Basically, I've just downloaded a pair of remodel mods and I have a good 14 more waiting to be downloaded once I suss this crap out, but up to now I've had no luck with getting these remodels to work.

Googling is absolutely hopeless, there's one video, and I don't speak German nor see enough in the video to just guess what he's doing  :Smile_mellow:

Can anyone help out here?

all mods go in C:\Games\World_of_Tanks\res_mods\0.8.3


download a full aiomod (all in one) it saves alot of time trying to figure out why one mod makes an old one stop working.. aiomods have a large amount of tweaks/edits already in them.

i have a new one called gods-eye you can download n try if ya like.. there are also good ones by roughneck, and cbl and sirmax (alot more but i though of those names first)

I tried there, but the instructions I found are for skins, not remodels :(

An aiomod?  :Smile_ohmy:

Are these programs that install the mods for me or am I missing the point here?  :Smile_sad:

However, when I do put my mods anywhere in that folder for my M4A3E8 remodel, they fail to work in-game. They're DDS files as is, if this helps at all  :Smile_sad:

if they are just dds files, they are not remodels, they are just skins of the current models. the correrct folder set your looking for would look something like

World_of_Tanks>>res_mods>>0.8.4>>vehicles>>(COUNTRY IE american)>>(TANKNAME IE AO6_M4A3E8_Sherman)>>YOURFILESHERE

Now that file structure i used base template and put in the IE (example) the correct folder name for the E8 sherman you are trying to put in. If you want to know the correct folder name for the tank you are trying to use "skins or remodels" for you can easily open the vehicle pkg in the res folder using something like winzip or 7zip or even winrar. It will show you the correct file structure you would require in order to make your vehicle skins work. Provided they were inside the vehicles folder in the current version folder for the WOT game. I know this all seems a bit technical, but it is about the best way i personally can explain it to you.

H8M3's are simply .rar files that you can unzip than insert.

However there are multiple AIOMOD's that DO use installers, such as mine, however as far as I am aware, I am the only active installer based AIOMOD on NA server,
I know personally that others can be found on both Russian & EU forums.

Mine can be found at this forum topic, and comes with a complete installer: http://forum.worldof...ler-86-build-7/

be aware that some of the models have been re-worked in 0.8.6 and the older re-models may in fact crash your game at very in-opportune times.

i had crashes in 0.8.5 with one of the stug remodels and at least one other i don't recall atm.

always install remodels one at a time and test in a game/replay/training room using that particular tank to avoid having to troubleshoot later.
