Weather Effect

Post by Jeffrey » Sun Dec 09, 2007 3:46 pm

I spent this morning troubling my mind how to make weather effect in TS.

It seems you need 3 things:

1. Track Sliding Effect
2. Bad weather Atmosphere
3. Rain/Lighntning Effect and Sound Effects

1. I ve managed to play with terrain files and created this sliding effect ans you can see in the image. Using some viscosity, less braking, less grip, less steering.. and also add tyre mark for the effect.

2. The atmoshepere was done by editing the lightmap in the track

Lightmap 1 9 90 1.500000 89

3. Now this is the problem... rain effect is impossible as not yet supported by game. What i was trying to at least add is thunder effect. I got a thunder wav sound and replaced it with the sound file tumps. So when a car passes over a tump, thunder roars. I will check what i can do.

Any ideas ? Help?

I have done tests in this also. Main thing I'm trying to do is to simulate a "spray" of some kind, with no tire marks. I'll test again eventually...
