  1. zzzspace v2.0 REAL SOUND for DCS World

    This is a complete stand-alone soundpack and a comprehensive sound modification which provides sound within all DCS World modules - including DCS FC3. (187mb)
     
    It installs via the ModMan v7.3 utility, as modified for use within DCS World by Tom Weiss, which is available from LockOnFiles (links are below).
     
     
    DESCRIPTION:
     
    In short; if you have seen videos of jets flying through Mach Loop in the UK, that is basically what this high sonic realism sound modification sounds like.
     
    There are few areas that were not reviewed and altered within this new version. I've changed or improved many sounds within this new version and greatly developed the sound imaging quality. These have collectively enabled a more compelling sound environment to be constructed. Areas previously not worked on much have been within v2.0. All helicopters have been bought up to the standards of the jets, with more realistic approaches, flybys and loitering. Armour and vehicle sounds have all been replaced, and re-configured. All weapons, explosions and damage sounds have likewise been reviewed, with numerous improvements, resulting in a much improved and extended ground-battle environment. Given this sim will increasingly become fastjet dominated the cockpits have all been reviewed for both A-10C and FC3 fast jets plus associated external mechanical control sounds reset accordingly for optimising to various flight modes.
     
    What I'm doing within this sound mod has never been achieved prior. It's the first example of where it's possible to comprehensively depict a real exterior jet sound with 100% pitch accuracy within samples, plus realistic audio fidelity with distance and aspect changes. The result is a very realistic and compelling modification that is no gimmick. What you hear in this mod is the real thing--real jet sound--in playback. I developed the means for a sound engine like DCS World to portray real jet sound with almost complete accuracy, in most situations. This has not been heard by anyone from a combat jet flight sim prior to this sound modification doing it.
     
    I developed the theory and base equations behind how this approach could be made to work during 2000 and 2001. But DCS World was the first sim sound-engine where I suspected it might contain the necessary acoustic model accuracy and modding accessibility needed to finally try to make this work accurately. After some testing it became clear the technique would indeed work in DCS World and would accurately correct for vector changes to Doppler shift, which normally distorts real jet sounds. In this sound pack for the first time they're not being distorted in pitch at all. They utilise the pitch within the real sound files exactly and accurately.
     
    The practical result for the sound that the jets make within the sim is that it creates unprecedented and outstanding sound depictions that are almost too good to be true. So the tedious work of enabling and developing the approach and establishing that it does work has been done. The result is a dramatically improved audio simulation, that now has unlimited and unprecedented realism potential from here.
     
    It's been my long-term goal to eventually get to this level of jet-fighter audio simulated realism, so it's gratifying to have finally gotten there.
     
    A thankyou to Keshman for donation of sounds I've integrated to greatly improve this version's ground-battle detail and especially battle ambience effects.
     
     
    INSTALLING:
     
    Install to DCS World using SkyPat's "ModMan" utility's normal ModMan installation procedure.
     
    Find ModMan v7.3 here:
    http://www.lockonfil...ndex.php/files/
     
    Find a 'patch' for its use within DCS World here:
    http://www.lockonfil...ka-50-v2-patch/
     
     
    INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
     
    (1) Install ModMan v7.3 then extract and copy the patch's files into this folder:
     
    C:\ModMan
     
     
    (2) Place the soundpack's zip file called:
     
     
    "zzzspace v2.0 REAL SOUND for DCS World.zip"
     
    Into the folder named:
     
    C:\ModMan\addons_DCS World\
     
     
    (3) Open ModMan then go into the "Mods Installer" window and select and install this mod's zip file.
     
     
    (4) Exit ModMan
     
    --> go to DCS World's main screen

  3. Realistic Sun by Peter P

    Realistic Sun 1.2.1
    This version includes Mustang's Sky.FX for a better lightning and has a fine-tuned Rays.tga.
     
    It also includes the template I used to create the Rays.tga
     
     
    Instruction:
     
    Copy the 'Bazar' folder into your DCS World installation and allow to overwrite.
     
    Example path :
    C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World
     
    Backup files are provided in 'original file DCS 1.2.0 sun'.
     
     
    Before/after video:
     


     
    All intensive test where made with HDR "Normal" and 1920x1080 16:9
     
    - if is this isn't working like on the video for you
    and you want to change the point when the darkening of the HDR kicks in:
     
    open
     
    \Eagle Dynamics\DCS World\Bazar\shaders\sky\
     
    skyQuad.fx
     
    and change in line #49 the "300.0".
     
    to a smaller value = later HDR
    or greater value = sooner HDR
     
    use steps of 10.0 and make a test in-game
    -than fine-tune it.
     
    Keep in mind that it the HDR effect highly depends of your used FOV (Zoom) and how dark the actual scene is.
     
     
    Higher the FOV in the external views to take screen-shots with full sun.
    >>> R-Ctrl+NumPad/ <<<
     
     
     
    Please provide Feedback in this thread:
    http://forums.eagle....362#post1526362
     
     
     
    Many thanks to Mustang for showing me the right place to search for a fix!

  4. Post Processing (HDR) Filter for Flaming Cliffs 2.0-Boris Vorontsov

    Post-Processing Filtering for Lock On Modern Air Combat (Flaming Cliffs 1 & 2) *

    You can alter the amount of sharpening by opening effect.txt with a text editor and edit value "float SharpeningAmount=3.0;"
     
    I changed Shift Key Modifier to Application key (located between the right Windows and Ctrl keys on most keyboards) so you can activate/deactivate the mod in game with App+F12 since Shift+F12 is a stock FC2 command

  15. Enhanced Structures for Flaming Cliffs

    The buildings and ground objects are now sharper, detailed and more realistic looking. You will not take an fps hit with this mod, all files are the same size as the originals. Install using ModMan, the files replace existing files so there is no modification to the graphics.cfg file. When this mod is installed, it will show as "yellow" in ModMan.
     
    The file will be available on Lockonfiles as soon as Thomas ok's the upload. CombatAce will have it as well.

  16. Enhanced Autumn, Winter, Spring Terrain

    I've created this terrain to supplement the terrain that Grandsurf and Rocky put together called LockOn Reloaded. They created the summer terrain, I've "finished" the project (so to speak) and put together autumn, spring and winter terrain. I was given permission to use some of the textures from Reloaded to modify and include in my terrain pack. I hope ya'll enjoy the fruits of my labor, this terrain represents a couple of weeks of hard work and little sleep. Thanks to the beta testers for all their help.
     
    You must install this mod with the newest version of ModMan
