Prepare your eyes! Sins of a Solar Empire has not seen a good completely original dedicated particle mod since Bailknight's Graphical Mod, (Dynamic Explosions was a part of that, before anyone says anything) and I prepare to change that with my complete Particle Conversion mod intended for SoaSE: Rebellion. Because the mod will have a checksum of 0, it will be compatible with any mod that does not replace the Explosions.Explosiondata file.
Drkrun's Particle ReForge for Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion
It's a work in progress, but here is the second iteration, finishing off most of the Abilities, Buffs, CapitalAbilities, CapitalBuffs, and DamageEffects.
Gamefront decided to stop accepting my files :/ Mega it is!
Feel free to give feedback! Broken textures, laggy bits, etc.
Horrible looks, whatever.
Keep in mind that the over-arching goals of this mod are:
-Decrease lag on weapons and certain spammable abilities in large quantities
-Make the game look different but still cool
-Make ability effects more readable from a distance, fight-warping ones especially. (example: I hate the fact that the Rapture's Vengeance is impossible to see from a distance)
