Hello,

I have a very unimportant and ultra low priority suggestion, which is multiple explosion animations.

What?
There will be different explosion animations in different folders in sparks-gfx/explosion folder.
Like sparks-gfx/explosion/1/ , sparks-gfx/explosion/2/ and so on.
Client will choose one of them randomly and play it for explosion.

Why?
Because its so ugly to see same graphics side to side when there are more than one explosion at the same time.
(Our explosion animation is so ugly too...)
And we want to make soldat more beautiful.

---

I also support that Soldat needs a fully new graphical modification.
Of course we also will be able to choose the old one via "run soldat modded" option that we already have.

New graphics must be more attractive for new players.
They must say "woah!" instead of "this is ugly, I will play Battlefield 3 instead" ^^

Personally, I think it's a great idea. More visual customisation is always a good thing in my book.

Another thing I'd like is to have separate images for jet smoke and the LAW trail, it always bothered me that they use the same image file.

What do you mean smiluu? Hmm, i saw nice explosion effect in somebody's signature picture.
+ It would be great to finally make animations not with multiple images, but with multiple frames in one image, but yeah - it would require some deep engine rewrite.

I don't see any harm in that, though personally I rarely pay attention to explosion graphics. What I'd prefer more is to have a PNG support for such effects, so that explosions and smoke would look smoother. Or wait.. there already is PNG support, isnt there?

Different explosion gfx for grenade, Law and M79 explosion would be nice for modding because sometimes you want to have a different explosion type for sci-fi weapons.

That also would be great.

And my suggestion should be really easy to implement. I suppose a few line of code will be enough.

I never want to see anything like this in soldat:

While I think something like this suits soldat better:

The explosion we have now seems to be chopped and cut from a live explosion clip frame by frame. Somebody should take the challenge and animate us a new explosion in pixel art.
