Also the british vanilla skin seems to be missing or is that one identical to the olive drab?

I checked it out. It is not the same but quite similar. Unfortunately there are no preview images of those vanilla skins in the game files. So I have to create some myself. :S

Great job! Thanks a lot. :D

Does anyone know if those war paint winner skins somehow also change the model? I just wonder why on the german Three-Colour Summer Camouflage skin the PzIV has those mesh Schürzen while on the Winter Frost skin he has solid Schürzen and why the Scout car SdkfZ has a radio antenna ring and other little extras that the summer skin doesn't have.

Can´t say if this works with the integrated War Paint Winner skins, especially Winter Variants. Regarding Starbuck´s skins, I tested his free workshop Three-Colour Summer Camouflage. There are no mesh skirts on the PIV at Vet2. But you get mesh skirts on the StuG G, StuG E and PIV at Vet2 if you use his free skin Assorted German Camouflage(OKW/Wehrmacht).

Skins cannot really change the geometry, but they can change transparency. The basic texture maps that are painted include diffuse color, specularity, gloss, bump, and alpha. I expect that 99% of skins don't change the bump and alpha maps, but by carefully painting these you can create the effect of an open mesh like the ones on the side skirts pictured above. Removing a specific piece of geometry by painting the map to make it transparent is pretty easy.

Correct. Simply find the part of the model on the diffuse map you want to make "disappear", then paint it black in the alpha map. Pretty easy way to create the mesh side skirts, remove track guards, remove wheel on side of Hetzer, etc...

I'm pretty sure I had included the mesh skirts for the curated skin pack. However, I think Relic removed them unfortunately for the final release.

Btw, great job on the database CasTroy. Very helpful.

While searching for information about CoH2 vehicle skins on the CoH2.org forums I found various threads with different details on this subject. So I decided to summarize these information in one recent thread.


okwokw The Oberkommando West okwokw


Summer:


From February 1943 to August 1944 the German factory standard vehicle skin was overall in "Dunkelgelb". On August 19th, 1944 the German High Command (OKH) ordered their manufacturers to combine the colors "Dunkelgelb", "Olivgrün" and "Rotbraun" simplyfying the camouflage. This factory standard three color skin was later known as the famous "Hinterhaltsmuster".




Tanks were given the Panzergrau coat during production in 1940 in order to save paint, but this practice was discontinued in 1943. Since the vehicles were never to be repainted, in subsequent years many camouflage variants were made by rubbing camouflage paste over the base grey.




Brown and green dapple over Khaki was so effective at blending in with undergrowth that vehicles that bore the pattern were sometimes further adorned with leaves and shrubbery to give them the appearance of heavy follage.



Dark and khaki was a simple and effective scheme suited for concealment
against golden grasslands.



White, jagged stripes over brown proved to be very effective concealment when the Germans launched their surprise counteroffensive through the densely forested Ardennes in December, 1944.

usfusf The U.S. Forces usfusf


Summer:


With the beginning of the war for the U.S.A. in 1941 most equipment of the U.S. Army was painted in U.S. Federal Factory-Standard Olive Drab. Ironically the used Olive Drab was not standardized in its brightness until 1950 so various variations of dark and bright Olive Drab overall skins existed.




The large horizontal stripe served the purpose of breaking the lines of the vehicles silhouette. Crews used whatever was available in the field and hand applied to suit the climate and locale.



The US army did not use standardized camouflage schemes. Most patterns were unique to the unit or even the crew the vehicle belonged to, usually tailored for the tank at hand.




Stark black and white borders enhance the contrast of the main camouflage colors.



This improvised pattern was necessitated by the sporadic snow falls that plagued the Battle of the Bulge. White was partially applied over top of factory painted green to better blend with the snow-engulfed woodlands.

ostheerostheer The Wehrmacht ostheerostheer


Summer:


In 1943 the German High Command (OKH) decided to change the factory standard gray into "Dunkelgelb". New vehicles were camouflaged by their crews with additional colors dependent on local requirements.




Tanks were given the Panzergrau coat during production in 1940 in order to save paint, but this practice was discontinued in 1943. Since the vehicles were never to be repainted, in subsequent years many camouflage variants were made by rubbing camouflage paste over the base grey.




Nearly endless varieties of camouflage were applied in every German
armoured unit based on local requirements.




German tanks were usually sent to their units in the base factory "Dunkelgelb" with additional colors in paste form to be applied to suit specific local requirements. Variations are epic in quantity.




After almost endless variations of official techniques German armored vehicle camouflage
returned to hard edges and multiple colors.




Also called Hinterhalt-tarnung, the ambush patter hid vehicles in the
dappled light under trees.




During the 1942 assault into the Caucasus, Army Group South favored
a mottled brown and green pattern.




Spraying brownish sand color over the factory standard gray made for quickly applied but effective camouflage during the assault on Voronezh.




Late in the war, many German vehicles were delivered from the factory with yellow-brown sprayed in stripes over the raw red-brown primer in basic attempt at camouflage.

The German Eighth Army painted whitewash over the green camouflage of its vehicles as the battle for Stalingrad carried on into winter.



Hand painted whitewash or lime wash paint was applied with brushes or rags.



Most winter camouflage schemes were hand applied in the field
with whatever implements were on hand.



Based on the ambush pattern, winter versions swapped the warmer
summer colors for harsh greys and whites.

sovietssoviets The Soviet Union sovietssoviets


Summer:


At the beginning of the war in 1941 the soviet standard camouflage sheme was a overall olive drab. During the war the Red Army experimented with multiple camouflage patterns.




The lighter green and almost orange of the contrasting color suited the more
arid conditions of the central front.



The Karelian front is an area of forest and sandy soil north of Leningrad where the Soviets and Finns fought themeselves to a stalemate. These colors reflect those conditions.



Bold stripes of sand-colored paint were slathered over factory-standard olive paint to create a makeshift camouflage pattern during the defense of the Caucasus.


In the wake of Operation Uranus, the resurgent Red Army experimented with many camouflage patterns, including this two-tone olive-and-sand pattern.



Khaki, sand, and light brown colors camouflage well against foliage baked
in the late summer and early fall heat.



Elaborate camouflage like this three color variant take time to paint and slow down production. And time was a luxury the Soviets ran out of in 1941 and 1942.



Four color camouflage variants appeared during the big Soviet summer offensives of 1944.



This rare improvised pattern had simple painted branches applied by hand over the standard winter white paint. Some crews even painted the rear parts of hatches and sights red which made it look rather festive.


Winter:

At the beginning of the war in 1941 the soviet standard camouflage sheme was a overall olive drab. During the war the Red Army experimented with multiple camouflage patterns.




Big blocks of contrasting color are dramatic, but serve to diminish a vehicles silhouette.



The unique cobblestone pattern helped break up the silhouette of the vehicle.


Most winter camouflage was roughly applied by hand. The goal was not to completely cover the vehicle, as a pure white would stand out dramatically against darker backgrounds.



Chemically treated washable white paint over factory standard olive green helped create the stark bi-tonal winter livery used by the Red Guards.

The British Forces

Summer:

Since many vehicles were being supplied by the US, part of the rationale to adopt Olive Drab was to reduce the need to repaint before deployment.



Black was painted over the factory colors in this manner as a countermeasure to aerial reconnaissance. The style was often referred to by the name of a famous rodent due to the orientation of the spots.




Primarily used from 1939 until 1943; this basic shade was used on vehicles in service in the Middle East and North Africa. It was often used in combination with other shades when creating disruptive patterns.




Composed of disruptive diagonal lines painted across the vehicle in a spliter pattern. The blue-ish hue was actually silver grey paint faded from the desert sun.

In 1943 the German High Command (OKH) decided to change the factory standard gray into "Dunkelgelb". New vehicles were camouflaged by their crews with additional colors dependent on local requirements.



Tanks were given the Panzergrau coat during production in 1940 in order to save paint, but this practice was discontinued in 1943. Since the vehicles were never to be repainted, in subsequent years many camouflage variants were made by rubbing camouflage paste over the base grey.



The German Eighth Army painted whitewash over the green camouflage of its vehicles as the battle for Stalingrad carried on into winter.



Hand painted whitewash or lime wash paint was applied with brushes or rags.



Most winter camouflage schemes were hand applied in the field
with whatever implements were on hand.



Based on the ambush pattern, winter versions swapped the warmer
summer colors for harsh greys and whites.



Nearly endless varieties of camouflage were applied in every German
armoured unit based on local requirements.



German tanks were usually sent to their units in the base factory "Dunkelgelb" with additional colors in paste form to be applied to suit specific local requirements. Variations are epic in quantity.



After almost endless variations of official techniques German armored vehicle camouflage
returned to hard edges and multiple colors.



Also called Hinterhalt-tarnung, the ambush patter hid vehicles in the
dappled light under trees.



During the 1942 assault into the Caucasus, Army Group South favored
a mottled brown and green pattern.



Spraying brownish sand color over the factory standard gray made for quickly applied but effective camouflage during the assault on Voronezh.



Late in the war, many German vehicles were delivered from the factory with yellow-brown sprayed in stripes over the raw red-brown primer in basic attempt at camouflage.

Summer:


At the beginning of the war in 1941 the soviet standard camouflage sheme was a overall olive drab. During the war the Red Army experimented with multiple camouflage patterns.




The lighter green and almost orange of the contrasting color suited the more
arid conditions of the central front.



The Karelian front is an area of forest and sandy soil north of Leningrad where the Soviets and Finns fought themeselves to a stalemate. These colors reflect those conditions.



Bold stripes of sand-colored paint were slathered over factory-standard olive paint to create a makeshift camouflage pattern during the defense of the Caucasus.


In the wake of Operation Uranus, the resurgent Red Army experimented with many camouflage patterns, including this two-tone olive-and-sand pattern.



Khaki, sand, and light brown colors camouflage well against foliage baked
in the late summer and early fall heat.



Elaborate camouflage like this three color variant take time to paint and slow down production. And time was a luxury the Soviets ran out of in 1941 and 1942.



Four color camouflage variants appeared during the big Soviet summer offensives of 1944.



This rare improvised pattern had simple painted branches applied by hand over the standard winter white paint. Some crews even painted the rear parts of hatches and sights red which made it look rather festive.

Winter:

At the beginning of the war in 1941 the soviet standard camouflage sheme was a overall olive drab. During the war the Red Army experimented with multiple camouflage patterns.




Big blocks of contrasting color are dramatic, but serve to diminish a vehicles silhouette.



The unique cobblestone pattern helped break up the silhouette of the vehicle.


Most winter camouflage was roughly applied by hand. The goal was not to completely cover the vehicle, as a pure white would stand out dramatically against darker backgrounds.



Chemically treated washable white paint over factory standard olive green helped create the stark bi-tonal winter livery used by the Red Guards.

The British Forces

Summer:

Since many vehicles were being supplied by the US, part of the rationale to adopt Olive Drab was to reduce the need to repaint before deployment.



Black was painted over the factory colors in this manner as a countermeasure to aerial reconnaissance. The style was often referred to by the name of a famous rodent due to the orientation of the spots.




Primarily used from 1939 until 1943; this basic shade was used on vehicles in service in the Middle East and North Africa. It was often used in combination with other shades when creating disruptive patterns.




Composed of disruptive diagonal lines painted across the vehicle in a spliter pattern. The blue-ish hue was actually silver grey paint faded from the desert sun.
