- added nighttime flak burst effect (thanks RooMan296!)
- corrected Mustang engine meshes disappearing (thanks Birdman!)From the authors:
New release , which is based on and replacing previous obsolete Uranium effects version .>>Original thread with full info and credits<<Important: this is only a conversion; no new effects were added
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 .
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.
