View Full Version : Glowing Objects?

02-12-2010, 02:57 PM
For a level I am currently working on (Unimagination Isle) I need to make an object which has (Doesn't HAVE to but would be a nice effect) to glow. The basic plot behind the story is that there is an ancient "Imagination Mine" where people in the outlying town use to mine all their creative ideas from, but they have drained the supply and have moved on, leaving the area and all the creatures in it very dull, colourless and unimaginiative. Your sackboy is then employed by the town to find a new supply of imaginiation, and this is where I need he object to glow. The colour of the "Imagination" is a sort of light blue but transparent (So basically the colour of ice in the game :S), but is there a way I could get an effect to make it have a faint glow?

Thanks, Pete

You could get a kind of halo effect using some gas in the thin layer.

If its ice and you can see through it you can place some very bright material behind it. I used that effect in my pinball level (on some arrows on the right of the table).
