Default Waterstream

Moin, for the last few days I have been given the chance to try the excellent mod made by one of our members, and there were 2 or 3 posts about a part of this mod in the screenshots thread regarding the beauty of the waterstreams used. Another member shared a mod of these waterstreams but they are only for the VIIB and C subs, and they must be used with the German U-Boat Comp mod.



I wonder if anyone knows where can this waterstream mod be found to be used with a standard GWX3.0 install without the need of using the German U-Boat Compilation in all the subs (II, VII, IX and XXI), as a stand-alone mod compatible with any install perhaps doing some adjustments like Hsie's Exhaust & Waterstreams Combi mod? I have no idea who the author is, the name of the mod, or anything at all for that matter.



Must say that I've seen these "new" waterstreams in action and they are great, plus the watersplash effect at the bow of the hull, turm, and persicopes when diving is simply marvelous.

Any info, comment or link will be most welcome.


Thanks a lot again...

I don’t think such a water stream stand alone mod could work either with GUC and stock U-Boats (or stock GWX/NYGM etc)
To work, specific nodes have to be added to hull 3D model, linked to special effects in Particules.dat and Material.dat, and it is huge work.
Knowing GUC/GWX/NYGM etc are using their own U-Boat hull models in Data/Submarine/... i don’t see how it can work for all megamods.
Correct me if I’m wrong though...
