Plutonium Universal Max Effects by HolyGrail & Potenz for IL-2 1946 4.10 - v2



This mod is a full conversion of the excellent Plutonium mod by HolyGrail and Potenz, adapted to work on IL2 4.10 Modact, DBW, HSFX5 and UP3

Version 2 is out!
It adds a nighttime flak burst effect that illuminates the sky and your cockpit so that you can now experiment the terror of WWII bomber crews :o
See it in action:



Choose one of the following versions depending on your install:

Download IL-2 1946 Plutonium Universal Max Effects v2 for 4.10 Modact and DBW

Download IL-2 1946 Plutonium Universal Max Effects v2 for DBW with AI MOD (only if you have #DBW_AIMod activated in JSGME)

Download IL-2 1946 Plutonium Universal Max Effects v2 for HSFX 5 (or any install with BombBayDoors mod)

Download IL-2 1946 Plutonium Universal Max Effects v2 for UP 3.0


Installation instructions:
Simply extract the content of the file in your mods folder (named "MODS", "#DBW" or "#UP#")
Have fun! Any feedback is appreciated.

Changelog:
V1 (11/11/27) : initial release
V2 (11/12/08) :
- added nighttime flak burst effect (thanks RooMan296!)
- corrected Mustang engine meshes disappearing (thanks Birdman!)

From the authors:
Quote
New release , which is based on and replacing previous obsolete Uranium effects version .
It have been created from many WWII archival documentaries and gun camera footage like Hunters in the skies , The War File Air Battles of WWII , Wings of Defeat - Kamikaze , archival RAF and Luftwaffe WWII footage .
Some effects are simulating very much the same real WWII visual effects shape and size , some other effects are close as possible to the real thing as much as game engine allow .
Main focus was on the whole battlefield immersion as can be seen from inside aircraft cockpit rather than on each effect detailed view .
Every effect included in Plutonium mod is done the way it is for a reason which 90% of the time is to staying within the game engine limits as much as possible to prevent massive textures disappearing .
It was thoroughly tested and it passed " The Black Death " track and all other recorded default tracks without causing textures disappearing .
It was tuned to withstand fairly bigger battle scenarios with infinite time period fires and smokes during air combat mission .

>>Original thread with full info and credits<<

Important: this is only a conversion; no new effects were added apart from the flak burst effect, although I did fix one bug from the original mod where flames on the clipped-winged Spitfire VIII didn't show up correcty.
Apart from that, this conversion aims to be the closest to the original.
Please note: if you have issues, be sure to deactivate all conflicting mods (particularly other effects mods) before reporting them.
Cheers,
sanka

Tested on HSFX 5.01 and it works perfectly like HSFX 4.11.
Very good job.
Thanks,

soooo the modact/DBW file goes into my MODS folder? When I did that, no track/dgen/qmb missions load ( no other mods present). Crashes to desktop. dang.

I don't know what may be the cause... It should work on a clean Modact installation. Anyone else having the same problem?

Which effects make your game crash? On which mission/track?

Maybe a clean install of the whole IL-2 1946? theres probably moddified files in there that I have no idea what/where. What are your thoughts?

Did you try with the UP3 files? Perhaps you have an UP3 version of files.sfs in your main folder...
