Particle Fire


Hola now because Ben got the new news posting system working I can post news again as well.
The readers of my dev diary already knew about it, most others don't I assume. My Particle Egnine is now almost finished. There is a new entity available to mappers called env_ParticleEmitter. With this little piece, you can do all the volumetric effects you can imagine and the best is, thats its visually up to date. This means, it has the same potential from the code side as UT2k3's or HL2's particles have. The particles are fully animateable like sprites, but they support an 8 bit alpha channel as well, which HL1 can't do by default. The method also keeps 24bits for awesome colors as well.

Fire avi

Ok no more ranting. Above are images, that show a mapped fire ingame and an avi showing the particle fire in-game ( divx avi 0.5mb )
