Thunderbolt Script

by
aliascartoons


Description:
Create a dramatic scenery for your mission with the use of: thunders with or without lightning bolts, sound and flickering.
Also you can create raindrops, debris in the air when you have a relatively strong wind and local fog to add something to the atmosphere.
So called local fog is not meant to replace the arma fog generated via editor or script but to complete it.

Find the right combination of settings for your mission and let me know what worked the best for you.

All sounds are custom, disable Lightnings in your mission via mission editor or script to avoid interference and overlapping.
Lightning effect is generated around a randomly picked playable unit.
The sounds are pretty big in size and loud. Adjust volume and list of files from description.ext if necessary.

You can use, adapt and/or modify the script as you see fit.
If you find nice ways to modify the script for better effects let me know.
Tested on dedicated but not in MP, any feedback will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you and have fun!


Installation / Usage:
Un-pbo the mission and read the comments or watch the video tutorial for more information.
Play around with the parameters and let me know what values create the best effect for you.
