Here's another set of update notes to coincide with the release of patch 9.20. In today's notes: a new pack has been released for Chinese vehicles, the file structure of all existing packs was changed to allow for smoother updates in the future, a handful of packs received updates for patch 9.20, and more! Check it out!
Status Update | Finnish Color Pack Beta (+ HONORABLE MENTION), Strv 81 Reskin/Remodel, & Pz. 58 "Hopp Schwiiz" Skin released (Aug. 27)
While I was originally going to wait to post another update until the usual patch release notes were ready (9.20, in this case), a couple new things have been released today, one of which is in conjunction with the release of Milkym4n's brand-new BT-42 remodel (and several other content creators' skins for said remodel)! With that being said, here's everything new for today!
EDIT 3: The polls are now closed. Thanks for all your feedback! Here are the results (since the poll service doesn't appear to actually show them, even though it's supposed to):
Enough people voted for Version A (aka the current British Olive) that I will be keeping it as it currently is, while the darker olive (Version B) will be introduced as its' own separate pack sometime in the future (hopefully sooner than later).
As far as the French color choices went, we have a pretty clear winner - Vert Olive! Therefore, you can expect to see a Vert Olive pack in the future as well. However, Vert-Foncé also received a significant amount of votes, edging out in front of both Gris-Vert and Terre d'ombre by a fair margin, and, as such, I also plan on turning Vert-Foncé into a pack of its' own. Both will be released sometime in the near future.
Oh, and one final note: the Gris-Vert color is actually quite similar to the current Dark Green pack - so similar, in fact, that I may either revise the color slightly to match it, or simply rename it to "Gris-Vert". Either way, this will likely happen after the other packs are finished.
Thanks again for all your feedback, and stay tuned for these (and more) coming Soon™! The original post remains below.
Update Notes (Jul 16-18) | New Pack for Czechoslovakia, Bovington Tanks, updates for 9.19.1, & more!
With the release of patch 9.19.1, it's time for an update! In today's news: a new pack for Czechoslovak vehicles, a new series of Bovington replica skins, updates for the new patch, and more!
Firstly - some of you may have spotted this post (or at least, a similar one) briefly earlier today in a significantly less finished state, which may have disappeared shortly afterwards. Apologies for any confusion that may have caused - I accidentally hit the "post" button instead of "save" when I left, so I accidentally sent this changelog post out unfinished. Here's the actual, fully-finished post.
Anyway, guess who's back? (Er, technically I've been back for a week or two, but I hadn't actually made a formal update post yet. Either way...) I've updated everything to work with patch 9.19 (and the following .0.1 & .0.2 micropatches). Most of the changes are small overall - a few packs received some new vehicles (as well as revisions to a handful of older ones), and all skins were repackaged in the .wotmod format. Here's all the specific details on what changed.
As some of you may know, my senior year (as a highschooler) is coming to an end within a couple short weeks, and my workload - both from and outside of school - has been steadily increasing as a result, so I've had significantly less time to work on skins as of late. This, coupled with some personal matters which I've encountered in the past few months (as well as general distaste for some of Wargaming's most recent decisions), has not left much time or motivation for me to work on making more skins/mods. Gladly, I still have a couple projects that are very close to being finished (which I may be able to release shortly), but... otherwise, progress has been pretty much nonexistent, sorry. For the aforementioned reasons (and general life stuff - not to say I have one :P), I will be taking a brief hiatus for a week or two (which technically started a couple of weeks ago, but unofficially). I may do a bit of work in my off time, but I wouldn't expect another release for at least another week. I'll probably resume things sometime between next Monday (May 29) and Friday (June 2), as I don't want to keep you guys waiting! (Once again, sorry for the delay, for those who have requested packs)
TL;DR: Been busy lately, so I'm taking a hiatus until sometime next week, which will probably end by June 2nd.
In the meantime, have a great week, and happy tanking! Things will resume Soon™ (hopefully sooner than later).
