BSF is sorely lacking in new alien weapons with all the new weapons being variations of Terran weapons. I can't code new weapons, but I can at least give you some sprites, beginning with revisions of my originals:

Disruptor:
Image
Basic Bullet:
Image
Large Bullet:
Image
Disruptor bullets are designed for use with weapons that leave afterimages, such as the Pulse.

Pulse Driver:
Image
Basic Bullet:
Image
Alternate Bullet Colors:
Image Image Image
The Pulse Driver bullet is designed for use with weapons that leave afterimages.

Stasis Field:
Image
No ring:
Image
Probably fits best as a Point Beam, but could be used for other guns too.

Impeller:
Image
Variations:
Image Image Image
Beam:
Image
An experiment on making a larger alien weapon. No animation since beam-types don't work with firing animations very well. Given its size, it could double as a fighter or patrol craft sprite.

Plasma Funnel:
Cannon:
Image
Shotgun:
Image
Sorta meant to fill the role of a basic alien cannon.

Maw:
Image
Blobs:
Image Image Image Image
These bullets create a Driver-like effect when given afterimages.
Missile:
Image Image Image Image
You know you're having a bad day when these little buggers are trying to slam into your hull.

These are great and you should make more. :) Good to see you pop in, Ixranin.

I especially like... well, actually, I like all of it a lot, so I can't pick favourites.

Nice to see you're into making SWA sprites! The problem with making "alien" weapons is they're always more code intensive than "terran" weapons, and I'm not much of a coding wiz; anything really fancy is best left to th15 or Kaelis.

Thanks. I don't build ships anymore, but I still lurk around on occasion. And there'll definitely be more to come. I need an excuse to sprite things, and this works pretty well.

Updated the first post with two weapons, one old one new. (Stasis Field and Impeller) I must've deleted the Bombardment Tachyon frames off my photobucket, so it'll probably be a while before I SWA-itize that one to finish the old set.

Very pretty sprites Ixranin, can't wait to see more. I really like the SWA-ized Pulse Driver

I'm kinda sad you've given up shipbuilding though. :C

...I should've figured it'd be buried in the wrong Photobucket folder. Thanks.

Still loving these. The cannon and the shotgun aren't that great compared to the rest, but still, pretty nice.

These are splendid. Any chance you're gonna put them in a sprite pack anytime soon?

Thank the old CE Archive. I managed to dig them up from the weapon/module sprite contribution thread. :)

Yeah, I'm not very satisfied with how the Plasma Funnel came out. It's just sorta there.

Not sure about making a pack, since I'm probably not going to finish any definitive set. This is more just an assortment of whatever weapons I happen to whip up.

Anyhow, added the Maw and some more bullets to the original topic. Finally got around to making a critter missile.

I'm sorry...
How do we use these?
Will you put together a download soon?

He hasn't released a download yet so your best bet would be to pm him and request either the information to properly save them yourself so they will be compatible with anything he releases later, or a direct download if hes willing.

I believe at one point he mentions that these go in the /Ixra/ folder, though it's no longer in the main topic. Just save 'em there and you should be good.
