explosion cloud replacement

Post by KM6BZH » Mon May 08, 2017 2:54 am

I was thinking about making a nuke, and I wanted a mushroom cloud. Is there a possibility to replace the cloud?

You just asked a question that has been around since the very early days of this game. Many people have asked this and the answer has always been the same. A resounding "NO".

Explosions are hard coded into the game and cannot be modified.

Nice try but no.

no no no, call it a MOAB, there won't be any issues. Big booms are fine so long as the word nuke is NOT anywhere within 100 miles of what you're intending to drop.

Of course it can be done, Obviously you should be a video game programmer to change the codes of the clouds and know how to create the textures. Beyond that, you could add exaggerated amounts of fuel to a fuel tank.
Anyway it will be impossible to create because it is forbidden to change the game code so ... you know ... :lol:

i modified a tu60 (or something like that) and i convert it to cosume low fuel and have a big thrust, for fly withing a fueltank with 5000000 amount of fuel, the explosion is colossal but the cloud still like a medium planet, i everytime when i wild that nuke i asked if it can't be changed and when i discover ysfhq i see on the 3rd party programs section: the game code can' be changed, and i simply left the bomb like that, so it can vaporize half (or near) aomori i will upload it on the midday

All you need is blender, model a flash ball, then fireball for nozzle/flaps down, then mushroom for full nozzle down or full flaps. I believe you can use flight control for that animation too.

Well idk how to use blender, but we have enough people here that know...

^^ well yes if it's just for show, you can have a realistic mushroom cloud that's user controlled. There's only limited things we can do with inserting code with 3rd party programs. Graphical effects are hard codded in the game.

Good suggestion, we already have custom weapon models but we've been asking him for custom weapon stats and effects for years. We have this thread to send requests to Soji every year

No nukes. Probably Sojis #1 rule.

Stupid Americans and their bombs :roll:

i think no because if the airplane is at high altitude the explosion will show at certain high altitude from ground and if is flying low it will see as if it are inside the planet

i think that say to soji will be better

This is starting to get derailed...no you don't need to request nukes from Soji (don't do it/wishlist doesn't allow it) But if we got the ability to make custom weapons/explosions then you could do whatever you want offline or with your friends in a private server. That's the goal, we'll see if he grants us our request.

First of all...
To some question regarding the word NUKE, I'm not planning to use the nuke in servers or other stuff... just for a video on WW2.
Second, I just thought that it can be done in the aircraft .dat or whatever, since you can change the flare.
Third, the custom weapons is too much I think... we would have chaos.
Fourth, plz stop being so mean...

Who's being mean here? We poke fun and jest, but I see no real attacks on anyone here.

Honestly guys, lighten up a little. Not everyone is out to get you!
