It only affects your client.. the others will not see how you have your tanks set.
Dude, what? Then what's the point? You can't see your own tank anyway except for your treads if you have that option on.

It affects all tanks in your client. ALL of the tanks would have the same armor and you would see it that way. Someone else who you are playing against could have a different tank model and he/she would see all of the tanks as their model. You would be playing the same server, but both would be looking at different representations of the same tanks.

Oh. I guess that's an okay idea. I kinda like the idea of everyone setting their own tank as a specific model everyone else can see better, though.

You can already sorta change the paint jobs of the tanks by screwing around with the textures in the game folder, but I can see where you're coming from. Maybe an option that'll show other tanks as how they're set or just a general model of your choice?

What about server-specific models, like a model you can change to only on that server or all tanks that go on a particular server are automatically made a special model that doesn't affect the actual option?
