Zap Missile

Submitted by Thrikodius
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Since the normal lightning effect don't work in some cases I have made an effect that you can use instead. Don't try it as an attatchment. It's ugly and the sound is way too anoying.
NOTE: I will upload a sound file in a comment. I suggest that you import it. Otherwhise the sounds will be really screwed up in-game. I will give the path in the comment to.

Please give credit if you use it.
Thanks to NahzUl and Callahan for help with making the sounds work.
Without their help this wouldn't have been as good as it is now.

UPDATE: I made a red version to. Same thing goes for the sound as in the blue one.
EDIT: I had to upload the blue version in the portait slot to make THW accept the custom texture. But it changed the name of the blue version to match a portait file for the red one. I will upload the red one seperately to avoid confusion. Still my appologies for the previous malfunctions.

    looks really nice, but I think it would look even better if you would have made the blue glow a bit smaller

    4/5

    Nice missile. It is really useful, since sometimes lightnings just don't look good.

    4/5, because Don is right, the blue glow is too big.

    I would if I wasn't lazy and/or out of ideas.

    At the model, very nice special effect. Extremely useful for us spellmakers who hate using lightning because it sucks. Hurrah dummy missile! I'll rate 4/5 for the actual model (very lightning-like indeed) and bump it up to 5/5 because it's just so damn helpful.

    Oh wait. I think I should also say that the sound really is the Stasis Totem sound from wc3. So credits to blizzard for that one.

    I think you uploaded the red version 2 times, one in its own thread, and another right here.
    Would be nice to fix it so we can have both versions :hohum:

    OH! This is sooo insanely useful! I was even looking for a spell like this!
    But you know what? It looks like it kind of got chopped off when the user casts it there. If the cast started closer to the unit it might look better.
    4.5/5

    This is perfect for Tyber Zann's ship, they fire 1 blue shot like that, followed by a red one... first one kills shields, second makes their ship go BOOM! GW!
