[Request] Dynamic weather conditions

Post by nilakite2 » 22 Nov 2017, 10:48

Hello NADEO and community,
We were thinking about adding new option for the game which would and could impact masses of people, new people.
We are talking about "dynamic weather", it would bring big opportunity for people which works with "editor" in general, to change conditions of the environment.
The idea about "dynamic weather" is to make the game more interresting and little bit more realistic.

Here are few examples:
- Stadium -> Rain, Snow, Lightning
- Canyon -> Dust storm, Rain, Lightning, Mirage
- Valley -> Rain, Snow, Lightning
- Lagoon -> Tropical storm (Rain, strong wind), Rain, Lightning

This option would be set right next to "dynamic daylight" with options to make it permanent or as map author needs (sets times when this weather condition would happen).

Also other thing is to change how the sun would be shown ingame, for example possibility to change size of the sun and colors of it on scale from yellow trough orange to red.

For all of this there would be blocks which are changing conditions of the driving traction.
On scale from dry to wet, snowy or dusty.

Time for implementation this feature would be 5-7 months, from now on it we would expect beta in March 2018 and in public version at end of April 2018.

Regards,
Dominik (nilakite2) and Lucario

I'm a little confused, are you saying you're making this or are you saying you expect Nadeo to take 5-7 months to make this?

Either way, this does sound awesome. I've always wanted to see rain and such environmental effects, it could really set the mood. Granted, you can do parts of it with MT already, such as fog/haze etc.

I expect Nadeo to make it and properly promote this update on front pages of Ubi to attract more people.
Sorry for misunderstandment.

Edit: The time I wrote (5-7 months) is just what I expect, ofc for implementing this you need minimal of 4 ppl in development for this one thing. (2x developer, artist, audio editor)

FYI, Players have worked on these ideas for quite a while.

I know about those but it is not exactly how it suppose to be because it is not 3D rain.

Indeed, those are only just 2D overlays with some color grading, doens't really look as good as can be desired :D

Well, many of us have used this for years and it still looks great in-game. So we'll wait and see how good whatever you guys are talking about is, once you've created and implemented it.... ;)

Would like to see effects like that in tm and maybe even in sm. Maybe nadeo can do it one day. ;)

But what do you mean by Mirage? How should that look like? :|

Well I imagine radiating heat from the ground in the distance for Canyon.
