7zip, winrar, etc.) and simply extract the contents into the "japan" folder you made earlier. Some skins have files inside the .zip such as the Furutaka skin which has both a "Furutaka" and "Kako" folder. In this case, open the .zip file and choose which variant you would like, then extract those files into "japan". The same process works with ship skins of other nations. Simply create the appropriate titled file (usa, russia, germany, etc.) and extract the skins into the correct nation file.


TL;DR: Create files so that your file directory looks like this:   and extract the .zip files into the correct nations.

The colours used in these skins are the same that AdellaYukikaze and Tanz use on their skins for IJN ships. Please check out their awesome skins here:

Ooh~! Very nice work Yamato, I always felt the Ingame skins were far too rusty for my tastes, I always like the look of ships when they are newly constructed, with fairly minimal wear, and tear, good job~!.

Hey OP, I recall seeing you in a match yesterday.

 

Nice looking stuff so far.  Nice, clean, subdued.  Izumo is good, in particular it will fill an important gap because she's rarely covered by mods when it comes to IJN BB.  Myogi looks fabulous.

Sorry for the long break, I ended up starting a bunch of projects in real life but I have more free time now so I can resume work on these skins. I should be able to finish the Kako skin either by tonight or tomorrow night. Last IJN ship after that will be Houshou and once I finish her, I can begin work on some US or German ships when they come out.

8/4/2016: Kawachi skin update: Fixed missing set of windows and issue with the rudder being the wrong colour

                Myogi skin update: Removed small amount of rust near the bow. Removed rust from the 120mm secondaries.

                Kako skin added: I'm not quite sure if she had stripes on her funnel in her final configuration but I thought she would look lacking without them so I added stripes as they were on her 1930 configuration.

 

To do: Isokaze Skin, Houshou skin, USN BBs

Thanks :D. Hoping to get the skin done today but the weird curved textures on the AA tubs is a little annoying XD. Im almost done with that side though and from there I can just mirror it onto the other side.
