Since you have more experience with it, could you say, where which textures are used ingame? Because I want to give it a try and modify it. I already found a texture for burning houses in Novigrad area for hearts of stone (smoke_tileable.tga), but I need to know for exemple, which textures appear in the frozen village, or the burning stables. And how to increase the particles. Maybe you can help me with that ?

When I give the smoke file the priority over compilation the smoke will look like it's from a cartoon.

I wonder if replacing those 2 remaining files with one of the files from this mod would make the effect similar both close and far away? I would rename the effect file from this mod to mirror the effect from the remaining vanilla files.

I originally wanted to improve upon it, but really haven't had any time for modding this last couple of months.
About your comment on smoke further away looking different: actually I removed the lower quality LODs entirely and only left LOD0 (highest quality) and at the same time increased the drawing distance of that. So, there should be no change from a distance, except if maximum distance is reached and the smoke doesn't render at all any more.
You are correct though, that there are more smoke particle files that I did not modify and which theoretically might be used by (a small number of) chimneys for displaying smoke from an even greater distance.
I obviously didn't check all the chimneys in the game, so those might have slipped past me. Could you maybe provide some screenshots? If I can improve that, I might do so some time in the future .
