New lightning and vortices textures
Firstly, I’m sorry I don’t have any accompanying screenshots; this sounds lame but the print screen key isn’t screenshoting like normal and I can’t be assed right now as I’d rather be flying and just share what I’m using with you.
The new ‘vortice’ texture, trail0.dds, is used by a number of things in the sim, including the black smoke from bent jet, wingtip vortices and the leading edge strake/extension and contrails. In this sense I’ve ‘hollowed’ out the middle of the original image so it gives it a more vortex appearance in sim rather than nebulous puff. This file is also used by SAMs and other missile effects - unless you alter the particle.sys to ref a different texture it’s all or nothing. Install into \Data(addon theatre if you want)\Terrdata\misctex
lghtning.dds is exactly what you think; I’ve changed the colour and ‘width’ of the image to produce a finer stroke of lightning and more electric colour. Install into Terrdata(korea, balkans etc)\weather
As always, backup in case of #IHateThisShit

If somebody could post some screens it would be nice i am far away from my PC and i would love to see how this actually looks
It’s subtle…I haven’t got any lightning screenshots yet, too quick.

It is a matter of personal preference I think. When I look at real life video I think the original BMS 4.33 ligthing and vortices look more realistic then your mod, with al respect
