Since TI didn't want it, I release it for public use.

It needs the TS 32 facing hack for SHPs.
It has the following features:
-glowing headlights
-firing anim with blue glowing stripes on the railguns
-walk anim with theater matching dust particles (blue/white on snow maps, brown on temperate maps)

Also included are 2 versions of some kind of energy projectile (32 facing).
The bigger version is shown in the gif below.

Have fun and credit me, if you use it in a public mod.

Excellent work! I appreciate technically correct details like the glowing colors and the flying dirt using the theater-remappable colors. Maybe a tad dark compared to vanilla TS units, but that's a minor issue (vanilla units look like crap anyway).

Any chance of having an animated, spherical version of the projectile?

I am completely baffled.

Considering the amount of years you had this as your avatar, I thought this asset ended up as abandonware. I would have never assumed that not just I see it confirmed as a finished asset, but a public one even.

Great work nonetheless.

I don't have motivation for proper OpenRA checks, so I just leave some practical tips regarding this asset on that engine - using the no-unlight palette masking setup for the theater colors would allow giving it transparency/blending to better blend the dust and allow it to link with GrantConditionOnTerrain to prevent the effect on inappropriate terrain (say, roads). One also needs to either resort to Combine tricks or reorder the art frames because the TS 32-frames hack starts with a nonstandard facing (the last facing is N, so four blocks of Combine per art entry should do the trick - one block for N frames, followed by all other frames, one block for N shadow and one block for the remaining shadow, then drop ShadowStart into the main block after the combination is done). RenderSprites-Scale seems to be fixed by now and AFAIK relies on the upscale shader, so if the target project uses a different cellsize than TS's, it's probably better to rely on that one.

A really great MK2 model. How did you make the beam on which the "ball" flies?

railgun modified to make the particles
-appear in a straight line
-fewer particles in total
-pixel particles disabled and AlphaImage added to the particle instead
The AlphaImage is the main effect and simple 20x20 pixel big shp, with a very soft alphalight circle (colorindex around 135 in the center of the circle going down to 127 at the outer end)

Also a blue laser line is enabled on the railgun.

The very soft AlphaImage circle shown alone ingame, wouldn't give much of an effect, but the many particles causing them to overlap each other, give the Alpha a cumulative effect and cause the many circles to end up like a line of brightness.

there you go (see attachment)
Couldn't use the texture and animation/effect directly on a sphere, so had to do several changes.
