Notice
If your mod creates machine-gun style ammo and you would like it to use a custom bullet trail effect I can add some more unused images to the bullet trails mod so that you mod can add it as a requirement and use the graphics. E.g: Purple bullet trails coming soon.

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 :(

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!)
