    Hi, I actually run Tanz's IJN cruiser skins. He has pretty much the whole lineup: His IJN offerings are pretty comprehensive, most of the content I have created for Japan is to supplement any missing entries in his trees. Cheers, -JB

    I don't suppose you ran into the 4014 & 844 on your travels?

    What is the concept "tanking" in battleships?

    It a great skill to cultivate, in my experience playing battlewagons it's always better to be at the end of the match with a quarter of your HP and still have your Tin Cans and Cruisers alive than to have most of your HP left and no little friends. Note this demands a good grasp of angling and situational awareness. The importance of angling is pretty straightforward because you need to bounce big AP hits, which can't be as easily healed like HE and DoT. Situational Awareness is needed to tank effectively over the course of the match. At the beginning you need to read the map and your team's deployment so you position yourself where your tanking damage directly benefits your little friends and not just overextending and getting melted down for nothing. Over the course of the match you need to keep reading that minimap and adjust your tactics based on the overall condition of the match. Can I keep pushing or do I need to start kiting? Can I drop of detection if its getting too hot? Is the team doing well enough that I can keep trading or are we getting rolled on the other flank and I need to husband my HP for a potential carry? Even without a Skipper and modules specifically geared to tank, a battleship who is reading the map and usefully trading its HP over the course of the match can effectively tank for your team. Cheers, -JB

    I would advocate you start with a clean patch folder and only do a single ship's files to trial the procedure. You want to remove as many variables from the equation as possible your first time through. Make sure you set the batch process to replace the existing files and opt for clean metadata as the procedure. Typically you can tell if its working because Windows Explorer will be able to show the preview of the texture files if they updated correctly. Once you get comfortable with the process on a single ship at a time then consider doing a faction's worth of skins and so on. XnView isn't bulletproof, some files may be corrupted so just running it against your whole res mods folder probably won't hunt. Cheers, -JB

    Back in September WG pushed a patch that changed the acceptable texture formats for skins, this caused all the skins before that time to break. You can run a batch update process using XnView to reformat the old files (do a search in the mods its been explained many times), else you will need to pull down the latest skin packages from after that patch.

    When might the Beer Can Roma comeback on Sale?

    If you have a Roma, you can buy it in the Exterior>Camo section for 7000 dubs. Just make sure you have Kobe skins enabled in the Port options.
