Still working on ArcaneTale, I am trying as hard as I can to make a realistic rainforest scene & some things just seem to be missing from it. It feels empty, & I cant think of anything to add that wouldnt be a pain in the back to get working.
So far my list is as fallows:
Tree's of various sizes. (Including fungi wrapping randomly around the bottom.)
Old fasion houses with lit tourches
Fireflies at night.
Grass, flowers, & random details spread around the rainforest.
Large/Small Mushrooms of various colors.
Different plant life.
I need some idea's that could make the environment look more interesting, any ideas?
Yeah, I forgot to mention, Rain is apart of the weather system I made & the game has 4 times of the day, Day, Noon, Night, Morning.. all have there own sound effects, atomosphere color (Bright, Orange, Clear, Dark) & once I can get a stable server to run these globally, everyone can run off a day/night; weather system where everyone see's the same thing.
Adding things like butterflies is an idea me & Snerlin are still discussing. I'm thinking of how I can do it so that it can look very random, so people cant detect a pattern that would ruin the realistic feel of the game. Thanks for the complements, I think its about time I step away from Diamond & what better of a project. More idea's are welcolm, I'm open up to anything.
I've got a nice rainforest ambient as far as sounds go, but Mist & Runray I dont have yet. I'll add those to the check list, thanks. As far as fallen tree's, I did just add one the other day to the game in replacement of a bridge.
