[GFX] [MOD] Explosion Revisions 512x512 with overglow
« on: January 11, 2011, 06:29:14 AM »
Well here it is!

Download -> http://filesmelt.com/dl/Explosion_Effect_revision_by_eRe4s3r.rar

This mod does the following things (and has 3 modified sprite animations)

Revises sprite effect Explosion\Large -> Adds glow, makes it fainter/shorter
Revises sprite effect Explosion\Large2 -> Adds glow, makes it stronger (than Large)
Revises sprite effect Explosion\Small -> Fainter, smaller and glow

These 3 effects work "together" - Please note, its not overglow nuclear effect style, but if you have thousands of ships dieing you can expect an "adequate" effect level that will make this event noticeable even in far zoom.

Below how it looks scrapping a fleet of 600 400 ships in CLOSEST zoom - notice that i did not change the grenade explosion (which is a really cool effect and looks pretty nifty as is without glow)



This time there are no Attachments anymore - its 8mb+

Install the folders inside the rar to here
AIWar\RuntimeData\Images\Explosion - make backups of Large, Large2, and Small.

Thanks for this mod. I really like these explosions more than the stock ones :-)

looks nice!

Does a modded game (with this mod) count as cheat or prevent archievements? and is this already in the game with version 7.0?
same question about your Shieldhiteffect mod.

Texture mods are not counted as cheats or prevent achievements. However, I believe both those mods were actually integrated into the base game. You already have them. ^^

I am actually not entirely sure that is the case...  I know the shield effect mod was added but was it kept through expansions? The explosion mods were never added to the game officially. Is why this mod is still here ;p
