Veins CMBS Effects

Recommended Posts

I did the Americans that are in the game already, so no point modding them.

 

I have some mildy modded Russians and Ukrainians I use but they really aren't that diffrent from the stock ones. The odd new vest mixed in etc.

 

Modern uniforms usually don't cry out for modding like WW2 uniforms do as you can't see the creases/dirt etc like you can in plain drab clothing, because of the camo pattern covers it.

 

So most probably not.

Simple enough to do. Which units would you imagine might be involved?

So far 1st Armored,3rd Infantry,1st Cav, and the 82nd Airborne. That's going by the breifing texts from the campaign, and various battles. I would also guess 2nd SBCT, just because Strykers are in the game, and the 173rd Airborne IBCT just because Italy isn't that far away.

If BFC are using you to do textures why aren't these effects in the game as standard?

If BFC are using you to do textures why aren't these effects in the game as standard?

Because:

1. I was asked to create the U.S. uniforms and gear. Not the effects.

2. The effects would have be 100% unique artwork, and as is the flames and explosions are only 95%. Therefore they would have to be redone from scratch. There is a cost versus reward issue there as it takes a LOT of time to do well.

3. All the effects would need to be redone to ensure consistency.

4. Perhaps they like the effects the way they are.

5. You have my easily accessible mod.

Super nice Vein! Would this be suitable for other titles too? Seems like quite an improvement. Will get some free time to install CMBS this week and try out how good your latest iteration is. :D

Will send you pm.

Thank you!

They look fantastic in game.

 

One thing though, I stand to be corrected, but as I understand it, GaJ isn't going to support BS.  Not sure why, but speculation is cost related.

I believe when CMRT was released and mods started being uploaded, the traffic to his site increased hosting costs.

Which is why there were quite a few donations.

 

If he needs help again, he just needs to speak up.

Thanks for the link vein - you left the conversation so couldn't reply via PM.

 

Really do appreciate the work guys like you do modding these games and didn't want you to think it went unappreciated.

Thanks for sending me the Vein. BTW does anybody here know how to reply to PM messages on the new forum software? I couldnt find the button...

I'll PM you instructions - oh wait :)

At the very top of the page towards the right hand side in the black bar at the top there is an open letter icon. That's the place where you can get to your PMs. See circled button in this screen shot.
