Grenade Launcher White Flares look like a white circle
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I got ugly looking flares - they look like a circle of white or green or whatever flare color I chose. {F19251}

Additional Information

The farther I get from launched flare the bigger this circle become. I tried different video settings from lowest to highest with different antialiasing (FXAA/SMAA) on/off and got the same result - see the screenshots. I'm using ASUS GeForce GTX 560 Ti with 314.22 drivers.

I get the same; I thought they were just "place holders" or unfinished until the beta/final release.

Nope, saw some screenshots on forums where they look awesome - lens effects and such.

I get the same however, i have an ATI 7950

Still the same.

agree, that the flares lack realistic quality +1

Hi, this is not flare, it is volume point light (used exaple as position light).
Flare is not visible for large distance.

I am not happy about this effect. I will want change this solution. Thank you very much for a feedback.

Gugla, the flares are referred to here as the ammunition type not the type of visual effect they produce. :)

Flare = ammunition (in this case)
Ugly effect = Volume point light

Related to #5381 (stars also look like large circles of light)

I would like change this point light. Now it is a procedural texture. I have a plan use a real photo for this effect, but now isn't a free programmer for this change. I'm sorry, we must wait.

We did change a marketlaights technology, please check it again. Thanks

It's no longer a solid blob, but it still looks bad.

You can now also observe the dimensions of the texture plane as the texture abruptly stops with sharp cutoff as seen in the screenshot below.

If it is light, why does it have such defined edges? (not talking about square clipping). Looks like you're firing chandeliers LOL

Hi, this sharp cut at borders are bug, it will fixed, but I want chat about visual effect. I find picture with flare in the sky. I think we don't have only flare over strong light.

On that picture you can see lightstreaks coming from the flares, instead of the halo which is used now. If that effect could be simulated it would be nice.
