Tutorials:NewDark/Particle effects - Bitmap Disk Fire

This is a very quick and dirty tutorial explaining how to set up a new, particle-only Flame (-208) replacement in Dromed for v1.19. This **will not** work in v1.18 as it relies on the Bitmap Disc particle type added in 1.19

Initial setup

First you need to create a new flame base, an object that will have the various particle components linked to it. Open the Object Hierarchy window and then:

  • Open the SFX -> FireFX tree
  • select FireFX, click Add. In the window enter NewFlame and click OK.
  • select NewFlame and add the following:
AI -> Utility -> Path avoid: Repel

Act/React -> Receptrons
    WaterStim; Min: 0.0; Max: No max; Effect: Slay object; Target: Me; Agent: Me
    KOGas; Min: 0.0; Max: No max; Effect: Slay object; Target: Me; Agent: Me

    Radius: 30; Override Volume: 0; Flags: [None]; Schema Name: fire_flame

Game -> Damage Model -> Slay Result: No Effect

Renderer -> Anim Light
    Mode: random but coherent
    millisecs to brighten: 99

    min brightness: 80
    radius: 30
    inner radius: 0
    quad lit: ticked
