I've found a way to make 3D clouds in BeamNG.drive
By - Playris
Looks maybe like several layers of the cloud layer spaced out maybe?
That's exactly what i did
I like it. Clever.
I believe that's how a lot of games handle it.
My gpu is gunna love this
It doesn't actually impact performance and if it does, it's very minimal
How do I do it?
Did you make a mod?
I just duplicated the same cloud layer multiple times, spaced them out and gradually decreased their coverage setting. In total there are 9 cloud layers
In the level editor, by messing around with cloud settings
Oh snap optimized mod creator? 11/10
Cool. Will it be released as a mod? Or needs to be done in a different way to modify the needed game files?
This would install the same way as the alternative lighting mod, if you heard of it. You just drag and drop the files in your user folder and it's done. I might release this later on, but first i have to finish setting it up on all the levels
What's the alternative lighting mod?
It's a graphics mod for BeamNG, here's a link https://beamng.com/threads/al15-for-0-23-released-30-6-21-graphics-mod-al-part-2.71585/
I immediately saw what you did and now I don't understand why no one thought of this before. So simple but so ingenious.
I'm surprised no one thought of doing this before as well
Y’all are puttin 3D clouds in and I’m here just tryin to load into the game without it crashing :(
They cast shadows? Damn
I think that's the sun moving and shadows from the terrain.
i have just visually debunked this theory
It’s just clouds of Gas from all the exhaust
Parallax Effect, awesome!
props 2 u :D
Now put an engine and wheels on it
cool though, in it
U 2 dingus.
