You didn't watch the video. However, I'll explain it to silence the frustrating you are apparently feeling. That is not clipping. that is the groundring, part of the groundflash ceg effect. It isn't clipping. that is the hard edge of an actual graphic.

so the thing you thought was clipping is an actual effect working as intended. Except I said that I wanted to remove it and posted a HD video on youtube showing the new version..

ha ha ha proper sprites. spring's weapon system is retarded and we have only certain visuals for certain weapon types. Pretty damn annoying imo.

I don't think you quite understand still what he is meaning by clipping, Smoth.

=> There's a reason all explosions in Spring do this, d-gun.

He is pointing out the explosion graphic and how many of them are half-submerged with the ground. Nothing to do with the groundring at all. Are you stoned?

Your original reasoning for using models instead of sprites were that the units wouldn't fire when features were in the way. That hasn't been a problem for a long time. The only other possible reason could be ballistic behavior, but the shots are traveling so fast that ballistic or not, it really doesn't matter because the trajectory is still pretty much flat.

Edit: After random pm in the lobby informing that that wasn't the reason for going to Cannon weapontype..

Well then what was it? We both know that lasers are by far the easiest weapon to control in spring, and the only thing that sucks is the fact that they can't be ballistic.

Light bleeds.

In the real works, light doesn't just stop suddenly near the ground. it has this nice fuzzy edge. You can see that in smoth's photo.

Some selective bloom on the bottom of the explosion sprite would mask this nicely. Any way to do that in Lua?

that is the heat cloud sprite, also removed in the final version which can be seen in the video.

this isn't me trying to find a favorable shot just the last shot I took.

bloom would remove the contrast in colors. Considering our already ugly additive blend I don't want to see the colors lost even more. A bit of glow could help a bit but I have been asking for glow for years now.

also spring is already expensive as it is. All these shaders add up mid.

Spike, if you do a Vietnam-mod, how do you handle the assymetric aspect? Its tough to make realism, with a enemy whos main strongpoint was his ability to hide and use traps.. i can tell having done some similar balancing attempts myself..

Question: From what game/platform is it? Call Of Duty? Or Spring?
