is there a way to make a gun barrel glow momentarily? example liquid falcon; you hit the trigger a glow/ring thingy rapidly travels from the base of the gun to the muzzel(.1 sec or less) and when it reaches the muzzel a projectile comes out. reckon this would have to be a tank specific effect

There's no real way to do that in TM. You could SORTA create the effect, but it would be lagged a frame, so if you rotated the turret it would look bad...

Yeah - you could do as Kaeto said and make use of weapon Flares...that would be my best guess as to how to do that. The problem is the weapon is not actually shot "through" the barrel but appears at the end of it. The barrel is nothing more than a visual effect.
