Imperium
Hello everyone! It's my first post, so let me get a few things out of the way...

SWR is great and so is ROTR, thanks for making it!

Since I've been lurking for a while, and because I was bored/procrastinating writing school papers, I thought I would make some custom infantry textures for everyone, including (read: mostly) myself!

Permission to release has been granted by The_Hunter and Comr4de! HONOUR THEM!

Some things to bear in mind:
1. these will never make any code changes to the game, limiting what I can do.
2. I will not increase texture resolution without a very persuasive argument, so my new textures will work on any machine no matter how many conscripts you spam.
3. All textures should be considered to be in various states of WIP, even if I release them.
4. I am an amateur texturer; I've got years of experience, but mostly at doing on and off stuff for various games (nothing serious, no professional training whatsoever)
5. These textures have been tested and are compatible with SWR's multiplayer!
6. In the even that you hate a particular skin, you can remove that specific skin by going into the art folder and deleting the relevant file. Most file-names are easy to figure out.

Releases will be by faction, with each pack affecting all infantry of that faction in some way. Some releases will have optional files to use if you want to.

AMERICA?

DID SOMEONE SAY AAAAAAMMMERRRICA??!!?!?

FREEDOM!

(ignore the uh... red on those arms. Thats what we in the biz call a 'mistake')





Oh.. augh... so much LIBERTY, I need to clean myself up...

...Alright im back. America was the first faction I worked on, and consequently its the least im sure about. Im especially critical of my work on the Ranger and Missile Defender. Thoughts?

the ECA is actually basically done on my end. I need to change the pioneer and maybe the jumpjet infantry. I like how the ECA look the best so I wont show too much though smile.gif
{Lads}RikerZZZ
These are looking amazing dude. Keep it up smile.gif
teslashark
Perfect!
How about throwing in some black skinned USA and GLA soldiers?
Imperium
Sure, I can make a optional dark skinned set of textures for US infantry. It would take seconds to make, but I'll keep it optional since (because I cant add model variations) either all of X unit will be Y ethnicity, or they will not. The SWR team could probably 'fix' this problem rather quickly, kind of like what they did with the Felin.

What do you think about the US textures I posted. Suggestions? They probably need the most work.

Entirely different gentleman I'm afraid, although that man deserves praise, I really liked his work! It partially inspired my own. I wont touch vehicles too, I'm not very good with them, and I want to stick to my guns.

Edit: Almost forgot, if that texture pack works with 1.85, it will be fully compatible with this!
M01
If there was a problem for his vehicle textures it caused lag commonly on late game.

His infantry skins were good though he you tried it on 1.85? (I haven't yet)

also will you also do textures for the heroes or will leave them as they would be?

I havent yet, but I think Black Lotus really, really needs some attention. Burton, Jaeger, and Boris were all fine by my estimation. The jury is still out on GLA. I'm going to do them last, I think. Mostly because I have no idea what direction to take with them stylistically. I may try to make Black Lotus into a Chinese Special Forces operative, or something.

My infantry textures will not lag the game. They are the same resolution and thus filesize as the old ones. This is by no means a 'HD' pack, just aesthetic adjustment. I cannot say how they are in terms of online games, but they should not cause any online lag either, since ZH loads its graphical models and textures locally.

In summary: Machine/Gfx lag caused by this is unlikely unless your computer could not run with large numbers of the regular infantry in the first place, and Online lag is unlikely to be affected one way or another by this texture pack at all.

When I'm happy with everything, which is why you guys should be giving me constructive criticisms!

tongue.gif

In all seriousness, probably very soon. I will be releasing by faction so you guys can get access to my stuff faster!

The first pack I plan on dropping will be the ECA.

Second will be Russia, probably.

Third will be China

Fourth AAAAAMERRRRRICCCAAAA!

Fifth will be GLA.

ETA on pack 1: probably sometime next week. No idea on everything else.

Obviously when its done I'll re-release it all as a Greatest Hits release with a bit of extra spit and polish.
Imperium
You know that feeling, when you step up to do something and knock it out of the park the first try?

Well...



That feeling when the chinese volunteer squad is the best looking chinese infantry in the faction. Hooray for type 99 Camouflage!



(Justification: The Volunteers got some of the extra old out-dated 90s era camouflage while the Red Guard and Friends get also out-of-date 2000's era Type 07 camo. It makes a little sense in universe if you twist the lore a little.

Also featuring a cameo by everyone's favorite tank hunter. I still don't actually like him tbh, which is why he hasn't been previewed yet.

Also not-featured is the Chinese pyro, which looked kind of terrible and needs to be revised. Nukeneer is still untouched.
ComradeCrimson
I love your Chinese skins, and your American and Russian ones look friggen awesome too.

The only ones im not as big a fan of is the Europeans- I kind of prefer the ROTR ones over them at the ROTR ones look more like buff entrenchment soldiers moreso.


Can I ask 2 questions though?

Will these be able to be used without causing mismatches online? And will you post each skin as a separate download? Because I think I will definitely replace the Chinese skin with yours and possibly the American one as well if possible.

And im really glad you made the Javelin African American, as thats exactly what I had in mind for him when I voiced him.



As for the Russians, they are near perfect- just the helmet texture needs to be worked on I think. Make it more of a consistent colour, it will look better I think.

@ Europeans: Aww. Oh well, I personally love the ECA textures. Who knows maybe when I finish and release them you'll come around? I particularly love what I did with the medic. Maybe you could offer suggestions to improve these textures?

On Mismatches: I havent tested it out yet (no time, gaaah no time!) but I am fairly sure they will work. The reasons I have confidence is that Generals/Zero Hour loads its art assets locally rather than trying to sync them. It needs to sync stuff like .ini files, which I havent touched at all. This was proven way back in the days of vanilla Gens/Zero Hour where you could have all kinds of custom textures and possibly even custom models on vehicles, and as long as you did not change the relevant .ini files, you could play with other people. SWR's system may operate slightly differently, but I doubt it. Worst Case scenario you just need to move a folder in order to play online with this mod. Not a huge inconvenience.

On How my release is planned to go: Im going to release by faction at first. The current order is:

ECA, Russia, China, USA, GLA.
Once all that's done I'll release a compendium of all of them with extra polish and special features.

On customizing the mod: Actually that's an awesome thing about pure texture mods for zero hour. Hate what I did to a unit? No problem. Come release I will supply a list of texture file names each linked to their respective soldier. If you really want, eliminating them is as easy as deleting a file from a folder. In addition, I plan to offer some optional content, like African American versions of US soldiers, etc.

@The Javelin Guy: Thanks! But I could have sworn he was African American already before I touched him. Hmm... Regardless, I plan on making US infantry have African American variants in an optional addon. I wont really be doing anything to simulate Hispanic or Asian races in the American faction because in all honesty I'm fairly certain I don't have enough pixels to make them look appreciably different from Caucasians :S

@Russian helmets: What would you suggest for them? What I tried to do was simulate Flora with that. I can try one or two other ways but honestly it will always be blurry like that. Should I use Partizan instead?

Or do you mean its bad that I have helmet texture variation? Would it be better if they all had those turtle-looking helmets on?

I think the issue here is that you've made em a bit too plain looking and it actually detracts some of the detail. I do indeed like what you did for some of the units but its just a little too plain and a bit too similar to other factions. Plus I am not a big fan of having that red beret, I think black would suit better. Overall I just like the look of the blue for the ECA, its different and unique. Sorry mate, just my opinion :C

If I were to suggest stuff, differentiate the colour of backpacks to be more apparent then that stock green, add the odd accessory. Make them more geared out is my suggestion. The panzerfaust is probably what is throwing me off the most I think.

Also for more ideas regarding them via images...

Like the one with the radio or the more heavily armoured one in particular, add hats and stuff. More of a navy blue/dark blue.

Last I checked the original skin was helmeted so you couldn't necessarily tell. As for me im not too concerned over having the entire US army African American, im just glad to see units that bear that voice to well; be of the same skin colour so to speak. Having variety is good especially for the United States.

Partizan could definitely work- I just mean like a different type of green or some such could work, maybe do a bit of pixellization to shape their helmets a bit better. The sort of weird stripey effect you have on the helmet doesn't look as intended and kinda looks messy is all.

Maybe something akin to this with your own spin?



Oh and uh... suggestions for the GLA!


The GLA as we have them have taken on a more African warlord/militia style/theme. They are a mixture of fundamentalist types like we are familiar with in ZH (though they had a noticeable Central Asian/former Soviet Republic look back then) and in ROTR they should resemble African militias with the odd mixture of fundamentalist insurgents. I kind of like the look of how the GLA presently are, but making them more militia like would probably be the route you want to go.

Something like the following images perhaps...

@ECA Suggestions: Its okay to like and/or not like the things you like/do not like friend!

You're actually in luck; the Red Beret on the Panzerfaust may need to be axed due to the way the texture was mapped. I can basically turn it either black, dark blue, or green given my current situation. It will not stay red.

-Backpacks: I would looove to do variation, however that requires .ini modding, and believe or not a little bit of modeling know how too. I just work with textures. I can change the colour from green to something else though: Brown, Black, Grey, a simple camoflage scheme. You'll note that across the board I tend to just recolour the backpacks; its because theres only about 20 pixels to work with and detail is very hard to try and work in on them. I could maybe add a fascimile of a european flag (possibly impossible, actually, given some thought about it) but beyond that... Im not sure. I could add lines, to try and break it up? Help me out here friend!

@Metal Gear.... (the image suggestion): I could turn the panzerfaust guy into something vaguely similar to the one on the far right, although with less green. Possibly a unique looking urban camo with a nice navy blue armor over it?

@Swat Cosplay (the image suggestion): I dont want to make all ECA uniforms have that uniform blue tone, but I can do it with one or two. What stands out in your mind as being a particularly good unit for that coloration?

@Russian Helmets: Hmm... I think the one your talking about is the IGLA soldier helmet. Is that right? I can certainly try another pattern on him. Ill try out Partizan on the Conscript/RPG Conscript helmet as well (fun fact: they share the same helmet texture!). Part of the problem is that the model wrap is frustrating to deal with (not a dig at ROTR staff, it just isnt cooperating like the ECA helmets and chinese helmets do, thats all)

@Black Russian Helmeted troops (Image suggestion): Black helmets are very frustrating and hard to make look good. any detail you try and put on them gets muddled and smudged, like their heads have black holes on them or something. Frustrating, let me tell you.

@GLA: Good suggestions. I'll probably make the basic Rebel look quite African, complete with local (raided) camo mixtures, while I'll keep the missile defender middle eastern. Beyond that, I'll have my work cut out for me. The GLA give me a lot of freedom but also plenty of room to fail.

Since you're a fan of my chinese stuff, how about an exclusive?

These PLA troops are clearly regular army members, not part of those peasant red guard; they have Type 08 Digitized Tigerstripe Woodland! A rare camouflage that only started being distributed around 2014! (Not actually kidding there, its very rare and might not actually get fully adopted)

Just make em a brown or some such. That would do, like brown backpacks with the odd separating lines; I'd think that'd look pretty cool. Mix em with that green and then that blue armour or whatever would be good, or have the odd camo.

I don't like that shared texture as its messy, looks like random yellow stripes through it and just doesn't look too good. Make it more of a consistent colour or smaller blotches of camo/etc, that should work a bit easier.

Perfect to the perfecth power! Neither stamp texture nor color chunk can beat your skins.
Is your Tank Hunter dressed in the Type 07 desert camo, the yellow-ish one? I always find it oddly fascinating, maybe because it's not green centered. It could be worn by Volunteers since they are militia, or stolen by GLA. When Jin's exclusive units come out, they can also have a go.

The Tank Hunter is such a mess honestly, but yeah! Type 07 'Arid' If you look closely though, you'll see that his arms are Type 07 Urban/Multicam and his helmet is Type 99.

I kind of hate the Tank hunter and I have no idea why. He really isnt cooperating with my sensibilities. Originally he was Type07 Multicam like the Red Guard, then I made him Arid, then I realized his helmet is used for Volunteer Squad helmets (lolwut) and I didnt like the Arid on the helmet, so I changed it to type 99, then at some point I made the arms multicam for... some reason.

I need to basically re-do the entire unit I think. I like the chest piece he has now though. Maybe I'll make it type 99 like the volunteers.

Volunteers in Type 07 Arid? eeeh. I really love them in the type 99 now, and the Type07 outfits never seem to look quite right at this low resolution.

Definitely improving. I like how you did that lil quip about the Nukaneer, when I was voicing them I definitely wanted to portray a nervous man carrying dangerous and volatile weaponry that posed risks to his health. The quip compliments that quite nicely.

The grey ECA is kind of interesting actually. You'll have to improve upon it but im liking the look so far.

Significant improvements. The Russians look a lot better now. The only thing I'd do to help with team spotting is give them armbands of teamcolour, there is spots on the conscript's arm to do that, same goes for the other Russian infantry.

Why are the RPG Conscripts of black skin colour? Or aren't they actually? Cause it seems like they are.



I have no idea. I think a cosplayer. Yeah, most likely a cosplayer.

Though the gun looks pretty real, as the other shtuff.

Speaking of improvements, Ive cleaned up the first post and title. Complete with a new Chinese preview, featuring some MUCH improved textures. (the changes were very subtle, but have huuuuge impact)

They just have a slightly darker skin tone. I didnt make them african, I just replaced their face with one that had a little more shadows on it. Honestly im not really impressed with the results either. If you like, I can replace it with something else. Maybe a balaclava ?
Miglanz
Oh you don't have to please ME. But I guess balaclavas would be nice.

But I'd also light up the skin colour, because right now (at least on the screenshot) they look quite african indeed. And if a faction should have white faces, then it is the russians.
Imperium
Alright! Someone said they wanted team colour on their russians, WELL...







Featuring new IGLA helmets, much improved conscript and RPG conscript camo and... oh, who are those new fellows I see?

For the Russians, will you also have a snow variant for them too?

Not entirely necessary, just wondering.

Oh I would love to do that! There's just one problem.

That would require .ini editing, and model editing, and would make the game impossible to play with others.

However, it is possible to make an entirely separate set of snow/winter based camos that can be swapped in and out. That would double my work load though. IF there is high demand, I might do it for the grand release smile.gif

Please do. These Skins are brilliant smile.gif
That said, an idea i had about the US troops is that their helmets don't really look that good in the vanilla textures. Seeing this game is set in like 2045, i was thinking that by then they would have some more pseudo sci-fi style helmets, kinda like halo.



Mainly the halo 1 style with the single green eye cover, or the halo 3 with the orange goggles. I think you already did something similar with your vanguard as-well, so why not carry it over?

Volunteers in Type 07 Arid? eeeh. I really love them in the type 99 now, and the Type07 outfits never seem to look quite right at this low resolution.

I see!
The 07 Arid/Desert could be the missing link between shit brown and gold. I've been calling the color pattern "scorched earth" for no particular reason yet at the same time regarded it as somewhat cooler than vanilla.

Im going to do a media blackout on USA skins for the moment. Here's some interesting info though:

1. Future warfare will be a big part of the primary USA skin set. Hint: I've been inspired by a certain video game...

2. There will be ACU optional versions of the Ranger/Missile Defender.

3. There will be many more options for the USA than other factions, most of these wont make it until the grand release though, so you wont see them for a while.

4. The skins I previewed here before will all be heavily modified or outright replaced.

I would really like to see new GLA unit skins.

They are for sure on the list! Im just less confident about their design, so they are on the backburner. I have a few ideas.

If you like, now is the *perfect* time to suggest stuff for the GLA

So far I think only Black Lotus and Burton will be touched. Burton... hmm. Maybe Burton too.

Some worn, old robes and cloaks maybe?
As well as some worn civilian clothing.

@Winter Gear: Hmm. Im always hesitant to sign off on winter specific stuff. I'll definately think about it. The idea itself is cute though :3 The overcoat would be easy, the Ushanka, not so much.

@Riot Armor: Interesting. Im not sure how I feel about that. One option I had considered was a kind of cobbled together armor from a bunch of different sources. Hmm. I wonder what others think about this?
