Sorry for bumping, but I think I know how we can make the Sphere sprites to Voxels.

1. Install Slab 6
2. Create a new CUBE model.
3. Save the CUBE model.
4. Start coloring.
5. Job done!!!

I already did some spheres, but the thing is, they look like painted balls, and not glass spheres with something inside them they are supposed to be, so I left them be.
also I have no idea in how to paint their backs

all the 3D models i've seen of Doom made the spheres simply face you all the time, as if it were still a sprite. maybe the voxel spheres could be made to always face you, too?

Facing voxels would be an interesting way to solve that problem. Maybe worth a feature suggestion for VOXELDEF, like the rotation options.

The one that is called "Hellspawn + Voxelbro" is actually for the default game. :mrgreen:

Spheres should stay 2d. Even Quake used 2d sprites when spheres were used as decoration.

And make them rotate so they don't look weird!

is it possible to make a voxel object transparent? If so, a modification for the sphere actor sould be done, with one actor (a head) inside another (sphere)

Trasparent voxels are bad looking, because the border of the cubes it is made of doesn't becomes transparent. Ironicaly, it is the only way I know to make zdoom display the borders.

you people are forgeting it would still look like a painting and not glass

Could you show me a screenshot of a 0.75 and 0.5 transparent voxel, just for fun?

Another idea I think of is what Metroid Prime Hunters does for energy pickups: a 3D actor (or, in this case, a voxel) with a sprite "aura". For this case: the voxel actor would be the head, and it would constantly generate a sprite actor with +FORCEXYBILLBOARD that would serve as the "sphere" around it.

Shame i'm no good with making voxels... Else I'd try doing this for fun :<

Color them just like the front side, but without the face.
