Missile smoke trails issues


Recommended Posts

Been fiddling with the game to figure out a way to produce better smoke trails without the zoom toilet paper trail problem.

 

I figured out something. Flare smoke trails do not suffer from this problem, neither chimny. Is is possible to replace standard smoke trails with those of flare style?

 

It bothers me to hell the graphic glitches associated with the standard smoke trails.

 

Also I have always HATED that every game that models the AMRAAM gives it an invisible trail, when in fact it does leave a trail. A faint grey trail but nevertheless still there. Has anyone figured what prevents the game from showing a trail for the AIM-120? It looks so odd the way the game models it.

I think you would get some serious fps issues if the flare smoke came from missiles as well. You may have noticed, that pumping 2-3 flares on the runway, and watching the smoke fade away, really hurts the fps?

 

The smoke issue never really bothers me. It's such a small issue. I never zoom out so much that i get those paper-cut trails.

I need to zoom out to see the RWR on the russian birds. 1280x1024 on a 19" LCD monitor.

 

Anyway I can disable the flares shaders so that it wont hurt FPS anymore. Anyone knows how to fiddle with smoke properties for this pupose?

Can I have a tweak so that missile smoke trails look BRIGHT ORANGE?

 

It would really help my evading skills a lot ;)

 

or maybe a button that somehow makes all enemy missiles explode at launch and take the enemy with them.

 

j/k :p

Well, i did say flare smoke, and the only smoke color for flares is white. :p

My puposes are purely aestetical and for a bit more realism.

You have to be zoomed farther into the cockpit to keep the smoke from looking like it does in that picture.

 

Omg what is this? I have never expirienced anything like this yet I was playing Lomac a lot.

Maybe you were using wrong drivers? If you want to see truly beautiful effects of missile trails go download a clip where these first improved effects were used. It really looked realistic.

Not sure if its been mentioned, but if you also watch the "Super Su-27" trackfile you can see the paper tissue in effect a few times during the maneuvres :D

 

 

I think this is by design. ED might have thought in this game we would sanitize the skies to wipe the enemies out of the sky and send the other coalition down the drane like tards. And thus we get the toilet paper trails! :D

if u notice...those trails ...i.e., toilet paper is from flanker 2. They updated it ...but didn't bother caring about the zooming out effect in the cockpit.

It happens in external view when you zoom out too much as well...
