Attempted to make a black beam ... got this instead.







And here's one of the early beam prototypes ... which failed for very obvious reasons.

Re: A celebration of Freespace
I was actually trying to make a black beam, with a silver lining ... kinda like the Throne's beam weapons, but silver instead of red...

A few more. These are from a test mission where I was testing a bunch of new weapons and a fighter ... hence the lack of proper background ...





The first one is my favorite..

Re: A celebration of Freespace
If you're talking about the beams on Gundam Thrones...they're mostly red with black sparks. You could probably steal the AdvEffects Shivan beams energy thing, and just make the crackling electricity stuff black, and the beam itself silver.

You'll need to use alpha blending for that. Otherwise the game interprets black on the center as transparent... and I don't know if alpha blending works properly on beams. :nervous:
There are three things that last forever: Abort, Retry, Fail - and the greatest of these is Fail.

Re: A celebration of Freespace
I've tried it. Alpha blending does in fact work.

Re: A celebration of Freespace
Some more screenies. By the way, the comments apply to the shot above it.


This beam is now out of date, but I think its a nice screenshot.




I set up a Cain-Aeolus duel with the new beam ...

It only fired its new toy once ...

Then it devolved into a close range brawl ...

The Cain lost, despite its valiant efforts.

Lvlshotted. Many thanks to ShadowGorrath for helping me with the beam.

That's actually a standard AAF, up close and personal. Pretty awesome looking, init? I never knew the AAF was so pretty.

I'd willingly sit right next to an NTF Leviathan's 4 AAAfs just to see that.

I got shot down by one of its escorts.

I never got close enough to see the beams. :(

I was about to mention why doesn't someone post a "Black beam".

I see you took my advice about "polluting it" so we can actually SEE, it as a black beam itself would be invisible.

Forget a black beam, make a distortion beam... that is, the beam distorts the light from the stars behind it, as if it was made of a rod of solid glass.

Did the shivan AAA get redone?
Every pilot's goal is to rise up in the ranks and go beyond their purpose to a place of command on a very big ship. Like the colossus; to baseball bat everyone.
