Someone posted this video on reddit showing this mod.... ( I have nothing to do with the video. )  I've heard rumors about this mod, but haven't actually seen it before.

Anyone know the legality of this mod? If its legal ( And I'm guessing its probably not. ) where can you get it, again, only if its not against the rules.

Is there a mod which will flip the minimap 180 degrees? I hate spawning at the top of the map, I always turn right when I should be turning left :Smile_ohmy:

shws a line on your minimap in the direction your aiming, great for shooting at tanks you cant see but are lit and close to a known spot so you can kill em blind lol.

Unfortunatly the minimap.swf is tied into the xvmconf on this mod. Engiands XVM conf have very small text (turret markers) and is hard to see/read in game. Also the minimap has large blocky Icons and text too large an the TD Icons are the same as the SPG icons(square).

If I remove the XVMCONF and use Aslains that is easier to read, the laser pointer goes away and I like the laser pointer.

You can get the red laser minimap without anything else, to add to the above. Seek and you shall find. I am not home, or I would provide the link.

you can adjust the font size and scale of the icons in the xvm cfg under "minimap", you can even change the icons etc to what ever you want
i have purple icons for arty and scouts so i can pin point them right away

I have that already, but it wont show location of last know position of tanks.

I tried replacing a segment in Engiands XVMCONF with a segment from Aslains XCONF but it failed. I'm too hooked on ASLAIN's XVMCONF to switch over.

Why do TD's show up as squares in the Engiand Mod  even when using full replacement of his flash files?

Got the last known enemy position to work last night.  Kind of cool.  I tweaked the color a bit so they show up just a little more.
You might have to hand edit your config file and add a line for 'lastenemy' to the minimap and a 'lastenemy' color setting.  Sorry at work don't remember the exact lines.  Basically just copy one of the similar lines and change the tag to lastenemy.  Don't forget to put a comma at the end of the previous entry, the xml file won't parse correctly - took me about 15 minutes to figure this out.  Another way, search for wot engiand and get his config and you can find the lines and add them in to your config.

I suspect that is caused when you install Locastan's then install XVM's minimap without uninstalling Locastan's first. I have removed all Locastan's files (except for hd minimap files) and there is no more TD's looking like SPG on the minimap, at least for now :)

Thanks Aslain, that was the case. I deleted locstans files.

I got the icons soretd out.

All I need now is:
  • Get your XVMCONF tiered.

  • The laser pointer

  • Smaller text and icons

  • And Locstans central enlarged minimap at press of the CTRL key.

  • An easy to edit XML file for the minimap only.

When I edit the minimap.swf with SWIX to change the Icon sizes, the game crashes during battle loading.

If Aslain, Engiand, and Locstan got together they would make the ultimate minimap mod.
