Its been over a month since my last update. Since the first news of the Australian Centurion was "leaked". Since thing Ive been hard ard work, planning and finally remodeling the Mk. 5/1. And shes ready tonight. This is 'Talisman', a British Centurion Mk. 5/1 LR (Long Range).
She gains a few extra bits, including her proper sideskirts. .50 caliber machine guns for the TC and loader. Proper headlights. And the ever important tea kettle. You can find 'Talisman' linked above, alongside the rest of the remodels in the 'World of Tanks' menu.
More importantly, what does this mean for the other Centurions? Eventually, all of my Centurions, barring 'Dreadnought' will get the improved mantlet canvas. 'Victoria', 'Thunderbolt' and 'Dreadnought' will probably get the LR fuel tank, rather than improvised tank they currently have. These changes will trickle out over the coming months, alongside other remodels (I current have a Tiger I and Firefly remodel in the planning stages).
Thats all for now. Take care, and see you on the battlefield.
A couple of new updates today.
The first is a new remodel, for one of the most stand out tanks Ive played in a while: the T-44-100. Named 'Hunter' this updated T-44-100 includes a new gun, some spiffy headlights, a larger gun for the TC, improved vision devices a log and an accordian!
As you can see it also fully supports the paint system as well.
The other update is a significant change to the Strv 81-Mk. 5. By significant I mean I've repainted her in British Tan. She will now be known as the Centurion Mk. 5 'Victoria'. Like any British lady its important to appear your best, so theres also an addon that readds the sideskirts back to the tank.
For those of you who prefer the Swedish green dont update, nothing has changed. If you want the side skirts, you can just install the addon and everything should work in place, even if youre keeping the Swedish green.
I also pushed a minor update through for 'Thunderbolt', but it was just the removal of a superfluous texture file, nothing changed with the model itself.
On the World of Warship's front I pushed an update for the MS22 camo pack that updated the pack for changes made to the camouflages.xml in 0.7.3. Please update if youre experencing issues with camos in the game.
And how about that new Centurion premium? Im pretty excited to get a Mk. 5/1 LR Centurion from the RAAC. Cant wait. My 'Thunderbolt' crew hates the 4202. Expect to see model updates when that comes out as well, as it adds some nicer mantlet canvas and a better fuel tank.
Whats this? Another update so soon after the last one? What could possibly be so important that it requires another update this soon?
The first is that Ive had to remove the fuel tank from the Mk. 5 Strv 81 as the texture wasnt loading properly and I couldnt fix it. So thats unfortunate. But with bad news theres normally good news:
A new remodel is joining the family.
Welp, tonight is the big night... tomorrow is the release of world of tanks version 1.0.
What does this mean for you, lovely remodel user? Updates. Lots of updates! Fear not, all of the remodels that you love have likely already been updated. If you are getting your remodels from my GitHub, go on and redownload them after 1.0 release tomorrow. If you get my remodels from Aslain's ModPack, I will be contacting him tonight and letting him know that all of my models are updated so he can add them.
If its not on that list, it hasnt received an update. If there are issues with remodels (that is to say stuff that physically changes the model of a tank, not the skin), and I need to update it, please let me know.

Hey guys, its been a while since I posted something here, huh?
Ive been keeping busy working on some stuff, but 9.22 really took the wind out of my sail with regards to WoT, and as a result Ive been playing quite a lot of World of Warships. I even have a special camo pack out fro World of Warships, for those of you who may miss the old CBT US Navy textures. You can find that here along with a full album of preview images just below.
So if you play World of Warships go on and download that pack if you want all the permanant camos int he game to resemble the old CBT textures.
That out of the way, 1.0 has the potential to reinvigorate my interest in World of Tanks. Since Ive been keeping an eye on the changes to the engine Ive already pushed a set of changes live that will ensure that my remodels function correctly in 1.0 as you can see:
These changes shouldnt affect anything if they are installed in the current version of World of Tanks but will ensure proper functionality in 1.0.
Beyond that Ive also pushed two further updates, one to the IS-7 with raised machine gun and the other to Fireball.
The IS-7 turret now has proper support for the customization system introduced in 9.21 (only about a month late, I know). So thats nice.
Fireball is a bit more in depth though. Using the same feature that Bullpup uses, if you have a completely stock Centurion you will see the stock Mk. 1 hull. Upgrading the turret to the Mk. 3 turret will give you the upgraded hull, as shown below:
(Stock Centurion shown with FastestClassic's UK Light Olive skin pack).
I still dont know why WG isnt making use of this feature thats literally built into their game... but there you go.
Anyway... thats really it for now... nothing upcoming right now. If 1.0 really does reinvigorate my interest for WoT then projects will start back up again, but right now, I got nothin'.
