Latest update 9/22/2017, see finding aids and update information below.

How to Find Downloads
Following are links to Remodel and Custom Skins pages by Nation, were pages are finished, and to YandexDisk  when no page yet exists.

Remodels are stored by Nation and Custom Skins are stored by Nation/Type (Class).

Individual Remodels and Custom Skins by Nation.

NOTICE

I realize some of you may not appreciate my camo or color choices. So in the future I will try to include the paint.net (pdn) files in the upload.  You will need to go into the wotmod file and copy them out of there, but that is not too difficult. Then you can use paint.net to remove camo or change skin colors.

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

Download Update

Published by:

Almost finished reorganizing all the downloads and moving them to a more organized directory.  So things may be a little less screwy.

  1.  I still use the Download Manager, these are the posts that show the green DOWNLOAD button.  I put a new remodel into the Download Database then link to it via a Post to make it easier to find.  I am moving all Remodels and Skins to single vehicle downloads.
  2. Try the YandexDisk Download area for the latest Remodels and Custom Skins.. Remodels are organized by nation and just the nation name is for the remodel area. Custom Skins are organized by nation and tyrpe, for example “american_skins/heavy”. I have moved the old downloads of entire vehicle types to Posts for each nation and type.  These posts link to the Yandex Disk area containing the download for that nation/type.
  3.  If all else fails, try Grandpa’s Download Directory Viewer, but CAUTION here, some of the downloads are old and may be out of date…

Good luck and happy hunting…

0.9.19 Updates

Published by:

NOTICE

KISS (0.9.19 UPDATES): 

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.  As I convert the older KISS files to the new wotmod format, I may change file names or include different files within the container.  You will get an error if there is a duplicate, or when you go into battle, you will not have an interface.

All mods are working in 0.9.19.1.2

Let me know if you find any other issues.

I made some configuration changes in 0.9.19.  This includes bringing back PMOD to use for some things I was doing in XVM.  That resulted in a small XVM change.  The interface will look only slightly different. The changes help me configure two version XVM and No XVM and keep the look and feel close and the changes on a revision small.

Here is a view of XVM and other KISS Mods.

0.9.19.1.2 Updates

KISS AIO uses Option 1 of the Damage Log as the default. So WG in game settings need to be:

option1

option1_screenshot

You can switch to the other options using the files in Option/damage_log located inside the archive (zip) file

The other options are:

Option 2 – Partial WG – this is good when using a mix of XVM and WG settings

option2

option2_screenshot

option3

option3_screenshot

KISS XVM, now with standard and Really Simple configuration.  See below for options after 0.9.16

  1. When using KISS AIO and KISS XVM you need to make some changes to the Damage Log. KISS AIO comes with Damage Log, Option 1 as the default.  After installing KISS XVM, got to Options/damge_log in the KISS AIO archive (.zip) and copy/move the files from Option2/res_mods/configs/DamageLog to res_mods/configs/DamageLog of the game.
  2. Another option is to leave Option 1 default files in place and then go into res_mods/configs/xvm/grandpa/battleLabelsTemplates.xc and change “enabled”: true, to false under hitlog.

0.9.18 Common Test Report

Published by:

The good news is that the KISS AIO XVM version is working great in CT.  So far the only thing I have lost is the round damage panel.  I do have a couple of new damage panels working to replace it or as a substitute while I get the Zayaz round panel fixed.

KISS AIO No XVM has a few more issues, but nothing major.  The hitlog without XVM is broken, but the damage log is working fine.

I have skins for the new Tier 10 Light Tanks… I will be posting them in a few days, here are some pics

XVM Version 6.4.6.3-dev Screenshot

10/15/2016 – Updated KISS Crosshairs V2, Harpoon, White Crash skins

10/9/2016 – Updated Grandpa’s Audio, reduced volume and added multiple sixth sense options

  • I updated KISS AIO and since I only used two features of PMOD, I have replaced it with two options PMOD or No PMOD. You can use either option, BUT you must install the option of your choice after installing KISS AIO.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
  • Download the archive (zip), move/copy the res_mods folder in the archive into the game folder
  • In the Options folder within the archive (zip), select either PMOD or No PMOD options
    • If PMOD, copy/move the scripts folder into the res_mods/x.x.x folder, where x.x.x is the current game version
    • If No PMOD, copy the res_mods folder into the game folder
    • Either option adds after session stats and sniper zoom.  PMOD contains addition features not used by KISS and is for those that are used to the “older” version of KISS AIO
  • Then install either KISS XVM or NO XVM from below

10/8/2016 – Updated

  • Damage Panels with National Images, Americas, Europe, Other.  Added repair timer for modules
  • Grandpa’s Voices Mod, finally got my old voice mod working in 0.9.16.  Has voices from Duke Nukem, Minnions, Team Fortress, Left 4 Dead and some female voices. Includes gun reloaded notification

10/7/2016 PM – Following updated:

  • KISS AIO – updated no fog, max plane.
  • KISS XVM – updated to XVM 6.4.6.2

10/7/2016 – Following updated

  • KISS XVM – updated to make configuration change to DamageLog/Option2 for using XVM HitLog, please see link below to make WG in game settings for new features.

WG made a lot of changes to the interface in 0.9.16.  As a result, there are numerous options that can impact which mods you may want to use.  This is especially true in KISS AIO and KISS XVM. I have posted some new instructions in KISS AIO and XVM Updates to assist in determining which configuration changes you may want to make.

10/6/2016 – since 0.9.16 went live, KISS has been crashing in XVM.  Took me awhile to narrow it down as KISS AIO worked fine without XVM and XVM worked fine without KISS AIO.  Finally discovered it was the Premium Hangar mod that was causing teh failure.  So the new KISS AIO is without the hangar mod.  If you hve the mod from Oct 4 and don’t want to re download, delete res_mods/0.9.16/spaces, system, and content to get rid of the hangar mod. New upload has a working Premium for Normal hangar mod.

  • KISS AIO – updated hangar mod, updated PMOD to 23.1, added Consumable Buttons mod, updated Damage Log mod
  • KISS XVM – updated to KISS 6.4.6.1
