rocket trail / launch effect(s)

Postby kinetosimpetus » Thu Aug 20, 2009 1:02 pm

It uses a more flame like trail, and adds some offset flame and smoke effects that only play once, making it look like smoke and fire come out the back of the launcher.

The fx and (hopefully) all textures required included in the download.
Put it Sides\Common\effects\ and use
Code: Select all
TrailEffect = "com_sfx_weap_rockettrail_flame_2"
in the rocket ord file (also change light colors to match! I used the values from the ALL rocket)

Download

A version for the SBD wrist rocket

Download sbd wrist rocket version

The second version!
Back exhaust smoke spreads a little more, and flame is smaller.

While I don't quite adore the effect itself, I love the idea of an offset flame to simulate a fire effect.

Do you have any suggestions for an improved version?

Perhaps the backwards exhaust could be smaller.

Yeah, great concept, but I'd make the back effect smoke-like. It looks kinda odd to me to see a fireball come whirlin' out of the back end of a rocket launcher.

Maybe you should have the standard muzzle flash at the front and smoke at the back?

Nice work on the back blast effect! Makes it seem a little more realistic. (Otherwise, if it were blaster effects, I'd be calling it 'authentic' rather than 'realistic'.) Nice job, again. Might come in handy someday for me when I'm like....mapping more. :p
