Anyone here know of any good tracer mods for the original Il2, maybe something more realistic, or different colors? Thanks. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

/me wonders if it was possible to override the ridiculous long-range visibility of tracers with hacked mipmap levels

Visibily is one thing, but the color is spot-on apparently. Many vets have given fist person accounts of the crazy multi-colored tracers during large battles. There are many ways to make tracer ammo, and many techniques lead to different colors.

The short answer to your question is no. The folks at AAA have disallowed any modification to tracers, as to do so would mean edited class files for the weapons - and this is a real big no-no.

I had heard that the colors were accurate, just didn't know if there was anything to change maybe the shape or size of the tracers. I can definitely live with what's there to begin with.
Thanks for the responses! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
