File Description

Namphibian has returned after a long break from skinning with what he says are his last Waffen SS skins for Call of Duty 2. Certainly he'll go out with a bang in this area, as these ones really excel in not only quality but functionality as well... that is, if you're a DX9 user. :P He's included brand new lighting maps for those higher-end users to appreciate, but even the DX7 guys (like me :) ) will enjoy playing with these sweet new skins. I think he accurately sums up the description in the ReadMe: "The end result reminds me of the SS troops in Band of Brothers (Episode 3, Carentan and Ep. 5, Crossroads)." If you're a fan of Band of Brothers, you'll for sure love these skins, but even if you've never heard of BoB, check out the screenshots below and download Namphibian's latest wonders! :thumbsup:

Waffen SS Plane Tree Camo Mod

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Author: Namphibian 

Email: namphibian@hotmail.com

Build Time: Lost track. Approx. 2 months.

Tools Used: Adobe Photoshop 
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Plane Tree is probably my favourite type of German camouflage, so
I (completely original concept as you can see) decided to make some 
realistic Waffen SS guys of my own. The end result 
reminds me of the SS troops in Band of Brothers 
(Episode 3, Carentan and Ep. 5, Crossroads) This will likely be the
last German skins I do, certainly the last SS ones anyway.

Gear Listing/Changes:

-M42 'slate grey' SD helmet with half chicken wire basket (greatcoat
troops)
-Type II Plane Tree 1/2 helmet cover (regular troops)
-Type II Plane Tree 1/2 Tarnjacke (smock)
-Waffen SS Oak A Zeltbahn
-Waffen SS belt buckle + collar tabs

Officer:

-Oak A Spring custom-made Feldbluse
-SS Schirmutze (Visor cap)
-Italian camouflage pants 

And changed a whole lot of other miscellaneous stuff. See
screenshots for more details. Full normal/specular lighting maps 
included for the benefit of DX9 users. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Install Instructions:

Place 'zzzz_BaseOfficer.iwd' and EITHER 'zzz_Springplanetree.iwd' 
or 'zzz_Fallplanetree.iwd' (depending on which colour 
plane tree camo you want to use) in your main Call of Duty 2 
directory 
(usually C:/Program Files/Activision/Call of Duty 2/Main).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A couple of notes:

-This skin won't work if you join a Pure server.

-4 pocket camo smocks. Type II Waffen-SS smocks are 2 pocket. 
However until the SDK comes out there isn't any way to remove the 
pockets from the default model. Same with the shoulderboards and 
length of the skirt. Also camo smocks were far more commonly 
used than camouflage tunics, especially by infantry, which is why 
I have done a smock and not a tunic. In fact I am not even sure 
if Plane Tree tunics existed, I have yet to see any photos of one. 
In any case, it's a realism trade-off no matter which way you look 
at it, so I have chosen what I consider to be the lesser of two 
evils.

- High-res. As I can't run high-res character skins I elected to 
make these cater for low-end system specs, thus these skins are
NORMAL/REGULAR RESOLUTION. Apologies to all those
with the capability to run high-res. However, it's difficult 
for me to test or get screenshots of skins I can't use in game. 
Anyway, Ferry's Panzergrenadiers have pretty much got the high-res 
department covered as far as that goes.

- Neither myself nor CoDfiles endorses or supports Nazism, Fascism,
the swastika or anything remotely associated with it. The use of 
National Socialist/Fascist symbols in this skin is for entirely 
historical purposes.
