Yet another work in progress, still from the same source as my last two. The first person to guess where it's from correctly now gets to test my weapons pack if they want.

Maybe, just maybe, this will be the cloak image for the ship I just made.

I decided to kick off work on the next update for my weapons mod with steamtex's suggestion for a chrono cannon.

Weapon animation (based on this):

Shot animation:

Image

Explosion animation (pretty much ripped right out of RA2's files):

Image

Hey, one of my weapons actually turned out pretty good for once! Now I just have to make four more weapons that look just as good. I've added a list of what I plan to do next on the mod's thread for those who are interested.

I expect that phasing sound the Chrono Legionnaire's weapon made to be the firing/impact sound for this.

I resent the fact that you even think this needs to be said! ALL of the new sounds for my weapons ALWAYS come directly from their respective C&C games, and I'm very careful when making sure the sound fits the weapon. You won't be disappointed.

Also I got the virus gun finished.

The weapon animation is obviously a modified light laser from CE and the explosion is once again from RA2. It's fortunate for me that so many of RA2's animations fit so well into FTL.

Did some more work on my "Federation Fleet Cruiser 2". Gradients and glow on it as well in this one as well as alterations to the helm, shading, bridge, wings, and engines...

opinions? do you guys think it is finished?

Right. It looks about 98% complete to me, and I really like how it came out. My only comments are:

Image

This is quite out of place. The top "nacelle" needs to have different lighting/shadows.

Additionally, on the engines, right on those little "panels" where the salmon stripes go (by the engine nozzles), there should probably be a tiny bit of a shadow on the bottom one. Everything else is spot-on.

Wow, that looks great! Well done! I hope it gets integrated into CE! :o

Another thing: There are quite a few graphical artifacts on that sprite. I mean, I put it under the microscope on GIMP and saw about 100 graphical artifacts/blurry things.

I fixed about 95% of them, including your asymmetrical engine-things, and rivet-line-things.

Image

I might not be good at making ship sprites, but at least my one skill besides weapons is fixing them.

I feel like the colors there could fit together a little better.

Got the firestorm weapon done. It turned into another beam which I was hoping to avoid, but I suppose I don't have to many beams yet.
