I agree, this looks great.  It is the closest I've seen a thruster glow resemble the one in the actual show.  Keep up the good work. :yes:

Wierd.. in the other thread you talk about wanting to add more detail than was present in the show to the 10mm gun - something that was basically a blob, yet here you want to replace my more detailed thruster glows with a much simpler radial gradient.

It had some "star" effects in it, but they are too transparent to see...

Ah, sorry..

I change my statement to "something that looks like a much simpler radial gradient" then.

While I didn't quite agree with Deepblue regarding weapons effects, I do think those thrusters effects look a bit better in-game than older R2 ones.

One more update (Made set 1, set 2, and set 3 thrusters more interesting and closer to show. I also made thrusters for the Omega [you can assign thrusters in the ship table I believe]).
Click the link at the top or this one.

It is not possible to assign thrusters in ships.tbl. There can be only three, one for each original species.
Unless this has been changed in fa2_open and I am not aware of it?

I just noticed while trying out those new thrusters that with some models thruster glow is not properly centered.

For example Thunderbolt seems to be fine but Aurora and Badger thruster glows are slightly off. Perhaps that was designed with old effect in mind because this is the first time I ever noticed that.

I fixed that (I thought) in my updated aurora at the top of the thread.

We prefer team members fixing bugs in our own models, just in case. :)

Oh yeah, and the old effect was slightly off center so that could be why.

You just noticed that?  Haven't you ever used SCP's cool chase cam view?  It's readily apparent there.

With old thruster effect, no I didn't notice it.

You're probably safe using Deepblue's Aurora. Fixing the thruster glow error involves changing about 4 numbers in PCS. E1 though, would be able to recreate the work, in a nanosecond.
Be warned: This site's admins stole 100s of hours of my work. They will do it to you.

Uh, forget my aurora, modelview didnt save my adjustments and I dont have PCS so go ahead and do it yourselves.

NM, forget that, the changes were saved.

EDIT: I hope you have a better aurora in the works... ;7

Nice thrusters (and beutiful framerates ;))
