File Name: Cold Waters reduced underwater visibility mod (9.6 KB) Download

Description


This is very basic modification of stock environment files that vastly decreases underwater visibility in Cold Waters.
It's aim is to increase amount of underwater "fog" to hide from player the objects further away thus decrease the situation awarness (SA)
Also it is serving as simple example of basic modding of Cold Waters.

The values this mod adjusts is the SubmergedFogDensity=XXX for every state of weather and time of day, from 0.015 (stock) to around 0.25-0.3 depending on time of day and sky conditions. I should point out that the new values are very close to the Atlantic Fleet ones, making underwater visibility similar in appearance for those familiar with previous Killerfish Games title.

Fantastic mod. Easily the most indispensable.

Have you figured out any way to deal with the shadow glitches at a certain distance?

It'd seem fog and shadows aren't quite on the same page, and you see the latter beyond what the former should be allowing.

This is simply great. Makes the game so much more realistic and immerse.

Nice work!

Captain Shadow - that's a side effect of ambient occlusion, present in a lot of games. As far as I'm aware there's no easy fix for it although I could be wrong.

yeah sorry I forgot about the comments

yes as rossmum said it is artifact of using ambient occlusion on meshes, the only way now is to turn it off in video settings

Thanks so much! This is one of these simple but super needed mods for a full immersion-style gameplay. I only wonder if color of the water should be -greener or not, but this is rather for KillerfishGames. Thanks again!

Does this also cut visibility out of water? I'd like to still have the default view distance for watching my harpoons or tomahawks hit ships/facilities.

There is a little problem with range of Ambient Occlusion btw. U can see shadow from A.Oc. from very long distance.

is there any possibility you could host this file on a mirror as this site won't let me download it without buying a subscription

Water colour can be adjusted, I just left it at stock values, works for me that way, matter of personal preferences

This gives the feel of a real ocean. Not like the Vanilla ver. (Clear Pool Waters).
Excellant Mod!

For those of you who are having problems with shadows being visible over large distances, turn off ambient occlusion in the video-options!
