Hello everyone and welcome to Zuamgua's Icon Contour Mod

Posted Image

Basically I created this one for my own use, because I wasnt able to find one that will be simple, clear and matched with my needs. Later on I decided to share it with You guys - so if You like it - go ahead and try it:


Download Zuamgua's Color Icon Mod for 0.8.3(last update: 16 I 2013)

How to install? just extract the content of .rar file to Your WoT directory

Warning !!! If you are using XVM do not overwrite all of your current .swf files with one included in the package - just copy ComponentsLib.swf to flip crew "On vehicle" icons in garage (remember to change enemy team icon facing to right in xvm config file)

Thanks for Your time, enjoy the mod  :Smile_honoring:

The mod looks nice, keep it up.

I have a suggestion for you thou: try to lose the tiers (make it tierless) and make the fonts a little bigger so they can be read better.
Try that and see how it looks.

Looks much better in my opinion, but what happened to the letters "K" and "V" they look like "H" and "U" ?
Did you changed the fonts or is it a misspell?

Also i noticed "Z" looks exactly like "2" :/

Here is how it looks (look for VKs and KVs to see what im talking about):

P.S.
For the grey version I have another suggestion:
Try to match the Icon Fonts color with the standard WoT Fonts color - that shade of grey.
See if you can and if its readable over the Icons.

This color:

Yap, I changed font becouse the "original" font looks good only as small as it is in 1st two versions, but no worries :) I already found better font and updated tierless version - download it here:

Thanks for all suggestions - in near future ill try to match grey version better with WoT font color(and make a tierless grey one I guess).

Great. These new fonts look much better and easier to read. Keep up the good work ;)

Edit:
Just a little suggestion (again - I hope you're Ok with me suggesting so many things :))

In the names like VK 3001(H), VK 3001(P), VK 3601(H) the number "1" is not very readable because it's to close to the "(H)/(P)".
You can make a space between them or change only the number "1" font (ex: the number "1" from v.01 was readable without space).

This is how it can look with space and without space (how it looks now):

Very-very nice job here man. http://forum.worldof...le_honoring.gif
I've played some games with them and I really like it but I'm with GREPA's icons with colors so may I ask if you can color those icons?
Something like this:

Light Tanks: Yellow
Medium Tanks: Green
Heavy Tanks: Brown
Tank Destroyers: Blue
SPGs: Red

I guess that it will be perfect for me.

I can give it a try, but id like to keep em as much "original" as I can so i came up with this idea:

Posted Image

spg ht td - original color, and mt lt - green yellow

how do You like that idea? and tell me wich one You would like me to color (white, grey or bigger white?)

ps i think the "yellow" color is to "glossy" in this example, will try to fit a better toned one, like this maybe: Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

WOW! Thanks for your answer.http://cdn-frm-eu.wa...le_honoring.gif
White ones and color something similar with Jimbo's?
Why I'm asking is because original ones are too toned down for me, I'd like too see in a glance how many reds are in opposite team first :D then greens and so on.
Again thank you.

Man it's perfect. Almost. http://forum.worldof...mile-hiding.gif
I thing that colors should be more alive. Now they are very-very nice and elegant but on different maps backgrounds I (almost) can't distinguish between them.
But don't bother, maybe I need an period to get used with them.

Thanks a lot man and have a nice life.

LE: I think it's fine. I guess that I like them how it looks now. :)

Iv added grey bigger font tierless - but Im having a hard time trying to match color with WoT font color, becouse when You give it a closer look:

Posted Image

You can clearly see that its not a straight one color, and its a mix of grey-white tint colors. Zoomed it looks like its matched good but ingame its not that fine. Since my "grey" fill is only 1px thin, and WoT fonts are like 2-3px, and game keep on adding "tints" to the colors - im afraid its kinda hard to match em correctly :(
