    I just finished with a lava-fall that disappears into some foggy depth. The fog radii of the lights casting the fog is such that one can only see them when looking down from directly above. The rest of the time, they're occluded. Do they still slow down the zone?

    i wouldn't think so, as long as no polygons can be seen through the fog, that is what matters. i could be wrong though

    lol

    And no btw. You have to be careful that none of the fog can be seen, sometimes the outer edge of the fog is being drawn but it's not bright enough to see.

    If you put on the radial view in the 2d views, the light radius should show up as a blue circle. Make sure it doesnt come over the edge. Also, if you have a zoneportal over the mouth of the pit that will solve all framerate problems relating to the pit, but you wont see the fog untill your actualy in the zone.

    That is exactly why he doesn't do that I believe. The fog is suppoesed to be seen from above. I ain't sure if players are supposed to go down there anyway...

    umm, no, they aren't. The main idea behind the fog was to cover-up the termination of the falls. The only player's that are going to get a close-up view are a second away from getting killed, and I made certain that they won't see much in that condition.

    !!!!

    I can see the fog in the editor without any problems. It looks exactly as I would want it to look, but I don't see any fog whatsoever when I actually playtest teh level. What's up with that?

    turn the fog on

    ut.ini in your syste directory, search for the render deice you use, so lets say d3d, so then you search to d3drendrv or something, and then, bvolumetriclight=false > make it true, now play

    Yay! Do most people have volumetric lighting enabled? Are there any Epic maps with it?

    Theres actualy quite a few. Look at CTF-Kosov.

    Also, what is the exact setting of the crevice, how wide is it, is it in an open area?

    It's 768x176xsomething deep

    It's in a hall of sorts and is obscured entirely by a lavaflow from one end, and is visible from above and the other side, though all of the fog lights are visible only from above.

    BTW, there's no growth nearby, and I believe the fog color is white, though the reddish lighting has made it an appropriate orange. Of course, you still need to get the correct vantage point to see anything at all. :lol:

    A very good question GoldenMouse. It would be a shame to go through
    all that work to make the fog when many have their card's
    volumetric lightingturned off. :(
    .
    And yes, many D3D users have their volumetric lighting
    turned off because most gaming sytes tell them to for
    speed purposes. But with today's faster cards it is no longer
    necessary. Not everyone has the newest card though. :rolleyes:
