Ah, I do see that.. I glanced over that option. Thanks!
I would like to see XVM PNG Light's graphical icons (over tank markers) or similar HD icons in the pack.
I also like Vitiri's gold detector pack for icons in the hitlog.
You could even add more sub-options for the "I am Spotted" mod, 6.. 8... 10.. max? some people like it on.
Just throwing this out there, but seeing as you can make colored circles representing a players skill level, would it be possible to change the shapes according to skill base of each player? For instance, a skill system based off of shapes? circles = reds, triangles = yellow, square = green, pentagon = teal, etc .. which could represent a players skill in that particular tank, while the color inside is the typical win8 color scheme. That way instead of a two dot system, you could change it into a shape/dot system.. almost a badge-like system. Who has more corners? lol... But that might impossible or too complicated.
I also like the PNG's icons, and I even experimented with adding the icons to solo's config, but over time I realized that it only clutters up the interface and also I like simplicity. What I might do about PNG is either create an enhanced version of solo's xvm or just use the config provided by PNG Light.
As for the Vitri's I took a look and it looks nice haven't tested it, once I get to it I'll see what can be done.
For the Spotted mod. I don't have the source code to change it show 6, 8 or 10 it's only coded for 5, but I can talk to the Dev about adding that feature.
I really do like your idea of the shapes and colors, I haven't checked if I can link colors with shapes and If XVM supports it. I'll try raising this question on XVM forums and maybe get some tips there.

I tried to download and even disabled all virus programs like norton and even windows smartscreen and they still blocked it from installing.
Do you have a screen shot of what exact error you get.

Beautiful pack! I love the ability to get 1 simple mod pack, but still have easy adjustments.
I do have a couple questions/concerns though.
First, I have Solo's xvm, Jimbo's cross hairs, and Solo's tank details (when you are looking at an enemy), However, right in the middle of my aiming circle is a pink box, with the letters "PH" in dark writing. Any idea what adjustments I need to make to remove this?
Secondly, an issue I've had with XVM in general, do you know a possible way to show enemy player names above the tank, with out the alt key? This would greatly assist me when it comes to conversation for clan wars, tank company, and platoons.
Sorry, these are probably very noob comments, but I am horrible when it comes to computer knowledge.
Thank you for your help, and your beautiful modpack
The "PH" thingy is a bug in Jimbo's Crosshair someone already asked it here check first few pages,

Seems like the Micropatch also did something weird to Dark Agent Icons .
Might not be the micro-patch actually looks like XVM's problem. what XVM config are you using?

After trying a lot of mods, I'm using yours now and I love it. Especially your xvm config with the dots and bars.
I have one change I think I can make myself but don't know where/what to edit:
1. I'd like my hit damage on the target to be in yellow text and BIG instead of white text and small -- I find myself peering intently at the target after a shot trying to discern how effective I was. How would I change this myself? Edit: I discovered the xvm online editor, going to try this myself.
I have one issue that I am struggling with:
2. Using Jimbo's crosshairs and possibly others, I haven't tested them, or maybe it's not crosshairs but something else -- I find that most of the time the tank I'm targetting fails to "highlight" even though the reticle is on it. And/or the reticle itself does not light up. This is when *not* in sniper mode, sniper mode seems to be much better at highlighting. Since I play mostly mobile mediums, I am out of sniper mode a lot and I'm finding this very tough. Especially when trying to circle-strafe, I need the visual indication that my gun is on target. What might be causing this?
I have one request for the info panel:
3. Is it possible to make the info panel fade away or disappear after a few seconds? It just stays on the screen with the last tank I hovered over visible, which is a bit distracting at times.
Cheers for the good work!
I don't use Jimbo and I don't have the problem with highlighting. I'll check if he updated it.
For infopanel yes you can in res_mods\0.8.11\gui\scaleform\InfoPanel.xml using notepad++ change the 6 in everywhere to any time you want.

did you notice a new res mod folder 0.9.0 common test
Use the new 9.8 installer.Old one doesn't have a break for xvm which now is in the 9.0 testing.

Not sure if this idea will be a useful coin or what not, but someone had a modpack that added a lot of stuff, also has sound mods, hangar mods, etc, and see if you can somehow get some of those implemented into your solo mod pack, if whenever that'd be possible, that'd be great! modpack i am talking about is this: http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/334086-0811-omc-modpack-installer-last-updated-21032014/
As some of the mods on there are pretty solid as well, sorry if posting a link like that breaks rules or something
I like simplicity. That pack has just too much IMHO. Tell me which "exact" mods or options you think I should add and I'll do my best.
