Hello,

I saw the servers coming back, and thought to fix up some custom particles/effects I had laying around unused (as well as made couple new ones, Glowing Halo is ripped straight from TF2 however.)

The effect's Im suggesting are both for when player gets gibbed (a la smash box, slope prop, maybe even excessive fall damage from being flung to space in Sanctuary), as well as some new rare effects unique to MoronYard. Feel free to voice your suggestions and/or (mostly) complaints, and say what you think.

In order of appearance;
Glowing Halo, Golden Shower (or Make It Rain), Circling Crate/Robo Crate/Spooky Crate, Lord of Flies, Skeleton Dance, Night Fever (Already adjusted the thickness of clouds after making video), Poison Cloud, and Burning Star.

The bloody mess is the suggested gibbing effect, which would hopefully simulate the instant crushing death which happens oh so often to unfortunate players on the servers  ;)

Some of these are very good, but some of them look too much like some of the current effects. Pretty good though overall.

I really like the disco skeleton effect, very inventive.

I thought that one was already a tf2 effect?

Did few adjustments. As far as I know, the two biggest offenders were both Glowing Halo (Now removed as it apparently already was in-game), as well as Poison Cloud which I edited. For some reason it refuses to make the little skulls fall unless alt-tabbing, but should be fixable.

On top of that, adjusted the size of the gibbing particle, should be about 75% or so of the original size.

I think you are referring to Death By Disco (as shown below). The Skeleton Dance is a new effect, albeit similar to DBD.

Yes, thanks for clearing that up for me.
