    The rocket fire derives off of the muzzle flash sprites so they will be replaced with the flashes. As for the smoke trail (or the smoke particles in general) I have attempted to change them over and over again, but for some reason I can't find the right file names. =(
    Hmm...

    Well here's a tip: The rocket sprite is not circular, It is a line. I am VERY sure I saw the rocket sprite in hammer once...

    Isn't there a way to create the effects as standalone model sort-of things?

    For example, in Gmod, by default we're able to spawn some of the portal effects from Half Life 2, and move them around by phys-gunning a green circle at their bottom.

    Isn't it possible to do the same for these?

    I'm just curious.

    Wish it was
    Those effects that you mention are different from the effects like the muzzle flashes, bullet impacts, and shell casings
    I'm not entirely sure why, but they are considered prop effects, while the muzzle flashes arent...
    Its... complicated...

    But either way, you can't do that with the muzzle flashes =(

    No you don't get it. If I take all the materials folders inside of 'action flash' and 'Awesome Sparks' and put them in Materials, then I have Garrysmod/Garrysmod/Materials/Effects/Muzzleflash1 (and 2 3 and 4)
    If I do that then I only have one set of effects because they all overwrite eachother, so then I would have to put them in like this; Garrysmod/garrysmod/materials/actionflash/materials/effects/muzzflash1, Which doesn't show up in game.

    The awesome sparks are spark effects
    They shouldn't overwrite the muzzle flash effects

    Well, it was worth a shot to suggest.

    Excellent work, though, I'm sure to use it.

    Oooooohhhh now i get it

    You can, unfortunately, only have one type of muzzle flash at a time. I have mentioned before that if somebody could script an emitter that can use files named muzzleflash5(6,7,8,9...) then I would be very happy. But for the time being, you select the muzzle flash that you like best (or think would best fit your pose if use them for that) then install that one. You can't have them all at once.

    The explosion replacement ruined nuke 4.

    Also ruined Gbombs 3 for me, apparently it didn't for the creator of this.

    :(

    I'm Just wondering are these things just for the emitters or are they for the actual guns? and if they are not would you be able to replace the flash on the actual guns?

    Can you make a tab or something that allows you to disable and enable the effects and choose which ones you have?

    I mentioned these issues earlier in the thread. Look there.

    I'm Just wondering are these things just for the emitters or are they for the actual guns? and if they are not would you be able to replace the flash on the actual guns?
    Why look at the screenshots! I'm firing them from the SMG aren't I?

    Yup

    The explosion replacement ruined nuke 4.

    Also ruined Gbombs 3 for me, apparently it didn't for the creator of this.

    :(
    Um, Nuke 4 doesn't actually use the "fire_cloud1" and "fire_cloud2" sprites, you know that? It doesn't change if you install a new explosion effect.
    As for Gbombs, I found them to make the explosions look way more kickass, so I don't know what your problem is.
    Of course if you want to, you can always just uninstall the explosion. Just delete the fire_cloud1 and 2 files in your materials/effects folder.

    Holy shit, those look sexy. Especially the Pulse Rifle.. While I don't really care for the posing (I suck at it, that's why.), those effects look photoshopish. Also, purple muzzle flash looks kinda weird, but that's probably just me.

    Well just try em in game and tell me they're 'shopped! And you don't need to use the purple one if you don't want to, but I would say it looks very cool in-game.

    That wasn't exactly a very polite way to say that. I knew what I saw. It just distorted the blinding white light so the blinding white light was a black light for some reason. Same for Gbombs. It made it so the blinding-ish light black.

    Seriously? That's weird. Doesn't do that for me...

    Do you have the particle maker stool? The particle maker does the whole black flash thing for me, but not the new explosion sprites...

    I have it, I'm going to remove it and try again, I don't think I've used the nuke sweps since I got it, or if I have.

    Going to just to be safe.

    vmt format, or vtf format? Because they are already vtf's and that should work in any source based game.

    Oh, and if you are going to distribute the mod, you need to give credit to me, alright?

    Okay, I thought this was really cool it's just, before I download this, I just want to know, can you switch which effect you have when you shoot a gun?

    Like if I was to get bored of the purple heat effect, I can switch to the badass effect?

    Of course you can! You can do it without even restarting the game, just replace the muzzleflash files and you're set!

    I used 2 blocks of plastic. Looks very cool, and if rendered at the right moment, can look like an awesome explosion!
