Graphic Changes and Effects
|Improved Vehicle Movement Physics and Improved Sounds||The work on Improving the Vehicle Movement Physics and the Sounds has come to its final stage.
In terms of the Super Test, there will be final tests conducted before the release of the Common Test of Version 9.14. You’ll be able to find out more details about the changes on the portal a little later.
|Vehicle draw distance and spotting range on minimap||The minimap has been supplemented with circles to show the vehicle draw distance, the maximum spotting range and the player’s current spotting range. The spotting range circle depends on many factors that affect the value of the vehicle’s view range (set equipment like Coated Optics / Binocular Telescope, crew skills / perks, consumables, etc.).
The opportunity to switch on/off draw distance display and spotting range circles has also been added to the settings.
|Improved mechanics of activating First Aid Kit and Repair Kit||Changed the logic of using Small Repair Kits and Small First Aid Kits. Now, if the consumable is used when there is just one damaged module/injured crew member, there will be no need to manually choose the module/crew member for repair/aid. The repair/treatment in that case will be done automatically.|
|Simplified vehicle module research for beginners||To simplify the process of familiarising new players to the game, the research system for Tiers I and II has been changed. Tier I Vehicles will have just one module available for research – a gun. Tier II vehicles will get the opportunity to research one module of each type (engine, gun, suspension, radio, turret).|
|Goal-setting Personal Missions (Manoeuvres) for Tiers IV-V||Beginners will receive special goal-setting personal missions, that are intended to introduce the game specifics of different vehicle types in World of Tanks.|
New vehicles for testing:
T25 Pilot Number 1
leKpz M 41 90 mm
Bat.-Châtillon 25 t AP (Seb: TAP Mascot pls)
Sentinel AC IE2 IV
