The weather effect is great, it really adds up to the whole thing!
I did have a small problem at first try because I instinctively use wsad and not arrows, the level didn't crash but I had to close it because of all the audio screeching :) Second try with arrows & pressing w just once was much, much better :)

Cheers ! - slight improvement coming soon however.
I just worked out a day/night cycle for 24 hours time based on the sun cycle so should be ok to use in my game now.
I can advance the sun position via 'movementspeed' if I want to show sleeping or time warps like that also.

not in the demo - press W for storm. W to cancel.
This was just a test.

In my game will be random though with all sorts of other weather...

I just tried it and the audio is really bad - just keeps repeating and gets louder and louder! Had to get out of the game before it destroyed my speakers.

Graphics looks good.

The inventory system is great - any way to buy or get that?

I made a free basic one if you want: http://lasttrump.net/gamedev.html

The video explaining how I did it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u2kNmFx05uE

You could adjust it and make it better also but a good start I think..because it totally works...

I'm gonna use the sound effects in my game so maybe I wont sell it as whats $30-50 anyway...the sound issue is just weather as W which is also forward (that's all). The rain effects did take some time etc..

Any way to share how you did the weather and day/night - or better yet, a step-by-step tutorial?

I would buy a complete advanced inventory system if you wish to sell.

Hi, its not automated in any way as yet. This is the very last thing I need to work out and master in my game. Everything else has been done pretty much like load, save, inventory, change scenes, time speed up etc etc.

I only have rain setup so its not ready for sale in any way as yet.
