0.9.2.1
(last edited 01. APR. 2020)

 

 

 

This mods is based on a prework from @iJoby who did this with former Seagal and Dunkirk. My intention was to replace the appearance to a more distinctive one. Meaning I was looking for white dress pictures of historical commanders of that era if possible. If not found, I picked a more modern admiral in withe dress and hat. The mod contains two parts: The pictures (in the 0.9.2.1/gui/... folder) and the names (in the 0.9.2.1/texts/... folder). The latter one contains the global.mo file which has to be specific for each client version. The pictures are version independent and can be used (copy&paste) without client restrictions.

 

Since 0.8.2.0 this mod supports all possible languages for the EU-client:

  • english
  • čeština
  • français
  • deutsch
  • polski
  • español

  • türkçe

  • italiano

  • nederlands

 

I merged all language files into one download archive and the mod works with whatever language you picked to play with. One archive is easier to handle for me, creates lesser traffic and you do not have any problems if you like to switch languages. The mod will still work.

 

 

 

 

In Update 0.8.6.0 Wargaming introduced five historical commanders (without any improved skills) to buy for 1,500 doubloons in the Armory: 

  • Theodore E. Chandler
  • Matsuji Ijūin 
  • Vladimir Trubetskoy
  • Friedrich Bonte
  • Horace Hood

As these five are already historical commanders this mod will not change their appearance nor will it use their names or pictures for other replacements.

Updated to curret client version 0.8.3.1.

 

I have to thank @T33kanne for providing me some nice commander pictures from the console game WoWs:Legends. There are now some intresting pictures for possbile upcoming japanese unique commders or a british legendary commander.

 

 

 

Replaced the US Ovechkin with Norman Scott:

#Anton Gurin:

  • 1910 - 1962
  • joined navy in 1928
  • rear admiral (1951) of the soviet navy
  • became captain of the famous soviet destroyer Gremyashchy (ingame russian tier5 premium DD)
  • received the US Navy Cross and the order Hero of Soviet Union at the end of the war

 

 

 

Wargaming desided to introduce a USSR Legendary Commander with patch 0.8.4 (Nikolay Kuznetzov). I used his name and appearance for one of the two Znamensky commanders. Because of that I wanted to replace my commander already in this patch to avoid possible confusions with double Kuznetzov Commanders in the future. The new commander will be Vladimir Kasatonov.

Mod updated to client version 0.8.7.0.

  • no change of content
  • included preview for the new unique french commander
  • added preview for the upcoming german and italian unique commanders

 

 

 

 

edit

 

I encounterd some unexpected translation errors (i.e. look at the discribtion of the new manuall-AA skill). So I altered a new version. For all players using the english language version here is the new mod-version without any error messages (3.8MB):

 

EN_0.8.7.0.rar

 

I will update the other languages tomorrow. 

 

 

edit 2

 

I found the cause of the problems (converting *.po files into the used *.mo files). I updated the RAR-Archive of the whole mod in the opening post.
