Title: Windblown's fx: Polaris
Post by: windblown on March 17, 2013, 10:44:18 PM
Hey guys,
Iīve been working on some fxs for Pixie to celebrate my collaboration with Podmark to get the character done (donít miss the preview on Podmarkís skins thread!).

Here are the results of my attempts:

(http://i1300.photobucket.com/albums/ag94/Windblow85/Pixiefxs2_zps682eb313.jpg)

They are a teleport self spell, a pixie dust cone and a teleport others spell.

As I've said to you already, these are really cool.

These effects will be included when the Pixie skins and skope are released.

Title: Windblown's fx: State swap effects
Post by: windblown on April 27, 2013, 09:16:35 PM
Thanks guys,

Iíve made two minor fx. The first one is to be used with FFX ďsleep state swapĒ, so the sleeping character shows those ZzZ while he is sleeping. The second one is to change the effect that shows when a character gets possessed. This last one tries to represent Karmaís psychic energy, as she is the only character with a possession power in my game. This effect will appear in the possessed character's head instead of Tombstone's tiny skulls.

Post by: windblown on January 29, 2015, 01:06:51 AM
Itís been a long time since Iíve updated this thread, but today I bring you a bunch of wind FX to go with the updated skope of Wind dancer:

Preview (http://s1300.photobucket.com/user/Windblow85/media/wind%20dancer%20v2_zpskswzuxlq.mp4.html)

I think that the third one is the only one that needs explanation, it's a melee FX (Wind dancer could fire compressed air into an enemyís eardrums to cause him vertigo). My favorite one is the cone FX.
Title: Re: Windblown's fx: Wind-dancing

Wow, winblown you have blown my mind (sorry for the pun  :D). Where can i download your fx? I think i have the Pixie pack but i would also like the rest.

Thank you guys!

Wow, winblown you have blown my mind (sorry for the pun  :D). Where can i download your fx? I think i have the Pixie pack but i would also like the rest.

Pixie FX pack was released with Pixie skope in Heroforce (Podmark's section), Bling! FX was released with Bling! skope (at the same site), Wind Dancer FX pack will be released with the updated skope there too, but I still have to pack them up and send them to Podmark so he can do some small skin adjustments.

In fact, Podmark and me are collaborating to bring these New X-men characters to FF, so all my skopes and FX for them will be released at his page together with his skins.

Nice work WB!  I like the character packs, but the little touches of the state swaps are really cool.
Title: Re: Windblown's fx: Wind-dancing
Post by: windblown on March 23, 2015, 12:44:33 AM
New FX to go with my last skopes:

(http://i1300.photobucket.com/albums/ag94/Windblow85/th_Tag%20Wither%20and%20Icarus%20FX_zps2jgxiajv.mp4) (http://i1300.photobucket.com/albums/ag94/Windblow85/Tag%20Wither%20and%20Icarus%20FX_zps2jgxiajv.mp4)

- The first FX represents Tagís psionic ability to make people run away from a person (the thug runs away from Wither here), he would say, "Tag, you're it" when he used his powers on someone, so Iíve added that text to the FX.

- The second FX represents Witherís death touch. Iíve skoped an animation for Wither where he takes off one of his gloves to use with this FX.

- The last one represents Icarusí angelic voice, which was used on one occasion to calm down a panicked Lockheed.
Title: Re: Windblown's fx: Tag-Wither-Icarus
Post by: spydermann93 on March 23, 2015, 12:50:02 AM
Those are really neat, windblown!

Non-FX Related Question: And how did you make the Thug run away from another character?  At first, I thought that it was just an area attack, but you make it seem like Tag gave Wither an ability or something like that.
Title: Re: Windblown's fx: Tag-Wither-Icarus
Post by: windblown on March 23, 2015, 12:56:20 AM
Thanks spyder!

I gave Tag a panic melee attack with a 360ļ radius which only affects enemies so if he uses it in Wither, enemies will run away from him (kind of, because the thug is just panicked but the effect is similar to Tag's powers) while Wither is unaffected.
Title: Re: Windblown's fx: Tag-Wither-Icarus
Post by: spydermann93 on March 23, 2015, 12:58:46 AM
Ah, ok!

That's a pretty clever way to use a power! :D

Yeah, the glove effect is a really nice touch. Some very cool FX here Windblown.

Thank you guys,
New FX pack for Wallflower, the pheromone manipulator of the New Mutants squad:

She could manipulate the emotions of others, making them sleepy, in love, scaredÖ This pack contains three different FX (as shown at the video).

Post by: Cyber Burn on April 01, 2015, 05:02:28 AM
Very nice WindBlown, just out of curiosity, is the mist/smoke around her part of the Skope, or part of the FX?
Title: Re: Windblown's fx: Tag-Wither-Icarus
Post by: windblown on April 03, 2015, 03:04:37 PM
Itís just an FX that Iíve made to be used with the ĎPheromone Fieldí attribute. It pops from time to time during the game.
Title: Re: Windblown's fx: Tag-Wither-Icarus
Post by: windblown on November 03, 2015, 12:18:45 AM
Iíve been playing with some FX and Nifskope and discovered that we can make the effects to last more time, so Iíve used this new information to make some temporal bubbles for Tempus and now they last during the time that her enemies are frozen in time:

(http://i1300.photobucket.com/albums/ag94/Windblow85/th_Tempus%20FX_zpswfq6dsit.mp4) (http://i1300.photobucket.com/albums/ag94/Windblow85/Tempus%20FX_zpswfq6dsit.mp4)

The last fx previewed is to be used with a teleport power to represent her ability to travel in time.
Title: Re: Windblown's fx: Nature girl and the bamfs
Post by: windblown on December 18, 2015, 07:26:01 PM
Hereís a preview of Nature Girl during gameplay:

(http://i1300.photobucket.com/albums/ag94/Windblow85/th_Nature%20Girl%20FX_zpsztilcixz.mp4) (http://i1300.photobucket.com/albums/ag94/Windblow85/Nature%20Girl%20FX_zpsztilcixz.mp4)

In the first FX she calls for a bird to help her (this is my favorite one), in the second one she calls for a swarm of bees. The last animation shows her summoning a couple of bamfs to fight along her.

Post by: Jimaras8 on December 19, 2015, 07:44:13 AM
Windblown you are the John Williams of Keyframes. And i'm 100% serious. How did you pull off the teleporting bamfs attack? They blinked the thug away right?

Thanks everybody!  ^_^

Windblown you are the John Williams of Keyframes. And i'm 100% serious. How did you pull off the teleporting bamfs attack? They blinked the thug away right?

Nature Girl has the Summoner attribute, so she can summon a Bamf. Iíve given to the Bamf skope a ranged animation where he disappears for a while. In game thatís the animation Iíve selected for a ďteleport otherĒ power, so it looks like heís teleporting the enemy away. Glad you liked it.
Title: Re: Windblown's fx: Dazzling lights
Post by: windblown on April 05, 2016, 04:03:46 PM
I've been playing with Nifskope to make some fx light up their surroundings, I thought that Dazzler would be a perfect character to try them:

:thumbup: Those are really amazing WB! It really adds to the effect.  What was happening to the thug when he was in the corner,  it looked like he was in a stun loop of some sort.

That fx represents Dazzler ability of "creating a chaotic cascade of sparkling lights and colors that severely upsets other peopleís equilibrium", I use it with a ranged grapple power.
Title: Re: Windblown's fx: Negasonic Teenage Warhead
Post by: windblown on July 03, 2016, 10:40:47 PM
Here's a new fx I've made for daglob's Negasonic Teenage Warhead, an X-men student who appears in the Deadpool film as Colossus sidekick. Unlike her comics counterpart, who was a telepath/precognitive mutant, this version of the character has some kind of nuclear explosion powers which she uses to charge at her enemies with great power:

Thaks guys, I'm trying to make the characters that I skope different from each other through the fx/animations.


Btw, Network's fxs have been expanded:

(http://i1300.photobucket.com/albums/ag94/Windblow85/th_Network%20fxs_zps9uxkxnex.mp4) (http://i1300.photobucket.com/albums/ag94/Windblow85/Network%20fxs_zps9uxkxnex.mp4)

These powers should be used only in mechanical enemies, so she can control them, paralyze them or discharge their batteries. The last one of the video is the one where she summons the Blackbird for help that I previewed some weeks ago.

First she expands her forcefield to push away the thugs, then she shapes it into a spiky forcefield and the last one is a passive defense.

I have a beam for focused, long range attacks, but I was looking for a short range, wide angle optic burst. Basically a cone shaped attack. And a general optic blast, wider than the focused beam, yet not as wide as the optic burst, for medium range, medium strength attacks

WB and LP, the skope it top notch as always. I have already cooked a hero file for Reyes if anyone iss interested, i just have a couple of questions for WB. In your preview video for her FX did you use fast or normal swiftness for her cone ability? Also that specific FX can only be used from a short range and with extreme/wide angle?
Title: Re: Windblown's fx: Polaris
Post by: windblown on August 08, 2021, 11:03:20 PM
Itís been almost 5 years since my last fx, but yesterday I was toying with Nifskope again and I thought of doing a different fx for Polaris to give her more versatility in game. My herofiles for her was mainly electric attacks and forcefields, so I thought of adding some metal bender action and this is what I've got:

https://i.imgur.com/Ql3Cj8F.mp4

Now, she uses her magnetic powers to bring a metal beam from the distance upon her enemies.
