I am requesting any input really that would be helpful on making the Xindi Sphere Weapon beam look more like the beam in the show Enterprise 3x01 The Xindi, it should look a stream of plasma yellow-gold in color, i have already tried the weapons in the game the beam is not wide enough or the wrong color or not very powerful etc. So it looks like the weapon will have to be made from scratch, the larger ship the one iam working on now is huge, larger then lets say a borg cube iam using milkshape to design the ship, wish i had an armada exporter plugin for 3d max 6, so the weapon can't look puny.

not sure yet, still waiting for some more input, don't wan't to start and then scrap the work it realy takes a fair amount of time. As for the weapon i have tested all in the game and none are even close to what i want, and this is going to be my first weapon build so i don't want to mess it up. thanks for your input!

Well, with my limited weapon experience, you can use any beam, pulse, or torp weapon you want as a base. They are all adaptable as far as size, length, duration, and etc in the ordinance files. Know what I mean? And textures are relatively easy to create... Just find the color you want and change the original using the paint tools in your texturing prog. Nuff said.

The Borg Sphere was a good use of stock model (considering the shape and texture). I think a texture workup should do the trick though ;)

I didn't watch enterprise, but I think your looking for a big superlaser style thing? Take a look at the Species Bio-pulse conduict, I think that might be a good base to work from if it is sufficantly enlarged.

I thought about that, maybe the deathstar super laser that might do. The only thing really in my way is i need a armada2 plugin for 3d max 6

Hello, I’ve been thinking about making a sphere mod also. I agree, but I think the species behemoth weapon could also work. It’s kind of jagged looking. Take a look at spphaser.tga. I had some other ideas too, would you be interested in a collaboration on this mod? :Pimp: Edit: Well, an update, I was working on it some but I give up. :inthetoilet: I was thinking about a planet that could fire a weapon. That way a no-warp zone would surround it. But I couldn’t get the planet to fire. :nono: Anyway, for those spacal anomalies you should also think about a nebula generator that looks yellow like in the show. Well, look forward to it! :bandit:
