First you need to grab m!m's particle script from here and follow it's directions. He set it up as a mod but you can add the folders to any mod you want provided you have a particles.cfg file made for that mod.
Or you create it by yourself.
"Ka-BOOOOOOOOM!!!!"
"Uh, Sir we can hear the explosion."
"No you can't, there is no air in space. Sound can't travel through a vacuum!"

Thanks for the pointer. Since I already have a mod folder for the post-processing made for WoD, I'll stick those files in there too.

Dear Diary:
How many times am I going to edit this damn ship?
What ship? The Challenger.
This was the second ship I've modelled and the first capital ship I ever did. And even though I've wanted to get rid of it on so many occasions (its a pain to fred with), I don't want to break Axem's heart. So instead this ship has seen half a dozend of revisions. While the main hull mesh has remained largely its low poly old self (though there has been a few subtle changes between the Chal I and II). It has been updated in several ways (seam removal, small collision errors removed, added debris) and now most recently it received new turrets (from Trashman's recent model dump)



I never wanna touch this ship again...
Urutorahappī!!

More than once I've thought about making a higher poly Challenger, but every time I've thought of it, I've heard...sounds of a flamethrower and muffled sounds of anger and rage and become scared.

Oh no, he's after me! :nervous:

Spend some time giving a sweeper a lot of debris for a 'shattering' effect
Realize ingame that it just produces a lot of flames on hardly visible pieces.

an other lesson learned :p

If you use the particle script and disable MVPs flame script, you could keep debris flames (now customizable), while getting the shattering effect.

What gas do Fura'ngle breate (assuming those living rocks breathe at all)?
Because that might be a good explenation for why they spew less flames on exploding, that they have a less flamable/non flamabe gas (or no gas at all) inside their ships and thus less/nothing to feed the flames.

Actually, their ships are solid crystal. They don't breathe.

Aye, they don't breath.

Anyway, keeping the mvp flame script because doing things otherwise for every ship is just too damn much work to make it worth it.

Not really, you can set an entry as "default" and have it trigger on every ship that doesn't have a specific debris trail set.
Never underestimate m!m's scripts.  :)

This post is dedicated to singing praises to Sab0o. He's responsible for texturing the Ascension and has recently reworked the skins on the Zy capital ships. Making me look like a total noob (again!). Imagine that, it's almost like WoD is going to have standards! This also prompted me to put on better looking turrets on these ships.


Before and After.


So yeah, Sab0o is a total baller and all that.
(I can't actually sing that well, so you're just gonna have to imagine that part yourselves)

Is Sab0o going to retexture every ship in WoD? Totally wouldn't be against that. :D
