Hopefully, you already can mod your files. If not, click here.

*You can also use Photoshop. I am poor so I use free photo editing apps*

My two apps: DXTBmp and Paint.NET (Google it)

First, I go to  *Windows10 users go to (partition\windowsapps\(blitz)* *mac just goes to blitz*

(blitz)\data\3D\Tanks\(choose nation)\images and choose your desired tank.

Example, I want the su-152. File location: data\3D\Tanks\ussr\images\su-152.dx11

*File must end in .dx11 and not .tex

Open this file in DXTBmp and save it as a BMP file. 

Now, close DXTBmp and open up Paint.NET. You may edit this however you want. I put numbers on separate places to find out which plate goes where. Once you are done, select save as... and select where you first got the file. **MUST SAVE AS A DDS FILE* For our su-152, it is  data\3D\Tanks\ussr\images\su-152.dx11. It will ask you if you would like to replace image. Select yes and open up your game. This also works if your game is open, just select a different tank and re-select the modded tank. Purple tanks mean you messed up, and sometimes your skin may be upside down. Do not be disappointed, keep trying and Mod on!

EDIT: LIBRARY IS UP! Please submit any skins you feel are worthy. The more, the better. 

EDIT! VIDEO IS ALSO UP!

I am thinking of making a place where we as a community could share our creations. Quote this if you want to make it happen.

That would be cool. As for now, me, Maddox, and another hand full of testers are discussing mod related things on discord. https://madwotbmod.wordpress.com/

All just know if you use mods and in the future you lose items or something weird happens to your account WG will no longer help as you have altered there coding. Good idea but just a heads up.

Do you have aim reticle skins?  Would kill for cross hairs instead of carrot triangle.
It is possible to commit no mistakes and still lose. That is not a weakness; that is life.

I'm trying to do some skins on my Mac with Photoshop elements.  I have a .dds Plugin and when I save my tank ors Purple as you said it might.  I've tried different rotations, no go.  Could it be a version issue?  When I go to save Photoshop asks what version of ddd.

 

     

 

 

Also, if I paint my Leo, will ALL leo's in Battle look like me?  But only Too me?

Ideas?

War. War never changes.
The Romans waged war to gather slaves and wealth. Spain built an empire from its lust for gold and territory. Hitler shaped a battered Germany into an economic superpower.
But war never changes.
