    Got a bit of a problem...

    When I install this mod, the arty sight works fine, but the reticle on the main view disappears apart from the server reticle.

    When using tanks other than arty, the server reticle is the only one visible, all the rest is gone, both in main view and sniper mode.

    Any ideas, as I really want this mod back?

    Thanks :)

    I asked on the Curse page on Dec 31 but received no reply, so I guess I'll try here...

    Can I get this mod without the Protractor? I've got a minimap addon that I like, and I doubt the two would play well together.

    Did U read the config files comments?
    Didn't ??

    <bigMapKey>17</bigMapKey>    <!-- Key to zoom MiniMap, default 20(CapsLock), can be changed to 17(Ctrl). -->

    Any key can be used within key pool to with game listen to...

    If you do provide an update to this mod, please take out the hard coded minimap key or give the end users an option of setting it. Not everyone uses the same keys as everyone else and for those that use the left control key for something else, it's quite annoying. So much, that I removed the mod simply for that reason.
