Icon12 Tutorial to add an emblem on Wise's turms

Hi,

I would like to explain you how it is possible to add a detailed emblem on the turms of U-boats made by Wise (http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=212557).

The method consists in adding the emblem directly on the turm's texture. For this, I use Paint.net, but any software using layers can do the job.

The mod contains the turms' textures of Wise turms. You can also download other textures here : ftp://Maik:Woelfe@hartmuthaas.no-ip....0by%20WISE).7z

You can find nice and historical emblems textures here : ftp://Maik:Woelfe@hartmuthaas.no-ip....YMODS/CONUS00/

My mod contains an example with the blue fish emblem.


- TURM-VIIA.tga is for 7b1 turm

- TURM-VIIB.tga is for 7b2 turm

- TURM-VIIC.tga is for 7c1 turm


1. Open the turm's texture of your choice : TURM-VIIA.tga, TURM-VIIB.tga or TURM-VIIC.tga

2. Resize it in order the size is 2048 x 2048 pixels

3. Add a new layer (open the layers window)

4. Open my mask and paste it in this new layer : the black zones corresponds to the location of the emblem (starboard, middle and port side). On the picture, you can see where they are on the turm.



5. Add a new layer and paste your emblem on the black zones.

6. Delete the first layer (containing the black zones), and merge the second one (emblems) with the turm's texture (background).

7. Save the modified tga file.

8. Activate the mod with JSGME after Wise mods.

DONE

I think you can only with type 7b in WAC 5.01

Because the file structure is only for Compilation 2,in WAC 5.01
only turm VIIb.dat is compatible with Compilation 2

Not that it could be done for other types

If we talk about emblems ?
