Is it possible to put the 502 nd emblem (mammoth) of Otto Caruis tank on the right side next to the MG port?

 

Tank you in advance for your work and patience.

Didnt someone already release a normal map with the zimmerit effect?

I don't know. But it would be nice if that is the case.

 

Edit: Right, there is one. Thanks!

I thought detcord had stopped his in favour of Pierre's.

I did. But @Pierre64 never quite finished his version so I made some alterations to the existing bump myself. I'm hopeful he'll come back and finish it one day.

If the normal map file was tied to the skin file (e.g by using the same name + _b) and the default normal map was used if this was not present then the skins could be made more creative and divergent than is currently possible. This shouldn't be difficult and with tanks could really pay off. The alternative is to paint textures on to the skins but this just is not as striking when viewed from different angles.

 

Yes that would be amazing, each skin could be very unique.

 

Excellent work with the skins and the bump map work above!!

Update to find more information about the tank.
In Kurks the Pz III was obsolete and was used as a command vehicle in car hunting battalions, so the number that bears "001"
Also the name on the skirt and the green color of the camo.:soldier:

Vehicle number '001' actually indicates this as the Regimental Commanders vehicle not a Battalion, if so it would be prefixed by a Roman numeral eg I, II

 

One great source of reference straight of the bat is ; Panzer Colours II, Markings of the German Army Panzer Forces 1939-45 by Bruce Culver. :good:

Thanks for the clarification  FurphyForum
The information is taken from the Osprey book "The middle car Panzer III"

:salute:

 

PD  Panzer Color II book I have it from my time of models

Thank you for your work in creating this skin as well as sharing it.  On a related note and given my interest in photography, I have learned to work with images via photo editor software.  As such, I would like to try my hand at creating skins.  Are you aware of any tutorials on the subject?  Thank you in advance.

Hi photog95661
I use Photoshop to paint masks and tutorials about masks that I don't know.
In the forums there is a tutorial on GIMP.
I started making masks without having any idea how to do it with Photoshop, and with many tests and errors, in fact, before BOS I didn't paint masks.
If you know the program or know how it works, you have enough to get started and the templates provided by ICDP and others help a lot in doing them, they are very well made and updated.
I'm sorry, I can't help anymore.

I think Russian language written on the sides of Russian tanks and planes to the Western eye, looks pretty cool and certainly unique.
