stefanhendriks Posted February 8, 2006 Share Posted February 8, 2006 I am a bit experimenting with code. So far i have added a very simple day/night feature, which will turn into 'dark' and then into 'normal'(light). When in 'normal', its just an avarage day, sunshine, hot, arrakis ;) So, you can see all units on map, there is no visibility check.At night, there is now a drawn circle , this is how far your units/structures are able to see in the dark. Its a fog-of-war thing like in Warcraft. Here you see 2 screenshots of what i mean, a map totally cleared (using debug key ALT-F5) and then set at night. The sonic tank can see a devastator. When moving a bit lower, it can't see the devastator. Ofcourse, it should limit structure drawing too, but its about the idea. Like it or not? If not, why? If you do like it, why? I am doubted, it is nice and all, surely gives you some creeps in night-mode which will happen regulary, but will it be truly some addition, or do you think it should be left out?Opinions please! :)[attachment deleted by Gobalopper] Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
