    New Skins

    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

    New Skins

    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.

    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

    Desert M1A1

    hello, I can now see from the screen shots where I'm working from now. Still requires a few tweaks. I exchanged the number of extra layers to the multi pattern version IMO it does add some dirt effect far better than the Desert scheme (I now prefer the Desert scheme cleaner anyway) as with skinning it's trial & error. Still looking for markings layers. My temporary licence finished today & as I have had only time to connect/set up the sim & test I've had little time since to actually play such, hence unable to set up my own screen shots etc.. Nevermind I'll continue with my attempts at the templates for now, great learning curve. Full credits to the template creator artist which will be added to any finished modifications. Regards David

    File Question

    hello, My WIP template being a .PSD file of layers. I noted the vehicle files for the SB are 'DD' total Noobie here would this be when flattened & saved as a 1024 x1024 .PSD .PDD :question: Regards David

    Desert M1A1

    hello, Thanks for the feedback. Lt (Sean) please feel free to upload the .jpeg images many thanks for your screen shots very much appreciated I used .jpeg as these are a WIP & not yet converted to 'dd' as per sim default. I only wanted to share a WIP mod of the skin. As I've not got an actual sim/licence as yet (temporary licence ran out today) I'm using the templates as practice. The skin is still very much a WIP as I now have a image I can study & add + subtract - what I see. Then again maybe a battle weary tank 'optional' mod is not to everyones liking :icon_frown: ? I've got photo's from my Service plus access to files, I'm using for reference the default skins created by the Pro's from SB. I'm adding the layers to the M1A1cammo version as I think these would look more effective on multi cammo. T.Y for your support appreciated ;-) Regards David Ps. I'm using Adobe PhotoShop CS-6 Extended I did have Corel PhotoShop X3 Pro previously still have loads of swatches & other plug-ins compatibles with both to share.

    Desert M1A1

    hello, quote "I'm not sure it's very practical to have a template for dirt layers." As a noobie to SB, I've still got to learn from the Pros I've created a dirty skin copied as a .jpeg uploaded to the forum (awaiting approval) as I've had issues with the temp' licence SB I'm unable at present to create screen shots of my WIP, by the time I resolve the problem my licence will be up anyway, so I hope with approval of the Mods the .jpeg will be sufficient for time being? If I'm way off the mark & dirt doesn't work with the sim skins well at least I've tried :bigsmile: I'll continue my learning curve on SB until I get around to purchasing the Dongle etc.. Regards David

    Desert M1A1

    hello, Excellent skin :razz: WIP Desert M1A2 skin. I'm looking for a set of markings .psd layer if you can assist? 1024 x 1024 overlay without having to cut to size individual markings & paste into place. I noted (idea) on your skin some dirt I could apply as a layer other than that hopefully something worth while for target practice when complete :lol: Very Big T.Y in advance :wink: Regards David

    hello, Can someone point me to a good tutorial/thread or explanation of this kind of basic skinning process information for Steel Beasts. I know from previous experience, flight sim's skins were 1024x1024px, 72dpi 8bit Index colour, & then was recommended using the 'Bright' plug-in to export skins which I did use on a few from PhotoShop to the sim, it was quick and it gave the best result possible. Any gen appreciated other than that for now I'm sorted. I have a few SB body work templates to get me started which I hope to add a lot more layers & dirty up some more, add some paint schemes. If any SB skin artists have any ready made layers of markings that are already sized, ready to apply, save a lot of cutting as well as pasting, this would be appreciated :razz: also all credits due the the original creator of the templates will be mentioned in the template 'read me.' ;-) Regards David *(Edited) Thanks Mods for moving to correct location.
  21. hello, Bazjak glad to help honestly mate. I understand your from South Wales (hopeful safe weather wise) I know Sennybridge Black Mountains, got friends down in Llanelli & Swansea, mate used to live in Port Talbot (family still there). Good to see your up & running for now. Stay Safe! Regards David
  22. hello, Bazjak did you manage to download the files ok? I understand how slow the connections are down in Wales :redface: Could have sent you a Cd-Rom with the content..I managed to set up the sim from the free trial demo but by the time I actually get around to playing my times up :cry: nevermind it does work on my system & I'll just have to wait till I've got the beans together to purchase the full version. I've started to save various files & templates for now anyway :wink: Ketchup L-8-er! Regards David
  23. hello, Have a browse at this link - http://www.amc.af.mil/news/story.asp?id=123333820 Regards David
  24. hello, Forget the previous request regarding swatches, WIP creating my own from scratch. Regards David :wink:
  25. hello, New to the forum. I've downloaded the trial version as to check compatibility or any issues concerning such, none so far. I'm not a gamer as such I have interest in graphics (hobby) as I have created skins for a few sims over the years coming on 14 years now (still a noobie). Anyway I'm more than impressed with S.B & now looking at purchasing S.B (full version). Any excuse from now till my trial period is over to get some practice in (ahem). Ketchup L-8-er! Regards David
