Thread: Better firing arc mod

  1. #1

    Default Better firing arc mod

    This mod makes the firing range borders more noticeably (less transparent and more bold), which helps in ground battles in the snow landscapes.


    Installation:
    Put the extracted "patch_firing_arc.pack" file to "\empire total war\data"

    Update:
    Add a few variations of this mod

    Very nice mate
    Are you able to alter the colors of the selected unit in the selection pane in battle?

    Very simple.
    Makes shooting radius more appreciable. Especially in the snow battle
    Your mod is very useful, I was waiting something of this sort!
    Just a suggestion: name it "firing range mod", since firing arc is usually a ballistic concept that means the vertical angle at which a projectile is shot.

    I agree with what the second poster wrote, if you could find a way to alter the color for the selected units in battle it would be great. At the moment it is very difficult to distinguish which units are selected, there is very little color contrast.

    Nice. Definitely downloading this. I can't believe all the simple little things we've had to download to make the game better. CA could've done all this in a day.

    I think it colours the firing range borders red so you can see them in the snow, am I right?

    The original firing arc has red borders too, but this increases the opacity i think, so its less transparent and more visible
    Great mod!

    I think you need to change the name of your thread, however, as it is a bit ambiguous. May be you should name it Rangefinder visibility mod or something along those lines

    I do not know how to change the name of trade. The mod is called by the name of the modified file - fire_arc_diffuse.dds

    Great work mate, the vanilla range arc is really hard to see, this one makes it much easier.

    But still, is it possible to fill that arc with a color (50% red e.g.) ?
    Especially when using artillery I find myself often enough searching the range arc with a loupe.

    No. I don't see any easy way. But I did another two variants. Maybe version 3 will look better (see first post)
