Sad to see you go, so thanks for everything. In case you are quitting for good, maybe opensource your mods so someone else could take over?

 

My mods have always been kind of open source. I never obfuscated or protected my mods against decompilation, because I learned from others and it would only be fair to grant others the same option. :)

I am currently in contact with some modders who offered to get the minimap mod on the way for the future. I supplied the sources as I worked with in the past and described the way I worked in detail. Here is hoping. :)

Well...I guess the main reason for this is historical: I started out with little experience in modding this game, so I started translating russian mods like the Damage Panels and the session stats and so on. After a while I got good enough to do my own mods (Minimap, TeamHP-Pool (which is basically gets used as basis by a lot by other modders on RU so there is kharmic quid-pro-quo here), Scope-Removal, UT announcer etc.). As the old ones I started out with got broken and deserted by their previous owners, I fixed them and carried them over from version to version to keep them alive. I still kept the original author noted and credited in the forum threads, btw.

 

This said: I never had any quarrel with the original authors, just with two cases of self proclaimed mod-authority who seem to need to defend mother russia or whatever against the evil westerner, and in more than one case even helped out with small fixes and additional features (tratatanks stats mod as example). If any of the original mod authors contacted me and asked me to remove the mod because it was his intelectual property, I would have done so in a heartbeat!

Thanks for your excellent contribution to this game. If there were a hall of fame for modders you deserve a place there. Have a great life

@locastan,

Thanks for all the time you have put in for the community!

Can't remember if I donated before but at least I did it the other day for the only mod I use "minimalistic stats" mod.

A very well deserved donation, I hope all the best for you in the future and your mods will be greatly missed!

Thanks for your openness about the mods history and the possibility of someone else taken by over. I used the minimap mod and also the dealt damage mod. The damage mod really helped improve my game. Hopefully someone else  will do as good a job as you did.

 

Have a good life what ever you do with it.

It is sad to see you quitting m8 , but a mans got to do what a mans got to do , good luck.

 

now then who said it was a bad idea what WG have done with the maps?

 

i think its a great idea, keep new players on a handfull of maps until they know them like the back of their hands , knowing where to go and what to do on a map wins you the battle

i would go further and say dont let players buy higher tier tanks until they reach certain standards , its not fun when in random tier 8 battles and your teams top three tanks players xvm rating does not total 28 , but it happens all to often.

 

 

but this is reality and thats not going to happen because bigger tanks burn more credits and anyone can buy a tier 8 heavy for real money , its money ,money ,money. 

Nothing is for free....... not even free to play online games but we all really knew that anyway didnt we?

 

look on the brightside , World of warplanes crashed and burned ,world of warships is dead in the water , maybe now , just maybe they will understand their predicament ?

look after the tank players they pay the wages.
