    Hey Fellas, :nuke: :nuke:

    I've always been annoyed by the ugly look of the ingame nuke, so I've changed a few things to make it look more realistic and threatening

    Here's a link to a little video which shows the difference between the old nuke (first one) and the new nuke (second one)

    Video (right klick, save target as ..)

    let me know what you guys think about it :)

    Now if you could just incorporate the old 'air raid siren' noise from Civ past into this it would be perfect. :D

    Mmm, there's a air raid siren mp3 available somewhere. I think Dearmad uploaded it.

    Sorry, but it's easier in German! :crazyeye:

    Kannst Du mir einen Gefallen tun? Kannst Du für mich die Lenkrakete (bzw. Marschflugkörper) modifizieren? Ich brauche für den [CCV]-Mod eine taktische Lenkrakete. Ich habe zu diesem Zweck die Dateien der Guided_Missile übernommen und die Guided_Missile_MD_StrikeA.kf durch die Tactical_Nuke_MD_StrikeA.kf ersetzt. Das hat aber kleine Mängel. :(

    1.) Die taktische Lenkrakete weist nicht das für nukleare Waffen typische Glühen auf.
    2.) Die Lenkrakete fällt nun vom Himmel, bevor sie den süßen kleinen Atompilz hervorbringt.
    3.) Der Atompilz dürfte etwas größer ausfallen. Eben so wie bei der taktischen Nuke, aber bitte ohne an der Größe des Flugkörpers selber etwas zu ändern.

    So ist das natürlich bisher Mist. Kannst Du helfen?

    I just tested this in-game, with "We'll Meet Again" playing in the background, Strangelove style! :D It's excellent.

    A couple of questions. First, what codec did you use to make the movie? I can't play it.

    Second, how do I implement your new nuke effect? I see no instructions anywhere...

    the video is in DivX codec

    simply copy all files to either "./custom assets/art/effects/explosion_nuke"
    or "./assets/art/effects/explosion_nuke"

    There is no existing folder.

    Do you have to create a new folder in effects called 'explosion_nuke'

    Also, I do not have a custom assets folder either.

    The existing folder is under the Assets/Art/Effects folder structure of Civ4, not BtS.

    I am honestly not trying to be difficult...

    There was no nuke_explosion folder in the Civ4 structure either. The only folder that was in there was the 'work_dig' folder.

    There is no nuke folder in there, that is stored in one of the CIV-fpks (don't ask me which one).

    In the mod however, you will need to create that folder and place the files there.

    Have you ever unpacked the civ4 fpk files? The art is stored in those.

    WOW! I finally got it to work (had to put it in the Beyond the Sword customassets directory structure, not original Civ). At any rate, it's awesome!
