Title: UPDATE 3: IL-2 1946 Plutonium Universal Max Effects V1 Mod [4.09]
Post by: SAS~HolyGrail on June 23, 2010, 12:31:17 PM
Alert !................................................Alarm !........................................... Achtung !...........................................Attention !.........................................:D

IL-2 1946 Plutonium Universal Max Effects V1 Mod OFF-LINE/ON-LINE

Developed on: UP 2.01 game install version !
Also tested on older modded versions V4.08m & V4.09b1m and you have to
make sure Bomb Bay Door plus mod is installed in your game main MODS folder
with those older game install versions as UP 2.01 have bomb bay door mod plus
installed as default otherwise your game will crash .

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 .

Plutonium Universal Max Effects Mod IS EXPLICITLY NOT COMPATIBLE with these mods which some of these due to the Java class files conflict:

00_PAT_MOD
00_USL_ADDONS
00_WARBIRDSOFPRAY
00_ZUTI_DSMOD ( any version )
HG&P PLATINUM EFFECTS MOD
HG&P URANIUM EFFECTS MOD
Older versions of IL-2 1946 PLUTONIUM MAXIMUM EFFECTS MOD
FX_REVOLUTION MOD
B29_Silver_Plate mod
Mosquito B mod and SP B29 MKXVI Effects fix for HSFX and UP
P-51 Hydraulics Version 2



MOD INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Unzip mod
2. Open IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 game folder
3. Open " MODS " folder
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac90/HolyGrail_photos/Install1.jpg)
4. Place Plutonium mod inside MODS folder in to the left upper corner to make sure game is reading mod first to prevent any possible conflict when in doubt with some of the other mods .
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac90/HolyGrail_photos/Install.jpg)
Use only Effects=0 or Effects=1 setting in your conf.ini file
Effects=2 setting was never recommended by Oleg & 1C and it is causing known smokes textures flickering bug , changing smokes color and causing rather a huge FPS decrease .
That's all , just close IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 folder and you're ready to go .

Plutonium mod is fully compatible with these examples of visual enhancing mods but it is not a complete list:
Code: [Select]
1. 00_HG&P_Ricochet_Gunsmoke_Bullets_2D_Smoketrail
2. Tracermod + VVS/Russian tracer fix mod by Eexhaton
3. Torpedo Trails mod by Fly!
4. 3D German 20mm Cannon Spiralsmoke mod by Eexhaton
5. Combined Contrail Fixes v2 mod by CirX
6. ANY CLOUDS MOD
7. Big Bombs Explosion Effects [Final Version] mod by Santobr
8. ShipTrail mod by Fly!
9. Philip.ed's New Intermittent Smoketrail Tracer MOD V1
10. GUNFIRE Day & Night gunfire mod with alpha channels added by Fly!
11. 00_DaddersmuzzleflashlowfatV2 mod by Dadder
12. UP's 00_Advanced_Engine Management
13. UP's 00_AlternativeFMs
14. UP's 00_Atm_mod_Original
15. UP's 00_Atm_modv3.1Wind_Turb&Prop
16. UP's 00_Perfect_Map_Textures
17. UP's 00_RealisticBomb&TorpedoFusing
18. UP's 00_ZloyPetrushkO_AAAmod_fast
19. UP's 01_CumulativeShipsDamage
20. UP's 01_TougherBridges
21. UP's 01_TougherTrains
22. UP's 02_CarrierTakeoffMod_5.3.3
23. Any other mod that do not have included any of the same 39 effects files or Java class files of the effects that are listed above

NOTE:
There won't be JSGME version for jsgmemods folder because if Plutonium effects mod will be selected via JSGME application , it will be ovewritten with a zillion other incompatible old effects mods inside game main MODS folder and creating chaos in install and actual in-game visual effects.
Plutonium explosions , ground damage smokes , battleship guns blast smokes & flash effects were tuned and optimized for less GPU and CPU demand with significantly less demand for emit , particles and textures size to make sure they're all together staying within the game engine limits and they should not be replaced with separated effects with other differently configured mods created by other members .
Mod needs to remain as it is , do not move folders , files , there is extra folder and some of the effects have been switched between each other as it was also done with previous Uranium mod.
Mod is using only small 17kb and even few smaller size textures .

Thursday , July 08 , 2010 NEW CHANGE:
1. removed clouds folder to avoid compatibility issues with available clouds mods
2. .303 and 0.50 caliber bullets hit to the ground smoke effect caused drop in FPS which is now tuned and no more happening with also assigned new color
3. .303 and 0.50 caliber bullets hits to the water splash effect caused drop in FPS which is now no longer happening with the same rainbow color effect

Saturday , October 23 , 2010 NEW CHANGE:
1. House & Bushes fire reduced to 13 minutes only ( very slow smoke is continuing to be infinite )
2. Bullets and Cannon water splash was changed from blended texture effect back to normal texture effect
leaving only bombs explosions with blended texture effect ( inreased FPS for cannon bullets water splash )
3. Edited some of the jet aircraft engine smoke at full power like Yak-3R Prop/Rocket Hybrid ,
BI-1 Rocket Fighter , BI-6 Rocket/Ramjet Hybrid etc..........................................
4. Cleaned all of the annoying game console INTERNAL ERROR: Str2FloatClamp() errros
that did belong to Plutonium mod by addjusting some of the .eff and .mat files values exactly to the game engine requested range specification
5. Removed any .mat and textures leftovers files that have had anything to do with bullets smoketrails
6. Engine wrong fuel mixture smoke edited
7. Cars and trucks fire texture was replaced with house fire texture for better color
8. Edited ground fuel tanks fire for better color

Special thanks to:
Anders_And for testing and advice for the best on-line timing for houses and bushes fire .
Eexhaton for testing

Post by: SAS~HolyGrail on June 23, 2010, 12:31:32 PM
READ THIS:

If you suspect that all of a sudden aircraft damage smokes have changed for some reason appearance
or length or transparency color , you have likely conflict with some other mod with class files .
It might happen even if Plutonium mod is inside MODS folder as the first one to be read by game .
Please , if your game crash , do not just say it crashed , say at least which IL-2 1946 game install version are you running .
As a rule of thumb is to disabling all other mods , starting with Plutonium mod enabled only and then adding other mods back one after another and testing each time if the game works .
It might sound to be a pain in the ass process but with current game versions and zillion mods it's the only way to find out which mod is causing crash or conflict .
Keep in mind that Plutonium have 70 class files included , there are other mods like oxygen breathing mask mod or Histomod_Pack and some other which will likely conflict , we have not tested everything since it would take another year to download all stuff and testing each by each .
Basic easy game installs without hundreds of other various mods is working like a charm .
Whatever other mod you want to have included running with Plutonium , you will have to try
each if it works or if the game crash with it .
Me personally , I have only 4 or 5 additonal effects mod like bulllets smoketrails , and dadders muzzle flash mod for reducing guns light circus , few others easy mods without class files and pretty much nothing else .
It runs also on Potenz's game install , it runs also on Wolfighter's game install .
At this point with various game install versions and mods developments , it's almost impossible to create
" working for all approach " right out of the bat when so many class files are edited .
Everyone will have to find and disable the " other mod " which is conflicting if you want to use Plutonium Universal Max Effects mod .

Ok, I found a few "bugs" of this mod. While starting yak 1 get the fire from engine in the wrong place. Same thing happens with the latest spit (one from a mod, i cannot remember the name, spit XXXV i guess considering the amount of them). Also while flying one of the exhausts (on the right side the one closest to the pilot) never gets blue flame in any hurry, p51 or spit. I will be testing more engine starts.

stupid question: I know it's not compatible with b-29 mod, but is this compatible with UP 2.01 without disabling b-29 silverplate ?

Post by: SAS~Malone on December 15, 2010, 11:55:08 PM
Redrum, it adds it to planes using Merlin engines; Hurri, some late-model Spits and P-51's.

@ghost500: it'll work without disabling the silverplate, you might lose the bomb effect of the silverplate, though... ;)

Post by: CWMV on December 16, 2010, 10:05:56 AM
Just noticed that this also adds flames to the P-51A that was recently released. That was an Allison powered AC if I'm not mistaken.
Regardless looks great.

Post by: Ala13_Kokakolo on December 16, 2010, 10:34:30 AM
And it also changes the flames on the start up to most planes. The most beautiful thing are the blue flames on merlin engines, I hope that will be added to german and japanesse planes in the future.

Hi guys, I'm new to Il-2 1946. I spent a lot of time patching up the game to 4.09m and then installing the mod activator, and then installing this plutonium mod pack. I started up the game and everything seems to be good but then when I start my campaign at 100% loading the game CTD. I try the instant mission builder and I can actually play for maybe 2 seconds and then an error message appears stating that il2fb.exe has stopped working and then I get a CTD.

I've managed to localize the problem down to the plutonium effects mod by taking all the mods out of my MOD folder and this seems to be the problem.

Can anyone help? Thanks a lot guys

The only difference is that your own handywork applies to an almost idling engine..

The exhaustfumes on HG's mod only appear at 90%+ power..
But maybe with some backward-engineering...

Getting exhaust effects to look right is a tough job in a flight sim.  In real life, the flames are pretty much invisible in daylight, but often in flight sims they are highly visible in the brightest of ambient light.  I'll have to give this a try as it does not look over done.

I would recommend toning down the big flames during cranking.  Flames like that indicate an engine that has been way over primed.

I need help! T_T
If the Plutonium Effects are installed, my game crash after a few second, when the gameplay (flying) starts. I deleted the PAT_MOD, and the B-29 Silverplate (because the first post says it's not compatible with them), but it still crash.
I run 4.09m, without any other effect mod. The only "effect" what I have is only the ScreenshotPropeller mod.

I have this error message:

Dinosbacsi ,
since you're not running UP version you need also to install Bomb Bay Door Plus Mod in order to prevent Plutonium mod crash because BBD plus mod is included in UP by default and Plutonium mod is compatible with it , so you need BBD plus mod to be installed  :)

hehe , that Hungarian error message is cool looking :D ;D

Dear mates!

I can't tell you how much I look farward to your update for 4.10....the game look too old!

Anyway I noticed something about effects:

1) a water splash is added (Towards the end of The black dead when the last 190 fall into the river is the more evident)

2) such amoebae that falls like snow!!!

(http://b.imagehost.org/t/0550/29_12_2010_13-28-31.jpg) (http://b.imagehost.org/view/0550/29_12_2010_13-28-31)

(http://b.imagehost.org/t/0401/29_12_2010_13-28-32.jpg) (http://b.imagehost.org/view/0401/29_12_2010_13-28-32)

3) Perhaps a torpedo deep dinamic that hide the trail at the start of the course because in Beau_Torp I don't notice the torpedo trail before the impact (I have noticed it in some test I make for Ashes ships but since I use 4x speed I miss to notice it immediately)

All the best!

Hi walter_solito  :)
that used to be debris during ships torpedo and ships bombs explosions but that
was with older Plutonium mod version , I have noticed that such bigger chunks are highly
unrealistic to fall slow like a snow and while it was previously overlooked , it is fixed
for fast debris blast .
Now when torpedo hits the ship , you will notice very fast debris flying to all directions
as it should be .
No more this slow thingy  :D ;D
I see you have mixed Plutonium mod with socorrista's smoke textures and perhaps
didn't wanted to change for latest Plutonium mod version ? that seem to be likely the
case as to why you still have slow flying debris chunks  :)

S!  8)

Something is strange in the pictures. ::)
I don't have that kind of green debris (I have parts) since  platinum version was released neither that 2d smoke.
So, I conclude you have a mix of effects mods and one of them has some stock effects. ;)

Sorry mates to be many times misleading....my greatets apologize!!!

What I was reporting was my impression of 4.10 , the screenshoot are of the Kamikaze on my 4.10 modded with the installation of some Socorrista effect waiting for the Plutonium update!

I haven't see before that debis so I have thought about them as a something strange on 4.10!

Anyway at point 1 and 3 there is something of intresting.....

I'm sure that from such great effects maker brains can only born an insuperable masterpiece!!!

Oh , I thought that was the previous debris which was fixed  ;D nevermind since you
explained more details so we now know what's going on  :)
Sani is considering to make current Plutonium mod to be compatible with 4.10 but we still
have some additional work to do on effects so the 4.10 version will be likely a blast , eyes
popping out of socket shock stuff  :D ;D 8)

@ santobr ,
I will ask Sani latter on during progress to just adding big bomb necessary 4 or 5 .eff class
file entries so your mod can work and be compatible with those finally again after a long time
and delays  8)

Wow I was just hoping for the blue flames effect for the 109's, but you went in and did the intermittent, throttle dependent, and engine temp variant smoke! Ausgezeichnet!
Will this be in a new update for 4.09, or going straight to 4.10?
Honestly this is one of the handful of mods that I'm waiting on to be 4.10 compatible before I make the move to it.
Good work!

These smoke and flame effects will be divided by engine family...inline V,inverted V and radial engines had some differences in manifestation of these effects...I'll try to appliy it to as many planes as I can.

if so, does anyone still have a download for platinum, as i can't find it anywhere now,

Hi hguderian, thats what i'm using at the moment, and while its 100% better than stock, i've noticed a few effects that don't work properly, which is to be expected without the class files.

I've read a few places that platinum works with 4.10, and can't remember if it had classfiles in it.

would just like to check it in 4.10 to see if it works any better with 4.10

yes i am impatient, lol. (must have eye candy in 4.10!)

Well I put the Plutonium Universal Max Effects V1 Mod in my MODS folder with the Class files in it removed, and it works well enough to replace the aweful default 4.10's 2d ribbon smoke stream, thank God, I'd forgotton how bad it looked, being spoiled for so long by HG&P&S effects mastery :)

I did wonder whether an earlier version would be better than butchering the latest version, but I'm happy with this for now, no odd smokes or anything, just mainly very short fires from wrecks and bombs, but bearable definitely bearable  ;)

Hello Gerson

I still have good old " -00_AAA_August_20_2009_Effects_Platinum_Special_Edition ".I just checked it and I may assure you that it doesn't contain any classFiles.
Here is the ReadMe , just in case.


This is new release with " Ultimate Full 3D Smokes & Fire Effects " mod with completely redesigned all smokes including contrail ,
and new " Additional Aircraft And Ground Effects "  mod with fixed small flak sparks bug and reduced plane fiery parts effects size
all combined in to one easy mod install.
High altitude contrail is now more suited for fighter planes formations and dogfights .
Large high altitude flying bombers formation is causing contrails flickering as the game engine can't handle that many contrails due
to just one B17 4 engine bomber requiring and using already 4 contrails .
Some planes have original game release contrails bug with shifted contrail , which there is nothing we can do about it .
Plane damage smokes were given design importance for prop planes rather than Jet planes due to only one effect file available which
is sharing damage smokes between prop planes and Jet planes , sadly .

------------------------------------------------------------------
Use only Effects=0 or Effecst=1setting in your conf.ini file 
------------------------------------------------------------------
DO NOT USE effects=2 conf.ini file setting

DISABLE or REMOVE if you have installed any of these to avoid files and textures conflicts !!!! :

29. Any previous version of Holygrail & Potenz additional aircraft ground effects mod you might have

Place this 00_AAA_August_20_2009_Effects_Platinum_Special_Edition  mod as the first one in to your game
main mods folder in order for game to read this mod first to prevent conflicts possibility
with any other mod that was forgotten to be disabled or removed .
This version of ships.ini file is a must install if you are using any previous version of ships.ini file
as this file is latest new corrected version by fabianfred .
Previous version caused some of the ships damage smokes bug resulting in cotton balls .

Optional:
Place technics.ini file in to your main mod directory " STD " folder " objects " subfolder
where is also static.ini like :
C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\IL-2 Sturmovik 1946\MODS\STD\com\maddox\il2\objects
in order to have new damage effect available also for static planes .
If you no longer want static planes damage effect , just delete " technics.ini " from the directory
where you placed this technics.ini file inside you STD folder and that's all.


Thank you and enjoy new aircraft damage smokes , fires and ground explosive visual effects experience !!

New version :
00_AAA_August_20_2009_Effects_Platinum_Special_Edition
with reduced Pacific Theater ships small flak effect GPU & CPU processing requirement by 80% for flawless playable FPS .

Hope this help.

yes, the one i'm talking about doesn't contain any classfiles - but don't be scared to experiment.
you could literally try any version, just remove any classfiles and see how it goes. no harm in trying.... ;)
maybe you find a really cool combination that works well, then you can share that info with the rest of us.... 8)

Hy Malone!
I deleted all the classfiles from Plutonium and tryed in 4.10, and did the same with the only classfile contained in Uranium
Tryed first plutonium and could see no improvement on the effects
The same happened with Uranium
I think the classfiles seems to be essencials for those effects to work
I dont have Platinun to give it a try
Can someone post a link to dl the platinun version

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I installed IL-2 1946 for the first time. It's patched to 4.09m with Ultrapack 2.01 on top.

Everything is running smoothly, and I was using the Uranium Effects mod that's available through JSGME in the directory. I saw this new version earlier today, so I deactivated the Uranium one in JSGME and created a MODS folder in the root of the IL2 1946 folder and placed this one inside (as per instructions on first page).

However, the mod doesn't seem to be active. Having seen the videos on Youtube of exhaust flames etc. (very nice by the way!), I don't see anything of the sort.

Is there anything I can check, or is something wrong with the procedure I've followed?

I downloaded Version 1 of the mod shown below the wizard on page 1 (The Christmas update). The folder named '0_0_Plutonium_Universal_Max_Effects_V1' is 2.27MB in size.

Was it wrong to manually add a MODS folder? All the other mods I've activated through JSGME appear to work (e.g. new cockpits) so I'm not sure what to check.

My current list of active mods (not including the Uranium one which I recently deactivated in favour of this one) are shown below. Except for the last two cockpit mods, all the others are installed as part of UP2.01:

Ecran_Wide
Hakenkruz_Enabler
ZloyPetrushkO_AAAmod_fast
TougherBridges
TougherTrains
Atm_mod3.1Wind_Turb&Prop
Perfect_Map_Textures
RealisticBomb&TorpedoFusing
Cockpit_Spitfire
MiG15&17Cockpits (by Freddy)

Thanks for any advice you can give.

Cheers all!

Phoenix20, welcome... :)
it sounds like you've done everything correctly, so it should be working....
if you are referring to the blue exhaust flames, remember that this is currently only implemented for Merlin-powered aircraft types, and is most visible on the later Spitfire's....VIII, for example...remember, it's quite a subtle effect, so it'd be easier to see if you fly at dusk/night..

Hi SAS-Malone, thanks for the welcome!  :)

Well, this is certainly strange. After having problems getting this working yesterday I decided to leave it until today and try again.

I've just launched IL2 and it's working!  ;D No idea why, nothing has changed since last night. Very odd...

I have to say the effects are first class! I love the little details like the bomb shockwave, and those exhaust flames are superb!

Cheers all!

It says it's not compatible with the B29_Silver_Plate mod. But, it's not compatible with the plane, or with the effect whats come with the plane?

I'm gonna go ballistic once this gets to 4.10 :) I've been a hardcore HG&P now also Wolfighter fan! Gotta say, you guys really brought all my realism needs to a full gratifying relief and aboslutely made IL-2 a better simulator. Because your effects, new features and whatnot help simulate real-life within the limitations of the IL-2 game engine ;) So far, one of the most impressive things that you've added (new features you have introduced) is actually the Landing Gear failure mod. I can't get over how cool that is. And that you integrated it so well that it behaves like drag and has random failures :) I am a happy IL-2 simmer, and much of that happiness is owed to you!

That's just my thanks for your contribution :)

You are right, I just didn't want to waste valuable forum space by thanking the team in both threads :)

The mods are seperate, but have the same authors. I believe the landing gear mod will be included in the future, perhaps as an own folder you can put a "-" infront of if you don't like :)

Gerson, classfiles are any of these type of files: 7D8FC8C46F810E3B.....so, any with this naming of numbers and letters.... ;)

Malone,
This is a problem that I see, the crashs occur in 30%, 70%, 95% and 100% loading
when I use 00_Plutonium_Universal_Max_Effects_V1. Everything becomes fine when I remove the calssfile.
Thank you very much

Holla guys, in regards to the class files in the plutonium pack not working with 4.10, i did a little pokin around last night (was bored) and played around with the class files and found only one of them is causing the crash. if u remove file: B27261D242F3990A you should still be able to use the rest of the class files in the plutonium pack... well, in saying that, it is working for me. Only thing ive found thou is that there is no black smoke..... doh!

Keep up the good work, I'm not going anywhere and I get the feeling Dino isn't either (glued to sas forums on his monitor ;) ) So we'll know when there's news :) I can live with Uranium effects as they beat the heck out of stock version..

Go play all day with your zippo for all I care  ;)

Here's the one

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jxKligZ-8Lk


I think the more violent blaze is more realistic though... the intermittent-ness is too violent for realism though (on-off like a light switch) with no soft flickering... I think that is why they went away from that design, also that it was perfectly synced with all other fires so it looked weird. Also at the time they didn't do classfile editing so the blaze effect looked the same either if you were going 400km/h or standing still burning on the ground. Which looks odd.. unless you're in a storm :p

I have installed this mod today, and I see the exhaust flames if engine is started
but no flames during flight, also not at night, tested it with P51 D and early Spitfire

is the flames during flight from the exhaust not in this mod ?

Hi KG3_V ,
just make sure you're not running landing gear damage mod as it is
conflicting with this latest version of Plutonium mod due to some
of the aircraft class files used for motor effects editing .
Sani did classes editing for landing gear mod to be compatible with
Plutonium mod but I just have not throughly tried and tested how it
works now with latest Plutonium mod .
We're talking both mods 4.09 versions only thus far , unfortunately .

Cheers ,
S! HG  :)

Post by: SAS~HolyGrail on February 24, 2011, 07:43:46 AM
In my case if the latest version of Plutonium effects mod is used which have the new engine start up flame and also Landing gear damage mod 1.3 is used , the start up flame will not show up until landing gear damage mod is disabled even if Plutonium mod is loaded first .
When Sani was working on motor effects he did send me edited classes for landing gear mod compatibility with Plutonium effects mod but I have not tested that yet .
I don't know did Sani released somewhere that fix ?  :o
I am finally getting back in to this after small break to have one last release and will test the classes today if the new start up flame is working together with landing gear damage mod fixed classes .

Working on it....... :D

Holygrail,

I would like to ask you a favour please

I was wondering if or when you update your effects package for 4.101, or even the new UP when it comes out. If you may somehow be able to provide a building fire effect, that does not affect fps much, and looks good at night please?
The reason i ask is that following a discussion here

http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,14516.0.html

for the release of sputnikshocks nightfighting map.  a solution is needed to represent a bombed out/burning city at night. At the moment with a lot of buildings on fire it is a big frame rate killer, although the effects are amazing.

If a simpler effect could be produced, that looked ok and allowed a large area of fire to be simulated, that would be absolutley brilliant. Maybe the effects file could just be swapped in or out into your package as needed?

I know nothing about the complexities of producing this effect or if it is even possible, but figure if anyone can do it you can  :)

Do you think it may be possible?

regards and thanks for a great mod

slipper  :)

Post by: SAS~HolyGrail on March 16, 2011, 02:50:31 PM
Hi slipper  :)

I know what you mean , yes , a lot of houses on fire can be demanding on the system and there is one easy trick which can be used yet still looking great and simulating house fires .
Fluid fire as it is right now in Plutonium mod is looking great but any further reduction in fluid flames appearance will start looking pretty bad and the only way to reduce system demand on this kind of fire is to completely replacing current house fluid fire for previous Uranium mod design which used fire glow .
Fire glow is perfectly acceptable visually and it looks excellent from especially higher altitude as there are videos on YouTube of that Uranium fire glow effect of cities burning plus it don't need much resources at all in order to appear in bigger masses without FPS hit  8)
Basically we can keep all other fluid fires as they are currently in Plutonium mod for cars , trucks , tanks , bushes etc..... while replacing only house fire with fire glow .
A win win situation for any FPS concern regarding any bigger massive cities destruction while having house fire glow effect simulating burning cities  :)
I was thinking about it quite a while ago but we were not sure if that would go well with IL-2 community .
Please , let me know your thoughts about this :

Here is the video how the cities will look using back Uranium fire glow effect for houses only :

PS: Me and Sani are trying to finish this 4.09 version with aircrafts new motor effects and then it can be converted to 4.101 as soon as possible  :)
UP will have also new effects .

That would still require the target area to be populated though wouldn't it? I think the best solution for the NJ maps would be a bomb that just burns when it hits the ground, that way there is no need to populate the maps.
Perhaps attach a similar effect to incendiary loads so that they just burn like that when they hit the ground?
HG, I remember you explaining that IL2 has a huge problem with all the particles these effects spawn, is there any way to remove the smoke from these fires? Wouldnt that also help with frame rates?

I thought that map will be polulated with some houses or not ? if yes those will burn after bombing by using fire glow which is not requiring a lot of resources since yes , this game engine can't handle much so we need to do some balancing to have it all and still looking great and without FPS hit :D
Houses will be likely using only fire glow effect without smoke as the smoke will cover fire glow making it almost impossible to be seen from higher altitude so there would be no smoke or very light transparent smoke veeeery slowly bubbling not taking any necessary resources  ;D

for the release of sputnikshocks nightfighting map.  a solution is needed to represent a bombed out/burning city at night. At the moment with a lot of buildings on fire it is a big frame rate killer, although the effects are amazing.

So are there houses or not on this new map regarding bombing and house fires ? or should there be
some kind of effect which will be only simulating fires on the ground without damaged objects ?
There don't have to be a lot of houses in order to have a nice simulation of burning cities without FPS hit by using fire glow effect .

HolyGrail,

Thanks for the reply mate, the video looks amazing, just what i was imagining. My apologies the map is not populated at the moment, my earlier post i was refering to buildings in general on any map.

I believe though that the only reason Sputnikshock is not populating the map, is because of fps issues due to fire effects.

I will post over at his mapmaking post to make him aware of what you are capable of doing, i cannot speak for him but it may change his mind as to populating the map.
sorry for the confusion

I got to run to work , just wanted to say that campfire is animated effect ,
all fires flames will be moving and licking exactly the same , I don't know if it would look OK .
We've had previously used animated fire for ground objects quite a while ago but all flames
moving the same was not exactly what we were looking for but it still can be also used if
requested.  :)
It thou needs to process a lot more textures just for one fire to create animated effect .

HolyGrail,

Personally i prefer your fire effects option as shown in the video.

Quote

Perhaps attach a similar effect to incendiary loads so that they just burn like that when they hit the ground?

If you do this, then it will not really matter where you drop bombs, as you will get a fire effect. Wether it is in a city or countryside, to me this negates the purpose of accurate bombing.
Also a few problems that may occur are, all fires will be in straight lines corresponding to the 'stick' of bombs dropped which will not look very realistic, also if you say have 100 bombers then all thier bombloads will result in fires. Would this not be worse than having fires only on destroyed buildings?

At the moment or as in the video the majority of bombloads would either miss or bomb an already bombed out building therefore the only fire effect would be buildings destroyed all other bombloads would not count towards the fire effect.

For me HolyGrails improved building fire holds the best solution. Even if the map was not populated, a few buildings could be added in FMB to give a target. Remember that only German towns and Cities would need to be populated in this instance as Bomber Command would not have targeted occupied countries generally (except leading up to D-Day) or maybe also British towns if you wanted to simulate Luftwaffe raids aswell.

Maybe the best solution would be Holygrails new effects with a new very low poly generic building type suitable for night missions.

just a few thoughts

If that new upcoming nightfighters map have placed buildings on here and there basis and we using fire glow effect it would be all running like a charm while giving a pretty good visual immersion where the bomb will hit the building or exploding close enough for house to be destoyed and fire glow effect showing up .
Fire glow will start slowly from less visible to more visible over period of time like it can be seen in that video like the fire rage is increasing with houses burning .
Also we can kill that effect after specific time like 15 minutes or so by editing .eff file entries to save resources .
In youtube video I was using Canon's older Channel map and there are some pretty dense spots with one house next to another , never had problem with it .
Currently there is a bit delayed work continuing on finishing motor effects which will be a must have for especially nightfighters to give to these used aircrafts the best visual effect immersion .
It's now all about how much additional time it will take to get it done so the new version can be released and then converted to 4.101  :)

I hope it will not be " two weeks ! be shure " phrase  ;D

HolyGrail,

Thanks for reply, I really like the way your fire effect develops with time, looks much more immersive than a building just bursting into flames. Personally i would rather the fire stays for a long time. Is it possible that different buildings have different lengths of fire effect? Or do they all have the same time associated with them?

one setting for all buildings but fire glow effect can stay for infinite time , if there will be any

HolyGrail,

Thanks mate for the quick reply, one last question honest  :)

Is it possible to make the new fire effect larger. So that if a few buildings are hit in close proximity they gradually grow into one big fire, rather than a series of small fires?

I think what is missing from fires at night is some sort of dynamic lighting effect, similar to what happens when a bomb explosion takes place at night and you get that initial glow of the explosion. The fires just do not appear to give off any light if you now what i mean.

I should imagine that would be quite a frame rate killer though, if possible at all ?

That is the same discussion I'd like to have for flakbursts too, explosions with dynamic lighting.
I recall that it was brought up once, somewhere on these boards, but lost track of it, sadly.

Still hoping to see some modder take it up some day :)

Hello all and nice too see you,

Im new to you community forum and i want to say how amazed i am by the work that some people have done. As a former moder i know how much time consuming is and painful to get a mod done and work but at the end you know always you get rewarded by others for your work. You actually brought the game to a other way of gaming and feeling. My grats then and gratitude for your work.

Now lets get to the point, im having some issues with Plutonium Mod, dont know if it is the right spot tot mention it, so i thought ill post here.

I have made a clean install of the game and patched to 409m. Grail is saying that this mod was tested on UP 2.01 also. So i went to their page i read a lot of stuff about it, i liked it and i d/w it . UPs page saying that the this ModPack is to be work with 4.09m patch. So i apply the ModPack, i created the MODS folder and put inside the Plutonium mod. Now when i start game it loads to 100% and close to desktop without errors. After reading at UPs page i saw that UP DOESN'T need the MODS folder to work. You must deactivate the folder. So i did, -MODS on folder and rerun the game which it loads normally.

So my question is this, how is gonna work the MOD if the folder is deactivated ?!! Im getting something wrong ? or i didn't got it well from the begging ?

I also tried the other solution, i deleted the game folder, i put back the clean install from backup, i patched to 4.101m, i copied back the ModAct patch 4.101m and i put the MOD back into the folder. Again crash, so i read here that the MOD needs the Bomb_Bay Plus to work, which is intergrade into UPs install. I made a search on google but nowhere can find the mod to d/w it and add it into MODS folder.

So here i am again in the begging stuck and dont know what to do.
Please help !!

After 2 days of testing the problem solved. Pretty weird for the actually problem. I found at the end that my media (the IL2 DVD Disc) had the problem.  :( I made the whole procedure with a second game disc everything run smoother. I didn't expect that something was corrupted after installation and affected the MODS so much. Now with my friends disc clean install all in position and run fine.  :D  :D

But basically im sad that no one care to ask something  :(, just of curiosity mon. Anyway thats all. :-X

We care a lot here at SAS , I was just out of order due to real-life work commitments .
I have to say thou that would have been a tough one for me to make any suggestion
to help you as to why you've been experiencing game closing to desktop while
running UP 2.01 with Plutonium mod .
It's wonderful to see a happy ending and that you've found a fix .
I would never guess anything about DVD disk problem  :D

Hi there.... I am like others who are eagerly awaiting your full mod to work with the 4.101.
In the meantime I contacted CY6 when i saw what he was able to do with his triggers. His Command and control mod can enable the spotter to set-off smoke. I asked him if he could produce a trigger action for large smoke or fires to be started by a trigger action such as the destruction by bombs of a certain object, and then burn or smoke for the remainder of the mission. This because even your great effects the smoke dies down more quickly than IRL so it would be nice for the mission builder to be able to have certain things in a mission which would give loads of smoke but not from mission start but after being triggered.
Unfortunately now CY6 has retired. Are you able to do anything like this?

Hello fabianfred  8)
how's it going' ? haven't talking to you in a while  :)
Excellent ideas but currently lack of time to do it all , it's also too often done by trial and error and
it needs a lot of imagination from Java class files editing guys as to how to make it actually work
in-game and also without possibility of causing some other issues as result of such new edit and new
effects implemented code .
Aircrafts motor effects finishing is the #1 priority and I am depending on Sani's class files editing
otherwise the whole masterpiece that Sani started working on a while ago can't be released .
It's not far from finishing but it still need some tender loving care to get it done to the point of release
and we're still talking 4.09 version and then editing new motor effects to 4.101  :D
I don't do mods all by myself , it's a team work and all those guys like Wolfighter , Potenz or lately
Sani with the new motor effects contributed to what we have today including Aed from Aviaskins forum .
I am not Java class files guy and unless someone else ( Java work ) will try and work on such effects
this is what we have and what is available right now .

Motor effects that Sani coded in to class files are a thousand light years ahead of the upcoming CoD
new release with a lot of fantastic looking visual details  8)
I realy hope everyone can enjoy soon these new stunning looking effects .
Hold on.....

Hey Grail, thanks for the response  ;D

I want to say also sorry from my side, you know sometimes people gets inpatient  ;), but i was sad about my '46 Disc. I checked it also to my friends pc, the one who gave  me his disc, and we run some tests there and we had the same problems. So it was double checked that the disc was defective. But now that is history cause i send it for replacement and waiting my new disc. Anyway thank you again and Lots of grats to you and the people for their effort about the freaking awesome mods  :P ;D

I couldn't get used to playing 4.101 with stock effects so i just deleted the class files in the plutonium folder and then put it in the mods folder....expecting it to not load or crash. But it worked! With a surprising number of effects intact too. I now have plutonium smoke, explosions, shock waves, hit effects, flak... not sure if the fire works too but it think it does. gee that was easy.  :P has everyone been doing this all along doing this?

About your development of the new effects for 4.101 can I ask you to take a look at this portion of the HSFX fix tread by the reply exchange from western0221 and me about the IJN CV stack smokes?

http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,14774.msg161957.html#msg161957

I find his observation very useful to develope a dedicated and historical smoke effect!!!!

But if you delete these then you will also lose alot of the effects included in the pack, but atleast some will work.

Delete those that looks like "10BDHRKJAUBLABLA20NFJHF". There are less of them in the Uranium edition, so I'm using it for that reason. Less effects loss.

Just y'all remember that HG,P&W won't give any support to any trouble caused by the 4.09 version used in 4.10 with the classfiles ripped out.

You would'nt go driving in a car with the electronics yanked out, would you?

Let's keep it cool !  8)

Removing of class files will result in effects bug like this one : (http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac90/HolyGrail_photos/d062.gif)





Yes , Eexhaton is just pointing out that the recent trend in removing of effects class files is
worrisome as they're necessary since the whole effects madness is build around those new
effects and without them some of the original effects will look completely different or not
exactly as they were configured via .eff files based on class files new entries which will be missing .
Let's hold on as the the new UP 3.0 will handle new effects and classes  :)

That depends .... did I rip em out cause they were an immobilizer in a Ferrari that I wanted to steal and joy ride all over town eventually dumping it smoking and abused but undamaged on the other side of town? heheh just kidding :P
I do miss Eexhations 3d 20mm effect the most funnily enough. But I can't live without plutonium effects in Il2. And most of them work fine like this till ultrapack 3
Sorry if that is annoying to anyone. I really do appreciate these mods and all the work it must have taken to make them.

Which version do you have? (4.09, 4.10?)
For simple 4.09, you need BombBayDoors mod, for 4.10, you have to delete the two classfiles called "72DCDDF4D2AD25E8", "B27261D242F3990A". ^^

So, by removing them, the mod may become compatible, but some of the effects may not be showed as they were supposed to be

B27261D242F3990A is crucial to:
different damage smokes configuration with additional smokes and interaction between each other for all planes including separated jet engine full power smoke from sharing the same effect with planes damage smokes , bomb bay door mod entries included .

72DCDDF4D2AD25E8 is crucial to:
fluid fires & smokes , additional extra fires and smokes for ground objects , sparks , shock waves , custom napalm , locomotive and vagon's damage fluid fires and smokes ....etc

@ StrykVladzimsky
It likely would be possible but it would take someone like Sani to get it done .
I am afraid current effects are already beyond what this game engine can handle
with effects crying out loud between each other ( particles sudden disappearing ) ;D.

@ RooMan296  :D ;D

@ slipper ,
HaDes will include various effects in to new UP once the class files code compatibility rewriting is done .
ZUTI is working on it but it takes additional time to make it all work with MDS feature since effects are
previous older 4.09 version .
We're now more like spectators waiting for the final fruits of ZUTI's MDS+effects merging coding madness  :D.
We will not continue on effects new editing since ZUTI's MDS is quite complex piece of hard work and
we don't want to make things even more complicated .

Hi guys, I'm running HSFX 5.01 and when I try the Plutonium Universal Max effects everything works well except for when you drop bombs. When the bomb impact the ground the game freeze. The problem is with the file 72DCDDF4D2AD25E8 which is exactly the file I need because it makes the fires on the bldgs and vehicles last long. If I fire rockets it works and works for everything also. It is just that file. Any workaround this issue? I like the fire that keep burning.

Title: Re: UPDATE 3: IL-2 1946 Plutonium Universal Max Effects V1 Mod
Post by: TICI on May 27, 2011, 04:16:44 PM
If you remove the classifies you will lose effects. I found out experimenting that you need to remove for sure the file B27261D242F3990A otherwise the game freeze at loading of missions. Than I found out that if you are in a mission where you or someone else drop any type of bomb you need to remove also the file 72DCDDF4D2AD25E8 otherwise the game freeze when the bombs reach the ground but if you remove this file the flame doens't burn for long time like it should be. If you are in a mission where there is no drop of bombs you don't need to remove this second file and keep the flames all the time. To experiment try quick mission with a bomber and see for yourself with and without these files. We just need to work around the second file so that we can keep the fire  burning.
I run HSFX 5.01. Anyone with a solution?

Post by: TICI on May 28, 2011, 05:44:20 AM
I agree  that in the air to air combat it may works but the HSFX 5.01 has many effects that are as good as well . For me  the big difference in the Plutonium mod was the ground and fire effects which are lost with these files removed. So let just hope that soon we will have this beautiful mod repacked for 4.10 or for people with HSFX 5.01 if someone knows how to make the fires in bldgs and vehicles keep burning changing some parameters it would be appreciated . Now the fire stay only for 1-2 seconds.

I had the three mods from when I had the up2.01 and I place them inside 3.0 #up# folder. When I had them in 2.01 I remember I had to check for some conflict between plutonium and LGD mod, and disable some classfiles inside the plutonium. But for some reason now they work together flawlessly. I have actually upload this mods to a mediafire link so my mates in my squad can download and test them. Here they are:

http://www.mediafire.com/?tlklmrerxky9gk4

The folder called SMOKES is a fix for the objects rescap and sar from the developer to make this objects work correctly in UP3.0. If you want you can delete it.

HolyGrail,

Would like to ask for you to consider a few things for your next update if possible.

I am a fan of nightfighting in I-l2, and anything that can make it more immersive, with this in mind i was wondering if you would please include your fluid fires effect, we talked about earlier.

Quote
Hi slipper  :)

I know what you mean , yes , a lot of houses on fire can be demanding on the system and there is one easy trick which can be used yet still looking great and simulating house fires .
Fluid fire as it is right now in Plutonium mod is looking great but any further reduction in fluid flames appearance will start looking pretty bad and the only way to reduce system demand on this kind of fire is to completely replacing current house fluid fire for previous Uranium mod design which used fire glow .
Fire glow is perfectly acceptable visually and it looks excellent from especially higher altitude as there are videos on YouTube of that Uranium fire glow effect of cities burning plus it don't need much resources at all in order to appear in bigger masses without FPS hit  8)
Basically we can keep all other fluid fires as they are currently in Plutonium mod for cars , trucks , tanks , bushes etc..... while replacing only house fire with fire glow .
A win win situation for any FPS concern regarding any bigger massive cities destruction while having house fire glow effect simulating burning cities  :)
I was thinking about it quite a while ago but we were not sure if that would go well with IL-2 community .
Please , let me know your thoughts about this :

Here is the video how the cities will look using back Uranium fire glow effect for houses only :
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l0hARDi_Mo0

PS: Me and Sani are trying to finish this 4.09 version with aircrafts new motor effects and then it can be converted to 4.101 as soon as possible  :)
UP will have also new effects .

S! HG

Also the target indicators (TI's) carried by some British Bombers at the moment are big fps killers, could these be 'lightened' in anyway please? so that it is possible to drop a few loads without the game coming to a standstill, and also maybe be given a timer so that they extinguish after 5 mins or so?

Next up is the searchlights, which do not seem to be as bright (in DBW) as they were, could these be given a more intense shine, and made to operate over a greater distance?

Lastly, the RAF used bombs called 'spot fires' for marking targets, aswell as what we have at the moment i was wondering wether another few fire objects could be made, (FireType2, is perfect for this), with different colours, red, green, pink etc.

Also overall could the visibility distance for effects be increased at all?

just a few thoughts for things i would like to see mate, if any are possible that would be great.

regards

slipper

Hi slipper  8)

thank you again for your thoughts , all good ideas , there are a lot of talented guys
who can try and implement another new effects but it won't be me or Potenz , Wolfighter
have also his own work projects to be finished and Sani is busy like we all are with everyday life  :)
Maybe Aed will add some yet another new class files entries but it's more unlikely .
We have right now already effects in IL2 that are beyond the game engine capabilities and another
new effects will make things only worse.
If guys want to push it even more then maybe Aed or socorrista22198 or santobr or fly! or Eexhaton
or many other guys who like to work on effects can give it another look  8)
(distance visibility for Plutonium effects was given bigger value in only .mat files settings
and it should be far enough and more what the game engine can handle ) .
I can't tell you right now how the final effects will be for UP 3.0 or if they will be mixed with other
effects .
This will be depending on HaDes and ZUTI what's in and what's out since the necessary effects
with MDS compatibility work is being done ..
Lets wait for the final release to see how effects were sorted out , which are used and possibly mixed  :)

S! HG

I would also like to see smoke trails to be longer in next version of Plutonium:) Kind of like what Rus Ps fella shown here http://ultrapack.tuttovola.org/index.php/topic,4484.0.html

And finally, the wing vapor trails (during tight turns) are pretty bad in all effects packs, including plutonium. Olegs' original ones are closest to reality by far.

@ StrykVladzimsky
It likely would be possible but it would take someone like Sani to get it done .
I am afraid current effects are already beyond what this game engine can handle
with effects crying out loud between each other ( particles sudden disappearing ) ;D.

@ RooMan296  :D ;D

@ slipper ,
HaDes will include various effects in to new UP once the class files code compatibility rewriting is done .
ZUTI is working on it but it takes additional time to make it all work with MDS feature since effects are
previous older 4.09 version .
We're now more like spectators waiting for the final fruits of ZUTI's MDS+effects merging coding madness  :D.
We will not continue on effects new editing since ZUTI's MDS is quite complex piece of hard work and
we don't want to make things even more complicated .

THX,
S! HG  8)

Wait, you mean it will be merged with MDS and there won't be any standalone version? That doesn't sound good for Dark Blue World users, as it has MDS disabled.

I don't mean to sound rude at all but did you miss the part about removing certain classfiles to make it work in 4.10.1? :D

There are also a few compilations that use Plutonium effects as a base if you don't want to remove the classfiles yourself. Ive got one posted here, and there is a guy over at UP that has what looks to be a very similar pack.

Yeah i read that but i thought it was for UP3 and not DBW. I wouldn't have the slightest idea how to make it work for DBW. I will read it again and try and decipher it. Thanks for fast reply.

In this this one instance it seems they are the same.
Remember that dbw is an expansion of UP3, what works for one should work for the other IN THIS CASE.
At least it works for me. I haven't had any issues with my compilation in dbw, and its based on plutonium.

I have a question regarding the Plutoniun Universal Max Effects listed above.

I have Il-2, UP3 and DBW installed to their latest versions. Although I read the thread, I am still uncertain where the Plutonium effects go and, once installed, how to implement them. I don't have a MODS folder, just the DBW folder and the jsgmemods folder (where it doesn't seem to go).

Can anyone shed some light on this? Also, do the effects improve (extend, intensify) ground explosions and damage?

Thanks so much.

Add the plutonium folder to the DBW folder . Don't forget to remove the 2 class files mentioned above  ;D . You do loose a bit of the ground effects but the air effects seem to work ok .

Unfortunately with out the 2 class files most of the bangs and bling is gone . It was only designed for 4.09 . There's other effects that will work but the building and ground fires are another headache due to difference in coding wirh 4.09 and 4.101

I've been tinkering a bit with the mod to make it compatible with 4.10. For the moment, I've only adapted the persistent fires feature. I you want to test it, here are the links:
Persistent fires for IL2 4.10 stock, HSFX 5 and DBW
Persistent fires for UP3.0
Intructions:
- Download and install Plutonium Universal Max Effects V1 from the first page
- In your "0_0_Plutonium_Universal_Max_Effects_V1" folder, delete all class hashfiles (00B509F2DD168B52, 1B5CF71AF243DC02,...). Only the 2 folders "3DO" and "Effects" must remain.
- Install my mod
This way you will have most of the new effects of Plutonium with working persistent fires on your 4.10 install.
All credits go to HG&P for this wonderful mod.

Persistent fires for IL2 4.10 stock and DBW
Sanka, in this Mod there only is the file 72DCDDF4D2AD25E8.

This file also comes with DBW (have it in my v1.6) in XTD folder.
(ATM I don't know with wich version it was added).

Have you looked for compatibily issues  ?
What overwrites what?

As I'm no Java programmer, I saw at first glance this difference:
DBWs explosions.jar comes with using 'tuple3d' (?, whatever this is  :D),
yours not. Any other differences?

 :)

Actually Gerax, the classfile 72DCDDF4D2AD25E8 is DBW'S Explosions.class that I've modified to include some features of Plutonium (the "tuple3d" seems to have been discarded by my decompiler, I have no idea of its use though). Since the class does integrate the code of DBW there shouldn't be any compatibility issues. But I'd appreciate feedback if you run into any issues. :)

I also tested the Uranium effect mod with HSFX 5.01 and it works very well. The only change you need to do is the remove the B2726ID242F399OA file , than you add the 72DC.......... file form this update which will give the permanent fire like in the Plutonium. The only issue is the train fire as previousely posted.

Guys, After hours of testing removing 1 file at the time I've been able to fix the Plutonium Max Effect working wonderfully with HSFX 5.01. The culpricts are 3 files two of which are already known. Here are the instructions:

From the original Plutonium max effects remove only the following 3 files:
B27261D242F3990A
668BD1109D5B7064
72DCDDF4D2AD25E8
Than install the new 72DCDD....... file from this sight .
I tested bombing,strafing vehicles, rockets, destroy trains and bldgs. no freezing , no loss of effects and the flames are always on !!.
Let me know.

But this is a big step for the back of the best effects from all time for IL-2. 8)

I don't know about DBW because I run two versions of HSFX . One is 4.11 and one is 5.01. Plutonium max effect mod works very well with HSFX 4.11 beacuse is based on patch 4.09 but when you install it on HSFX 5.01 it freeze and crash the game because is based on patch 4.10. On HSFX 5.01 if you remove the 72DCD.... and B2726.... files it works but you lose mainly the effect of flames staying during the game. In my tests for the 3 files removed:
B2726....... was macking the game freeze when bomb impact te ground
72DCD...... was crashing the game at loading
668B.........was crashing the game when rockets impact trains
In removing these 3 files and replacing the 72DCD......with the new one enclosed in this post the game tested on HSFX 5.01 works like on 4.11 without losing any effect. Keep in mind that HSFX 5.01 alrady have many effects from Plutonium or similar so it just works nicely togheter .
So far I tested in all the conditions and the result are amazing.

This video dates back from July 2009. It was actually an older version than Plutonium (Uranium I think) with fire glow instead of fluid fires.
I can include the Uranium fire glow for buildings (more FPS friendly), but only after I've completed the adaptation of the original classfiles, which is already taking some time  :-X

Ok here is a new version of the Plutonium classfiles for IL2 4.10.
I have now completely adapted the explosions classfiles so you will have most ground effects back (persistent fires, new explosions, new smokes, new cannon effects,...)  8)

IL-2 1946 Plutonium Universal Max Effects for IL2 4.10 stock, HSFX 5 and DBW
The mod is NOT compatible with UP3

This is still a WIP, I am in the process of converting the remaining classfiles.

- Download and install Plutonium Universal Max Effects V1 from the first page

Thanks a lot mate, really is a great addition.

This video dates back from July 2009. It was actually an older version than Plutonium (Uranium I think) with fire glow instead of fluid fires.
I can include the Uranium fire glow for buildings (more FPS friendly), but only after I've completed the adaptation of the original classfiles, which is already taking some time

Would be great if you could look at this when you have the time please mate, even if just as an option for when attacking towns when fps becomes an issue.

This is one effect that AFAIK it was discarded cause unsolvable java incompatibility problems >:(

Take a look at the underbelly fireburst

hguderian, not sure if you are mistaking what i wrote regards 'fluid' fires mate?
In the link i provided the fluid fires relate to building fires which are more fps friendly, and spread with time. Not sure if you are refering to 'fluid' as in flammable liquids? My fault for not being clearer  :)

It's intended to be only a little remind for another, and unluckily loose, effect from HG&P's factory :=)))

I always hope there is the chance to see it in IL2...once java conflicts could be solved!

I tested the effects with the additional files and works pretty good, but I have a question. I was bombing a bridge (Cement ) with a P51 . With perfect hit the bridge after the bomb hit was still intact. Has anything to do with this update like the train before ?.
Thanks and keep the good work.

Hi TICI,
I doubt it has something to do with my classfiles since they don't modify anything concerning the bridges. I think that bridges have been reinforced with the 4.10 patch. Can you retry this without my files and see if anything changes?
Title: Re: UPDATE 3: IL-2 1946 Plutonium Universal Max Effects V1 Mod
Post by: TICI on November 22, 2011, 06:55:12 AM
I will re-test a bombing to a cement bridge with a P-51 with 2x500KG bombs and I will let you know. I also noticed that on another mission my wingmen hit a train bridge ( I don't know the material ) and it did collapsed in the middle and had fire for while. So I assume it works but not sure if because of different material. Furthermore if you strafe barges in a canal there is an explosion but soon after ( Immediately after  ) the barge desepears .
Finally I noticed that in your classfiles is missing the file B2726....... which you stated will give all the smoke to the effects. I did install your B2726....  file with your other files and it works ok.
I will let you know about Cement Bridge.

No, the file B27261D242F3990A does not give you smoke to the effects. It's actually the AircraftState.class and it is related to the effects of your aircraft. This file I am still working on. So it's normal that you won't find it in my classfiles for the moment :)
I didn't upload any B27261D242F3990A file yet. The one that was uploaded before in this thread actually comes from HSFX 5. However you shouldn't use it if you have a DBW install or else the bomb bay doors of your bombers won't work...

OK, I tested the bombing of cement bridge WITHOUT the mod and 2X500KG bombs with a P51 doesn't destroy the bridge !! So it is not the mod . As far as other classfiles you are working on I will be looking forward for them. By the way I've HSFX 5.01 installed and that's what I'm always referring to.
Thanks again.

Sanka, I tried your modified mod with DBW. Using the track "The Black Death", as soon as the bombs from the IL-2 impact, the game crashes.

EDIT: tried it with the track JaBo262.. same thing.
No it doesn't crash on a clean DBW install. I just tested the track myself. There must be a conflict in your mods somewhere. Did you first delete all the original Plutonium classfiles before installing my files? If not, you will have crashes.

Hi

I working on version for my server UP3,and after all day testing many classes ect.I thing problem with train, is a bug. With sanka class file is nothing wrong  ( UP version ). for experiment i remove all mods from my game, and i tested trains .By accident i create situation when train crash with another train, and  game didn't crash, but i have lots errors from console ( wrong exception <java... > bla bla bla )so after that, i create many situation like that, and sometimes this not happen all works fine. This is very weird

I did all that, thanks. DBW 1.6build, 4.101m, etc., still same thing. What does file 72DCDDF4D2AD25E8 do? Persistant fires only? Or something else? That seems to be the only troublesome one. I remove it, problem goes away.
Ratsel, just to be sure, do you have the 3DO and Effects folder from the original Plutonium inside your 0_0_Plutonium_Universal_Max_Effects_V1 folder? You need these files for the mod to work.
And 72DCDDF4D2AD25E8 isn't just persistent fires, it actually manages most of the original ground effects of Plutonium (explosions, fires, smokes, etc.)

It's working perfectly in my DBW.
There is nothing wrong with sanka's files.
Of course there is something wrong with the DBW of the people who are having troubles.
Maybe some guys forgot to delete the class files from plutonium mod or they are using another effects mod that has class files too.

The class files from sanka are not adapted to UP3 because of MDS, so troubles are expected.

Yes, I tested with train cars and with almost all recorded videos.

Take a look at "spb2" video, in this video four ammo train cars are attacked and destroyed.
They are emulating ammo depots in the head of the bridge.

Sanka, I appreciate your hard work very much, but did everything as posted and still no go. Its only the bombs that the problem. Rocket attacks & trains no problem. I have UP3 RC4 w/ DBW 1.6, SAS etc., pehaps I'll wait for your UP-3 files. Just no bombs for now :)
Np mate, I suspect some UP3 files are interfering in some way with you DBW install... That's the only explanation I can find since I know that using my classfiles with UP3 will make the game crash when you drop bombs... Maybe you should try one last thing: check that your files.sfs in IL2's root folder is the stock 4.10 one and not from UP3... Other than that I have no idea sorry!

Sorry if I've missed something gentlemen. I take it that this isn't intended for Modact 3.06?

A clean install wouldn't hurt, but maybe before doing this try adjusting your memory settings in the IL2 launcher. Your crashes might just be due to a memory problem...

IL-2 1946 Plutonium Universal Max Effects for UP 3.0
Here are the classfiles for explosions.class adapted for use with UP3. They contain all ground effects of Plutonium and should work without problems with MDS. Please report any issues you might find.
Complete versions with all the original classfiles adapted for UP3, DBW and HSFX5 are in the works ;)

Intructions:
- Download and install Plutonium Universal Max Effects V1 from the first page in the #UP# folder
- In your "0_0_Plutonium_Universal_Max_Effects_V1" folder, delete all class hashfiles (00B509F2DD168B52, 1B5CF71AF243DC02,...). Only the 2 folders "3DO" and "Effects" must remain. Please note that if you don't do this you might still have some crashes with train explosions etc...

Edit: Just ran a classcheck, and came up with these conflicts.

Yes some of the classfiles are also used by the JetWar pack, but aren't essential to it. You should remove the "000_" at the start of the Jetwar Essentials folder so that the Plutonium mod gets loaded first. This way you will have the effects ;)

awesome! thanks! for problems, the P-51s & Spits lost there flame exhaust :( , the 109G that I fly still has its startup flames :) tested every map in QMB so far everything works! memory set to 1024kb mod cache enabled, activated with jsgmmods. You are the BOMB ( haha ;) )

Glad you sorted it out :) P-51s and Spits will get back their flames when the adaptation of the other Plutonium classfiles is complete. For the moment you can install these classfiles from the original Plutonium:

Code: [Select]
00B509F2DD168B52
1B641B5E5224F862

B34774201A0E7D0C
C6EF065E28F3732E
E59248A20A60686C

This will give you the flames back but might cause some incompatibilities since they originally come from the 4.09 version of the game.

sanka,

Holygrail kindly merged a copy of his effects and Aed's effects for me a few years ago (under 4.09m) to give the airplane fires a bit more smoke than standard plutonium effects.

If i were to send you a copy do you think you may be able to see if it could be included in a future update please? even as just an option?

Also do you think it may be possible to reinstate the intermittent fire effects at all?

Thanks mate, you are doing some really great work with adapting these effects.

I don't know what you guys are talking about, the original Plutonium did not have any Hollywood effects, it have guncam effects and it's working exactly like it was.
If you want more smokes and fires, you need to add some other effects made to work with plutonium, just like the awesome socorrista's Cinema Special FX.
You need to put the files in this order:
1- Socorrista's Cinema Special FX or another compatible effects files.
2- Plutonium original 3DO and effects folder with sanka's class files.

As santobr said, I think you are confusing the Plutonium mod with other effects mods... The goal of my work is to restore the original Plutonium effects for IL2 4.10. If you have other compatible effects mods, please load them before Plutonium...

Once I am finished converting the Plutonium files, I can take a look at Aed's mod to see if I can merge it... But no promises though :) Concerning the intermittent fire effects I think it will require a bit more Java coding, but after my classfiles are complete, why not?

Big bomb explosion are missing or only i have this problem ? ( for UP )

Which big bomb explosions do you mean? I just tested Fat Man in UP3 and there's absolutely no problem:

(http://www.sas1946.com/images/imageshit/dead/dead.gif)

Thank you for the heads up BravoFxTrt  8)
In the meanwhile a new effects team is working on a hopefully even better visual effects for IL-2 4.12.2m version  :)
Will explore a lot more creativity since computers can now process much more than back in 2010 .
No more holding back .
