Attention: from 24th July to 10th August I will be in a very weak internet zone. It's unlikely that I'll release any updates in that time, I probably cannot provide any support either. Unless I find a strong signal on some mountain top. / Uwaga: od 24 Sierpnia do 10 lipca będę w strefie gdzie jest zbyt słaby internet żeby wypuszczać aktualizacje paczek. W tym czasie wsparcie z mojej strony będzie ograniczone. Przy odrobinie szczęścia może uda mi się znaleźć mocny sygnał, wtedy jest szansa na coś, ale nie obiecuję.

Drawing on minimap

22 posts in this topic

Hey all,

 

I noticed today, I can actually draw lines on the minimap. Is this a feature of the game or of some mods?
Just got back into WOT after a break and wonder what I missed.

 

Also, who can see those lines?

 

Cheers,

Tin

It is XMQP from XVM. I guess it's enabled by default on the minimap. If you don't like it, disable XMQP on the XVM website.

Ahh, ok, thanks. I had suspected XMQP but couldn't find anything about it.

I actually love the feature. Shame so few people use it.

 

Cheers

If you draw there, does everyone see it? It is a cool feature, but always wondered, is it just me who sees it..

You draw as if you point on the minimap.

Hold CTRL down and then hold down left mouse button and draw on the minimap. For other users, using XMQP, the see what you draw, all others just see the map quadrant flash where you started (or ended, not sure).

If you mean the normal map ping as flash than it will ping where you release the mouse button. WoT minimap is programmed to ping on mouse release, so if you draw long enough line (so it won't draw anymore) and then move the mouse out from the minimap you can prevent the map pinging.

Sorry to resurrect this old thread, but which of the XMQP notifications are being displayed with Aslain's version of XVM? I have not yet seen any notification about spotted allies, overturned vehicles, or which of my allies has XMQP loaded.

 

ETA: I have it selected in XVM's settings and installed with the modpack.

I finally figured it out.... I was seeing my lightbulb markers, and occasionally another player's indicator, but no fire or flip markers... but the answer is that there are not many players on NA using XMPQ, and those that are using it are not the ones burning or flipping!

I dont think that a lot of people are using it on the EU servers as I don't get any feedback at all in battles.  I have never seen anyone draw on the mini map.  Actually, I can not draw on the mini map myself.  Maybe it is because I use the ctrl key to enlarge the map to the center.

Only people whom use XMQP can see the lines from my understanding.

Hello 

 

For 1 to see dem XVM map drawings you must select the XMQP option at the XVM site. Just saying as a reminder.

 

Because I was wondering why I cant see none of them fancy XVM new stuff and it was not selected at the XVM site.

Too bad this feature is only for the XVM users among us. :(

It's a nice feature but you need xvm related stuff activated in the Aslain's Modpack to get this feature going. I don't have any knowledge of writing modifications for the game or understanding of how things work for writing them but I will ask the question:

 

"Is it possible to write a mod that does the same but without using XVM related stuff?"

 

Why do I ask? Because I play the game without XVM mods. I don't have the need to see what color other players are or how much WN8 they have. That only ruins the game (that's only my opinion). Therefor I don't activate any XVM mods in the modpack and only use some garage modifications without XVM. But ... I do like this option. It can be rather useful during a battle.

Yes, it would be possible.

 

But probably difficult.

 

The XVM feature that allows that minimap stuff, amongst other things, is the XMQP thingie - a feature that shares something extra between those XVM users that have enabled XMQP.

It shares things like sixth sense, showing an icon, or if you flip your tank... and lets you draw on the minimap. But only other people using the XVM "XMQP" feature will see it. It would be the same for a different mod. If someone makes it.

Thanks for the reply. 

 

I thought so that it would be possible, because the spotted vehicles mod is also there for non- xvm users. Now finding someone who wants to write such a non-xvm mod. :P

You're welcome :) Hehe.

 

I don't think you can compare the two.. since one is just displaying what vehicles got spotted, and it's fairly easy to keep track of, since they're fed that information from the client.

The drawing on minimap, requires a way to share the data.. I'm guessing the XVM servers handle that.. otherwise others couldn't see you drawing on the minimap.

Hmm ... yeah ... you've got a point. Well ... it isn't such a big deal. I was just wondering if it was possible. ;)
