Razzle Dazzle skin -V2
« on: September 15, 2012, 04:33:03 PM »

.


This skin will turn the Aurora in a generic (no flag) WWI battleship with an early b/w Razzle Dazzle camouflage

INSTALL
copy the "00 new aurora" folder in #DBW or in your Mods folder
-------------------------------------------------------------

Following Agracier's suggestion, I add two other versions, for the dry and liquid cargo ships.
I also changed the stack with another one, closer to WWI design
The camo is always in the early b/w Razzle Dazzle, but there were also more psychedelic schemes...

-the Razzle Dazzle camouflage could be b/w or made of different colours and was quite common during WWI

Really beautiful skin. Those camouflages were amazing, but probably completely useless. I always loved them. Thanks a lot.

Those camos were meant to confuse German U-Boats about the real course of the ship; it was believed that through a periscope it was more difficult to distinguish the bow from the stern of a Razzle Dazzle vessel.
How much it really worked, I agree with you, is difficult to know !   :P

Great stuff Ectoflyer! This is beautiful – been using the Aurora in WW I missions with original Russian camo – this looks far more cooler. Thanks very much  8)

this is a dazzingly beautiful reskin ... great idea ...

And maybe a suggestion (since I have no idea how to reskin ships) - wouldn't it be great for a Great War convoy to have some cargo ships in Razzle Dazzel camo colors as well? This could give a whole new dimension to DBW 1916 ships ...

Wonderful ships ... many thanks.

And you've got to hand to all the modders here. Which other game can you come up with a suggestion and see the results so quickly? I seriously wonder if there even is another sim where anyone has thought to use this kind of Great War naval camouflage ... this really adds atmosphere, I can almost hear the troops on board the ships shouting 'Lafayette, here we come!' ... ha ha

Just a few period illustrations from the Great War showing some razzle dazzle stuff. The first cover, from 'Fragments from France' being a war-time spoof ...
