  • Vman, did you use lua particles or are you using the particle editor? Also, I recommend you add a shockwave.

  • Man, this is some good stuff, but now it's sinking to the 2nd page of threads. God I can't wait.

  • I haven't gotten a message for my bro who's working on it :saddowns: I'll give it another week then I'll just release the particle.

You have the particles ready, so I am sure someone will be able to put them to good use. I think a "Nuke Stool" would be most appropriate because of the customization options such as Power/Force/Size/De-constraints Props/Etc. Then just use the stool on any type of prop to turn it into a nuke. Clean and simple, and you can still add Wire functionality. On a serious note, there are too many teta nuke addons with "fixes and updates", most of which are just changes to the number of models to choose from in the entities tab, and who knows what else. Better to start from scratch no?

  • [QUOTE=Electrocuter;29176455]Any updates on this?[/QUOTE] Yea, got a guy working on it right now. There's gonna be airstrike and suitcase delivery, possibly an entity version as well.

  • I am definitely looking forward to this! Retinal burns are a good idea, and what do you mean by suitcase delivery? Keep up the good work!
  • If you want help making a schvexy youtube video advertising this, I'd be happy to lend I hand. I've been stalking this thread for a while now, and cannot wait. I have FRAPS, a beefy computer for 1080p videos, and I've used After Effects, Premiere, and I've got too much time on my hands. So uh... yeah, I'm pretty much just looking for an excuse to make a video with a shit-ton of nuclear explosions. Keep us posted :smile:

  • Damn, I wanted to code this for him. The problem with teta_bonita's code is that it doesn't work through world brushes because IIRC it uses blast damage from a single point. Also is making particles this way easier? The Lua emitter style is difficult to get the effect looking pretty.
  • [QUOTE=Dog;29231848]Use source recorder so there's absolutely no lag.[/QUOTE] I don't think it works with Garry's Mod (yet, at least). But I'll look into it. The source recorder allows for a lot of awesome cool effects, like motion blur and advanced DOF, which makes for some awesome videos. [editline]17th April 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=Wunce;29237613]Also is making particles this way easier? The Lua emitter style is difficult to get the effect looking pretty.[/QUOTE] I would think so. The tool that comes with the Orange Box for making particle effects allows you to see you effect in real time as you make it, rather than doing guess work with lua. It still takes an awful lot of skill.

  • Very nice, you should add a pulling back vacuum style effect. Since nukes suck up a lot of air to compensate for the fire and etc. But really cool.

  • Hey VMan I've always wanted to ask this. Is there anything you [B]can't[/B] do?
  • [QUOTE=cashman123;30033152]Monster bump I know, but- Did this get shit-canned or what?[/QUOTE] I second this, I desperately want to see this in nuke-form. Hell, I'll even take a shot at slapping it onto a weapon myself if you've got the effect finished. AND I figured out the source recorder.

  • Wow, this looks awesome. I suggest making the shockwave a little bit wider, maybe have the fire particles spread out and fade a little more, but other than that it looks awesome.
