Blue Shock Wave
This .ODF mod was submitted with the words "extremely basic" in the suggested description, but there's nothing that can be done to this game that is basic, or radical, enough, and we love all the mods that A2 inspires in you, the community. Your efforts mean something no matter how insignificant you convince yourself they'll be. Some people consider a mod a failure if it doesn't get some mystical number of downloads. But even one person downloading it means you've inspired someone else to mod A2. And for that, we thank you.
This so-called "extremely basic" mod changes the shockwave for larger ships to have a blue, faint colour rather than a bright orange shade. It's exactly what you'll need if you like your explosions to be powerful yet subtle.
This is extremely basic. I just changed the colour of the shock wave when larger ships are destroyed. When the ship is destroyed the colour of the shock wave is now a faint blue instead of orange. To me it looks simular to the ones from the Star trek movies. Well Star Trek Generations to be exact. Just copy to ODF/Other file.
