Step 1: Download my handy uniform templates HERE.

Step 2: Create your own camo.

Step 2.1: First create a new document 300 X 300.

Step 2.2: Fill the base layer with whatever base color you wish your camo to be.

Step 2.3: Create a new layer.

Step 2.4: On this new layer, go to Filters>Render>Difference Clouds (make shure your colors are set to black and white). Keep doing this untill you get a pattern that looks vaugely camo-ish.

Step 2.5: Go to Image>Adjustment>Brightnes/Contrast. Throw the contrast to full. You should see a patern of black and white splotches.

Step 2.6: Select which ever color makes the niftier pattern using the magic wand tool.

Step 2.7: Fill that selection withthe second color of your camo.

Step 2.8: Go to Select>Inverse. Hit delete.

Step 3: Repeat Step 2 untill allyour colors are in your camo. Don't worry if it doesn't look perfect. Optionaly, play around with the blending modes on your different layers to try new effects.

Step 4: Go to Layers>Flatten Image.

Step 5: Go to Filters>Pattern maker. Set Hight and Width to 300, Smoothness to 3, and Sample Detail to 10. Generate untill you see a patern you like. Hit OK.

Step 6: Go to Edit>Define Pattern and save your new camo.

Step 7: Load up the uniform templates and use the pattern stamp tool to paint you new camo onto the color layer.

Step 8: Paint in all the other details.

Step 9: Add in any patches above the wrinkles layer.

Step 10: Flatten your skin.

Step 11: Save as .DDS. Save with DX5, and use existing mipmaps.

Voila, you have a new skin.

No doubt. That would save a lot of screwing around now wouldn't it.

Until then it's the same old set of digital patterns I've been maniping the whole time. It takes a while longer, but it still works.

Great job on the ACU skins by the way!
