By the time everyone reads this, most of the 1.3 updates should have been approved on WG mods. Everything has been uploaded and all of my mods are updated. Ive taken this time to retire 2 of them, the raised IS-7 machine gun and the T26E1-1 Super Pershing. Ive retired them just because I dont want to keep them updated. (Though eventually the IS-7 may return).
Anyway thats it for me until next month, when I'll be back to work on remodels and stuff. Enjoy your holidays and see you in the new year!
Ok guys. 1.3 is out. Things should work for the most part but youre gonna notice that emblems, MoEs, inscriptions, and clan icons arent appearing. I am aware. Everything needs to beupdated because WG shifted stuff around. Im gonna get to it and things should be done by tomorrow and approved on WGMods by the day after.
EDIT - 1518 hours pacific time: So updates are going to take a lot longer than I would like guys... WG has made some changes to how the game draws emblems and inscriptions... so I wont be able to make things reappear with out some pretty big changes and some help from a few friends... so updates may not appear for about a week or so (if not longer)... its a rather complicated explanation, just know that Im aware of things not working 100% and will fix them when I am able.
The time is almost upon us for a new patch. Rumors says the 13th or the 14th of this month. That means there will be updates appearing here. You guys pretty convincingly want the large decals added to my remodels, so once patch 1.3 drops I will be updating affected tanks with them. (There was a preliminary list in my last blog post).
Thats not all though, theres a new remodel undergoing review on WGMods right now. Its a remodel for the Tiger II, which I recently bought back and have been enjoying. Here it is:
The Pz. Befw. VIB Tiger II 'Faust' is an upgraded Tiger II, designed to serve as a command tank. As such the tank was given improved radios (thanks to TheFalkonett for allowing me to use his star antenna on this tank). In addition the tank has received upgraded range finding equipment and a longer 10,5cm l/70 main gun.
I had a great time making this remodel. When it goes live it should appear here:
... I hope... if it doesnt I'll update this link and the tanks page on this site.
In more general WoT news, the holiday event is starting up soon, meaning a festive garage and things to collect for cool camo styles and other things as well as the likely return of the Christmas loot boxes. So thats gonna be fun. (If you guys wanted to send some my way I wouldnt be opposed... :P But seriously, you dont have to).
Either way guys enjoy the holidays, because after 1.3 drops and I update for large decals I'll be taking time off from this for a month or so and just not doing anything, barring critical updates if something is uber broken. After that I'll come back and have something new hopefully.
Those of you who may have been paying attention to my WGMods page may have seen the Mk. 3 Caernarvon remodel already out there. If you havent you should go check it out, its pretty awesome.
I had originally intended to have another remodel completed before announcing it, but Im not quite happy with how the other one is turning out, so Im gonna hold off on it for now, and move on to something else, but in the mean time I figured I should announce the Action X.
As you can see from the pictures, it also includes support for the Royal Corps preset that came with the tank, so thats nice.
I figure I should also address the 1.3 large decals feature. Im not a huge fan of them and I dont really have the intent to support them on my remodels, but Im gonna leave that up to you guys. Are you interested in seeing the large decals on my remodels?
1.3 brings them to tier 8 premiums and tier 10 tanks, so this affects:
No real future news right now. I have plans, but Im not sure which ones will actually take shape... so, Im not going to mention them right now.
Well it took an extra day (because life), but the last of my mods are now updated for patch 1.2.0. This includes ALL of the permaskin removals and the Classic T71 Restoration. I also put together a AMX 13 57 GF removal as well, since I realized I didnt have one already. It'll be linked above in the menu with the rest of the permaskin removals.
With that, Im now going to go back to remodeling... Caernarvon Action X is up next, and then, depending on how I feel maybe the M41 90mm remodel I mentioned, but I may put that one off until the new chinese M41D premium gets put into the client so I can pull any cool bits from it (if applicable).
Thats all for now guys!
