Stargate Hyperspace

Post by Tomes » Sun Nov 04, 2012 7:38 am

Hello everyone, I'm looking for a way to create a hyperspace weapon. Like the slipstream drive weapon. But the conduit or effect is on its side at a 90 degree angle. So it looks like the hyperspace window effect. Any ideas on this?

I have already tried this and it was completely impossible.

The Star Wars vs. Star Trek mod at www.armada2files.com has a Hyperspace drive that in a way changed warp speed for Armada 2 going faster, but there is no Hyperspace effect since warp and how it works is hard coded in both Armada and Armada 2.

If you mean on its side as in, the "wormhole" is tilted 90 deg, then you would have to modify the SOD. This will only affect the slipstream/wormhole graphic, and not the actual entry path into the slipstream.

You can of course use the "transwarp" weapon to achieve the same. The graphic is already more or less "tilted" 90deg to the side. Really just need a higher resolution texture with animation to make it look like a slipstream entry. If you want someone to help you with this, just post away :)

It's not possible to do that in A1/A2 other than the nasty directionally challenged transwarpdrive ordnance, but it is possible in Fleet Operations using the ReplaceWeapon + animation.
