dark gloomy overcast skies plus ominous thundering in the background

i was playing around with weather trying to help fabrock and while i could not get it to rain without the zombies freezing i was able to get gloomy overcast skies which gives the game a much better visual look. and even better the zombies work great!

so here are a screenshot of how it normally looks for me

and here is the same screenshot with overcast skies

and here is another screenshot of how it normally looks for me

and here is the same screenshot with the overcast skies

i think it's a big improvement, the game was just too sunny. with the change i think it's just about right, what is missing is the rain and we are working on it.

as arglaar pointed out it may just be the rain layers are blocking the zombies line of site

so if your interested in having overcast skyies and a gloomy feel all you have to do is

extract Data0.pak\Data\Scripts\weather_none.scr to C:\Users\<username>\Documents\DeadIsland\out\Data\ Scripts

and change weather_none.scr to read

Quote:
import "weathers.scr"

sub main()
{
use Rainy( f_value = 0.0, s_name = "Start" );
use Rainy( f_value = 1.0, s_name = "End" );
}
