Description:
Solus has released 1.08 of his excellent SLX mod. This is a stand alone pack and previous versions of SLX should be removed to ensure there are no errors. This brand new installment does not add much except from some tweaking to the config to make things act more realisticly and fix slowdowns. In addition Solus ahs added some extra mod configs so you can enjoy SLX with one of your favourite mods such as VTE.

Quote:
Changes:
Added VTE+JAM config with supersonic bullet sounds, GL3, and SLX wounds with vietnamese shouting.
Added grass islands to WGL config.
Changed "AimPrecision" values in config for easier shooting.
Changed stamina loss values in animations for slight stamina loss while performing most regular movement for more trembling after moving around, running is slightly tiring, crouch running is more tiring, rolling is very tiring. Diving to the ground is extremely tiring.
Changed dexterity on weapons for more momentum on machine guns and sniper rifles.
Added AT weapon standing and lying prone stances. Made more speeds for AT weapon movement.
Added lowered rifle stance. Thanks to DanAK47 for the idea!
Added faster movement modes for safe and civil stances.
Made radio voices an option in configs. Thanks to WGL for the example!
Made grass islands optional in configs.
Re enabled lock on ability for vehicles. Vehicles without an actual radar cannot see targets on the radar screen, it is only there for the fire control systems lock on ability.
Copied skies to sky folder so users can delete the ones in NewData if they want to use the originals.
Switched tracer colors for sides.
Special Forces soldiers are more stealthy.
Added dive slide back in and enabled by default. Thanks to itweas_LLU for letting his ninja addon be used!
Fixed CoC DKM M46 shell fly and hit sounds.
Fixed WGL hand grenade explosion sound for default BIS grenades.
Tonal config has Tonal SF units with GL3 and SLX Wounds effects.
Updated various SLX addons with minor changes.
Updated SLX_GL3.pbo to version 1.04:
Many small changes to various things.
Fixed slowdown on fuel leak script.
Suppressive fire makes units getting shot at go prone and lowers their stamina which makes their aim become more shaky. Lower skilled units suffer more stamina loss.

To install the 1.08 version:
It's a full stand alone release, so you might want to rename or delete your old @SLX folder if there are any problems and do a clean install of it, but it shouldn't hurt to just extract it over the old one if you want to.


Check SLX 1.07 for a more in depth description.

Readme File:
SLX OFP Replacement Pack
Version 1.08

The pack adds new effects and replaces default content with different versions. The pack replaces buildings, foliage, cloudlets, skies, moon, sun, light flare, muzzle flashes, atmosphereic lights, and various other objects. Most replacements are things from Resistance, some are just copies of stuff in Flashpoint, others are modified or made from scratch. Most buildings are replaced with entereable ones. Some of the bushes and grass in the replacement pack use a technique that works as concealment. It can be shot and walked through, but AI's cannot see through it. The islands Everon and Malden with SLX Grass replacing some bushes and grass is included and used in the config.cpp. The included config.cpp uses different cloudlet effects to make use of the new cloudlets. It also has a supersonic bullet crack sound and includes GroupLink 3 effects for all units which include the SLX Wounds effects. For more about GroupLink 3 and SLX Wounds read the relevant readme files. Also includes various gameplay changes and Sanctuary's DMA UNIGEN animation pack with the DMA leaning and rolling mod. Includes vehicles with get in animations, with units opening doors climbing in and then closing the doors, and opening and closing the doors to get out.

Other mods:
The replacement parts should work with any mod. New effects have to be added to other mods manually. Some modified configs with the new effects are included in the configs folder. The default included config is commented with modifications and additions that can be copied to other configs.


Features:

SLX Mod bin\Config.cpp changes:

CfgCloudlet effects:
The cloudlet effects are all based on videos and photographs of their real life counterparts.

The explosion effects follow the basic descriptions of an explosion written in "U.S. Army Field Manual 3-50 Smoke Operations | Appendix G : Munition-Produced Dust"(http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/library/policy/army/fm/3-50/Appg.htm), the dust/fire ball, the dust skirt, the rising column of smoke, and some small lingering smoke. They are also based on videos of explosions of laser guided bombs, explosive ordinance disposal, hand grenades, aerial rockets and missiles, and improvised explosive devices. The fireball is usually very brief being usually a bright flash then mostly dust, but sometimes has a lot of fire. The dust skirt comes quickly after the dust/fire ball, it lingers for a while after the explosion before disipating. For larger explosions it spreads out over a large area but for smaller explosions it is just a single cloud and looks fairly good for the low fast appearing smoke from hand grenades. The smoke column rises after the explosion and dust skirt and drifts away in the wind, it is usually light grey and sometimes darker. Then a thin low smoke lingers near the crater.

The unguided rocket smoke is based on a videos of helicopters firing rockets, it starts off dark black and then thins out turning grey.

The guided missile smoke is based on pictures and videos of TOW missiles firing, a thin grey smoke that can be seen through, especially since some missiles are gunner controlled.

The water hit effect is based on videos and pictures of bullets hitting water, a thin plume of water.

The blood effect is based on videos of people getting shot, a small, thin, white, pink, or red vapour puff that sometimes lingers for a second.

The cfgCloudlets section can be copied directly over any other mod's config.cpp cfgCloudlets and should work fine. The same can be done for the WeaponGunClouds which are based on many videos of rifles and machine guns firing. Also, apparently due to the way OFP works the dust skirt and gun smoke blow in the opposite direction of the wind but the rest blow in the right direction.


SLX_Cloud.pbo:
Contains cloudlet models that can be used with the drop command or in a config. Read more about it in the readme.

Particles:
CloudySmoke.p3d (cl_basic) : Thick curling clouds of dust/smoke.
Explosion.p3d : Exploding into the air.
ExplosionDust.p3d : Dust flying into the air.
ExplosionDirt.p3d : Dirt being thrown into the air.
Fire.p3d (cl_fire,cl_fired) : Flames.
FlatSmoke.p3d (cl_water) : Flat colored smoke, has soft edges and spins. White colored, and can be recolored well.
WaterHit.p3d : Small thin plume from a bullet striking water.
WaterSplash.p3d : Wide water splash from something large hitting/crashing into water.


Concealment models and SLX_Grass.pbo:
If you are a modeler and are interested in making concealment models, you can take a look at the included MLOD grass(SLX_Grass.p3d in SLX_Grass.pbo and "ker trs travy.p3d" in the NewData folder) to see how it's done. The important parts are:
Geometry LOD: Geometry where visibility should be blocked and have zero weight.
View Geometry LOD: Shape matches Geometry LOD.


Bayonets, melee weapons, and SLX_Melee.pbo:
All basic rifles have bayonets that can be used just by switching to them by changing the firing mode. Group Link 3 also gives armed units an always selectable "Hand-to-Hand" ability, and an item slot bayonet knife for each side(M9 bayonet knife for west and AK74 bayonet knife for east and resistance) that can be used as a knife, and for east soldiers, an item slot entrenching shovel. Item slot weapons can be used the same as the bayonets. Bayonets and item slot melee weapons should be used with the Group Link 3 shot effects active to make sure the "shots" don't fly too far. AI units are fairly effective with all melee weapons. Also, tanks and APC's are equipped with shovels and axes that can be taken from the vehicle and used.


Gameplay changes:
Higher AI rates of fire at longer ranges, higher man class armor for more wounding while still being easily killed, smaller grenades for more capacity, many changes to missiles to make them work with manual control smoke, vehicles don't deform when they are destroyed, spent casings stay around, less accurate aiming precision, no radar on tanks or APC's, ammo counter removed(only number of magazines or last bullets shown), and many more all listed with comments in the config.cpp.



To install the SLX Replacement Pack:
Copy the @SLX folder to your OFP directory where your FlashPointResistance.exe is located. Then run the Install .bat file in the new @SLX folder. Then you can run OFP with "-mod=@SLX" in the command line. Be sure you have at least 400MB free space on your disk before running the install.bat.

To install updates:
Extract the update content on top of the existing content, then use the installer.

To install mod configs:
First backup the other mod's original config.bin or config.cpp in their bin folder, then copy the SLX config to their bin folder and then run OFP with -mod @SLX;Mod

To edit the shortcut command line:
Find or make a shorcut to OFP and right click it then select properties. Find the line that says "Target:" and has something like this:
"C:\Program Files\Operation Flashpoint\FLASHPOINTRESISTANCE.EXE"

Then add -mod=@SLX on the end so it looks like this:
"C:\Program Files\Operation Flashpoint\FLASHPOINTRESISTANCE.EXE" -mod=@SLX

Remember to keep the quotation marks in the same position. Then click apply and OK. You can also run other mods and disable the spash screen like this:

"C:\Program Files\Operation Flashpoint\FLASHPOINTRESISTANCE.EXE" -nosplash -mod=@ECP;@COC;@SLX

Also remember that content in mods listed after the first mod will be used over the previous ones, so other installed replacement packs or configs cannot be used together. To use other replacement packs with the SLX replacement pack you could copy their content that you want to use into the NewData folder then run the Install .bat again. If you want to revert back to the default SLX replacement content, just extract the original content from the archive into your NewData folder and run the Install .bat.



To use Tonal Redux config, Tonal GL3, and SLX Wounds:
Copy the @SLX\Mod configs\@TonalRedux\bin\ folder to the @TonalRedux mod folder. Then in @SLX\SLX_GL3_Settings.sqf uncomment the Tonal GL3 and SLX Wounds paths. Make sure you comment out the paths before using another mod though.





Using SLX mod effects with other mods:
The cloudlets and other effects are very easy to add to any other mod's config.cpp. To do it just open up the @SLX\bin\config.cpp and copy the relevant sections you want to use. To use the new cloudlet effects in another config copy cfgCloudlets, WeaponCloudsGun, and WeaponCloudsMGun over the other config's matching sections.

To use the GL3 and SLX Wounds effects just add the init event handler to the AllVehicles class of the mod, and any other init event handlers for other units. Here's how it looks in the default config:

class AllVehicles:All
{
icon="unknown_move";
// SLX ADD : Event handler for GL3.
class EventHandlers
{
Init="_this exec {\SLX_GL3\SLX_Init_GL3.sqs};";
};
// SLX ADD : Vehicles don't get funky vertex deformed on destruction anymore.
destrType=DestructMan;
};

And for something that already has init event handlers like ECP or FFUR just add that little line on the end like this example from the included WGL config:

init = "_this exec{\wglevents\wglinit.sqs}; if(format[{%1},wgl_On] == {scalar bool array string 0xfcffffef}) then { _this call loadfile {\wgl_zm\wgl_zinit.sqf};}; _this call loadfile {\wgl_zm\men\men_init.sqf}; VBS_AAR_path={\}; VBS_core_path={\}; VBS_OBS_path={\}; VBS_VESL_path={\}; VBS_init=nil; VBS_trig=nil; _this exec {\SLX_GL3\SLX_Init_GL3.sqs};";

So basically just add "_this exec {\SLX_GL3\SLX_Init_GL3.sqs}" to an init event handler and you're good to go. Also be sure that all classes that inherit from the AllVehicles class either don't have an init event handler so they inherit it from the AllVehicles class or have the GL3 init added to their init line. Also you need to add the SLX section from PreLoadAddons and PreLoadBanks to the mod's config, look at the end of the default SLX mod config to see how it's done.
