Hey, i just found small and awesome effect for the fire tool.

1. Open up your goodies bag and place a hologram (Brightness: 100%)

2. Set it on fire.

Optional: If you want the effects be even more awesome, before setting them on fire, tweak the hologram and set a different coulour! And then set it on fire, and ta-da! The very best flame colour/effect!

Now go and try it. It's easy and great!

Yep I used this a lot on my level Sackrificed. It's a great way to have fire and even fire that won't kill the player (put it on a thin layer of holo) if you want. ;)

If you want a really punched up bit of firey color - add an invisible lightbox to the holo and you can get some neat color combinations and glowyness.)

If you want some cool movement in the fire too, try adding a smoke machine near the top of the holo that's on fire. have it move vertically and the particles from the fire mix with the smoke. Neat effect. :D

For lava I use the Freaky Clouds material to death in my new level. Set it to orange and optionally overlay a red piece of hologram on fire for a nice effect.

Looks better in motion as well, try it at a low brightness for the effect I had up there :)

Combining different lighting is something I was messing around with all today. Can get some awesome effects.

Need to try the smoke machine, sounds perfect for my level.

i've already knew this but i went with it to the extreme. Like some of you said before : Add more color & Brightness.
I've done that and also added a lot's smoke (random). I putted all box different danger effect : Plasma,fire,etc..
Added a background color really bright.
After all that, i made everything 5x bigger and................omg my eye where burning! + it was super lagging.

My story :)

The best thing about firery hologram in my opinion is the fact that it works underwater without being put out. Which is what I did in my CC13

Invisible lightbox?

Invisible lightbox?

What invisible lightbox? Do you mean the light cube? There isn't a setting for making the light cube invisble, so I must have missed something in my pop-it.

:confused:

You know I was just about to ask the same question. If I figure it out I'll get back to you guys on it.

I think you could also use regular material and it still works underwater!!!

Invisible lightbox?

There is a light called a "lightbox" that you can toggle the visibility on and off. I use them all the time because you don't have to hide them, just turn the visibility off.
