Greetings knowledgeable people :D


i have a question: for my game i'm creating parallaxed maps but i'm having problems finding/using a proper plugin for a single light effect. To make it quick, during the night (the map is entirely created with parallax, night effect included) the main character finds a flashlight and i need to make the cone of light appear in front of him, following his direction.



I've tried some plugin but i can't make it work properly: there is something useful for that?


Thanks in advance

to be honest


lights are just lights


what I usually do is just air brush on my overlay layers some yellow colors.


after all


most lights are still.


IF you want to go to the extreme with flickering lights


then you can just make an event with an animated light. just make sure your torches are placed carefully according to the 48x48 cube.


to be creative with lights


JUST play with your overlay layers.


Really that's all you need to do.

Terrax's plugin can do that. I'm using parallax mapping and it works. If you use BindPictureToMap, there can be a little trouble.


Do this :




and it should work.

Hey everyone, I'm going to do winners announcement post for the OCCIII after we get the edit bar fixed. It's kind of hard to do any announcement without formatting! Thanks for the patience.
