FYI - I've been working on new weapon effects for fs1 weapons for about a month now, on and off. Don't step on my toes.:D

I especially like the Akheton, it reminds me of the microwave cannon from Descent 3.

I agree, Shivans need missiles that don't look Terran. Maybe Vasudans could have some of their own missiles as well?

The Ancients missile from Inferno might make a good Vasudan missile when retextured.

Yes there will be. I already have lots of em in testing phase.

The Qutrob Swarm missiles, the Iblis heat seekers and the Lamassu heavy torpedo. I'll also add dumbfires, bombs and the whole lot. There will be more primary weapons, too. And they're all pretty shivan and unique.

But first, I will finish those FS2 weapon effects.

@woolie: My mekhu doesnt look like a kayser in the slightest. At least not to me :doubt:

"My mekhu doesnt look like a kayser in the slightest."
yes it does, it looks like a under powered kayser

you should try to change the aperence of the weapons als little as posable or you'r going to have people complaining, remember the meku and subach are basicly the exact same weapon, one is just set to fire faster/weaker shots, there is no reaosn why they should have dramaticly diferent looks, and the reason why the subach turned blue as it got further away is becase blue is a cool color, our minds assosiate dark blue with cold.
so as you make updates to the graphics, just remember how cool all those movies were the 'improoved' everything, like starwars, and ET

My intention however, is not to update, i've done that with my 32-bit pack. My intention is to make things more unique and give them a fresh, new feel. Those who don't like them can always go on using the old effects :)

My mekhu (although it's not clearly visible in those screenies) looks exactly like my Subach. The only thing that changed is the hue range of the colour swap. While the subach has been kept in original colours the mekhu has been altered to use colours of lower energy. It's blasts are weaker. That's why :)

The kayser is completely different though. It's using a completely different base bitmap and colours to start off. And it'll look even 'more different' as soon as i'm updating it.

I think you should try to keep the origonal feel of the origonal weapons though, you can freshen them up without makeing them all look all totaly diferent

yes they're pretty similar. I wont have the prometheus fire purple fluffy clouds all outta sudden. However, two weapons looking exactly the same doesn't kinda appeal me. Maybe i'll turn down the difference in hue, but I certainly wont have them look the same.

I dont think that would be a bright idea :)

I prefer altering the hue, creates more... variety ;)

Hmm, well I like the new colour of the Subach, but it seems somehow a lot smaller and doesn't have the same feel. The new Akheton is good though.

Yep I have changed the Subach's and Mekhu's size and shape.

It takes a bit getting used to the change, but I kinda prefer the effect :)

well the thing is they are the _same weapon_ the only diference is a few settings on timeing and maybe diferent capasitors, there shouldn't be too much of a diference between them, the rest of the weapons as long as they're generaly the same color it's fine, but subach and mekhu should be very very similar if not identical, becase they're basicly the same weapon

You could also rip Inferno off and have the Mekhu turn from red to yellow and the Subach turn from red to blue as usual. I always thought the Mekhu HL-12 from Inferno looked kind of cool when firing because of that.

Shivans need missiles that don't look Terran


If you target the Shivan bombs, it will say either "Cyclops" or "Helios". They don't just  look Terran, they ARE Terran.
"The reason for this is that the original Fortran got so convoluted and extensive (10's of millions of lines of code) that no-one can actually figure out how it works, there's a massive project going on to decode the original Fortran and write a more modern system, but until then, the UK communication network is actually relying heavily on 35 year old Fortran that nobody understands." - Flipside

That's just the mission designer's fault for not using Unknown megabomb and Unknown bomb.
