Hi!

There have been loads of requests how to adjust the smoke in AoB. It's easy to mod, just follow these steps:

1. Open the folder of the Age of Blackpowder mod you are using and find particle_systems.txt.

2. Open that .txt file and look for these entries (it's possible the entries have other numbers in your file, this is an example);

psys_pistol_smoke 512 prtcl_dust_a  50 15.000000 0.600000 0.000000 60.000000 1.500000

The numbers I indicated in bold are the ones that define the thickness of the smoke.

3. Lower these numbers and see what happens/test in game (replacing with 0 doesn't work, 1 is the lowest value to enter).

Hope it helps and have fun! :smile:

I reduced bot to about 1/3rd and one shot doesn't cause so much slowdown anymore. I expect big battles still will, but earlier I couldn't navigate due to lag
