OMG I got it working!!! SUPER-3d-SHOCKWAVES!
Thats a pretty arbitrary distinction.  Until we get area-specific explosions (ie, different explosions for powerplants cooking off, magazines exploding, fuel tanks rupuring etc) we're going to have to live with compromise.

T and V technology is largely interchangable by FS2, so why would their explosions be different colours?  Where does the 'stuff' of the explosion come from anyway?  Is it fuel, or armour, or cocaine, or what?

Found it, the ring will have to go but I think if you cleaned the sphere effect up it would be nice in fs2... I tried to convert this 2 years ago and the pallete made it look all prismatic so I gave up.



If I am right no matter what angle you see it from it will still look like a sphere.

Edit: BTW I need these in YELLOW for RT2, anie style solid but transparent explosions. If you ever seen the show's anti-missile spreads and supression fields you know what I mean.

Yeah, it chould work, but it requires EFF support for glowpoints.

With this feature, I could create this effect in a 3d version, but I really doubt it will look better than the current 3d effect.

The main problem are the hard edges and the texture for the sphere. I fear the sphere won't look very good...

All other build won't display the effect correctly.

Delete all shockwave files you have, (yeah, everything!) and try the second test release of the new shockwave:

It works more efficent.

Then make it in blue. It's not that hard to change the colors.

Actually, it is.  The files are in DDS format, and Photoshop doesn't really like them.  Plus, there's a different DDS file for each frame.
Bunny stole my signature :(.

Sorry boobies.

Well, there is a DDS plugin, but I'd not recommend to recolor compressed(!) frames and recompress them.
The final product will suffer huge ugly compression artifacts.


No problem, I'll recolor the uncompressed frames when I get the time. ;)

Do you think you can release the source images in a lossless compression format?  I think that would do well for the community :).
