Carousel Extended (WoWS mod) (World of Warships Interface Modification)

Recommended Posts



Extended MiniCarousel



The Carousel Extended mod allows you to see in Port what signals, eco boosts, upgrades and consumables, and even what flags and camo are mounted on your ship.

You will see when you run out of a signal or eco boost, or even camo. You can demount all your signals before a Co-op battle and mount them back for a Random. You can quickly filter your ships in the carousel. All this right in Port.

The mod adds two elements to the Port: the Carousel Filter Bar above the ship carousel and the draggable Ship Config panel.

The ship config panel can be dragged by clicking on the anchor icon above its top left corner. It can be made visible/hidden by clicking on the eye icon, also above its top left corner. It displays the following mounted items:

    1st row - signals and eco boosts;
    2nd row -  upgrades, consumables, flag(s) and camo.

When you click on a signal, an eco boost, an upgrade or a consumable, you can manage them right there in the panel; you can also demount a camo and right clicking on an eco boost, flag or a camouflage will open the screen for it.

Recommended signals and the best available eco boosts can be mounted/demounted by clicking on the '+' or 'x' buttons.

The mod will display warning icons if auto-purchase is enabled for the eco boosts or camos. You can turn off auto-purchase by clicking on the warning icons.

The ship config panel will display the exclamation point warning icon if there are signals mounted on the ship for Co-op and also when there are none mounted for other battle modes. This warning can be disabled by manually adding

<showSignalWarning> false </showSignalWarning> under <elementsGroupExpand> in the preferences.xml file:

				<showSignalWarning>	false	</showSignalWarning>


Another exclamation point warning icon will appear when an Expendable Ship XP bonus is mounted on a Rental, Premium, Special, Elite, Tier X or Super ship. This warning can be disabled by manually adding

<showShipXPBoostWarning> false </showShipXPBoostWarning> under <elementsGroupExpand> in the preferences.xml file:

				<showShipXPBoostWarning>	false	</showShipXPBoostWarning>


The Ship Config panel can be made smaller by manually adding

<cons_panel_scale> NN </cons_panel_scale> under <IMPositionX> in the preferences.xml file. The number NN is the % scale of the panel and it must be between 50 and 100:

                <cons_panel_scale>    85    </cons_panel_scale>

The above example will make the panel 85% of its default size. Some small elements, like lines with a width of a single pixel, may not be fully visible when the panel is scaled down.


The filter carousel bar can be made visible/hidden by clicking on the eye icon above the ship carousel at the left. When it's visible, it replaces the default filter tabs. It appears on the Port, Equipment  and Exterior screens. When any filter check-boxes are selected an 'X' icon appears at the left of the bar. You can reset all filter settings by clicking it. As the filter bar is long it may not fit if your screen has a low resolution or if the UI scale is big, so it can be scrolled by using the mouse wheel - in other words it's also a carousel.



The best way to get the 'Carousel Extended' mod is from  Aslain's modpack

Manual installation:

  • Download the mod from here: Carousel Extended
  • Make sure that the version of the mod and the version of the WoWS game client you are running are the same
  • Unzip the mod
  • Make sure the game client is not running
  • If you are using other mods too, install those first.
  • Check if the following file exist:
    • ..\World_of_Warships\bin\nnnnnnn\res_mods\gui\uss_settings.xml *
  • If it exists, then installing the mod requires manual editing of the file. Copy/paste these two lines from the uss_settings.xml file that you got with the mod into the existing one:
  • If it does not exist, copy the uss_settings.xml file to ..\World_of_Warships\bin\nnnnnnn\res_mods\gui\
  • Then copy the following files from the folders of the unzipped mod:
    • carousel_extended.swf to ..\World_of_Warships\bin\nnnnnnn\res_mods\gui\unbound\mods\
    • carousel_extended.xml to ..\World_of_Warships\bin\nnnnnnn\res_mods\gui\unbound\mods\
  • Copy the carousel_extended_icons folder into ..\World_of_Warships\bin\nnnnnnn\res_mods\gui\

* Your game directory may have a region suffix, e.g. World_of_Warships_NA. nnnnnnn is the build number and the name of the directory containing it. You have to create these sub-folders if they do not exist. The zipped mod file contains the directory tree for your convenience.

Lesta changed how the ship boxes are generated in the carousel, it used to be coded in Unbound1 now it's Unbound2. So two former Carousel Extended features, fast scroll and the 3D ship images, are now implemented by separate Ub2 mods:

  1. Carousel Fast Scroll
  2. XP to next ship + 3D ship icons on compact carousel

Both are in Aslain's modpack.
