[MOD] Planes Draw Distance

Recommended Posts

Don't want to derail Liz's thread, discuss this here.

 

http://www.mediafire.com/file/em9bivvcmg3pid7/imageatt_3006.rar/file

 

Sept 27th -Quick edit/update, minimal testing, real life has me busy, anything weird let me know.

 

This will increase draw distance for planes. However, since you'll get an error if you try to fly a modded plane, you have to load the specific mod for the plane you're going to fly. 

 

So,

-know which plane you're going to fly

-load the appropriate imageatt_planename mod with jsgme

-start il2

 

If you want to fly something else

-close il2

-disable your current imageatt_planename mod with jsgme

-enable the imageatt_planename mod that you want to fly

 

Issues

-can see them from too far

-performance? May be a problem with lots of planes

You may want to try an image attribute value of 217 instead.

Yeah I tried that, but found it very similar to default. Should probably test it more.

 

Saved track recordings save the +128 view settings, disabling the mod doesn't set the default back to 10k in the track. So tweaking this and loading a track to check is a waste of time. Just an fyi for anyone messing with this.

 

I've been messing with the settings in graphics/planes. You can load edited versions of them in the same way as the luascripts/worldobjects/planes files in this mod (by excluding the plane you're flying). Haven't had much luck with that yet.

Unrar image_att.rar. You'll have 50 folders named imageatt_a20, imageatt_albatrosd5, imageatt_bf109e7, …….on and on to imageatt_yak7bs36. All of these folders need to go in your jsgme mod folder. Before you start il2 load the appropriate mod with jsgme for the plane you're going to fly. If you're going to play a p40 campaign, load the imageatt_p40 with jsgme and start il2.

Tell me please, does this mod affect the visibility of aircraft with navigation lights? I really like smoke visible from afar, but I don’t like the fact that planes taking off can be seen through the entire map. I do not know which mod is responsible for this. :)

I checked. Even if you turn off all the mods, the lights are visible from afar. So it's not your mod.:blush:Me need to think further.:)

Woah WT spotting range :d nice work but wow we already had a too high spotting range versus IRL

guess this would be good for like something,edit: my mate was wanting to do with mixed plane sets and more like a WT RB (longer V Range and external views) for new players who dont want such a hard sim but dont want to play WT anymore.

If you don't like it, don't use it. Nobody is forcing you.

 

In the meantime, please help yourself. 😀

Good over reaction to what was a copy and paste error when i made original post. (would not send i copied it and it still broke anyways)

FYI the good work was not sarcastic, it was in relation to devs saying it was 100% impossible but a random modder does something.

Edited other post but geez.

Don't overreact to no overreaction.

 

I just thought it was funny. 

 

I'll edit the other post for people with no sense of humor.

If possible, please update for 3.011b. The mod works, but when you exit the game, it reports an error.
