Source: http://world-of-kwg.livejournal.com/280163.html Hello everyone, Storm made another 9.0-themed post, this time, he’s asking about the feedback of the three HD models, released in the first round of the test. What did you like? What didn’t you like? Also, he posted three new screenshots of models, that have been reworked (they from today (26.3.2014) and are different from the ones, that are on the test). Which one do you like the most? Vote on FTR poll (right side of the blog) From the discussion: - T-54 on this screenshot was not much changed from the test one - the size (height) of T-54 turret is apparently correct: Storm states that there were many variants of T-54 turrets and this is just one of them, Wargaming specifically checked the ordiginal documents (factory assembly drawings) and the turret is correct - it’s possible there will be more turrets for T-54 after alternative hulls are added - regarding camo paint applied on wheels, Storm states that it looks weird whe wheels are rotating - Storm confirms 7 more HD models in 9.0 - it’s possible that weak computers will have the option not to download HD textures, from 9.1 onwards most likely - Storm states that 9.0 hangar lighting is specific, because there are 3 light sources in it (SS: not just 1 as in battle), some models just look odd in the light - in 9.0, old hangar mods will most likely not work, because the lighting system has been reworked - apparently, WG hasn’t developed any means to make the players “feel the size” of the tanks yet - the Tiger was made much lighter, this change will appear in the next version of test - for now, there will be no “turret ripped off by ammo rack explosion” effect for turretless tanks (like ripping the compartment open), but it might come later - dirt on the tracks will be implemented, based on the type of map (surface) - there are no plans to add wear and tear to tanks, used in many battles by the players (SS: as in a tank with 3k battles looking more worn out than one with 30) - there are no plans to implement the possibility for players to create their own camouflage - British HD models in 9.0 will be Centurion 7/1 and Tortoise, Conqueror will come later
