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.
