I personally don't like it that much, blue fire? doesn't make much sense to me, but, what can I do? It's a texture, and I respect the people who like it.

From all the fireblue textures, I like this one the most (I think it's fireblu1)

I heard somewhere that the fireblu texture was meant for 90's space style effects. Like some alien lava or power generator. Just wanted to come here and give that fun fact.

Oh boy a FIREBLU love fest <3

 

Yeah FIREBLU is great, it's so strange and surreal and instantly jazzes up any map with its otherworldly shiny weirdness.  I love finding novel uses for it, like I wouldn't just wall an entire room in FIREBLU (or would I?) but it can make a super cool trim or embellishment in a lot of scenarios

Hum... let's see

Fireblu2 is the most balanced frame, with red and blue having the same weight (creating that beautiful contrasting piece we all love). Fireblu1 is more pushed to red, losing a bit of its eccentricity. I would say that Fireblu2 represents better the whole texture, so I agree it's the better frame. However Fireblu1 have an important role to the glowing aspect of the animation, thanks to the use of darker and brighter tones in contrast to the pale aspect of Fireblu2. So both have it's own value.

Described like a true connoisseur, lovely.

They actually look pretty cool! in a 70's sort of way.

FIREBLU should always be a brightmap in modern sourceports..

There's not FireBlu3 even in Romero's resource releases, but if you want to see FireBlu before it was Fire and Blu, check out wall65 compared to wall65b in this folder of the zip: walls/e23walls

I recommend getting the zip of graphics already converted to png by Ling on bottom of page 3 here.

You'll have to reduce them to 10% of their current size for use though (possibly by nearest neighbor)(each pixel is 10x10 pixels).

 

However,  someone made a Fireblu3.   It's in Silver Miner's texture pack MudicewindTNT.wad available on page 12 here: https://www.doomworld.com/forum/topic/116767-the-128-kb-mapping-extragavanza-challenge/?page=12&tab=comments#comment-2239216 but he said it comes from Aesthetic Pack.

There's a Fireblu4 but it's identical to 2.

Little known fact is that Partial Invisibility spheres are forged from chunks of pure FireBlu.

I lowkey really like FireBlu.  It's great for adding a bit of surrealism/otherworldliness to a map's aesthetic, and I love how vibrant it is.  Personally, I think it also makes for great stained-glass windows in a GStone cathedral.

Yep, it has something.

Would buy one for my Douche, when wabbling around it would have a nice Effect :>

Not even gonna lie, i would unironically buy a fireblu pillow.

 

When putting the Pillow in a wrong Place,

you can actually say you have a misplaced Texture in your Home.

Personally I think fireblu only looks acceptable when used in small amounts. It looks just plain ugly when it is pasted on a wall.

 

Also I would say that the best fireblu I have come across are those that i saw in some screenshots of Supplice. Now that's what fireblu should have looked like.

I disagree. Fireblu looks best when it's placed on all walls, floors and ceilings.
