I have bug when I'm on dry land my tank suddenly get dark like it's wet, and that is repeat the whole game, especially on Lake map (the one with city and valley). Do you have this problem?

You mean that the camo stays dark for the rest of the match after you get out of the water or? As if so, then no. I can't say I've noticed that.

I don't get in the water at all, I drive and suddenly tank gets dark, after 50m or 10-15 sec suddenly became normal, and that is repeat the whole game.

No can't say I've noticed that either. If you run mods, it could be them making a conflict of sorts if some of them are outdated as there have been a fair few patches of late.

It's started again..I was in Ensk map, there is no water and this is not my tank, it's my teammate, I took second screenshot after 5 -10 seconds:

It's actually the action of clouds.  The wind is blowing, the sun is shining and ... there are clouds in the sky.  As in real life, the clouds sometimes go across the sun and cast a shadow ... and sometimes your tank is in the shadow.

 

Edit - if you spin round your own tank while waiting for the game to start, you will almost always find that one side is bright and the other is dark - it's basically creating it's own shadow.  It's quite impressive programming.

Its obvious, the tank is sweating in this heat.

Probably a problem with your graphics card.

Your tank gets wet without being near any water?...

 

 

Can't say I've noticed this bug on my end yet, though.

ThinGun tell me that you are joking...

 

It's not problem with graphic card for sure, some mod probably caused it but I don't use any camo or tank mods, only for minimap. Or is it some bug in game, I don't know yet what is it but I doubt that was mod related because it was happens in Frontline in safe mode too.

 

Thankyouv...I said it's not my tank, but you see that is russian tank and day was hot.:trollface:

I've seen this in real life, it's like water comes out of the sky and I get wet, like what's all that about?

ive not seen it on my own tank, but I have seen it when watching others. switching to them after ive died their tank will suddenly go "wet", if you switch and come back, it will be dry again, even if there's no water on the map at all... 

 

im not sure what causes it but it only stays around for a short time and usually I only ever see it once.. 

 

its not mod conflicts, so I wonder whether its actually intended as what thingun said, perhaps it IS the clouds, or the "weather" system?

It is a new feature from 1.0 update so I think that they didn't pay too much attention on that...maybe no one didn't complain so they don't even know about this bug. We didn't have wet tanks before Hd maps.

I'm not joking.  I have plenty of opportunity to observe this phenomenon, as playing TD, I obviously spend 99% of my game sitting still in a bush.

 

EDIT - when you're in spawn, you can actually see the shadows of the clouds moving across the fields.  They do actually follow the direction of the prevailing winds - it's surprisingly realistic.

You are absolutely right. I'm also amazed how realistic all is, i also saw rainbow couple times, once I even saw 2 rainbows and I'm sure that Mcdonalds was there.
