Mini Map Ship colors

Recommended Posts

I saw last year you created a custom minimap ship color mod for someone.  I have the same difficulty seeing the current red color used on the mini map because of vision impairments.  Will this mod still work with 0.7.4 or would you be willing to update or create a mod that has different colors like you did previously? I would be happy to compensate you for this.

 

Thank you,

You need this to be re-done, the old version won't work definitely.

 

I'm not sure if I still have files, but I can try to look around.

I appreciate the response Aslain,

I have the file that you created for him back then and I will include it here if that helps you at all.

 

Thanks again,

Ok, thanks. I'll let you know here. If I succeeded. It takes some time to tinker it.

Hi Aslain,

 

I kind of hate to ask, however I was just wondering if you have had a chance to look into this? 

 

Thanks again,

I was doing it for a few hours yesterday, almost did it, but encountered some issues, for example ship names, they are still red :/

 

You can check it out, it's unfinished tho: minimap.swf

 

Copy it to c:\Games\World_of_Warships_EU\res_mods\0.7.4.1\gui\flash\minimap.swf

Oh sorry I guess I misunderstood thinking that you were still working on it because you said you encountered some issues and it was unfinished.  :(  So there is no chance of getting this working?  It would be so helpful to me with my given visual issues.  I'm still more than willing to compensate you for this.  I can send some compensation now if that would help you.

 

Thanks again,

Zoraxx

I posted it with hope for some feedback. As of if it's working at all, or partialy or if there are any issues. Not sure when I will have time to make it again since I'm on vacations abroad currently.

You could just use alt_minimap in the pack, and change the red <enemy> color in the "res_mods\0.7.8.0\alt_minimap\settings.xml". Around line 222.

 

Think it's "0xb31111" the default, where "b31111" is the hex color, which you can grab anywhere and just replace.

Like if you wanted plain blue "0000ff" instead, it'd be color="0x0000ff".

The mod I had was also changing colors of all other enemy stuff, like circles, caps, zones etc.

Ah, alt_minimap can change the color of a lot of things, but not quite that extensive.

That worked for the mini map! I'm so happy.  One more thing, do you know how to change the color of the enemy Over The Ship Markers?  If I could get that changed I would be set. I'm not sure in which file to look for this. And if I do locate the file does it get changed similarly to the settings.xml file?

 

Thanks for your help

Np.

 

Do you mean for the running lights mod? They are just images. There are several options to them in Aslains pack right under the option, you might like the ones i've made there :) They look like this:

 

Or perhaps the ship icons themselves? I made one for that, but they've not been included in the pack. Grab them here:

I think that might be what I'm looking for.  I will try it out and let you know.   Thank you very much!

X33STORM, I do like your colored enemy ship icons which I will use.  I included a pic of what I was hoping the color could be changed on.  Could you please let me know if this is possible?

 

Thanks again,
