Update November 26th, 2018 for version 0.7.11.1

 

Since early September of 2017, I've been making skins with an anime theme to them.  As the skins started to pile up, I realized it would be better if I segmented them by nation before the main thread got out of control.  In early November I started on a ship bundle, with the intention of releasing it on the forums as a Christmas present.  Then word broke that the new, Pan-Asian destroyer line was being released.  I shifted gears immediately, and decided the present would take the form of the entire destroyer line completed.  It was a success and it became one of my more popular downloads.  I'm posting it for the first time on the Asia forums, to go along with the others threads I've been starting here.  I'll post the download link below with the release of 7.5, and as I finish the last 2 remaining ships in the tech tree, I'll update this thread accordingly.

If you want to see the latest changes to my mods, or just take a peek on what I'm currently working on, you can join the growing community on my discord server:  https://discord.gg/z58ByKX

 

There's also my Twitch account if I feel like streaming the development in real-time:  https://www.twitch.tv/compassr0se

 



 

Pan-Asia Ship Bundle Zip file:  http://www.mediafire.com/file/ge7btbs8zm26fup/CR_ShipBundle_PanAsia.zip/file

  • Contains the ships themselves that I've completed
  • All textures related to the Pan-Asia tech tree.  From catapults to range finders, they're all in there.
  • All ship preview icons for the Pan-Asia tech tree

**  Make sure to unzip the file directly to the res_mods\0.7.11.1 directory

Also, after the 0.7.9.0 update, it is better to start with a blank res_mods\0.7.11.1 folder as the changes to the file structure on the client end were significant.  Old mods and ship textures will likely crash your client.

Below is a running list of ships I've completed, and things I've started to work on.  As I've done since the beginning, I'll keep this original post updated as frequently as I can, so you can use it as a one-stop shop for all the work I've done.  If you're interested in pics, then by all means comb through the thread and have a closer look.

If you have a favorite ship you want skinned, or a particular anime you want represented then don't hesitate to post your request.

When I started modding the Pan-Asia tech tree I started from the top down.  It wasn't until later that I reached the Chengan as a project and by that time I was feeling a bit mischievous.  So I made light of the fact it's a tier 1 ship and you're probably only going to be in it for a couple of battles.  It feels a little awkward to start off the Pan-Asian tech tree with an anime entitled 'Tokyo Ravens'.  But it had dragons, and dragons was what I was looking for.

Since a lot of the Pan-Asian destroyers in this tech tree were ships from other nations, it was a chance to go to the 'Girls Frontline' well as often as I could.  The only one with a German theme to it was the Long Jiang, a V-25 clone.  So I decided to use a montage of lesser-popular German firearms to represent the ship.  I have yet to transfer this skin over to the V-25 but it's on my to-do list.

The Phra Ruang was actually the last destroyer in the line I finished, so I was beginning to run out of background art and character selections.  She ended up being a montage of a lot of the Chinese rifle girls you see on the Hisen in their New Year's alt outfits.  As for the Phra Ruang, she got hit hard with the cherry blossom bat.

Just finding Chinese anime characters to use as the central theme was a chore.  But one that immediately came to mind was Lingyin Huang from 'Infinite Stratos'.  The series itself is one of those rare collections that features a characters from a variety of nations.  It wasn't the last time I would go to this series for ideas.  The fact that Lingyin's IS machine is called 'Shen Long' was the last bit I needed in selecting which destroyer to put her on.  Shenyang is close enough.

I didn't know much about the 'Girls Frontline' characters before I started the preliminary work on the skins, but I quickly began to discover the ones that were popular based on the amount of fan art I was coming across.  Type  79 was one that I noticed was under the radar.  Didn't have a lot of art, and had the quirky feature of a cybernetic right arm.  But for some reason she became a personal favorite, so I decided to build the Jianwei around her and make a cyberpunk-style Chinatown theme to bring it all together.

With the Fushun as a Gnevny clone it was time to bring in a Russian rifle from 'Girls Frontline' again.  This time it was SV-98, my favorite rifle from the Russian character list.  However this is before the Fushun from 'Azur Lane' was introduced.  In the future, SV-98 might move to the Gnevny where she really belongs, vacating a spot for the Fushun herself.

As a fan of the Civilization series, I recognized the name Gadjah Mada right away.  I wanted to give it an Indonesia theme right away, and load it up with as many Civilization references that I could find.  I also chose FNC from 'Girls Frontline' as the main character, as the FNC is used extensively by the Indonesian Armed Forces.  I had a lot of fun with it, and I get a good laugh every time I catch a glimpse of the broadside.

With the Lo Yang being a Benson-class American destroyer I went back in search of a fitting character.  As luck would have it, about that time Laffey from 'Azur Lane' received a New Year's alt costume.  It was perfect timing, so another Chinese New Year theme went down on the hull.

With the Tier 9 and 10 ships already decided on, I wanted a high-tier representative for a Chinese New Year celebration-style theme.  So the Hsienyang was next in line, and there were plenty of 'Girls Frontline' characters with New Year's alt outfits.  I grabbed all the Chinese characters and in they went.  Add some fireworks and some lanterns and we had ourselves a party.

Without knowing why I locked onto Kirin Toudou as a candidate for the Chung Mu.  I wanted her on a destroyer, and I also wanted to start tackling the new line of destroyers on the horizon.  So while she went to the Chung Mu, the November announcement about their release kicked the rest of the project into high gear, and it became a Christmas present of sorts to the community.

With the Yueyang being an Allen M. Summer class American destroyer, I went to the American handgun girls from 'Girls Frontline'  The two that jumped out right away was the Mk23 and Grizzly MkV.  Since Mk23 had the red/white/blue style American outfit I chose her for the Gearing.  That left Grizzly for the Yueyang.  Turned out to be a perfect pairing.

Changelog for 0.7.10.0

 

  • No changes or additions to the ships themselves, but checked for patch compliance.  0.7.10.0 ready.

 

For those that can't get enough anime skins, I recommend joining our discord that is linked at the start of the thread.  I currently have ship bundles for Germany, Japan, and Russia that aren't available here in the forums.  The bundles don't contain many ships (yet) but they do feature some of my latest work.
