Hi,
I looking for mod (or file to edit), which disable just dust and smoke effect after shoot in sniper mode. When I turn off the effects in sniper mode in settings, that disable smoke completely. And that's ugly.

Thanks.

Well, read the first post again, please. I don't want just that one effect - dust during shoots.

No. I want keep turn on all smoke and dust effects in sniper mod (if shell hit ground, armor, so on), but I want disable smoke after shoot to see shell tracer. If you set effects in sniper mode in game settings to off, ALL dust and smoke effects are gone = that's ugly.

kugelhed: Soemthing like that.

now i understand , you want to disable gun barrel smoke only,  i have been confused by your first post (disable dust!! and smoke...)

still its impossible to turn off gun barrel smoke in sniper view only, you can turn it off only completely

Go into folder: \World_of_Tanks\res\particles\Tank


all files begining with "shot" are responsible for gun barrel smoke, to turn them off, simple delete them or rename them to whatever you want.

example: "shot_main.xml" to "shot_main.xml2"

Yes, I know. Thats what I tried before... But if there is possible to turn some effects in sniper mode (Wargeyming made it in 0.7.0), there must be file, which tell the game what turn on in high setting of sniper mode. And we should find it and edit line to shoot effects (and replace here line like in low setting of sniper mode).

Hi there

I am playing around with the shot files right now. As for now i am under the impression that by disabeling (renaiming/deleting)
said xml files the shot effect will disappear for both sniper mode and 3rd person view. I am trying to tweak my wot, so it will display all effects as usual in 3rd person view, and will only take away smoke and flames for sniper view, I think this is what the OP intends to have aswell :) cuz i want to see that bullet tracer without comprimising the new and nice? effects for 3rd person view.

I let you know as soon as i found a solution, but i am afraid that simply by disabling the files it will not work the way i intend to mod it. So that means probably some code changing inside the files. Will see. Just been fiddling around with it for an hour. Due to 3 hour server down i will stop testing now and play some french tanks :)

cheers golddime

PS. have been searching the web for some OTM (over target marker) preset files, anyone know a location? - might aswell do it mysef but
rather invest my time in something else. I found one i'd like to use here (smigetti)

but somehow there is no download link anymore. If someone has some cool self made presets - that would be much appreciated.
