T72A M1 Decals v. 4.x

Recommended Posts

I'm having problems locating the decals used by the T72M1. My guess is the file is "t72M-decals", but I cannot find the highligted marking in the file. Can someone help me out here what decal files are used by the T72M1?

Specifically, the T-72M1 draws the indicated marking from the lower-left position on the default sovietdecals.dds. So that's the only one you need to change, unless you want also to affect the T-55, T-62, T-64 and other flavors of T-72, which draw from the other positions.

 

If any other potential modders are interested, the graphic below shows the locations the various T-tanks draw their markings from. (This is for reference only, and not a moddable template).

Thanks All! One more question - sometimes there is a decal present on the IR searchlight - sometimes its empty.. Is it randomized whether the T72 has a decal here? I would like to keep the IR searchlight free of any Decal.

Yes, it's randomized. I ran into the same issue when doing my Finland version. The only workaround is to paint your national marking directly on the skin and alpha-out the T72M1 spot on the decal file.

How can I "alpha out" the spot on the decal?

it depends on the paint program you have; i have an older version of photoshop which doesn't handle alpha (meaning transparent) channels, but gimp can do it- if you're using gimp, all you have to do is use the eraser tool and wipe it out

Thanks - I think I got it - I managed to blend it out on the alpha channel. Now it seems I can apply the decal markings to the actual skin itself.
