[Development] Vehicle camouflage and decals - new display options



Dear players, as you know with the launch of the Market in the game the possibility of installing custom camouflages for ground vehicles and aircraft that are visible to other players has been given. They are conditionally divided into three types:
  • Historical - recreated on the basis of photographic evidence of real existing camouflages.
  • Semi-historical - vehicle camouflages which could have existed at the time.
  • Any - including a fictional camouflage style.
We respect the choice of players who prefer the authenticity design of the vehicle, so in addition to this the option which allows a choice of displaying a historical level of camouflage has been added to War Thunder. This option affects the display of not only those camouflages that were created by players but also those that were added from the developers, for example those that were given out during the “Thunder League” tournament.

In the near future the option “Vehicle customization” will include decals. Now with this function you can choose whether to display only historical decals and inscriptions or also allow the display of event decals, like footballs.

Choose War Thunder options that are exactly for you.
