BD Tracer Lights

Big Dawg KS

This fairly simple addon adds appropriately colored light sources to tracers to enhance night combat. The color and
intensity of the light is determined by the config properties of the ammunition. This addon also works with the NVG
only tracers on the light machineguns; these tracers emit a very dim light that is barely visible, but can be clearly
seen through night vision.

Configuring Tracer Lights:
BD Tracer Lights use only the default tracer-related config tokens. The only thing to note is that the color of the
light is defined by the 'tracerColor[]' property, which is otherwise not used. Because of this, the addon also contains
a config that corrects the tracerColor for all BIS ammo with tracers.

The effects of this addon are client-side only. It requires no installation on the server, but only clients with the
addon installed can see the effects.

As we always recommend use modfolders to seperate the custom content from the official game content to prevent problems.
For different ways to set up your modfolders and use them please visit our FAQ.

These are signed addons, serveradmins can download the serverkey from here.
