Title: IL-2 1946 Plutonium Universal Max Effects for 4.10 - HSFX5 - DBW - UP3 - v2 [4.10]
Post by: sanka on November 27, 2011, 01:20:56 PM
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 (http://www.mediafire.com/?zx7z8d67tqjr63n)

Download IL-2 1946 Plutonium Universal Max Effects v2 for DBW with AI MOD (http://www.mediafire.com/?a55u65050ooyt57) (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) (http://www.mediafire.com/?w58m13m8ry0a18h)

Download IL-2 1946 Plutonium Universal Max Effects v2 for UP 3.0 (http://www.mediafire.com/?srrcfs9bbtbp5sk)

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<< (http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,6631.0.html)

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

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?

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...

I think this is something about ships.ini and technics.ini not related to the class files, but ship inferno effect is missing yet.
Maybe the ship's turrets are too strong to be destroyed in DBW.

your up3 files work in my MODS folder, tried a QMB Normandy1 early map w/ bombs etc.. seems to be A-ok :D however The track "The Black Death" crashes as soon as the bombs hit the ground :(

EDIT:
seems the IL-2 96 x PTAB-2.5 bombs are causing the crash apon expoding. Same with the B-25/A-20 Parafrags.

Yes, I haven't found anything related to ships in the original Plutonium classfiles. What does this effect do?

You may want to try on a clean install ;)
It shouldn't crash like this. I tested both versions extensively on most tracks and heavy missions with many effects.

Thanks! I'll test it when I get back home.
I'd appreciate if other UP3 users tell me if they also experiment crashes with no other mods activated :)
It seemed to work fine on my UP3 RC4 install, but some bugs may have gone unnoticed :o

OK. I've fixed the version for UP3, it shouldn't crash anymore on vehicle explosions.
This was due to a old version of 72DCDDF4D2AD25E8 I mistakenly left in the folder. Sorry about that!  :-[

It works only in #UP folder. You won't see it in JSGME list. If you want to disable any mod, you should add "-" in front of mod folder.

Thank you Sanka for your big effort!  :)

No problem for the posts, that's the goal of this thread! :)
Just out of curiosity, what is the precise file size (in bytes) and modification date of your 72DCDDF4D2AD25E8 file in #UP#\0_0_Plutonium_Universal_Max_Effects_V1 ?

That's the correct size.
I'm sorry but there must be something wrong with the way you installed UP3... I've tested it a lot on UP3 and never experienced crashes. Try the DBW version maybe? (once you've installed all the DBW builds of course)

Anyway, what kind of game do you use?

UP3, ModAct, DBW, HSFX?

With the modpack you can easilty strart from a clean install and use only this mod, with modact it's another matter because you should try without any othrt mods

Once again thanks for taking the time to modify PUME files to be compatible with 4.10.1m. I am most happy with the results of it in DBW. I've now tested amost every map, situation, track, and all is very well! Again, thank-you!

sanka,

a few years ago holygrail kindly combined his effects mod with Aed's to give more or less holygrails effects but with slightly more engine smoke in 4.09m.

The best way for you to see what i mean is to try it, so i have uploaded it here.

http://www.mediafire.com/?svc350r1hfqi2uo

You will need to disable any other effects packages, and move the classfiles to get it to work in 4.101 (i use DBW 1.6).

I was wondering if you have the time, would you please be able to implement this in your updated effects please? even as just an option?

also i have reposted here a request i made in the other post

Quote
sanka,

Holygrail was working on a fluid fire mod for plutonium effects, which would give a better fps for larger fires and would spread with time, see link here

http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,6631.msg155117.html#msg155117

and video here

do you think you may be able to include this in any update at all mate? would be great for bombing raids on factories and towns.

lastly, do you think in the future it may be possible to add an underbelly fire effect? holygrail and sani were working on one, see here

Thanks a lot mate for a brilliant update to this mod, this was the missing piece of the jigsaw for me for 4.101.

regards

slipper  :)

I think if you use the 3DO and effects folders from the fluid fire mod, it will work like that night raid video.
Because these effects are from the old Uranium mod, it's just the "eff" files from Uranium adapted to Plutonium, not related to class files.

you may possibly be right mate, but i do not have the 3DO and effects folders from the fluid fire mod, it was something holygrail and co were working on and never released. Also if you watch the video the effect spreads with time, we do not have that at the moment.

I also believe it is more fps friendly than the animated flames we have at the moment.

Yes, I know, the same effect from Uranium mod. :)

Just copy this folder from Uranium with the entire folder structure:
00_A_Uranium_Edition_New_Effects_V1_Bomb_Bay_Door_Compatible_November_26_2009\Effects\Explodes\Objects\House

Put the folder in your mod folder and make it to be read before the Plutonium puting a lot of zeros in the name of the folder:
00000_A_Uranium_Edition_New_Effects_V1_Bomb_Bay_Door_Compatible_November_26_2009

Uranium mod is here:

Ok

Cheers mate, away from my gaming computer at the moment but will give it a try tomorrow.

Just checking though are you sure this fire effect spreads with time? I thought the fire effect in any of the so far released packages only acts on the destroyed building and does not spread?

Thanks again mate

Yes, the efect makes a fake spread, growing up and increasing the distance from each particle.
The fire have a duration of 128 seconds and will slowly disapear until reach 128 seconds.
The effect is almost perfect from distance, but not so good in a close camera.

As it is, the mod doesn't seem to recognize the Effects/Explodes/Bullet/Land folder

Fly, the mod does recognize the "Fontain.eff" effect both for cannons and MGs, although for cannon impacts it adds a second effect, "Dustik.eff". To use your effects files instead of the default plutonium ones, just add 000 in front of your effects folder, it will be loaded before the plutonium effects.

Why does this disable the Smaller Fonts mod - they get big again after installing this.

I guess it is because of a class conflict.

sanka,

a few years ago holygrail kindly combined his effects mod with Aed's to give more or less holygrails effects but with slightly more engine smoke in 4.09m.

The best way for you to see what i mean is to try it, so i have uploaded it here.

http://www.mediafire.com/?svc350r1hfqi2uo

You will need to disable any other effects packages, and move the classfiles to get it to work in 4.101 (i use DBW 1.6).

I was wondering if you have the time, would you please be able to implement this in your updated effects please? even as just an option?

Yes, I will look into it as soon as I get the time :)

I tried this mate, but i do not get the fluid fire effect like in the video? All i get is a thick, dense cloud of smoke at the impact point which is a massive fps killer, i do not get any flames or spreading of flames.

On behalf of HolyGrail, i'm allowed to thank you for all the hard work you did to make this mod working on the latest installations of IL2!

He is still watching every now and then and has followed this with great interest.
Unfortunately, his real life got in the way with IL2 modding, so he stepped back. This is why I'm acting as his spokeman with his personal permission. ;)

So thanks for all your hard work! Keep it up!  8)

Thanks a lot for the AI mod compatible version!
Is it compatible with the AI mod version included in DBW build 1.6 or some other version? I hope it stays compatible with future versions since there is a new AI mod version in beta testing with modifications in shared classfiles.

I also noticed that the Mustang engine meshes have incorrect LOD values. You can fix disappearing engines by using these correct values:
[LOD]
25
100
250
500
900

It's based on the AI mod released with DBW 1.6. I can also include a version for the latest beta release, since there's only like 5-6 lines of code to change :) (AI mod already includes the code for airshow smoke and fuel dump effects)
And thanks for the heads up on the LOD values, I'll fix that in the next update.

Was the AI mod activated in your DBW?
The DBW already comes with an AI mod, this version of Plutonium is for a DBW with that AI mod activated.
If this is you case, try to disable the Plutonium and test if the game will crash again.
Because the problem could be in the AI mod.

Or you can use the normal version without AI if you don't have the AI mod activated.

With your UP3 download, you should have a file called "UP sample folder". Unzip it into your main IL2 1946 directory. Then unzip this mod in your newly created #UP# folder.

Brilliant work sanka, really adds to the immersion. Another idea in this area would be if the searchlight 'cone' was much more visible and the effect of lighting up a plane was brighter. At present you can only see a plane caught in a searchlight if you are really close to it.

I think this idea can be implemented quite easily.  ;)

very nice sanka :) One question. This effect is visible only at night ? or also in the late evening like 17:30 when in cokpit is dark ?

The effect appears as the sun gets near the horizon, in the evening and the early morning. It's very slight at first and increases gradually as the night gets darker. 8)
I had to code it this way because of the limitations of the IL2 graphics engine. If it had the same intensity regardless of the hour, the effect would have been much too bright in the evening and the morning.
I'll include this effect in the next update, along with fixes for the Mustang engine LODs.

so i made a folder in my il2 directory called #UP# and i put plutonium effects in and every time something explodes or catches fire, the game crashes, what have i done?

Are you using UP3 RC4 (latest UP3 version)? Also, make sure you have installed Plutonium mod for UP3 (4th link in the first post), and not any other version.
BTW, you have to keep the original folder structure, eg. #UP#/0_0_Plutonium_Universal_Max_Effects_V1

I'm thrilled that the illuminating flak bursts is finally becoming a reality and Sanka is THE MAN for tackling it. But I know this idea has been floating around for some time. I pitched the idea to Checkyersix once and found out he had been tinkering with it all along.

I'm always amazed at the talent around here but Sanka's recent work with Plutonium and now the flak light gets my vote for this years IL2 MVP.

Whilst i'm here do you think it may be possible to have a look at the building fires at some time? With a large ammount of buildings burning the fps really becomes a problem. I posted about it earlier, and santobr directed me to some files to change that may have helped, but unfortunately they still give a big fps hit.

I posted about it earlier, and santobr directed me to some files to change that may have helped, but unfortunately they still give a big fps hit.

The fps problems arise in huge scenes with a lot of fires and smokes. The problem lies not in the effects files themselves, which are fairly well optimized, but rather in the fact that these effects are persistent... I guess the only solution would be to replace the persistence of building fires with a time limit of, say, 1 minute (or maybe more? what do you think?) I can include this in an optional "FPS-friendly" mod.

sanka,

Thanks for the reply mate.

My main interest is the Bomber Command v's Nachtjagd war, with CY6's excellent C&C 2.0 mod we can now have a fairly good representation of this in il-2. Ideally i would like to have some representation of a town/city under heavy bomber attack and on fire, but i do not know if this is possible with il-2 effects without a massive fps drop.

A time limit may be a solution ( 5 mins?), but the problem may be that you would never get that large attack feeling, as fires would keep dying out.

just off the top of my head what about a basic fire that looks good from a distance, but with no smoke attached (you would not notice at night anyway). Would that be fps friendly? it could be an option for night use only.

If not mate a time limit may be the only option.

thanks again sanka for a great mod, and for your reply.

The original is indeed my work (and with the aid of Wolfighter ofcourse).. ;)

It's found here:
http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,10710.0.html
Including a number of other "optimised" effects, like a 2D wingtip vortex effect.

Most of it (apart from the 3D 20mm spiral smoke - which I cannot confirm) should be immediatly compatible with 4.1x, UP3,DBW and such.

I'm a little low on modding power lately, but still active..
Something new is about to be released soon.
And I really should get my lazy butt going for some old stuff i've got on my disc, all unfinished..

I should add that in 410.1 TD has changed the name of an .eff and a .mat file related to the smoketrails (3do\Effects\Textures\fumeefine.eff+fumeefine.mat)...I don't remember but they're related to the 2D intermittent smoketrail (by philipEd?). If you open my repack you'll see what I say.

Any chance to have the flak effect on its own so to be added on a standard plutonium mod? I mean the old one? cheers I still run 4.09...

I tested the 20mm from HGuderian pack and it's working.
The file that enable the 3D for 20mm is the TrailCurved.eff
I disable all other effects and the class file, because I don't know if there is a conflict with other mods.
And I keep the texture and mat files in this folder "3do\Effects\Materials" and the TrailCurved.eff in this folder "\3do\Effects\Tracers".
The "TrailThin.eff" file is for the 7.92mm and 7.62mm.
The "Low" and "Med" files, I think they are for the same caliber depending of altitude when the class file is enabled.

I holp this helps. :)

Edit:
I found no conflict, then I enabled everything and it works perfectly. ;)

Hi Shardana,

Put this file inside your 4.09 Plutonium folder, overwriting the old one: 72DCDDF4D2AD25E8 (http://www.mediafire.com/?6b5g4c862mm1ut4)
Please report back if it works for you (I don't have 4.09 to test, but it should add the flak effect)

Do you have a link?

Please, "3D Smoke Trail" http://forum.aviaskins.com/showpost.php?p=90007&postcount=8 (select the first attach mod_3D Smoke Trail.zip)

If I correctly understood...there's no reason to include in Plutonium every "smoketrails mods" cause they're already compatible with it since they don't use any code file..as stated by HG&P authors.

I've them workin' on my IL2, also if I load them after Plutonium beauty!

Yes, most of these effects should be compatible with Plutonium, as long as they don't touch to the classfiles...
FilMit, did you try loading these tracer mods with Plutonium? If so, is there one of them which is not working?
If you have special effects files you want to include, either load them before Plutonium (by adding "00000" in front of the folders) or simply merge them with Plutonium.

Everything works with Plutonium without problems, but I thought, well, when all in one, without a lot of folders.

If you want to, you can just copy the "3DO" and "Effects" folders from other mods and paste them in the Plutonium folder, overwriting the Plutonium files. This way you will have one neat and tidy folder :)

@sanka

No I haven't looked into it yet, but do you have more info about it? Did HG&P at some point release a version of it?
If I code it from scratch I need some suggestions from you guys :)
Should it replace the standard fire effect for all planes? Or should it appear under certain conditions? Should it only be a visual effect or should it have consequences on the aircraft and pilot? (ie. the plane is no longer at risk of exploding, and the pilot at risk of burning when the fire stops)

Well, as far as i've been told, alot of planned cool effects simply got scrapped because the game engine limits were hit too often with all that graphical stuff going full-bore. :)

As said; i'll try to investigate a bit, try to get a more definitive answer. :)

Sanka,

perhaps  Landing gear damage MOD (http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,7573.0.html) could be fixed for 4.10 use ;) it would compliment your modifications of Plutonium Effects very well I would think :D

Actually I looked a bit into this mod when it was requested last time for 4.10.
It is quite "easy" to adapt to 4.10. It's basically a few lines to add to each aircraft class. So it is a simple, but very long and tedious task (the original mod modified 71 files, but there will probably be a lot more if you want to add all the 4.10 and modded planes).
So if anybody of you guys would like to give me a hand so that we can split up the work, I'd appreciate it. You don't have to know java, just know how to copy and paste.  :)

You need these two files from the other effect:
FireGND.eff
FireSPD.eff

And you need the "mat" file that is cited inside these files. Ex:
../TEXTURES/DamageFire.mat

Finaly, you need the texture cited inside the mat file: Ex:
DamageFire.tga

Each file in the folder that it was.

As a word of advice: I would make them "compatible" instead of combining..

This gives users the choice to use it or not, as both mods ask alot from the game engine.

Brilliant job mate, the flak light effect in the cockpit is superb.

I have a few things to add though, have you seen here :-

its a compilation of FX revolution and plutonium at aviaskins, i was wondering if you could add the engine fire to your mod please? give it a try i think it looks more realistic, also the bomb explosion effect.

Is there any chance of adding the dynamic light effect to airplane fires please? It would be good if the airplane had a sort of orange glow effect similar to the fire, at the moment the fires give off no light at all, this is ok in the day but at night its a bit of an immersion killer.

see here for example :-
http://www.afwing.com/art/boxart/he219.JPG

Can the dynamic light that lights up the airplane from searchlights be much brighter please? planes caught in a searchlight beam should be visible for miles around, rather than a few hundred meters like the default effect.

see here, but brighter

http://www.bigwing.net/images/mossie21.jpg

Can searchlight beam be more intense and have greater distance? also light up cloud base from below so that aircraft are sillouhetted? see images below

http://www.skylighters.org/slimages3/beams.jpg

http://airminded.org/wp-content/img/scenery/bremerton-1942.jpg

http://www.skylighters.org/4thaac/sldisplay12.jpg

http://www.constable.ca/caah/overhamburg.jpg

Finally another addition to immersion can be found here :-

http://allaircraftsimulations.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=5056

Buffy's flak v.5 adds some bright orange fire balls to the flak, it looks really good alongside your light effects, give it a try, just make sure it loads before your mod.

Thanks again mate for an excellent addition

cheers

- Make sure you have the latest version of the mod
- Make sure Plutonium gets loaded first among your mods (add 0000 in front of the Plutonium folder name if you're not sure)
- Disable "Mods files cache" in the IL2 launcher
- Remove file ~wrapper.cache in your #UP# folder

Slipper, good ideas, I'll include an increased visibility of searchlights in a future update, along with light from mid-air explosions. As for aircraft fires, it could be nice addition; I'll look if it's possible.
BTW, a special version with no smokes at night is in the works ;) I'll see if it improves FPS when bombing large areas. Anybody has a nice mission file with plenty of bombers dropping their load on a huge city? It would help me test it :)
About the other effects (FX revolution and such): can't you just combine them with Plutonium? Or are they incompatible?

Also, did someone with 4.09 test the flak light effect for the original Plutonium (http://www.mediafire.com/?6b5g4c862mm1ut4)? Does it work correctly? I'd like to add it in the first post.

Hi Sanka! Great job! Thank you very much. I want to ask if you have any plans to to combine Full_Throttle (http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,4031.0.html) and IL-2 1946 Plutonium Universal Max Effects for 4.10?

Thanks mate, for looking into the suggestions i had above. Very glad to here the no smokes version is on its way  :)

I have combined the 3D0 and effects folders from FX revolution in the link i gave you, with your mod and all appears to run ok with nice engine fires. But i am not sure if i am missing something, would all the classfiles reference the same effects files and such?

By the way mate, did you try Buffy's flak effects i mentioned above? They complement your mod really well i think.

cheers mate.

p.s i could knock up a trial mission for you if you like, although i am having a bit of a problem at the moment with ctd's ( i think i am near the java limit with my DBW 1.6 installation), let me know mate.

Hi sanka,

Can't tell you how much I hoped someone would fix the class files for Plutonium. One of my favorites. Best FPS on my computer.

Thank youuuu, you are a gentleman and a scholar.  ;)

Hi Sanka! Great job! Thank you very much. I want to ask if you have any plans to to combine Full_Throttle (http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,4031.0.html) and IL-2 1946 Plutonium Universal Max Effects for 4.10?
Isn't the full throttle mod already included in DBW?
DBW, as far as I know, is only intended for offline.
I guess to use Plutonium Universal Max Effects by HolyGrail & Potenz for IL-2 1946 4.10 - v2 and Full_Throttle mod in the online projects... :)

Full Throttle mod should be compatible with Plutonium anyway. There is just one small classfile that conflicts. Test it and tell me if it works.

The reference for aircraft fire effects hasn't changed in Plutonium, so I think you're safe using FX revolution fires.
Don't worry about the mission, I'll create something quickly (like a bunch of Lancasters dropping tallboys on Berlin)

Mod Full_Throttle (http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,4031.0.html) has a conflict with the version 4.10. If you use this mod in version 4.10, the game crashes over time, with reference to an "error reading memory." "The memory could not be read." Probably, the conflict code 4.09 and 4.10 versions.

I think the problem is in the 3D, because the effects need some hook from the 3D to know where to put the particles.
An easy way to know is in the startup of the engine, if the flames and smokes are too high again then the problem is in the hook of the 3D mesh.

I think this is something about ships.ini and technics.ini not related to the class files, but ship inferno effect is missing yet.
Maybe the ship's turrets are too strong to be destroyed in DBW.

it works great, very few complaints, and the ones i have are minor. 1: i was on youtube and saw a startup flame effect witch thought was really cool, and it said it was in the new plutonium mods, so i decided to get the mod, and it didnt work, only got it as the prop blades form the continious circle, and 2: there were supposed to be small blue flames from the exaust ports continiously and only found on the sea hurricane IIc, and finally 3: some ships lost smoke effects from damage entirely, so, i dont know if theres a corrupted file or something, but other than that, utterly THE BEST effects mod ive ever seen.

P.S. in the next update, do you think you could add the damaged landing gear mod? its somewhere in the guest mods section.

Blue flames only at ~85% and higher throttle I believe.

If I do that a lot of the fires and the mushroom clouds dissappear, I guess because of the Java limit.  I've substituted the fires for some less java intensive ones which allow many more fires at one time but still I cannot display the aftermath of one tallboy on screen at once.  Does everybody else have this issue?  Playing with DBW

If you bomb a big city, the number of particles exceeds, due to the buildings burning, and the IL-2's engine will only show the camera's nearest particles.
But this happens also with the default effects, its a engine's limitation, there is nothing we can do.
Tip:
Try to increase the destruction level of the city in FMB.

Thanks Santo.  :) The fires I'm using are the fluid ones you posted for Slipper - can have about twice as much fire as before and the smoke looks better also, so thanks for that.

One thing though - there was mention of the fires ending after 128 seconds, but mine continue indefinately - do you have any idea why that might be?

Of course, thanks again Santo.  There's a lot of eff files in the "house" folder - you don't happen to know which one to change?  I'll experiment if not, just wonder if you know off the top of your head.

El_Marta - I have these burning ship effects - is that what you're looking for?

TICI - The continuous building fires you want are contained in the plutonium mod posted by Sanka at the beginning of this topic.

I don't know where I got my ship fires but you can get the ones in the above pic here.

http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,20819.0.html

Also the alternative fires that Santobr posted earlier are in there, and they don't time out either.  It's for DBW, but should be easy enough to get it to work in UP3 or whatever.

It's a compilation of my personal favourite mods  :)

Thx El_Marta

Tested in DBW but the carrier did not burn. The other effects are great but the Flak eats too much fps. I weonder if i am missing anything else because in no version of 4.1 I get smoking or burning damaged ships.

I think - I think - I've gotten this straightened out now. I realized I needed to install the effects designed for use with the AI MOD. Since doing so, the bomb bay doors function properly in DBW.

El_Marta - I haven't tried with a carrier but to get the pic I posted I just created a naval battle with four ships on each side and they set each other on fire.  That happens when I have no mods activated apart from my compilation and the ai mod, so I doubt you're mising something.  Unless it's something to do with the aircraft weapons.  Maybe the bombs/rockets are not poweful enough to set the ships on fire?

Does this mean that the bomb bay door problem exists for everybody when using plutonium mod in up3 and DBW but not DBW with AI mod?

El_Marta - just tested it again with a carrier - if I put the carrier in my sea battle i see this:
(http://i1207.photobucket.com/albums/bb480/luketastic/il2fb_2012_01_09_23_21_49_398.jpg)

If I drop 250kg bombs on it from an f6 I see this:
(http://i1207.photobucket.com/albums/bb480/luketastic/il2fb_2012_01_09_23_38_54_063.jpg)

After a few minutes the fires burn themselves out and the ship smokes like this:
(http://i1207.photobucket.com/albums/bb480/luketastic/il2fb_2012_01_09_23_51_01_710.jpg)

However, I bombed it once with a b-25 using 500kg bombs and it sank very easily with no fire and just a small column of smoke, and I see no fires if I play the Kamikaze default track

EDIT - Just ran my sea battle again using only the plutonium mod for DBW with the ai mod posted by Sanka at the beginning of this topic and I see exactly the same fires.  So you DO NOT need my compilation to see these fires.  Although there is lots of other nice visual stuff in there    :D

I think Santobr mentioned something about making the guns easier to destroy so that fires would start more easily on ships?

I'm afraid the ships will be unchanged from plutonium.  I thought they might be from a different mod cos I've compiled loads together over the last year.  The ships do burn, but not as easily as people would like I guess.  Still, enjoy the other stuff!

Ok, I tested the ship (Aicraft carrier) in the Kamikaze track and you are correct, the ship when hit just stops but no damage or fire. So yes there is an issue with the ships. For the rest everything is ok.

You are correct. I just tested an attack on a submarine and hitting it with rockets I was able to destroy it but very very little flames and a little smoke. For the aircraft carrier  there is nothing .So definetely the ships are very hard to kill and to have effects on them. The rest seems very good .

OK I found where ships.ini is ( Files/com/maddox/IL2/objects) and I changed the parameters. Now the difference is mainly noticebale in attacking a submarine  where it cach fire just strafing, if you attack a merchant ship with rockets now you see more damage and eventually sink but no fire and on the kamikaze track the aircraft carrier still just stops without any fire. So it definitely need some correction in this direction, because it should be for all the ships when hit by rockets or bombs what it is now with submarine.
Any suggestions ?

Yes. no issues except for the fire and sinking of the ships which are not an issue of this mod anyway . It has been an issue of HSFX 5.01 from start. Hopefully somebody knows how to change the parameters of the ships in ships.ini so that they are more vulnerable for the fire and sinking.
As far as this mod it works very well on HSFX 5.01 .

Just an observation. :)
The ships will not be more vulnerable for sinking, only the small guns will be more vulnerable to near miss explosions and direct hits.
I think this way it is more realistic because these small guns are only soldiers in a machine gun or small cannon without any armor protection. ;)

Hi Guys,
Is it possIble to make burning aircraft smoke little bit "heavier" in some heavy damages?
The one from the original plutonium mod seems to light sometimes...
Something like this:

Thank You Santobr,
Tested this mod months ago - this smoke is too heavy and too "cinema - fancy" I think.
I don't know how to do it by myself, but maybe somebody will be able to add heavier smoke as an option?

Can the HFSX 5.01 effects be exported to use in other installs? Or are they coded into sfs files?

Would like to try the HFSX effects in my DBW install if possible.

first of all, sorry if I repeat this question because i really didnt feel like looking through all 21 pages for my answer.
second of all, is there a way to make the fuel tank smoke, well, more realistic? I mean, I want darker, thicker smoke for it. There is almost no smoke for it now, and not trying to be mean or anything, but thats the one thing I hate about this mod. Other than that though, this mod is excellent.

Do you mean a fuel tank leak? When I have an engine or fuel tank FIRE, I see plenty of thick smoke!

no, I mean when the fuel tank flames, there is just a thin trail of hazy grey smoke. the smoke from Gurner's 4.1 feul tank is what i think is perfect.

This is because smokes are very rare in real life WWII aerial battles.
This mod is based in gun cameras, and you will see no smoke but only fire in almost all WWII footage.
This mod is not intended to be beautiful, but simply real, respecting the limitations of the IL-2 graphic engine.

If you like Hollywood effects you can try Cinema Special FX mod by Socorrista.
It's an awesome mod with a lot of beautifull effects made to improve the Plutonium effects.

Here you go: ;)

OK, I checked on myself and this seems to be incompatible with AI, Engines, Hotkeys & carriers and/or JetWar 1.2 and, as a result, DBW 1.71 wich contains it. I noticed that when I try to dump fuel on one of the jets with Plutonium installed, game crashes. I can post log if you want, but I think its really easy to reproduce.

Also, if latest AI, Eng, HK & Car version 2.5 and/or latest western's CTO mod is installed, the game doesn't start at all with Plutonium Enebled - it crashes at 0% without even crating log.

It's impossible to make one version to each mod that conflicts with Plutonium and another to each new DBW version, that's why we need it included in DBW.
Plutonium is the base to new effects mods, this is another reason too.

I agree as well, Plutonium has set new standards of visual effects in IL-2. I can't understand the arguments like 'effects mods should be left to player's taste' or 'some may prefer stock effects' because they make no sense - stock effects look like vomit, and most of currently available effects mods are based on Plutonium, so if Plutonium is incompatible we're left with stock crap. We need this in DBW badly.

btw, new fuel drop and jet exhaust effects would be nice improvements to this mod I think.

Because the effects can cause issues for those running on lesser machines.
Not me, my PC is a beast, but not everyone has had the fortune that we have had to afford top shelf hardware.
Besides, effects really are a personal thing. Just look at any effects thread at how many people object to this, want to change that etc.
you think the stock effects look like poo, well good for you that's your opinion. Some like them.
No reason to force a matter of taste on everyone.

I don't agree with ALWAYS waiting for the people with PCs of +8 years old. We are supposed to be looking for greater looks. Do we dump cockpit repaints and map texturizing because of them? no. So effects carefully studied for fps (as plutonium) shouldn't be exception. Certain things should be standard and then people can neutralize or change specific things they "don't like". Also I have to say that people is waaaaaay too spoiled -not you, but I know some cases ("I don't like this" "I don't like that"....pffff they can play stock if they wish)

I always found better FPS with Plutonium over stock anyway So i think a standardisation of effects for DBW makes complete sense, once this has been done am sure it would not be long for a lightened version to come around for those with older machines, if it was even necessary, The Format is the important thing for compatability anyway

Agree with what been said, even really bad PC's handle plutonium better than stock effects yet it looks hundredths of time better than stock.
The only reason I can see for not including HG&P effects into DBW is the fact that there are tons of other effects and mods that uses classfiles that wouldnt work with it.

Beside I think that HG&P effects will end up in UP3 at some point, I dont see it any other way.

All new effects mods made after Plutonium have class files based on Plutonium's class files, so it will be more easy to effects makers too. ;)

My machine is a low end machine, and I can fly with Plutonium without problem:
AMD Athlon 64 X2 2.7
4GB RAM DDR2
ATI Radeon HD3450 250MB (this is embarrasing :P)
Windows 7 Pro

I have AMD 3500+ 3gb ram win XP  old card GF7800 GT :D (Does anyone have something worse?? ) :D
With, or without Plutonium no difference for FPS at all ,I replace GF7800 GT on GF450 i have 50% more FPS now

So if someone have FPS drop, basically it is a problem with your configuration, or you buy some great dual, quad core CPU with vista or Win 7 on board when you losing 50% power for operating system and some useless Antivirus, firewall, ect software

I have an old Pentium 4, myself, but I agree with crazyflak that all progress must not be held up because of this, I just think we must ensure that the older versions of the various packs should be kept available for the people with the older machines, so that they can run them. That way, everybody can maximise their install.

Guys, I have just a crappy GT240 gpu, i3 530 cpu, 4 GB ram and 32 bit system and i have no problems with those effects

If all game delvelopers and modders kept grapghics crappy to be sure all players can run it, games like Crysis or Battlefield 3 would never come out and we would still be stick to HL engine in modding. But they didn't - we've got Frostbite 2 and CyEngine 3 on market, and modders are using UE3 for now.

IL-2 must step forward instead of steping backward. UP2 had Uranium and UP3/DBW? - stock crap.

Why is it that big of a deal for Yall to just add it to your mods folder?
That's the part I don't get, people just sound lazy. I don't see a compelling reason for making it part of dbw.
Granted I'm not involved in it so my opinion matters as much as the rest-not one bit.
But really now, what fundamental problems will be solved? Seems unnecessary.

I don't see a compelling reason for making it part of dbw.
Maybe there is no "compelling reason" for making it part of dbw and in fact it would probably be very inconvenient, such a big mod will most likely collide with lot of other mods and it will inhibit customization capabilities of dbw.
Yet there is a very good reason for including it in UP3 (and by proxy in DBW).
UP3 servers often set crt=2 which forces you to play online with "crap" stock effects.
Lame as it is the only way around it, its by including it in UP3.
And since HG&P its the most comprehensive effects mod at the moment and it works faster on really old and low-performance hardware and at the same time it looks a whole lot better than stock effects there is no reason not to include it.

So when HG&P comes to UP3, DBW could add an option to disable HG&P so people could continue to use effects of their own choice and mods which otherwise would conflict with HG&P effects.

Yea but, in case you haven't noticed yet, this version of Plutonium is INCOMPATIBLE WITH LATEST DBW 1.71 - game crashes when dumping fuel in jets. And if you use AI, Eng, Hkeys & Carriers mod v. 2.5 which is most likely going to be a standard and be included in next DBW, after installing Plutonium the game DOESN'T START AT ALL. So it's not a prblem of our lazyness - I DID HAVE IT IN MODS FOLDER BEFORE, but I had to remove it due to incompatibility with elements, which e.g. for me, flying mainly jets, make some important functions unplayable.

As santobr suggested the best way to keep it compatible is to make Plutonium standard for DBW, so other mods for DBW which change just single, minor effects would be based on that.

It's too expensive here in Brazil because of the super big taxes. :'( :P

I see that some guys do like stock effects, so, if this is the problem, I can make new stock effects compatible with plutonium as an option, or you can play stock 4.11m.
If you don't like stock effects and you prefer other effects mod, you need to know this:
All new effects mods made after Plutonium have class files based on Plutonium's class files, so it will be more easy to effects makers too.
It's already a standard. ;)

Of course you are missing something that you not noticed yet.
Because there is a conflicting classfile. ;)
If you load the AI mod first, you miss some effects and if you load the Plutonium first you miss some features.
This is fact. :)

I placed the downloaded folder in my #UP# folder and nothing happened -

then I tried it as a JSGME instal mod and nothing happened -

My game loads fine but the stock effects of smoke and fire are still in my game which is 4.10.1 UP3

when I downloaded version two (V2) unzipped the version 2 folder it had version 1 in it - ??

MY MODS FOLDER HAS NO OTHER EFFECTS MODS WHICH WOULD CONFLICT
so is there a d/l link for the actual version2 anywhere? because this link is for version 1 http://www.mediafire.com/?srrcfs9bbtbp5sk (http://www.mediafire.com/?srrcfs9bbtbp5sk)

Nope , this effects pack have been adapted for IL-2 4.10 version only.
Sure it can work by removing majority of class files more likely all class files included
with this effect pack but then many of the custom effects will not work .

Edit: I found another FX mod here and tried and the smoke looks more realistic now. So thx in case you wanted to assist  but I was able to help myself. ;)

2nd Edit: I notice when DL the V2 that ingame the folder says V1 - so is that the newer version then!?  o_O
