Default U-51 and historically correct U-69 Tower Emblem for TWoS

Hi,

today I released a merge of my two graphic mods U-51 tower skin "Atje and Bambo" (https://www.subsim.com/radioroom/dow...o=file&id=5757) and historically correct tower skin of U-69 (https://www.subsim.com/radioroom/dow...o=file&id=5871) for TWoS.

U-51 tower skin "Atje and Bambo" is in this release not an exchange of a present skin. It is a new one to choise in upgrade menu of Type VIIB. The emblem "Atje and Bambo" can be also used just as tower emblem only.

The download can be found here: https://www.subsim.com/radioroom/dow...o=file&id=5876

I change next the skin the following files and add this lines:

At the moment I have to change only two things in future for U-51:
1. exception to use U-51 tower skin for standard tower of Type VIIB (without flag gun)
2. working preview image in upgrade window

I hope someone can help me to do this two things.

v1.1 - add my mod of historically correct flags of Tower Emblem of U-69
v1.2 - add preview picture for U-51 in upgrade screen

I'm thinking about creating more historical submarine skins for TWoS, like U-407:





What is your opinion about this and is it worth the effort?
