Updated 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.  With the release of 0.7.5 on the horizon, I wanted to start by re-posting the skins I've done for the UK tech tree.  I'll post the download link below with the release of 7.5, and as I continue to make skins for the UK line I'll continually update the thread.

 

You can follow me, as well as @SwedishFox on our discord server:  https://discord.gg/z58ByKX

 

UK Ship Bundle Zip file:  http://www.mediafire.com/file/nh7csg98jjsz05b/CR_ShipBundle_UK.zip/file

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

Also, with the 0.7.9.0 update and beyond, 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.

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

 

Alternative Texture file:    http://www.mediafire.com/file/lvh6zn8fh3qwf4n/CR_Alternative_Textures_UK.zip/file

  • In cases where multiple ships share a common main gun texture, I've provided alternatives that better match the ships involved.  You can swap them according to your personal preference.

 

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.

British Battleship Line

 

Originally when I started to dive into the modding arena it was strictly to work with the new British Battleship line.  Little did I know the whole experience would take on a life of its own.  I started branching out into other tech trees and before I knew it I was enjoying the whole creative process.  Enjoy.

 

Rider for the Bellerophon was actually suggested by a user on the NA forums.  I'm a fan of the Fate series, but I didn't know that Rider's ultimate attack from one of the games was called the 'Bellerophon'.  It sold me on it instantly, as I was looking for an excuse to use Rider for a ship.

The Orion was the second ship to get the 'Infinite Stratos' treatment, and there are 2 more on the way.  At first I had reservations about going to the same anime series multiple time, but ultimately my guiding principle became 'if she's cute enough to go on a ship, end of story.'  The Orion was the last British battleship left to do, and Cecilia was still on the board anyway.  The last British character I had on my very short list of British anime characters.

The Iron Duke was the very first ship that I skinned, and was made at the time I was following the 'Princess Principal' anime series.  The series became the subject for the ship.  Ange became my forum avatar.  The rest is history.  The ship has gone through a 2nd version already, and when time permits I may give her a 3rd overhaul.  The ship itself is a reminder of how I started out, and I use it as a bookend to figure out how far I've come as a modder.

Satellizer from 'Freezing' was one of the easier characters to pair up with a ship.  Given she's half British, and her nickname is 'The Untouchable Queen' she went right to the Queen Elizabeth.  'Freezing', is another one of those anime series with representatives from various nations.  You may see other ships spring up with a similar theme to them.

While trying to decide which character I wanted on the KGV, I stumbled upon an article involving J.R.R. Tolkien.  During his time as a military cadet, he participated in the coronation of King George V.  I decided the KGV had to have a fantasy-style theme to it, and that meant Grimgar.  In the future I may look at an Azur Lane alternative.

Before I knew about 'Azur Lane' I was working off of what I could find from Anime series for character ideas.  Finding British anime characters was exeptionally hard, so the few that I had went to the bigger battleships.  Lilith Bristol from 'Absolute Duo' drew the Monarch as her character had an aristocratic air about her.  It was the 2nd skin I worked on, and recently received a re-work to touch up some rough areas.

Saber from 'Fate' was one I had penciled in for the Lion immediately.  It was one of those obvious fit choices.  when I was taking the screenshots of the ship I noticed the tell-tale signs that it was one of my earlier works.  Some hard edges that I didn't hide.  Some rough textures.  I'll probably give her a 2nd pass when time permits.

The Conqueror was an experiment in 'large canvas' design.  What size graphics should I be looking for, and how much would I need to cover a ship of that size.  It took over 2 dozen screen captures from the anime, plus several visits to various wallpaper and image sites before I had the material I wanted.  On top of all that, it was an early design of mine from September 2017, and I couldn't resist giving it a second look after I had some practice.  A good illustration of this is the difference between the 16 and 18 inch guns on her.

UK Cruiser Line

 

I already had the Belfast completed by the time the 'Azur Lane' collaboration was announced, but that didn't stop me from making sure she was in optimal condition for her debut.  She may be hated by some in-game, but how could you hate someone in a maid outfit.  Really?

The Edinburgh was a ship I wanted to make a skin for a while ago, but the amount of fan art just wasn't there yet.  'Azur Lane' Edinburgh was my preferred option.  The combo of a maid in glasses was almost impossible to top.  Then she received an alt outfit with her eating chips out of a classic newspaper wrap.  This was followed by 2 pieces of fan art that completed the canvas perfectly.

One of the many things I like about 'Azur Lane' is its willingness to collaborate with other companies.  When the Hyperdimension Neptunia collab released I didn't hesitate to put Nep Nep on the Neptune.  I haven't ruled out the possibility of other collab characters filling in some needed gaps in the tech tree.

The Minotaur skin started as a request from a gaming acquaintance who asked me for a ancient greek artwork style skin featuring a minotaur.  The kind of art you see on ancient Greek pottery.  I asked him to see what I could do with an anime theme before passing judgement.  After I sent him the skin, his words were:  'You really nailed it with the minotaur graphic on the front and the blonde on the back.'  I never heard him ask about Greek pottery after that.

UK Destroyer Line (Includes Commonwealth Ships)

 

The UK Destroyer line was completed ahead of schedule and is ready for the official debut with the release of 0.7.10.0.  You can grind the entire line from start to finish with anime every step of the way.

 

Tier 2 'Medea'

There were several choices for this ship, mostly due to the 'Fate' series.  I narrowed it down between Caster Lily (Medea) from 'Fate/Grand Order' and Caster (Medea) from 'Unlimited Blade Works'.  In the end I went with lily, as she's a cuter and younger character.  More fitting for a tier 2.

Tier 3 'Vampire'

Vampire was one of those ships where the fan art FAR outweighed the size of the canvas.  Cute as she is, there might be a version two on the horizon, as there's more fan art of her being generated every week.

Tier 3 'Valkyrie'

As tempted as I was to use 'Valkyrie Drive' I thought it was a little too over the top.  Intstead I went with the social game version of the anime, codename 'Siren'.  I focused on the character 'Sashou Urara', as her artwork was tame compared to others but still attractive.

Tier 4 'Wakeful'

Welrod MK2 from 'Girls Frontline' was one I had in my hip pocket for a while in case I needed a subject for a ship I was stumped on.  So she goes into the destroyer line, as I have the cruiser line pretty well marked out for the future.

Tier 5 'Acasta'

This one was easy.  'Azur Lane' Acasta was one I was already gathering fan art for.  Certainly glad to see her represented in the tech tree.

Spoiler

Tier 6 'Icarus'

I started looking at Azur Lane shipgirls from the UK Destroyer line and tried marking ones that 'had to be in there'.  Then came the question of which tier would be most appropriate for them.  Knowing Javelin was going to be a tier 7, I started looking at anything 'pre J-class'.  That essentially put me in 'Fortune/Foxhound' territory, and further back into Cygnet\Comet\Crescent territory.  I ended up going with the 'F' Class and decided to move Cygnet to the Black Swan, given the name it implies.

Spoiler

Tier 7 'Javelin'

I remember thinking: 'well, I wish there were more Azur Lane matches in this tree.  But at least there's Javelin'.  Another easy choice, and one I was hoping for.

Tier 8 'Lightning'

Based on the name, and the fact I've wanted to do a ship based on this anime, I chose 'Mikoto Misaka' from 'A Certain Scientific Railgun'.  This ship took some extra time, as I decided on a lightning backdrop on most of the deckhouse.  The extra time was worth it, and I'll find myself conflicted when it comes time to decide whether or not to keep her.

Tier 9 'Jutland'

For a while I wanted my avatar 'Ange' to have her own boat.  With the UK options filling up fast all of a sudden, Jutland became the boat she can have all to herself.  The Iron Duke will still carry the full 'Princess Principal' theme.  Currently she is still under construction, still needing a paint job on the main guns as well as some of the minor details on the ship.

Tier 10 'Daring'

The tier 10 created a problem.  The Daring uses the Neptune's secondaries.  And all over them was Purple Heart from 'Hyperdimension Neptunia' shouting her audacious 'Commence teh pew pews!'  So that left me with using another character from the Azur Lane collab, and the destroyer representative was Blanc.  Most likely if the French get a destroyer line I'll move Blanc and her French-sounding name over there and make the Daring the sole domain of 'White Heart.  But for now this works fine.

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.
