  1. Well... There are different ways of finding out what part of the texture belongs where, but essentially you're doing everything right. Most parts can be matched to the 3D model by simply looking at it ( you know for example what a Tiger's turret roof looks like), others have to be colored and found. This is far easier than doing them from scratch though...
  2. From one modder to the other: OUTSTANDING. There should be more such projects! Too bad I can't help because I'mw ay too busy for my own good...
  3. Hm... Well, some of those old modders aren't around anymore as far as I can tell. MikeyD is doing ALL of the official game textures and is a part of the BFC team. I help him with that from time to time. And IF I find some spare time, I still mod. But nothing has been finished properly yet that I could show...
  4. AWESOME! And downloaded. Honestly, I don#t understand why people have beenr ating this rather poorly. This is very good for your first effort. I did much worse when I started doing textures...
  5. Now we're REALLY getting somewhere. Those PzIVs are looking awesome. Carry on, your skills improve day by day!
  6. Looking good what you're doing there! Suggestion: make the tint of the last tiger less... um... greenish yellow and more tan. The current color looks a bit odd even if it fits the surroundings. Or am I the onlxy one seeing a mustard-like color?
  7. Now THAT looks like a scenario worth playing over and over again... awesome map from what I can see. Is it done yet?
  8. Then do better. Else just keep quiet. Maybe he likes the colors that way? I'm not really impressed by your attitude, how do you find that?
  9. Well, if in the future we'll be able to edit the UV mapping of some models that already was enough for me. Quite a few vehicles have badly mapped parts and it'd be awesome to be able to correct that. Not that I can use Blender, I'm a simple texture guy...
  10. May I politely request some variety? The following are pictures of more or less contemporary equipment: Admitted, the colors are a bit odd and those patterns could very well be "invented" just to make everything look cool, but since we're in a more or less fictional setting...

  11. Quick repost of my teaser: Still fiddling with details, but this might be what you're looking for. W.I.P. thread coming soon to a mod forum near you!
  12. Hm... Well, I do see - a VERY faded - standard pattern on the "018" and the "122". It is possible they're using non-permanent paint tht washes and/or fades pretty quickly and was just applied to make the equipment look good for the media and the people. They take what they can get and having evey tank camouflaged is taking time. From what I've seen, the Ukrainians have/use about a DOZEN different patterns for their vehicles - some old, some pretty new and still being tested. There even is some kind of digital pattern seen on some BMD-2s. The most likely scenario is that older equipment carries old patterns (like the Soviet-era standard 3-tone one), intermediate equipment is rather green than anything else and the newest stuff would be painted in either this digital pattern or the black/grey/green 3-tone one.
  13. Let me counter with a picture which shows repaired/reissued equipment from December 2014: Not QUITE sure, but this looks like a T-64BV as well... Here's the link to the article so everyone can check for themselves: http://warwall.ru/news/vsu_poluchili_bolshoe_kolichestvo_otremantirovannoj_voennoj_tekhniki/2014-12-07-907
  14. Good question. Given the situation in teh ukraine, those tanks might not have been painted becasue they are needed at the frontline. Remember that German tanks during WW2 were issued in PLAIN yellow - to be camouflaged by the crews according to the local situation. In my opinion it's most likley a time issue in this case. Plus, in this weather the vehicles will soon be covered by a thick layer of mud, dust and other dirt and you wouldn't see any camo pattern anyway...
  15. Let me finish it, then we'll see. But since it was a friend's request I might just give it away for free. :cool:
