When a phaser fires, the firing ship emits a cirular flare, and no matter what color the phaser is ,the flare is always orange. Is there anyway to change the flare texture if you already had one?

Yes, Edit "xflare.tga" in textures/rgb.

Yes. Add the flare textures you want to the weapon.spr file, then add the line flareSprite = "xxx" to the ordinance file of whatever phaser you want to add it for.

Example: for the Cardie one from my random textures... Sprite Entry: flareca xcaflare 0 0 64 64 @anim=tex2x2 .odf Entry (ordinance file): flareSprite = "flareca"

Yes, you certainly can! And this is the easiest way I know to get them. D/L and install Elevatormusic's Random Textures. You will be amazed at what a difference such a small change will make. :nodding:

Indeed, it adds that little extra detail to the game that makes battles fun to watch, a couple of the weapon textures will be appearing in my Vulcan mod :)
