    Not really...just having a hard time figuring out what kind of pattern to put on her...any ideas?

    I am doing skins for the T6-T10 Japanese DDs. I really like them to look like they came from the same Destroyer Division. These skins will be fictitious but realistic in appearance, per attached screenshot. They will all be based on Mebius' Harekaze / Kagero look, as his skin for the Kagero is one of my absolute favorites. Would any of you like to have these, too? If so I will post them for download as I create them. I have asked Tanz for permission to use the lettering from his line of Japanese DDs so that we can have some standardization / commonality.

    No worries my friend; thanks for trying. It's just one of those things we will have to live with.

    OK, I have n0 idea if I have this right, I will let you be the judge, but here are the references I used: My primary source was a black-and-white period photo. The ships name is clearly visible on the starboard quarter: The following artist conception seemed to match and was very helpful in laying out the patterns; however I went with a color more blue that purple for the stripes:

    Awesome! The reference I used for the 1942 d'Aosta and the Raimondo MonteCuccioli came from period photos, artist conceptions and photos of ship models, I found online. I will send you the links. I don't mind using artist conceptions and model photos as long as they match actual period photographs. Which links would you like d,Acosta or Raimondo, or both? By the way, I have every skin you ever created and consider them to be the pinnacle of this type or artistic work.
  9. Yeah I'm always amazed at how little some people know about how to play a light cruiser. When you are driving an Atlanta you have to "kite" a lot and avoid being sighted until the time and location are right. That has gotten me similar comments from the "tactical geniuses".
  10. Bretagne short and stocky

    I agree she looks quite odd. The Normandie looks even odder.

    RF Bretagne and Normandie are ready for download on pg. 1 - These skins are based on what they would have looked like late in the 1st decade / early 2nd decade of the 20th Century. I'm offering them as a pair because they would have been contemporaries and they share secondary armament textures. These "historically correct" textures are based on an actual photo of the FR Bretagne at anchor in Toulon Harbor and a "what if" photoshop rendering of the RF Normandie, created by alt_naval as if had she actually been built.
  12. Who is still playing Atlanta?

    I play it everyday. I have played over 4,500 games and have almost 800 in USS Atlanta. I just love ❤️ this ship and my win rate in it is 56.44 %. I normally play in a division with a buddy driving a USS Sims and we work as a team. We stay together and he smokes and spots and I use his smoke for concealment and radar as soon as opposing DD / Commonwealth CA try to escape in their own smoke. Man that is a hell of a formula for success and that teamwork is soooo much fun when it works out right. He and I held an entire flank against 5 BBs / CAs and turned them away with heavy loss. We also successfully Cap using that tactic and have wrecked more than our share of opposing DDs. Add to that its credit earnings and ability to train COs and it's pure magic.

    Next one in the hopper...historical skin for RF Bretagne, as she appeared at anchor in Toulon in 1919. I would have taken the screen shot in the Marseille port; however, the lighting was just too low for decent contrast.
