[MOD] Multicoloured Tracers

Recommended Posts

This mod adds several new tracer colours. I thought that the stock orange tracers were rather boring, so I tried to recreate the tracers in Il-2 Sturmovik: 1946.

The following tracers are included:

 

Green

  • Soviet 7.62 mm

Blue

  • German 13 mm
  • German 20 mm

White

  • Italian 7.7 mm
  • Italian 12.7 mm
  • Soviet 12.7 mm

Yellow

  • German 15 mm
  • German 30 mm HE

 

All other original tracers are unchanged. With this mod, attacking aircraft can sometimes be identified from afar by the colour. Although the realism is very questionable, I think it makes the game more interesting. 

 

Download the mod here. Install using JSGME or similar. Alternatively, do it manually by putting the mod's "data" folder in your main Il-2 directory. Make sure to have mods on in the game.

 

Note that this is not just a texture replacement; it supplements the two original tracers with four new types.

What about a mod, to replace all the default smoke tracers? 

Tinier, for example

That could be done.

I mean, the tinier tracers, not the multicoloured

For now, I've made this simple mod to remove the smoke trails from projectiles. Note that it's not compatible with my other tracer mod. 

 

I still hope to create a more comprehensive tracer mod eventually.

Hello, I believe that after some recent updates the 7.62 ShKAS green tracers don't work anymore. Any chance for an update to the mod?

This is great. Im use to DCS where you can identify aircraft by tracers and it is very confusing in IL2 and hard to set up shots when diving without being able to identify by tracers before hand.

Thanks

This mods seems to remove the smoke lines from the MG131. TBH i am a sucker for the smoke lines in general. Could you maybe update this mod (can also confirm green ones are not working anymore) to give the smoke lines back to the MG131 and maybe as a super plus add the lines to the 50cal and 303s ?????

I recently updated Clod to the Blitz and saw that they changed gfx of smoke traces from more straight to the spiraling ones, I find it nice for view, but do they more truly represent real ones compared to what we have in Il2 GB ?

Just a quick one:

I installed manually in the corresponding folders but nothing appears.

Any suggestions?
