About:

Dynamic Weather_System is powerful tool for simulation of weather, distributed with collection of realistic, configurable, and scalable atmospheric effects, created to bring life into static environment, to make unique gameplay experience.
Weather profile is the main instrument of Dynamic Weather_System, which (beyond standard rain and thunder) unifies set of detailed weather effects that interact with each other on multiple levels and generate unpredictable and unique combination of atmosphere and environment.
By preserving high fidelity and performance, Dynamic Weather_System utilizes at maximum powerful engine tools (surround sound system, rendering, physics) to achieve realistic look, sound and feel of atmospheric and weather effects.

Dynamic Weather_System is distributed with set of weather scenarios, sounds, textures and models which is ready to use right after installation. Support of FlowGraph visual programming environment allows to easily configure and integrate Dynamic Weather_System into any type of project. Besides mentioned FlowGraph, Dynamic Weather_System supports CLI, Lua, Xml and C++ programming languages which is in combination with documentation, unleashes unlimited opportunities of usage and control of Dynamic Weather_System regardless of programming skills.

Because of flexible licensing and demo version availability everyone can start utilizing Dynamic Weather_System.

Today guys i would like to demonstrate you one of my spectacular experiments with dynamic Weather_system.
No more words just watch video and tell what you think about it.

For few of you who curios about how its done take a look into mini Tutorial #5 at this thread
http://www.crydev.net/viewtopic.php?f=355&t=126230

Also I've started InideGoGo campaign:

If you care about future of the project support it.

Mini Tutorial #1: "Usage of Weather_sys:Filter flow node"

1) Put on your level couple of weather_profiles by using drag and drop.

2) Switch Auto_setup on each of them and tweak any other setting of your choice.

3) Create flow graph on any of them and open it.

4) Drop Entity:Info, Weather_sys:Filter and Game:Start.

5) Connect them as showed on picture above.

6) Assign one of the Weather_profiles to Entity:Info.

7) Now you can jump into game and see that profile you added to Filter is ignored by weather_system, even with Auto_setup enabled.

This node could be useful in situations when you don't want to, for example, sunny day profile get automatically applied in dark locations.
Or if you wish to make rainy and cold weather in your mountains only.

Mini Tutorial #2: "Random weather with FlowGraph"

1) Load map into editor and navigate to entities rollup bar.

2) Drag and drop 3 weather_profile entities into your level.

3) Configure them as you wish but make sure that "Auto_setup" is switched off on each of them.

4) Create flow-graph on one of those profiles.

5) Drop Logic:RandomTrigger, Time:Timer nodes and 3 nodes of weather profiles that you just created.

6) Now connect and configure them as showed on picture above.

7) After entering game mode FlowGraph each 10 seconds will randomly choose one of 3 weather profiles and setup it.

What you'd just created is simple weather setup for your level that will apply random Weather_profile each 10 seconds of gameplay (Ofcourse you can configure it to do this in one hour for example).
