Transparent bridges

Post by dede » Mon Apr 07, 2008 11:46 am

I remember that players wanted the possibility to see what's happening under a bridge (semi-transparent bridges feature requests and so on). Maybe somebody already noticed that it's possible to edit the default tiles to have transparent bridges (though tyre marks are quite big and annoying).

This is an example of how the tile should be modified:

You can download the modified tile from here:

Remember to save a backup of the original tiles, since transparent bridges can also generate problems (think about those bridges-based tracks // rough tracks).

You bet. Just like with other alpha blending -tiles it needs more CPU-processing but in some tracks it could be usefull. Especially for wankers.

lol indeed
It didn't took many wanksessions until i thought about creating invisible bridges, but even i am a wanker, i skipped the try due to being too lazy to search a tool and edit all these things... - not easy to wank in Sandslid and hope to hit the right line with speeder for example...
