View Full Version : Request: Explosion Experiment

04-23-2011, 11:00 PM
I want to experiment in making cheap, good-looking effects in Alice.

For this, I need objects like the ones in the picture below.

I need at least 5 them to be sub-parts of one object.

Can anyone help?

jediaction, Arty-fishL or debuss might be able to help.
Ask them.
I know debuss can convert objects.
And i think Arty can too.

I wasn't too sure how you wanted them, but here they are anyway. A mini square, invisible, and a larger square, untextured, both centred on an axis in the middle. Then 5 times that in one object.

The mini square and larger square are separate subparts on the main object, I don't know if you want them in their own subpart? I vehicled all of the mini squares to the larger ones.

The mini squares just have an opacity of 0. I'm not sure how well the objects will texture.

The subparts are randomly placed, because I didn't have a clue how you wanted them placed, but you can position them yourself in Alice.

Here you go:

Thanks arty-fishL! This is exactly what I needed!

But can you fix the texture problem with the squares? I tried to put a texture on it, but it doesn't look right.

Right, I will get onto it tomorrow, it probably just needs textured properly in sketchup. Then it should save the texture positioning details.
