Jara, quick question. Is there a way to control the density of Flak? Say, denser over important targets, like observation balloons and sparser over less important targets like ... orphanages? Also, is it possible to have Flak guns to direct fire in a more spread apart pattern when you fly into a cloud? They can’t see you, but they will still try to shoot you down? Just wondering.

Great collection an mods and very convenient manager. My thanks to everyone involved!

Would it be possible to add a zoom limit? I find the highest 3 or 4 steps of the zoom excessive (and unrealistic) and would rather limit the zoom to a bit less.

Can you be more specific, pls? Is the max zoom level too high? Or do you wish to have finest division? You can choose moderate or minimum levels of zoom (e.g. 1 or 2, i.e. 10 or 20 percent forward).

I mean the maximum available zoom so that rather than having zoom levels from -50 to 50 it could be set to -50 to 30 for example. The default max zoom level allows me to eyeball an enemy planes model from well over 2 kilometers and it's pretty much unusable without padlock (or pause).

You do not have to use max zoom level. Instead, you can select any zoom level that fits you best.

The Deafult zoom level is not restorable by "Restore default settings" button. You can restore it only manually by setting the selector to "0" (WOFF's default).

Yeah I use the Multimod to be fully zoomed out by default but I constantly change the zoom level for various reasons. In most flight sims I just use two buttons for fully zoomed out view for general use and the typical default zoom when I need to zoom in.

Can you tell me what file the zoom related stuff is located in?

Hi JJJ, a multimod request (or maybe this feature is already there and I missed it?)

The F6 view is too close for my taste ( by default it's closer than I have my main view set). Could it be adjustable in your mod?

Thanks!!

Has anyone had any issues using the latest Multimod with WOFF PE?

I'm using version 1.9.1. So far I've had only three or four missions with PE but haven't noticed anything wrong.

If someone is applying multimod on top of fresh WOFFPE install could you please check if any of the default values have changed since UE.

One setting that might not be working with PE is "No wings breaking explosions". Even with the settings turned on and presumably applied successfully, I have seen all wings popping off an exploding plane in both mid-air explosions I have seen so far.

I also have a question regarding the 'Rear guns accuracy' mod: how does this setting differ from the in-game option for less accurate rear gunners?

In my experience the "no wings breaking" option has never been 100% effective. I would occasionally have them break in UE as well.

Yes, this feature may not work, especially if PE's simulation.xml file differs from UE. I cannot compare both files, because I do not own PE yet.
@hoongadoonga - to clarify - this feature should disable simultaneous all four wings breaking. Not single or double wings breaking, which is realistic.

The simulation.xml file is mostly changed, so I would not attempt to replace it. Except for inserting 'n' in the line of code for wings breaking off. That is still there.

Multimod does'not replace whole files! It looks for specific variable and modifies only its value - that is its advantage over other JSGME mods that replace whole files and do not allow more mods to one file. That was main purpose I created the multimod (and other Java utilities). Just keep on mind: apply multimod over all JSGME mods (on top of other mods, as the very last one) and WOFF must not be run in background while saving multimod changes.
BTW: putting 'n' in the line of code for wings breaking off is not enough. You must modify it as follows:
Quote
<BreakRule SystemID="fuselage_structure" DestroyNeighbours="n"/>
<BreakRule SystemID="center_fuel_tank" DestroyNeighbours="n"/>
<BreakRule SystemID="right_wing" DestroyNeighbours="n" breakOffPart="y" hidePart="y" modelName="r_wing"/>
<BreakRule SystemID="left_wing" DestroyNeighbours="n" breakOffPart="y" hidePart="y" modelName="l_wing"/>

I stand corrected. However, without access to the code and knowing what that line exactly does, I believe this change may have an adverse affect on the new features of the progressive damage in PE. So, I would still leave that part of the simulation.xml alone.

It is simple - it does what it says smile . It just does not allow destroying of neighbour structure in case of fuselage, fuel tanks and/or wing break. It has nothing to do with progressive damage model - that is part of cfs3 code.
