change flashlight for a lighter / zippo flame

Recommended Posts

is there a way to change the default flashlight / torch for a light more like a zippo/lighter type of light , if that makes sense ? could i use the fire pit plane/ light instead of the flashlight.. just as if you where in the dark woods and light a zippo to see where your going with the light flickering .......if that makes sense

 

cheers

You can either use the firepit light or the cage light used in the AI demo map (above the monsters door).

On the train on my phone, so typing scripts is too painfull.

 

Lets start simple. The Flashlight is currently a spotlight. Use API to figure out how to make a pointlight instead.

 

Next is adding fluctuation to the intensity of the light. Try looking in to the firepit how that is done. In your fps script, in the update check if Flashlight is active. If so, aplly the fluctuation you found in the firepit script.

 

If you are really stuck let me know, and I will create a basic version for you. Also if you manage to get it working partially, post your script so that we can have a look.

Okay I will have look at it. It is good to see you try.

 

You can also remove the rotation for the point light, since the point light shines in every direction.

The fluctuation code needs to be inside the update loop. There we check if the flashlight is on. I haven't play tested it.

 

See the attached script.

problem is flash light is on at start game, where i would like the flash light off at the start of game, also if i leave the box unchecked and then turn on flash light in game with F key it uses default flash light (not the flickering zippo light)

 

if that makes sense, its like by checking the box im turning off or on the part you modified in the fps script ?

and is there a way to adjust light level ?

cheers again
