I've heard there is, but I don't know much more than that.

If your talking about the tank skins that highlight where the engine, ammo rack, etc, and crew are, then your a super noob. And i dont like people who have to be cheap to actually do well. -___-

<tries to remember or find the quote>... <fails>
But something like...

"Every time someone downloads a hitskin mod, i kick a kitten. Do you not like kittens?"

And due to the wonders of the collective internet memory...

"For every hitbox skin downloaded i punch a baby, do you hate babies...?"

Thank you both... :) Kittens / babies... you'd have to need a serious crutch to wish that upon any cute little creature.

After hearing all the negative complaints, along with my own negative views about them, I decided to give them a try to see for myself exactly what the deal with hitboxes were.  Two weeks of trial and I honestly can say that they don't make much difference at all.  After two weeks I found myself largely ignoring the hitboxes.  I'm glad the update came soon after (7.1.1?), removing all custom skins, and introducing the res_mod folder, so I didn't have to bother looking at them anymore.

If you think they are an unfair advantage, I strongly suggest you give them a try for a couple of weeks.  You'll find they're really not worth worrying about. I am more concerned about gold rounds, than hitbox skins.

I ran hitbox skins for awhile after 7.0. It helped to learn where the weak spots were - but I could only get a good look during the count-in.

While battle was going on, I couldn't see much of anything given the ranges.

Haven't run one for awhile, but I am considering getting it again as I am running more often in Tier VIII-X battles...

Don't worry, you don't at all sound like a wife beater.

Indeed, as the devs can't make them illegal without effectively preventing the entire skinning practice, there is nothing stopping people doing so. I guess there will always be people that feel they need this sort of advantage.

Luckily there are plenty of places where this information can be sought that don't involve getting an advantage in game. So if your integrity has issues with such things, look elsewhere...

http://www.wotdb.info/ has info for most upper tier tanks under the 'Vulnerability' section, and there is that wire drawing site (link anyone?) that will show you where all the critical bits are on the tanks. Good luck in any event, whichever way you go.
