Carefully picked skins for each faction and environment.
Some skins have been edited by myself, but most of them made by other people - years ago. Can't credit them as their mods no longer exist. They used to be on relic forums.


How to Install:

1. Go to your COH install location. Mine is located at:
C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/SteamApps/common/Company of Heroes Relaunch
2. Extract zip inside coh directory and you will be prompted -> replace the files

- Slightly trimmed task bar for slightly more viewport (like 3% trimmed)
- New infantry white star veterancy icons, larger vehicle veterancy icons - makes veterancy more clear this way
- Factions are skinned more historically accurate
- Improved environment textures
- VP is like a normal manpower point - I like this as its smaller and takes up less view space
- Using mostly original coh unit icons - grens and volks swapped unit icon (major flaw with original coh skin pack gave volks are higher rank than grens)
- Included corsix studio tool - used to mod the game, if you want to use it

New screens to show vet icons and environment

[size=1]Many thanks to GoPepsi for showing me how to use corsix!
I take no credit for creating the skins. All skins belong to their rightful owners/creators. I put them together, but they deserve the credit for the design of them. These skins can no longer be found as relicnews is gone
These skins might have problems working with campaign (not tested) but are fine for Multiplayer usage!

Hi Everyone. I have been on the search for the 'best' Company of Heroes Skin Pack that works online. IMO, I found it.
I merged IP4k's Veterancy Icons with http://www.gamereplays.org/community/index...howtopic=830740 ILikeTrainz's Skin pack that he posted. I found this to be my favourite skin pack ever and believe me i have tried a lot of them! Have Fun!

The Veterancy Icons work for Wehrmacht and USA!!
There is a bug where only half of the star shows when the unit is in a building, but i personally don't care because they look so awesome.

If someone can show me how i can use separate Veterancy Icons for the Wehrmacht e.g. have a cross instead of a Star then i will be happy to change and re upload!! biggrin.gif

How to Install the Skins:

1. Go to your COH location. Mine is located at C:/Program Files/THQ/Coh
2. Open Up WW2/Archives
3. Back up the file named WW2art.sga
4. Download the New WW2.sga and drag it in to Archives.
Happy Gaming!!!

You can't choose seperate vet icons for each faction. ToV didn't just ruin the balance, but it also changed the whole vet system. Now there is only a vet symbol for all factions, not each individual faction.

Yeah I found them too and tested them out, didn't work for the most part and some of the stuff that did work(like in the taskbar) it looked really stretched and messed up. And for some reason now my PE has some weird vet icons for the taskbar(not sure what it's called tbh) too.

More screenshots would help. Whats new here, the vet icons? Are there new skins for tanks or they're the same with HSC 2.0?

Best Skin Pack For Company of Heroes my ass, its Historical skinpack compilation with IPFK vet icons. Big deal.

Now i address to someone who really know how to make a skin pack. A real skin pack would include variations of skins, for example each unit shouldn't look the same, you have 4 shermas with 4 different skins. That would be something new.
I think sturmtiger achieved this, too bad he doesn't want to share his skinpack with us.

Go make one then ass wipe, you obviously know how to do it yourself. its the best skin pack available for download that i can find. I merged 2 great things together to create my favourite skin pack. READ THE DESCRIPTION, I said that its hsc 2.1 and ip4k's icons idiot. Learn 2 read. I only did this originally for me but I thought people might actually like IP4k's icons with a nice skin pack. If someone can show me, I will update it like SturmTiger's skin pack.

Only just learnt modding the other day....

New version coming soon! need a Pershing skin desperately been looking for ages now. found 2 variants (plain and camo) from same artist but for some reason it only gives me half a pershing sad.gif


*EDIT* I fixed the pershing bug! turns out the previous pershing in the pack was a different shape so i added the vanilla pershing back and then replaced that with the new one biggrin.gif
