    I am busy creating a an indoor house but i am having a few problems with the following:

    1. I dont know how to make it darker inside the house than it is outside.
    2. I dont know how to make it completely dark outside the house walls to enable an indoor efffect where you cant see outside but only inside the house.
    3. I am busy on my "second floor" of the house but how do i make the second floor look like it is above the ground.

    Thankyou

    1. sry i can't help you with this one

    2. You can remove the 'outside' from the playable map area via terrain or blocking doodads

    3. I think there is a doodad called invisible platform, maybe you can use it? If not, you might need to create two rooms and link them with a portal hidden in a doodad with the shape of stairs.

    Let me know if you get it to work.

    1. and 2. :
    look in the tutorial section for the tutorial: torch system
    3.you have to watch out, you can't make that one unit is at floor one, and the other
    unit at floor 2, but at the same position. that won't work (except of triggering, which
    could be a pain for everyone, if it's possible to do that)
    you can also do what Link_Iceblade said.
    Create two rooms, each at another area of your map, and make rects, which
    teleports you to the other room.

    lower the ground, put your stairway there, lower the stairway also, and put some
    walls at the cliffs, so you cannot see them.
    then you have your stairway downwards :)
