how can we make the snow effect like atcjoe did

Recommended Posts

what would be even more cool though to is that if in Tower!3D Pro that you could have the deicing trucks deice planes and have snow removal equipment to that would remove snow from the runways maybe that can be put in The XX version of tower.

You could put this idea into the Towerxx wishlist forum and see if they are willing to do that.

I really hope that someone knows how to make it look like it is snowing at KJFK in tower 3!D Pro like in the video that atcJoe shot to publish on his youtube channel

Go on his video comments and ask him then! 😉

You sure he will tell? 😉

Because of the loop it can be a video or image sequence with alpha. I doubt that the snow is an effect that comes from the game engine. I would solve it with an overlay during or after the recording. With the foggy mode and an appropriate opacity setting it can appear as if the snow is behind the windows (ADIRS, etc.).

Of course I can't say how Joe did that exactly. Maybe he actually programmed it into the game somehow, who knows. I don't think it really matters that much. In the end it's a fantastic idea and looks great.

Ha ha. Probably not but got the reaction wanted I guess.

I am with you as it looks like a pre/post production technique I have seen before called Particle Snow effect or something similar possibly.

Good idea though and another reason for "seasons" ability etc if/when the new version comes out 😁

Nope, definitely not via the game engine. The recorded loop indicates it was done using an overlay or some other software.

Cool visual effect if you're into that, but if he can get the snow to stick to the ground I'll really be impressed. 😀
