Night animations video-tutorial

#1

Post by FVI »

Hello everyone!

Lately, i have figured out how to make a night animation, and so, I created this new video.

This video both explains how textures and coding works, explaining also how to debug a decentralized night frame, thing that stops many people from making night animations.

Once I understood it, I started to find them relatively easy, and with this video, i hope you will understand it too!

Here is the link to the video

If you want the code I used, feel free to take, study or edit it!
Do not worry for the red dots, they are just spaces and they should not ruin the code.

Code: Select all    Reset

[   { "id": "$nightanimation123", "type": "animation", "light": true, "light switching": true, "frames": [ { "bmp": "HTHLM1.png", "count": 1, "h": 32, "w": 32 } ], "rotation aware": false},   {     "type": "residential",     "id": "$greenhalftimbredhouse",     "text": "A house",     "author": "FVI",     "ordinal": 1,     "meta": {       "pca": {         "version": "4.0.3"       }     },     "frames": [       {         "bmp": "HTH5.png"       }     ],     "width": 1,     "height": 1,     "needs road": false,     "draw ground": true,     "animation": [{"id": "$nightanimation123", "x":0,"y":-25}]   } ]

If you provide two or four frames and set "rotation aware": true, the image changes to the next frame when the map rotates.

I am sorry for that. What in particular do you struggle in? Maybe I can help you.
