Ahh, gotcha. It's been awhile, but I believe I used to use a circle select tool, then using the "adjust brightness" tool, ran the brightness up, to make a more faded look to it? Using Paintshop Pro. Base looks good!

That's a great idea! Cleaned up some edges, changed colors a bit, and used your method to lighten.

[X(] Wow! That worked great! These sets are done 3D, 4D, and 5D along with some minor overwrites of national insignia on Mike's gorgeous 2dicon file.

They look great! [&o]
But what do you mean with; 3D, 4D, and 5D ? Probably getting it wrong but I'm reading that as 3Dimensions 4Dimensions 5Dimensions LOL

So I thought to myself If GD had the Wehrmacht camo shouldn't the Waffen SS have theirs

Let me finish the other levels and I'll forward to you.

Hi, I would like to get the mod for this bases. I am not familiar on how to use MODS on my games. Would you be able to tell me how I can make a base like the SS ones but using the FEB logo for the Brazilian Army? Great bases. I would like them too.

Okay a few new variations based off vehicle camo. Tried a new variation on selected vs unselected. Rather than brightening I decided for unselected units to reduce the national insignia by 30% and reduce overall color saturation by 20%. I'm pretty happy with the results. Unselected unit bases do not look washed out, camo remains obvious and national insignia is not "in your face" all over the map, while selected units have deeper colors and "in your face" insignia.

Thoughts and comments are appreciated.

Note selected mortar unit

Again note selected leader

zartanlaw,

Thanks for liking my project! [:)]

Man I could write a couple pages about how I've been making these. Started using MS Paint but have found Photoshop to have much more flexibility. I now have templates of blank bases that I can pretty much plug whatever I want into. Point is the more I mess with this the more I'm still learning and evolving methods. I'd be happy to make a base for you if you emailed me a good quality image of the insignia you'd like on the base. Just click on XLVIII Pz. Korp to the left and email me.

Thanks for the reply man, I will send you now the insignia of the FEB Brazilian Army in WWII. Give me a sec and it will be in your email. Man, I've been playing this campaign series since the 90's but never got online about it. Now I see I got a lot to learn. Thanks bro.

I think you've got a new career in unit base design.[8D]

Those are gorgeous screenshots. I like especially how the camo bases blend in well with the underlying terrain. The large/small insignia for selected/unselected is a clever idea too. Cool stuff. [8D]

Berto and Juggalo,

Thanks guys.... I think I have too much time on my hands. [:D]

The 2 camo schemes I posted tonight are gonna stay, however I'm gonna keep tinkering a bit with the earlier efforts. I'm really starting to favor the Larger/smaller insignia for selected or not.

When I'm satisfied with all of it I'll forward to you guys for user mods 2.01 Just tell me where to send. In the meanwhile I'll keep tinkering and posting ideas on this thread.

Sorry, in all likelihood you won't be finished for 2.01 proper (which is due out Real Soon Now). Your base mods would have to remain standalone until 2.0* (if and when), but for possible merging with 2.10 (definite, and much later).

For sure, keep tinkering and posting in any event.

Sounds like a plan to me. We're both up way too late pal... I'm in Chicago just like you. I know what time it is. [:D]

And the new Boys From Brazil....
