PROPER Plants 1.0

Recommended Posts

=========

= Updates =

=========

* Integrated Durg's vegetation view LODs. Thanks to T_D for

  the o2 script and Durg for the permission!

* Added another version with no lowplants applied. So shaders

  still active on the vegetation.

* Added BIsign and key file for each version.

* Attached MLOD package as the permission of BI requires it.

  Please read careful the notes regarding using them.

========

= Credits =

========

Przemek_kondor to use his beautiful Autumn plants textures!

Durg for the view LOD modifications in Durg's (AI View) Vegetation Fix.

Sy and T_D for the help with the o2 scripts!

T_D for the view LOD copy o2 script!

kegetys for lowplants software to remove the shaders on the plants.

BI for the MLODs.

=========

= Features =

=========

1. Przemek kondor beautiful Autumn plants

p001.jpgp002.jpg

2. AI view is blocked by the tree/bush object (better)

Check Durg's (AI View) Vegetation Fix thread for details and screens.

3. Ability to hide in bushes

(by removing all geometry points)

p003.jpgp004.jpg

4. To run over trees without resistance with the heavy tanks

(by setting overall geometry mass to 200)

(unfortunately no 'groan' sound event possible like in OFP)

p005.jpg

That makes mowing down loads of trees again.

p006.jpg

Speed reduction still applied for smaller vehicles.

ACE Island Pack will feature separate tree models for the forest

that will slow down even heavy armor.

5. Ugly white / bright shader (OLD / GONE) removed by kegyets lowplants software.

======

= Q&A =

======

Q: o2 scripts.

A: o2scripts @ OFPEC Forum

Q: Will there be updates.

A1: Based on your feedback tweaks to tree mass.

A2: Based on your feedback tiny point in the geometry for each

bush to be able to level them down again.

A3: Yes. Another version with the highpoly 1st (and 2nd) LOD removed.

For comparison.

Without lowplants - very high shaders:

Excellent!

Sweet.

3. Ability to hide in bushes

(by removing all geometry points)

Beeing able to hide in those bigger bushes makes sneaky missions much more interesting. Would it be possible to have the same "features" on stock green coloured vegetation as well (guess that would require another pack)?

Thanks to everyone involved!

Please add some tree trunks - flying through trees and woods its now possible, moving through big bushes without any kind of natural obstacles is possible too. Could you add some little obstacles/trunks? Would be nice to have autumn & green (default) Proper plants. smile_o.gif

Are there issues with Proper Sgt.Ace Island Setting? Anyway very good idea making such compact "plants replacement"!! Better performance is always welcome - thank you Q.

Quote[/b] ]flying through trees and woods its now possible

I can confirm this for planes.

However I cannot fix this and it doesn't happen for choppers.

The only thing change for trees is that their mass is lower.

This seems to cause this strange behavior for planes.

If you rally up 10 person, who want the this addon, yet the mass

change reverted, I will add another variant. wink_o.gif

Quote[/b] ]moving through big bushes without any kind of natural obstacles is possible

Exactly. This is the intention of the addon. See:

Quote[/b] ]4. To run over trees without resistance with the heavy tanks
Quote[/b] ]Are there issues with Proper Sgt.Ace Island Setting

No. Proper Sgt.Ace Island Setting is grass and ground textures.

PROPER Plants is vegetation. smile_o.gif

Quote[/b] ]Could you add some little obstacles/trunks?

For trees? No. As they are still there. wink_o.gif

For bushes. Maybe, yet its rather unlikely.

Quote[/b] ] Would be nice to have autumn & green (default) Proper plants.

Not sure what you mean. Yet there will be variants with all

the changes but the autumn textures.

Thanks for the report KeyCat!

I haven't expect these as all models are binarized again.

Double checked that. Models are not modified. So these are

problems in the BI models.

Maybe some modeler is willing to fix these.

Seems only to be a handful and simple stuff.  smile_o.gif

Added the both versions with standard (normal green) color to the first post.  xmas_o.gif

Thanks for the mirrors!

I am using the autum lowplants vesion and the ability to hide in bushes without being shot at is far better than the combined Kegs lowplants with Durgs vegitation fix i have installed by following the instructions at the beginning of durgs thread. I would like to download the propper plants standard textures with lowplants from the above link but get the message "the connection with OAC sever has been reset" Or somthing along those lines. Is their another link to it? And am i right in saying the autum plants conceal the player better that durgs vegitation fix combined with lowplants which i installed myself from Durgs thread? Or is it just my imagination. Excellent mod by the way thank's

PROPER plants include lowplants and Durg's view lods as stated,

so i don't get what you mean. crazy_o.gif

Thanks for making two variants autumn and spring/summer! Isnt it possible to make some kind of trunks in the middle of bushes? Looks a bit funny if guys are able to run through not slowed down.

while it would be possible, the effect would be different.

like you could mow down again a bush and you have some

object blocking/altering your movement a bit.

however i am not aware how to slow down someones movement.

What i mean is your Autum plants seem to work much better at concealing the player from ai than the way i have done it in the past by following the instructions of how to get kegs lowplants to work with Durgs vegitation fix in this topicClick Then scroll down to the part were it says"To make this mod work with Kegety's LowPlants"

Just tried downloading the PROPER_plants_standard_textures_with_lowplants again and this is the message i get-"Internet Explorer cannot download...th.lowplants_2008_12_06.7z from oac_quest_link.net the connection with the server was reset"

Are you sure the link is working for you? It does start to download but after 3 seconds that message appears

Not sure if you are correct.

However Durg gave more a more updated version from what he

released he told me. So maybe it does influence that.

one question, as the plants are now easily overrun by tanks,are they easily destructable by artillery and handgrenades as well?
