This mod DISABLES the option to to DISMISS a crew member from the popup/context menu when you right-click on the crew member's icon.

When you install this mod, you will only be able to dismiss a crew member from the barracks.

 

I want to install this mod

Great!

  1. Download the zip file from here:
  2. Close WoWP if it is running
  3. Unzip the file to C:\Games\World_of_Warplanes\res_mods\{current version}
  4. You should now have the file: C:\Games\World_of_Warplanes\res_mods\{current version}\gui\flash\crew.swf
  5. Launch WoWP

 

I want to dismiss a crew member in a plane

To dismiss a crew member that is assigned to an aircraft

  1. Send the crew member to the barracks
  2. Go to the barracks
  3. Dismiss the crew member using the "Dismiss" button

 

I want to dismiss a crew member in a plane; but my barracks are full

To dismiss your crew member from a plane and your barracks are full,

  1. Close WoWP if it is running
  2. Delete the crew.swf file from the C:\Games\World_of_Warplanes\res_mods\{current version}\gui\flash folder
  3. Launch WoWP (the dismiss option will now be enabled in the context menu)
  4. Dismiss your crew member
  5. Close WoWP
  6. Re-install Pilot Dismissal Mod

 

Does this mod work with other mods?

I don't know. Tell me if you find problems.

@Modders, this is a modification to gui/flash/crew.swf file in gui.pkg.

 

Can I include this in my mod installer?

You betcha.

 

Updates:

[05/24/2015] Initial version for WoWP 1.8.1. Please send me a PM or post any issues to this thread.

[09/20/2015] Added download link from Google Docs because Chrome now blocks downloads from OneDrive.

[01/19/2016] Updated instructions to remove references to specific game version.

Works great, just what I have been waiting for.

 

Found a bug!

You're welcome! But hey, at least it gave me an opportunity to work on my WoWP New Year's Resolution:

I'd like to make a few mods for this game. It's something I fiddled with several months ago but never got into deep enough to go anywhere with it.

Works great.  Thank you very much, I'm very grateful for this since WG/Persha have declined to fix this obvious UI fault even though we've complained about it mightily.

 

Congratulations sir, and well done.

This happens to me frequently in the current version of the game and I do not run any mods. I have to switch to another plane with a rear gunner, open up that menu, then switch back to the plane that was having problems and re-try.

Should be pinned. Considering how often people mistakenly press this button and permanently losing their pilots including all the hard earned exp.
