Smoke gone since 4.0?

Recommended Posts

Since I have updated to 4.0, I don't seem get any smoke-effects anymore. This refers to all kinds of smoke (popped by tanks and infantry, fired by arty). I have switched on and off (deleted) my effects-mods, but it doesn't make any difference.

Have I messed up my game somehow or does anyone else experience the same lack of smoke in CM:BS?

Oh god. Please delete this thread. I can't stand the shame. :unsure: Why would anyone turn off smoke anyway? I'm toggling trees and icons almost all the time, but smoke? 

 

In other words: Thanks, roecketman. "Issue" solved. ;)

Don't worry, we've all done it. Smoke can be handy to turn off if you want to get a feel for what a unit's LOS will be roughly after the smoke dissipates. Naturally you can't use the LOS tool, but drop down to camera 1 or 2 to get a feel for it.

Yep we all have - and a handful have posted here about it. :D

As for why anyone would turn it off - smoke can mean you cannot see a damn thing to give orders. When I need to turn smoke off for giving orders I try to remember to turn it back on right away to save me from forgetting later.
