Could you add automatically return crew to vehicle?  With so many premium tanks it's the only mod I need.

I'd prefer it not to automatically do that. Too many instances of clearing a crew out, viewing another tank, going back and the bloody crew magically pops up again. Two clicks in the standard client and they're back, not turning up by default, that's fine for me.

XVM can add this functionality.  One of the few reasons I use it.

Yes.  That and equipment.  Some tanks have binos, some TDs camo nets and binos (re equipping is TDious - lol) and a few of my super heavy's use the toolbox.

Is this so hard?

I suspect that the reason it is not automatic is that every crew move creates traffic to the server and that costs WG money and could even contribute to lag in game.

I use Ekspoint's Auto-Equip for the equipment, does exactly the same thing without all the bloat of XVM. I've found a reference to a crew return mod by the same author but it looks to be out of date from 9.18 so I've no idea if it's something he maintains.

Can you use this feature without xvm stats? I prefer not using that, makes me mad when my team is full of reds and theirs greens/purple. It's easier not knowing.

You can install XVM and as long as you don't activate stats on their site, all the 'helper' mods will continue to function. You'll have a lot of bloat for little gain but the option is there.

Oh cool, I've done that, haven't played yet though, what do you mean "a lot of bloat"?

It means you installed all the XVM stuff and probably have a lot of it running but aren't using it.

What he means is that xvm adds a lot of functionality, and you can't turn all of it off, at least, not easily. And even if you do, it's still there. 

 

In the past, things like the xvm map would make players drop potentially tens of fps (the worst I saw personally was 12fps difference between vanilla and XVM modded clients.

 

This is much less of an issue now.

 

While I play my battles vanilla, and have for about two and a half years now, I have a custom XVM config to manage my garage:

My Gold and free XP are locked against accidental usage.

Premium consumables and ammo default to being bought for silver, convertible XP is not used in calculating what upgrades I can afford, my tank carousel is sorted primarily by tier->class->nation instead of nation->class->tier and I make use of the additional filters extensively (especially the "non elite" filter.  WG have the filter for elite tanks, but I would kinda like to show the 16 tanks I am working on and not the 116 that are elite or premium).  I also force the small carousel icons to be used, and extend it to 5 rows of tanks.  This way, I only have three screens worth of tanks...
