Cosmetic Doom 1.8 is up!

For high-res texture/sprite projects, sprite-fix patches, music add-ons, music randomizers, and other graphic/sound-only projects.
Forum rules
The Projects forums are only for projects. If you are asking questions about a project, either find that project's thread, or start a thread in the General section instead.

Got a cool project idea but nothing else? Put it in the project ideas thread instead!

Projects for any Doom-based engine (especially 3DGE) are perfectly acceptable here too.

Please read the full rules for more details.

This still happens in 1.4. I tried to fix the height of the spawned lensflare, but could no get the flare to spawn in the correct postion. :(

couple of remarks:

Imp projectile is too big and has very crude tail effect. A visual offender for me ;)
the fake lens flare on the torches is totally overdone.
plasma projectile is more like a stream not individual balls.
rocket impact looks not good.
spider plasma has weird shape and looks oddly static.

Is this the lamp post you speak of?

This is highly susceptible to sprite clipping adjustment settings.

Usually i play with the 'smarter' sprite clip setting. With Cosmetic Doom it looks like as you can see in the pictures.
I also tried the other sprite clip modes and in none of them the lens flare really fits. Most of the time it ends on top of the lamp post sprite.

Ok, I checked these out. Sorry, but I have absolutely no idea why this is happening for you. I was experimenting with settings and the only time, when I was close to replicating this bug, is when I set the sprite clipping adjustment to never. But, as you say, you have it set to smart, and with smart it looks the best on my PC. I'll look for some help.

Maybe you can check Doom Expanded or Particle Fire Enhancer. The flares in these mods are fine for me.

This works perfectly with the 'smart' clipping mode. What do you have changed ?

With the 'smarter' clipping mode, the flares are still a bit out of place (below the intended spot), but no flares over the head of the lamp sprites anymore. Thanks.

The lights are a great improvement. Well done. :)

Do you think you'll have time to update the individual builds at all? No worries if you can't, I still appreciate your work. It's a perma-load for me regardless. :)

Just tweaked the numbers a bit. Great to hear it works.

I will update them, don't worry.
