Some introduction is probably in order.  I am Blackhawk1947 on the EU server, but my play there is limited.  I am arasgrandpa on the NA server which is my primary.  I have been modding WG games for awhile, mostly World of Tanks and have started working with World of Warplanes lately. I am on the NA and EU forums as well as my website listed in the signature below. I welcome comments and suggestions.

Thanks

For custom skins, I use various models to start with these include:

  • The skins in WoWP that are not normally shown. Premium, Chrome, or others and replace the normal skins (hangar, base, winter, marine, and woodland)
  • Add decals and text, including names and pinups
  • Take skins from the older versions and rework them into HD for latest version
  • Use the base skins and create my own colors, camo, and decals
  • Some are historical skins based on artwork of the various planes

To save time and effort, I am posting the imgur album for screen shots of some of the skins.Downloads linked to each plane on Yandex Disk or in the planes under each nation folder.

 

High Gloss Skins

 

These are shown with the HiGloss addition to the download file. <aircraft>_HiGloss.zip  If you want the metal skin, but not high gloss, then delete the <aircraft>_SPM.dds file and if will be less glossy.

Most of the High Gloss use the same pattern with colors varying according to season:

  • Hangar (<aircraft>_hangar.dds) Red/Maroon
  • Winter (<aircraft>_snow.dds) Baby Blue
  • Marine (<aircraft>_marine.dds) Dark Blue
  • Summer (<aircraft>_woodland.dds) Olive Drab/Dark Green
  • Base (<aircraft>_base.dds) Black/Maroon

 

So, look through the imgur gallery, if you find one you like, then go to the link above to download.

To install: Copy/move the vehicles directory in the zip file to the res_mods/version>/ folder

Gun Metal Gray High Gloss Skins

 

This skins are also in the download folder listed above.  The have the extension _GM added to the aircraft file name.  To get the gun metal finish, you must include the xml file in the script folder.  The gun metal finish is a reflection setting in the <plane>.xml file. If you don't want it to be gun metal gray delete the file for that plane in the scripts folder. The skin will then be shiny metal instead. To get additional gun metal skins and save upload space, download the HiGloss skin of your choice, then go into the XML_Files directory for the link above and download the <aircraft>_GM_xml.zip file.  Copy/move the scripts directory from the archive (zip) to the res_mods/<version>/ directory.  Restart game.

I have done the following skins, but since I do not own these aircraft I can not test them.  If you own one of these and want to test the skins, please do so.  If you could PM me a few iimages of the skins, it would be greatly appreciated.  If they are OK, will add them to the OP listing.

This mod works with or without Sonya_ferrari's hangar mod, but its best with it. That mod is on the NA forum's here Goes with new hangar and other hangars in the mod.

 

I call it "Lipstick on a pig".  Actually it just dresses up the hangar scenery for the new hurrican hangar. If you are using this hangar it also dresses up the other hangars.  I have repainted the objects shown on the hangar scene to make them more visible or to make them more realistic.

  • All scenery planes use Hawkeye's historic skins
  • Added camo to tents, etc
  • Retouched the hangar paint, brick, etc
  • enhanced other scenery objects
