Color pictures by PIBWL - release 3 (2019)
1 Attachment(s)
Here is the ultimate updated consolidated pack of my color pictures for WinSPWW2 version 12. If you are not familiar with them so far, you can read more about the color pictures in the subject: http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/showthread.php?t=49519 and second part http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/showthread.php?t=51002 (and on my page http://derela.pl/colorp1.htm).

The pictures should be copied to WinSPWW2 -> Game Data -> Pictures folder. Since they replace original black and white photographs, it is recommended to create a backup copy of a whole Pictures folder first, in case you wanted to return to photographs.

The pack covers almost all tanks, fighting vehicles, aircraft, HMGs, most of trucks, guns and support weapons. I've removed part of pictures, that are not in use anymore - except for more popular units, mostly German, so that they should show up in older scenarios as well.

An useless fun feature, that I've played with, is that most of light tanks' pictures are in a similar scale now (1px:35mm) (except for Stuarts, which were so big, that they would come ouf of a frame...). Therefore, some smaller tanks, like R-35, may seem too small - they were really THAT small. Also the tankettes are in a similiar 1:25 scale. Details are in the attached text file, as well as origin of most of pictures. Special thanks must go to http://www.tanks-encyclopedia.com/

A feedback is welcome. There are possible small updates, if I find pictures better enough. I'm thinking about SPMBT as well, but I don't want to start such a big task, unless there is an interest... ;)

The pictures don't affect a game play itself, and have no effect on PBEM games, but I'm obliged to put a disclaimer:


This mod contains highly altered or additional files that will cause interference with the master game files and it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that this mod be installed and played ONLY in a separate copy of the game and NOT run from the master game

For those, who don't want to install all pictures, in this thread there is a file with updated pictures only, after v.12 release: http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/showt...143#post845143

BTW: some pictures, as usual, come in several versions, which can be browsed and chosen.

In case you missed it, I'd like to gather opinions here http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/showthread.php?t=52340 if such pack for SPMBT would be useful.:)

An updated pack should be ready in a week.

Apart from pictures connected with the update, I've also managed to fill some gaps in previous vehicles, or create better pictures :)

I'm still improving some pictures, but they should be completed in a day.
In a meantime, I've prepared a comparison of light tanks in uniform scale, how they appear in the game (this time even Stuarts fitted, after removing of AAMGs ;) ).

Edit: I have to recalculate Stuarts (it was hard to find how they were measured, but finally I think I got a certain dimension), so it will take until the weekend ;)

Re: Color pictures by PIBWL - release 3 (2019)
I have completed an update to color pictures pack:
- restoring all pictures overwritten by SPWW2 v. 13.0 Consolidation patch 2020,
- covering new units,
- improving several older pictures
- and filling some gaps.

However, for some reason, I can't upload zip files bigger than 2MB to the forum at the moment, and the file is 6MB. :confused:
I don't want to split it into three parts, so at the moment you can mail me pibwl@poczta.onet.pl to get the update. :)

Okay, sorry for inconvenience, but I had to upload the pack in three files. You can also mail me to get one big file.

Any feedback is welcome :)

Re: Color pictures by PIBWL - release 3 (2019)
As usual, you should install the three files above again to restore the pictures overwritten by SPWW2 v. 14.0 Consolidation patch. Or you can wait for an updated pack covering new pictures, which should be ready by the end of April 2021.

Re: Color pictures by PIBWL - release 3 (2019)
I've completed an update, but still I am not able to add 6+ MB attachment somehow :(

Maybe somebody could try to attach it - if anybody wants to help, drop me a PM, so that I send it via e-mail.
