BOB Skin

11-12-2006, 02:48 PM
Okay I am a skin FREAK... Tell you the truth i went back to page 46 or 44 from the beginning and spent weeks trying to look for a BOB skin to be pleased with but i can't find any. To me the most smallest detail matters. Ronald Speirs skin or any else doesn't fit me. Yes i know I am being selfish knowing that there are so many out there and rejecting them because they aren't somewhat realistic. I as that any of you make this:

okay Right here show their backside of equips:

Better pic:

If you can please don't make the thompson guy have a bag over his shoulders.

I will try to be helpful and explain while still remaining nice :)

There are very similar skins already done by Cruzaderazn and 82ndfrags (link) (
Both are very accurate.... Believe me if they weren't I would have nit-picked them apart long ago, I'm not known for holding back punches.

The real problem is that the skins can only be as accurate as the model itself. So as far as the most of the things you just mentioned go, those would require a new model, and by default custom players models are not allowed unless the server is set to allow them, and these are far and few between. This is the reason you do not see a lot of custom player models being posted anywhere

There was no set uniform for paratroopers. I have not seen the same set of jump suits on different troopers, so saying that they shouldn't be that bright isn't correct.

Look trust me they were not bright yellow. And the Reeinforced PAtches shouldnt be grey instead OD7.

And i hate people who talk down to others especially when they are surrounded by alot of gear used in the war (None of my Reenacting Groups M41 Match so i know the entire thing about uniform not matching)

i love it it shows realism and just because your reenactment(SP) group those one thing doesn mean its real.... probably not even close. How do you know what color the insignia is? have you seen the variety of these 101st insignia? go google it youll find it all different... and thats a pic from a paratrooper web so are you saying my sources are fake?
