How can I achieve the fire/lava effect?

  • We can easily get the water effect, there is a dedicated effect for that but what about fire? How can we achieve in C3?

    I need a fire/lava type effect for my platformer game, beneath the tiles like the one we see in Super Mario Bowser stage but not exactly similar to that but a bit more realistic like we got the water effect.

    Here the C3P which I tried with a Tilled background and a Fire png.

    Please help.

  • Try tuning the water effect a little and you may end up with something ok (but it will have a hard edge at the borders.)

    This looks good, but it's a GPU killer due to the effect applied to the many fire sprites to create a nice ragged dynamic edge on top of the lava, perhaps something to inspire you to try something which has less perf impact than this example.

  • For proper fire you're gonna want to look into things like masking / overlays, scrolling textures (like offset in TiledBG object), particle spawners, blend modes, etc.

    This is in Unity but you get the gist: youtube.com/watch

    Thanks Mikal for your effort, This not exactly what I'm looking for but you made it quite good I got some idea how to use your logic in a diffrent way for fire, Thanks, Appreciated.

    Fire.c3p

    I saw you uploaded the c3p directly into construct website and shared that URL here! How did you do that? How do I upload .c3p to the forum without using Gdrive/DropBox?

    Wow!! Didn't realize that it under my nose all the time, my bad. I will try to make it fit for my platformer.

    Thank you so much, dop2000
