Commanders!

 

Starting from version 0.9.6 the content in the folder "bin\<version>" including the folder "res_mods" will be deleted while updating the client.

This decision was made because after the installation of the new update many players continued to use outdated modification files, which most often resulted in unstable work of the game client, causing crashes.

 

We understand that deleting users' files may cause inconvenience for some players. However, the stability of the game client is a priority for us, and current measures will significantly reduce the number of technical problems for players after the release of a new update.

 

Thank you for understanding and good luck in battles.

I'm fairly sure a substantial part of instability comes from the spaghetti-code and poor optimalisation from WG's side.  

  

But straight up deleting folders & maps, isn't that overly harsh? Just make a filter that shuts down any files with a "last modified at xx/yy/zzzz" if that date is earlier than the patchday.

Why this announcement was not on the launcher news? Not all players watch the forums every day. That could allow modders to store their res _mod folder and not lost it entirely. Who will pay the amount of time spent for skins and other harmless mods?

Hi Captain, 

By default, you can now find the Mod folder at this path "C:\Games\World_of_Warships_EU\bin\2666186\res_mods". 😊
