Default [REL] M.E.P v5 ( ManosEnvironmentPro -version5 )

ManosEnvironmentPro version5 ( M.E.P v5 )

Mod Version 5 is released.

change log
v 5 -->
1. reworked fog's 3d model by Fahnenbohn which eliminates an odd effect during the vanishing of upper edges of high mountains
(a discussion for this issue had started after post 203 of this thread).
2. slight tweaks on colors ,especially for heavy weather (now ,during midday at heavy weather, clouds are brighter).
3. added an optional mini mod which makes the reflections on water more close to stock ones during midday.

Mod Version 4.3 is released.

change log
1. eliminates totally an issue at reflections known as ''polygon effect'' (credits to Phillip Thomsen)
2. slight tweaks on reflections
3. slight tweaks on waves
4. slight tweaks on sky

Mod Version 4.2 is released.

change log
1. corrects a mistake i made at scene.dat of MEP v4.1 ( more info at post 118 )

Mod Version 4.1 is released.

change log
1. resettings at crew visuals for avoiding the effect of the repeated 'ship spotted' reports.
2. corrects a mistake at sim.cfg which was from test files.
3. corrects a mistake at visual settings in AI_sensors for LSH3 v5.1.
4. adds the visual sensor settings for Stiebler's patch (version ''4B_V16B1_Revised'').
5. eliminates the effect of 'flying ships' above horizon line.
6. reworked the look of ships when they are close to visual limits
7. reworked the effect of the ships vanishing their hulls to further distances.
8. adds Visual Sensors for CCoM v9.0 (after users request)

No changes at colors.

i want to thank the members ''Sepp von Ch.'' , ''Consigliere'' , ''Leitender'' and ''Tupolev'' for their pointings,tests and help to the above parts of the mod and ''Fahnenbohn'' who designed the new 3d model for the fog.
Special thanks to OLC (OneLifeCrisis) for his great environment mods which was the inspiration and base for MEP.


MEP v4 is a 20km environment mod

it is the sequel of MEP v3

New colors , New reflection maps and brand New 3d models for all environment which are correcting many previous issues (like,for example,the horizon color's gradation).

only for nvidia cards: i strongly suggest to use nhancer programme with RUBINI's settings(besides of all the goods of this programme,you will not have the sunhalo missing issue).
look here:
Nvidia tweaks to SH3/SH4

Got it! I loved v3 so this one is going to have to go some to top it, but I'm sure it will.

Many thanks Makman!

Your work is awesome. I hope this Environment will be added to HAHD as optional. It seems a must have. Congratulations!

Best regards.

Is there any additional mods that need to go along with M.E.P. v4? Such as the Visual Sensors for GWX? (I know we needed them for v3.)

I am impressed with M.E.P. v3. Just wanted to know before switching over to v4. Thanks!
