For as much green glowing wads of plasma it shoots out, the Plasma Gun itself doesn't glow much. There are a few green bits, but... no glow. This mod rectifies this glaring oversight.
Glowmaps and enviro-cube maps appear to be mutually exclusive since Skyrim's NIF format, which is perplexing because it's a step backwards from FO3/NV's. I had to separate out the glowing bits and also make a third set of glassy reflective parts.
Additionally, I tried to make the ports emit a light cone with a gobo to simulate the three port holes, but it seems that gobos don't work on light addon nodes attached to weapon meshes. Shame...
This is an module-less mod, solely comprised of loose asset files. Install into your Data folder.
4. ADDITIONAL INFO
For those who may be wondering where the unusually short "sniper" barrel on the screenshot plasma gun is from, it is another of my mods: Plasma Carbine Barrel (https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/22679). Essentially, it is the missing step betwen the short "barrel" and "sniper" barrel for semi-auto fire, for those who want a better mid-range plasma gun.
