Hi guys, I am excited to make skin mod for ships.

There are some questions I would ask:

1. What application used to make a mod?

2. What is the extension of the final product?

3. How to submit the skin for WG approval to make it dowload able from mod station?

4. Is it possible to donate the skin to WG to make it a perma camo? I will give it for free, no royalty requested. For I am a fan, not intent to make money from WG.

 

Thank you in advance. Any help is greatly appreciated.

The answers to your first two questions, as with some demonstration and explainations, can be found in this little tutorial I wrote a while ago.

To keep it short here, you will need the unpacker(from WG) and an image editor like GIMP/ Photoshopwith DDS plugin / Paint.NET should be enough for shipskin texture file edits in most cases

Ship SKIN files has the extension ".dds"

Feel free to ask me should you have any question regarding modding after reading the manual.

 

3. How to submit the skin for WG approval to make it download able from mod station?

I honestly cannot say for sure about the ModStation, but I can tell you that you can share your mods to appropriate sections of the WoWs official forums' User Created mod sections. Where a Wargaming's modding manager will verify and approve your content for other players.

 

4. Is it possible to donate the skin to WG to make it a perma camo? I will give it for free, no royalty requested. For I am a fan, not intent to make money from WG.

I am not inclined to think that WG, as a corporation, would find it appropriate or viable to include any user submitted donation content for various reasons, even if you are giving them out for free. For me creating a mod is to give to the community and the players.

However, there are occasionally shipskin/camouflage design contests like the pass Leningrad/Blyskaviska in which you can compete and win chances to have your creation included offically in the game.
