I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta

DaBrain, do you do effects professionally?  I really think you could.

If something like that was ever implimented, It'd better stay optional. The races are already color-coded enough as it is.

Just a stupid question, shall we need the tbl files from your primary version ? I mean the 2 tbl file in the zip (ship and weapons).

Another question, how to replace the main explo when you take down an enemy fighter with the one from the TBP 3.2 ??
I put all the explo i found in the effects folder but, i don't see those effects during missions.

I second this. Colour coding everything looks ridiculous.

The question isn't stupid at all. The animation of the frames shouldn't depend on the "shockwave speed" value in the ships.tbl.

But the speed of the model animation could be connected to this.

ATM I'm using the new ships.tbl. (The one I've posted.)
I'll test this tomorrow, but if you want to help me you could test it too. I don't think it's a big deal. :)

Second question:

That's weird. Try to do exactly what I wrote:

This just has to work. :)

Unless...

Well, try to create a new TBL, fireball.tbl

Code: [Select]
; fireball.tbl
;
; Table file for specifying which filenames are to be used for which explosions
;

#Start

$Name: exp04 ; Used for the 4 little explosions before a ship explodes
$LOD: 1

$Name: WarpMap01 ; Used for the warp in / warp out effect
$LOD: 1

$Name: WarpMap02 ; Used for the KNOSSOS warp in / warp out effect
$LOD: 1

$Name: exp05 ; Used when an asteroid explodes
$LOD: 1

$Name: exp05 ; ship explosion 1
$LOD: 1

$Name: exp06 ; ship explosion 2
$LOD: 1

Maybe exp20. It looks pretty cool for beam hits.

You would have to rename all frames to ExpMissileHit1_xxxx though.

dunno... I LOVE those new shockwaves, but....
what I'd REALLY like to see as a shockwave (at least for capships) is.. who remember the one from the star exploding at the beginning in ST:generation, with the station being destroyed by that massive spherical wave? it wasn't colourful or "nice", but it was the most "realistic" shockwave I can remember from any sci-fi

Ok, DaB? I put it in, and the explosion is going way too god damn fast. Is there any way to slow the thing down?

Use it for something with a slow shockwave, like a meson bomb, and you can watch, annoyed, as the shockwave changes frames slowly.

@ MD: I put in both the tables which came with release 1.0. Was there another tbl file I missed?

Eh, the red one isn't planar...


Well, I like the blue one most too. There is nothing wrong with that.


Maybe I should have eplained this better:

The red version has to be copied over the blue one.


The model and the tables are missing in the package. It's not the final version of the red shockwave anyway, so I didn't care.


Please wait for the final version if you're not happe with it, or just use the blue one. :)

I've decided to redo it from the scratch, so it may take a while.

Wait, what?!

This is not a signature.
You did not see this.
It was all a dream.
You will not tell anyone about this.

Now go and read this signature again.

So, you actually bothered to scroll down, eh? If you're that bored, you might as well take a look at the links above.
