Updated August 21st, 2019 for version 0.8.7.0

 

I've been tempted for a while now to create a UI mod based on the Kantai Collection game.  Drawing on the lessons I learned in creating the Azur Lane UI mod, I was able to complete this one in a shorter amount of time.  The project wasn't without its challenges, but I hope the finished project meets everyone's expectations.  I'll continue to keep both UI mods up-to-date for the foreseeable future, as long as players continue to download and enjoy the mods.

 

I've set up a Discord server so players can easily get in touch with me.  You can see what I'm currently working on, as well as download some of my work that isn't available here on the forums yet.  https://discord.gg/z58ByKX

 

There's also my Twitch account if I feel like streaming the development in real-time:  https://www.twitch.tv/compassr0se

Download the Login Videos here:  http://www.mediafire.com/file/6a1eattci5dda8l/KantaiLoginVids.zip/file

Download the core mod here:  http://www.mediafire.com/file/vyf9g301ng68ap8/CR_KantaiEnchant.zip/file

 

** Make sure you unzip the file directly to the res_mods\0.8.7.0 directory **

** And only install when your particular server has been patched to version 0.8.7.0 **

 

The following is a breakdown of the major sections of the mod:

 

Custom login / game loading screens

The splash screen, like your standard client pulls from one of several landscape graphics during initial loading, followed by one of several video possibilities.

Custom Dockyard Graphics

  • Various ship module upgrades (Hull, main guns, fire control, etc...)
  • Consumables
  • Ship Upgrades
  • Reward Crates
  • IJN Tech-tree only, other nations will most likely be an Azur Lane port with some Kantai modifications
  • Female commander icons (portraits will not conflict with the new Azur Lane commanders for 7.5)
  • Commander Skill Tree
  • Port selection screens

Since this is 1.0 I'm sure I'll be keeping a critical eye as I use it myself, and make changes here and there.  Let me know what you think.

does this mod include skins? I saw there is skin on the icon and I installed the mod already but there is no skin on the ships

Hi, @ShR1mPpBa1Ls.  The ship skins are available in other threads.  You can either join my Discord to obtain them all (follow the link in the original post), or look through the 'Graphical Modifications' section here in the forums to obtain just the 'major' skin packs.

For those that follow my anime ship skins, 2 new Kancolle ships have been added to the IJN bundle.  Kagero (Shiranui), and Yamato.  They are available for download on my Discord server.
