No real reason, but I sometimes find the triple damage artifact a bit... static. Nothing showy or anything, except for the animating surface. Just an idea, make it rotate like the UDamage. Just make something that extends ArtifactTripleDamagePickup and add the following lines of code:
Code:
 defaultproperties
 {
      Physics=PHYS_Rotating
      RotationRate=(Yaw=24000)
 }


And that should do it. Then change the artifact name in UT2004RPG.ini to whatever yours was named, and you're set. In fact, you may want to have all artifacts spin like that, I dunno.

Another idea is to have the Triple Damage artifact (or all artifacts) be instant-use, but not use Adrenaline, just have a set time limit.

Also, I made a mod to my Triple Damage in KohanRPG that, instead of having the UDamage counter be 99999, actually show the time remaining based on how much Adrenaline you have and how fast the artifact eats it up. Rather useful, actually. Gives you a more informed answer of 'how long do I have?' 20 seconds is easier to understand than 140 adrenaline.

So yeah, keep these ideas in mind.

I've always wanted that to happen!

Nice to know my idea is appreciated. I've got the mod ready for you if you need it. By you I mean anyone who controls the server.

Can the tripple be made a different color in the artifact display? Too many time I've gone to use it only to find I used the Magic Weapon Maker.






You mean I really am important? How I feel when I'm drunk is correct?

I'm old and can't remember, all I know is I and others get them mixed up a lot.

Its blue in the game when lying on the floor, but is the same color in the HUD as the triple damage (purple). Or at least that's whats rendered on my screen.

If at first you don't friccasee, fry, fry a hen.

Ah, I see. Well, unfortunately enough for me, I don't know how to extract textures from packages, nor do I have even a mediocre program to make a new icon with. In my opinion, I think the icons could use a makeover, Stuff that really looks good, like what relics look like on the HUD in ChaosUT2. They look so... anti-ooh-ahh. And they're small and not well-placed on the screen. They should be put somewhere that makes sense, like next to Adrenaline or something.

If you wanted to change the color yourself, just open up the editor, and the RPG texture package, it should be in there. in the texture browser there is an option to export as a .dds. and if your image program can't read .dds, just print screen and put it into gimp or something, and "colorize" it or whatever.
this is to kohan btw, we will only be able to get it blue if dru changes it.

Uh-huh, okay, so say I export it and PrintScreen it to Paint. How do I import it again?

By the way, can everyone see my signature image? Someone couldn't see it on some other forums, though I do. It should look like ripples in an anonymous purple fluid.

I can Photoshop like a fool, I'd be down if Druid wanted some new stuff

If we are talking about importing textures into UED, you'll need to save them as .BMP (other formats work better but Paint doesn't support 'em) then open up the texture editor and import the new textures...

In the texture browsert, File>Import. Take note that the picture has to be 64x64, 128x128, etc. But it should be already if you only changed the color.

...Wow! That's way easier than I thought!
Update: Well, I made a mod. It is now a bluish-cyan color. Merely a color change from the original, though. Want the updated texture pack, Druid?
