is it possible to fill an entire skybox with animated fireworks? that would be great for New Year! happy 2009 guys!
I'm sure that is possible with jka. can't say how though since I'm a simple skinner.
anyways happy new year fellow modders.

You couldn't do it to a whole skybox, but you could try a glowing animated shader on a flat plane and place that above the map.
i never done mapping before, just thought that it would be a nice idea,( this thread is just for celebration :D)
I, honestly, would just go for a bunch of effect files. Would end up looking 20x better in the end. Also wont look the same every time its used.
If you wanna do it in the skybox, create a fake skybox in the map and put a misc_skyportal in the center, add effects around it (fx_runners or trigger_lightningstrikes) and make em fire at random intervals, and enjoy your fireworks
so...uh... whos doing the map?
hmm, lemme get mah friend KOC here and he might be able to do it.
cool, with a big tower saying 2009!!! it would be cool if u can set off the fireworks on the tower with a touch of a button from a distance!
I didn't make it!
Hmm, I think I like the idea, so I may be able to do it.... I don't know if I'll get it done before new years, 6 hours of the day left, but I'll try! Does anyone have any ideas of what the scene should look like and which skybox I can use?
