How do you make weapons? Like torpedos and phasers?

Fortunately I always keep my feathers numbered for just such an emergency.

Do you mean, how do you use photoshop to retexture a weapon texture?

pulses or torps, and recoloring to a different color or creating from scratch?

Creating from scratch. All stock weapon textures are rubbish.

Then your looking at a huge amount of work. Like, huge.

You can't just jump strait to creating high quality weapons, you'll need to learn how to use photoshop effectively before you start creating decent new effects, and even then your probably going to find you recreate everything several times as your skills progress.

I'd start by grabbing relevant tutorials from Photoshop Tutorials and Flash Tutorials - Tutorialized and then putting some practice in with photoshop to learn how it works properly.

Even then, you can't change the hardcoding. Yeah, maybe you get some new texture effects but there's no promises the game will let you use those new graphics to the extent you'd like. Unfortunately the limitations of new special weapons --textures and coding alike-- aren't likely to be exceeded by anyone's efforts, although you're welcome to try.
