This mod will run on its own if you are not using a mod pack.  Install in res_mods according to the file path (see enclosed Read Me).

 

To ensure that you're using the latest icons of this mod if you downloaded it through Aslain's mod pack, be sure that only the newest DLC file for this mod is in the World_of_Warships/Aslains_DLC_cache folder.  Simply delete any older versions of ContourIcons_Panzerschiffer from the folder.

 

As of Patch 7.4, the Ribbon version of this mod to fix this problem

is no longer needed, since Wargaming added counters for potential and spotting damage.  To make the counters fit, the player panels were moved down, thus allowing room for three rows of battle ribbons.

 

I mentioned it in this thread back on 6/2/16, but here it is again, for those wondering why the ensigns in my icons are not all the same size: Every country has different ratios for ensigns and other national flags, so I use the appropriate ratios, though based on a uniform hoist height of 22 pixels for all ensigns.  For instance, the Poles have the widest ratio at 2.1:1, followed by the Brits at 2:1, while the Red Chinese have the squarest ensign.

 

D_Inbound on the European server is using my icons for a cool new mod he just finished: a Randomized Ship Selector.  You can read all about it at the link:

Randomized Ship Selector

 

The rental Tier 10 ships for Clan Wars have gold lettering so that they can be differentiated from those that have been earned.

 

I also make an icon mod for World of Tanks, which you can find here.

File added to center destroyer icons correctly in the compact carousel in port (icons of other ship classes need no fix):

Dock Variant: If you would like my icons to appear in the compact carousel in port (not compatible with the Better Ship Icons in Compact Carousel mod, or with any other mod that alters the dock.xml file):

Basic Variant: If you use the default carousel in port or are using another mod for icons in the compact carousel in port:

If you are using a mod pack, just install the icons over those in the pack.

This forum apparently won't let you copy images directly into posts--it says they're too long--so I had to post before finding a way to get them in: imgur.com.

The flash file doesn't seem to work well in 5.3, so the mod will currently be buggy in the client.  The icons are up to date, though, since no ships were added this patch.

Hey there! I was wondering how you do the flipping thing with the icons. I'm working on a similar mod and can't figure out the flipping for the battle screen. I did look at the .xml in the unbound folder and compared them to the original, but really, i wouldn't know what to look for in the next patch when I'd have to update them (this all looks like gibberish to me...). Same for the flash file, I have no idea what's changed in it. Anyway, thanks if you can help me!

1. First download  and install Notepad ++. It should come with the Compare plugin for Notepad++ already included. 

go here https://notepad-plus-plus.org/download/v5.9.6.2.html

 

2. Then open both my edited xml files and original game xml files to compare them to each other by using the compare under the Plugin tab at top bar of Notepad++. You can see what changes I made to the file itself(it just a few numbers changes in all 3 xmls)

 

3. And for the battle_stats.swf flash file.

Download and install JPEXS free flash decompiler. Then open the battle_stats with Jpexs.

Go to the sprites tab in the side window.

You need to edit Definesprite 18 and Definesprite 38(they're for both left and right player panels)

 

It will just be easier If I show you a screenshot of what to edit

18

And 38

Don't forgot the "-" in sprite 18. It what cause the ship icon to mirror in battle. Same goes for xml files

 

You can put in any numbers you want to resize them bigger or smaller. But the numbers I use in the SS above, it just the perfect size for the icons

It's the anti-mirror files.  Just grab the new flash and unbound folders from my mod and use them with yours.  The old ones don't work with the new patch.  Major Renegade updated them.

read aboved. I just posted on how you can keep them updated yourself if you like, But I will keep updating them. But one day, I might not be able too. So I'm just passing around the knowledge on how to edit them

I had not used the 1923-1935 Soviet ensign before for the same reason the Soviets dumped it: looked too much like the Rising Sun.  I've changed my mind, though, and it's now included.

Wanted to let you know I had noticed prior to the recent update that the St Louis is showing as a Tier 4.

Oops.  Thanks for catching that.  The correct version is uploaded.
