I've checked and the download is working right now. There are two versions on the mod portal (v0.1.1 and v0.1.2), can you download either of them? There might have been a temporary issue with the mod portal.

Failed to load mods: __bullet-trails__/data-updates.lua:3: attempt to index local 'ammo' (a nil value)
Something didn't go well with the newest update. I can't even start the game without disabling this mod :(

That should be fixed now.

ok, this mod is so simple (at least in terms of in-game complexity - i have no idea how much pain it caused you, hehe) yet has such a dramatic improvement to combat. I didn't think it would make that much difference but I can actually see my tank targeting spawners etc instead of just random sparks at the barrel, and greatly increased enjoyment as a result. And when I finally got uranium ammo.... oh yes.

It is also so vanilla in taste. I hope they add something like it so everyone can enjoy...

Thanks :mrgreen:

Can confirm, bullet trails be gone in 0.15.22+. It appears to be due to this change:
- Fixed source_effects applying effects to the source by the target instead of to the source by the source. (49634)
As such, replacing all instances of source_effects in data-updates.lua with target_effects will fix the mod.

+++EDIT

After a closer look, the animation appears off, the line jumping, then drifting immediately after firing.
Turns out you set the animation's width as 5 and frame count as 6, but visually the width should be 7 and the count 5.

The effect is also playing backwards. (well, forwards but the sprites are upside down)
You can either add 'run_mode = "backwards"' or flip the sprites.

In somewhat related matters, the effect ISN'T played backwards by AAI programmable vehicles - because that mod reverses target/source either way (add a nice explosion effect to your laser tank cannon? it now appears ON THE TANK!)
