Lava

Submitted by HappyTauren
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
You put this on the center of the map, then lower it down, and the whole map is going to have lava below that level. It pretty much fits a 64x64 map, so if your map is larger you will need multiple lava doodads.

    Yeah it looks nice but it also eats fps like children eat up candy on Christmas Eve. I suggest that you to create a smaller version of this model like the water model from the UTM. So one can use this model for multiplayer maps.

    Extremly awsome model!

    if it's eating cpu or fps and doesn't work in mp, you're using it wrong. Scale it 2x and make sure its very center is always visible to every player. Also, this can't be done lije the water model because it has to tile, you'd have seams since they don'u appear at the same time..

    Great idea, great model. THANKS!

    EDIT 27/3/2016: Testing this in a map was disappointing. I scaled it to 2x so it almost covered the entire map, and it worked perfectly in the editor, however in-game in didn't show. You can't see it in-game because it's out of the screen radius like Arhowk said, there has to be a unit having the center of the lava within its line of sight at all times for this to work. I'm really disappointed because I was really looking forward to using this.
