    Fixed an mdl/x conversion problem with the omnilights lighting up the whole map.

    I'd like to thank:
    • Frequent Issues

    Magos' Model Editor
    If a.) the model/s present an error regarding a ribbon emitter upon opening, or b.) the models go blank after editing them in Magos', use MdlxConv to convert the uncorrupted file to mdl, and then convert back to mdx before importing.

    In-Game
    If models with omnilights cause the whole map to light up after conversion, make sure you're using version 1.04 of MdlxConv.

Works in-game, performs appropriately and is a good addition to the model section.

    The three fireball variants give me an error about a ribbon emitter when opening them in magos.
    Minor fire bolt is invisible?
    Otherwise, nice work, I like the rough variants.

    You're quick. :p
    You should use a converter to turn the Fireball models into mdl, because some models with ribbons get fucked up when converting to mdx.
    Invisible in-game?

    Amazing work!
    However, it looks like the color is a bit too red compared to the standard orange/yellow flame. The end result is that it looks more like magical fire or burning magma than something a druid would throw using the natural fire element.

    I like the previews, so I don't need to view 3d. In the 3d viewer most of the spells (which I saw) don't look very good.

    Thanks, everyone!

    The flames will look less red when they travel over terrain, or any non-black backdrop.
    The purpose of the trails is to be "left behind," so they won't be visible when viewing models in a static setting. Additionally, the site's model viewer is imprecise with transparency, and doesn't display ribbons.

    Visually simple, but very well made and pleasing to the eye.
