this mod will always display the silouhette oulines of ALLIED tanks, whenever they are a configurable distance away from your tank.
It also lets you configure the highlight silouhette colors of allied and enemy tanks.
Intended purpose of this mod is to prevent teamdamage when firing into melee brawls from afar, as normally you can only keep track of the enemy or allied outline as you keep your reticle on them. (Usually you target the enemy and the ally gets in the way at the wrong time...)
It also might help to spot the odd "YOLO" scout running at high speed into your fully zoomed in reticle just in time to pull up your triggerfinger.
You can press Numpad 1 to toggle the outlines on/off.
Here are a few screenshots showing how it works:
I dropped the Mod API configuration because of ongoing problems. I returned to a version with xml config in res_mods.
No further ado:
