I wanted to make this post yesterday, but I wouldnt have had anything to link you to because nothing had yet been approved on WGMods. However things are now. So the final four permaskin removals have been transitioned to .wotmod:
I also pushed a small update to Thunderbolt, which resolves an issue with the left chassis texture being missing. It was a minor issue and you may not have even noticed it, but its fixed now. The last mod to make the conversion to .wotmod will be the M48A1 Restoration, but Im going to need to work on getting that all working with the cosmetic paint system before it does, so that may take some time.
Finally, Ive retired several of my miscelanious skins. This includes:
Thats it for now!
Hmmm... I guess it has. Well Ive not been sitting around doing nothing, I can assure you.
Ive got a new remodel for you, as well as updates to 3 previous remodels for patch 1.1
First up is the new arrival: the AMX 30 'Intrepid':
'Intrepid' takes bits and pieces from the AMX 30 B and the AMX Canon d'Assault 105 and combines them onto one of the best tier 9 medium platforms in the game currently. I fell in love with the AMX 30 prot fromt he irst battle, and its pretty close to the top of my favourite tanks list, so I thought it was time to give her a proper remodel. She fully supports update 1.1's addition of the cosmetic paints to tier 9 tanks out of the box. Maybe one day I'll move on to the AMX 30 B, but not any time soon. (Which is too bad, because I quite liek the 30 B whenever I play it on the test server).
Anyway, speaking of cosmetic paints 3 old remodels have been updated to support the system:
Anyway, as of this post, no other old mods have been moved into .wotmods, but I intend to do that later today, so expect another post sometime tonight (8/29/18), with an update on those, but I believe the last 3 permaskin removals will make the conversion (along with a fixes to 2 of them),and I will probably move the Classic T71 Restoration and M48A1 Restoration over as well, (though the latter depends on if I can get it working well with the cosmetic paint system, if not it wont). After that, Im not sure... I have some ideas... but nothing too concrete yet.
As for my remodel update cycle, I intend to move to a monthly-ish publishing schedule following Wargamings updates with World of Tanks. That means posts on the blog will show up right around each new patch (if theres anything for me to announce AND barring any major updates I feel the need to push out). Similarly, you may not see version numbers change on WGMods immediately following a new patch. Rest assured that unless something major changes, its very likely that all of my remodels and permaskin removals WILL work in the latest version of World of Tanks, even if the version number on WGMods is out of date.
Oh yea... still on my quest to somehow acquire an ISU-130. No luck yet. Will persevere... but beyond creating video content for WG (of which I dont think I have the skill nor the personality) I may have set an impossible goal for myself... Im pretty good at that actually...
Anyway, thats all for now. Keep an eye out for that post detailing the next batch of .wotmod conversions later today.
