Hi all,

I believe there is a tracer mod out but i can't find a link. Can anyone help? It makes the tracers like glowing balls I believe.

The VBS2 mod, available for a limited time only at the knock-down rate of $1500?

There are videos of VBS2 with very nice tracers...

I have it but it is not as simple as dropping in the mod in the addon folder. I got it from the official site's mod forum.

Any chance of a link mate?


From the hills rebounding
Let this war cry sounding
Summon all at Cambria's call
The mighty force surrounding

Men of Harlech onto glory
This shall ever be your story
Keep these fighting words before ye
Welshmen never yield

Here is one link.

To make them work you have to edit existing missions. They also do not work for custom ammo unless you edit the script inside the tracer addon. Also they do not "replace" the BIS tracers so to remove those you also have to edit the weapon.pbo config to remove them. I think there already is a mod for that somewhere but I did my own. Now with my setup I've edited a few sp missions I always play to use them and removed the default tracers for small arms ammo. Since I don't play MP this isn't an issue, but for MP there would be issues.

Hi Ebud...long time.

Why no MP? Connection issues at home?? We've got a pretty good server here at SimHQ, mostly adults.

Ok.... I fake it... You oughta join us sometime if you can.

Anyway glad to see ya here. Lots of good folks/sim nuts here.

Yeah Nixer, thats why I started posting on here lately. The "other" board is filled with idiots. This place... not so much \:\)

I'll try and get my copy of ARMA cleaned up or just install a version just for mp and give it a go.

About the tracers. If you need an example mission, let me know as I have a couple I use for templates.
