I think that you need to add glows to it. Don't ask me how, I'm a simple HPer and textures (other then torpedoe's) give me headaches....

I belive you have to add masks onto them where the glow is suppose to be (impulse engines, windows, warp ect...) if you want to i will be happy to do it for you you just have to send me the *.tga files. Otherwise just use a program like Micrografx Picture Publisher ( :-D ) or Adobe Photoshop ( :-S )

...or Paintshop Pro. The 'mask' you want is called the Alpha Channel. Here, you create an identically sized image to your main image, but in black and white. The whiter it is, the brighter it will appear ingame. Black will have no colors added. Then use the 'load alpha channel' option to get it onto your TGA.

Paintshop Pro will also allow you to set transparent color so the black part of your icon becomes transparent if you wish...


I'm too cool to Post

Hi. I'm a stupid, lazy n00b that's too lazy to make his own thread! Hosts of forum: move this if you like!

I need help with Star Trek: Bridge Commander (I'm a trekkie!). I need to know how to remove some evil little bridges from my game.. and I've searches most of my directory. More information would be greatly appreciated! ...and don't lie to me... or you won't receive a free blow job!

Man... I need to change that quote thing under this....
