Is there a mod that shows who you've got spotted?  like to see a mod that puts a marker above the enemy tanks my tank has spotted.. anyone seen anything like that? Not sure what spotting information is written, so not even sure its possible currently. 

 

this would be really useful for lights in particular, but in general as well.

 

thanks

six sense tells me when IM spotted.. thats not what im looking for. I want to see who's spotted, IE, when i light a tank, id like to see a marker above it so i know im the one who lit it.

There is a configuration element to XVM that will indicated which enemy tanks your team has spotted, but I am not aware of any mods that will indicate specifically which tanks you yourself have spotted and I'm not aware of any mod that will indicate which tanks you yourself are currently spotting.  It is theoretically possible, but it seems unlikely to exists as spotting checks are conducted on the server side and then the server merely tells your client which enemies you can see.  Any mod that would provide this information would be more of an educated guess instead of providing significant certainty as to who spotted what.

it should be doable, as it knows what tanks have been damaged due to your spotting.  but i dont know of anyone having done it.  would be usfull though/

...Are you blind? It's already in the game! When you spot a tank a big, fat, shiny red marker appears over the tank. Jeez man, ever wondered what that *ding* sound was when you spotted a tank?!?!

the ding sound is when ANYONE spots a tank, first of all, even all the way across the map. More importantly, i want it to stay, This is a very interesting feature for light tanks.

 

ill refrain from retaliating to your insults other then to say, please learn the interface before degrading someone unwittingly.

My mod pack includes a nice XVM feature that tells you when anyone has spotted a enemy tank, and when they are no longer spotted....

No, the "I'm spotted" thing in chat is a "I'm spotted" mod, Google should likely bring you results.  It irritates me, so I haven't included it in my pack.  I removed the damage indicator in chat also because of the same.

Individual spotting damage is calculated by the server and then posted AFTER battle. therefore, its not provided to the client like your normal damage log. Simply put, the same is true regarding who/when you actually 'spot' an enemy tank.  

 

What you're asking for does not exist atm and I don't believe it is 'technically possible' at all, otherwise modders would've created this kind of thing long ago.

Ya....  I've been testing it....  and it seems a bit spammy.  I've reduced the spamming to simply the "I'm spotted" statement, but even it seems spammy.

 

Would the "Attention" notice that posts in chat and the ping that pings the minimap at the same time be better you think?

I tried that as well, and while it doesn't seem "as" bad, it's kinda spammy also.

The mod would be great, but because stupid tanks always stay invisible or not, and then you move again, it goes off again.

 

Suggestion to the Mod Dev's if they are reading.....!

 

Ii think what should be done is the notification should ONLY go off the very first time you've been spotted by a particular tank.  Then I think it wouldn't be good and useful.

But, as it is it goes off every spotting, so it's an irritation and not really helpful as intended.

 

Actually, I think now it should work simply when it's "first spotted" at all in the game.  Because even just once for a particular tank, every tank encountered, beep beep....  irritating still.
