  1. Monochromatic towers worked even better. Trying to do normal turret camouflage is rarely a good idea (except for spotty schemes like measure 12 mod).

    Corrected (redrawn one side, which the Company had symmetrical) the scheme of the cruiser Bayard. It uses a Measure 32 / 3D paint that the Company apparently saw on the Bougainville aviso. But on a ship with such an unusual silhouette, this scheme still looks unusual. The update will most likely be in the next patch. I'll probably add something else by then.

    Thank you for your feedback! I would like to recolor Prince Eitel in the scheme with a red pipe. It has such an unusually low side that any other scheme on it looks somehow strange (although as an option for the future - the post-war scheme of Geben in the Turkish fleet, although I think the company will add it sooner or later). I gave Daring the Vampire color when the Vampire was not yet (I just like the red kangaroo), but I think you are right, and you should give him a different number (and perhaps disable the permanent camouflage, since this is a post-war ship). I made the Asians in this form because there was no time to deal with the company's camouflages, besides, the absence of camouflage for ships flying the flags of China, Korea and other Asian countries is the norm. But someday (when I have dealt with other ships) I will return to them. Contact us - I will be glad to talk. Now, by the way, I drew attention to the low level - there are many interesting things like St. Louis in the coloring of World War 1, which was created by a friend of the USNA - I slightly adjust his work in connection with the found photographs.

    Sure. I can’t promise that I will fulfill some wishes (such as with disposable camouflage events), but I’ll be glad to know your opinion). Hope you enjoy the modification. It doesn't wow, but it makes the visuals of the game less annoying, more neutral. It pleases me for example) Pay attention by the way to the textures of Asians, Japanese, Swedes and Italians.

    All disposable camouflages dedicated to various events are monochromatic, several shades of gray. Yes. True, not all ships (of those nations where camouflages are available, of course) have a full set of camouflages, but at least all ships above level 6 have at least one historical camouflage (when I haven't done something else, I use the Company's permanent camouflage). I am gradually adding new camouflages and hopefully the gaps will become smaller over time. The process is time consuming, so it does not happen as quickly as we would like. And yes, I see no reason to create a type 2 camouflage for destroyers, as well as create a type 1 camouflage for battleships and cruisers). I turn off some permanent camouflages, such as on Agincourt (It was sad to do this, but it bore the color of another battleship. This is beautiful, but not true), or on post-war ships (such as Rooseveld, Salem, while Småland left the color the Swedes had a well-established tradition of using camouflage, although the camouflage they use is probably not his). On some ships, I change it, as happened with Ohio. Ohio had the wrong scheme. By the way, there is a lot of work in this regard, I am not touching something yet, such as Emilio. One-time camouflages cannot be made both historically correct and complex patterns. What will be normal for one ship will look at least strange for the other several hundred ships. That is why I made the overwhelming majority of camouflages gray and now when I go into battle I play a game about history, and not control floating tulips and valentines. It annoyed me comrade, but now it does not (especially in a set with removed extra flags). I explained to comrade above why my disposable camouflages are gray) One pattern template cannot be good for all ships - it will only be good for one ship. I could create a series of spotty camouflages like tank camouflages - but this is nonsense. Russian ships, with the exception of the destroyers, carried almost no camouflage. The use of camouflage by cruisers can be counted on the fingers of one hand. A pair of cruisers of the Pacific fleet of the 26-bis type for which there is a minimum photo (+ Molotov, who is already in camouflage), an old ship of the same type to our Bogatyr, Chapaev (or Zheleznyakov, I did not define exactly, but he is in my fashion) and Murmansk, whose color I haven't drawn yet). Battleships, on the other hand, were painted only once - an old battleship in the years of World War I was painted in an experimental scheme (I forgot about Arkhangelsk that it carried English camouflage, and was painted already in the USSR according to the English scheme). Roughly the same story with the Japanese. I am generally silent about pan-Asians for obvious reasons). Therefore, these nations have a minimum of camouflages. I'm not really sorry about the removable schemes, as it makes the game more attractive to me. I hope you can understand me, as English is not my native language.

    Most camouflages of type 1,2,5 (1,5 for destroyers, 2,5 for battleships and cruisers, 5 for aircraft carriers) are dazzling schemes in the modification. Except, of course, measure 22, the standard admiralty schemes of Great Britain (and France) and ceremonial and other schemes that can hardly be called dazzling. At the same time, the number of unique camouflages is slowly but surely replenished. Of course, there are some nations that have almost no complex camouflage, including the permanent one, which I turned off. This is due to the fact that, for example, ships in Russia, Japan, Asia (with some exceptions) were not camouflaged. If you meant camouflages such as disposable New Years, Halloween, Pi Day, etc., etc., then it is impossible to create a historically correct camouflage for all ships in the game at the same time - so I decided that nothing would be better at all. Yes, it's a little boring. But more historically.

    This update is small. Added paint schemes for Black Swan: The Type 2 camouflage has a Black Swan color scheme. Type 5 camouflage has an Ibis color scheme. The texture of the destroyer Neustrashimiy has been changed. He now carries a tactical number. Updated modification with flags. Download links in 1 topic message. P.S. I did not have time to finish a couple of schemes. I will also update the archive with the gray textures of the Americans this week by adding tactical numbers for Des Moines and Midway. I played a little (a little time), so I hope I did not make critical mistakes and there will be no crashes).

    I hope you find something you can use in your work. By the way, there is a book, you may have already seen it - there is a sufficient number of camouflage sketches for German ships. Based on these sketches, I created a diagram for Ernst Gaede, and Company - a Pommern / Ludendorff diagram. The information, of course, is already belated, since you have already done almost everything, but still)

    The camouflage file was redone again. Nothing critical. But it will be necessary to look better. Hope to change it by the weekend. P.S. I do not understand why it is needed) It seems that they were probably trying to organize the file, but most of the annotations were removed, which divided the file into * chapters * and helped to navigate. In addition, it didn't work out very well either - camouflages for events are mixed with blocks of standard national camouflages. The changes, in my opinion, are not for the better.

    You can use my version of Roman camouflages. Doria and Caracciolo are already done. I haven't finished Vittorio Veneto yet, but you can use Roma camouflage for him (the model is almost the same). I'll be glad to help)

    Update. Changed Roman camouflage for Doria and Caracciolo. Andrea Doria is featured in his 1942 outline. The Caracciolo is based on the 1942 battleship Littorio. By the way. The permanent camouflage of the Caracciolo is similar to the Roman camouflage, as I didn't particularly like the standard camouflage. In the future, the Roman camouflage of Veneto will be changed (and probably Lepanto and Columbus - they are all a little more complicated). Hide contents Added skins for Dresden and Kolberg. Type 2 camouflage has the standard pre-war coloration of these ships with marks on the pipes. Type 5 camouflage represents the pre-war ceremonial color of Dresden and the 1915 Kolberg color with a red chimney. Thank you Mailman653! Nothing could be done with Karlsruhe, since the structure of the game did not allow making the camouflage look the same for both hulls. Hide contents A standard Admiralty scheme has been added for most of the UK tier 6-10 upgradeable ships. It remains to make a couple of destroyers for the complete set. Some camouflages were created using the work of KylerAdams. Thanks to him! Hide contents Added type 5 camouflage for Weymouth and Caledon. These camouflages were created on the basis of USNA_76 works, which, in turn, were created on the basis of museum sketches of camouflages from the period of World War I for the cruisers Dublin and Caledon, respectively. In the future, I think it is worth adding camouflage colors for these ships that they used in reality. Hide contents I think in a week I will update the mod, add and fix some things that I have not had time now. I hope everything goes without bugs).

    For testing purposes, I post the textures of Italians and Americans. Links below. Italians. Americans. These are the standard textures in which I have changed the saturation, making them more gray. Also for some ships I added modified mg-textures (they mainly paint the porthole covers).
  13. Lutjens41

    [0.10.3] Simply Grey Paint + Historical camouflage v1

    Yes. I incorrectly formulated the proposal) I meant that the camouflage does not cover all parts of the ship. The rails, masts, some boxes, some rangefinders are not painted - over time I hope the Company will add them to the list of paintable textures - but now they are not painted with camouflage. They remain the traditional color of a particular fleet (if I may say so) which does not always look good with camouflages that are often gray. I will give an example of my Fiume coloring. Notice how the lines and other parts stand out in 1 screenshot. With the help of additional modification, everything becomes more neutral (and besides, I worked with the mg texture, and now the covers of the open windows are painted over). Right?) The same story is with the Americans (including the South), Asians, Italians - other nations are still fine with me). P.S. I once wanted to paint an Italian Lira for Romulus. But then I realized that this was unnecessary.

    Added a link to the Pan-Asians archive (with the added tactical number of the destroyer Gadjah Mada) in 1 post of the topic. I also changed the post itself a little, I think the pictures in the center look more convenient. By the way, I use similar modified textures on Americans and Italians. For these nations, the standard textures also have an unusual shade that shines through when using gray camouflages. If you are interested - I can also add them - a couple of minuses - they need to be updated with each addition of ships in the development tree of these nations (this is a minus for me), and they take up memory on the hard disk.

    It's okay) There is no nonsense, if only things that are difficult to implement) I am glad for feedback, advice. What's wrong with the 60s by the way?) Sorry if that. I have been since 1991, and the history of ships became interesting to me from one of the books from the library) I tried to answer the questions according to the points) there is a lot of text, so I will hide it under the spoilers) 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) 6) For the Italian battleships, I will use the Company's permanent camouflages, as I have not done anything for them yet. By the way, I regret that the Cavour will not receive a paint job, since it was modeled for an earlier period. Thank you so much. As you may have noticed, in some cases I try to maintain a balance between the story and the more memorable look of some of the colors. While it seems to me it works out. I will listen to your advice. I am glad that there are still people who are interested in this topic. Contact us, feedback and help is awesome)
