Altered Short Circuit Effects

An Effect Mod for Team Fortress 2

My attempt at making the Short Circuit's "lightning ball" effect less visually obstructive (for both the shooter and their targets), yet still pretty to look at. Also includes new particles for the primary fire beam that you'll probably never use anyway!


Overview of Features

  • Replacements for the following short circuit particle effects:
    • Primary fire.
    • Secondary fire lightning ball projectile.
    • Player/projectile hit effects for the lightning ball.
  • [Optional] An alternate version of the mod that includes a really hacky, buggy """fix""" that removes the generic spark effect that spawns every time the lightning ball hits a player or projectile. This is the version of the mod shown in the preview screenshots/video.
    • BE AWARE: this will also inadvertently remove some similar spark effects in the game! Examples being the sparks of the default metal bullet impact effect, the sparks emitted by the disintegration effect for the Cow Mangler/Righteous Bison/Short Circuit, etc. See the README included in the download for more info.


Potential Compatibility Issues

This mod replaces the particle file dxhr_fx.pcf, which contains various particle effects used by the Short Circuit, Machina, etc. Thus, other mods that replace the same PCF file (such as a mod that changes the Machina’s tracer effect) will be incompatible with this one.


Installation

Paste the VPK of your choice (either the standard version of the mod, or the version that includes the hacky spark removal) into your “custom” folder in your TF2 directory. You only need to install one VPK or the other, not both.
