RE: Billboard HELP!

Always try to use the search bar. I simply typed in "billboard" and got a few tutorials.

Try this:

RE: Billboard HELP!

Use a fixed axis billboard with a color value of 0.1 for each R, G and B. This makes the billboard more opaque. The default value makes them REALLY bright, especially when you start duplicating them, and it honestly looks like crud. Tweak them, look at them from all angles. If you can't get them right, open up Amnesia's default maps. FG got their billboards right Smile
