Vehicle Markers (OverTargetMarkers) in XVM: User configuration samples.


Vehicle Markers (sometimes called OverTargetMarkers, a previous, similar mod) – is one of the main functions of XVM, and was initially created for that purpose.

Vehicle markers are a significant part the battle interface, as they provide critical information about the status of the particular vehicle above which they are located.

User-friendly and informative marker settings allow for rapid evaluation of the match situation and battle orientation, which is why so many configuration authors devote special attention to their configuration.

  • Tank model icon
  • Clan or player icon
  • Tank tier (level)
  • Action Marker (Calls for help, attack, etc.)
