I recently got the High School Fleet camo for my Yamato. Is there any way to turn off the visual, without removing the camo?

(Everytime I click the 'eyeball' button in the port screen, instead of just not seeing the camo, it removes it)

Not in the vanilla game. Gotta have the visual if you want the bonus, or mod it.

I don't understand.

If I disable the visuals, doesn't that mean that the bonuses should be removed from all enemy ships too that have it equipped?  You know, since it removes my bonuses (simply because I don't want to see it without adding a mod pack).

No. Why would a local filter on your computer impact other players?

If you filter out HSF content you won't see HSF content, and not be able to use HSF content. It doesn't affect others.

If you use your interface option to hide HSF camo, it removes it from your ship altogether (as in you no longer have ANY camo on it, no bonuses), and it will render any ship in-game as having no camouflage in your client.  The enemy ships will still enjoy the bonus, but they will appear to have no camo.  You can't disable HSF camo and retain the bonus, not unless you mod it.

yeah -- you can edit your camo file.  Than save it to your most recent res mod folder.  I do this routinely for the more hideous in-game camos.  Course other folks in match will see the default\in-game camo rather than your mod'd camo.  But at least I don't have to look at the default camo.  The frosty fir one is particularly bad.  I received a ton of these things over the holidays.  the default looks like microwaved vomit.

HSF camo is not in the same file with the others, its a separate skin with geometry changes.  Yeah.  You can still mod it, but it is more involved than manually manipulating camo file.

ah-sooo...perhaps that is why I have been unable to find the Type-59 in the camo file?

No, the type 59 is there, I was able to change it.  It just has a different name, I dont remember what it was.

Ah, found it, the type 59 uses the following texture: Ship_dazzle_tile_camo_SuperEco_27.dds

In the camo file look for Super_ECO_Type_8

sweet...Thanks Ramsalot!

 

Its actually not a bad looking camo in stock.  But I kinda want to fiddle with it for giggles.
