IMPORTANT:

Starting with client version 0.9.3, this mod is no longer maintained by the author.



 

AFR is just a simple collection of mods that get rid of some of the very annoying "features" this game has to offer.

More information after the break.

 

 


 

Description:

Transparent Clan Logos:

This mod will make clan logos transparent for all tanks.

No more tiny icons messing up with your skins.

 

Transparent Nation Decals, Stickers & Inscriptions:

This mod will make all of the nation decals, stickers and inscriptions transparent.

 

Transparent Camouflage:

Plenty of these around, but have my own version, because why not.

Comes in both camo pattern variant, in case you want to make a particular camo pattern transparent, and in tank by tank format, in case you want to pick and choose what tanks have and don't have camo.

 

Silenced Spotting Sound:

This mod removes the "sonar" noise you get each time an enemy is spotted. (testing WOB content in WOT ftw)


Download:

[0.9.3] Silenced Spotting Sound (v1.2.4)

[0.9.3] Transparent Camouflage (by camo pattern) (v1.1.6)

[0.9.3] Transparent Camouflage (by tank) (v1.2.7)

[0.9.3] Transparent Clan Logos (v1.7.4)

[0.9.3] Transparent Nation Decals, Stickers & Inscriptions (v1.3.8)

[Download Link]


Install:

Make sure the client version folder (the one inside the res_mods) matches the current one (check inside the res_mods folder in your WOT main dir).

If there's no changes to the mods between client versions, odds are I did not rename that folder.

 

Then simply extract the res_mods folder contained within the archive into your WOT main directory.

 

You can also use JSGME, it's already packed accordingly.


Bug Reporting:

Sometimes I miss a few tanks, and that may cause your client to hang while loading the battle. I do apologise for this but we are all human, mistakes will happen eventually.

If you wish to help, enabling replays is a good way for me to figure out what tank is causing the issue.

 

If you client hangs while loading a battle, quit (or close it via the task manager). Once outside disable the mod, and reconnect.

Your client will load the battle as normal, and if you have replays enabled it will start recording the battle.

Once you're done, upload the replay to a file sharing website and send me the link.

 

How to tailor the Transparent Nation Decals, Stickers & Inscriptions mod to suit your needs::

Go to "{mod name here}\res_mods\0.9.3\gui\maps\vehicles\decals"

Here you will find DDS files and two folders, named player_stickers and inscriptions.

 The DDS files make the nation decals transparent.

 The stuff inside the inscriptions folder makes the ... yeah you guessed it, makes the inscriptions transparent.

 Take a wild guess as to what the player_stickers folder does.

If you want the original nation decals, just delete the DDS files. Same process applies to the player_stickers and inscriptions folders.

Mix and match depending on what you want.


Credits:

Thanks to llVIU, muphus, for lending a hand with updating the transparent clan logos.

 


 

 

Enjoy and have fun.

Picked up 2 vehicles who fell through the cracks and didn't have the icons disabled (Grille and Hummel).

Corrected now, and a new version has been uploaded.

Do you think it would be possible to replace the clan logo with something else rather than simply removing it.

What if i only wanted to remove a few particularly ugly logos?

Logos are stored by the server, so nope.
You can choose to have particular vehicles retain their clan logos, but you can't alter what logo shows up.

Yaaaaaaaaaaaa, it works for 7.5 (as it states in header post) but we all know with each & every update how mods can function. But just tested this & it does work, i had an earlier version of the mod & it didn't work, searched for the mod & seen it was updated for 7.5 & can confirm that it does indeed work.

Sadly this is the type of mod that needs to be updated every single freaking time the client changes.
I don't play WOT anymore, but I will keep updating it as long as humanly posible.

Very, especially if you run ALOT of custom skins which in my case i do. Very, very helpful mod.

Ok, it removed the clan logo from all my tanks except one, the M18 Hellcat. How come it didn't remove it from that one like it did with all the other ones???

Because odds are that in 200+ files I had to edit to "make it so", I missed one or two.
I'll look at the hellcat .xml tomorrow and post a fixed file when I do.

Didn't find anything wrong with the hellcat file.
Apart from you having another mod that edits the M18_Hellcat.xml file I do not know why you're still seeing a clan logo on it.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

.. Question

Sixth Sense:

Is there a way to ENABLE audio sounds for when it is triggered? And the icing for that cake, would there be a way to customize that sound?

Not really related to the topic but I'll bite.

Enable implies there is something there to begin with. There is not (last I checked, six sense has no audio clip tied to it)
Adding one would mean a lot of messing with game files, and its both something I don't have experience with and something that can be considered an intrusive modification.

True, but one of few threads I've seen that address any sounds other then the typical sound packs, Gun Sound or Motor Sound swaps. I'll have to dig more into the .swf files and see what I can drum up. I was curious to see what others might have noticed.

Thanks for the hard work, my skins are looking good again.
Do you know how to remove the country icons too?
