Tired of sources ugly bullet impacts? Tired of 50cal rounds hitting the ground and causing a piece of dust to fall off? Tired of not getting excited EVERY time you shoot a piece of metal? Most of all, are you tired of having all these extra frames per second? Then look no further! http://a.pomf.se/vwnfot.webm http://a.pomf.se/hntgbc.webm http://a.pomf.se/rasqvk.webm Installation instructions: 1) Download: http://a.pomf.se/amvbdb.rar 2) Extract files to empires/particles 3) Add to autoexec.cfg (empires/cfg) the line: cl_new_impact_effects 1 You can disable the particles again by removing that line from the autoexec.cfg FAQ They make my FPS drop! That's not a question. They make your FPS drop because they're overdesigned as fuck to look as ridiculously over the top and pretty as possible, if you can't run them smoothly turn them off. Why do they block vision? I was inspired by FEARs bullet impacts, which after a gunfight settles down leave the area full of smoke for almost a minute. The impacts are also really fucking big just because it's cooler that way, they look awesome. Why are you releasing these now? These cause the game to crash. Okay now I've got your attention, they used to cause the game to crash, as soon as the map changed they would cause your empires to die, for some reason they aren't doing it any more, my money is on Candles. Anyway, as far as I know they are stable in the current version of empires, but if you notice your game crashing shitloads, then you might want to disable these.
