  1. Thanks (PC Master Race ftw! Good old Yahtzee) I removed a lot of the superfluous information that I regard as clutter but give people the option to put some of it back. It can take a while to find all of the alternative settings that you want but as far as I know it's the only modpack which has easy configs for damage panel, zoom and xvm mods The sixth sense in the video is in the sixth sense alternatives folder with instructions and whatnot but I'm sure you know what you're doing anyway
  2. Nobody has mentioned the FV4202.... It has to be one of the more enjoyable lines I have worked down. I hated the Crusader at tier 5 but that was with the old MM rules where you could see tier 9s. The Vickers at tiers 1-3 are capable tanks and the Matilda is a monster for it's tier. Comet/Cromwell are both great fun fast tanks to play and the Centurion then steps into the nice mid point between medium and heavy, a true 'support' tank then comes the Centurion 7/1 - arguably the best looking and most fun tank to play in the game. That gun is just insane and HESH rounds against batchats is just plain awesome. A platoon of 3 Cromwell tanks will salt the Earth with a Hellcat platoon's ashes Not exactly 'noob friendly' tanks to start with but you get used to them pretty quickly and once you do the game becomes oh so much more fun
  3. About This modpack has been in constant development since 2013 to get closer to the 'look and feel' that the game should have. It's a hyper-lightweight setup that allows the user to easily customise the modpack to their tastes. I wanted to work on this to make it perfect, not just dump a collection of mods in a pack. It has taken a lot of time and dedication (not to mention testing!) to get this damned near close enough to perfect and yes... I also use this modpack myself. Updates tend to be available either on patch-release day or 1 day after. Includes the following features: My easily customised XVM config 24 options for 6th Sense Icon Cleaner 'end game' page showing total dmg done by you, XP earned and credits after resupply All premium consumables and ammo are set to the credits option (rather than gold by default) Rudy 6th Sense Dog Sound Traverse lines for TDs shown on the minimap Zoom Out mod [optional extra] Free Cam for replays [optional extra] SafeShot (for dead tanks and/or allies with no chat spam) [Utilities Mod] Reload notifier macro for 'reload drum' key [Utilities Mod] This modpack is one of, if not the most efficient customisable modpacks with all the features you could want or need... whilst also retaining a very 'Vanilla' feel. Just look at the screenshots for comparison! XVM stats are disabled by default and you can choose where you want stats to be visible! Either have your screen look like a unicorn took a great big dump on it - or use it to wean yourself off stats slowly by only having the 'stats form' (pressing tab in-game) with colours. Complete and in-depth Online Documentation is also available to help and for those who want more customisation I have included details on how to enable things such as Auto-equipment and Auto-crew return. Whats New in this version? DOWNLOAD SECTION Download Latest [stable] XVM Download MatraMod2 XVM Config [9.19] UPDATED Optional Sixth Sense Icons Pack Full Online Documentation available too!! Extras/Utilities: Download MatraMod2 Utilities [9.17.1] - click here for details (might work on 9.19?? Support discontinued) Download MatraMod Zoom Out and Freecam [9.19] - click here for details MatraMod Automated Cache Cleaner Download MatraMod2 XVM Blocker [6.5.4+] - click here for details Bugs: None reported Screenshots (click thumbnails for larger versions) Comparison of minimaps Vanilla on left, MatraMod2 on right [Vanilla now used from 9.16+] MatraMod2 benefits: Minimap can be made larger/smaller than vanilla using + and - keys Traverse lines for TDs Simple and easy to see camera direction line Shows aim indicator on minimap when playing clicking scumbags SPGs Comparison GIF (click to play) New Improved camera line (looks more like vanilla) for all versions after patch 9.16 Spacing between the middle of each 'gap' is 100m, sadly you cannot use the traverse lines and in-game camera line option so I made this config to look like the in-game option (option to disable line also available) Comparison of Player Panels Vanilla on left, MatraMod2 in the middle and an example with stats on the right. Stats colour is based on metric set (WN8 for Wotlabs option, your choice on XVM website option) NOTE: Stats example is from an old config, it's here to show the colour 'splash'. Actual panel is formatted the same as MatraMod2 - just coloured... obviously! The MatraMod2 example also shows the damage log above it. You can see why I now chose to remove some of the unicorn poop colour from the screen to give it that 'vanilla' feel. MatraMod2 benefits: Uses a slightly darker colour to be less distracting on screen Uses opacity to control to show who has loaded into the game (and who hasn't) - obvious who hasn't loaded in. Easier to read name/clan tag, clan tag differs from name format and includes space Neat and tidy Damage Log (optional) Right side of screen mirrors the same format as left (name, space. clan tag as opposed to clan tag, space, name). Comparison GIF (click to play) Remaining HP shown for both teams/players when pressing alt, can be made 'permanent' by selecting the smallest players panel. 'Normal' On 'Alt Keypress' Comparison of Battle Loading Screens Vanilla on left, MatraMod2 in the middle and an example with stats on the right. Stats and colour are based on metric set (WN8 for Wotlabs option, your choice on XVM website option) NOTE: Stats example is from an old config, it's here to show the colour 'splash'. Actual screen is formatted the same as MatraMod2 - just coloured... layout is Games Played Overall, Metric(WN8 etc), Overall Winrate. Ignore the tank icons too... can't believe I used to play this game with so much colour!! MatraMod2 benefits: Nicer Font Shows platoon icons (of players in platoons) Easy to read name/clan tag Able to see who has already loaded into the game De-cluttered screen Comparison GIF (click to play) Sixth Sense Options - (click to enlarge) Screens of in-game placeholder Videos Just a video showing how clean the mod looks during normal play. Shows utilities script too If you want to share any videos or screenshots then feel free I will be slowly adding more in future now that I have a non-potato powered PC Tutorials I also write the odd tutorial and they can be found on the links below Make your own Marks of Excellence mod tutorial Make your own XVM config tutorial - Discontinued due to lack of support but useful for reference Donate Some of you may wish to 'buy me a coffee' or something to say thanks for all the hard work... well I don't drink coffee but I am a budding magician so feel free to buy me a pack of cards or something from my Amazon Wishlist. I genuinely have no idea on how many man hours have gone into all of my modding stuff over the years, the config guide took over 120 hours alone! I also will not turn away any in-game gifts - or why not just donate that money to a good charitable cause like Cancer Research? Let me know (with proof) that you have donated and I'll add you to the hall of fame! Archive Archive No Longer Available as it's a pain to keep updated, I don't go back a few patches and only keep development issues now. It also starts taking up considerable amount of space with the latest influx of mini-patches etc. Credits See Online Documentation for full credits list
  4. There is a mod that does this for you and it is banned on most servers
  5. Bit late to the party but there is a tool that takes single configs and splits them into the correct (multiple) ones http://www.koreanrandom.com/forum/topic/18656-monosplit-v052-031014-%D1%80%D0%B0%D0%B7%D0%B4%D0%B5%D0%BB%D0%B5%D0%BD%D0%B8%D0%B5-%D0%BE%D0%B4%D0%BD%D0%BE%D1%84%D0%B0%D0%B9%D0%BB%D0%BE%D0%B2%D0%BE%D0%B3%D0%BE-%D0%BA%D0%BE%D0%BD%D1%84%D0%B8%D0%B3%D0%B0/
  6. Oh hey CoolOff - you're Ex QSF too aren't you? Recognise the name
  7. Hi All, Thought I should probably spend more time around here these days as working (slowly) to becoming a unicum - currently only blue but definitely heading in the right direction. Bit about my WoT career - Started playing a bit over a year ago, spent most of the last year in QSF. When I joined I only had one hand (and did so for some time) as the other was broken, yet I still played when I could (mostly arty left handed!) - Only have one tier X tank with about 7.5k games played, I like a variety so playing a variety of tanks About me - Used to produce music but no longer have the time to put into it - I design AUVs and ROVs (underwater robots) for a defense company during the day and spend what time I don't have in WoT with my fiancée - I spend a lot of 'free-time' modding/tweaking/hacking anything I can get my hands on... from Japanese sports cars to computer programs so have played around a bit with modding in WoT (generally taking other people's work and making it better!) QSF is one hell of a gaming community so hoping that this place is just as inviting to someone who wishes to progress (I also swear that WaterWar did not hold a gun to my head to make me sign up on WotLabs)
