German Cloth?

10-05-2007, 04:39 PM
Does anyone have any examples of the cloth the Wehrmacht used on their tunics and uniforms? I ask because I'm trying to do a German reskin but the texture I'm using to bring details to the cloth doesn't fit what I see in games like RO or even in Wile's skins.

Grey uniforms were 100% wool.
Camo uniforms were usually Herring Bone Twill (HBT).
Both of these you can find examples of all over still today ;)



Camo parkas I'm not so sure about.

Great, thanks!

Now,for the color, does anyone have a nice RGB setting that looks like a nice green the Germans wore?

Can't really help too much there, except to say be careful how much green you use. Yes, I know, people viewing the model in a model viewer will say my skins are too "gray/blue", that the real uniforms had more green. What none of them take into account is the lighting used on almost all Source maps for DOD:S use quite a bit of YELLOW light...... making anything green really green. like way too green. ;)
