Steiner's Turret/Gun mods.

These mods are made to let you keep your favorite look of tanks while still allowing you to research and upgrade your tank fully. Using the mods in no way alter game play or tank stats, all they do is change the visuals of the tank from your perspective. A word of caution though, since all tanks you see of the type will use the mod you might over/under estimate an enemy as you can no longer see how upgraded they are just by looks. The mods doesn't affects skins in any way so you can still use your favorite one with the modded tank.
To use my mods just replace the existing files in the normal\lod0 folder of your tank with the files supplied in the archive, the default path for tanks are:C:\Games\World_of_Tanks_closed_Beta\res\vehicles\<nationality>\<tank>

Please make sure to back-up your original files before replacing them with the ones I supply!

Good man, thank you! This upgrade turret is the worst eye-sore in the game. Even Dark Helmet would decline to put this on his Pz4.

It doesn't alter your models, only which modules are shown instead of what you're using.

You should do this for the Panther, for the original turret.

Also the pershing's real turret looks much better than the upgraded one.

It's for the Tier V med. make sure you put the files in the normal\lod0 sub directory overwriting the files there.
If WoT is running while you do it you need to select another tank and then go back to your tank to see the change.

Well im trying to do the T29 upgrade turret, the one with the blocks on the sides, on top of a t30, because i love that turret XD

I just don't know how to go about doing it. Of course its a visual only mod.

This is the single best mod in this game.  That said, I'd like to see this mod extended to the German 3000 class of tanks too.  The upgraded turrets aren't quite as silly as it is on the PzIV, but it's close.

In what sense doesn't they work? Are you sure you're replacing the correct files?
I know some tanks had bits redesigned so those parts might need to be reinstalled, but it's no reason it shouldn't work.

Is there goin to be a update for the panther mod?

I have now the L100 on it and this mod is a bit "bugged". I still see the standart turret but with the l100 on it....the gun is hanging in the air. So i had to replace the new files with the old ones.
Would be great if theres coming a update for it!
