Legends of Aethereus Weather System
You can change the time of day to a specific time (dawn, noon, dusk or night) and also change the speed at which time goes by. At speed setting 0, time will stand still. You can also select a weather type; sunny, fair, gloom or storm.
To hide the controls, press "Hide". To get the controls back, press the button "Show" which is in the top right corner of the Weather Demo. Q&A
Q: Why are you doing this?
A: In part to show the community what we're working on, and to give something back - also to get feedback from you guys.
Also it demonstrates our dynamic weather system and shows you how the weather can change your situation as a player.
Q: Nothing happens when I press reflections-button for the water!
A: Yes it does. If you up the speed of time, you'll notice the water reflects differently from day to night. If you're getting poor performance, it's recommended that you run your water on reflections off.
Q: There are red dots in the sky, what are those?
A: This can happen over time with built-in graphics cards. Just refresh the window and it should disappear.
Q: The water turned red, what happened?
A: This happens when you turn the reflections of the water on/off and switch back from fullscreen to windowed view. If you toggle the water reflections, it goes away.
Q: Why is it so slow?Help us out!
A: This is a demo taken straight out of our game, which is currently in beta-stage. It can be a bit heavy on certain computers.
Right now we're in the process of completing our quest. We'd love to get your feedback on what kind of weather you like best! Please take a screenshot in YOUR ideal conditions, post it here on the forum, and tell us why you like that weather so much!
