Hey -

Just found this. Thought it would be great if this is how Geoscape clouds could be:

Also, at the end of this next video, imagine how great the Battlescape lighting would be if we had something similar!

And weather effects:

Some some ideas to get people thinking :D

Those are really impressive CG! Perhaps something like that could be used for some cut scenes? Deimos' opening game scene included craft flying through clouds, something like those links would be awesome!

Well if anyone's got an idea on how to do it without me going through and keyframing cloud layer groups for movement I'd appreciate it :) BTW that's how I'm doing it so far.

Hey -

I don't know if its any use, but the author of those vids also has a page on his site with variations of the code. Perhaps that might be useful?

Those pink dawn clouds at the beginning of the second movie would be great for an intro - imagine them being pierced by some black, pointy alien craft or somesuch.
