Anyone else feel a little moment of disorientation when zooming out?  

 

Seriously, why could they not just add a simple simple zoom out further feature?

Do you mean like one of those extra zoom out mods? I use one of those, it's pretty nice.

No, I use that one too.  But the Mods aren'y ready yet.   

 

It was added, it's called Tactical Vision, or something like that, when you zoom out (mouse wheel) it starts to zoom you out like the Mod, but then does this little "bloop" and you can no longer see your own tank.  So you get this brief moment of "where am I".  The check box is in General Settings.  There is also a Commander Vision, which zooms out a little further like the Mod, I think...anyway.  Haven't played with it enough yet.

Interesting.

The new zoom in and out sucks for SPGs, I mean they ould double shell damage and it still would suck. Move around a map, hit G again cause they think it's a good idea to go into eye in the sky mode.

 

For real imaginary tanks it makes little difference.

There's two modes IIRC:

-Tactical View

-Commander View

 

For whatever reason both are enabled by default, or that was the case on the CT. I believe Tactical View is the more aerial view directly above your tank, while Commander View is a more normal zoom-out function. You should be able to disable them in the Settings.

I turned all that zoom out stuff off.  Makes it impossible for me drive and switch views effectively.

Anybody know how to disable this view for the arty but keep it in place for tanks? Seeing it happen in arty makes me think not a single person at wargaming bothered even playing an arty with these changes. That and it makes me dizzy.

I turned it off in the Settings.

 

Been using a scroll mouse forever. I can even set it to click when gaming and not a free wheel.

Yeah, that was a bit off-putting.  I don't worry about it too much, I just avoid scrolling back hard and it's fine.  Another "New" feature I might use from time to time.  

 

I will say, there have been times when I wish I could zoom out a bit more in Arcade View.  This gives me that, so... bonus, I guess?

 

I have to ask this, though:  Is there a Way I can TURN OFF those little Health Bar Circles on every tank on the mini-map?  THAT is just a bit too cartoony for my tastes and I haven't figured out which feature it takes to shut them off.  I tried a few things in the Mini-map, Notifications and even under Markers, but so far, no can do.

 

If you know the answer to that one, I'd really appreciate it.  Got a field full of Oreos in Red and Green and it looks distracting as all get out.

It's the tactical view that does the little bloopy thing as you zoom out.  It really is hideous, cant even see your own tank most of the times you use it.

Try "Settings>General".  On the right side, about half way down you'll see "Show vehicle XP in Team Panels" and "Show vehicle XP on minimap". Change those from "Always" to "Upon pressing Alt".  I'm not seeing the health bar circles on the minimap or the team list and I think that's where I turned them off.

That's the one!  Thanks, Sparky!  Omicron also PMd me with a 'go look in this part' message that helped me find it.  With all the new things, I guess my eyes glazed over a bit.  Saw it this morning and wondered -- "Machine Gun Jubblies, baby, how'd I miss those?"

 

At my low speed of 6fps, even things WG tells me on the "hover-over" panels that 'won't affect performance' DO.  I got a couple "out of memory, please restart game" and my hiccups, hesitations and hangups were most annoying.  Hoping I can shut off most of the new visuals and maybe gain an fps or two.

 

 

Thanks again!

The tactical view is useful but it is glitchy. I hope they can make it something that is turned on by a key stroke.
