    Well for one, I don't know anything about coding.

    For two, I don't think teta's nuke uses the '07 particle system for its effects.

    And while teta's nuke works, I feel it would be possible to make it work better. Modifying how the shockwave hits objects, having it ignite things when the explosion goes off, stuff like that.
    I could probably get Teta's nuke to spawn an OB particle effect...

    I want this nuke realistic, if it is then I'll love it.

    And I recommend making the nuke blinding bright when it goes off, since looking directly at a nuclear explosion will make you go blind. (From what I've read some people went blind after the U.S dropped the bombs on Japan because they had looked directly at the explosion)
    Nice!! It would be possible to simulate retinal burns (jesus christ roflmao), you just imprint the fireball/flash as a dark spot in the vision that dosen't go away until you die! And i mean a huge black hole around where the fireball burned your eyes. That and catching on fire might make people respect nuclear weapons more like they should.

    This is a really good looking nuke. If everything suggested goes into effect, I shouldn't show this to my friend, or he'll be launching about 10 every 3 minutes.

    It's very nice, only thing I can see that you need to improve on is more black smoke around the base of the explosion. Other than that I love it.

    Oh god its awesome. Can't wait till it get's released, I want to see that particle system you made :D
    Good luck and keep up the good work!
    Also you should keep some glow in the mushroomcloud instead of just fire. Not to much, like Teta's, but a little bit to make the smoke glow a bit.

    Vman, did you use lua particles or are you using the particle editor? Also, I recommend you add a shockwave.

    You could always put up a request in the Lua Request area. You have the particles ready, so I am sure someone will be able to put them to good use. I think a "Nuke Stool" would be most appropriate because of the customization options such as Power/Force/Size/De-constraints Props/Etc. Then just use the stool on any type of prop to turn it into a nuke. Clean and simple, and you can still add Wire functionality.

    On a serious note, there are too many teta nuke addons with "fixes and updates", most of which are just changes to the number of models to choose from in the entities tab, and who knows what else. Better to start from scratch no?

    I mentioned earlier that I already tried the lua section, but was ignored :C

    If you want help making a schvexy youtube video advertising this, I'd be happy to lend I hand. I've been stalking this thread for a while now, and cannot wait. I have FRAPS, a beefy computer for 1080p videos, and I've used After Effects, Premiere, and I've got too much time on my hands. So uh... yeah, I'm pretty much just looking for an excuse to make a video with a shit-ton of nuclear explosions. Keep us posted

    Use source recorder so there's absolutely no lag.

    Damn, I wanted to code this for him. The problem with teta_bonita's code is that it doesn't work through world brushes because IIRC it uses blast damage from a single point.

    Also is making particles this way easier? The Lua emitter style is difficult to get the effect looking pretty.

    I don't think it works with Garry's Mod (yet, at least).

    But I'll look into it. The source recorder allows for a lot of awesome cool effects, like motion blur and advanced DOF, which makes for some awesome videos.

    Edited:

    I would think so. The tool that comes with the Orange Box for making particle effects allows you to see you effect in real time as you make it, rather than doing guess work with lua. It still takes an awful lot of skill.

    Very nice, you should add a pulling back vacuum style effect. Since nukes suck up a lot of air to compensate for the fire and etc. But really cool.
