  1. "Much Better Than Any Anime Mod Out There, Satisfaction Guaranteed Or Your Internets Back" By WhiskeyWolf WHAT'S THIS MOD ABOUT? Basically, this modification for World of Warships aims to convert as much as possible the UI and text descriptions of the game, in order to make WoWs photorealistic (I've used real photos in high resolution of the WW2 conflict) and historically correct. Without forget to mention the documentary like flavour I've given to the art style of WoWs. FOR WHAT KIND OF PLAYER IS THIS MOD FOR? This mod aims to compel whoever loves the naval history behind World of Warships. Poeple that would love to see realistic pictures of their favorite warships implemented in the game client. People with much knowledge regarding the naval battles exploded inside the atlantic, mediterranean and pacific theatres. "If this was any more realistic you would have Japanese Kamikaze flying out of your monitor." By WhiskeyWolf WHO IS WORKING ON THIS PROJECT? Tsukotaku (Ex. Founder of Team 20.3cm and Rising Sun), one of the very first modders during the Alpha of the game, also known in the global WoWs community for his great Kantai Collection modifications. Examples of his past works: WHO IS ADVISING THIS PROJECT? Chamorro, probably one of the most knowledgeable persons and contributors that Tsukotaku ever met, especially in this community. Wihtout his help and information, this project wouldn't be able to take off. WHAT'S THE STATUS OF THIS MOD? I've covered only 5% of the total GUI and 3% of the text descriptions as per 27/11/17, with much more to come during the following weeks! The results are incredible already: WHERE IS THE DOWNLOAD? Since the mod is in very early stage of delevopement the download is NOT AVAILABLE yet. I need first to rebalance the contrast of certain in-battles elements to make it actually playable by everyone in grayscale tones. Once this is done, I'll submit everything to WG in order to publish a working version with the lastest build of the game. This topic is just a showcase of the work that me and Chamorro are doing, to let know the community that such project is happening. HOW CAN YOU HELP US? Simple! By providing us with feedbacks and comments! What's better than having you, the users (The final target of this mod), express your thoughts about this "Photorealistic WW2 Total UI Conversion"? "MAN UP!" By WhiskeyWolf
  2. [] US Blast Bag Mod

    This is possibly the smallest detail in the game yet it has always annoyed me. The color of blast bags or "bloomers" on guns on ships of the US Navy. Blast bags, for anyone who doesn't know, are the little pieces of fabric, usually rubber or canvas, fixed around where the gun meets the turret, they keep dirt and water out of the turret. The color of the US bags has always sorta annoyed me. Some aren't dark enough or even the wrong color completely, and yes I am aware of how picky this sounds. I wanted to try my hand at modding as I have never even come close to creating my own so this is an experiment. I'm even inexperienced in photo editing all together so this is just an experiment. I have created this mod that changes and darkens the color of blast bags of most US ships including carriers, battleships, destroyers, and cruisers. It was mostly for myself as a test of my very limited skill but I'll put it here if anyone else wants to use it. The ships it changes are as follows: North Carolina, Alabama, and Massachusetts, Iowa, Missouri, and Montana. Cleveland, New Orleans, Baltimore, Des Moines, Salem Benson, Sims, Lo Yang, Fletcher, Black, Kidd, Gearing. Any destroyer using the 5 inch 38 caliber mounts pretty much. This includes some the high tier Pan-Asian destroyers like Hsien Yang, Chung Mu, and Yue Yang. Since it changes the texture of the 5 inch secondary dual purpose mounts as well, this applies to most US ships mentioned above as well as any carrier using the 5 inch dual purpose mounts, this also includes Atlanta. Installation is the usual. Unzip the mod and drop the "content" folder right into the current version res_mods folder. Like I said this is my first mod and just an experiment so I apologize if this post is clumsy and/or hard to understand. Give me your criticisms and questions please. http://www.mediafire.com/file/n1jc1zt4dmi1ypp/BlastBagsMod.rar Pictures:
  3. I made some small fixes for the campaign reward camo for the Bismarck in order to make her more historical. Just the intact one, not the zombie. This mod will affect only the reward camo and nothing else. This skin should represent Bismarck during her final moments: Changes: lighter overall shade grey overpaint in place of swastikas (iron crosses) corrected paint job on main turrets visible remnants of baltic stripes dark grey paint for main and secondary gun barrels added mysterious smudge[1] darker paint of bow and stern removed shape of the false bow wave adjusted Reference images: 1 2 3 4 Download link: https://ulozto.net/!X6PKLjLMRdRd/huntforbismarck-skinfixc-rar Installation: unrar put "content" folder in "res_mod/" in the game directory (C:/Games/World_of_Warships) Note: Because this mod doesnt handle with any xml file, it is compatible with every upcoming update. So the only thing you have to do is to take it from the old folder and place it into the new one. Enjoy!
  4. Nagato lives on!

    Well looks like not all of the ship is gone. Of course it's not her beautiful floating self but, her flag was returned to Japan! https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/news/20171007_14/
  5. Hello, thanks for stopping by. I'll be posting several historical Japanese ship textures in this thread. If you have a request for a specific ship of a class, send me a message or leave a comment below and I'll get to work as soon as I am able to. Note: These textures will not be visible if you have a camouflage mounted. A camouflage remover is recommended to hide the camo's appearance. Yamakaze (Replaces Tier II Destroyer Umikaze) Chikuma (Tier II Cruiser) Katori (Tier III Cruiser) Furutaka (Tier V Cruiser) Hatsuyuki (Replaces Tier VI Destroyer Shinonome) Fubuki (Replaces Tier VI Destroyer Shinonome) Akizuki (Tier VIII Destroyer) Hatsuzuki (Replaces Tier VIII Destroyer Akizuki) Teruzuki (Replaces Tier VIII Destroyer Akizuki) Takao (Replaces Tier VIII Cruiser Atago) More to come soon!

  6. So, I've always preferred the CBT textures for American ships - camouflage Measure 22, aka the blue hull. By 1945, pretty much every ship in the Pacific either wore Measure 22 or Measure 21. In lieu of being able to find any sort of references on what Victories actually wore, I retextured the Red Oak Victory in MS22. Two variations done - one, in the Aqua blue Wargaming used for CBT, and the other in 5-N Navy blue, which is what ships actually used in WWII. Aqua: Preview here. Download here. 5-N Navy: Preview here. Download here. The rest of the Aqua MS-22 textures can be found here. Thanks, Red_Raven_168! Clean textures for many ships, carefully cleaned by DD_381, can be found here, in both aqua and navy blue. Matching textures for the New Mexico, retexturing it to look like the USS Idaho in MS22 Navy Blue, was expertly recreated by Rotten_Scotty. They can be found here.
  7. Dear Wargaming I would like to suggest Nation teamed battles in random battles for historical event anniversaries. For example, during the "Battle of Midway" anniversary, and other historical naval anniversaries, there should be a chance of a random battle where one team consists of ships from only one nation (in this case USA) against ships of another nation (Japan) within same/close-by tiers of ships. This would make for interesting gameplay and we could all learn from the results of the battle and gain insight into historical battles that took place.
  8. so, i've recently completed that hie challenge, i think that the ship is good, it has a decent speed and a wonderful range, but i didn't enjoy playing with a pink battleship, i managed to overwrite the arpeggio voice files with the german voice files because grandfather in the kriegsmarine, now i just need to place the overwrite the arpeggio skin with the original Kongo skin, can you guys tell me how to find the vanilla skins folder or name a mod skin to use in the hiei?
  9. Heyo, since I have recently started to sit down to make small edits to textures, I have now decided to make some complete skins myself. I have very little experience in modding textures, so any advice, criticism, suggestion, etc is always welcome! The skins are mostly rust free, because I'm too noob to make convincing looking weathering effects. Aside from that, they will mostly be designed to be compatible with Tanz' textures. I strongly suggest having a look at Tanz' thread (and the other ones in the spoiler)!

  10. Thank you Wargaming!

    I just wanted to shout out to the Wargaming Developers who work on the ship detailing... Since I only live a few hours drive from the USS North Carolina, and visit a few times a year, it has rapidly become one of my favorite ships in the game. So, I was pretty excited when WG announced the NoCal would be getting a permanent camo.. And sure enough, it's the Measure 32 pattern from 1944 that she wears today! Thank you Wargaming, Thank you. It's the little details in this game that make me happy.. 1944 Present Day (taken in Feb 2016) WOWS in Port
  11. This is something I've been wanting to do for a long time. Ever since I got the permanent camouflages for Hatsuharu, Fubuki, and Mogami, I thought Atago's camo stood out due to its colour scheme. This simple mod just changes Atago's camo to match the same green and white colours as the rest of the Japanese camos. This mod also changes New York's permanent camouflage (The one that can be purchased for 1000 doubloons) into Texas' camouflage and alters Texas' look to have MS 21 camo scheme (The solid dark blue one). I plan on adding more here soon but for now, here are the new camos. Updated for 5.15 Note: This mod affects the camouflages only. The ship textures you use will remain the same and will be visible under the camos. The rust free ship textures used under the camouflage is made by Tanz. Check out his skins here. Download To install, just extract the contents of the .zip file into your res_mods folder.
  12. Detailed blueprints for the Cleveland Class USS Miami and the New Orleans class USS Astoria. Found them on an old hard drive I haven't used in years, and really don't know from where I downloaded them. Here's a link to a sample image, download the complete sets, each as their own PDF. *EDIT* I also found the Langley, the Ranger, and the Battleship New Jersey.

  13. Hello all, A while ago, I downloaded this mod to replace the ARP ships with their historical Sins. This change worked up until 0.5.5. The ARP Myoko still looks fine, but the Kongo looks a lot less... healthy. The deck texture is exactly the same as the 1942 Kongo, but it looks like this. From the comments in the linked mod, I'm guessing the problem is the .mfm files which were adversely affected by the new file structure. The author seems to think there is nothing that can be done, but if that's the case why is Myoko still fine? Is there something different about the Kongos? Has anyone had any success with skinning the ARP Kongo on 0.5.5+? Thanks in advance for any help. Also if I get a working solution, I'd gladly put up my updated Historical ARP ships mod for download.
  14. Re: WOWS Beta, Modules Screen: I remember there being historical tooltips on each of the upgraded hulls, planes and parts. I can't find a mod that fills this clerical request, but I really enjoy this game so I'm happy to do some legwork. I've attached a couple files to explain where this data used to be in the beta, I wonder why it was removed. So, one pic I included has a Modules screen > Nagato ( C ) Hull Tooltip, which is missing historical information that used to be there The next pic shows some historical info, but only for the Amagi itself. Does anyone know how I can go about re-embedding this data into these tooltips? I have no problem doing the wiki research for the actual historical data.
  15. Game - WWII Revival - Discussion

    Okay guys, due to a post by a certain member I will not mention and the seemingly high interest, I will be reviving the most recently abandoned WWII thread in all it's glory in tabletop tactical format Setting is the world from that thread up to turn 11's moderation.

  16. Era Flags

    As to the flags on what ever nation's ship you would be playing at the moment, will it be put into the game that for WW1 ships you can take a WW1 flag instead of WW2 era flags? Just wondering.
  17. PLEASE NOTE, consider all my skins to be complete reskins. Downloads include textures for aircraft, secondary guns, anti air guns, range finders, directors and misc files. The included files are usually only appropriate for the associated skin. Keep this in mind before overwriting files.

  18. The Fubuki's top speed is wrong.

    According to muliple sources and some research on the Fubuki, her top speed is wrong. It's slated as 35.8kts maximum on the World of Warships wiki (and in the game), yet I've read it as 38kts everywhere else. https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Fubuki-class_destroyer http://ww2db.com/ship_spec.php?ship_id=513 http://www.combinedfleet.com/ships/fubuki Correct the Fubuki's top speed, without the boost or flags, to the real-world & accurate 38kts.
  19. Link to original EU thread: http://forum.worldofwarships.eu/index.php?/topic/29296-mod-wyverns-historical-skin-workshop/ Hello, if you're familiar with another game - War Thunder and use the live site there you might recognise me from my skinning work there. In this thread I'll be sharing the skins I make with you guys, I'll try to keep them all updated as fast as possible! I plan on doing as many historical skins as I can, I hope you like them! Individual skins will be inside the spoilers in order to save space, just looks nicer. Primarily based on the EU server I decided that I would share my work with you guys as well, I will try to keep this thread as up-to-date as possible for you guys! To download simply click the download image below the preview picture which will take you to a direct puush download in a new tab. I have included installation instructions inside the zip file. If you like my work that much feel free to follow this topic (button at the very top right) and you will be notified whenever I post something new or update a mod instantly! All Premium ship skins come with a camouflages file that disables the visual effect of all camouflages ingame. The actual bonuses are still active, the camouflage is just invisible. It should go without saying but I'll say it anyway. If you wish to add any of my skins/mods to a modpack, mod website or whatever please ask me here first if that is ok and if I say no for whatever reason please respect that.

  21. TotenKampf's Custom and Historical Ensigns and Flags Requests and feedback welcomed. (Original thread post http://forum.worldofwarships.com/index.php?/topic/29456-historical-and-custom-ensigns/ ) The aim of these small mods is to provide sharper colours used for the Ensigns flown by the selective nations as well as providing the historically correct ensign flown. Due to the way the file operates. The Russian/Soviet Navies now changes Ensign approprately, however the Hochseeflotte and Kriegsmarine respectively do not. Your choice in download is more for a preference for the German Ensign to be that of der Kaiser, or der Furher. Current plan is to add a modern Ensign pack to replace all Ensigns with the correct current one flown by these nations; as well as novelty flags for holiday's. All national ensigns in both the WW1 and WW2 Historical Packs WW1 Historical Germany WW2 Historical Germany ​1776 War of Independence Custom Ensigns

  23. I'm looking to get certain ships modelled, mostly for history-nerd reasons. What I'm looking for are basically hull numbers and one image added to the stock paint schemes. 1. The USS Reuben James (DD-245) Clemson-class destroyer, first US Warship sunk in WWII and the subject of a Woody Guthrie song I can't seem to get out of my head. USS Reuben James, rear quarter. USS Reuben James, Bow 2. USS Kidd (DD-661) Fletcher-class destroyer, currently a museum ship in my hometown of Baton Rouge, LA. Note the ten-foot-tall Pirate painted on the forward funnel. It's got character. USS Kidd (Note the small hull numbers on the bow) USS Kidd stern (Hull numbers and name) USS Kidd forward funnel (ARRRR) Adding hull numbers and lettering doesn't really seem difficult (In theory) - If I were to attempt it myself, would I need any special programs to alter the stock skins?
  24. Hello People. I have created this thread with the intent for all those that want a historical feel into their ships- a place where recreations of historical (and by extension, scale models) paint schemes are uploaded for all to enjoy, as well as guides/references and trivia on how to paint them. This OP will be updated once things become better. Disclaimer: if you had been in WoT for a certain amount of time, i am a known maker of anime-themed skins. If you followed me into the other game, you would know me as an anime-themed, historical and blank skin provider. Now I'm going to focus on historical just because- with a little anime on and off.
