Today I was playing with a Photoshop (my sister helped me because I'm green in PS) and remade orginal Soldat things too looks smoother. Here you have mod.



Notice that these are orginal Soldat parts. I only remade 'em a bit.

All credits goes to orginal authors.

1.4.1 - yes. "Almost" (I didn't tried all) all files can be in .png

No. Is there a sense to do it? It depends from map is it smooth or not.

I've extensively tested (and used) 1.4.1's PNG support, and I can tell you this:

- Interface graphics fully support PNGs
- PNGs appear to require a correspondingly-named BMP in order to be loaded
- There seems to be a bug with PNG resizing/resampling:
   o PNG versions of weapons-gfx and menu weapons (in the kill-log) will have a "plastic film" around them, so BMP is still the best format for those
- Gosteks fully support PNGs
- Sparks fully support PNGs
- All object-textures DO NOT support PNGs. This includes all flag and box textures.
- PNG Alpha-T stacks with Soldat's automatic antialiasing; therefore fuzzy stuff generally appear even fuzzier in-game

In the end, PNG support as of 1.4.1 is a mixed blessing. PNG isn't suitable for all applications, but PNG does have is uses and is incredibly useful when it can be applied well.

Anyways, nice job Pafel. The PNG-heavy mods will be the "next generation" of Soldat mods.

Nice mod the explosion looks great. I have also have a "PNG" mod but it's not finished yet.

You should be able to get rid off the border by making all non transparent pixels black or same color as outside of weapon/spark because it uses those pixels to calculate the pixels of the resized image.

you can see on the mp5 there's a green smudge around weapon in kill console cause some pixels are still lime green.

Espadon and Serial K!ller. I understand what are you talking about. You mean that little, half-transparent a bit green line around guns on kill-log.

You should be able to get rid off the border by making all non transparent pixels black or same color as outside of weapon/spark because it uses those pixels to calculate the pixels of the resized image.

Hmm... But with that mod I didn't use that standard lime-green. I just deleted all background. So it's not green. I think that this green line around guns is Soldat resizing "bug" (it's not really bug).

If you delete background the color doesnt change it just gets transparent, you have to fill with black first and then delete.
Open then interface weapons with paint and you'll see the green bits.

Exactily the one named "guns" :) If you'll put it to your mods folder and start with Soldat Starter it will run with the new ones.

Make sure antialiasing is set to OFF and tolerance set to 0 when wanding the green areas.
