Restoring grass shadows

Hi all!

I read somewhere that some russian forum has a patch for SoC restoring the grass shadows that where disabled by the devs in any patch past 1.0003 - but I didn't find any DL link

You know, after having patches for denser grass and extended grass radius (draw distance), shadows is now the last thing missing on the grass.

Anybody who knows something 'bout this?

I believe this is it for 1.0006 patch only:

Thanks! Any chance there exists a port to 1.0005 somewhere?

If the russian modders will be so kind to port it to another patches... maybe.
Although on code.google.com there is the source code part, i still don't have enough knowledge to port this code to 1.0005.

The russians seems to hack the 1.0006 engine recently, because there is an 1.0006 developer version with pdb files from SOC engine, which can be disassembled with better results:

It would probably be easier to just "upgrade" to the 1.0006 patch for this mod than to hope for a port to 1.0005, considering... the issues with 1.0006 were all MP-related, I believe.

Of course, now that I've typed all that out, that would probably cause some issues with any other patch/mod you've got installed...

Hi,

The grass shadow is popping up like the grass used to do itself and it's as twice as annoying

Is there way to fix that?

Yep, you have to increase the grass rendering distance too, the default 49 metres is too close. If your rig can handle it, patch up the distance to 100-200 meters.

I hope you can patch the grass shadow xrrender_r2.dll what i posted above with this grass distance patcher pack:

Sorry, but that's absolutely wrong. I don't know why people keep stating that 1.0006 concerns MP only. Do you just believe what the devs said?

Fact is, there are many mods that won't work properly anymore under 1.0006 - I've tested it with some of my own mods, believe me!

R2_sun_near affects the distance of the grass shadows, if I remember correctly.

"Issues" as in the reason the patch was recalled was what I was referring to.
