I suppose this is basically the same as the various other modpacks, just 100% developer approved, correct?

 

A list of all the mods included would be nice to have in the opening post.

It is an installer, so you can pick and choose exactly which mods you want to install, it is not a fixed set.

 

So it is definitely the same as the other modpacks, with the difference that we have tested these and are reasonably sure they won't break your game.  :)

This is a fantastic step of WG to include the modding community. Thanks for the news, MrConway!

 

It would be more if this info is on the main www.

People should know that you can have mods in this game. And they are not forbidden. And easy to use.

 

I have never used mods but since it came from WG directly I do not see the problem.

 

Question: Can we have a list what modes are there in this package? Or there is description in the installer?

Captains,

 

As many of you know, our games have a very passionate russian modding community that continues to create amazing content from patch to patch that allows players to customize their game experience.

 

As we are passionate players ourselves, we know that this issue is often discussed, but not all players are comfortable installing mods even if they might like to. To change this, we picked several mods that we find interesting and compiled them into one modpack. We're sharing it for your convenience- please let us know what you think of it!


We have checked to see that the included mods don't break the code of the game, but please remember that mods are still third-party software that may behave differently on different systems and may affect client performance. As such we cannot offer any support for issues arising from their use, if you have problems after installing the mods, please remove them!

 

Get your World of Warships modpack here! To install it, simply move the file into your World of Warships directory (example: C:\Games\Worpd_of_Warships) and run the executable!

 

Disclaimers:

  • The modpack is checked and should not be game-breaking, however:
    • This modpack is a collection of third party player-created modifications - it may not be optimized for all systems and may affect the client performance!
    • If installation of the modpack causes you issues, just run the installer again and clean up modifications or uninstall ones that pose problems.
    • After each update, the modpack creators will need a bit of time to adjust and release it. The function is thus not guaranteed at all times!

 

FIFY

 

for everyone out there: this pack only includes mods made from russian modders...

It would be even more if they would include people outside Russia too... atm thats only a russian modpack where the UI isn't 100% translated.. but that would require a Modder program that they just don't want to add

 

@MrConway: Are they even translated? because the previewimages are always in russian...

The descriptions should all be in English, whereas the screenshots have not been localized.

 

And this feedback is noted! This is mainly a test, if it proves popular and the feedback is good we can hopefully expand the initiative.

Ok, so it seems to be a bit "early days" but this is an excellent idea - thanks for this!

 

If possible, might I request you add fugetsu's excellent Rising Sun mod?

Wow this is actually a really cool gesture by Wargaming! I use Aslain's for convenience but I understand when there are updates things break and it can take time for modders to update their packs etc. Here we have a Wargaming approved one which will help people who are new to the concept of installing mods and may not know which third party pack to choose from.

 

GG Wargaming, nice work :tea_cap:

As far as i know is this modpack around for a while now and it is on the russian main page. It used to have an installer in english too but the developer discontinued it because there are so many modpacks for the english speaking user already. It's possible or maybe likely, that the modpack developer will offer an english version again once the demand is there. But you have to agree, that it makes little sense to offer an english installer if 95%+ of the modpack user are russians. ^^

 

[EDIT]

It should also be noted that in the WG modpack is some mod (i believe it is related to plane names iirc) that change your client and ingame voiceover to russian. This should be fixed asap by the developer.

Have not downloaded it yet but i want to take some guesses.

 

No historical skin/flag mods and no extended tech tree mod.

 

Now lets see when its finished downloading.

 

*select FPS value ?!?!? anyway i am missing 144 there if it is indeed monitor refresh rate*

 

Say WHAAA the extended tech tree is there ..... awesome did not expect that.

no historical skins/flags but considering legal issues i can fully understand that.

First of all , i wanna ask, why? At first, i dont understand the existance of this modpack. This pack contains only russian mods and then we have the problem that players don't understand this mods. Okey, so lets see what we have until now . A modpack with russians mods in an installer which is 50% translated, made for EU/NA/SEA players.... i dont know if i should laught or cry. This modpack is kinda useless. We already have a lot of modpacks over NA/EU/SEA community ( to name some, Aslains [ probably the most famous modpack on this servers ] , hakabase , Viking ,webium , GP`s modpack ect..) , so i don't see why this Modpack exists the way it is. It would have been great if all mods included would have been translated. because we don`t get this from the russian forums. Yes , i suppose the goal is to have all the servers with the best mods under a secure modpack gave by WG, but it has really no reason to be in a EU/NA/SEA community if the mods aren't available in english. And thats not all... Modders outside the RU Forum seems to be abandomed by the developers in the mods area , in wich we had to find everything by ourselfs to get it to work via russian forums and "good" google translation texts. We could also talk about this, how devs seems to be dead over here , in the modders community on that three servers . Looking up the russian forum, you will see how much they support their modders, in contrast with us , wich seems unbalance to my eye .Dont wanna make this look like a rant  here, but its honestly what i think about this . Hope you can take it with a bit of a critic eye and as a constructive critic to improve .

The developer is WG. Not someone else.. It's the result of the russian modder program that is only on russia active. Where they created (WG together wioth modders) this pack.

And they released it today for the english audience. Why isn't it fully translated then? If you release something on a english website and it is aimed at english speaking people.. then translate it at least..

Doesn't matter if it wasn't used before from english guys..

C'mon. This is an official approved mod pack. Yes it has kinks, but stability is supposedly not one of them. And we get it early!

 

Let me sum it up: Official, stable, early.

 

I can live with some missed translations.

What do I think:

- You could be a little more specific about the modpack. 292 MB? I just cancelled the "curious" download since I am not that curious. Please provide more information in your announcement because for people with limited data volume this already kills it, since you have to download it every 3 weeks + eventual mod updates. 

 

- I am unsure if I like this or not

1. Only RU modders, so we have a copy pasta from the RU server not fully localized, while in everything else the different servers always seek independant decisions and actions. Why not support the local modders in the same way?

2. WoWs does an excellent job in incorporating usefull mods into the game in a very timely fashion, unlike WoT e.g. Is this the end of this?

3. Which mods are actually needed at the current state (leaving aside cosmetics), since the game has incorporated most usefull mods already? Won't check , because...... 292 MB ^^

 

- Why is this in gameplay? We have an extra section for that. BBV !! :trollface:

I think the idea is good, but if a bunch of it is in Russian, those parts are kind of useless.

 

A list of mods included would be great. It's not really necessary for people like myself who don't care about download speeds or amounts, but for others it might be an issue. But just a list of what you're actually downloading is just proper, rather than downloading a mystery packet.

 

I have to say I've not tried it yet, and still using a selection from Aslain's pack. Gonna check it out later, probably.
