"Attention !"                            "Attention!"                              "Attention!"

BULLETS RICOCHET , BARREL GUNSMOKE WITH SHELLS INCLUDED ,
0.50 CALIBER GUN BULLETS SMOKETRAIL MOD WITH 4 OPTIONS
which was done many months ago and not possible to release  ;D

( at the bottom of this post is also download link for 4.101 game install version of
bullets ricochet with edited necessary class file by ton414 .
After downloading Ricochet , Gunsmoke , 0.50 Cal Gun Bullets Smoketrail mod just
replace class file inside mod with this new 4.101 class file from ton414 )

Small example video ,
needs to be watched in full screen mode in HD due to harder to see details .

Please , select watch on youtube in full screen and HD
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L2PwldKHW60#ws-normal (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L2PwldKHW60#ws-normal)

Main downloaded folder " 0.50 Caliber Gun Effects " contain inside 4 versions of mods to choose from.
Whichever one you will pick ,  just drop that version in to your game main mods folder , that's all.
Bullets ricochet is for all guns , barrel gunsmoke together with shells is for all aircrafts ,
0.50 caliber bullets smoketrail effect is ONLY for 0.50 caliber guns .


0.50 CALIBER GUN MOD WITH CHOICE FROM :

1. Bullets ricochet only mod 
or
2. Bullets ricochet with barrel gunsmoke and shells mod
or
3. Bullets ricochet with barrel gunsmoke , shells and 2D bullets intermittent smoketrail mod
or
4. Bullets ricochet with barrel gunsmoke , shells and 3D bullets smoketrail mod
( 3D only for movie effects , slow motion and no cockpit guncamera clips )


Please !! if you happen to be using some of the available tracer mods , there is no
conflict with this 0.50 caliber effect mod but if you're using some tracer mod ,
size and color of your tracer will be applied by your tracer mod as our 0.50 mod is
not changing tracers , it takes and is using original game tracers size and color .
If you happen to pick a choice of 0.50 mod with gunsmoke and shells effect
included version , please , remove any previous gunsmoke shells mod that you
might have installed as they will conflict together


Credit for borrowing class files and thank you goes to:
1. SAS forum administrators for making this possible to post  :-*
2. ED = class file
3. 3rdeye = class file
4. Special thanks goes to Mysticpuma for excellent 0.50 caliber gun mods
consultation & fighter planes 0.50 caliber gun history expertise  :)
5. Digitally remastered and remodeled by HolyGrail & Potenz effects co.  ;D
6. Potenz is really a cool dude !! thanks buddy  ;D

Pick your choice & HAPPY GROUND POUNDING !!
Bullets ricochet effect was widely effectively used for strafing ground targets especially
locomotive trains and barges , ships but anything goes .


PS: there is NO guns strength change conspiracy going on , enjoy .

Each of these 4 mods versions whichever you pick is fully compatible with
" HG&P Uranium Edition effects " mod .
Ricochet is random , smaller gun bullets do ricochet more than large gun bullets ,
it works with ground surface and water surface
All bullets should have some degree of random ricochet .

UP 2.0 and HSFX 4.1 note:
HG&P 0.50 caliber ricochet mod have separated Java class file effect entry from all other
ingame bullets smoketrail caliber guns effects , it was exclusively given new .EFF file
called " Fifties_BuletteTrail.EFF " only for 0.50 caliber bullets smoketrail .
Somewhere during new planes creation , there must have been some changes inside
class files entries for some of those new planes causing them to not work with HG&P 0.50
new .eff file class entry and ignoring bullets smoketrail effect for some of those new planes .
While there is no conflict , it's just that 0.50 bullets smoketrail will not work with all planes
that have 0.50 caliber guns . 
UP 2.0 install with using 0.50 caliber mod ( bullets smoketrail effect) ,  is not working with

Mustang:
P-51-20NT
P-51-25NA
P-51-30NA
F-51-30NA

B-25's not working with bullets smoketrail are:
B-25D-5NC
B-25J-15NA
B-25D-20NC
B-25J-22NA

P-38's only original game stock versions J , L , Late have working 0.50 caliber bullets smoketrail

Here can be found help with adding bullets smoketrail to new B-25's versions :

Axtualy thes=re was one stage we decided some words were off limits. I dont remeber the exact list, but I recall making sure that "poon" was not one of them.

O yes! "Bottom" is a no no. Also, sicne most of us are pilots, "fire" is not a popular word. We prefer "shoot"

So, for example, you whould say

"gosh darn it, I wanted to give an apple to miss abby, but shoot!...that fucking poon schatten gave her a blow job instead"

Ha!

Yeah we established real quicklike that poon was not only not banned, but I think it was the word of the day last week... :D :D

Oh and as for the mod, excellent stuff, the only problem I've had with it is my ricochets aren't bouncing. But I think I know how to fix that, so it's all good, even if the Magic 8 Ball lied, LIED!!!!  :o

Yeah from a Red Army manual circa 1936 I believe, I saw it somewhere and it made me laugh so I decided to keep it as a quote for a while. Now I'm just too lazy to change it. :D

Got emergency shopping quick replacement with new 250GTS 1GB memory .

those .dll's I have had before .
Nothing else .

Hi HG&P,
do you may restore the original "in-ground hits effect"?. This mod is amazin' (as every HG&P's production), but it to change the ground dust effect of 0.50s. I think this is related to this file B4A9DC1605135A48.
Thanks a lot...Regards

Hi hguderian  :)

what would you like to have back ?
just default bullet ground hit dust effect ? I believe not one of this 4 versions mod have
any ground dust effects files included  :D
Edited ground dust effect was included in Uranium effects mod .
Let me know your thoughts , we can always work out some solution  :)
We have some other work to do so it might take some extra additional time looking in to it .
Thank you for your nice comment  :)

PS: which 0.50 caliber mod version are you using ?

Well, it takes the game into next level.

By the way, can I remove the Ricochet effect? I have a weird feeling about using it online. Are people without the mod able to see the effect? or it won't effect online?

Thank you, I really appreciate your work, since I'm a .50 freak. ;)

I wish I could be of some help but I am off-liner , Potenz might be able to tell you but I just
don't know if others are able to see bullets ricochet effect on-line .
If you like to try it without bullets ricochet then open mod and try to disable with
minus if front of it class file 8D6CE2FE0EE939B2 or just remove it to another safe location before testing .

Yes, as a matter of fact:

We appreciate the mods you have made so much Holy Grail&Potenz&Wolfighter that, without a 4.10 version, we are simply feeling a little "empty" inside, as if memorizing a childhood memory when everything was simple and easy, dreaming that it could be like that again.

The mods you make is so fundamental to the quality of this sim that it makes the IL-2 world a whole different game :) Personally, I very much miss the Landing Gear Failure mod, and the ricochet one is a MUST :D The Plutonium effects mod... well, I have had EVERY version of your effects mod since you started waaay back :)

I would just like to say thank you for your efforts, and taking the time (your spare time) in your otherwise busy days, to keep expanding the universe of IL-2, bringing us all this new content, for free!

A big Salute! to you guys! :)

Thank you so much guys , Strike , redko and many others .....  8)
It's very nice of you .
Working on effects is a cake walk comparing to 3D aircraft modeling , Java class files work ,
working with mesh files , maps creating , repaints work , creating SAS Modact and UP versions
and a lot of other stuff where these members , SAS staff , UP staff guys , ZUTI's excellent MDS
and all other modders are generously contributing day after day a lot more than HolyGrail & Potenz & Wolfighter effects co. ever will be .
We really do not deserve such praise , many guys have contributed to these effects mods
in the past 2+ years and we're very , very thankful for everything they have done to help us  8)
With these days busy life we're no longer what we used to be , every day life is taking its tool
leaving less and less free time in these tough economic times .
Those hay days of HolyGrail & Potenz & Wolfighter effects co. are over  :-\
We're continuing to be around , there is work going on on last Plutonium effects mod version as the
latest contribution on motor effects by Sani is absolutely incredible  8) but some of the other effects
mods which have included class files will have to be picked up by someone else for editing in order to
make them compatible with other versions of IL-2 as they were created only for 4.09  :)
Strike  8) , I have also kept all versions of effects mods ever made since the modding madness started  :D ;D
" Be shure "  :D  it makes us happy when you and others like what they see in-game when flying combat
missions and campaigns where these effects can be unleashed for better increasing immersion .
Not everything was always 100% , we wish some of the effects are entirely different but considering
the game engine particles limits and rendering , it is what it is .

We very appreciate all your kind words and what a ride it was during those past years in effects department !  ;D
Show must go on ! we will be around , just not as much contributing to creating new effects .
Thank you .

S! HG

Hi HolyGrail, hi guys. :)
I have made compatible Bullets ricochet  with 4.10.1.  ;)
The other effects were compatible with 4.10.1.

I'm not seeing the shell casing being ejected I have the ricochets, is this how this mod works in 4.101, in 4.09 I have it all. I'm running HSFX 5.0 on a clean install, no modactivator.  TC

Hello, HolyGrail & Potenz... The topic marked as 4.10 compatible, but when I installed it to my fresh 4.101 + SASAct 3.04, everytime I press fire I have CTD with windows error:

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

Any ideas? Btw, preceeding your questions: yes, I have it loading before anythin' else:

Hi Mangas, in the 00_HG & P_Ricochet_GunSmoke_Bullets_3D_Smoketrail folder, you replace the 8D6CE2FE0EE939B2 file, for equal name file from Ricochet folder.

The only 8D6CE2FE0EE939B2 file compatible  with 4.10.1 is from Ricochet folder.

I've tested it in SAS Most Excellent Modact, HSFX 5.0.1 and UP 3.0 RC. ;)
I liked what I Saw so could you please tell me what mod/mods I need to download and exactly what I need to do with them to install in HSFX 5.01. Thanks TC

You download the file:
0.50_Caliber_Gun_Effects.zip

Into this file you will find 4 folders:
00_HG&P_Ricochet_Gunsmoke_Bullets_2D_Smoketrail
00_HG&P_Ricochet_GunSmoke_Bullets_3D_Smoketrail
00_HG&P_Ricochet_GunSmoke_Only_No_Bullets_Smoketrail
00_P&HG_Ricochet_Only

You can put into your mods folder one that you like best

You download the file:
Ricochet_4.10.1.7z

You replace the 8D6CE2FE0EE939B2 file in the folder that you chose before, for equal name file from Ricochet_4.10.1 folder.
Got it, thanks   TC

I can't tell if it works because whenever I get up to 70% loading, I crash :(. I know it's not the ricochet mod because I deleted that and it still wasn't working.

Hello guys.

I saw it one of the shows video on the youtube (this (http://youtu.be/L2PwldKHW60)), and it would be my question that this ricochet exists from water? I admit it, I was searching guncamera films, but I did not find one like this. There is for example this:
http://youtu.be/tjr8ZtEcrtE (http://youtu.be/tjr8ZtEcrtE)
At start, and at 1:31 visible this effect, but the bullets ricochet from the ships... can you show a video, on which this is visible clearly?
In a very flat angle it is possible. As it is possible to drop the bomb flatly, bouncing on water. I believe it, but from a high angle like this?

I found this qoute on discovery channel forum, where the same one was the topic of the talk.
"Bullets ricochet off water at impact angles less than 7 degrees for most bullets. Their departure angle tends to be greater than the striking angle. From an article in a forensics firearms journal."
I do not know that it's true or not, I ask because of it.

It's pretty close, take a machine gun and shoot at a body if water sometime and you'll see it.
It's pretty spectacular with a SAW and a 100 round belt of all tracers  8)

Hi. I edit my previous post now just. Shooting from low angle, this totally credible. But from a high dive (like Il2 video)?

  A very lucky guy - just becuase there's no enemies around, doesn't mean after shooting, you should not relocate immediately - then again, hitting a stone or something in/on the dirt that could rebound the bullet almost perfect 3 Dimensional 180 deg is something itself.
  You can hear the rebounded bullet whizzing as it gyroscopicaly tumbles back to origin...

  Note to gun owners, before shooting at a wilderness range, always 1st check that the dirt in the target zone is dirt, & don't aim at hard things like rocks, stones, pebbles etc...
  Unless your robocop, try not set up ricochette's like a gunners version of pool/snooker/billiards, unless in combat and you have no other choice to risk it.

Can it happen that the MG bullets making ricochet hit the tanks bottom during straffing ?
I presume that tanks in iL-2 have NO ARMOR on the bottom , this means that MG bullets could destroy heavy tanks using ricochet...

best way to find out is to try, mate - can't do any harm.
it's marked 412, so i would guess so, but the only way to know for sure is to try...
it's not the sort of mod that's going to break your game...
