Future releases

Posted on 18 CommentsPosted in Updates

End of February I posted a poll with the question if I should switch to using .wotmod files. You guys voted and we have a clear message here 🙂

Once 0.9.18 is released I will be converting all current mods to .wotmod files. The idea of just simply to drag&drop one single file instead of dozens of folders and files is pretty neat.


With 0.9.18 my Sheridan remodel for the T49 will be converted for use on the XM551 Sheridan and it will also receive a new 105mm gun model just like in the photo below

While the real life experimental tanks had issues with recoil while mounting the 105mm L7 on the Sheridan we will overlook this for the sake of making the tank look badass.


Just recently I posted a teaser of a T-90A. This is one of the War Thunder April Fool’s tanks which I am importing into World of Tanks. Some of you guessed on which tank it will be available. The remodel will be released for 3 tanks: T-62A, Objekt 140 and Objekt 430.

Also a little progress update. The remodel lost its banded tracks which have been replaced by actual track segments like you see on HD World of Tanks models. Here’s a preview:

To switch to .wotmod or not to switch, that’s the question.

Hello everyone!

You know how messy sometimes installing those remodels can get. Folders on top of folders everywhere and if you try to uninstall a mod/remodel you have to navigate through dozens of folders just to remove that one single file somewhere deep in your res_mods folder.

There is an alternative to installing mods and they are files called .wotmod. Basically you get the entire mod in one single file which is copied to your “World_of_Tanks\mods\0.9.17.1” folder. This makes managing different mods so much easier for the players.

Now my question is should I start distributing my remodels and skins as .wotmod files?

The upsides are easier management and installation for you guys but since everything is bundled in one file this would also mean that quick hotfixes require the mod to be re-uploaded completely. I’ve reduced file sizes already by not using lod1-4 models anymore and bundling only HD textures so the downside wouldn’t be much of an issue anyways.

I’ll let you decide.

Should I switch to using .wotmod files?

Most of them should theoretically work without updates although I would advise waiting for updated versions.

Remodels that once were SD but got their official HD model from Wargaming will be incompatible. For example the 59-16 and Type-64. Do not install older version remodels of those.
