Nice work locastan. Can you get onto the test server and update for the two new maps? I've been using your original hi-res source for ATC images and also like these mini-maps.

For those of you who want better ATC resolution, feel free to use this gamepack ID: ZV8IE3 - images courtesy of locastan, hosted from Netherlands.


ed.

Created a new game pack (import ID: 3ETBXC) for 7.2 and included all of the camera angles. There are 282 images in the set, along with 10 symbols for representing the various tank classes.

If anyone just wants to browse the images they can be found here: http://mywotmaps.imgur.com

Loca is there anyway to make the grid lines a little more bolder?

I thought about it, but as you still need two PCs to get into a training room, setting up two test installations on different PCs that are useless once 7.2 goes to masses is not worth the time consumed. I will get right down to it as soon as 7.2 gets out ofc.

I think there are some minimap style mods out there to do that. I found this per google, but I think there are more:
http://www.guildport...TopicID=9780862

You can use any of those, as the grid is only layered above the minimaps.


On topic: I just noticed I forgot to make Fishermans Bay. Will correct that and update the Mod asap. Sorry for the inconvenience.  :Smile_harp:

FIXED. Plz redownload the package. :)

Just one question, does this mode recognizes platoon mates on mini map?

Why shouldn't it? It only changes the image in the background of your minimap to a more accurate map. All other things are unchanged and as they appear normally ingame. But if you don't see your mate in orange on the normal minimap, then you won't see him with this either. In this case I suggest you check if anything went wrong with your wot installation.

Yup, my mates are fine and orange on the minimap. But I must admit that I don't see them anymore when they're dead. :D

I just did the minimaps for the version 7.2, so we have them ready when it goes live in a few weeks. I was worried that I would not be able to them because of the client changes but I nailed it.  :D

If anyone wants to take them for a spin on the 7.2 Common test server take this mod:

Let me know if you notice something wrong or strange about them.  :Smile_honoring:

I was only asking because a while ago I downloaded a very nice animated mini map mod, but it failed to show platoon mates in different colour then others and it bothered me because I'm used to seeing them in orange. :)
Very nice mod.

Very nice mod.

Minimap animated to give better view of where you're tank is looking removes the platoon colors, this mod doesn't though

i don't get it. what should that mod bring? the minimap is much too big.

it's a higher res map so you can see things alot better, i like my map big so i can see what's where, it's very helpful for SPG play too..
