NEW VERSION! redownload from here:

I was getting tired of seeing the same old image for every primary weapon in the game, so I made ones for each damage type. This download will NOT replace any weapon images; I have yet to do the grunt work involved in that. (If anyone wants to do that, definitely feel free :D)

I have yet to make alien versions of these for Iocrym ships to use (really I only need an alien version of the Plasma cannon, since it's the only type that Iocrym weapons use right now)- I probably won't make alien versions of blast and particle weapons, and definitely not laser and kinetic since by the time you fight aliens (only Iocrym for now) you're probably immune to laser and kinetic anyway.

I also didn't know what do do for the dark matter/energy types, so I left those alone. I might do versions for those as well should the need arise.

I'll probably make Iocrym versions of the dark types tomorrow. For now, I need some sleep. Midterms are terrible.

These are quite stunning. I think I saw the prototypes on IRC, but the finals here look amazing!

Since I've already modified some weapons via my own Zanitas & Lazarus mod, I decided to stick Shivan Hunter's dock screen images (including the Iocrym ones) into my mod and see what happens. Here's a sample of how it turned out:

Keep in mind that only the weapons that are modified by the current release of Zanitas & Lazarus on Xelerus will have their dock screen images changed to Shivan Hunter's new ones.

Hmm. Would look much better with an 8bit bitmask, but unfortunately that won't work for device icons in the 'b' menu...

Anyway, thanks! Seeing my stuff used is awesome :D And I think I will do uniques for the Ares archcannon and Lamplighter archcannon... The regular plasma gun looks a bit crude for the Ares superweapon.

I know that it might be rude... but can you make the gfx compatible with SF item gfx Androgeos?
The reason being that though these graphics are really cool I see them more for boss weapons, and SF items has some nice unique graphics for each weapon such as the hanzo blaster, and the omnidirectional versions.

If it can't be done, that's fine, I'd just like to be able to use both mods instead of just one.

...um, I assume you mean StelliFer Laboratories, which is by SiaFu. what do you mean by "make it compatible"? What I'm planning (in the long-term) is a gfx overhaul similar to SiaFu's, which means it is inherently incompatible.

You are of course welcome to make a mod that uses some of my stuff and some of SiaFu's, but that would have to be done manually, and it would be a separate mod.
