OK, So here is current release 1_10 of my effects mod for WOFF UE. JSGME install recommended.

Contains New Padlock Icon, New Flak effects, New Smoke effects, New Craters, New Impact effects, New Fire effects, New textured cockpit blood, "Hot" bullet casing, New Dirt Spray textures, New Translucent Oil Textures for Windscreen damage and fuselage, New Dust effects, New trees for All seasons, New snow on buildings in season, New HD skyboxes. Retextured stack of objects and buildings. New roofs for all generic buildings. Retextured All Hangars. New season textures etc etc.



Making the mod for me is relatively easy, but the amount of time it takes to test everything and attempt to get screenshots to show it off is an unbelievable pain !

So I hope you enjoy it ! Thanks a lot !

Did you modded a proper Effects.xml file located in WOFFScenery/Effects/Effects folder?

No mate. Thanks for the help. I will look into it tomorrow. 1 hour to make the mod, 3 hours trying to test it in game and get screenshots, 4 hours tearing out my hair trying to get it to work, lol.

to be honest, my FPS dropped with these. I do like the Flak textures though.


make mistakes and learn from them

Hi mate, Thanks for the feedback. Are you sure that it was my textures causing your framerate problem?

The reason I ask is I can't really see how, as the texture sizes in my mod are exactly the same as the originals. There is only 1 texture in my mod that's larger than an original texture and that one is only larger by less than 3kb.













Just for the record, I have noticed 0 frame rate difference on a single 970 gtx and i5 4690k using fraps and MSI Afterburner to monitor frames.

Thank you for the feedback guys, I really appreciate it. Obviously this is only the first version so I aim to improve it and add to it over time. If any one does have any problems, then I will try to fix anything to the best of my ability.

Thanks for taking the effort to try it. I'm quite sad in regards to making mods as I enjoy it and find messing with textures/graphics, sound engines and game engines cathartic for some weird reason!?!, call it a hobby if you will, so If I ever make something I think someone else may get enjoyment from, I always try and release it for everyone to try. I appreciate that some of my stuff won't be everyone's cup of tea, but there's no harm in trying though.

Cheers !

I think we all appreciate modding efforts. Your contribution is a good one for sure.
There are a good many modders here but one talent we are short on is GMAX model rendering. Hopefully someone will come along to contribute.

I agree it is like a hobby and a break from flying. It also gives us a chance to give back to the community and to improve the options available in WOFF.

THANKS FOR YOR WORK!

Cheers mate!

4L0M, something weird just happened while I was using your mod. One of my flight members crashed and burned and the weird thing was there were two smoke pillars each going in the opposite direction. I didn't even think to take a screenshot at the time, so I'm sorry about that. Maybe this is something you can look into?

Banjoman, I've seen the 2-smoke crash in vanilla WOFF, even pre-UE. I don't think it has anything to do with 4L0M's mod.

I just had my a** handed to me in a dogfight, and when I crashed, I only saw one column of smoke.

I am glad we have new fellow modder here too.

Fullofit, if you've seen it before then I'm sure it doesn't have anything to do with the mod.

Hi there. Here is version 0.2 of my FX mod for testing ( JSGME INSTALL ) :

4L0MFX 0.2


Reworked ALL Blood spatter effects for better quality, New night lighting effects, New Oil Slick, New debris textures, Significantly better alpha channels on all textures, New fireballs, Tweaked flak and improved Alpha channel, New spark effect.

All feedback welcome as it's a nightmare trying to see them all in game to test!

ENJOY !
