I have searched around for a contour icons pack that aligns with my "maximalist" or "more info is better" philosophy, and failed to find any except Pogs' (outdated) and Ashbane's (also outdated) icon packs.

 

As such, I have taken the liberty to revive Ashbane's contour icons pack for use in 1.4.0.1. Click the links below to see a detailed preview.

 

VR.HP (Clear) (view range, HPturret armourgun penetration - gun damagehull armour)
VR.R (Clear) (view range, gun reload timeturret armourgun penetration - gun damagehull armour)

 

Tank types:

Yellow - light tanks
Green - medium tanks
Brown - heavy tanks
Blue - tank destroyers
Red - artillery

 

Downloads: https://mega.nz/#F!m8xQ0SLR!VZ9vNWsEhpIJh93_9jMNJQ

 

Installation: Simply extract to World of Tanks mods folder. For me, it is "C:\Games\World_of_Tanks\mods\". Keep in mind that XVM needs to be set to disable icon mirroring. Note that World_of_Tanks\res_mods\1.4.0.1\gui\maps\icons\vehicle\contour and World_of_Tanks\res_mods\1.4.0.1\gui\flash\atlases must be empty.

 

All credits go to Ashbane for making a brilliant contour icon mod, and to the creator of Tank Icon Maker for making an also-brilliant utility.

I have small request, please send me (or attach in the OP) that contour icons with all atlases in png. I don't like dds, due to lossy compression.

It is done.

 

Please let me know if this is your preferred format for future releases.

Thanks. To me personaly the best way is if you simply provide it as it is directly from TIM export (don't delete atlas png, leave them there, preserve the full path).

 

ps. there was also the other popular variant: VR.HP maybe you could release it along with VRR. It's less popular but if it's not much of work...

Due to the nature of this icon pack, I used several custom fonts and data tables to make it. Does TIM require you to have these fonts and data tables on your PC? I will include them in my next release if you want a TIM export.

 

I will consider remaking the clear variants as well as the VR.HP variant. They will be available here if and when I release them.

200219: Restored 3 other variants: VR.R clear, VR.HP non-clear, VR.HP clear. Changed tank name colour for non-premium tanks to be closer to the original by Ashbane.
