Best tracer/effects addon for ArmA2?
Before you start, yes, I've used the search function.
I've seen a few demo vids on youtube etc. but I'm having a difficult time finding a good tracer and/or projectile impact effects addon for ArmA2. Does anyone have any suggestions? Are there any that are even out yet? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I was a long time OFP player and just recently picked up ArmA2. All I have to say is "why didn't I buy it SOONER?!"
Afaik there aren't yet any mods that change the tracer effects. The mod linked above changes the patterns and such, but does not touch the effects. One part of SLX modifies the impact smoke and makes it look quite nice, but no tracers there either.
oh sorry about that, all i remember is that i had downloaded that mod awhile ago and when i saw his question that was the first thing to come to mind, but ya slx has some effects you might like, its a great mod btw you should check it out.
Thanks for the comments so far guys. I had already checked out the above linked tracer mod, but it's not quite what I'm looking for. I'm interested in changing the look of the actual tracers to be a little more realistic, and maybe some improved impact effects and sparks and so on.
Have you had a look at OpticalSnare's upcoming effects mod? some nice stuff in there
Yeah, that is what started me asking around about tracer addons! His stuff is looking so much better than the stock effects. Does anyone know how his progress is coming along?

Well ive had a bit of a break from my mod as ive been working hard on it for the past month. But i should be able to finish it off soon. Il try and make it so the addons are modular.

That word always makes me happy. Thanks Opticalsnare!
