While spotting existing JA maps for nice effects to use on my map I spotted this lightbeam in the map "factory"

Now I'm like : DO WANT !!!!!!!!!!!

Now I'm wondering... What shader was used for the lightbeam ? Cause I can't find it.

You make a cylinder where the light should be. You go into the Common folder and look for a "Blue gradient". Apply it to the cylinder and make so that its fading downwards.

I am not that sure but it wont drain that much fps. Depends on how much youre going to spam them.

zomg no! shaders are the biggest FPS hogs in the game! it has to render each frame of the game another time for each shader you're looking through at that time! That means that if you're looking through a light beam into another one, and then into water, it has to do one rendering pass for the first lightbeam, one for the second, and one for the water. I would say, be very careful when you spam, which may lead to a paradox, we'll just have to see...I suppose it cant be called spamming anymore if you're careful about it...
