In Update 1.6, you will have a completely new experience interacting with tank customization. We’re updating the decal interface to allow you to customize your vehicles more easily, and we’re introducing fresh sets of “classic” square and brand-new rectangular decals. In addition, we’re rolling out new fonts for Personal Numbers. Finally, you can see detailed information about some of the available styles in a special window in the game client. And now let’s look at each feature individually.

The Improved Customization Interface

Previously, you had to choose one of four so-called “anchors” on a certain part of the hull to apply a Decal on your vehicle. You also had to use special little arrows, and perform other actions. However, the movement of decals still wasn’t so convenient, and there was a need to improve the whole interaction process with Decals.

But now that’s all in the past! Starting with Update 1.6, when choosing a Decal, you will immediately be able to see all the points on your vehicle to which you can apply it. You can see how the Decal will look on a certain part of the hull, and it is pretty easy to drag it to another place with your cursor. Don’t like a specific Decal? No problem! Simply remove it with a few clicks and replace it with another one!

We also redesigned the menu for interacting with Decals, making it more clear, simple and intuitive.

During the redesign of the interface for interacting with Decals, we encountered some technical issues, due to which we had to remove previously applied projection Decals from your vehicles.

Don’t worry—these Decals haven’t disappeared and are still stored on your account. You can find them in the Exterior tab and apply them on your tanks again for free, using the reworked interface.

Roll Out in Style!

We’re also adding a set of brand-new rectangular (multi-dimensional) Decals. Their sizes will be displayed in the Decal selector as small squares. In addition, under each Decal you will find an icon of the ratio of its sides.

Rectangular Decals will be available for Tier VIII Premium vehicles, as well as for Tier X tanks, and can be applied to specific spots on each vehicle, such as the entire side of the tank. Positions for decals can differ from tank to tank. Ever wanted your Maus to look truly exclusive? Then decorate its entire side with a real piece of art! Take a look for yourself:

    I wish they would have the ability to have the scorpion g camo for example as just your desert camo. There are other tanks like that as well that would be great to have that option.
