    Because that requires fluid dynamics simulations. The closest you'll get is the effect on the ragnarok.

    Can't you just grab the submarine explosion and make it a lava colour and some blink particles? Lava effects are pretty hard indeed though but I belieb in you

    I like most of what you do Mirolog.

    I hate that Halley effect.

    It looks like the lowest effort possible.

    It adds a poor looking trail that didn't need to exist.

    It detracts from the epicness of halleys.

    It's just wrong.

    The Halley effect looks like a volcano. I like it,but not for the halley. Perhaps it could be used for the ragnarok? It could be a nice effect to signify the penetration of the planet's core...

    While I do agree with stuart's remarks I also like the idea, and I really like the lens flare, which would look really dumb tacked onto the vanilla effect.
    I suggest something like a scaled up, brighter version of your current catapult effect, but recoloured and with added sparks in and around it to make it look "unstable" and powerful, making the flare wiggle a bit would add to this.
    I dunno how the trail would look scaled up though.
    Or you could just leave it alone, I think a planet-moving engine is already extreme enough.

    The lens flare still makes it look bad and the smoke looks only marginally better.

    also I will rework big building explosions because it's ugly as hell

    ya this flame looks better, but i feel like you need more alpha falloff at the tail. Looks too solid and fake looking in that regard.

    *what happened to the lens flare though, that made it look pretty kool! :)

    Flame in a computer game with cartoonish graphics looks fake? Ok fine will change some numbers again.
    Lens flare texture resolution is too low to make big lens flares. Looks good from afar, but your eyes will bleed if you zoom in. And particle textures are in .papa format so I have a little bit less than zero clue how to edit them.

    The papa texture editor should let you view them. It won't save though as they are in the DXT5 format which I never implemented. However, you can use papatran to make new ones.

    If youre referring to the above, nothing that would directly change the user experience. He just put the proper date and added a mod icon so it displays in CMM properly.

    I'll have a ton of free time in summer, so if anyone has any suggestions/complains/feedback - tell me.
    Also I'll probably re-make some fx from Legion Mod. It will be a mod for a mod. Yea.
