OMG I got it working!!! SUPER-3d-SHOCKWAVES!
Right.. First you get the firey explosions, then the main explosion with a firey shockwave, that might be doable with a 3D explosion animation, maybe, then the energy shockwave a second later from the complete breakdown of the energy core.. No need to explain further, I think everyone gets it.

As for another color, I suggest an amber yellow, or perhaps a white that is mixed with whatever other ambient light is present, if that's even possible.

(Doh, slow posting.. lol) Well, whatever's do-able. This is awesome as it is. But perhaps the firey shockwave could be more sphere-like, instead of circle? Has anyone tried that?


Oh, and by the way, I got a 256MB DDR Sapphire ATI Radeon 9600.. lol..

And I think small red, firey, spherical shockwaves added to the explosions would make torp explosions look insanely cool...

Personally, I like blue shockwaves. I liked the default ones and I like these too. Good job DaB :yes:

Well, sorry guys, there is a new problem.

It looks like the glow map starts at random point, rather than at the beginning. It guess that doesn't mattter for ships, but it kills shockwaves. :(


I can still release what I have if you want it.

Does the shockwave use the ship normal, or does it spawn at random angle?
Looks very leet otherwise.

Small fix (fixes the main texture, which got buggy after DXT compression)


I hope you'll have at least a bit fun with it. ;)

Try instead of spawning it from the ship, have them spawn from the debris.  

For example, take the instance of the red initial explosions.  these would be normal 2D explosions made by the ship breaking up.  Once the ship has been transformed to debris, the blue shockwave could emanante from the debris which since they spin, would put off shockwaves out in random directions.

Uh, I just read my own post....

Never mind, too much work.  Probly wouldn't work anyway.

I've no idea how to change the 'spawn object'.


But it sounds pretty interesting.
