    Direction of the fire and wind

    Post by lockie on Mon Nov 02, 2015 8:47 pm

    I hope I've finally managed to fix fire direction. Now fire is not separated from the smoke when the wind blows.
    BEFORE


    AFTER


    There was one parameter - it is dependences of the wind.
    original
    fire,1,4,0.3,0.8,1,0.2,0,0.4,0.1,1,0,fire_sphere0,0x00000004,sh_add,0xffFFE081,0x00FFE081,1,15;

    fixed
    fire,1,4,0.3,0.8,1,0.05,0,0.4,0.1,1,0,fire_sphere0,0x00000004,sh_add,0xffFFE081,0x00FFE081,1,15;

    DECODING
    smoke,15,4,2,6,1,0.1,1,11,0.7,0.6,0,smk_sphere0,0x00000006,sh_ablendd,0x802E2C23,0x304E4C43,0.3,5;
    smoke        -effect name
    15             -number of particles spawned at once eg: for this smoke column each puff is 15 particles
    4               -lifespan of the particles
    2               -appears to be the size of the particle
    6               ?
    1               ?
    0.1            -wind modifier, higher means blown by wind more
    1               ?
    11             -particle's speed, higher means particle moves faster
    0.7            ?
    0.6            ?
    0               ?
    smk_sphere0 -texture
    0x00000006  -alpha channel
    sh_ablendd     -microcode, means it uses the 2 following colors and blends between them over the life of the particle
    sh_add           -microcode, seems to simply take the texture and use it
    0x802E2C23    -start color  0x##(0-255 hex alpha value)####(hex color value)
    0x304E4C43    -end color
    0.3                 ?
    5                    ?

    That is amazing stuff! It's incredible that you are still improving Steel Fury after all these years.

    Lockie is to Steel Fury the equivalent of what a balanced diet and plenty of exercise can do to your body... Wink
