    Hi.

    The Idea of the Mod is great, but I have installed the mod for version STA 1.2, and I am not seeing the effects you show in your main post.

    Which brings me to wondering if this mod will work with the 1.2 version?

    Does it work with v1.2?

    It should because these effects are essentially simple tweaks of stuff which is in the common resolution file. You just need to copy of few paragraphs from the mod into your game base common res file.

    Thank You.

    Hmmmm, I didn't know I had to edit the common res file. I thought just copying the files over using jsgme would be enough.

    cheers.

    Sometime sit works sometimes it doesn't .Here's what I do once I have the common res files that I want I put them in the game main data folder and make sure that any other common res file present in the mods that I have enabled in the JSGME is removed so there's no conflict and this way you are sure that only the latest version is left.


    BY new effects are you talking about the explosions, smoke and fire ones?

    Hello. Very Happy
    I try to reveal about Geomorphic parameter.
    I do not know whether there is an opportunity to use this.

    This is a very great investigation! Perhaps, we may fix so called error "swimming target". When the tank stays on the ground and user see via the gunsight there is effect of "swimming", when the target slowly goes away from the cross of sight.
    If u increase "track friction N1"/"gravity" will it help?

    It is more effective to change the center of gravity for that phenomenon than change the geomorphic parameter.

    e.g. Stug3 G

    before
           jx = 25000;
    jy = 25000;
    jz = 10000;

    after

    jx = 62178;
    jy = 72254;
    jz = 23139;

    It will not be lost completely, but it will be improved.
    How to calculate the center of gravity was found in the commentary on how to make 3D model of this(?) forum before, but it was not found now. Question

    Wow! thanks a lot Kibihiyo! I knew it was possible to change how tanks interact with the different soils in game, I just didn't know which parameter was responsible for it. Excellent video. I already changed grass to have 0.5 dust so when tanks ride on it or shoot, some dust will rise up. Looks much more realistic now.

    I shall post the last version of the effect/textures tweaks I made soon

    Very impressive! Where can we find this Another_effects_mod? And is it already included in STA 3.2?

    Hello. Leo K Very Happy

    You may know, dust parameter is also controlled by gun parameter. Why do not you adjust it at the same time.

    Apart from that, may I use the texture you were distributing with my mod?

    Another battle effect mod is adjusted for STA2.2. Still, if you do not mind. http://wikiwiki.jp/pzfr/?Steel%20Tank%20Add-on

    Kibihiyo, will this mod be adjusted for STA 3.2 to?
