Fear Effect

This is an effect inspired by and meant to be Fear from wow, cast by Warlocks, Priests, Warriors, Paladins.

Edit 3: Removed the previous and added the model with real WoW's skull.
I couldn't deal with the actual wow texture, because it's complicated,so I cropped the image from a screenshot. Ha!

Update: Put birth sound(PossessionMissileLaunch1.wav) on the model as HappyCockroach wanted

Update: added a variation of the model with Textures\DeathScream.blp

The sound added does fit well. Approved.

Making effects out of DISBRN icons is a very good move, though they are not all that perceptible to me.

Try experimenting with skeleton's skull mesh, make it simpler and transform it into a sort of plane, then animate in vaguely. Also the skull element needs to be more bright, it very hard to notice it now. Maybe play with colour a bit more? I very much like this pink'ish circle, but adding some glowy texture behind it might do the trick and make it more eye-friendly. Maybe even a shadowy dark glow? :3

I suggest you take a skull from here and simplify it, it will be easier since this one is almost like 4 or 6 planes instead of a shitload like in Blizzard's skulls. Cut horns, the other side of the skull, animate it and no need for credits.

Looks great! The colors go together really well. You might have been able to do that skull with some texture, but it does look nice with the custom you took from WoW. You could only lower its size.
One thing your model really lacks though is a sound. At birth at least. At death would be good too. Awaiting update
I was wondering what sound to put there, and I put this. Hope it fits.
 
Please help me, the skull did
n't appear
The effect showed up correctly in-game to me. I'd tell you to check the texture path, but if it was wrong the model wouldn't even show in-game... Re-download and re-import anyway. Click on 'How to Import this Model' if you have doubt.

I have checked the model viewer but the skull didn't appear too

this model crashes my map !

i used a aoe fear ability based on the silnce ability and used all of its features of blocking not only spell but special attack and ranged

I gave it 90 cast range and made a buff ability and gived the fear effect model to the buff and gived the buff to my ability and i use it and its fine but then!!!!!!!!!!! i use it other units where the effect shoulde appear then ZAP it crashes my map dropping me instantly

i re tested this again and again this models is bugged on the terms im using it !

im using it with the silnce ability and they are the buffs poping on the enemies heads.

i also saw that one time it didnt insta crash it made red box like anim/effect on the ground when i moused over the units
then it crashed ! gj :(

Nice model but i think your model with this colours (blue and yellow ) is so ``Holly``(this 2 colours is usual for paladin or priest buff ).
My opinion is to change a colour of the ring from blue to purple (dark purple) or pink.

Are you sure it was the cause of the crash? It worked fine even when I put it as the model of the invulnerable buff.
yes i even checked on another map editor crashed right when i choosed it. did u also test it in game? which patch are u using i am using latest. it seems that half of people have problem with this model and half dont.

When you download this model you get 3 files,

Fear effect2 and fear skull which are useless because atleast in my case they were broke and caused my map to crash.

but the DeathScream file which is the 3rd file has a mdx called fear effect 3, just use that and it works properly it would seem.

i suggest removing the other 2 files to not create confusion, and as the "How to import this model" points out you only need the Deathscream file with Fear effect 3 in it.

Personal note: rating changed from 3/5 to 4/5.


UPDATE: looks like the above problem will not happen anymore. as there is now 2 different versions.

5/5 good work.

The FearEffect2, crashes WE on patch 1.28.5
It works for a while, but if i go through the models and put it to more units then 1, it crashes
In game crashes like about after 10-15 mins
What could be the fix of this?

I have no idea. The model was made with MAGOS editor before WC3 started getting patches again.
