Because it doesn't appear to hide any of the stuff that I'd like it to.

 

I'd like it to hide the 'special' paint jobs on premium tanks

I'd like it to hide camo on those tanks which only have it applied to the hull (good job there WG making the game look crap with your new camo policy)

I'd like it to hide the camo and base colour on tanks that have decided to add a base paint with incomplete camo

 

You know, all the stuff that is not historical.

 

As a bonus it would be nice if it removed all the stupid fantasy tanks as well, but I'd settle for the visuals.

It does what it says it does.

 

Anything that's not historical, like painting a tank in red won't be shown.

 

Mixing different historical camouflages in a single tank will be shown.

If you use the red base coat (rufus primer) then it will still show.

 

In fact this is entirely historical according to WG.

Thing is that all emblems and inscriptions that are rewarded are auto marked non historical. Inc the tank battalion marks on the Sentinel and AC4... that are historical correct. So some of it I actually want them to change the status on. While other stuff I don't want to see is... still there.

The color combo... doubt it. But the colors individually. They are indeed. WG did post some stuff on their FB page to show some of them are indeed real. Inc the pink Stug... tho it was not pink initially, but after a few weeks in the African desert.... well.

I'm not sure what you are getting at.

 

Those are all taken from the historical section and will show up in game even if you have hide unhistorical elements.

 

I know it's not actually an historical combination.

Just saying the colors are historical correct, even those that don't seem like it "besides the far right colors ofc". The combo. Well... I mean WG would add anyone that uses more then 2 colors etc on any tank to be unhistorical so you don't see tanks like that if you don't want to.  I just think hiding everything under one category in settings is a bit lazy. They could add filters so you could see all emblems and inscriptions that are unhistorical. But not unhistorical paint or paint combos etc.

If it worked properly you wouldn't see half the Russian tanks.

Yeah, but the camo rating is so good, a chameleon would never see it ...

It hides all noon historical tanks. They still can shoot you but you won't see them. All wg invented fantasy tanks (like 1/3rd) will magically disappear and you won't be able to shoot them.

Be careful using that option!
