Post Glow Technologies- technology, with a glow!
Ok gentlemen, i know this isn't the biggest mod pack, but i had nothing to do, so i represent:

Image

Fairly small now, but i hope to expand it in the future. And i know its not all glows, just a name I like.

Here's what i got so far:

Image

The Greeneye:

Because i was bored/ many people want a stronger version, here it is. Able to withstand much more than the regular MK 120, but the name was just an "i dont know how about a random name" sort of thing.






Image

Death Trail
This is probably my favorite, just because. When you have this weapon out, a trail of flaming probes will follow you that will explode/emit heavy fire, which should kill standard AI units. However, i advise if you dont want it anymore, throw it away and get out of the way, for it should go away after a couple seconds (i think three).




Image

The Fire Rain Cannon

If there are many AI's below you, this should solve the problem. It will deploy floating probes that will emit fire around it and drop fire bombs below to get rid of any normal armored units.






Image
Ultima Grenade

Basically a super glowy grenade that kill most everything in the range of the explosion. Just very glowy and fun to look at :D




Image
Acid Rain Cannon


Similar to the Fire Rain Cannon, this will leave a trail of clouds behind it that will start to rain acid, killing most everything in its path. :)

Creds: Azukki's wonderful templates

That's all i have for now, make suggestion etc. etc. or ideas.

Thanks :)

The DL:

Edit: fixed an error that you shoudve got with glows.
Edit2: should be fixed, but let me know if anything doest work

You may want to do something about these gifs. They're huge. And it takes forever to reach the point where you actually see the effects that you're trying to show off due to them loading so slowly.

That grenade screwed my eyes... I like it! :D

I was actually hoping for a full glow faction with glow characters but well, it's still glowy enough.

Ok ill try to address this all:

@darlos: i noticed that, and didnt realize it was because of the size, so ill be fixing the gifs by making smaller ones/ mking .bmps for the mods.

@geti: i see what you mean, and grif agreed with that, so ill be changing that soon.

@gotcha: Im going to see whats the problem right now, and ill post a new version

@deathbringer: thanks, and i am planning to release a glow soldier and such, but i dont know how soon for sure.

Thanks everyone, aprreciate the suggestions, and ill try to fix it soon :)

Feel free to make suggestions of what else to make

Don't make bmp's, at least use Paint's .png compression (bloated compared to Gimp, but not even close to bmp at least). .jpg is alright too, though you'll lose quality.

i want more glows. now. the acid rain clouds took too long to drop the acid rain droplets (i think i phrased that poorly) and the fire for the rain fire cannon lasts too long. all of what is said is imo.

...and from the horizon, descendent of glow king whitty, a new glowing warrior arises to glowrape the mod scene with his glowing wrath.

Cool stuff, but try not to overuse emitters in massive numbers.
Especially lots of emitters that emit frequently alot of stuff. (death trail)

So you dont like the death trail?
Do you think they should just explode and not emit?


Well.....i might change it a little then. P.S. i never knew whitty started the whole glow thing til like two days ago :P
Update should be up today
