Since I started playing this game I have always enjoyed the custom skins made by all of you here, so I decided to follow in your footsteps.

United Kingdom

Prince of Wales - This skin is based on HMS Prince of Wales' appearance in November-December 1941, during convoy escort duty in the Mediterranean and the last time she was photographed in Colombo Sri Lanka, shortly before her destruction and tragic loss. I really enjoyed doing this historic ship and I think you will be happy with the way she looks. I chose the KGV texture as my starting point, so make sure you back-up any KGV skins you want to keep. Turrets are shared with HMS York so I tried to use coloration that should not conflict too much with skins you might have for her, but still match hull I created for Prince of Wales. Open to ideas if you have them.

HMS Queen Elizabeth, 1943, with matching gun turrets. These turrets are shared with HMS Warspite and align well with most versions of the skins available for download. This skin is based on an actual photo of the ship taken shortly after her upgrades completed at Norfolk Naval Shipyard.

HMS Malaya - This is a Semi - Fictitious skin that assumes HMS Malaya received the pilothouse upgrades that she actually never received. The hull paint scheme is historically correct.

HMS Ajax (HMS Leander) - Mid 1941 I updated it to get the turrets to match better. Secondaries are available if you download from Wyvern's Iron Duke.

RF Bretagne and Normandie - as they would have appeared late in the 1st decade / early 2nd decade of the 20th Century. This paint scheme includes black main turrets, supporting barbettes; and secondary guns.  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" photo shop rendering of the RF Normandie, created by alt_naval, as if she had actually been built. Both ships have the stack stripes that appear in many period photographs of the RF Bretagne

Glorie 1944 - updated to make corrections to dazzle paint scheme. Many thanks to Albrecht_Brandi for his assistance in getting this right. I also added Glorie name to stern quarter of the hull.

Chung Mu - This ship was transferred to the ROKN in 1963 and I have been asked by several folks where I came up with the idea to paint her in this particular scheme.  I based it on the model a scratch built model constructed by Son, Jung Gun. You can view his work here. Based on some additional research I do not believe that is a historical paint scheme. What I believe is the model builder constructed the ship from wood and he wanted that to be obvious when it was displayed. Based on that I am offering the ship in 3 seperate schemes: The Brown scheme shown below, a ROKN haze gray scheme and a WWII USN Ms22 scheme worn by USS Erben before her transfer to the ROKN.

She displays her ship's crest on the forward stack; and the Engineering, Communications and Battle Efficiency E's on her after stack and bridge wings, respectively. The Naval Reserve  Destroyer Squadron 32 Logo is displayed on the bulkhead amidships. The second and 3rd downloads depict this destroyer in two liveries she wore during her tenure in the ROC N.

Yes, very, very odd...they really need to do a better job of moderating.

Hey, USNA, I saw your post in another thread about believing your original thread was deleted for not having the updated version number in the title.  I suspect that may have been what happened to mine, as well.  I noticed that some mods have [ALL] in their title rather than a specific version #, so I've decided to use that in my new one, because it does accurately describe these skin mods: they work in all versions, and don't have to be updated with each patch (unless something on the original texture gets changed).  So you might try that.

I spend a great deal of time making these skins and I don’t do final anti-aliasing until I flatten the skins to remove all layers. Once they are flattened,  making changes is very time consuming, so I like to see what you guys think, before I do that. I really prefer to use historically correct skins, if at all possible, unless it’s a post WWII “paper ship” or a postwar ship that shares turrets with a WWII era ship (USS Des Moines is a good example). Most French ships had historic paint schemes. In the case of the Panasian ships WG has lumped ships together from many different countries, so I must ensure conflicts don’t occur with turrets, gun mounts and misc files. So keeping these ships’ skins pretty basic helps in that regard. 

I'm also quite open to making non-historic skins, just let me know what you have in mind and I will be glad to consider it.

OK, Fushun and an updated Anshun (small quality control fixes) are ready for download. If someone would like to have non-historical camos for these ships, or any others for that matter, just let me know what ideas you might have and we can give it a try =D

OK, Bottom Line Up Front (BLUF) - if you have downloaded the T8 Hseinyang from me before you should delete file ZSD005_Hsiang_Yang_1945_a.dds and ZSD005_Hsiang_Yang_1945_ao.dds

 

If you really care why, the answer is WG is trying to make me crazy and here is why...

1. The T8 Panasian DD is call "Hseinyang" in-game

2. The Texture file for the the A and B hulls for the "Hseinyang" is called  ZSD004_Hsien_Yang_1945_a.dds

3. The hull for the T10 Panasian DD is called "Yeuyang" and the hull for the Yueyang is "ZSD005_Hsiang_Yang_1945_a.dds"...after all this I got confused and had to fix it...alkl better now.

You can't make this stuff up =P

I just luv that Chung Mu paint scheme =D I moved the hull number slightly forward to match photos of the actual ship. As a 27.5 year veteran of the USN I can tell you for a fact, side number location changes during a ship's life are rare...too much damn work to move them, unless the work is done by a shipyard.

Ok sports fans =)

Here is a version of the FRA Algerie that I am experimenting with and I would like to know what you all think. This is basically an historic scheme, but I was disappointed by the fact that all four turrets on the ship use the same texture file. The actual ship's national markings were only applied to the roof of Turret 2. For that reason I moved the French national markings to the bulkhead below Turret 2, as I definitely wanted French players to have a ship with the tri-color. It may not be the sexiest skin out there, but it's pretty much what she wore and that is my usual approach. If anyone would like to have her in a non-historic scheme just give me some ideas and we can also give it a try.

If you are a fan of Japanese destroyers and you have the Harekaze and / or Kagero, you absolutely must have this skin that Mebius created. This skin is a true masterpiece and it can be found here. Check it out =D
