Go into Notepad and open the weapons.tbl file. Use the "find" dialog box to find the weapon "BVas". There will be a line where it specifies the radius of the glow in meters. Reduce the number as needed.

I know how to do that, thats how i renamed the files in the first place

I'm definitely not up to going through all the beams again and changing everything, so I won't, if someone thinks they can separate the flare from the beam origin point, and then have that display on top regardless, except when the point is out of sight (i.e. on the other side of a ship), then they can do it.

I think Turumbar's the best :D Looks most like the originals, while still having that new feeling.

 
LOL (drools) nice... The orange one looked like phaser fire (yes, the "ball" was too big)
The green one looked almost romulan :D

Very good job!!

Same here, when this is released doesn't effect the way current thrusters look, or something??
Or does just look different on beams??

I changed the weapons.tbl so that it wouldn't conflict with thrusters, as i just made a thruster set like, yesterday, (I'm waiting for Drew to upload it)

Oh, and i think i caught the beam at a thin point, that there is the high-power beam that destroyed the Belisarius, It's gotta have big balls!, or rather, a higher energy *cough*

Am I the only one that thinks not looking 'most like the originals' is a GOOD thing? :nervous:
[I am not really here. This post is entirely a figment of your imagination.]

Hmm, Turambar's looks nice.  Could be a little smaller and it would be nice if the lense flare effect could be a full circle somehow (no idea how to do that).


As for looking like the originals.  It doesn't matter too much to me if they look the originals or not, but rather if they look good, and not peculiar.

Put the orange ring on a ship and have it fire a vas beam.  I just wanna see what it would look like.  Also, I love the green one for Terran's, it's plain cool.
