WOW :eek:

Its made with waterfall objects from the tomb of seth! cause is you use semi-transparent textures and place them is a X formation, then it wont slow down the game and will work 10% better than real rain! and yes! snow can be made the same way!

Wow as I saw in the screen the rain is great, but it propably is not meant for BIG areas :(

disco-fever
4th Jul 2002, 13:30
actually you can use it anywhere if you break the big places into several rooms like this diagram shows

Room 1 Room 2
_____________ ___________
l X X X X X X X Xl lX X X X X X Xl
l XXXXXXXXXXXXl lXXXXXXXXXXl

Room 3 Room 4
___________ _________
l X X X X X X Xl lXXXXXXXXXl
lXXXXXXXXXXl lXXXXXXXXXl

X = rain object

if you join little rooms everything will work great!

That's not really what I meant. The watefall object is one square big I guess, so It'd take thousands of those waterfall objects to fill the whole area where I want it to rain? Right? :(

no because one room cant be thousands of squares big and also most raining levels are in part rain and part dry!

And again I don't want the rain to be only in one room, and I want to squeze out of the level editor as much as I can, and most part of the level takes place outside...

disco-fever
4th Jul 2002, 14:29
than the best thing to do is just place one WATERFALL object on each square! sure it takes time but its worth it!

eTux
4th Jul 2002, 15:04
Of course it is, but since I we can have only 246 objects per level and one of the objects must be Lara herself, I think the level I'm working on wont be the right one for this nice effect, but I'll surely find a place for it in my furture levels :)

well, you can make your level extremely realistic, where and make it start raining part way through your travels, just make sure lara cannot get back to where she used to be. You can also make it darker, so it looks like its later on in the day, etc. I use this effect in my levels, and it will help you save object space! :D
