Are you referring to making updated, more Sphaxy versions of the current runes in the Sphax patch? (I suppose the essences and the affinity books would also be on the list?) That might be something I could try my hand at---I think a grey rune might be the best thing to practise my vector Sphax-style lighting on.

Is there a default set of Sphax arcane symbols, or would pulling them from Thaumcraft be kosher?

(Speaking of Thaumcraft, there's a LOT of unused material in the Sphax textures for early versions of Thaumcraft---all the way back to version 1---that could be used for all manner of things in AM2, Thaumic Tinkerer and Blood Magic. Definitely worth a look!)

And I'm glad to hear that "pasting a crazy color overlay and taking screenshots of it in-game" is, apparently, the way to go about the model code. Buuut.... I seem to vaguely recall hearing about a free-ish program that you could load a model file (I think they're the .obj files?) and its associated texture, to see how they fit together... I'll see if I can find it.

No what I mean is the mod creator has changed his default textures to pentagons himself. We were planning on changing them to look more like a rock and less like a lily pad.

That would be great if you could find a good program for that.

How do you guys feel about my Sunstone Block texture? To be honest, I never got enough Sunstone to use them in-game, but after seeing the previews on the front I'm worried they're a bit... garishly bright.

Instead of the current "frozen molten" yellow/red block, I'm considering making a translucent red block (solid color, with just a little detailing), and then animating a yellow "sun" contained within it---subtle and translucent itself, just a hint of something energetic pulsing/throbbing inside. Maybe use the Thaumcraft Node texture as a starting point... but I'm not sure I have the skillz to pull that off. In the meantime, if anyone else wants to take a crack at the Sunstone Block, I do think it needs some love (and I won't be offended!)

Oh, and there's an error in the GUI for the Rift spell; a fixed version is between spoilers (the original is missing a row):

I have also been playing, and think that block is a bit weird. I'm busy with the spells and having a look at the models, so again if anyone wants to take a crack t it, go!

Had a go at a few things:

The Mana battery
The magic wall animation (Rework of Hanfox's steam from TE)
The pedestal
The Archmage Podium

Also did a few GUI's

Essence extractor
Keystone Chest
Keystone Receptacle

Added sphax type overlays to the
Inscription table GUI and Keystone GUI

Download contains files for 128x and 64x
Enjoy :)
