Spellbound's Custom Lightning Effects

Submitted by Spellbound
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
This is a collection of lightning effects I made. I don't really like Warcraft 3's vanilla lightning effects, so I decided to make my own. This pack contains 7 new types of lightning, each with 8 colours, and two bonus ones. You may use them as replacers, but in the link provided below, you may download the full pack that contains an .slk file designed to make these ligthning effects standalone.

This page contains only a few samples of the lightning effects available. For the full pack (and a demo video), go here: Lightning Effect Pack



The following text is taken directly from the Lightning Effect Pack thread:

Pretty handy effects. I love the variations and how they were portrayed. Approved!

    Maybe my noobism is showing, but I've never seen anything quite like this before (certainly not in this volume), so I'm very impressed. You're going to make me rethink so many of my practical effects in my campaign, which is not what I should be spending my time doing but I'm easily distracted HEY LOOK A QUARTER

    I'm sorry. Sometimes I like to think I'm funny. Anyway, a simple but very useful asset. Thank you for providing an explanation for adding these to the game rather than replacing because I had no idea you could do that. I will review this (which means I will probably forget but keep this tab open on my computer for days on end anyway) once I've taken a look at these in-game.

    EDIT: Tested in-game, they all look amazing! And by the way, the map link in your description has expired.

    For anyone who needs them, here are the codes for the bonus ones that don't fit the normal code system:
    HLFX - Healing Flux
    CONS - Constellation

    Oh, I must have forgotten to set the pasta to never expire - and forgotten that the map was already attached to the thread :p. Thanks for pointing this out, will fix this post-haste! Also thanks for pointing the missing instructions for bonus effects as well :p
