I don't know why, but I can't see the images of the beams. Except for Woolie's picture, of course. And I can see Kalfireth's as well, but the new beam effects, no.

the blue one has ugly cutting edges. Fade the colour to $0,0,0 instead of something like $0,0,10.

Personally, I think the orange ones look like some hypnotizing tools to me.
Modern man is the missing link between ape and human being.

 
I like the Orange ones. The the first picture looks like a supernova to me :D
The blue ones are ok but don't look like particle beams.

I would recommend to mix both together, but without the flares.

The majority of people allow use of their stuff as long as credit is given, and there were no special guidlines for usage of your effects. So I just went and thought that what satisfies the goose satisfies the gander.

They all look kinda nice :)

However the original ones still look 'cleaner' to me, like they're part of the beam, whereas these ones have this slightly 'Bolted on' look.

The second set on this page look a lot better than the ones of the first page 'tho. I think it's the transparency, but they look a bit weird when viewed side-on...

Many of the mods I have used sources from said merely to give credit in their readmes or somewhere else conspicuous and the others said nothing. If it said to ask for permission before I used a resource, I wouldn't use it, because the person who made the resources might say no or not even respond at all. As I began to release screenshots, nobody really voiced any objections, so I saw nothing wrong with it. Even after I released that screen and another screen showing beams with the same glows some months ago, nobody mentioned that I should have asked. AND NOW YOU TELL ME?!

ever consider that I DIDN'T SEE THEM UNTIL NOW

It's common courteousy to ASK before using - but as long as your crediting go ahead and use them - just remember to ask in the future.  We've been over this once before on this forums and it killed a project because the person borrowed from what not a member of the community and they were extremely offended and demanded that the person remove the models and said since they didn't ask before using they couldn't use them.


And if you're afraid to ask because they may say no - and then you use it they're going to be even MORE pissed.  You know that's technically copyright infringement!

Understood. Sorry for any offense I may have caused.

It's too big.  Half of the side is cut off where it intersects with the destroyer.  While that's not necessarily the end of the world for the glow itself, the fact that the lense flares are cutting off abrubtly is a bit wrong IMHO.  It's not bad though and scaled down a bit it should actually work quite well.

the effect is a real one, the higher energy levels near the beam origin point generate higher wavelengths of light and it fades a bit through the spectrum (i got it off a saber mod for JK2)

No no, not the rings of the lense flares, the hard edge where they intersect the destroyer.  The glow itself may be masked out, but as the lense flare is a product of the observer rather than the source, the ring should still be a full circle.  Right now it isn't.  The scaling's too big.

Table entry. Reduce the glow radius.

and im not much of a coder, so i dont know how to do the sort of thing where you see the lens flare over everything else.  

I just wanted a "little bits of energy coming into the beam" effect, like in Gundam Wing, except less cartoony
