Just a relatively quick festive scene to get me back into the swing of things, and I think it worked - I'm that much closer to opening my koenigsegg project again :o

Had a bit of fun with this, played around a little with particles again and was surprised to find that I hadn't forgotten much :) One thing I didn't try though, is there a way of making sprites pick a random shader or image file? Or do you have to have multiple emitters/particle systems?

I rendered this out in 'dual-monitor' size (2x 1920x1200), so feel free to add a little festivity to your desktop :)

Heh, I think I'd have to agree with you on that one, can't be taking away the black series :B And I haven't used it as a desktop cos I've got 3 screens and it looks weird :P :ugeek: :ugeek: :ugeek:

Nice simple and clean. I like it man, but can you look me in the eye (figuratively) and tell me that the largest snow flake on the far right side, doesn't bother you :D

I actually quite liked it :P Keeping in mind that it would be on the second screen, so compositionally it'd add a point of interest for the 'right image'...

or do you just mean the crappy image of a snowflake I found on google?




:P

I just presumed that the low quality of the snow flake would have been annoying you....... wow, you think you know a guy and bam he just goes and does a complete 180 in anal retentive perfectionism if you actually attempt to read this you have far to much time on your hands

Well perfectionism kinda goes out the window when you're procrastinating procrastination...


And no I do not have too much time on my hands thank you very much.
