Grandpa’s KISS XVM Version

I believe in the Keep It Simple Stupid (KISS) approach, therefore I like to keep my Battle Interface relatively simple and uncluttered.  To some, my approach seems even more cluttered, with hit logs for who hit me, and hit logs for who I hit, but in the area surrounding my tank, I keep the clutter down. So this is the Battle Interface I use.

The current version is for:

  • Game Version: 0.9.15.2
  • XVM Version: 6.4.4

Notice:

  • This page contains information on the KISS XVM Versions.  See KISS Battle Interface for information on the All-In-Ones
  • Review this entire page for information on XVM options
  • Download the XVM Configuration of your choice (see options below). Install it in the res_mods directory
  • Go to the XVM MOD site and Activate Statistics. (Log in upper right corner, then Activate Statistics button will show)

KISS XVM

KISS XVM Configuration 

Installation

  • After download, copy the res_mods directory in the archive to your World of Tanks game folder. Or to do it manually, copy the following from the res_mods archive folder to the appropriate folder in res_mods in your game directory.  There are three sub-directories in res_mods.
    • x.x.x where x.x.x is the game version
    • configs = xvm configurations, KISS configurations are in configs/xvm/arasgrandpa
    • mods = xvm applications and resource files, including docs
  • Install the XVM Symbol.ttf, Dynamic, DamageLog, and NDO font, to do this highlight with your cursor and press the right mouse button. The pop-up menu will have a selection to Install, click that and install the font. These fonts are used by the OTM, HitLog, and minimap mod to display vehicle types
  • Go to XVMMOD.COM and activate statistics

Other changes, for example to Color Blind:

  • Open the res_mods\configs\xvm\grandpa\Alternative Settings\Color Blind
  • Copy all the files (colors.xc, markers.xc, minimap.xc) into the res_mods/configs/xvm/grandpa folder
  • In the in-game menu (Esc->Setting) click the Color Blind box
  • The Color Blind option does the following:
    • Changes colors to color blind enabled colors
    • Reverts back to in game OTM markers instead of KISS XVM markers
    • Reverts back to in game minimap settings instead of KISS XVM colors.  You need to turn ON the minimap options in Main->Settings to get the circles and labels

Effective 0.9.14, KISS XVM turns OFF the standard in game minimap labels, lines and circles.  It uses the KISS configuration and colors for these elements.  To use the in game standard minimap elements, copy the file minimap.xc from res_mods/configs/xvm/Alternative Settings/WG_minimap to res_mods/configs/xvm/grandpa

DISCLAIMER

I make, modify, compile, these mods for my own personal in game use. They change the game interface to look like I want it to look. I place them here for others to download and use if they so desire. They are NOT “one size fits all” and will not please everyone. If you like them use them, if not, delete them. You are free to customize or modify any of them, its your interface make it like you want. But DO NOT ask me to customize them specifically for you, or ask for details on how to customize them. If you are familiar with mods and xml, you can probably figure it out. I will attempt to correct bug fixes in the mods, as soon as practical.




Skin Installation

Skin Installation

There are two methods to install skins, if using Curse.com the best and simplest is to use the Curse client (V5).  It will install the skin in the correct location.  Just select your skin from the Curse mod menu and select install, its that easy. The second way is the manual method and the one used if downloading directly from this website.

The detailed description on how to manually installation and change a custom skins has moved to Grandpa’s Custom Skin Installation

WoWP Content Mod

WoWP Content Mod
  • Goes with new hangar and other hangars in the sanya_ferrari hangar mod.I call it “Lipstick on a pig”.  Actually it just dresses up the hangar scenery for the new hurrican hangar. If you are using this hangar it also dresses up the other hangars.  I have repainted the objects shown on the hangar scene to make them more visible or to make them more realistic.
    • All scenery planes use Hawkeye’s historic skins
    • Added camo to tents, etc
    • Retouched the hangar paint, brick, etc
    • enhanced other scenery objects

M-18 Hellcat with Crew (Multiple Options)

USA M-18 Hellcat with Crew, multiple versions

This download contains multiple options of the M-18 Hellcat with Crew.  ONLY one (1) option can be used, if you add multiple options you will get an error on loading.

  • Turret with crew is from an older mod by the Historical Mods Project
  • The hull with “junk” on the front is a remodel by Deshombre, without junk is standard hull
  • Deshombre Version 2 is with junk and turret with all crew inside.

INSTALLATION:

  • Simple method: Copy/Move the <vehicle name>.wotmod file from the archive (zip) to the World of Tanks/mods/x.x.x folder, where x.x.x is current game version
  • Better method: Create a folder in the World of Tanks/mods/x.x.x folder, where x.x.x is current game version, named vehicles.  Then move the <vehicle name>.wotmod file from the archive (zip) into the that vehicles folder.  This keeps things a little more organized.
  • Caution: Only one choice will work, moving more that one choice will cause WoT to error out on loading
