    Has anyone made a lava texture yet?

    This material editor is kicking my ***, I can't seem to duplicate the lava effect from UT2004

      Seems like they basically put the editor's manual in the bonus dvd.
      I was just looking for some lava for dm-codex, every UT has had lava in it.
      UT3 is no longer a UT game in my book as it has no lava
      Unles someone makes some, it's gonna have to be slime, which looks nowhere near as good

          I made some custom LavaTex for my upcomming map DM-Towers... you can have my texture/material after I've released the map.

            Maybe someone will convert Lava from Gears Of War? It was just perfect

                Would you mind posting the details of what you selected in the material editor window? I *need* a lava texture for a map I'm making, and I understand the fundamentals of the editor, but not enough to make a lava material from scratch. I will, of course, give you full credit for the material.

                  Don't touch the lava, you might get burned.

                    Hey there Halo! I've been keeping an eye on that map of yours, it's looking good. How on EARTH did you get that lava material into the map?! I'm fiddling with the material edtior and it's just driving me crazy!

                        Making the lava shader was trial and error. I just kept fiddling until I was happy with the result. The thing about my lava is that it looks like **** when its unlit...


                        ...and looks great when it is lit...


                        It ended up being pretty complex with all the tweaking i did to it so it would probably be better if i just showed you.



                        Oh and I only halfway know what I'm doing. When it comes to optimizing, some of this stuff may be cut from the shader (without effecting it too much) so it in no way represents the final version.

                          looks very good actually, but could you please be so kind, to pass on the texture, just the texture you used for the lava? a link or something? please?

                          thnks

                            I am making a lava texture to use in a later map, once I have it finished, I'll plop it up here.
