In the previous versions, there was ( in the top right corner, during sniper mode) red digits, showing the number of zooms ( for example x8)
Now this digits disappeared.
How can I activate them?

it broken now

works with 8.11 only no zoom numbers indeed, playing with 8.10_Gun_sight_of_tank1

hi guys, works fine on new version 8.11

Zoom mod ban?

so~this zoom mod can use?? it’s safe ?
I’m afraid GM ban my account~~

Safe to use and No, it’s not banable

Usually you need to upgrade each patch cause WOT changes something each time.


I am playing with 8.11 on EU servers. I downloaded the two folders into res_mods/0.8.11 folder.

I disabled dynamic camera, and enabled server reticle.

Still no luck. ANy chance of step by step trouble shooting instructions?

For some weird reason it seems that I have gained the zoom out function which kicks in after my tank has been destroyed. E.g. camera zooms out in post mortem.

And no, I have not used any other mods. I am a bit puzzled about this all.

2 Memyself:
checked it on EU server
disable dynamic camera, and enable server reticle.
on minimum and on maximum graphics settings.
works fine…
to make sure you’re doing everything right try other mod, for example http://wot-shot.com/icon_of_tanks/

Hi Ed,

Thanks for your fast response. The mod you proposed to try as a double confirmation works ok. I removed and re-extracted the sniper mod. Dynamic camera is disabled, server reticle enabled. With minimum and maximum graphics settings the sniper mode stays exactly the same it was when I first installed the game.

Any further ideas on what I could try to make this work would be highly appreciated.

2 Memyself:
you do it right.
maybe you just do not use the mouse wheel to zoom πŸ˜‰

Hi Ed, that most probably is it as I am using a touch pad… πŸ™‚ Well, at least I know now what the issue is. Thanks for your support.

what is the max zoom level?
and do i need to unzip the files into the mod folder?

2 Sam:
1. 30X

Thanks for the zoom mod. It works fine and is what I was looking for. But I’m wanting to change it some. I don’t like how many times it takes to zoom all in. Is there a way to remove some of the zooms so it will zoom in and out faster? I only use it either zoomed all in or none so if this is possible, it would be nice. I’d do it myself but don’t know what to change. If you can tell me what to change, I will do it myself. Either way, thank you for the zoom mod and hope that you update it for 9.0…

2 CrazyBricker:
open “ZoomX.xml” which is located in “gui” folder.
then delete unnecessary numbers of zoom between tags – zooms 2 4 8 10 12 16 20 24 28 30 /zooms
for example, you can leave only two numbers zoom – 2 30
then save the file.

2 ed

is it possible to add more zooms past 30x?

Thanks for the reply but I figured that out after I asked. I just tried it and it worked but thanks anyway.

Do you know what the normal zooms are? I’d like to have it with the 3 normal zooms and then the 30. I think I have it close but want to know for sure if you know.


2 Sam:
I set these numbers – 2 90 in ZoomX.xml and it works, but when I set – 2 30 90, it not works.

2 CrazyBricker:
maybe 2 10 30

Hello Ed!

i was wondering if this mod will be available/ compatible with 9.0 ?


Many thanks Ed!
