Hi! So a while ago I downloaded and edited Secession's Imperator Nikolai I's custom white-and-gold skin, turning it into a black-and-gold and a black-white-and-gold skin. After that, I started editing skins of my own, making a whole bunch of them. So here's my custom skin collection...

Notes:

Spoiler

- If the ship has a premium camo, you need to disable it (tutorial on how to do it below), otherwise mounting the camo will cover the custom skin. Disabling the camo only affects the visuals, not the bonuses, so you still get those.

- For the Nassau, Bayern, Kongo, Amagi and South Carolina you get both the clean and rusted skins together.

- For the Nassau, in both versions, you can go to content\gameplay\germany\gun\main\textures and choose which skin you want for the main guns (with white circles or the coat of arms)

- For the Amagi, in both versions, you can go to content\gameplay\japan\ship\battleship\textures and choose which skin you want for the main hull (black or white smokestack)

- For the Bayern, on the rust-free version, you can go to content\gameplay\germany\ship\battleship\textures and choose between stripes or no stripes for the hull

- For the Imperator Nikolai I and the Oktyabrskaya Revolutsiya you get all skin variations in the same package.

- The Gneisenau now has two skins: One only affects the ship's deck, guns and superstructure and is meant to be used with the premium camo, so you don't have to disable it. The other also changes the hull, and it requires the permanent camo be made invisible. Both are in the same package.

- The Großer Kurfurst skin I made uses Tanz's GK skin as a template, adding rust and the colours and coat of arms of the Weimar Republic. All credit for the original camo goes to him: https://forum.worldofwarships.com/topic/22352-tanzs-shipyard/

- Almost all japanese battleships share the same type of secondary guns. For their dual purpose secondaries, all free ships, from Kongou to Yamato, have 127mm dual turrets. So the skin file for those (file name: JGS009_127mm40_Type_89_a) is used by all of them. The Yamato has a different skin file, making the turrets dark grey, while the others have white turrets. If you download the Yamato and at least one of the other free battleships, you have to choose either white or dark grey 127mm dual turrets.

- For reasons I don't know,you can't make Mutsu's camo invisible with the standard method I describe below. If anyone figures out how to do this, please tell me.

- The Großer Kurfurst also uses the same dual purpose secondary guns from Gneisenau, so if you have the DDR Gneisenau, you'll see the red turrets with the communist symbol on the Großer Kurfurst too.

- For the Hood you get the same skin files twice, one for the regular hull, and the other for the The Last Conquest special hull. If you don't have the TLC hull, use the regular one. If you have it, you can choose to replace the regular skin, but you have to disable the premium camos, or replace the TLC skin and keep the premium camos visible.

- Richelieu's and Gascoigne's "High contrast République camo" skin are for their respective Répiblique camos, not for the regular hull.

- The Dunkerque "FTFY Fleur d'Acier" skin is for the Fleur d'Acier special hull. If you want it for the regular hull, I recommend Wyvern's Dunkerque skin, which is almost the same: 

https://forum.worldofwarships.com/topic/48257-06150-wyverns-historical-skin-workshop/

- Dunkerque's "Fleur de lis" skin is for the regular hull and requires Dunkerque's standard permanent camo be made invisible.

- Here's Secession's page with the original Imperator Nikolai I skin I used as a template for mine (which I uploaded with his permission; all credit for the original goes to him): 

- The three skins for Oktyabrskaya Revolutsiya work well with the Krasny Oktyabr camo (the red and yellow one with "CCCP" painted on the middle of the hull), the black and orange one being the best for it, so if you have it, you can make the standard camo invisible and keep using that one. That's what I'm doing.

Spoiler

OuzCSbI.jpg

- Neither the Yamato skin, nor the Musashi skin clash with the High School Fleet camo for each ship. Like Dunkerque's Fleur d'acier and Hood's and Bismarck's Hunt for the Bismarck camos, those work as separate hulls with their own skin files.

- For some reason, if you try to make Roma's permanent camo invisible, you won't find it under the ship's name in the camouflages.xml file. It is located under "<!--//ITA UNIQUE Duca degli Abruzzi colour scheme 03-->". Yeah, I don't know why either.

 


Also, a quick guide to removing permanent cammos:

First, you need to put this file into the \Games\World_of_Warships\res_mods\0.7.0.2 folder: http://www.mediafire.com/file/356nv1mjpp9mmdq/camouflages.xml

Then you open it as a text file and open the search tool (Ctrl+B). You search for a key word matching the ship's cammo you want to edit (hint: look at the name of the skin files; some ships have names completely different from their in-game names) Here I'll look for the Aurora, which for some reason they put under the name "avrora" with a "V". You keep hitting next until you find something like this:

Spoiler

The search tool is in spanish because I'm from Argentina

9mfuYH5.jpg

If the ship has more than one permanent cammo, like the Tirpitz, you'll find them one after the other:

Spoiler

Here's another example of one skin with a name that doesn't match the ship's name. Tirpitz is written "Tirpiz", without the "T". For these cases it is useful to search for one part of the name, not all of it. Here I searched for "tir" after failing to find "tirpitz":

DWgjziD.jpg

Below that you'll find four lines reading "<color0>" thru "<color4>" with a string of numbers. You only need to change those four lines of numbers from whatever values they have to "0.000 0.000 0.000 0.000". Then you save the file.

Spoiler

UXTmW4e.jpg

And you're done! Now the cammo is invisible, but you still enjoy the bonuses it offers.

Spoiler

Here's a pic of the Dunkerque with a white and rusty skin I made. You can see that the cammo is on, but invisible:

Warning: Unlike skins, which you can change, add or remove while running the game and see the changes on your ships by just selecting another ship, then going back to the ship you want, this doesn't work with the game running. You need to close the game and launch it again to see the change.


Enjoy!

Thanks! I also edited a Nassau skin I found to give it the white-&-orange skin they used for the Halloween Special battleship. I'm waiting for the creator to give me permission, but here's a preview:

Hi!

I added a skin for the 2nd hull of the New York with a wooden deck (literally the only change).

Also, as a preview, here's a skin I'm editing for the Bayern, inspired on the Bismarck model WG made for the Hunt for the Bismarch campaign:

I still need to fnish with some of the details like the secondary guns, but as soon as I finish it, I'll upload it.

So I just added a skin for the Bayern. Also, I uploaded the files to Mediafire because someone had a problem downloading files uploaded to the EU server.

 

Edit: Blurred the potentially offensive symbols on the images and removed the literal words from the post.

Thanks! Also, thank you for recommending my skins to Aslain. That is a huge compliment, consdering I just started doing this less than a month ago.

 

Also, a guy on Reddit said it looked too white and shiny. And that thought got stucked in my mind, popping out every time I played the ship, like a mosquito buzzing next to my ear while I try to sleep. So now I'm trying to make a rusty version of it too (I curse that guy to suffer a thousand nights of mosquitoes buzzing next to his ears while he tries to sleep), which I'll upload maybe this weekend. Dealing with rust is hard.

 

I have a few others planned, including one for the french cruiser Jurien, the german cruiser Dresden, the russian cruiser Novik, and of course a GWF skin for the US cruiser Chester(give Tier II cruisers some love), but life happened so I won't be able to work on this too much for the time being.

I'd like your opinion on the new rusty version. This was my first time trying to keep the rust on the ship, so if it looks good, I can keep doing it on others.

Here are three skins I'm currently working on:

Yamato - Empire of the Rising Sun:

I'm working on a few others (communist Bismarck and Gneisenau, Fleur d'Acier style Hood, fascist Warspite...) so I can't make any promises. I'm interested though, so maybe. If I do, I might do the Fuso too.

MAJOR UPDATE!

I added new skins for more ships, and also alternate versions of skins I already made. I also improved a few ones, like the GWF St. Louis. I also updated the tutorial for making camouflages invisible and changed the old, now inoperative file for the new one (after the 0.6.9 update the old file stopped being compatible and made the game crash).

 

Enjoy! (yes, that's an order)

Another one I'm working on: Großer Kurfurst - Weimar Republic edition (so you can punish inferior Ünterkriegsschiff in the name of democracy and freedom).

Spoiler

In case you know Tanz's work (or not), this one is based on his Großer Kurfurst skin. What I did is add rust and then the colours and coat of arms of the Weimar Republic.

To my surprise, it wasn't as complicated as with the Kongou. Amagi's files are better organized, so it didn't take that long. I'll add this one to the next upload... which I don't know when will happen, because I have a few others to finish.
