Default [REL] electric torpedo trail fix

The electric torpedo trail fix mod changes the bubble trail that the stock electric torpedoes --TII (G7e), TIII (G7e), TIII FATII (G7e), TIII LuTII (G7e), TIV (G7es), TV (G7es) and TXI (G7es)-- leave behind to a quickly fading, barely visible cavitation trail only.

This mod *should* be compatible with every variation/mod of SHIII, from just the stock, patched game up through all the other mods.

After unzipping, either copy/paste the electric torpedo trail fix mod in the MODS folder of your appropriate game folder then enable using JSGME, or just copy and paste the file direct into your Data/Library folder (first backing up the original file first, of course!)

Thanks to skwasjer and his wonderful Silent 3ditor!

test asap
thanks

-- update --

conflict with
Longer Torpedo Wakes 1.02 ... and that I of course understand.

test will continue though I will miss the long steamtrail of the T1 heading streight towards the enemy....

maybe you could make the trail if the T1 last longer a bit? just an idea cause I like that Mod

I'd totally forgotten about cross-checking that mod with this one.

That's an easy enough fix . . . in a way. I don't remember whose mod the Longer Torpedo Wakes is. I'd like to get their permission to incorporate their mod into this one. I could just modify mine but, essentially, I'd be duplicating their work and idea, and I absolutely insist on giving credit for another's work and getting their permission prior to tinkering with their idea.

Also, at some point soon I'll be releasing a mod (--fingers crossed--) that changes the models for the various torpedoes so that each style displays their correct characteristics vis-a-vis detonator shape, number of propellors, etc. That mod will include fixing the electric torpedo trail, and I'd like to include the Longer Torpedo Wakes aspect with that as well.

It is just so funny to fire a T1 and see it move towards the target... or see the trail of a FaT... but not neccessarily a must

I think you might find the original version was by NVDrifter.

But I'm looking forward to the T1 Trail fixed version if possible. OR if not would you mind telling me which values need changing in the DAT file to get them back.

Thanks

I've lengthened the wakes. Was a fairly simple fix. Now the steam torpedoes leave a wake around 30 seconds long. I'm trying to 'thicken' the underwater bubble trail as well, but that's sorta kicking my butt for some reason. --mutters--

Once I figure that out I'll release a revised mod that both changes the electric torpedo trails and also the steam torpedo wakes and bubble trail.
