  1. Current Version: 0.6.8.0 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. Thanks go out to MasaruKondera of Wo-Era Mods for the script in the Historical Naval Ensign and Signal Flags mod. 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. Historical Naval Ensign and Signal Flags: Shōkaku-class Aircraft Carrier: Kuma-class Cruiser: Hull A: Hull B: Wickes-class Destroyer: Town-class Destroyer: Dresden-class Cruiser: Hull A: Queen Elizabeth-class Battleship:
  2. 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.

  3. 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)!

  5. Greetings Captains! We are looking to fill TWO SPACES on our Wiki Team! Do you have what it takes? Well, here is your chance to prove it. We would like for you to write a 500 word essay on Admiral Graf Spee. Tell us a bit about the creation, history, and overall make up of this ship. This contest will run from 1530 Pacific Thursday 12/01 through 0900 Pacific Monday 12/05. We will be judging on facts, spelling, punctuation, and grammar. So make sure it is buttoned up and ready to go by the deadline. Also, we will be checking for copy and pasting! Don't be that guy PLEASE! The community will catch you and so will we. You will be disqualified from any future writing contests. Thanks.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  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. 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.
  10. 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.

  11. 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
  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. USS New Jersey, BB62 USS Langley CV2 USS Ranger CV4 USS Astoria CA34 USS Miami CL89
  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. 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.
  16. 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
  17. 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.
  18. 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?

  20. 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.
  21. I just though something up~ Maybe their could be Historical missions that involve multiplayer battles where the HMS Hood and GBS Bismarck get voted too players and the rest of the ships are ships or planes that were present that day I would love too see a HMS Hood VS GBS Bismarck happen ingame!
  22. Title pretty much says it. Are the battleships starting at Dreadnought with pre-director fire control, and progressing to say Montana firing using analog computing with radar direction and ranging? If so there is quite a good deal of discussion that might be useful input for the DEVs (I hope) and interesting to the assembled regarding the very large number of ships in the 1905 to 1919 range that I think deserves it's own section. Thanks.
