Kanoka disk launchers

Posted by Katuko , in Sprites, Graphics, BIONICLE Fighter Mar 19 2014 · 234 views

So we got the basic disk launcher, and Vakama Metru's special launcher. Now, one is bog-standard, and the other is cool but kinda big. Plus, it's flame-styled, which doesn't fit every character. Thus I felt the need to make some new disk launcher designs that better reflect other shapes and elements.

So there we have Vakama's laucnher to the top-left, and a modified round design to the right of it. Next is a design I added "wings" to, in an attempt to make a cool launcher for a Toa of Air. The spiky one takes some inspiration from Ice, while the last one was modeled after a bats stingrays. I will be making a few more of these, and add them to BIONICLE Fighter as optional styles for the Disk Launcher weapon.

While unique designs could serve as an indicator of a disk's special abilities (like the Rahkshi Staff design does for the power contained within), please note that I will not be adding powers to the disks in BIONICLE Fighter at this stage. There are a lot of things to work out with them, since several of the powers have effects that are not easily programmed and/or not easily balanced. Mechanics have been considered, but they are better suited for the revamped engine.

Here are some characters posing with the new launchers:

Feel free to suggest other designs, and I will happily take them into consideration. :)

The sprites are free to use for anyone. Credit is appreciated, but not necessary.
