Today I want to talk about something that always draws everybody's attention over here at Xorm when it is being developed.. Explosions!
Most of our games feature them and somehow we always seem to find a reason to put them in a game. I guess we are all addicted to them.. :) Anyway I want to show you how we create them.
Pieter is our chief explosion expert when it comes to explosion effects in our games. He gave me a lot of tips on how to create good looking explosions with a real bang effect.
We create explosions using several particle systems layered on top of each other. They can be seperated as follows:
As you can see it doesn't appear to have that much energy. It also looks more like camp fire laying on its side..
Pieter suggested me to start over with the above information in mind and try again.
That's it for this month! :)
