Recommended Posts

Hello, I want to make the lasers for a space shooter game and I didn't found a way to make them to look good. I tried to do them using 2 sprites that intersects at the middle, and looked good but not always, when it looked like an X. I also tried to use a cilinder like mesh but this also looked bad because I couldn't make it glow. Does someone has any ideea on how to make this look good? Thanks.

Are you using shaders? 2D or 3D?

In 2D, you should make a textured line (rotated rectangle) with a laser texture, that's what I did and it worked nicely.

In 3D, you should try a rotated (angle of point 2 from point 1) billboarded quad with a texture of a lazer (with translucency), which gives you free glow.
