Easy Removal of Pollen, Floating Leaves & Grass, Fog&Clouds

Postby [N]Clinch » Wed Jul 13, 2011 8:35 pm

I have edited fx1 files to remove the following;
The crap floating all over the map (ambient grass, ambient leaves, and ambient pollen)
Ambient Fog (the stupid little patches that just sprout up everywhere)
Ambient Low Clouds (if you look hard enough in the game you can see this)
THIS DOES NOT REMOVE GRASS FROM THE GROUND, LEAVES FROM THE TREES, DUST FROM MARCHING, or ANY OTHER BATTLEFIELD SMOKE OR AMBIENCES.
These are the only things I have changed. The game looks a lot cleaner and I'm sure it will have a small performance boost on the game.
I have tested it and it is fully compatible with others who don't have it.
Simply go here---- http://www.gamefront.com/files/20548558/NTW3_FX1_v1.zip
download the file and unzip it to your desktop (if you don't have an unzipper get Jzip. Its free and great). Now go into your data folder and find NTW3_FX1v1 and delete it (put in recycling bin in case you screw up). Then install new FX1 file to your data. I have tested it and it works great. Just to be sure though, keep the original FX1 in your recycling bin for a couple days.

Performance gain definitely. I would say about 5fps more. Hopefully everyone understands there is still clouds and haze fog. I just took out the small stuff you don't really see unless u are close to it.

Yeah but I want particles on high. When I see that crap floating around it would irritate me.

I used it and I get the "impression" it has helped speed things up, ha, and I want things slower......but really, a good improvement.

I assume the Lordz will use this when they issue any future ntw3 version or patch, so everyone gets it.

The thing is, I always didn't like seeing dust being kicked up on lush green grass. I've just started setting the particles to highest to see the wonderful gun smoke but don't need dust.

Hello gents,

I dont mind the dust, but the pollen was playing havoc with my hay fever.
Downloaded fix and no more sneezing, puffy eyes and tickly throat.
Thanks to Clinch. :biggrin:

Cheers DJ :wink:

I wonder if this fix can be implemented in next patch. If so, would it work for all components (MP, SP, HB) ?

Heres a version of [N]Clinch's idea that works with v7.2
