I’ve always planned that some levels would take place on polar ice, floating at sea. The latest Unity Asset Store Madness Sale includes the Ceto Water system that I’d long thought I might use for the sea. However I already have another called “Realistic Water” so thought it was time to evaluate that to decide whether to buy Ceto (or another, possibly PlayWay).
Here’s the very first integration of water into Snowman Scuffle with floating polar ice.
Obviously there are plenty of things that need fixing, e.g:
- The “replace-on-floor-if-you-slip-beneath-it” function needs disabling.
- The character controller doesn’t handle moving platforms yet!
- the bloom’s blown out.
- the sky-box needs rotating.
- The water surface could do with more details (e.g. specular highlights).
But ignoring these, it’s actually not a bad first step. That moving platform one is probably most tricky but, compared to how bad I feared this would be, it’s barely noticeable! Once fixed, it should be good!
How good will fighting, CTF’ing, racing, etc on blocks of floating ice feel! (I’m kind’a hoping the answer will be “great!” 😉 ) Let me know your thoughts!
