I think white tanks and safe shot are legal.Being able to see where enemy tanks are pointing via map is NOT legal.You will get banned for using that

The white dead tank mod has gone from legal, to illegal, and back to legal.  So I'd not trust it.  Dunno about safe shot, but I used it without issue before my switch to a vanilla client only.

 

The minimap direction indication is not a legal mod last I recall, but can't confirm that.

 

 

With WarGaming's lackluster clarity and claims of players getting banned for using mods from the portal, I'd be wary of using any mod, sadly.

All are legal, and are part of mod packs approved by WG.

two of them are illegal I think, and the other spews chat spam that's just annoying for teammates.

 

good rule of thumb:  if a mod gives you something you can't normally do or see with your own eyes in vanilla, don't use it.

there use to be a mod in aslians that you could see on the mini map the direction a tank is facing, its gone now so id render it illegal, tho white death tanks and safe shot is still legal

Thats not true dont give him bad advice, there are tons of legal mods that vanilla doesnt have, he is smart enough to ask, and thats a good sign

White dead tanks i believe are illegal now, just like any mod that makes any other destroyed environmental solid object stick out in some way are illegal(like destroyed train cars)

It's actually not removed it's been moved to the map section nearer to the end of his pack.  But per Tsavo's earlier post I don't use it nor any of the other spotting indicators because I'm pretty sure they're banned even though Aslain's is on the mod portal.

All White dead Tanks gives you an advantage to seeing the other outline of any tank using  the dead tank for cover. It was supposed to be Illegal.

Safe shot gives you the ability of not shooting friendly tanks.  It was supposed to be legal.

Every mod is innocent until proven guilty. 

Beside jokes, WG used to be on the side of presumption of illegal for most of mods before. It seemed to change their position now. They are on presumption of legal now.

They must have been out of idea how to improve WoT. Now, they have to steal ideas from mods and they are encouraging new mods now I think.

Like all mods they may or may not be legal depending on some or none the following. Moon spots, Sun spots, high tide, if the particular moderator got laid, EU or NA server, voodoo dolls, Ouija boards  or if premium shop sales are down.

It's understandable.  WG announced it was a thing and then failed to put in anywhere conspicuous on their website.   Typical 2 step forward 1 step back.
