That would be okay as a screen saver and kinda looks cool, but it dosn't look like it has that much to do with BZFlag, did you make it?

No, that isn't what it looks like, but it is nice looking.

It is nice, but it doesn't look anything like bullets :P It looks like an attack from a cartoon that hypnotizes you.

If you want something that resembles BZFlag shots, then do this....

----> Open up your image with the gimp
----> Right click on the image
----> Go to filters
----> Light Effects
----> SuperNova
----> Make it so there is only 1 spoke

Your image should resemble something like this....

Image

Hope it helps you :D

...or you can just import the BZ shot image from the data folder under "My BZFlag Files", and have the actual shot.

the supernova effect you made looks cool anyway, it would make a good SW if it was bigger

What would be cool is if you could make a matrix bullet time video of that.

Looks cool, maby mix up the shots a bit instead of them being in groups.

They look wonderful :)


PETEY has a good idea there, mix up the bullets a little bit. What else can you do? :)

still working on mixing up the bullets, looking for the right objects, lights, settings, etc. to use.
so far ive tried mirror surfaced spheres with different colored lamps nearby, doesnt look right yet.

Not really.

To me, it looks like a blue bullet surrounded by heavy blue fog :)

you should change the background color to make the bullet easier to see.

this should make it a little clearer:

for whatever reason, it never renders as clear as it does in the preview

Uh oh, you better put up a link to that pic instead of just pasteing it here before you get into trouble :) Or at LEAST get rid of some of the black.

The center of the bullet just seems plain, is there a way to make it 3d?
