This skin pack has been researched through the teeth in order to make these skins. Everything has been re-worked and retouched, down to the pleats on the pockets and the leather of the boots. Enjoy!

I hope everyone likes this pack! Read the README for installation and more information. Enjoy! This skin-pack is a depiction of a mid to late-war squad of german wehrmacht troops. Proper mid war insignia, uniforms, and gear have been added to add to the immersion. Every squad member has a distinct uniform, uniform type, helmet, face, and belt. I have corrected many many things and feel it is ready to be distributed. These skins have my blood on them, so I hope you enjoy! If you are looking for a full-blown nazi regalia skin pack, this isn't for you. I recommend SS skins for that. This is straight german infantry. Note: If anybody can direct me to a proper tutorial on normal mapping for DoD:S, I'd be very happy. I have run into unknown problems normal mapping skins for this game, that I have not faced in other source games. Due to this I have not included phong'd uniforms.

    As a WWII nut, I'm really specific about these things. The Wermacht wore gray uniforms.


    As a WWII nut, I have to correct you on that. The Heer section of the Wehrmacht wore green as shown in these skins. Officers wore gray.

    I really don't have any complaints. I think this is a great set of skins. The individual outfits for each class is something a lot of packs don't do and it makes for a very repetitive visual experience. Your on the other hand actually took the time to do each class. And not only that, but the detail for each of the skins is great as well. For this, you get an uber thumbs up.

    Great job!

    I'll use anther color/texture for V2. I took the color off of a scan from my reproduction M40 uniform, but I guess it's not right?

    That's also one of the photos I used for color reference.

    I'll most certainly be fixing these skins ASAP and will release a V2 soon after.

    Well, it's a good beginning.

    As you will undoubtedly find, much of the lighting in DOD:S maps is going to turn these models bright green. I found out the hard way, my earlier skins were too blue though. but yeah whatever "green" you see in the texture will be multiplied by 2 in the yellow lighting most maps use.

    I'll download and review later when I have time unless somebody else beats me to it

    They are slightly green and I think that is proper for a summer uniform

    Ukdecay made those models. Please include him in the authors.


    Included, odd I thought these were stock models. What is different?

    They were made under his name. He changed around the values to allow a different texture for each class.


    ahh, gotcha, thanks.

    Do you know how to work with Vmt's? Are you a handy man; when it comes to photoshop?
    Can you make wrinkles in the normal maps?

    I dont mean to be rude, or interrogate you, But I would like to know what you can do, So you could possibly make a V2 of this. All I can say is that its a good start, And has alot of room for improvement. I have not looked at the textures yet, But im am downloading for a closer look as I type.


    No offense taken mate, this is my first attempt at a DOD:S skin pack. I know how to work with VMT's, normal maps, and the like, but this is the first time I've worked around with this game. So I'm still working out kinks and such, and am open to any critique.

    I've been in with photoshop for about 5 years, and can most certainly take some advice as to making this a better pack.

    -Also, I'm sorry again for sounding like such a harsh dick about the 502nd skins.

    Actually, for realism's sake, I left it out. It is a common misconception that the german army was "blonde hair and blue eyed wonder children" The SS was commonly known for that blonde haired trait, not the Wehrmacht, anyways. So it doesn't even apply here. And by 1943, the SS had disintegrated to nothing more than foreign recruits and boys, not the fanatics Germany once had. Hitler kept his besties back home with him.

    I appreciate your thoughts though. If people really want it, I guess I'll include a pack of blondies.
