I may not have noticed if it’s already been done, but I’m looking to get some help figuring out how to use a weapon to deform and destroy terrain or other objects in the game world.
Here’s a short list of concepts:
fire at wall, at an angle: explosion at wall, if wall is small enough explosion on other side of wall, hole in wall from side fired from, cloud of vaporized detritus at impact site, extreme heat along path of vapor trail.
fire along wall: wall melts, extreme heat along vapor trail, extreme heat causes weapon to explode.
fire into wall: wall explodes, extreme heat along vapor trail, large cloud of vaporized detritus at impact site, extreme heat cloud takes longer to dissipate at impact site.
so I’m figuring that I’m going to have to create the pieces that the wall turns into when it explodes, as well as particles and emitters and meshes for the detritus clouds and vapor trails, and then just use math to determine how everything goes down when a plasma cannon creates a vapor trail near a wall or other object.
Is there maybe a tutorial that goes over some of this? I’m working my way through a few already, so if there’s one that I should be looking forward to, I’d like to know.
If there isn’t a tutorial for something like this, is anyone interested in making one? hehe?
