Hello Tankers,

I read a request for a way to display a tactical panel, without the need for window multitasking.

So today I'd like to share my translation of Radems Tactical Tablet MK3 on the russian forum:

Screenshot (High resolution minimap version MK3):
Spoiler                     

You can devise team tactics for certain maps and share the outcome with the members of your team by simply creating and sharing the code (copy paste).

Your team members are able to view the TT in garage by default and ingame by simply holding CTRL (ok you'll see the button in the top left cornern at first, but once you click it, TT is open).

Download MOD MK3 (high resolution minimap version):
>>DOWNLOAD<<

(Or use Version 2 without star button (uses ctrl+space to show/hide tablet): Download)


Some additional info on using this:

Basic useage:
You select the map you want to strategize in the first place. Use the drop down menu by clicking on the word "Map" or the two arrow buttons to its left and right to swap maps.

Add markers to the map by clicking the "Create" button next to the markers section heading. Play around a bit with settings, like color position type etc. You can also conveniently drag and drop the marker to any place on the map, adjust the view direction (rotation) and have it settle by clicking on the map. You can select if tanks are on your or the enemy team with the checkbox next to "On own team?" of course you can always change the marker later on by clicking on it on the map.

The Team Composition section is for informational purpose on your team. It will not display or count the enemy tanks.

On Mapgrid K0 there is a little brown button, when you click it, you can toggle mapgrid, viewdirections, text and markers on or off to your liking. (Only visible when loading a shared tactic!)

To share your battle tactic with your team mates, you can click on the "Create code to share" button.
You will get a string of mumbo-jumbo in the textfield below the Map. This contains all information you put on that map.

Click your cursor into the field below the map and press CTRL+A for selecting everything. The CTRL+C for copying it to clipboard. Share by pasting the code where you want (clanchat, clanforums, ICQ, Teamspeak, Skype whatever you guys normally use to communicate. The code always starts with = and ends with ¬¬.)

You can save your tactics by putting the code into notepad or similar text editor. Be sure to save and share the code as Unicode not ASCII or else it will corrupt! (We are working on this problem.)

To load a tactic from code, paste the code into the textfield below the Map and click the "Accept" button. If you have another tactic on screen by this time, you will be warned that this one is discarded. (It might be a good idea to click on the "Clear" button next to the textfield to wipe it prior to pasting code into there in case there is anything in the field that does not belong there.)

As always: Have Fun.  :honoring:

Updated to 8.6 with Satelite HD Minimap pictures. :smiles:

Hotkey: CTRL+Space to toggle show/hide the Tactical Tablet. :smiles:

So cool...thanks for sharing!  :Smile_great:

May I share this in the NA forum (copy/paste from you, giving credit)?

OK...need some help. I can get text to appear in the little window along the bottom of TT, but I cannot get it to appear on the map. Anyone figure out how? Thanks.

EDIT: And, I cannot figure out how to share the codes with my clan-mates. And, it does not seem to save the strategies that I make. Anyone else having better luck than me?

First, ofc. you can share with NA forum. The whole idea of translating it was to share it with all tankers out there. :)

I guess I should have prepared some better instructions on usage, but I was a bit tired yesterday after 4 hours of modding.  I will prepare a manual right away. :D

I definitely understand all the time and effort that we put into modding. I wish I weren't so dense, but I just can't figure this program out.  :(

Still no luck? I added a short manual to the OP. I think I addressed the main problems you had with it there. Also do not confuse the ingame minimap with the TT. TT button on top left in battle will only appear if you hold CTRL. Same as the tabled window itself once you opened it via said button while holding CTRL.

I am more than glad to answer any questions you have and assist you with your problems. It is definitely not a problem of being "dense". No one thinks that of you.  :Smile_honoring:

Actually, I knew the mechanics that you outlined, I just could not get it to work...until now. :Smile_harp:

The text you want to display on the map needs to be entered in the text box on the right hand side of the gui...not from the bottom. All is good now. BTW, I did not know about the click-n-drag feature...I was really frustrated with the multiple slider movements I had been using.  <_<

Thanks a bunch!!!

Glad that is sorted out.

The sliders are only for minor corrections at best, that's true. :)

Oh I am pretty sure they know about it, a it is as mentioned from the russian mod forum.
Perhaps they will introduce sth. like this later on but I think they have some more important things to do right now.

For randoms it is a bit difficult, as all you have is 25 seconds before the game start to come up with a tactic and additionally you cannot copy the shared tactic code string from the ingame battle chat afaik.

I recently learned that there might be a problem sharing the codes when the system platform that does facilitate the sharing does not know cyrilic symbols as they appear in the TT code generated.

We are working on this problem.

Working on it. I just finished the numbered base minimaps a few days ago. Stay tuned. :)
