Default [REL] IXD2 Camaleon M

Fellow Keluns:
Here I present you my newest skin: The IXD2 "Camaleon M"
The "M" in the name is for Mush Martin, since he is the one who put the idea of this one in my head. Thanks a lot Mush, I hope you like it.!!! (sorry for the delay )
I also would like to thank my good friend SWCowboy, who is practically teaching me tricks and cool stuff with Photoshop. i hope to eventually make skins with the quality that SWCobwboy has in all his skins.
Enjoy!!





CapZap

:hmm: Tempted, very tempted here... that looks great, man!

Wonder if you know if (any) camo was used on (any) boats sent to the far east?

When this captain got his U-181 back from CapZap's shipyard he thought the same.
However, that illusion was lost before he was half way across the Biscaya-gulf


But the skin still rocks!

The Original intention of the Skin suggestion is not as a more
effective camoflauge against AI in order to do that you would
have to modify the AI at the same time you put the skin in
in order to simulate the effect.
( A Very Good Idea for AI skins Nudge Nudge Wink Wink Capzap)

But the Chameleon M is actually intended as Camoflauge against
Human eyes in MP

I wanted it because It was starting to look like I might have to
have a duel in shIII in response to certain youthful kaleun.
and the concept of Low Viz against human eyes is what
we were going for here.


Where's the D/L hiding?

If it's against human eyes, why did you leave the guns black? :hmm:

The more I stare at the skin, the more I like it. Shame I can't play MP. If not the uniforms and guns this boat would be simply invisible!

That can be easily fixed... I will upload shortly guns with smilar camo... as for the uniforms, well, there is nothing to do about it, unless our good Maestro Venatore has something hidden in his sleeves...
Oh, sorry, about the link, just click on my sig and register at BtS... all the skins made by SWCowboy, Koondawg, yamato and mine are there...!
CapZap


UPDATE!!!!
Abd von Mumit, thank you very much for pointing out the fact that the guns were preventing the sub of blending completely.
I've made a small modification and now you can have the full camo version, that includes the guns in camo pattern, and as you can see the effect is complete.
Also, notice that using Venatore's great "Elite U-boat Uniform - Blue" helps matching the crew with this skin.
The name if this new version is "CapZap IXD2 Camaleon M2" and I did it as a different skin because some people like the black guns while others like the camo version.
So, there is always a way to have everybody happy.






Enjoy!!
CapZap

EDIT: for those who register to download the skins and can´t find the d/l link, please visit the "Technical Support and Q/A" section, there is a sticky with a complete explanation on how to lay your hands on the skins and other mods you might want.
