Car water spray in rain
Hi, i want to make mod where water spray (which car causing driving through rain) is much bigger than standard in game, so im looking for a file where i can tweak size of the spray, i dont know where to look, maybe this should be done in textures? If anyone know where i can find these values, please post a path or any directions. Also i know that there is mod called heavy rain that adds more rain to game but water spray stays the same as original, thanks for any advice
It can now be opened & extracted using OpenIV (Ctrl+S when file is highlighted in OpenIV or right-click the file & select 'Extract to META/XML (.xml)').
There are 2 locations for the file:
Note: You can search for 'vfxvehicleinfo.ymt' in OpenIV using Ctrl+F3 (Also 'Tools' tab> 'Search')
Edit the one in update.rpf (Only edit the one in x64a.rpf if you do NOT have one in update.rpf).
Note: When putting the edited file back using OpenIV don't change the '.ymt.xml' file extension just drag & drop it as is & OpenIV will convert it to a .ymt on it's own
In 'vfxvehicleinfo.ymt' there are various item types. You will be mostly interested in:
<Item type="CVfxVehicleInfo" key="VFXVEHICLEINFO_CAR_GENERIC">
<Item type="CVfxVehicleInfo" key="VFXVEHICLEINFO_CAR_BULLET">
<Item type="CVfxVehicleInfo" key="VFXVEHICLEINFO_CAR_ELECTRIC">
<Item type="CVfxVehicleInfo" key="VFXVEHICLEINFO_CAR_HOTKNIFE">
There are others for forklift, golf car, motorbikes, trains, trucks etc
Under these headings (right at the very bottom of each) are these settings:
<splashInPtFxEnabled value="true"/> <splashInPtFxRange value="100.00000000"/> <splashInPtFxName>water_splash_veh_in</splashInPtFxName> <splashInPtFxSizeEvoMax value="9.00000000"/> <splashInPtFxSpeedDownwardThresh value="2.00000000"/> <splashInPtFxSpeedLateralEvoMin value="2.00000000"/> <splashInPtFxSpeedLateralEvoMax value="18.00000000"/> <splashInPtFxSpeedDownwardEvoMin value="2.50000000"/> <splashInPtFxSpeedDownwardEvoMax value="18.00000000"/> <splashOutPtFxEnabled value="true"/> <splashOutPtFxRange value="50.00000000"/> <splashOutPtFxName>water_splash_veh_out</splashOutPtFxName> <splashOutPtFxSizeEvoMax value="9.00000000"/> <splashOutPtFxSpeedLateralEvoMin value="0.00000000"/> <splashOutPtFxSpeedLateralEvoMax value="2.00000000"/> <splashOutPtFxSpeedUpwardEvoMin value="0.00000000"/> <splashOutPtFxSpeedUpwardEvoMax value="2.00000000"/> <splashWadePtFxEnabled value="true"/> <splashWadePtFxRange value="50.00000000"/> <splashWadePtFxName>water_splash_veh_wade</splashWadePtFxName> <splashWadePtFxSizeEvoMax value="9.00000000"/> <splashWadePtFxSpeedVehicleEvoMin value="4.00000000"/> <splashWadePtFxSpeedVehicleEvoMax value="15.00000000"/> <splashWadePtFxSpeedRiverEvoMin value="0.00000000"/> <splashWadePtFxSpeedRiverEvoMax value="15.00000000"/> <splashTrailPtFxEnabled value="true"/> <splashTrailPtFxRange value="50.00000000"/> <splashTrailPtFxName>water_splash_veh_trail</splashTrailPtFxName> <splashTrailPtFxSizeEvoMax value="9.00000000"/> <splashTrailPtFxSpeedEvoMin value="0.50000000"/> <splashTrailPtFxSpeedEvoMax value="90.00000000"/>
I haven't edited any of them yet but I'm pretty sure this is what you are looking for. Make a backup of the original file before you start & you will then be free to mess about with the settings to see what each of them do in-game. Best of luck.
@JonaQ WOW, thank you very much for this detailed answer, i will give a try and ill play a bit with these values, from their values names, im guessing that is what im looking for, but anyway, very professional answer, thanks again!
