Mods?

Question

Hello, I've been slowly climbing my WN8. I've used mods for years. But I've pretty much only used Garage mods and only Player stats from XVM. I don't use any other gameplay mods. So I pretty much play vanilla.

I was wondering if there were in game mods that super unicums use/prefer when playing?

As far as I know in the last ~3 years, most unicums have been running mostly vanilla as WG over time added all of the most useful mods to the vanilla game. You'll probably find there are still a number that run mods due to different visual style to suit their preference, or maybe XVM still.

I don't use any myself, but the most common one that isn't in the base game (which I would use if I wasn't so lazy) is the various variations of vehicles spotted, i.e. it shows if an enemy has been spotted or not yet, allowing you to quickly see if there are any bush campers you forgot to take account of.

I haven't used XVM in a long time, seeing the colors and numbers of my team can be dissuading so i haven't reinstalled it since.

A "mandatory" mod I don't play the game without is the default 2x zoom because I use shift to zoom and it's jarring to adjust zoom levels without it. Since I play casemate TDs I also installed a mod that disables the traverse lock so I can look around 360° while in sniper mode and not have my aiming reset by wiggling the tank

Actual optional ones I use are the team HP bars so I can get an idea of how much HP we/the enemy has mid-late game, spotted markers because I don't want to count the dots in my minimap, and a garage armor inspector so I can figure out how my shot got RNG'd to bounce

Huh? i just keep rmb pressed, so my gun is fixed, that way i can look around without moving my gun (not even need to press x to prevent accidental turning)

(and i have zoom in / out also on rmb, so i when i look around, i keep rmb press, and when i double click rmb i zoom out and immidiatly in again, so im mostly still where i aimed at, no need to scroll this way, and faster)

(also by having zoom in / out on rmb, u dont have to scroll all the damm time...)

What do you think about BalCalcMod? It lets you lock your gun elevated for a given distance, and thus actually hit moving/unspotted tanks on top of ridgelines, instead of launching your shell into the orbit. It's been part of Aslain's for ages, now on the official mod portal. This means it's perfectly legal, yet it somehow still makes me feel dirty whenever I think about it.

(Also, hi WoTLabs Forum! I've been lurking around here for years already, before this quality post finally made me actually write something...)

      I need a game like tanks that isn't stupid. Something I can take a break for 15 minutes and play, and then get back to the other thing I need to be doing. Suggestions please.

      Fuck the FV4202. The tank lacks the firepower to do anything if your team sucks. It cant even farm on them dying. How the hell people 3 mark this? 4k dmg games are uber rare and its super easy to end up with 1k combined if the gun trolls you and your team folds... FFS

      Credited with the Concept 1B tonight. Has anyone got theirs yet? Thoughts?
      EDIT: Nevermind - http://wotreplays.eu/site/5859757#karelia-snoregasm2-concept_1b 
      1 battle, 1 Ace tanker. Has insane armour, is fast as a medium, has no weakspots frontally from what I can tell, has insane gun handling. WTF WG?!

      The Panzer IV from the Girls und Panzer Anime seems to make it into the game.
      https://thearmoredpatrol.com/2021/04/19/update-1-12-1-🇩🇪-pz-kpfw-iv-ausf-h-ankou/

      Funnily enough. It is propably one of the most realistic premium tanks or tanks in general we got in a long time. Despide being from an Anime.

      Been struggling with tier 10 since coming back - jesus christ this is awful. If you don't play something OP you feel like a tier 9 in a tier 10 game. 
      Got an account with a 0 game FV215b that I marked (69 games, just barely 4k dpg lmao) - wound up running the equipment piece that prevents fires and the same directive after the same amount of fires as amount of games in a 10 game session (got lit 3 times in one game...) but after that I never got set on fire again. Totally worth putting those up and giving up vents so you can actually use the HP without a fuel tank fire. Been noticing that a lot of casemate TDs are running new equipment as well (7.5s was pretty much enough RLD to permatrack anything until it dies and it is not anymore. It's closer to 6, so I'm assuming it's the equipment since it also varies heavily.)
       
      907 yoloing with optics+directive is sort of working, I'm keeping 85 but getting good enough of a session without a derp to fall back down after climbing up is so rare with how common the absolutely worst maps are. I have played 8 times the amount of Erlenberg as I have Prokh (assault and encounter enabled), I also get a lot of Kharkov and Abbey that keep showing up too and these maps are just too poorly designed to get a good enough gameplan to fulfill the damage requirements. There's just no play that works well enough. 
       
      I tried tier 8 as well, and it's like a different game played on the same board. You get away with so much stupid shit because of gaps in view range and the overall skill level. It makes me feel like my mechanics are super clean as I can poke in to tanks pre aimed at me and fire, pull into safety/unpennable angle before they fire - but at tier 10 that is just wishful thinking. 
       
      Long way to go, I hate being this derpy in game quality which is what I'm going to work on but tier 10 is so ass..
