F***ing hell, this stuff is awesome :shock: I can't wait for the HeXen pack! Put this with the FreeLanzer stuff when it's done and the Doom family games might finally have something to rival EDuke32 + DN3D HRP.

Little update and finally continuing working on this (I lost my motivation on this for a while).

Now with a nicer new style I hereby present you how Cacodemons go boomy on gibbing:


Also, fighting Mr. Cyberdemon :)

More comes later ;)

To do:
  • Make nicer blood.
  • Redoing the effects.
  • Making more particle graphics.
And now, after this rather little update, back to work :)

Explosion debris:


Spider Mastermind goes boomy:

What a variation of colors I have here (will come very useful for Heretic \ Hexen monsters \ objects):

Plasma effects (will add sparks):

Arch Vile revives a monster:

I'm so close on finishing this...

Also, I just found out what X\Y\Z momentum in A_SpawnItemEx means. It's so generic, I don't need to ACS anything or set any speeds! That cleans it up a lot! :)

Nice stuff there :)

However, I think most of the effects don't look translucent enough, if you know what I mean.
The sprites you use seem to mix into one big glowing and makes it impossible to see anything beyond it!
I also think the reviving effect of the Arch vile should be something like red fog rahter then the fire you used, since it's hands seem to glow in a red light when reviving a monster.

Still some good work here, so keep it up!

I added these effects onto my models, nice results:

Very interesting results, indeed ;)

I just baked a new style of boomies:
It's just better than spheres ;P

Plasma projectiles now have their good old spark effects, this time with a newer method.

Also, I try and make everything look-through compatible. ;)

.+:icytux:+.'s custom title wrote:ZOMFG! UPDATE!

The alpha channel bug is fixed now, and I played with it for circa a hour, so I made a new explosion with neat smoke! I don't need the additive renderstyle now, which made everything bright and so on to get the nice fade-outs on the edges! This is just awesome from the look of it! ^^


Also, using the enhanced amplification visors \ the invulnerability power-ups don't make everything look... weird, inverted and... boxy. So I can just say one thing:

'Alpha channels = 1337'

I shall continue my work only with alpha channeled graphics now. :)

Very nice work! I saw screens from your sandstorm too, looks great! I'm going to make smoke and sand effects using 3d models, I want to get effect simillar to Doom 3 smoke effects. Who knows what's it come from it ;) For now I only made 26 frames sprite of rocket trail with standard method :)

Completely revamped the main post. There you can find some demos of my work now, like the explosion. :)

Actually, I'm not sure if Doom3 had the particles as models or just plain textures. I don't even know if someone comes far with 3D models... =\

Yes, Doom 3 uses planes with textures for particles. Exactly, I'm thinking about planes models not models like in Quake 2 :D Of course only there where sprite can't be uses. I must say it again: GREAT WORK! :)

An update! But so hella late... boooo!

Added (FINALLY) the new fire effects... looks kinda neat due to my new-new-new technique to draw them... err, or something along those lines. :P


Left most is a test one... all together make it multi colored. Looks kinda neat :) I'm playing with the explosions again... :P
