Can you figure out what the red circle is on the minimap below?

 

I'm trying out Aslain Modpack, enabling the XVM Minimap Circles mod on the minimap.

 

Red circle:

 

 

Current config (notice everything red is disabled):

I believe it's the maximum render distance (564m), not sure why it's displaying despite not enabling the option.

Nope, that's much further out, seen here with more circles enabled:

What gun do you use on the tank and what tank are you playing with?

Some guns have a max fire range of 400 meters, the inner read circle shows you the max range you gun can shoot the target, so if a tank is just outside of the inner red circle you cant hit him.

 

Best regards

Thanks, the screenshot was from playing a T-34 with the 57 mm ZiS-4 gun. As far as I can find out, its max range is 720 m (tanks.gg).

I have no clue what it is, but that red line isn't 720m away from you. Given the map size and your positioning you can see it's a bit more than 450 meters from you, my estimation would be about 475meters.

I know it isn't :-) I never related the 720 m to any red circle or anything on the minimap.

The 720 m is just specs taken from tanks.gg and was in response to the comment from nilsenth.

I'm starting to wonder if it's a bug - that the inner red circle is showing range for machinegun & SPG and it can't be turned off despite having a setting for just that.

Could it be radio range?

I took a look at the Aslain installer again, and it must be indicating range of machinegun and artillery, but apparently cannot be switched off... I dunno...:
