Hey Tankers,

Let us know what you think of the new Customization features!  Full list of changes available here.
 

Patch Notes

 

Vehicle Customization System

  • The interface of the customization system was completely reworked.
  • Rental and permanent styles (that completely change the vehicle exterior) can be applied to Tier X vehicles and Tier VIII Premium vehicles. An entire style can be rented; separate customization elements are not available for rental.
  • The Rental styles can be rented for a particular number of battles (instead of days). The rental styles are available for vehicles of all tiers.
  • Paints can be applied to Tier X vehicles and Tier VIII Premium vehicles. Paints can be applied to 4 or 5 vehicle components (some vehicles do not have gun mantlets).
  • Camouflage patterns are now applied to three vehicle parts (for all vehicles). The camouflage stains can be scaled and the base color of some camouflage patterns can be changed. Important: To receive the concealment bonus, apply camouflage at least to the vehicle hull. If no camouflage is applied to the vehicle hull, no concealment bonus is provided.
  • The weathering effect (to make your vehicle look from sleek to aged) can be applied to Tier X vehicles and Tier VIII Premium vehicles. Low graphical settings may impede the quality of the effect!
  • Both historical and non-historical customization elements are available to players.
  • Display of the non-historical customization elements (for other players) can be disabled in the game settings.

A lot of the supposedly historical paints are over the top; like bright freaking red.

Also, I think all the emblems should be in the historical category. I earned and paid for several emblems that are now non-historical but a WoT logo emblem is suitable?

I'm really pissed that we can't get rid of the clown paint. Tell the devs please. Thanks Cabbage. Oh, and why can't we sell the stupid meathead emblems ?

You're going in the right direction . I would like three digit Turret and hull numerals in different national styles in the future.

From fully painted tier 2 tank that I've paid 25 gold (in discount) now I can paint three T10's hulls and therefore enjoy camouflage bonus. 

I can get camouflage bonus for every tank in garage just by splitting tier 2's camouflages to higher tiers.

 

Please explain better... this doesn't sound possible.

Again i will say this do not make changes without getting the community's thoughts on it. Yes there was the pts , but as I recall it was a test. Now it is in the game? "What happened to oh we are just testing it out guys, it's not going to be released in the game." Our community may be small, ut our players are vocal.

I have desert camouflage on Tier 2 Te-ke. I send to depot three parts of the camouflage (hull, turret, gun). Now I select let's say Type 4, select hull, apply desert camouflage. Done. 2 desert camouflages left in depot. Select Type 61 paint hull. Done. 1 camouflage left in depot. Select Type 5 Heavy, select hull, paint it with desert camo. All three tanks (type 4, type 5 , type 61) profit from increased camouflage from Te-ke.

I like being able to paint my tanks but yeah some of the "historical" paint is still a little too much (bright red. really?).

I'll also have to wait till it's moved down into lower tiers since I mostly have tier 6 tanks

But why do you believe it will work that way. This system does not work at tier 2 yet. Have you done this experiment by removing camo from one tier 8 premium and camoing the hulls of 3 tier ten tanks ? 

 

Anyone out there willing to try this ?

Bottom line, you get 9 pieces of camo now versus the 3 you got for 1 vehicle under the old system.  Since you only need apply the camo to the hull to get the bonus, you can in theory now deck out 3 tanks for the "price" of 1 old tank (across the 3 seasons).  This is my understanding of how it works (which could be wrong).  People who bought lots of camo and don't mind not having a barrel or turret un-painted are going to be laughing all the way to the proverbial bank.

 

Nothing wrong with this, but combine it with the fact that you can move camo around a nation's tanks freely (and again, maybe I'm wrong here, just going by what's been posted on the forums) and I'm not really sure what WG have gained from this system.  It doesn't seem to be a money maker for them.  I guess they're relying on people being lazy and/or overly zealous to customize their tanks (not an unreasonable assumption).  I assume it's not possible to create a mod that would transfer camo between tanks (that would totally kill their whole customization update).

 

As for the topic at hand, I don't have any feedback yet because I haven't had a chance to check it out, other than it's nothing that I'm going to wet myself in excitement over.  I don't really care, I just want my tanks that were camo'd, still to be camo'd.  It's not something I personally wanted (but I don't dismiss others might).  I personally have no desire for pink, highlighter marker yellow, or polka dot* tanks.

 

*Substitute for your own outlandish color scheme as required

Why are the muzzle brakes not changing color with the standard camo?
The Worn Paint One Effect and Worn Paint Two Effect, do they have to be purchased for each tank or is it a one time purchase for all tanks?

Hopefully, we will see this opened up to all tiers, because I want to show off my US Navy Pride with some blue and gold tanks.

I just moved permanent camo from tanks I don't play to tanks I do play...for...free. And then...and then....AND THEN....I sold some old camo I didn't like. Shut the front door.

I like the part where you can fiddle around with the base coat and pattern size.  Nicely done.

You are right. Some of the historical camo is freaking bright especially the german yellow-brown.

Was it intended to lock Personal Mission reward camo (Stug IV, T28 HTC, Object 260) behind a gold purchase or an oversight/bug?

 

The new system seems to allow only camo schemes of the "Rental Preset" variety to be purchased for credits, which is the same three camo schemes for every tank on each nation branch. The ability to pick different basic camo schemes like previous to the patch for credits previously seems to be locked behind gold now.

1 step forward 2 steps back.

 

The ability to sell emblems/inscriptions/camo is nice. (Also if youre gonna let us do this let us sell in bulk). (Also also let us sell special emblems like the tank hallow ones and the meathead ones).

 

The fact that emblems/inscriptions need to be purchased PER SEASON for each spot on the tank is not cool. The fact that using duplicate emblems or inscriptions requires you to purchase that emblem/inscription twice is not cool. (Meaning if you want to emblem up a 2 emblem tank for each season youre paying 50*6 (1 emblem for each slot in all 3 seasons)).

 

The emblem and inscription scheme needs to go back to the old way... they are no longer worth the gold you spend for them.

Love the new customization features, especially all the new base paints to try out. Even more than there were on the test server. Agreed with Avalon though.

The new camo system works fine at all tiers. You are confusing it with the customization paint system that is limited to tier 8 premium tanks and tier 10 tanks. 

 

I have also started rearranging all my camo. Pulling camo off of low tiers and putting them on the bodies of higher tier tanks.
