You need to put the decal DDS files in the mods folder. When all else fails re read the instructions.

Done it. Same issue.

The decals go in our non-documents folder inside the esim directory correct? There is a folder discrepancy in the instructions as well.... one is marked "normals." I don't mean to nit-pick... I'm not like that, just trying to figure out where I goofed.

Guys, you're close and I realize it may seem confusing and a litttle nerve racking installing mods. No one want to screw up the game and have to do a reinstall.

Remember that in every folder that you place the m60A3.dds file, you must also place the m60markings.dds file I have included. The same does for the IPM1.dds and IPM1abrams_decals.dds file.

The IPM1abrams_decals.dds and m60A3markings.dds files are nothing more than "blank" decals that reside in the TIS folder of the actual sim. I copied them and have included them in each pack for simplicity. These blank decals are transparent and allow the decals I place on the skin to be shown.

Hope this helps.

If you mean I left a m60A3 markings reference in the IPM1 instructions, you are correct. This has been fixed.

As for folders marked normal. It is the "normals" folder in the C:\Program Files (x86)\eSim Games\SB Pro PE\textures\woodland\normals to which the contents of the "normal" folder go into. I left out the "s" when naming the normal folder.

Crap. Same issue.

Okay. I did a reinstall and will try again tomorrow.

I have added the specular and normal maps. I have essentially finished the 3-color and even a dunkel gelb version of the 1A3. But I got to tell you I am having fits with the file routing on this one. I have had to go into the texture file itself and not the mods folder to even view the new skins in the sim.
