UE4 Noob Fire Critique


#1

Hey guys,

I’ve been trying to level up my noob skills so I thought creating a fire would be a good way to do that. I’m relatively happy with it despite some obvious flaws but have really taken a lot away from this. Once again, many thanks. :slight_smile:

The shapes of the fire is really nice. I like the little embers and smoke. Biggest thing for me is the popping out of the sprites when they expire. Overall nice work, feels like fire!


#3

At the end of life, the particles must be slowed down and make their death more smooth


#4

Thanks for the feedback guys. Really appreciate it. Will take it on board and make the necessary adjustments and re upload soon. :slight_smile:


#5

Added a little more to this. Reduced some of the popping and slowed the particles over their life. Feedback always welcome. :slight_smile:


#6

Cool. Add a few particles with random vectors directed slightly to the side.


#7

you have to define the source of the fire. The stones are the fire emitter ? :smiley: think about what releases this energy. Also your heat level remains the same all the way. Play around with colors


#8

Cheers guys, i’ll get to work on this asap! :slight_smile:


#9

Added a little more to this. Still having some troubles with the fire colour remaining to consistent but added a small bowl of coals to help give the flames a little more context.
