Mainly this question is directed at the creators of the FX mod but if you know the answer feel free to answer. How do you make the beam weapons? I have tried multiple times but they never turn out correctly and seeing your latest update made me want to know how to do it.

That's basically a trick with custom texture and proxies in 3Ds Max. It's used by our IFT-X .

Filo, I think he means the beams like the Krayt special weapons.

Thats made in the particle editor, and are relatively easy to make. There should be a particle editor tutorial somewhere but I cant remember where to find it.

Thanks for the help both you and Filo. Will look for the tutorial.

Beams made with particle editor only (I mean, without max assistance) are decent but buggy. Trust me, beam-making is something I've studied very deeply :P

If you want beams just like in the FX update but not so glowy and with few minor bugs, download my old mod called "Filo's Laser Beams Graphic Mini-mod".
