I just can't take the stupid anymore

 

After a long history of active resistance against mods, I'm installing Aslain's

 

What do you recommend in the package?

 

And, how do I make changes after it's installed?

I recommend not installing it, but if you do don't say "GG" or "loss" or anything like that, or you will A, get hate. Or B, get told by intellectuals to uninstall it

Best thing is to change the 6th sense icon to boobs.

Crew Skill Informer -- I don't know how many times I roll into battle and forget exactly which crew I have in a premium.  It also shows your equipment.

BattleHits -- post match you can see where you actually were hit and where you actually shot the red tanks.  If I put another HEAT round into a drive sprocket expecting damage...

Play around with the damage logs to see what you like.

First, ignore Vulcan Spectre.

 

Second, i'd say go easy at first.  Aslain's presents and extensive list of mods, many of which deal with the same things.  You have XVM and non-XVM options available in some cases.  For some of the mods, downloads can be considerable, keep that in mind especially if you decide to use XVM which updates frequently.  Bottom line, you can always add on later.

 

Tips: Once you d'loaded a given version of the ModPack, you can install, uninstall (by unchecking options) as much as you like until you have what you want...at least till the next ModPack version comes out.  Aslain's is cross-checked with Wargaming for "legality" but you should not assume such certifications by WG are forever. Sometimes a mod offered will subsequently be disallowed.

I've often wondered about Aslain's modpack, and use of mods in general.  I've usually used Solo's mod pack in the past, but over the last 4 or 5 months I've gone without them and couldn't be happier

If it has a mod to eliminate stupid I've never seen it. In game the two I really don't like playing without are a white reticle and all the view range circles. Also, coloured icons and hit/damage logs, still have safe shot, saves me from wasting a shot sometimes. Most of the stuff I use is in the garage.

My top things to mod:

 

1. Use Aslain's icon.  I simply cannot stand the terrible WoT icons for tanks.

2. Auxlium's auto camo return.  It will save you tons of gold.

3. Auxlium's auto equip return.  XVM also has it, but Auxlium's auto camo can fail if you use XVM's auto equip return.

4. Use XVM's auto crew return.

 

Those are the most important ones.  The rest is up to you:

 

1. If you are annoyed by all the explosions, smokes, etc, you can disable these.

In garage clock, Server reticle, Easy crew swap, equip swap, Battle hits.

Thats the only things I really check on Aslain modpack, cannot be bothered to install anything else

Thank you all for those recommendations

 

THE one reticle I want, cannot find anywhere, and wish someone could put it together, the M60A3 TTS reticle

 

Not looking for the thermal picture, just the reticle, in neon-green, though a contrast-toggle would be nice.

You don’t have to install XVM with Aslain’s, I generally just use the garage mods and the auto-aim thing.

How do I make changes once installed?

 

I already see a couple of things I don't like, after having done install and menu selections

You'll be sorry.  Vanilla is the only way to go.

Isn't "the auto-aim thing" a hack?

It's definitely information overload - the most useful item right now is the border-marker


Need to turn a couple of other things off, which I haven't figured-out yet - I'm not a tech geek, by any means

Not in this package, no - it is WG Approved, on the WG Mod website

 

Fact, I was quite surprised to see an option for White Wrecks

Most of Aslains is clutter, but I like 6 color XVM, hit point pool, Yasenkrasen session stats. Disabled most of the other stuff.

Mods are great. Anyone who doesnt use them is missing out due to their own ignorance regarding XVM.

Their loss!!

 

Crew changing alone is worth it. A lot of visual aids and color coding to make things easier to read on the fly and in the garage.

Just check stuff out. You can always uninstall things or change it in a couple minutes

Every time I download Aslain's mod kit it breaks my game. I don't know why, but it does. I would like to have it.
