Inspired by this thread, I've thought of the following request. Could you make a new animation for the missing speed powerup? I had an idea of a spinning wheel (sideways, not perspective) that would suddenly accelerate, maybe creating smoke, sparks or even flames? Maybe something similar to this.

I'll add that to the TS remakes list.

looks very cool. The colors and animation is great.
However the inner detail size is too big. It makes it look like a small flame very close to the camera and not a big flame very far away from the camera.
Can you increase the number of inner details and also make the inner details smaller, like break up the big flame more into many smaller flames?

Right now i would say it only works when resized down to 30% so it can fit to a normal TS/RA2 flame thrower infantry, which then has a close 1 cell range attack.

Looks great but since the flame source continues so long, this only seems applicable to something that doesn't rotate away quickly, and likewise against a target that doesn't move quickly too.

I would like to see this at 2/3 scale where the flame source gives out sooner...

Yeah, while this looks great, in the vanilla games (not sure about ORA), it's not very practical and might look bad if the unit shooting the flame starts moving (i.e. when its target moves outside its range); the firing anim sticks to the unit and moves along with it #Tongue

Hmm, could you also render one with a lighter smoke or none at all? I tested this in Tiberian Sun and the dark smoke looks rather out of place. It could be just a matter of taste, though.

Use it as a Firing animation, and depending on how many faces it has, code the Artmd.ini with Facings=**,And don't forget the Frames!! and as for the firing anim, MAKE SURE YOU ADJUST THE FLH OF YOUR TURRET/UNIT/INFANTRY, or else it would look weird...

EDIT #1: Make a new Weapon too!! (Duh?)

I had the same thing with long files. Just wait a minute or two and it should be imported. It depends on your computer, I think. Do not touch it while it imports.

I was able to make a SHP out of it fine with XCC Mixer, but SHP builder I ran out of memory as well with 8gb of ram. I feel like there may be a limit in SHP Builder as to how much it will allocate, but 2gb is really not much. Anyway, batch recoloring the blue to pink on all the images then using XCC Mixer to make it into a SHP should work.

EDIT: Annoying, but managed it all in XCC Mixer.

It only took few minutes with SHP Builder for me, but it takes far less time
with LKO's ImageShaper.

I believe you need to divide it into 32 files....

You can create them from 1 file like:
[FLAME03_NNW]
Image=flame03_01_
Start=0
End=9
Rate=500

[FLAME03_N]
Image=flame03_01_
Start=10
End=19
Rate=500

etc.

Doesn't actually work, not in RA2/YR at least. Believe those keys only get used with animations that play more than one loop, if even then.

Start, End should work fine. I would be very surprised if they messed up these working keys when adding RA2 stuff to the TS engine.

Some of the vanilla RA2 anims even use them (without the Loop* keys), like NAIRON_FD

LoopStart and LoopEnd are only used for defining the loops start and end frame, but not where the SHP should start or end playing. For that are Start and End, which are by default Start=0 and End=#frames_in_SHP.
