No, and that’s the point, actually. A big part of the reason why I’m making these is because of me getting tired of using Gmod’s emitters to get the effects I wanted. My rig is okay for the most part, but when you have several emitters going off at once it can get laggy. Why waste the extra memory on something that isn’t going to be animated in the final product, a picture? Why not just have a still image of something that I can simply pose in instead?
Sorry about the image spam. Should be enough for now. Couldn’t find much Elder Scroll Spells that I was hoping to find. Maybe I just have “Souls” in my brain. Let me know if you want any more images for inspiration. I tend to find a few unnoticeables.
I will definetley make some lasers, but I will make them colorable so people can make them green or blue, too.
Also, here’s a WIP shot of the magic circle. It will come with several alternate skins. This one in particular was done by a friend of mine on DeviantArt called Azerik92, he’s got a whole bunch of these kinds of arrays he’s done, so I’ll be including a couple of them. I already have permission from him to use them!
There’s a small collection of effects from Super Smash Bros. Brawl that might be useful for the pack over at models-resource. I’m not sure how many of them would be of use to the pack, but I think some of Marth and Ike’s effects might be of use to some people.
As I said, I’m not porting anything, all of these will be original content.
That being said, it’s a bit of a learning experience for me, as it means I’m having to figure out and learn HOW to make this stuff. The Muzzleflash and the Blood spurts, for example, I figured out how to make those on the fly.
Apologies, I missed that post. I was making my post before that one came up, but I forgot to submit it before I went AFK earlier. I guess I should refresh the page more often whenever I get back from being AFK.
Still though, more variations of the magic circles wouldn’t hurt; that’s the reason I made those suggestions. The only other suggestion I can think of at the moment would be something like a ghostly sword. That should be fairly easy to make; it’s mostly just a generic sword model with that one shadow effect that CaptainBigButt managed to come across applied to it, which I think might be useful.
I wasn’t aware of that. Seven variations actually makes for a good collection.
After further thought on that idea, I have to agree that it really does seem like it would be more of a prop than an actual effect. Scratch that idea then, I’ll have to think of something else that might be of better use as an effect.
