WoT Developer Q&A

19

Good day everyone,

Brief Q&A for you all from a developer meeting with NA and EU community people, mostly focused on update 9.21, HD maps, and plans for the New Year:

HD Maps

Working on HD maps requires a lot of resources and time. When we make the transition to HD maps it needs to be done be done with all of them, because we can’t support of mix of SD and HD maps at the same time.

At the moment we are working so that we have enough maps converted to HD for their release- but we don’t want to mention any dates. We’re almost there, about month instead of years. We don’t want to upset the playerbase by announcing a date and then having to push it back.

We are pleased to say though that we’re far enough along with converting HD maps that we now can start thinking about creating new ones, or even returning old maps. For example, we can imagine new maps with Asian themes, or be inspired by maps from the Console version of the game. The variety of maps is very important for us and, without any promises, the location of one of them is where we work. Continue reading

  • An error, due to which it was impossible to apply reward camouflage when the conditions of the Personal missions are met.

  • Some technical issues.

Good day everyone,

So a small update has hit the general test server, here are the changes:

Customization Interface Changes

  • New interface screen

  • For the bonus effect of camouflage to be applied to a tank, the hull must be painted.
  • Added a new effect to apply wear and tear to paint. This effect does not work with low graphics settings.
