Exclamation Black Balao

Ive started two seperate us campaigns and in both of them i went from a gato class submarine to the uss balao. But out of reasons the uss balao is black and very rusty. Same goes for any new campiagn when i select balao in 1944. is this normal or does this change bc i really apreciate that gray look. Or is it a bug?


thx for any help

In stock, you have in the Roster for the Balao:
[Texture 1]
TextureName=data/Submarine/NSS_Balao/NSS_Balao_T01.tga
LightmapTextureName=data/Submarine/NSS_Balao/NSS_Balao_O01.tga
StartDate=19380101
EndDate=19440504
Frequency=1

[Texture 2]
TextureName=data/Submarine/NSS_Balao/NSS_Balao_T02.tga
LightmapTextureName=data/Submarine/NSS_Balao/NSS_Balao_O01.tga
StartDate=19440505
EndDate=19990711
Frequency=1
T01 is dark and rusty. T02 is a measure 32 scheme, light grey sides, dark top. Why all the rust, especially on a "new" boat with Measure 9 is beyond imagination. My dad during WWII claims that his hand had a paint brush in it more than a mop... Choose the boat after 05 May, 1944, and it should be light grey... maybe...
