Why Vstab? Tank already has great gun handling. I'm using the equipment the reward gave me but going to be replacing the turbo with optics in the future.

There is no such thing as too much gun handling, reload speed, or view range.

You've done well, kiddo.

That's a mod iirc, to show where you should shoot to hit ammo rack/engine etc. It just overlays a skin onto all tanks, only the person with the mod can see it.

Just remember your gun calibers and you are golden, any tank with a 90mm gun or less is an auto bounce. Anything above is an auto pen.

Also, the turbocharger applies in siege mode which makes it very powerful equipment for those tanks.

Mods where the skins are edited are fine, but editing the 3D models so the outside is transparent and you can see the internal modules is banned.

Katamari Democracy posted:

Not at all. It's even included in Aslain's modpack which is checked and approved by Wargaming. The 3d xray mods are illegal.

There is a whole pile of Quality of life mods in Aslains that really should be in the base game because they offer a pretty stiff advantage. Particularly the one that persistently shows the last known positions on the mini map. It also shows all enemy tanks that have been spotted during the match, showing which ones are spotted right now, and which ones were not spotted by your team since the beginning of the round. That alone is a massive amount of information that can be easily used in mid game. Knowing that no tanks on the enemy team are unspotted, and the ones not currently spotted aren't on your flank? That means nearly guaranteeing it's safe to advance on the flank without surprises and removing the uncertainty of enemy positions. Priceless. Information is king.

Some of those mods are just too close to cheating.

I run mods that don't impact gameplay. Like the Battle Hits and Free Cam for replays.

If they are explicitly legal and in a developer approved modpack then I'm going to assume other people are using them. If other people are using them then I am just handicapping myself in a multiplayer game if I don't.

I don't see any reason to handicap myself that way.

I was attempting a joke on how it would be silly for a real tank to paint its weak spots on its camo, but I failed clearly.

I used those weakspot skins myself back in the day but these days I like my dumb stickers too much.

Yeah same, I used them for a bit, but then I realised that basically if you shoot a tank in the side of rear then you have a pretty high chance to hit either fuel tanks engine or ammo rack regardless of where you aim, I would rather make my Kranvaugn look like it has a smiley face.

This. It's literally just run the installer. It brings up a list of it's contents and you check the box in front of the ones you want to use, then it installs them all. Want to change mods? Just run the installer again.

The skins are of almost no usefulness, the mini map mods, zoom mods and tank information mods however are really useful.There is also one that tells you the exact thickness of the armor you are aiming at, but it doesn't account for angle or layered armor. It lets you see basically how green or yellow the armor is where you are aiming.

If it's the one I use it actually does account for angled armour, but it only shows the thickness of the outer layer for spaced armour. Useful information if you're using HEAT ammo.

I would not suggest to buy the T42. The only redeeming traits are the aim time and the premium ammo. I've only felt it really shine when I can be 100% hull down against other medium tanks or I press 2 and shoot lasers. If only I wasn't such a sucker for the 3D skins.

Do you like French auto-loaders or a solid heavy tank?

Whatever your first reaction is to that question, that's what you pick. I personally went for the Char because I love auto-loaders.
