Have you ever wanted to see a smash character's guarding animation in all their glory? To witness proper epic battles and blocks without the colored shield obscuring the fun? Well this is the Mod for you!
This mod tells the game to stop using shield textures, but all the other clash effects remain, allowing for more dynamic fights.
This mod unfortunately, does prevent you from accurately knowing the size of your shield. However, it still definitely looks amazing and in my personal opinion, it didn't have a major impact on how I played, and I thought the trade off was worth it.
It also makes for some really fun pictures! (Particularly making Ryu look like he's from street fighter even more). So go crazy!
Feel free to include this in your Mod Packs, but please credit me if you do so, this took a whole heap of testing to make work.
UPDATE: Options are now available for how much of the Shield texture and effects you want removed! See the file directory for details.
Hey! I really like your ideas, you have made shield effects that are really unique. I was wondering if you could consider creating some sort of smoke removal mod, for running, rolling and landing. Thank you so much.
I'm not sure if this is possible with effect modding yet, but I think a neat way to visualize shield health would be to have the character become darker over time, similar to how Yoshi's shield works.
I would download if that was added. Also, to prevent confusion, you should change the title to show that this does not remove shields entirely, it only removes the coloured bubble effect around your character.
