This is Firey Explosion Mod for Supreme Commander Forged Alliance. Well, I guess that it's quite obvious what this mod does. I tried to make explosions look more eye-candy while retaining some realism. This is my first attempt to make a mod, so there are still some features I would like to add, but dunno how. Anyway, this mod only alters effects, so it shouldn't clash much with gameplay mods such as 4th Dimension or Experimental Wars.

Speaking of which, the new version of the mod contains a few new features, such as modified missile trails, improved underwater destruction, a couple of weapon effects were tweaked as well. Apart from these, the previously promised features (structural integrity explosions, aerial debris and somehow improved environmental effects) are included as well. Please keep in mind, though, that these features are still at quite early stage, probably will be improved in the next release. A few, more complicated features were left out of this release, such as the plane dismemberment, mostly because the functions for these features are quite chaotic at the time.

Firey Explosion Mod 2.6 Beta

This version of the mod is fairly stable (at least as far as my testing went), however there are still a couple of minor issues that I yet have to find a work-around for:

- The tweaked Tactical Missile trails sometimes jerk around a bit, especially at the moment when they come into view.

- Structural integrity explosions still use unit's death sound, which is fine most of the time, but still sounds weird when happens to the ACU.

The new update will bring few new features. When it is released, that is. Progress was quite slow lately.

Good Job!!But I have a question,you don't change all the missile trails of Cybran and Aeon.Is that a mistake or you mean to do it ?Sorry for my poor English.

To be honest, I'm not sure what to change about Aeon missile trails. They are a bit plain and boring, but I have no idea what other effect would suit Aeon sleek design. As for Cybran, I only modified tactical and strategic missile trails.

I would have maybe an idea: The rockets of the Aeon could eject green circles backwards. So, how to simulate ultrasonic waves in bats. These rings would be around the main beam getting bigger and more transparent, the farther they are from the rocket. The beam in the center should still be slightly changed.

What do you think, Luxor?

How about making it a bright white trail which leaves a mark as it soars through. Then the mark slowly dissipates, if need be the explosions of their projectiles remain the same except that the color is changed to a bright white. This might actually be perfect due to their background.

Sick mod, really sick.
The only thing what should be fixed is that some units won't attack anymore, the T3 UEF Heavy Artillery Unit for example, he doesn't attack.
And other stationary tanks won't either (with another unit mod).

Is there a way to make like, a mod ONLY with those super awesome smoke effects on the rockets as they launch off? If you could do this for me it would be PER-FECT.

Regardless, one of the best mods of SUPCOM.

Wait, so you want a mod that makes the missile trails fatter and changes nothing else?

Yeah, that would be very awesome! Or maybe with a bit of bigger explosions if that's even possible, but I would definitely like to have the smoke trails as a standalone mod, is that possible mate? Props

Well....um, yeah, that is possible. PM me which exact effects (tactile missile trails, strategic, etc.) you want in your pack.
