The fog......

Postby Kooldoode » July 31st, 2011, 6:39 pm

I was playing teh game and had an idea for a map, but I needed fog to do so, but have it so some areas have fog and others are clear as day......I was thinking (im not sure if anyone has thought of this before) of maybe haveing fog particles......similar to light, where as you can adjust the radius and brightness......but with the fog have it so you can still adjust the radius but also have it so you can adjust thickness and maybe color........so if someone wanted to create an area with a poisonus green gass cloud :mrgreen: ......or create a greyish smog, maybe they want to make their own clouds. I thought this would be perfect for like a haunted forest in part of teh map.....and from a distance you can still see the fog.....but in teh rest of teh map you can see clear as day.

Please give me some feedback on if this is a good idea or not.....and how this may be possible....I would love to this this in the next version. :D

What you're talking about is a particle emitter. Check around the wiki (I didn't look at CP's link so that may be it) and the forum.

EDIT: Nevermind, ignore me, CP already got the link I was thinking of (I'm really tired... I should probably get some rest :P )

this isn't quite what im looking for......this gives me a flare.......its like a jet that shoots out at a 45 degree angle.....i want something that is more like a light particle that you can set the radius, plus something that doesnt shoot up into the sky like a jet stream.....something that seems to react to gravity. But thank you for the link.

it's likely a stable release vs. SVN thing.

SVN is the development version of Sandbox, basically like a unstable preview of the next stable release (in this case, 2.7). It has new features, but also the bugs that come with them.
