Does anyone know a Armor Angle Mod which could show me I directly have the side of my tank at a 70 degree turn? A mod that works with our current version?

Wouldn't that be illegal?

 

It would add a gameplay feature to the client that the vanilla client doesn't have.

 

Besides, it is quite easy to just learn the angle anyways. Add me, and we can practice it if you want.

How would that be illegal, al it does is show the angle of your hull compared to the direction of your turret. It takes information on your screen and displays it a different way. 

 

And it would be really usefull, you would be able to angle the perfectly and sometimes you overangle when sidescraping by accident.

 

I have wished before there was such a mod

To be useful it has to be 70 degrees vs the incoming shell which would be a lot like laser pointer mods IMO.

Not really, like i said, all it has to do is the anglr between your turret and hull, or the angle between your hull and mouse.

All you have to do then is point at the direction of where you think enemy shell are comming to know the angle.

There is:

 

Melty maps math mod.

 

It also remind you the speed of projectiles and the penetration chance in % where you aim iirc.

You can edit the files and keep only the armor calculation.

It is a specific file, sure you need to have some experience in messing with mods.

IS still around, or included in some modpacks, you can extract the files you need or eventually manually update the new ones.

 

Too much effort for me considering how much time I play. (But if someone bothers to do that work and share it I would be very happy, I liked the armor angles a lot)

Can someone point me to a mod that reduces the damage taken from  other tanks to 0, while doubling my penetration on standard rounds which also get reduced in cost to 10% of the original value?

 

I'm no expert on mods ( i use only quickybabys modpack  ) but is that screen-clutter mod shown above really allowed?  Also, why would someone clutter the screen with all those colours in the first place?

That would be a gun angle mod.

By the love of the eight million, that's one eyesore.

 

But anyhow, it should be easy enough to learn your armour angles with experience.

Although with some tanks it is easier to learn than with others.
