Ok everyone, finally my Plane Icon mod is complete.


It took me awhile to get this working correctly because there was some files that are associated incorrectly. Which I have sent in bug report for but also I have found a way to modify those files so that all the planes are now represented correctly.


Pre-battle and In battle the Icons are correct and the mod pak for this already has the files to un-mirror the icons.


For Team Training the Icons are not spaced correctly when you assign players to each side, nothing can be done about this at this time.

Can you also make a version with just the aircraft name, such as the one made by Aslain here http://forum.worldof...2-upd-14092013/ ?

Was hoping to see a contour mod soon. Very nice.

That would be sweet if you ported Aslain's over to WoWP. I've been using his in WoT for a long time.

We need a minimap mod that shows you who/what is where and not just an icon.
Like the one Locastan made for wot.

I know what your talking about, but I do not think that the files allows this yet.  I know we can hit Alt and get the Types (GA, HF, LF, or CBF) but nothing to tell what kind of GA, HF, LF or CBF.

iirc, that mod needs an XVM config to actually work property.

Neat! This will be great for old players and new players alike... it took me weeks to be able to recognize all the planes by icon...

Totally different mod.
Locastan is the author. XVM has a different one.
XVM does have one, but Locastan's in better.

Soon, like in a 2 or 3 days.  Working on the USSR line now, last line that I need to complete and has the most planes.  But that is as long as I do not find some improper file referencing in game.  In 0.5.2 WG had the client link the P-51H to the P-51D Icon and the IL-40P to the IL-40 Icon.  Which with the default you would not really notice since the pictures are similar.

This looks great. Wondering if its going to be similar to Grepa Icon Mod that is being continued by others over on WoT,  similar contour icon, but includes stats such as view range, armor values and max pen and such. Not sure if this is possible with WoWP as I'm not sure what you would put for relevant info. But it looks really good.

Yes, its actually based off of Grepa style WoT Contour Mod, since I use that in WoT and love the design of it, so I used something similar to make mine here.

The one you see above is the old 0.5.2 one.  I am still updating the 0.5.3.2, which is when UK was added.  I have just the USSR line to finish, which is also the Nation that has the most planes.

Ok, I have finished this mod, but I can not Distribute this mod.  There is currently incorrect referencing of icons within the game, until WG gets this fixed this mod can not happen.

These are the bugged icons:

P36C showing P36
A6M1 showing A6M
I-5 ShKAS showing I-5
Bf 110C-6 showing Bf 110B
F2A-1 showing F2A
P-51H showing P-51D
Il-40P showing Il-40
