Hello all, I have found a usefull mod for those with poor eyesight. It is in Aslains modpack, and there you can make dead tanks white, remove the smoke that comes from wrecked tanks, and also make a tracked tank show the track in white, and it shows the map size in meters on the top lh corner of the minimap. I find this helpfull for short range arty.

 

I didn't have any other features (from the bewildering array) selected, as I like the game as it is, just picked the few I wanted and it works perfectly. It is downloadable from WOT official website.

 

I suffer with poor sight and was running into dead tanks, shooting them instead of the tank sheltering behind etc. And the smoke was also a problem for me. But no more. Many will think wow big deal, but since we don't all know everything I thought I would share this.

While the white tank mod is afaik currently not illegal, though it used to be and I'm pretty sure it's banned in competitions, it should in my opinion be banned. Just like the Tundra mod it makes it easier for those using it than those not using it, ie an advantage.

I think it's a cheat mod, get rid of it before WG get rid of you. If you want to argue it is a 'disability' mod, like colour blind mode, then you have the problem that it also makes differentiating between wrecks and 'live' tanks easier for every bot player in the game. Play without mods!

Mods like that hopefully get banned soon. Obvious cheatmod.

WG recons there are three classes of mods -

  • ones that offer no benefits
    • E.g. ui changes
  • Ones that offer unfair enhancements
    • Aim bots, tundra
    • These are banned
  • Ones that offer fair enhancements
    • These are allowed
    • These may get added to the game officially

Obviously WG now recon that DWT falls into this later category.

 

Personally, I think it looks ugly, and I don't need it to help distinguish tanks.

I don't really think that it confers a significant advantage to use it though, beyond making up for a shortfall in someone's visual acuity.

 

Outside of proper competition, i don't really see why this mod can't be used.

If you need it then fine its no big deal, I think the one that makes damaged tracks white is the dodgy one as it makes tracked tanks very obvious.

I downloaded it from WG official site, and It's a boon to me, so I keep it.

You people with decent eyesight, just spare a thought for those of us who don't have that, and give thanks for it. ;)

Lol, I used to (until she found out) describe my wife as a "visual contraceptive".  One look was enough to put you off.

I imagine your wife to be like Miranda from that Red Dwarf golfing scene :teethhappy:

If you don't watch Red Dwarf then you won't have a clue what I'm talking about!

I don't really get that excuse. How does a mod like that help with bad eyesight? It doesn't change the contrast, lighting or similar variables in order to provide better contours, it just changes two very special details that help in very special cases.

That would be like glasses that only work when you look at other people's shoes...

 

And what about people with shaky hands? Let them use an  aimbot?

If it is from the official mod portal then it is kosher and I'm afraid your opinion or mine on the matter counts for nothing.

This really really should be banned.  I don;t care what the official opinion is.  Certain things are hard to see by design, and yes you will get caught out of you have poor eyesight, so what, next you'll be telling me it's unfair that blind people aren't allowed a driving licence.

 

And the safeshot mod, that should be banned too.

 

That's my opinion anyway but I also thought over target markers and minimap mods were a clear cheat.:(

Obviously. WG's opinion has more weight than ours, but that doesn't mean that they are right.

Agreed, simply because of the irritating message.
