I made this poll for the reason of figuring out what weapons people would like most in their plugins. Some people are complete pryos, like me. :laugh: Others like to mine asteroids with cool graphics, others like to plunder their enemies :p, and other people just want good graphics. And who knows maybe your idea may pop up in a plugin someday. Also, try to have your weapon within the Nova engine boundries. If it isn't, it may end up different than what you expected. Alrighty, now for describing any unclear sections.
The weapon's effect
Pretty basic, just what do you want you dream weapon to do? If your dream effect isnt there, then go ahead and post it down here.
The weapon's explosion
Again pretty basic, do you want a big explosion that should (not would) shake the screen, or do you want a small explosion. Or just have an explosion appropriate for your weapon's type, for example: having a laser with a hellhound explosion(this is something not appropriate for the the weapons type which is a laser).
Weapon Submunitions and Particle Explosions
For those who don't know: A submunition is basically another projectile/weapon that comes out of another weapon when that one dies. For example: Your ship fires Weapon A. Weapon A explodes and out come 5 weapon B projectiles.
A particle explosion is a little harder to explain but all it really is, is just another explosion...sort of like shrapnel when a grenade blows up. The shrapnel doesn't hurt, its just awesome to watch. Even more so when your pryo. :laugh: I'm going to have to use examples for the Small, Medium, and Large Particle Effects.
Small Particle Effect - You know when a beam(winter's tempest will do), the small things that fall away from the ship when you hit it? Those are particles, for those that didn't already know, and that particle effect will stand for small.
Medium Particle Effect - Medium would be the small orange particles that expand away from a hellhound explosion, not the giant cloud.
Large Particle Effect - Large effects i dont think exist in the stock Nova scenario. I made one, they look like a giant shockwave of energy that flies off the screen at a really high speed(if you make it right). Large Particle Effects have nothing to do with shrapnel, becuase theres too many particles for it to be shrapnel :laugh: .
I think i covered everyhting well enough...I hope.
Later guys and I look forward from hearing of your ideas,
PS:My occupation is not as a pryo, i just like to blow things up
