 Post Topic: Advanced Particles Mod (New Beta Released [1.0.1]) - Created
PostPosted 20.07.2008, 01:19 
Advanced Particles Mod - Created by HavokSage

Description:

This mod changes many common particle effects in crysis to improve realism and most importantly excitement and playability. This mod has been in the works for a while now, mainly just tweaking the particles for optimization and making sure they aren't too over the top.

Features

*Small fires start when explosions are near buildings or foliage (not dynamic but I'm working on it :P will spread a little then go out, does not damage AI yet, I have a way of doing this but it may take a little longer to implement ;) )
*Wood chipping much improved, 3d bits of physicalized wood splinters.
*Smoke that stays much longer
*When Cliffs are shot there are small landslides
*Dirt and Soil kicked up from explosions (Explosions on soil send a barrage of soil that will fly out)
*More dust when trees are cut
*Realistic blood spatter (OK so maybe not realistic, but Crysis need more gore :P)

I think thats everything but there may be more ;)

Enjoy!

Sweet job havok, i dig the new particles, is any of this done in fg? Or all just done in particle editor? To make the fire move alittle like in farcry 2, make it affected by wind i guess, but no idea atm how to damage AI and you with fire from particles :(

Hmmm I'm interested in testing it, but does it decrease performance much? I'll send you a PM :)

Have u redone the vehicle exposions? Cause i would like to see a chopper/vtol/ltv/truck turn into a large fireball rather then a cartoony puff. And are the particles affected by the wind to they have collision with objects (i mean mainly smoke).

Well unless you know how to make particles physicalized and not be deformed then please tell ;)
