Thunder and Lightning is here!




For anyone looking to create more atmosphere to their rainy maps, I've put together a collection of lightning bolts and chains that will randomly strict across your map and emit various thunderous sounds based on the distance of the bolt from the player.

This system also has an option to flash light across the map, like a true thunderstorm would. See video below for full demonstration. You can also adjust the frequency rate of the lightning.



You simply place the lightning entities into your map. No need to mess about with assigning scripts and sounds and all that jazz. Just simply pick the types of lightning bolts you'd want to spawn in your game and as many as you want, place them down and hit Test and watch and hear the light show!

Not Included: Skybox, Rain Particles, Puddles and Rain Sounds. All of which however you can find too for free.

Customization Update!

You can now change both the spawn distance and height of the lightning. By modifying the following values you can change the maximum distance at which lightning will appear. Additionally how high off the ground.

In the lightning.lua script (located in Teabone\weather\ folder)

New Variables:
max_distance[e] = 2100
min_height[e] = 300
max_height[e] = 1300

You can also modify the frequency at which the lightning spawns:

bolt_frequency[e] = 4000

It is important to keep the max_height[e] variable greater than the min_height[e] variable. Or else you may experience a Lua error. Make sure to make the max_distance[e]no less than 900, otherwise the lightning bolt may not properly spawn in view.
