This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
A very simple skin for alternative lightning, which I called "Nether Chains". I will start off a collection of those, cause I have some pretty good ideas. This is just for a variety on lightnings. It replaces the "IariatCaught (Lariatcaught)", which is the path for the Aerial Shackles lightning.

    Now that is a good idea, there should be done more skins along this line, though the chains MIGHT just want to look a bit smaller, to go with the units, as of now their really larger than the units, which I personally dont think is a good thing.

    They are done like that on purpose. Aerial Shackles are semi-chains themselves, but they are way too small to notice. That is why I came up with this. Nevermind, I'll upload an alternative version of smaller ones, thanx for the info ;)

    Looking good, but you should make it smaller, add green glow on the inside and perhaps make the glow slightly less dense.

    Looks good, and really cool idea.

    But I do agree, the chains need to be smaller, and maybe you should use orange color.

    By looking at the screenshot, i think they chains is too huge. Maybe it still can be useful in such a size but i think they should be sized down.
    Anyways its still a really cool idea and it looks quite good.

    this is awsome but the chains are (as it has been said) far too large. and if they ARE chains, try to define the hole in the center a bit more. and add a bit more shading and details.

    To quote a half-dozen people, size down the chains. Otherwise, this is a good idea.

    It would be nicer if the links had more definition and looked more like links, one of my friends commented that it looks like a line of hammers, though it looks enough like a chain to get the point across. The chain could also stand to be smaller, to look a more believable size. If you need more pixels to work with you can always increase the size of the skin, it will work with a higher resolution. Really cool idea though :)
