Version: The Conquerors
I was testing around with triggers, and suddenly had another effect then I wanted. It looked like Lightning, so I decided to contribute to the blacksmith by making this tutorial.

I know I'm probably not the one who found out about lightning, but that doesn't take away that I'm not allowed to make a tutorial about it.
Inside, you'll learn how to make Lightning, with just triggers :D
However, some bugs might come if you cheat with marco polo, but It's worth the try, ain't it? :D
So, If you want to learn how to make Lightning, Download this!

If you use this in one of your maps, please give me credits!

I have given this a 2.5, because although it explains that basic way to make lightning, it doesn't really explain the triggering of how to get lightning , and only gives basic info and instructions, thus I don't think this will be in-depth enough for newbies to scenario designing.

(This utility is very helpfull, if you are using lightning. :D

In the scenario, you called it thunder, but that doesnt take away[or add] to the rating, so just for anyone wondering, when he says thunder, he means lightning.

The only thing missing is how to make thunder. Something really useful would be submitting an .mp3 file that people could use for thunder. Maybe someone should do that!

This gets a 4 because the areas where the map revealers are placed show up last when being removed, but I dont know how to fix that.

I think I will use this technique![dont worry, Ill credit you])

Additional Comments:
Its good if you need lightning. All you have to do is creat a map revealer after 2 or 3 seconds, then create a constant looping trigger to remove the map revealer. It is really helpful.

@ H P :

Well... One point (thanks for the review and nice comment btw)

You don't have to REMOVE the map revealers, that won't do...

You'll have to use the Effect 'Kill Object', then It'll work...

@ Epic Commander :

Thanks for the review, though It didn't really helped me :)

So you are saying that I should make it clearer for other people to make it? So I have to put instructions to it?

Maybe that's something for one day, I'm kinda busy now =)

Greetings,

hunnic paladin Instructions?! Why?

#1: This isnt in the New Files anymore, so it wont be as popular as it used to be.

#2: Are you people to lazy to look at the triggers?! I mean really! How hard is it to open the scenario editor and study the triggers? There are only a few.

I just say the heck with it. Let it be what it is. I liked it, and might actually use it for Mystery Maze II.

Additional Comments:
First off all, I like the idea. thunder and lightning Can create a fearful atmosphere. But it should look more realistic, in your scenario the light flashes to fast and in a ritme.

but the biggest improve would be sound, if you could hear the thunder and heavy winds it would be more realistic.

PS: I'm Dutch too nice to see other dutch people on AOK Heaven!
