Was able to get up an running in minutes.
Looks great and is very easy to implement!
I've found this to be a great tool for a multitude of game styles. Right now I am using it for top-down visual effects, layered with my pre-existing fog of war setup. I would like to see in the future improvements to ambient effects like in-and-out flickering and real-time radius changes, the later being the only current downside to this otherwise spectacular (and free!) asset.
Easy, fast, enough said.
god but just an issue!
Thanks for your free and at the same time highly efficient and easy-to-use piece of work.
But when I use it in my game it considerably drops the fps. especially in android using few of light sources there in my room made the game almost unplayable.
can you help me?
I am using in my new project! Really easy to use em customize. Thanks
Simple and Easy to use!
This is a great engine! my only suggestion is an easy way to make cone-lights, but that's it. it suits my needs well and I'm sure will suit anyone else's!
Can you somehow make other object to suppress/block light? It seems to work this way on the one of the pictures you've attached - candle on the shelf.
I implemented a way, but it was very unoptimized and inefficient in comparison to the rest of the engine. I've decided to keep it lightweight and without it until I can fully optimise it.
Looks so nice! And it's so easy to setup!
It took me seconds to set this up, and the effect it creates is beautiful!
I love the wide range of options, though I can't seem to be able to change the radius of a light without it throwing me an error. Anyways suggestions would be, fixing the error stated above and allowing custom light shapes with sprites? (Edit: while looking through the scripts I found out a way you can do that, but it might still be a cool feature)
Good and easy to use
Have tried several light asset before, this was very easy to add to my project, has no the biggest amount of functionality, but look good and works out of the box.
The smooth gradient light is wonderful. And being free!? Amazing! Kudos to Nik Sudan and his associates for creating this simple, yet wonderful lighting example. I plan on using this in my current project. The download on here does not include a "room" and/or "example" but does include all the core scripts required for the lighting. If you want to download a full example, FIRST, download it on here (to give him "credit" / "reputation") and then follow the link in the description for the full example. Not sure why it wasn't included in this download, but either way.... it's there and shouldn't be missed! Thanks guys. :)
