When I "force" the alpha blending that generates graphical errors and that is why I want to know if that has a solution or at least an explanation.



Obviously the problem doesn't happen if I don't force alpha blending.



The reason I do it is to make the FSH alpha channel work but it causes problems when close to other LODs.

Before



After



I have looked for information on the internet but the truth is that it is not very clear to me ((I have no experience on these issues)

With your method the lod problem seems to be solved but the semi-transparency does not work 100% although it is a little better than the maxis one.

So do you have a SC4 Plugin Manager with them? Just only for the Windows Version 7/8/10. Your model will be release it on them. Hope this helps.

Nice textures!  &apls

I have experience creating BATs/Plugins. My only "problem" is that I want to improve the alpha blending that sc4 uses but it seems that it is not possible so far.

Good luck with your projects. GoFSH will help you to improve the alpha blending with BMP files only.

Heavy rainfall is quite alright.


Squalls are not good enough to be blowing winds with effect dir is properly and is too dark on these modified.

It could be like a severe thunderstorm in association with tropical rainstorms needs to be improved.  &apls

A tropical rainstorm is a cyclonic weather effect system that the storm is expected to move from west to eastwards across the region of your city.



A new tropical rainstorm weather effects system will be an issue for a severe or supercell thunderstorms, extratropical storms or cyclones, and windstorms with your very own storms like everyday.

Is it very difficult to create a ripple effect in the water? I can do the texture.

This storm should lasts continue to have an effect for just 2 minutes and 38 seconds.

During the timing is the animation of Effect Dir that make up the action, this translates as the timing of the action.
