    I decided to revisit the French Tech Tree to see if I could apply a standard color scheme to the French ships, similar to the way I handled the UK ships; however, the way French ships were painted at the turn of the century, versus the color schemes used just prior to WWII, during the war, and in the post-war era makes that impossible. There are also big problems with shared main and secondary gun files. So I decided to see if I could at least attempt to create a set of French peripheral files that have been deconflicted and standardize things to the max extent possible, at least for the ships in my collection. I'll release them as soon as possible. Here are screenshots of the latest version of the Henri IV and the reworked Charles Martel and St. Louis: She shares a lot of files with the Charles Martel and the St. Louis, so I had to repaint those two ships in order to deconflict shared files. The Henri IV is a nearly finished WIP, for those who want it; I'll try to get the T8 and 9 ships uploaded by tomorrow.

    Hola, sports fans! Updated Henri IV 1957 - Fictional scheme consistent with historical camouflage schemes from WWII is now available now on Pg. 1. Let me know if there are any issues. I'll also post a no camo scheme tomorrow.
  4. I must admit, the MM is soo bad at tiers 8-10 that at least half of the games are total XP mismatch blowouts. 4 CV matches are common and it’s seriously ruining the game. If it isn’t fixed pretty quick it’s going to go badly.

    Question about USS Georgia

    Yes, I totally agree that she seems well suited to that tier.

    Question about USS Georgia

    Hi there! I have been Super-testing this ship and I want to stress that she is a WIP, but I’m really not seeing that. As a matter of fact her guns seem pretty anemic. I’ve had a heck of a time hitting with her and because of the fewer number of guns my damage is definitely below average, when compared to similar ships at her tier. She also takes citadel hits pretty frequently. Anyone else have any input in this regard.

    Tanz, if you have the time and the inclination would you please do the Yukikaze test ship? Love your work and she looks naked without it =)

    OK, I removed the blue area on the bow.

    Glad you like it bro’. I too missed it during the holidays and wanted it for historical purposes, as well. I like the 507b scheme, too, but the 507c scheme is very attractive and she was photographed in it quite frequently. I haven’t found a dazzle scheme for her in the IWM galleries, but if anyone had it just let me know and I would be glad to do that one too. The default in-game camo just doesn’t look right, based on schemes I have researched and created from original drawings. The ones I posted for Dublin and Caledon are what I would expect. I also love the more accurate small craft. They look infinitely better than the stock colors.
  11. Great work on dreadnought as always! Also I have been getting great use out of your Exeter skin after I got it last week. Thanks.

    Just noticed that your bitz may not include your new dark searchlight change you mentioned.  Not sure but after I installed I am still getting white searchlights on dreadnought.

    HMS Dreadnought (T3 Premium) 1914 and 1916 is ready for download on Pg.1 - this download includes two optional paint schemes, a WWI 507b dark gray and the postwar 507c Mediterranean Light Gray adopted for overseas stations. The dark gray scheme does not appear to conflict with any other ships due to shared files. I updated the UK_bits to standardize the color of all searchlights and signal lamps (black). Thanks to mrblueskye for this suggestion. As always, please let me know if there are any issues or suggestions for improvement.

    Thanks Albrecht, I'll take a look. Cheers comrade!

    I made quite a few quality control improvements to HMS Implacable's disruptive scheme, and they are now available on Pg. 1.

    I updated the UK_bits download to add file BM423_15in42MK2_insignia_alpha_a.dds. If you use my Mediterranean Squadron you will want to use the one included with that download, instead.
