Air Show Smoke for Fireball's Bomb Bay Doors Plus
« on: April 24, 2010, 03:11:15 AM »

Hi, there were several aspects of the PAT smoke mod which I didn't really like so in order to get my power keys back etc... I've taken some of the smoke files from the PAT smoke mod and incorporated it into the Air Show Smoke capability in Fireball's Bomb Bay Door Plus mod. This should work for all users who have that mod and those on UP and also HSFX (not tested). If you can open bomb bay doors then you probably have this new "Plus" version for those running mod packs.

The smoke from the PAT mod has been edited a bit, it now lasts a bit longer and is also thinner as before it was just an unrealistic cloud of smoke (of course better than what we had before but not actually very realistic). This of course helps visibility now of other planes if you are flying in the smoke or near it etc... Also it may help some people's frame rates possibly (not tested).

I do not take credit for this mod, I have just altered some effect files and played with a few things in the mods.

Download: http://www.filefront.com/16230455/AirShowSmoke.rar

Instructions:

Extract and put the AirShowSmoke folder into your MODS folder.

Open your conf.ini with notepad and make a new section called [Mods]. (some of you may already have this section)

Place these two lines under that [Mods] Section:

AirShowSmoke=1 (1 = Red Smoke, 2 = White Smoke, 3 = Blue Smoke)
AirShowSmokeEnhanced=1

Swap the number 1 for whatever colour of smoke you prefer.



This mod is compatible online and others will see smoke coming from the middle of your plane in that colour, but it will be thin smoke as they don't have these effect files.

Hello Raptor

Thx for adding to the immersion m8.
I have a simple Q.
Is there any other install/operate instruction needed to trigger this little beauty?
I installed as per the info you provided incl conf.ini but I still get the default pink/green wingtip smoke.
I have Bomb Bay Doors Plus mod installed, I open BBD from a hotkey on my js.

Thanks again :)

Hi, as long as in your conf.ini it has the two line entries under a [Mods] section it should work. It might be that you are using an old version of the bomb bay door mod. Can you tell me which mod pack you are running? The pink/green wingtip smoke shouldn't conflict this.

The latest version of the bomb bay door mod which works with this mod can be found here: http://www.allaircraftarcade.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=10234&sid=0362db226c377c8420305eeac140304e

Heya Raptor

Fristly, Thxvm for helping.

I've got the [Mods] setup as epr your example np.
I'm using BBD mod v2.5.3 in an install of 2.01.
I'll deactivate all mods in jsgme then reload one at a time, that ought to find the clash ...assuming its a mod conflict?

Something I noticed when I made effects for Bomb_Bay_Doors is, if you made a ntrk video with the stock airshow smoke, you still seeing the stock airshow smoke in that video.
If you want to see the smoke in your old videos you need the PAT_Smoke_Cam.

Thanks F-22 Raptor so much, If I knew how to edit the files then I would have done this a long time ago.

Hi,

It shouldn't be a mods conflict. Since you are running UP 2.01 it already has the bomb bay door plus mod. Just check that you have installed the mod correctly.

Your path should look something like this:
C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\IL-2 Sturmovik 1946\MODS\AirShowSmoke\3do\Effects\Aircraft

(It should  look like that if you go into every single folder you can in that mod. If it is like that^^ then it is installed correctly and as long as the lines are in your conf.ini file then you should see center smoke coming from your plane. It should also be thick unlike default smoke if the mod itself is installed in the correct location

Well if you get Plutonium(The upgraded version) then this is the only Airshow smoke mod you can use because the PAT smoke mod conflicts with Plutonium and your game will crash.
