I posted this a while back, after the initial mod ban wave, but I feel like now is a good time to reiterate as you have taken a more active approach to the forums.

 

WG makes a list of acceptable mods. These mods come are made by community members; the developers do not need to intervene. Community members are able to add mods to this official list, on one condition—that each mod is demonstrated and tested to WG employees, who will verify that it is a legal mod and not a cheat.

 

All players will then be able to access the official list of WG-approved mods, which is the only allowed source for mods; the installation of any mod that is not included in the list results in an immediate and permanent ban. This system allows for the modding community to exist without fear for players using cheats. 

 

Thank you for listening.

If you have less than 5000 battles, it is NOT COOL to have a tier 10. Having a Tier 10 does not make you good. If you think you're good, you probably aren't.

No mods - period.

If that's the case, then it's a good thing they are banned. I think I recall one players saying they wanted a mod that had better sounds for engines or something. What a waste of time.

I like my sound and skin mods
I haven't found a good signature, and this is probably a placeholder. But I like anime and sleep, and unlike most people, I can shoot tanks in any game mode reasonably well.

The problem is with mods is some folks make module hitskins or transparent buildings/bushes etc.  

   Modifications of the files is a slippperly slope that some will use for advantages.  

 

I still the best method is for WG to hold contests for skins and sounds. 

  Reward players for winning items - and add to game for gold.

If WG would update the gun firing sounds, I wouldn't want mods to begin with. The 75mm's remind me of a golf course.

I can barely hear the game over my music so the sounds don't bother me.

No it probably means focus on the game the sound doesn't matter.

Even when I can hear the game, the sounds don't bother me.  I'd rather they spend more time on other things.

The sound mattered enough that WG updated the loading music.

Mods are generally used to change the aesthetic features of the game, such as tank skins and gun sounds. Most of the modding community (myself included) don't endorse mods that actually do provide an advantage of some kind, like module hitskins or X-Ray vision (which is now impossible to achieve without landing yourself an instant and irrevocable perma-ban). 

 

There's a Discord community server that houses lots of different mods and modders. Go have a chat with them, maybe they can learn you a thing or two. :)

Blitz Forums' resident Leopard PT A main.

I have discovered the glory of the Tiger 1. 

He who types many stupid essays and boasts about bad Leopard PT A stats.

I'm probably one of the only players in the game with over 5,500 WN8 in a Tier 1 tank. If that's not the most useless achievement ever I dunno what is.

HE does more damage than AP... in loopy land.
