I was messing around with nova tonight trying to get a weapon that when fired generates a shockwave from the ship and destroys/disables ships in range. it became rather annoying, at first i thought i had it by setting the weapon to explode at the end of its life, setting it as a freefall bomb and seeing if that would do it, i had varying success in the end i gave up.
Has anyone been able to do this.
with the shockwave emitinating from the ships and not falling away as the ships moves... the only way i see that working is if its some kind of beam with the sprites showing the shockwave somehow???
Anyone got any ideas on how to achieve this effect.
for a better reference see Stargate Season 8, Episode "Reakoning Part 2" towards the end of the episode where the Dakara superweapon is fired and destroyed the replicators, i'm trying to reproduce that effect.
