custom VOGON plasma sprite

Postby DEAN SINSTROM » Thu Dec 31, 2009 21:35 UTC

I've made a new plasma sprite for the Vogon posse.
The best part is it burns the Vogon 'V' into the wall.
Here's a video showing it in action: (sorry for the bad quality... I used my digi cam to record the screen:P)

Download it here:

Unzip, and drop the pk3 into your Quake III Arena\baseq3 folder.

Enjoy!

I just realized that the V gets burned into the wall when you shoot the rail w/splash damage too.
Huzzah!

Cool stuff, i like the V touch. I can mirror it @ Rapidshare, Megaupload and Filefront. It's not about file size, but more about making sure file is not lost somewhere.

Here's a new sprite for the LG: (didn't know if I should make a new thread or not, so I added it here)

From the read me:

pak_DS_VOGON_lightning.pk3

This a replacement sprite for the lightning gun.
The idea behind it is to make the lightning look less erratic like lightning is, and more of a strait beam.

Unzip and drop the PK3 into your \\Quake III Arena\baseq3 folder.

Enjoy.

Cool, i will mirror it. Maybe we could rename it to pak_DS_VOGON_lg.zip or pak_DS_VOGON_lightning.zip ?

Done.
I've edited the zip/pk3/link, and updated my original reply above.
You can mirror the file now dyn. :)

File is mirrored, i removed thumbs.db file from zip archive. Nothing big, but it makes zip file even smaller. You may want to replace your zip file with this one. Folder links are same as above. Here are individual links:

http://rapidshare.com/files/333195056/pak_DS_VOGON_lightning.zip
http://www.filefront.com/15329661/pak_DS_VOGON_lightning.zip

Plasma looks great, nice work! :)

Oo, can't wait to try these goodies; I've really been enjoying the Railbow.

Hey, Dean, can your 1337 5k!11z provide us with a Railshot that actually arcs (bows outward from the centreline)? Still a straight shot in effect, but looks like an arc of lightning or something. I would be giddy.
