I just got the water material today and for some reason I just go through it. It is in the effects section.

its apparently not placeable water it jut looks like water. you still have to use the broadcast chip/animation tweaker etc to create the swimming illusion

What the heck! I wish they made actual water material that you can swim in. Sumo Digital got me good right there. I need a tutorial on how to create the swimming illusion.

I kind of like that they didn't make it physical water. You can control swim speeds and other fun stuffs with it like this. You can even just use the water in the thin layers to make under water levels with normal physics, or just for aesthetic purposes.

While we're on the topic, what gadgets do I need to make the water effect? I'm all set with the Broadcast Microchip and Character Animation Tweaker, I just need to know what to place down to make it watery. Thanks.

There's a water material. Like, a material that is water.

I'm going to screw around with it.

I actually agree with you.

You would need the character animation tweaker, something to detect you are in water (impact sensor and tag should work), movers, anti-gravity tweaker, sounds, and the broadcast chip. You would probably also need something to rotate sackboy.

Can you please make a tutorial? All I know now is that I need those things to swim.

Seems like a lot of work. Why the hell wouldn't Sumo just give us the logic from that one level where you fly around in space?

Where is the fun in that? I'm sure a nice community member will make the chip and give it away. Create, share, play.

I can by the end of next week. Unfortunately I'm not near the materials I would need to do the tutorial right now.

Speaking of which, I made a copyable level with a hopefully easy to understand and cheap chip lol to emulate swimming, that may help some. So if you can't find anything else or you are so desperate you can have a go (https://lbp.me/v/qt10nym/topreviews?p=1&l=12).
To be honest, since the main target of lbp3 was to ease the level creation, I'd also love to have at least, ready made partially swimmable material and not just global water and topdown and full 3d (Mario like) modes in global settings...
On a second thought, someone would ask for a first person then soo... Be it. lol

I have one tutorial here

I made a prize with my better looking water than the lbp3 material and my basic swimming chip,
hope this will help you
I agree,isn't funny having to use too much logic for simple things > >
we need a swimming and breathing default options
