Hey, me again with moar gtk questions...well, a quesiton. HOW does one make flares? i've been experimenting and what i've got so far is have a square that fits the flare texture, both sides have a flare texture on it, i duplicate it 4 times so it makes a + inside of a x, so a *, with nodraw on all other sides. So far it works fine BUT its not very good looking AND it only works from horizontal views, the vertical view you see the * not the amazing glowey thingy..yay..anyways, im using gtk 1.4.0 and umm, yus i have the flare textures... Anyone got a tutorial page that isnt on rich deisal's or map-craft (i already looked) for me? or would like to tell me haow? thanks :cool:
You need to make a cube, with the flare texture on all sides. Also, it needs to be displaying the whole texture on each side, otherwise you'll only get part of the effect.
I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.
I didn't make it!
Actually, you can add a flare inside of a light so that the light shows a flare aswell.
Try putting these parameters in your light:
Key: _flareshader Value: textures/flares/flare_white.jpg
This is just a base white flare. If you want a different color you could open the Assets1.pk3 and check the flares folder.
To both of you: <3 x 100 lol...thanks a tons. i think my map will be released in beta version soon.:D
