It's about player panels spotted / spotted - hidden tanks indicators. Was using modified Bones XVM setup ( no longer updated ) where I set special yellow dot for UNSPOTTED EVER tanks in battle. It was very helpfull: I think standard XVM is very wrong showing spotted tanks and spooted-lost spotted enemy's indicators. Mini map do job of this much better, but most important information is lacking : who get never spotted in battle and can ambush me? I can see missing bulbs and try figure it that way, but honestly is like doing it wrong, reverse way and slow.



This screenshot is from battle end where enemy got only 2 tanks, Lowe almost dead, and never spotted Scorpion G, probably on full health.


Another screenshot is made on battle start; no detected enemy tanks yet, so all got yellow "never spotted" dots:



I sadly forget how I removed standard XVM spotted / spotted-hidden icons and added this awesome "never spotted" yellow dot. If you can explain how to make it back plz share knowledge.

It's not colors.xc , it's




// Text for {{spotted}} macro.
    // Текст для макроса {{spotted}}.
    "spotted": {
      "neverSeen": "<font face='xvm' size='14' color='#ffbb00'>&#x44;</font>",
      "lost": "",
      "spotted": "",
      "dead": "",
      "neverSeen_arty": "<font face='xvm' size='14' color='#ffbb00'>&#x2d;</font>",
      "lost_arty": "",
      "spotted_arty": "",
      "dead_arty": ""


Anyway thx, for try. I found old files in archive and after some reading and comparing got it done.
