Thanks! Here's a GIF. I can see a few graphical errors that I'll need to fix.

UPDATE: Added WIP snow frame.

A mixture of the screenshots and my own painting. I also use some of the snow from the release version where the prerelease snow looked too cartoonish.

He asked specifically about the snow - it's a mixture of the WW screenshot and my own painting. The rest of the WF is a mixture of your work and my own.

Buildup animation is pretty much done - most of the graphical glitches are fixed, just need to add snow transition frames.

FYI - a lot of the progress that we made in 2013 would not have been possible without his ingenuity.

Here's a quick comparison between Tomson's original and the changes I made - improved shading, alpha dome, fixed coloring, per-pixel corrections, buildup, snow frames.

I'm tired of having an incomplete project on my hard drive.

Ok well clearly im tired, secondwtq was asking specifically about how prime made the snow.
Tho some credit where credit was due should have been here considering not everyone would know the backstory of what's going on here so its not entirely without cause.
Embarassed
To rectify it i guess all i can offer is help to understand the shape since i can more less nail practically all of the art in 3D.

Nice work. Are you going to use a 4x3 foundation or a custom one (assuming you use Ares)?

Will you be able to make sure the remap sticks in though? You can use a custom palette that changes some things to make it more easier for SHP Builder to not muck it up by changing the palette namely: Green Background,Blue Remap. So the only red it catches is converted to the Darkest Brick or the Pure Reds and Glowing Reds.

Great idea! Do I need to use Ares to do that?

UPDATE: Snow buildup WIP.

You can use it just in the conversion process. OS Palette Editor,previewing the progress in SHP Builder with the new palette should be satisfactory enough.

I forgot how fun modding could be. Here's my latest product... a damage frame for the Iron Curtain!

I made this in 2D since the textures for the model were lost.

Reposting these here.

Also very glad to have found some of these soviet graphics... since I lost the original files.

Hey all, just wanted to give a brief update.

My SSD failed, and I thought I lost all of my newest prera2 work (PSDs, frames, resources, etc).

So I shipped my SSD off to DriveSavers and after some initial problems they’ve managed to extract a full disk image! So, $2400 later, I have all of my stuff back, or will in the next week or so.

Hoping to wrap some of these up for release! Thanks for your patience Smile

Sad to hear that.

I'll hope we will see more of your work.
