If you could dress up your tank any which way, how would you do it? Something historically accurate or all-out wacky? Spark that creative flame, because our latest forum contest challenges you to make a custom skin for any tank in your Garage and post it for the chance to win a T26E5 Patriot or 1,000!

Creating a skin file for the HD version is similar to the SD client: you take the HD skin file and place it in the same folder you created for the SD versions of the files (as covered in the video).
After finding a vehicle and creating the correct folders in the “Res_Mods” folder in the game files, you'll need both the HD and SD versions of the skin files. The nice thing is, you just copy whatever files you're missing into the folder you already created with the skin files. For example:
Notice that the names of the files are different and there are two of each. Make sure you edit the HD one and save over both.
