those probably are the worst screenshots yet, I reccommend trying it in-game. It's still at experimental stage though :)


:blah:

How about a kosher version where there's just some 32 bit glows for the standard weapon effects? No changes to the coloration, no trails added, etc.?

and that's already available :)

*someone needs to check my signature :p *

I have a complete set with Freespace2's effects in 32-bit.

@Bob:

nearly. Laser bitmaps do NOT support animated textures so i'm fooling the engine by having an invisible laser and an animated 'particle' spawning at the same speed which is animated :)

@Raa:

It does. It has a highly energetic cloud around it which goes poof poof after a while. That's what the description says too :)

It's been like that since FS1, and I actually like it :)


You right, it should. But it's not.

The white hot blob should be infront, followed by the dissipating trail.
On your pics it's the other way around. But then again, the V weapons were the same.:wtf:

lightspeed m8, the ringd trail on the akheton looks really wierd in-game. it would probably look better if the trail was more.......solid-like.....

and i can barely see the maxim ingame, much less the groovy disapatingness of it

If you don't want a home-made FS2 crash I don't advise you to try implementing them.

-edit: if this is a bug i'll post it on mantis.

they look neat in-game, as they are VERY short-lived.

Maybe i'll change them later on, though.

I like what you've done with the Kayser. Immensely better than the formless white streak we had before. :)

hehe just like "wait a sex" translates to "wait a sec" :D

Yeah, i'm thinking of changing the particle for it, making it 'more animated' if you know what I mean ;)

Are you going to be doing this stuff to the Shivans and turret lasers as well? :)

lightspeed m8, give those rings ont the kayser more body. Not just a standard ring.... can you simulate an ion trail of sorts?

the rings should be more pariticulate, and the bolt should be brighter

(needs a diferent pof);
Shivan Cluster, FighterKiller, MX-52

< + Others >


Now people want new missile models? I've been planing on doing this for some time.  Already have LODed hornet and Trebuchet.

If your intrested Lightspeed, I can whip up a few missile models for you.

And BTW, those are some cool effects! Not sure about the SDG, but Kasyer:yes:

k, i'll try around with making the rings -- let's see how it'll work out.

@IceFire: Yes, and i will not only do the weapons you know of, i'll be doing a lot of extra stuff (mainly for shivan use) -- I heavily dislike the 'err... very small' variety they show in their main element (energy weapons), and let's face it: in FS2 they're totally undergunned. So it'll be a lot of unique, and really alien shivan stuff :)

The Kayser's not really supposed to be bright. It's a new technique of weapon which incorporates shivan technology. It's not really a blast of burning plasma or the like anymore.

@ the models: bring it on! I can't model anything. I can give them textures and trails as well as .tbl entries, though ;)

I need all the models I can get :D
