Need help to make a decision for M60 texture


Recommended Posts

Hello

I would like to change the standard NATO textures for the vehicles. I don't like that brown! 😑

Have made some variants, but I can't decide which one I should go for.. What do you guys think?

 

Here is the Link to the Z-Zip, if someone wants to try it out "in real". 🙂 (put it in the z-Folder, you should know how to change the Variants..)

Thank you for your opinions.

It doesn't have to be historically correct, that would be too difficult to achieve, with just changing colors in the standard textures. 😶

-V1 is a bit like the swedish vehicle-camo. It looks a bit bright compared to the others, but ingame it looks nice. (at least in my opinion)

-V2 Is a bit meh! Nothing really special.

-V3 Is my favourite, i just hope that I can achive the same look for all vehicles...

-V4 Is a bit too "plastic toy"

-V5 Has a very good camouflage, it will be difficult to see the tank on the map.. 😇

-V6 Looks "realistic", but isn't.

I tend to v3 or v6. I think I'll do v1 too, because it's very easy to change.

Thank you CptMiller. All variants for all Vehicles would be a bit.. too work intensive. 😏 So if you can choose, which one should it be?

Ahh ok I understand. This is a proof of concept. 
 

Hmm if I had to choose I would say it’s a toss up between V1 (which looks like the actual summer MERDC) and V5 which I think looks like a great subdued, weathered tone.

You've got a couple green/green MERDC camou vehicles in the game (summer M48), it may be best to try to match the lighter green color already in the game.

That's a good point. I think I'll have to skin different vehicles to see what it looks like overall. (Bradley, M113) Abrams is difficult... Maybe change it back to plain green M1.
The Plan is to change them all, so that they look uniformly. But then there are the special cases M1, M2 & M3... Battlefront, why? 😐

@all, thanks for the feedback.

Those look great! I actually like the variety on display here. People can always pick and choose which ones they want to see the most too!

Nice Pics, thanks. So, historically the M1 and M2/3 had no camo pattern in CW-Times?

I saw that dpabrams has made this wonderful skins for the Bradley and Abrams. If I could implement them, the overall look would be achieved. (For me personally more important then "historically correct") 🙂

I have seen photos of stateside Bradley's and M1's in MERDC from the time period............I think. It means I have to dig through books and I hate that. More summer MERDC later.

Still needs som work, but a first impression. The Bradley and the M1 is "retextured" from @dpabrams. If you don't want that I use your Skins, please tell me and i will remove them.

If I find the time, i will do V4 and V6 too.

Put in the Z-Folder: V1 & V2 BETA

 

Btw... is there a option to increase the file size for pictures here? And why can't i edit my posts?

I use imgur to upload images. They automatically embed here.

Congrats on the first release! I'll take a look when I have some time to. When you feel more confident about the textures, you can post them in the Mod subforum. That is usually where people look for skins and such like this, and will likely make it easier for people to find your stuff.

Thank you Cpt. Miller. The textures in the link are just a demo, to see how the color changes are looking for all vehicles. Now I am doing the details, in better quality, for the 4 variants V1, V3, V4, V6. They now have new names, V1-4.

V1 NEW = V1 on the First Pic in this topic.

V2 NEW = V3 on the First Pic in this topic.

V3 NEW = V4 on the First Pic in this topic.

V4 NEW = V6 on the First Pic in this topic.

I will post them in the Mod subforum. This topic should be there anyway, but I didn't saw the Mod subforum when I created this topic.

V2 (was v3)

The above is what I meant with V2 (was v3). I can't write/speak well in english. Not my main language, and I never learned it. But I can read it very well. 🙂
