Creating softer shadows

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Was wondering if anyone knows if its possible to change the shade of shadows. I'm testing to see if its possible to make cloud shadows move over a map, but the current shadows are very dark.

Hi, it's possible and it wouldn't be really hurt for performance. I'd prefer to add it with weather and sun.

Brightness of clouds or objects really depends on environment brightness:

Having a cloud feature built in the map editor would be nice.

Is it possible to add shadows to particle effects? I tried adding the castshadow into a particle.xml file but no luck.

It's possible, but much more expensive. I don't think that we will have that until we drop all GL versions less than 3.

Clouds shadows could be faked as a moving texture mapped in the ground / models etc...
