Caydr's Uber Explosion + Ground Scars v1.0

Post by Caydr »

As featured in Absolute Annihilation 1.03, here are my new explosion and ground scar images. You know what's strange though? Spring's explosion texture is hardcoded to be a single 128x128 image, while its ground decals for craters are 256x256 and randomly rotating! I think an upgrade is in order!

Do these overwrite the explosions that come witht the game or add to them? Cause if they add to them then you can string together a bunch of explosions, makeing somekind of cool "secondary" explosion when a units ammo gose off due to heat and other stressing forces.

They overwrite. The explosion gets old kinda quick, but the scars are nice

Quite agree. Even the best explosion will look crappy after you've seen it a million times...

Firstly, it overwrites the EXPLOSION... non-plural, unfortunately. I could make a million great looking explosions, but Spring will only use one. One explosion for fire, one explosion for muzzle flashes, one explosion for nukes, etc. One for everything. And it's a crappy little 128x128 texture. A really weak spot of the engine ATM.

First things first. We need more eplosions.

Second thing: Cool explosion. A little cartoony though. If that makes sence...

Apparently spring uses the same explosion for fire aswell, and that just looks wrong.

I completely agree, I want Customized muzzleflares too...and how many times do I have to stress that I want 3D muzzle flares too! I want HUGE fireballs expanding from my tank barrels for a fraction of a second, I want star-shaped muzzleflashes for rifles and machineguns in WD, I want HUGE BIG bertha flares! not a dinky one :|

Perhaps I should modify the smoke effect to make it look like a flame...lol...that would be odd...

anyway nice explosion there Caydr, I'll try it out...
