Weather/effects from Ew

Recommended Posts

I would like to put in my mission weather and effects which have been used in the second mission of this campaign.

I is possible to do?

If this is impossible- are there any addons which add similar things to the game?

Ash blasts and the effect that causes the environment becomes "slightly greenish" .

These effects, in particular.

Search for ppEffect collection, and that will give you all you need to know about changing enviroment colours and tints etc.

Here are the colour and grain effects used in that mission:

"colorCorrections" ppEffectAdjust [1, 0.8, -0.001, [0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0], [0.8*2, 0.5*2, 0.0, 0.7], [0.9, 0.9, 0.9, 0.0]];  
"colorCorrections" ppEffectCommit 0;

"filmGrain" ppEffectEnable true; 
"filmGrain" ppEffectAdjust [0.02, 1, 1, 0.1, 1, false];
"filmGrain" ppEffectCommit 0;

"colorCorrections" ppEffectEnable true;

And here is the wind, dust and ash:

//--- Wind & Dust
[] spawn {
//waituntil {isplayer brown};
setwind [0.201112,0.204166,true];
while {true} do {
	_ran = ceil random 5;
	playsound format ["wind_%1",_ran];
	_obj = vehicle player;
	_pos = position _obj;

	//--- Dust
		setwind [0.201112*2,0.204166*2,false];
	_velocity = [random 10,random 10,-1];
	_color = [1.0, 0.9, 0.8];
	_alpha = 0.02 + random 0.02;
	_ps = "#particlesource" createVehicleLocal _pos;

	_ps setDropInterval 0.01;

	sleep (random 1);
	deletevehicle _ps;
	_delay = 10 + random 20;
	sleep _delay;

};
};

//--- Ash
[] spawn {

_pos = position player;
_parray = [

_snow = "#particlesource" createVehicleLocal _pos;

_snow setParticleRandom [0, [10, 10, 7], [0, 0, 0], 0, 0.01, [0, 0, 0, 0.1], 0, 0];
_snow setParticleCircle [0.0, [0, 0, 0]];
_snow setDropInterval 0.01;

_oldPlayer = vehicle player;
while {true} do {

};

If you want to know how something is done in a BIS mission (except BAF and PMC), best to open the mission pbo and drop the folder into your missions directory so you can have a look.

Lucky for you, I am making a mission with those EW campaign effect, so I just share it to you..

copy paste this into your init.sqf :

"colorCorrections" ppEffectAdjust [2, 30, 0, [0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0], [0.8*2, 0.5*2, 0.0, 0.7], [0.9, 0.9, 0.9, 0.0]];

"filmGrain" ppEffectAdjust [0.02, 1, 1, 0.1, 1, false];

//--- Wind & Dust

setwind [0.201112,0.204166,true];
while {true} do {
	_ran = ceil random 5;
	playsound format ["wind_%1",_ran];
	_obj = vehicle player;
	_pos = position _obj;

	//--- Dust
		setwind [0.201112*2,0.204166*2,false];
	_velocity = [random 10,random 10,-1];

	waituntil {vehicle player != _oldPlayer};
	_parray set [18,vehicle player];
	_snow setParticleParams _parray;
	_oldPlayer = vehicle player;
};
};

just change brown to your player name.

any other effect in EW you may want to try :

null = [] execVM "earthquake.sqf";

null = [] execVM "screen.sqf";

add earthquake every x seconds :

1. make earthquake.sqf inside your mission folder

2. paste this

earth = {
	playsound "eq";
	for "_i" from 0 to 140 do {
		_vx = vectorup _this select 0;
		_vy = vectorup _this select 1;
		_vz = vectorup _this select 2;
		_coef = 0.01 - (0.0001 * _i);
		_this setvectorup [
			_vx+(-_coef+random (2*_coef)),
			_vy+(-_coef+random (2*_coef)),
			_vz+(-_coef+random (2*_coef))
		];
		sleep (0.01 + random 0.01);
	};

};

while {true} do {
   player spawn earth;
   sleep (180 + random 60);
};

3. change sleep (180 + random 60); to whatever seconds you want

4. put null = [] execVM "earthquake.sqf"; to your init.sqf

add EW mud screen effect border :

1. paste this into your description.ext

#include "\ca\missions_EW\campaign\description_mission.hpp"

2. create screen.sqf inside your mission folder, then paste this :

screen = {

sqf = [true] spawn bis_ew_fnc_screen;

};


while {true} do {
   player spawn screen;
   sleep 5;
};

3. exec it in your init.sqf

I want to add this effect to my Dayz Epoch server. Is this possible? I think this effect is amazing and would look so good in a zombie apocalypse scenario. I did try to implement it as in the guide but the server was constantly searching for host and when I was able to join it was kicking players. I assume I need to either amend BE somehow or the files that this requires need to be written into my mission file.

Please can somebody help as searching forum's so far haven't really helped with this.
