Crew icon & name

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how to change the crew icon and the name of a unique crew member ?
I have no idea where to find the images of unique crew members, or how to replace them.

who should be replaced with whom?

"Volusad Thassius", a special commander from battle pass season VIII (eu).
I want to replace the icon with a normal male german commander, and the name to a normal german commander.
As if it was just a normal crew member.

"Volusad Thassius"

иконки находятся тут:

 

C:\Games\World_of_Tanks\res\packages\gui-part1.pkg\gui\maps\icons\tankmen\icons\small

C:\Games\World_of_Tanks\res\packages\gui-part2.pkg\gui\maps\icons\tankmen\icons\small

 

.pkg - открывать zip архиватором

 

Мне нужно название самой иконки Volusad Thassius

 

пример:

@Hasol заменил на germany-1.png

 

tankmen.wotmod скопировать в C:\Games\World_of_Tanks\mods\1.17.1.0

tankmen.wotmod

* как редактировать name - не знаю (да и смысла в этом нет) :smile:

получиться типо такого:

Changing names is also easy. Wargaming uses GNU's gettext for translations in game.
They are located on: <WoT>/res/text/lc_messages/
The files you need are *_tankman.po, where * - is vehicle nation you need.
For example we will use germany_tankman.po.
First step is to convert .po file to .mo to make human readable/editable. With installed gettext use next command:

msgunfmt germany_tankman.mo -o germany_tankman.po

Second step - edit values you need, use Notepad++ and search through the .po file to find what you need.

Third step - convert .po back to .mo:

msgfmt germany_tankman.po -o germany_tankman.mo

Last step is to move this file that we got from msgfmt to path <WoT>/res_mods/<current_patch_folder>/text/lc_messages/

You will need to do this every patch/micropatch that WG release. And every language change. Otherwise you get missing strings sometimes or mix of two languages.

I hope that helped you ;)

P.S. You even don't need to install gettext to do this. Use online .mo to .po converters and back

Thanks !
I can now change the icons and names of crew members, thanks for the help.

@HEKPOMAHT 
Hey, I changed the icons of other crew members as well using the same technique, and it worked.
However, for some crew members this doesn't seem to work, such as ny21_girl_1
does_not_work.wotmodworks.wotmod
See files for working mod (works.wotmod) and non-working mod (does_not_work.wotmod).
Do you have any idea why it doesn't work for some crew members ?

Важно: при добавлении иконки - метод сжатия "Без сжатия" :hmm:

@Hasol you should create zips as wotmod ONLY in Store compression, so as-is compression. WoT doesn't support other compression and will throw out on launch
