Repaint of gio's corvettes in new slots
« on: August 14, 2020, 12:14:08 AM »

Due to severe lack of interest on convoy escorts by other seasoned modders, our esteemed western0221 has taken the time and effort to create a few new slots for gio's Flower class corvettes as an interim solution. I then proceeded to repaint them in US colors to cover some so far unfulfilled niches to make convoy escort missions more "realistic".

USS Temptress (PG-62), measure 14

USS Action (PG-86), measure 33

Generic Allied corvette
Painted to resemble HMIS (British India) Assam to represent any Commonwealth Flower class corvette in the Pacific, but I deliberately chose the never-used Allied flag so she could stand in as any Allied corvette anywhere. However, if you were to wish for some degree of historical accuracy, I've also included 2 optional flags (RADABA_T.tga and RADABA_T_dmg.tga) in their own folders within the AlliedCorvetteGeneric folder. Just extract the content of any of those folders and overwrite RADABA_T.tga and RADABA_T_dmg.tga within AlliedCorvetteGeneric folder with said content, and you'll replace the Allied flag with either US or Commonwealth ensign.

Thanks for the ensign options - the generic is now sailing under a RN flag in my game.

They look good - I will put them on my list for incorporation in BAT, hopefully on the next update (but I do have quite a long list).

I think we should thank gio and western for the bulk of the original work. The repaint was the easy part, I could have finished it in a day or two if it weren't for the kids bugging me to no end.

PS. These are just garnishes/side dishes for Knochenlutscher's truly spectacular upcoming CVE.

Milvipes! Many thanks for the new slot for these ships.

IIt is very important that your ship package is installed and operated separately. Does not require the installation of additional ships. Many thanks!!!

Is it possible to correctly add -1 german escort ship, 1 italian escort ship and 2 different japanese escort ships to your package?

I will try to update the textures and sailors.
Here's an example for your ships. Changed damage textures.

Excuse me for my bad english

Those are some superb damage visual models!
Gio has already provide us with an excellent escort pack that contains German, Italian, and Japanese vessels, so I see no point in adding those to my pack.
