[MOD] Camouflage of the Wehrmacht

Recommended Posts

7dSC3LS.png

 

This modification changes the German armor, support vehicles, artillery, prime movers and more from their default grey to either Hinterhalt-Tarnung (Ambush Camo), a late war pattern, or the Tri-Color Disruptive Camo that was increasingly utilized in the East starting in 1943 and first appeared during Operation Citadel at the Battle of Kursk. The infantry have also been retextured to include the Splittermuster 31 smock, new trousers, a Y-Harness has been added, as well as helmet and soft cover decals and insignia. An optional Waffen SS infantry camo in Eichenlaubmuster (Oakleaf) is available for replacement should you decide to use it. Instructions on installing it are in the README found in the zip file.

 

While a lot of work has been done, this mod is by no mean complete and is still very much a Work-in-Progress. If you come across any issues, missing textures, bugs etc please post here with a description and screenshot if possible. Any and all feedback is appreciated.

I accidentally deleted the PSD's prior to moving them over to my external. I could certainly add to it, but fixing any issues with the already released assets would mean I'd have to go back and recreate 40+ templates I made. And I'm not doing that.

 

Still can't get over doing that....

I followed the install instructions and now have the three color cameo.Interestingly enough not on all the trucks but about half of them only. That’s ok since in the war I doubt whether every single truck in the Heer was painted the same way.At the same time all the half tracks , artillery pieces & tanks have the new cammo.

   I do have a question: how & in what way does the SS cammo work or show up? At least up to this point I can’t see it either on vehicles or uniforms...so where should I look?

Salutations,

 

Images look great. Where exactly is the games Mods folder or do I have to create one? If so, where exactly should I place it? Thanks. 😐

If you're using the Waffen SS option then yes, all if the infantry, operated vehicles, dismounts, arty and AT gun personnel will be wearing the WSS uniform. As for tank crews I have no idea. I didn't know of nor could I find a tanker uniform in the file structure. If not using that option then the ground personnel will use the Wehrmacht retexture that's included in the mod.

I backup everything on my external. I just failed to do so this time.

  • Open your IL-2 directory (you'll see bin, data, screenshots folders etc).
  • Download JSGME.
  • Place the jsgme_setup.exe into the IL-2 directory.
  • Run the installer and allow it to create a MODS directory.
  • Open the MODS directory and drag the two folders from my mod (Hinterhalt-Tarnung Pattern and Tri-Color Disruptive Pattern) in said folder.
  • Back out to the main IL-2 directory and run JSGME.
  • Select the Camo Pattern you'd like to use under Available Mods and click Enable Selected Mod.
  • Profit.

 

Should look something like this. Remember, only enable one Camo Pattern at a time. Never enable both.

Because of a new reinstall I've had to download & install again.Unfortunately after putting the folders in my MODS folder , they don't show up in my JSGME utility to transfer into the sim. I can do them manually, but not with JSGME...🙄

Hi Blitz,

You could give it a try.

Is this mod replacing every normal uniform? Or you will see camo and normal feldgrau, same with vehicles.

UPDATE - I did back it up! I just moved the folder containing my PSD templates into the wrong folder. And considering how many liveries I've done for the IL2/FSX/P3D platforms, it's no wonder I couldn't find them. Oddly enough, I thought they were copied to my IL-2 custom textures folder and they ended up in the Lufthansa folder instead. Go figure.

 

It was only by pure luck that I found them while doing a keyword search that a reference popped up. Game on!

Every uniform for the infantry, dismounts, field personnel etc is replaced.

  •  
  • Download JSGME
  •  
  • Place the jsgme_setup.exe into the IL-2 directory.  I downloaded JGSME to my desktop, Do I place the Jsgme_setup.exe IN the folder  OR  or do I execute it and point TO the IL-2 directory folder?
  •  
  • Run the installer and allow it to create a MODS directory. --I run the folder (exe it) once its placed INSIDE the IL2 BoS folder?
  • Open the MODS directory and drag the two folders from my mod (Hinterhalt-Tarnung Pattern and Tri-Color Disruptive Pattern) in said folder.--bit confused on this step..I open the mods folder inside the BOS folder that I created by executing JSGME? To whwere do the two folders get dragged?
  • Back out to the main IL-2 directory and run JSGME.
  • Select the Camo Pattern you'd like to use under Available Mods and click Enable Selected Mod.
  • Profit. 

I used to use JGSMe a LOT for silent hunter 5 but that was many years ago, and unfortunately I've just forgotten the ins and outs, and dont want to mess it up..thanks
