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

 

Rerun the installer exe.  It remembers what you chose last time, so you can check or uncheck to make changes.  You can also back up the Aslains_Installer_Options.inf file before you make changes, and then copy it back into place if you want to revert to a previous set of choices.

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.

 

I use Aslain's for #1 and #4.  Except that on #1, I use Gandorf (spelling?) icons as I like the nationalistic flags and the bright icons (yellow for mediums, red for heavys, etc. that really helps my eyes).  I really should go for the auto camo and equipment but I am too lazy to dig in the options and besides, I like that about 95% of my tanks are fully equipped.

Agreed. For me Aslain's is mostly a way to keep Auxilium up to date. I think the only in-game mods I have running are a fancy periscope lens and the range circles on the minimap. Everything else is just to make the garage look pretty.

in garage stuff...hangar clock ,auto equip and auto crew return.color-change locks for bonds/gold/free exp, (for us drunk tankers). Battle Hits viewer (VERY useful) yasenkrasen session stats (WG dropped the ball on their version)larger multitier carousel (i bounce between 4 and 5 tiers),carousel tank icons with all the info(name escapes me).

some general Quality of Life gameplay things...Julies Voice Pack,10 second countdown timer for sixth sense,bright-colored cap circles ,extra wide colored map borders (my eyes suck), extra sniper zoom. there are so many that i use for my eyes/hand/ears. just start with a few as you say and work on variety as you get used to it. best thing...because of him being in diff time zone....after we (NA) patch his pack is almost always already done being properly updated.

I dont install or activate the XVM stats, just some of the mods.

eg: I cant stand Roman numerals: fixed! etc:

 

Show 6th sense for 10 seconds

Equip auto return (I do crew myself as needed. Camo return sounds cool)

Carousel 2 normal rows (way way better filtering)

Turn off info text / messages (turn off the stupid text overlays)

Carousel Stats by Debranded (not too much clutter, just enough info)

Vehicle Contour Icons > For XVM > Man1aq (easy to read and Arab numbers)

ATAC! (enemy prox warning)

AutoAim Indication > try to lock for 1.5 seconds (good for high ping)

FPS limiter > 60fps

Garage Appearance > Minimal

Textures and Models > Skins on Destroyed vehicles = Grey

 

Never toon with a vanilla, they are just time wasters.

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?

 

Noooooooo stay vanilla with all the cool kids!!!!  :-)

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

 

 

I am not ignorant of XVM. I ran XVM mods for a while but found that it wasn't worth how tilted I would get. In this case ignorance is bliss.

 

They should just ban it, as there is way too much toxicity in chat over the colors. Not to mention the folks who say "we are screwed" and then suicide or stop trying.

Hahaha. As opposed to the toxicity openly spew on the forums?

 

 

I just go directly to Alsain.com and click the direct download of XVM and his config. +1 on his icons.

My favorite things in it are the auto crew swapping and the health circles around the tanks in the mini map.

Aslain's is a terrific modpack with a very nice installer and I have used it for years. He has added so much over time that I agree it's almost information overload in the installer options. Some of the elements I use:

-XVM...duh!!!

-Scope shadow remover

-Additional zoom steps in sniper mode

-Zoom out mod

-OTM options

-Custom reticles

-Block shooting at allies and wrecks

-White dead tanks

-White damaged tracks

-Extended auto-aim indicator and auto-aim autolock

-Custom hit logs and damage logs

-Showing alive player count instead of frags

-Team HP pool

-Extra minimap range circles

-Vehicle HP circles on the minimap

-Almost all garage mods (multiline carousel; active reserves; extended installed equipment list; visible consumables inventory; auto return crew; etc)

-Session stats

-Disabling tree movement; clouds; fog

 

I don't use any of the sound effects, battle loading screens, or after battle results screens, but it's nice that they are there if someone wants them.

Does Aslains have in-game colored markers for where you are shot, my eyes aren’t to good and I have trouble seeing where the enemy has shot me while in-game?

OP, there are a few things you should be aware of now that you've installed a mod.

  1. It WILL break after ANY update, most patches, and many micro-patches. However, Aslain's is usually updated, for some of the basic stuff, within that first day. You just have to DL the new items and install them.
  2. YOU can actually cause yourself some issues with the mods. It's possible to install some mods that don't play well with each other. So, I recommend un-checking everything first and then ONLY check the things you know you want.
  3. If you ever start to notice some odd in-game issues, remember to fire the game up in SAFE MODE. This is the quickest way to determine if your mods are causes the issues.

How do you define toxicity on the forums? Is it when people disagree with you or just when they refute your fallacious arguments?

 

Asking for a friend.
