News

I do modifications for World of Tanks as a hobby.  After playing World of Tanks for over 2 years, this gives me something to do in my spare time and makes the game less boring. I do appreciate any donations as they help defray my beer costs at the local brewpub.  If you like you can also gift me in World of Tanks, on NA server my nick is arasgrandpa, on EU server nick is Blackhawk1947, and on SEA server its Blackhawk69. I also travel a lot and am out of touch to answer questions, fix bugs, or respond rapidly. Have patience and I will get to your comments or bug fixes as soon as possible. Thanks for visiting.

This site consists mostly of modifications and custom skins for the electronic game World of Tanks. Browse around the site and hopefully find something you like and can use. I upload a lot of my mods to the Curse site and earn reward points when they are downloaded from there, so please visit the Curse site and download from it if you wish. If you are seeking assistance with a modification or a skin, please use the comments for that page. Also any recommendations or comments in general are welcome.

    hi Arasgrandpa,

      Must have posted wrong icons then, I’ll check names and repost if necessary

      New icons posted on website, be a day or two to get them on Curse.

    Hello Arasgrandpa,

    thanks for the fast updates.
    But a question: The gray crash Skin is 9.6 ready ?

    • arasgrandpa  says:

      Yes, posted that long ago when CT#1 came out…

      Let me know if issues, no 0.9.6 on NA yet and WG sometimes makes changes between last test and release

      • Budyx69  says:

        is o.k. work

  • vonAugust  says:

    Would it be possible to have a “collection” with only add of crew on the vehicles ? However, i hope that we can have your usual “crew and modification” updated for 9.6 as soon as possible. Thanks again for all what you do for us !

    • arasgrandpa  says:

      Not sure I understand what you want. Think it is download of just modifications with just crewmembers. Maybe, you can do same work, just do the downloads and don’t install the ones you don’t want.

      No need to update crew mods, unless they are for HD tanks, otherwise they work in 9.5 or 9.6. Just move the vehicles directory into 0.9.6 instead of 0.9.5. I’ll take a look at modifying the uploads

      See latest NEWS post for information on Crew Only downloads

  • Kassimila  says:

    I just attempted to install the kiss_standard_AIO, as well as the mma_xvm version. They both do the same thing, nothing but a black screen after you click play on the patcher.

    • arasgrandpa  says:

      I mistakenly left some 0.9.5 and XVM 5.5 files in the last upload. New upload in progress. The problem I am having is that 0.9.6 is NOT on NA yet and I am locked out of CT, so can’t fully test. This is the config that was working under CT#3, with XVM 6.0.0 dev. Don’t think there were many changes between that and 6.0.0 release, hopefully it was just the extra files.

  • vonAugust  says:

    Thanks for all that tremendous job !
    When the modification with crew will be updated or 9.6 ?

    • arasgrandpa  says:

      They either work or they don’t in 0.9.6, the only updating of crew mods I do is to remove them from the download when a tank moves to HD, unless its a quick fix, like the Hellcat.

  • budyx69  says:

    Hi, Arasgrandpa, can you create a second baracks icons with other background flag? the publication of historical flags here in Germany are problematic. Greetz Budyx69

    • arasgrandpa  says:

      I did an alternative flag model. It is at the bottom of the Custom Icons page. Just download and install it over the original custom icons. Must be installed over the original or all you will have is the barracks icons.

  • Agraven  says:

    Love your mods, Arasgrandpa. I have been using them for quite some time now. I was wondering if you have an plans to add the battle assistant mod to one of your packs, If not, can you tell me how to get it to work with your Standard pack?

    • arasgrandpa  says:

      Battle Assistant works fine with any of these mods. Just install it last. I have been using it for some time without any issues. Don’t usually include another mod that you can get off the web or that I don’t try to keep updated. Let me know if your having issues and what they might be.

  • budyx69  says:

    Hello arasgrandpa, thx for fast update to 9.5. I have a question: Have you the tech tree Tank icons without background color ?

    Budyx69

    • arasgrandpa  says:

      Just delete the folder res_mods/x.x.x/gui/maps/icons/vehicles/small and they revert to standard

      • Budyx69  says:

        thx for fast answer

      • budyx69  says:

        hi arasgrandpa, your advice worked, but the standart pictures are ugly. Best of all were your pictures without color background.

        • arasgrandpa  says:

          I’ll take a look to see how much trouble it is. I have toned down the background in the latest models, will upload them tomorrow and you can see if they work better.

    • arasgrandpa  says:

      Here is link to ones without backgrounds http://lotsastuff.info/wot/?p=1302

  • Budyx69  says:

    Hello Arasgrandpa, i missing under the Icons the new Premium Tank FURY. Thx Budyx69

    • arasgrandpa  says:

      See the page and for Styles 1-10 download the ALL ICONS for 11-15 you can get the individual icons. All are updated

  • Jim M  says:

    Under the Skins page, the download link for German Skins is bad – it points to Chinese

    • Jim M  says:

      Got it thru the downloads page

    • arasgrandpa  says:

      Thanks, will fix that..

  • Michael Lowery  says:

    I think I was mistaken about the p-mod I misunderstood what you meant by that. The box that appears in your results bar showing your compiled results for the session is what I was referring to, my apologies.

    • arasgrandpa  says:

      If your having issues with the Session Stats, one thing to try is delete the file res_mods/x.x.x/scripts/client/mods/PMOD/statisticCache.json it sometimes gets corrupted. Then start WoT.

  • Michael Lowery  says:

    Arasgrandpa,
    I am having difficult being able to see the p-mod and the damage indicator which shows who hit me, with what and for how much, as well as the zoom scope…I have deleted World of Tanks several times and also xvm…and your enhanced version as well, but still have the same issues. I have used your enhanced version for a few years now and this is the first time I have had problems, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    OldDoogan

    • arasgrandpa  says:

      Make sure you have the latest AIO. In a previous version I had the new P-MOD files and they conflict with.t the sights, so I reverted back to a previous version of P-MOD that works. You P-MOD.pyc file should be dated 6/26/2014.

  • Arasgrandpa  says:

    Some people were having trouble posting comments. My apologies, I hope that is fixed now. So comment away
