CameraMode – This is the “avatar_input_handler.xml” file that contains most of the camera settings that apply in battle.
This is for PMOD by default
PMOD – if you use it together with “CameraMode”, “PMOD” will have priority in the settings. For “CameraMode” to work as intended, you must turn off the module: “onStartDeadDistance.json”, “zoomDistance.json”.
If you install “PMOD” from modpacks, there may be other modules included, for example: “zoomX.json” “scrollSensitivity.json” or other modules.
There are 4 files in the archive, they differ only in the written values of the return to xZoom:
1) “CameraMode_Zoom_None_Transition” –
2) “CameraMode_Zoom_Transition_to_x1” –
3) “CameraMode_Zoom_Transition_to_x2” –
4) “CameraMode_Zoom_Transition_to_x4” –
How it works: In the “General” setting, you have to turn on the additional xZooms. When you are at a value greater than the “return to xZoom” value you selected, you will go back for 1 scroll of the mouse wheel to the “xZoom” multiplier that is selected. Also select the appropriate multiplicity when entering the sniperMode.
What has changed compared to the original file: (*) – original.
*There are other changes not shown here.
To understand which horizon we are talking about, first look at the center of the crosshairs in arcadeMode, and then switch to the screenshot in sniperMode. When you aim in arcadeMode, your eyes focus on the crosshair, when you switch to sniperMode, your eyes should refocus lower because the crosshair in sniperMode is on the horizon of your monitor.
Inside is an additional file “Flash_for_CameraMode_&_Crosshair”, it will be updated outside of the main mod, almost every patch.
Move the selected variant from the archive to the game version folder in the path: “*\World_of_Tanks\mods\version\*”.
Be sure to turn on the additional zooms, commander and tactical camera in the “General” settings.
After all the steps, the installation and configuration is complete. You can test different options to return xZoom, but remember to delete the past file, otherwise you will get an error loading the mod when you start the game.
