Great looking! I'd like to use the smoke mod especially due to single core issues using the multi core to produce smoke/explosions/gun muzzle flash, will the smoke mod work better (ie faster) for those using single core? Its the one big drawback for those with even very fast single cores which otherwise renders all the graphics quite well! thanks!

I followed the link, is this the file Im looking for?

U-Boot_7bDas_Wasser_den_Rr.rar

I see "swastika file" real german speech, and one more, but just want to make sure.

The smoke file is AilSmoke.rar

This mods only replace textures files, so there are no impact in fps, not betther, no worse. You will retain the same fps you have now even with all this mods instaled.

nice work. Using the moon, cloud and wave textures. For some reason the smoke mod makes my fire/smoke animations look blocky

Clouds is good.But moon...


Why not choose a more realistic figure?



And Deckwave not good,Its error is speed, not a pattern

! I noticed an inconsitency with other mods.

When I extraced the packed files, it dumped the files without a containing folder. Other mods so far has contained a named folder that can simply be extracted without creating double set of folders.

With these files I had to use the command "extract to xxx" instead of "extract here".

And nice clouds!

Edit: I noticed an issue while playing where the smoke sprite seem to be lit up by the fire sprite or something. Not sure what it looks like. The screenshot was taken when looking through the binoculars.

Should these mods be installed before or after ''Capthelms Lighting Effects mod for sh5''.

JSGME reports a conflict with the "Thumbs.db" file if i try to enable them after. Whats is this file and what may i expect to lose from the previous mod if i overwrite it?

Thanks for your nice work btw !

Hi all

First, congratulations for this mod

I noticed the same problem than you, Decoman.

Any idea about this ?
