I've seen the vids of the weak spot skins to help learn the tanks but cant seem to find one here using search that isn't outdated.  Some people say they are banned, others say they are not.  Anyone know where to find one that has very easy to follow install instructions?

They are called "Hitskins"

Dowload the most recent version.  Place the folder titled "vehicles" in World of Tanks/res_mods
Restart Game
Done

Hope they are banned, I would ask for advise on where to hit the tank, usually someone will provide help.

You can't just ban Hitskins.  You would have to ban all of the skins.
Also WoT gives you a built in "where to shoot" meter on your cross hair.  Green = weak armor.  Yellow = moderate armor.  Red = heavy armor.

They're completely useless, its really easy to know where to shoot a tank, all it takes is common sense.
The game even tells you how likely you are to pen something.

ya i have learned a lot of them but my Church 3 has been having a tough time with the new British heavies and TDs thought this may help pinpoint the frontal weakspots since I can't seam to hit them ever.  Thanks

Click on the vehicle you want to find out where to hit, then vulnerability in the window that pops up a viola you now have weak spots shown to you with in game photos.

There is no folder called Vehicles in Res_Mods, Only a Floder named 0.8.7 containing a folder stating that this is used for WoT Mods, Should I put it there?
EDIT: Nvm read that wrong, thanks.

OR, people whom don't wish to cram their heads even more on crew/module locations for individual tanks, & whom instead use a skin for such. (& Don't even dare trying to blow this back on me, as I personally do *not* use them, as I like my remodels/reskins far more... I mean, who doesn't like a Type 59 converted T-80?)

Extract ONLY the "vehicles" folder to the res/mod folder. If you already have a 'vehicles" folder either c&p the FILES to the existing folder and sub-folder or "merge" them.

The Hit Skins mod didn't seem to work for me either,,, I had tried installing the -Vehicle folder - in both spots:- WoT/ res_mods   and WOT/ res_mods/0.87 folders. and still couldn't get it to work.
I did finally got it to work ,, by doing a clean WOT install ,, my problem was caused from  a previous Mod I had install
Also after reading  a bit further on the Mod site ,, it appears
the multi-coloured hit skins only show on a selected  few tanks ,, primarily the tanks on the  mid to upper tiers .... .
Even though it is limited, I have found this mod has gone a long ways in helping me locate the weak spots on the various tanks...
Good learning Mod for those that are still learning or don't get to play the game that often.
