One of my next projects will be a new combination missile weapon, based on everyone's favourite heavy weapon; the torpedo. They will track and move slowly, but carry a huge payload and deal significant damage over a fairly decent area, essentially acting as a fusion of the plasma charge and homing missile.

However, there are two things I need.

One: A Launcher sprite. This will need to be a pretty beefy-looking missile box or some kind of tube launcher. Preferably the former. If good sprites for both come up, I can make both if need be.

Two: A Torpedo sprite. I have four candidates at current, but I'm taking suggestions. The torpedo needs to be big, it needs to look dangerous, and it needs to look sturdy.

The current four candidates are from Raptor, Call of the Shadows. They are;

The Unshaded Air-To-Air Missile
Wiped the old and shitty versions now. This is the best of the 'cleaner' ATA variants.
Image

The Shaded ATA Missile
This version retains it's original shading, and looks far more pleasing.
Image

The Unshaded ATG Missile
Image

The Shaded ATG Missile
Like the shaded ATA, this has the original shading.
Image

The Unshaded Dumbfire Missile
This is technically unshaded. It was cleaned up and came out better than it's unshaded ATA counterpart, but is still inferior to the real thing if you ask me.
Image

The Shaded Dumbfire Missile
The original, stock-shaded dumbfire missile. Not exactly accurate, but very good at persuading people to die.
Image

The Unshaded Bomb
Image

The Shaded Bomb
Image

Hege's TFTD Ajax
A rather nice scale-down of the AJAX torpedo I posted further down.
Image

Hege's TFTD DUP Torpedo
A scaled down version of the DUP torpedo I posted further down, also quite nice.
Image

Darkship's Torpedo/Bomb
Apparently adapted off the bomb a few candidates up;

Submissions for the torpedo should be about the same size as the existing torpedoes. Launchers should be big enough to accomodate a loaded torpedo too.

Here is a Torpedo Launcher sprite, it fits the current candidate torpedos.

Yum. Make the payload my idea for a Nuke (forget the candy corn sprite) and I'll love you forever!

That'd help if I knew what that was. :P

Here's a couple more huge candidates - anyone want to take a crack at reducing them down to around the size of the example torps up there?

TFTD Ajax;

TFTD D.U.P.;
Image

ED: Preferably shift the purple-grey to grey-grey.

I had an attempt at resizing and cleaning those two big guys;

Edit;
Re balanced shading

Though I personaly like the Dumbfire missile.

*cue FF victory fanfare*

I've live tested the Torpedo and it works like a charm. :)

Ed: not the final sprites by any means, just a test;

Important update; through the magic of doing something for shits and giggles, I've made the torpedoes behave themselves. Anything that gets hit by one of these at short range is really going to feel it, but the damage drops off pretty quickly towards the outer edge of the explosion. :)
