An updated version of my mod. Fiddled with the emitters a bit to make destruction look more realistic. As you've probably noticed before, there is a slight...
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.
For those who are still interested in this mod, I can assure you that it is not dead. The progress on the mod is quite slow though, mostly because I don't have much free time (studies and everything).
As you've probably noticed, the mod isn't uploaded yet. The reason is that it currently has way too many loose ends and partially done features, and I don't really want to submit an unfinished mod. I'll try to hurry, although I still can't say much about the release date of the new version.
Speaking of which, the new version will include few new features:
Aerial debris (mostly done)
As seen in screenshots, this feature makes airplanes spawn several burning chunks of debris when they explode in mid-air.
Structural integrity failure explosions (mostly done as well)
This function spawns small explosion effect on a unit that had taken critical damage or is near death. Makes unit destruction feel more realistic, as units begin to fall apart after sustaining too much damage. Or, well, at least that was the idea. Works quite well, even though it makes the smallest units look like they've been covered in firecrackers. Also, it uses unit's death sound, which works pretty well in much cases, although looks (or, rather, sounds) quite weird when this happens to an ACU.
Environmental effects (early stages)
The original game was a bit too clean for my liking, and this feature was created to fix that. It controls how weapon fire interacts with terrain, meaning artillery impact will cause dust clouds, etc. It's still quite early in development as there are more terrain types than I initially thought.
Since the mod uses some of the usual files used in other modifications, some merging is required to make it work with others. If anyone has any requests, let me know.
And for that guy who uploads my mod to other sites: I have nothing against that, I enjoy it appearing in other places as well, but seriously, at least PM or email me about it.
