On lower resolution screens the interface is too big and too cluttered and you can see the minimap better on the higher resolution screens for example 1080p, Wargaming should really do something about this so that players with lower resolution screens can see the minimap and the interface better

 

1920x1080                            1600x900                             1366x768

WG should buy everyone a new monitor and system which can run the game at higher resolutions?

No they should add an option to make the interface smaller and more compact

But you are complaining about it being smaller and more compact?

 

You can't build a mansion in a six foot back yard.

Maybe there should be more customisation but there are some things you can do yourself to reduce the problem.

Some from the game settings others would need a mod for best results.

 

The team panel display can be set to 4 or 5 width settings each showing more or less information alt tab cycles through them.

There should also be a transparency setting.

The minimal can be resized using - and = keys  and of course M turns it on and off.

 

With a mod you can choose a custom damage panel some are quite small.

You can also mod the minimap to go full screen while you hold down a key, so you can have it set very small and use a key to bring it up when needed.

 

seems Aslains mod will solve the problem completely

If a game needs a mod to fix an issue that means that the developers did a bad job with the game

Some truth there I mean I really hate some of the colour choices they use not so much in the game but in the garage where you have menus for mission requirements.

They love keeping to the theme of various shaded of grey and brown and for my aging eyes its not great.

Light grey text on darker grey background isnt great.

I get around it by pressing windows and + keys to magnify the screen.

 

My point is  the people who are developing the game are probably quite young with good eyesight.

They work in an office that's probably well lit and with the latest PCs and monitors.

Its very unlikely at any stage of the development that they  take their product and run it on a 10 year old laptop with a 14 inch screen and see what it looks like though maybe they should.

 

Without any mods we can reduce the width of the team lists and reduce the size of the minimap or turn it off and on again.

That just leaves the damage and chat boxes and I don't know of anything to alter those without a mod.

They said that they don't forget the players with older PCs
