Each ship on star trek has had a different warp flash. I'm using KM 1.0, and obivously the warp and nacelles flashes are used here. What I would like to do is have some ships using their own flashes. From what I have looked at over the various forums is that that warp flashes are used in Foundation.shipdef. Is there a way to create a new shipdef to have different flashes?
Many thanks in advance, Delta
A good question. I believe that would require you to edit NFXv2 in some way. Why not PM nanobyte and ask him?
Or Glenflet. You should be able to contact him via SBP07. Ship Builders Project 2007 • Index page
Thank you for the replies so far. I think I've read somewhere that nanobyte isn't active anymore so I have contacted glenflet and hopefully he'll get back to me. Any other suggestions?
Nano is active (slightly) on BCC, he was just on today.
In that case I'll head over there, thanks for the heads up :beer:
Ok assuming I can get permission from nanobyte I can defiently modify the Nacell flashs, and possibly the flash as the ship disapears Can you give me more spefics, do you want custom flash graphics, or just color, the color is very simple ans would only take a few mintues to add some code, for, however to do the graphics I will need to write several new algorithims to handle.
I'm on a holiday for the next 3 days, so I'll workout what i;m doing when I get back, i.e. I will not be able to reply to any messages, for me for 3 days.
Well when I was browsing around BC Files, I found these warp flashes,
and would like to add those ingame but ideally I would like to be able to learn how to do it myself, just to learn about it really, not to release.
Thanks glenflet, hope to hear from you when you get back
Ok I've got permission from nanobyte to modify NanoFX. So what I'll do is desgin a system so that you can add the flashes by createing a file to tell the code the required information, and you can speficy what flash to use in the ship file. if you don't speficy it will use the race defualt.
