This looks incredible cool!

It was just a test, but it's awesome!









Damn, I'm proud. This time I'm really happy with the effect!

It needs some tweaking, but I'll release it soon.

just looks like two and three planes showing the same effect to me. Is that what it's suposed to be?

Its only one model... and it's too big atm. One of the things I have to fix.


BTW I was testing again... took a few shots. The second one shows the model is too big.






The coolest thing is the feeling. It's really 3d. ;)

thank you for finaly doing some work on the 3D shockwave front, keep in mind it is posable to specify a specific shockwave to both a ship explodeing, and a weapon impact, on a per class bassis.

and I beleive the model should be 40 meters to sync up with the shockwave impact

If only the same could be done with 2d ones, owell

Would be nice to have lotsa different types of shockwaves, when this is done i'l definitley use it.

@Bobboau
I got a *slight* problem here.

The shockwaves uses an animated glow map. Well, that looks great, but the animation begins with the first frame again when it played all frames... very bad.. :(

I think the animation shouldn't repeat for shockwaves at all. Could this be hardcoded?

can you live with it for a few more months? materials system will let you define how it works on a per-material basis. and anything I do now will just end up getting removed in short order.

:( Sure. (Maybe I can find a way around that on my own... I got an idea.)

I just got the right size...







This one almost went through me. ;7

Edit: BTW you know the animation frames already. ;)
It's the last planar shockwave I've released. ^^

Wow, really cool! :) What happens if you look at it from straight on the side, though? It has thickness, right?

Sweet ****ing bajeezus. Release, please. I'd play freespace all day if it had stuff like that in it.
Wh00t!? Vinyl? Is it like an I-pod 2 or something?

Well, it has... somehow. ;)

Edit: It will still look flat from the side. (Somehow)
This is a shot from the side.

Ok, ok. :)

That's what the reason I made it for.
But it just got a bit more complicated. I *think* I can make it work though, but I need some more time.

You continue to amaze.  Now we just need better explosions...


I also noticed that there is NO glow 'on top' of the shockwave.  Just outward.  Is that on purpose or as yet done?

I got an idea.. This "blue" shockwave seems to be the result from the energy systems.. But, what if you tackle on the small red shockwave from the first shockwave dilly in the other thread DaB? That will give off the effect of the "combustion" part. But, simply make the red wave more "firey" in nature. Not like a simple wave, but make it look like a wave of fire. Blue shock wave from the energy/power, red fire wave from the igniting fuel.

Though yea, you gotta keep the original explosion. That's where the red firey wave comes in. It's the fire getting pushed outward faster.

I dunno, just an idea.

I'll release a 'fire-style' shockwave later. It's no problem.

For now I try to coordinate the "Shockwave speed" value for each ship, so the frames won't get repeated. (I hate table work...  :rolleyes: )

I guess this might cause stuttering or too fast shockwaves again, but at least it will work... well it should work. ;)

Maybe I'll have to fix some other things before.

Blue sucks.

Color it better.

Shivans are red.

Otherwise :yes:

I think he wants it to blow up red first, for the ship going boom, and then the big blue shockwave for the energy reserves cooking off. But that's more the job of the explosions IMO.

I don't like blue shockwaves very much too, but this one looks surprisingly good, even for my taste.



@Garvonis
I think it will look odd if the shockwave is red right after the explosion. Don't forget the torps you shoot at cap ships. Unless you have a lot of gfx ram, those torps will detonate with the same shockwave. ;)

I know what you mean though. I'll see what I can do, but I can't promise too much. ;)
