Alright, it's time for an update! If you followed my activity with "Galactic" and "Aurora" weapon sets, you should know that Aurora was suppose to be Galactic's update.

Here is the old graphics:

New:

I have uploaded the files if you want to try them out and review them. If you dislike this change, please state a reason for your motion.

The only noticeable difference is the disk graphics, meson knife, beam blade, omega launcher missiles, spelling fixes (mezon -> meson, phazed -> phased, disc -> disk), hyper disc renamed to Phased Explosive (since it's no longer a disk graphic), some pMap / pHeld graphics. Electric knife was removed (stun guns make this useless). Beta item that wasn't intended for release was also removed. cdm.png is fixed, you can now use cloaked disk mines without crashing the game.

The changes you've made are a great improvement over the previous versions. look far more fitting. (especially the disk graphics, the old versions looked too chunky and cartoonish), the only (little) problem with updated version is the meson knife and that it looks far too similar to the plasma knife. this isnt really a problem and is dwarfed by the awesomness of the rest of the set. but all in all great job :) :D

Looks awesome but wish we can replace regular x-com and tftd weapons with these beauties.

When I first read this I thought you meant use X-com and TFTD's weapon sets (which you can if you have the games installed and linked with ufo2k).

I'm not exactly sure what you are saying then. Use x-com/tftd weapon balances with them? Or replace ufo2k's current default with them?

Any who, the Plasma knife and the graphics all being under the same author, Sporb, I don't think this should matter too significantly.

Thanks for the feedback. :)
