    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.

    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.

    any chance for an update 8.7?

    the traverse for the 212a is wrong, they actually shortened it in 8.6 so the little blue bar is incorrect.

    The mod has interference with Accurate Damage Indicator when playing tank in arcade mode.
