Until recently, I'd barely played WoT in three or four years, but since I've been tanking over the past couple months (and watching my WN8 plummet while shaking off the thick rust), I've noticed that some tank names have changed since I first made their icons.  Spurred by seeing that the Crusader light had become a medium, and by today's micropatch 1.5.1.2, I decided to update a few others, as well:

 

Pz III A is now Pz III E

Pz III is now Pz III J

AMX 30 PT is now AMX 30

 

If anyone else notices icons that need updating, please let me know.

 

[NOTE: Some of my icons purposely do not jibe precisely with WoT names.  For instance, what WoT calls the King Tiger C, I call the Tiger II C to be consistent with the Tiger II (and to save space on the icon).]

Ha, I just noticed that while playing and made the fix, which is now posted.

 

When and why was the tier switched?  Will those who bought it during Beta, as I did, get a refund for the tier drop, since we bought a Tier 6?

 

Haha, no refund. It's WG after all. ;)

It got added again and rebalanced a bit with the "Black Market" feature abouth 2 (?) months ago I think. Not sure if it got the lower Tier earlier than that. But that's how I got it and I have to say, it's quite a beast and lots of fun to play. :playing:

 

Thanks for the update BTW. :honoring:

I added icons for the new Homefront mode, plus an icon for the TL-1 LPC.  As of now, don't expect anything more than icons being green (allied) and red (enemy) in Homefront.

Thanks for this mod Panzerschiffer!  What do you think of coloring the numbers of Premium/Reward tanks gold but leave everything else the same?

I'm not the originator of this mod.  I took it over a few years [wow--7 years now] ago after genevie and c25xe abandoned it and the game.  Genevie's style was making the borders gold, so I stuck with it.  To me, it's just as recognizable and serves the purpose, so I'll continue with the tradition.  Man1aq, who actually copied this mod and made a couple of changes, uses gold lettering if you want to try his.

 

For the icon mod I created for World of Warships (https://forum.worldofwarships.com/topic/68159-0810x-historical-ensigns-contour-icons/), I do use gold lettering, but the background is clear aside from the flag, so there are no borders to color.

 

Speaking of national identification, when WoT started, there wasn't any real need to differentiate the tanks based on country, since there weren't all that many and everyone knew the tanks anyway.  With all the new additions over the years, though, I've been toying with adding to these icons the national logo that each tank sports.  I haven't decided where to place it.  Perhaps, faded & behind the tier number?  I'd need to experiment.

 

Does anyone know where the files containing those national emblems are located?
