New Skins

hello,

I've finally got around to a meagre attempt on a couple of skins for SB. M1A2 & the AMX-13 (both fictional) patterns designed on the USMil BDU Woodland Pattern. I've uploaded both if anyone wants to try them out (full credits to both original template artists) made a few small changes added a few layers along with a Woodland layer I had on file. I used this on another sim vehicle & looked awesome there, so hopefully works for SB. Giving it a try, if no good I'll remove the files & start again, so all feedback welcomed regardless. I will endeavour to keep the skins as historically correct as possible rather than fictional, just wanted to try out this layer for effect.

Regards

David

Well the AMX-13 isn't in the Sim, so I'm not sure how people are going to test it? :)

Hi Mark,

you are right, but you can create the skin for the AMX-13.

The template you can find on dejawolfs homepage.:)

best regards

Duke

hello,

Oops :-? I haven't got the sim as yet, only had a temp licence as to check compatibility with my system, which it does work. It's my understanding that such from a template can be placed in the sim as A1 but not playable correct :?: I have a list of vehicle templates that can be skinned as well as playable in the sim. I'll work at both anyway keep me busy in the meantime. Thanks for the reply lads keeping me on the right tracks so to speak.. ;)

Regards

David

Ps. Full credits as always to template creator in this case dejawolfs. I'll create a 'read me' with credits in future contained with any WIP.

Um "no". :)

The "skin" is purely to make the underlying vehicle look "pretty", you need the model itself before it will appear in the sim.

A M1 skin can be applied to a M1 model to display a M1 in the skin's colour scheme.

Just doing a skin for an AMX-13 does not mean that a AMX-13 will suddenly appear on the ground .:)

There have been videos about the AMX13 since years on dejawolf's Yt account - I'm sure it will appear in the sim as well someday:

Excellent post daskal.

The AMX is no beauty but in its day it was a great piece of engineering

One suggestion for you is to not name your files like "ebz7350_Leopardo2E.dds" because if a newcome drop that file in the mods folder it wont show up as the file name must match exactly. So a better idea is to rename the files back to original name "Leopardo2E.dds".

Seasoned players realise that your name should be removed but not everyone is seasoned, so you would do them a favor if you removed your nick from the file name :)

hello,

Duke (911) I really appreciate your patience with the skin arrangements & my sincere apologies to the forum if such has caused any disruption or confusion. I just added my tag 'ebz7350' as I'm used to this for other WIP, what I can do for future reference & immediate is upload a fresh set of skins as I have such on file as you suggested. Hopefully from what I can see from the images IMO these look ok & I hope the user find such of use too. Thank you all for your understanding of the matter. I'll march off to the Gaurd Room now 'RMP/Provos & Escort' for a Beasting :wink:

Regards

David
