    [ALL] Slayer's Skins 2.0 (Mostly Historical)

    Enjoy your break. I really appreciated it when you gave us the Kutusov skin than goes so well with Tanz's Russian cruisers. I still follow Tanz's work but since I don't do Facebook I can't comment or ask questions so I'm hoping you may be able to plug a couple of gaps that have been bugging me for a while. Ashitaka in the classic IJN Grey. Kronstadt, possibly using Tanz's Moskva as a starting point. Salem, to match with DM and the other US heavies. I haven't seen any skins for Flint or Black but either but since I don't have either and there are so few in game they don't bug me as much.

    I stopped using Aslain's camouflage remover and found this one on Tanz's Facebook site . camouflages.xml USS Arizona in Marseilles port. Not really a fan of the all-blue look as you can see from this custom skin.

    I'd be interested in these if the colouring doesn't conflict with USNA76's excellent Gallant skin. I think Acasta, Gallant and Icarus use the same main gun file and may have others in common.

    I'll chip in here if that's OK. I've run my whole skin mod folder through XnView (once I understood the instructions) and it's a Heinz 57 of Tanz, Slayer, Wyvern, USNA76 and others, more than 10 GB total. I have to report that although I have no idea why it works, it just does. However, if all this is too daunting and you can't wait to hide WG's awful camouflage I have a stop-gap solution. I modified the camouflages.xml file; it's not quite fifty shades of grey but each nation has it's own shade (the US and IJN two, if you have the ability unlocked), the event and special camos have been altered and a few premium camos have had colours changed. The end result means no in-your-face camouflage provided you have all the additional content filters in port set to off and the added advantage that it affects every ship in the game. Just drop in your res_mods folder and delete from there if you don't like it. camouflages.xml

    Sorry to say that the problem seems to run deeper than any of us suspects. I have been using the new camouflages.xml file included in Aslains and the game runs fine, using that file with no skins installed. I have been trying to rebuild my Custom Skins folder from scratch to try and identify the problem; no mean feat when you're talking 10GB plus of files. What I've found so far is a mixture of good and bad news. I've tried to take USN76's skins as the base and build from there. The good news is that the vast majority of what USN has given us works fine. In fact, the only confirmed problem is with the Gallant torpedo tube file as this causes a crash every time I use it. Skins by Wyvern that I've tried so far seem to be OK as well. The real source of dismay for me is that nothing and I mean nothing that I have tried by Tanz or Slayer seems to work, even though filenames are right they cause a crash every time. I'm wondering if they're using a different method of creating the skins and that is causing something. I'm going to have a look at file properties to see if windows permissions is causing something. Grasping at straws, really. This is the most broken I've ever seen the modding side of things.

    Just a heads-up that 0.7.9.0 has broken something about the British and Commonwealth ships and the game will crash if you try to load the game with skins installed. Removing the UK/CW skins allows the game to run and I haven't found any problems with USN76's skins for the other nations. I think the problem may be with the DDs in particular so I'm going to try to introduce the skins gradually to see if I can pinpoint where the problem is. Edit: Problem is with the DDs. BB and cruiser skins don't cause the crash.

    This is one for the future as I know you're getting ready to visit the Land of the Mountain and the Flood. Having now seen the initial CV rework video, I wondered if the new (much bigger) plane models will be able to be modded and if so that might be something you'd be interested in doing.

    Perhaps my eyes are playing tricks. The T61 turret tops look yellow in your screenshot. However, the zip file contains only the ship folder, no guns or any accessories.

    Put another way, we miss you. You've been spoiling us with a steady conveyor belt of quality releases and the extended (by your own standards) hiatus has us spooked (maybe).

    Any plans to tackle the Salem or Kronstadt?

    Fine now. Thanks.

    The downloads for An Yang and Yuen Yang point to the Hsienyang zip file.

    My jaw is literally scraping the floor here. If you're happy with them, you've just got to release these... Makes me wonder what you have in store for the lower tiers; the South Carolina is still a guilty pleasure of mine.

    Aye, aye and thrice, aye sir! Not to dampen the enthusiasm, but Iowa and Missouri also share some files with these, but I'm sure you've thought of that.
