Gold Ammo Visibility Mod

 

This mod changes the color of the visual hit effects of APCR and/or HEAT rounds. It enables you to identify and avoid gold spammers.

 

Disclaimer: Please use this mod responsibly and don't shame other players based on their ammunition load-out. Most high tier Medium and Light Tanks shoot APCR as standard and some tanks (like the T49 and Sheridan on their 155mm guns) get HEAT as regular ammunition.

 

Features

  • Changes the color of hit effects
  • Multiple colors choices available
  • Works for all tanks in both teams
  • Recolors penetrating hits, bouncing shots, ricochets, shots hitting the ground or other objects
  • Does NOT recolor none penetrating hits or shots into water

 

 

Color Choices

Both APCR and HEAT hit effects are available in the following colors.

 

Blue

 

Light Blue

 

Turquoise

 

Green

 

Lime Green

 

Purple

 

Red

 

Orange

 

Yellow

 

 

Downloads

Every color choice for HEAT and APCR is packaged separately.

So if you for example want HEAT to be green and APCR to be purple, you'll have to click the Green/HEAT and the Purple/APCR download link in the table and install both packages.

I suggest using standard vanilla shell colors - i.e. silver/gray for apcr and yellow for heat. Less fancy but more intuitive.

I already tried that, but you couldn't see grey very well and yellow was way too bright....

I'll try a brighter grey and maybe gold later :blinky:

 

EDIT: I uploaded 2 more colours. There are now 4 download options (one for each combination).

EDIT: doesnt work, i might retry it later

Imagine how annoying this would be if you have a T71 or a BatChat driving round you :D (both autoloaders whose standard ammo is APCR)

I actually enjoy playing BatChat even more with this mod to be honest :teethhappy:

Maybe I'll upload a video of the sparkling circle of death later this evening to proof, that it isn't annoying at all :tongue:

Very nice mod, exactly what I was looking for.

The amount of gold spammers I see now... it hurts my eyes (and my Jumbo :( )

 

I saw an M8A1 shooting gold at a *Hellcat*.

"Why do you shoot gold at Hellcats?" I asked.

"Why not?"

"Well, it has only 13mm hull armour..."

"I only have gold anyway"

 

:facepalm:

Can you make a version that doesn't work for YOU or your Team-mates?  i.e. works only for Enemy shots?

I like the mod, but I'm finding that it flashing for your own team and self hits, it's obscuring our vision being able to aim and hit the enemy.

That's not good.

 

Thanks for this mod, it's cool, would just like an enemy only version.

Sadly that's not possible, since this mod changes an already existing effect, which is the same for all tanks on the battlefield...

Maybe someone else could solve this with a script, but I don't have the programming skills to do so.

Sorry about that :sad:
