VFX overhaul

Hey guys, so i got sidetracked from my other mods, again. good thing is it's almost ready for release (hopefully in the next week-or-two), as the thread title says, it's a vfx overhaul, i am aiming replace most if not all VFX and FX textures. plus its an open beta so i want lots of opinions from people before i get to the final release, download the beta pack and check out these screens
Show spoiler

DOWNLOAD BETA 1
(if it doesn't download right away hit ctrl+s or go file > download)

WOW! Those textures are amazing DS. I honestly never thought about those textures much, and I certainly didn't know they could look like that.

I am really drawn to your stasis texture, drain life, and your poison grenade textures. Can't wait to see your sonic grenade and thermal detonator...

You been experimenting with the .txi files?...

Really nice job with these.

i had, but i found that for particle effect textures ( which is what those are) the various imformation (such as blending, framerate, frames) is part of the mdl, which we cant really edit, yet.


thanks guys your comments are really motivating!

Some of these are looking really good, IMO, however, i don't much care for the overlays on the beasts. They don't look very real, and while they are better than they were, i still don't like them. Also the green smoke in the last picture needs some improvement. It looks a little too flat. Great start though!!

I haven't seen them ingame yet, but screenshots look great. Drain life is my favorite at the moment.

I agree on that awesome drain life, DeadMan. And the lightning is nice, but seems to miss something, a stark brutality, like how Palpatine's looks in Epsiode 3.

Some good work here, DS.

I particularly like the new flame and poison effects - they're a huge improvement over the vanilla versions.

The effects on creatures hit by lightning, drain, and stasis are also a huge imrpovement.

I'm not so sure about the actual drain, death field, and force lightning beam effects though; IMO those could use some work and maybe a few more layers of detail.

Still, great work so far. Can't wait to see more.
