The stock ones are boring, stop discouraging people from improving them - if you don't like the improvements you don't have to use them ;)

 
the purp star beam glow looks extremely odd... i'm not sure why a beam glow would look like that....  First one ("crystal ball") looks cool though, if a little too white

We are looking forward to seeing those.

I want to mess with the disc and the purple star, make a kind of a star with a little halo and a disc (somewhat like the stock ones), i just need to know which files to modify.  I've only worked with stuff that was already there, you see.

Interesting, especially the purple pointy one. My favorite beam glows are still the recolored TBP effects that I use for the beam glows in Starforce, even though they're only 256 colors:


I have green, yellow, red, blue, white, and purple versions of this glow, so that all of my 6 factions has one.

No, they're anticap beams, and they're pummeling a transport (note where the beams intersect).

I meant how is that you are still alive? If you fly directly into an Anti-cap beam, you get fried. I deem those beams are too close to you.

Um, they've missed my ship by 50 meters at LEAST. They look closer because my FOV is set to 0.35 instead of the normal value (0.8).

uhhh... the actual jpg i used in game is the one that is shown on the first post.

The .jpg may look low res cuz i dont think IE displays it right....


all i did to have it ingame was use the latest scp v. and make a new beam based of the sred.

i changed the glow to mine and changed the beam to be white.

Ick. The circles fuxor it.

 
Actually, the second set are better already.  But the lense flare effects are still laid on too thick.

 
Krackers, if you want to do a new set of beam effects for the EA in Inferno please be my guest. :yes:
