0.9.22.0.x Update Information

Published by:

 Latest update 2/14/2018 – 9:30 PM PST  .. Updates and information are listed below…

KISS 0.9.22.0.x UPDATES

IMPORTANT: Please note the new “packaging”. KISS AIO is one download.  If you want the Options, they are another download.  This reduces download size for those that just want standard without changes.

NOTICE: If updating from an older version, please DELETE all the old files first, then install new files.  This is especially true in the World of Tanks/mods directory.  You will get an error if there is a duplicate, or when you go into battle, you will not have an interface.

Take a look at Bug Reports-Changes in the top menu.  I have posted information on how to make configuration changes in KISS, as well as a place for comments or bug reports in a central location.

Let me know if you find any other issues.

Latest Updates

2/14/2018 – Updated KISS AIO and KISS XVM to 0.9.22.0.1 and XVM 7.4.1

2/11/2018 – KISS AIO and KISS XVM, adjusted the color blind colors

2/7/2018 – Updated the following:

PM:

  • KISS AIO – deleted some unnecessary files, updated ekspoint WN8 EFF mod, tested to make sure everything was working

AM:

  • KISS AIO and XVM to XVM 7.4.0
  • Custom Icons – fixed Strv S1 to be premium

2/6/2018 – Updated the following or 0.9.22.0 upcoming update

  • KISS AIO with XVM
  • KISS AIO Options
  • KISS XVM
  • Contour Icons (9 styles)
  • Custom Icons – made several changes in how this loads.  So now you can install or uninstall various options to get the desired interface you want.

I have tested “most” of this in Common Test, but not everything.  Just let me know if there are issues. I am not playing WoT near as much as I used to, mostly to test mods and updates.  I will continue to keep KISS AIO and XVM updated, but probably not going to add additional mods for WoT.

The Chinese Aircraft skins come revised to country of origin and need the scripts files installed to work properly.  For example, the Hawk III is configured to resemble the aircraft from the USS Saratoga.

Custom Skins and Remodel Updates

Published by:

 Latest update 1/15/2018 , see finding aids and update information below.

Acknowledgement

Most of the remodels are not entirely mine, rather they are swaps of modules from other modders to form the specific combination or look.  These come from parts and pieces of remodels by  much more accomplished modders, including: milkym4n, Avalon, foxerfit, Desyatnik_Pansy, TheFalkonett, Historical Remodelling Project, goodman12, professor, Wollolo, deh0mbre, Yamayan, and HiBan.

I compile them to get a working model without an script changes, then do a custom skin repaint to add camo and some detail to the model skin.

Information

For download go to the Grandpa’s Custom Skins page or the Modifications and Crew page

Also check on the  Yandex Disk  and/or my thread on NA forums

Check out Grandpa’s You Tube channel for quick looks at the mods

DEX Project Mods Pack Installer

Published by:

I am always looking for things that improve the game and test a few that look interesting.

I downloaded and installed the DEX Project Mods Pack Installer for a trial and am pleasantly impressed.

This allowed you to install XVM and configure the all or most of teh options to get the look you want.  Also contains a huge amount of mods you can install and configure. High recommended.

DEX Project Website

Think its in french so use google translater

I am going to stop including the KISS AIO No XVM in the next update.  Not many using it and it is sometimes a pain to update.  This would be a good substitute if you are using the No XVM

News and Upcoming Features

Published by:

First news is that my ISP attempted to make my site more secure and locked everyone out for a day or so, apologies.

Next item is about World of Warplanes 2.0. I have been playing this edition for a while now and find it very enjoyable.  Much better than the initial release, which in my option sucked.  You will start seeing some WoWP mods appearing here in the near future. Have also added a menu item to help find them.

As for World of Tanks.  I am working on a couple of different projects right now.

  • Reworking the carousel icons to improve the camo and make special tanks and premium tanks in a different color
  • Reworking some of the standard custom skins with new camo.  This will make them more compatible with the new WG custom paint features and not interfere with it.
  • Reworking the stats in the hangar from XVM to make them more meaningful.
  • Then I will resume doing some remodels as I get the opportunity.

11/13/2017 – Grandpa’s Audio Mod.  The latest update broke this and I have been working to figure out how to get it working in the new format.  I finally figured most of it out, but while learning, I was able to knock together a new mod.

Grandpa’s Audio Mods

Grandpa’s Voice Mod

This is my original audio mod with various voices including:

  • Duke Nukem,
  • Team Fortress,
  • Left 4 Dead,
  • some female voices.
  • Gun reloaded (up, batter up)

Grandpa’s Music Mod

Examples of Sounds in the Music Mod

This is a conversion of Noble Platoon’s Music Mod into the current format.  This mod was one of my favorites and I have been wanting to convert it over for years, and finally figured out how.

It does the following:

  • Replaces the in battle music with sounds of combat.  Planes flying overhead, machine gun fir, explosions, etc
  • Replaces the music n the hangar with music from the 1940’s
  • Replaces the music for Victory (Churchill, FDR, or Patton speech)
  • Replaces the music for Draw (Churchill or Patton speech)
  • Replaces the music for Defeat (Hitler speech)
  • Intro music (before a battle) is a selection of WWII swing music and patriotic marches.  Selections are 1 minute to 1.5 minutes in length and may intrude on batle for the first 30 seconds or so.

Grandpa’s Notification Mod – replaces notification sounds for following:

  • Ally Base Capture
  • Enemy Base Capture
  • Sixth Sense (from game menu you can select 2 variants or the user defined)
  • Ally killed
  • Countdown timers

INSTALLATION:

  • For the Music Mod ONLY – Copy/move the audioww folder from the music_mod_only folder in the archive (zip) to the res_mods/x.x.x folder, where x.x.x is the current game version
  • For Voice Mod ONLY – Copy/move the audioww folder from the voice_mod_only folder in the archive (zip) to the res_mods/x.x.x folder, where x.x.x is the current game version
  • For Notification Mod ONLY – Copy/move the audioww folder from the notification_only folder in the archive (zip) to the res_mods/x.x.x folder, where x.x.x is the current game version
  • For all audio mods – Copy/move the audioww folder from the combo_voice_music folder in the archive (zip) to the res_mods/x.x.x folder, where x.x.x is the current game version

Gray Crash Skins

Gray Crash Skins, for Improved and Standard Graphics. Includes 2 choices, crash skins for entire tank w/o tracks to be gray, or white tracks only

INSTALLATION:

  • Simple method: Copy/Move the <vehicle name>.wotmod file from the archive (zip) to the World of Tanks/mods/x.x.x folder, where x.x.x is current game version
  • Better method: Create a folder in the World of Tanks/mods/x.x.x folder, where x.x.x is current game version, named vehicles.  Then move the <vehicle name>.wotmod file from the archive (zip) into the that vehicles folder.  This keeps things a little more organized.
  • Caution: Only one choice per tank will work, moving more that one choice will cause WoT to error out on loading
