Enhance Effect Animations

Hey everyone,

Time to show off some more features.

Up until now, our effects (internally) have had these features, however, their representation on the screen itself was not yet introduced.┬áThis week I’ve introduced enhanced animations for those effects !

Added visual representations of the following effect abilities:

  • Delayed effects that occur only after a certain period of time
  • Recurring effects that will continue to be applied over time

Added positional options for effect animations:

  • Area: This allows us to “center” an effect on a group of targets
  • Follow: This attaches directly to each target and remains on them until completed.

I’ve created the following spells to show off the majority of the new animation displays:

Effect: Sandblast
Recurring: Once every 3 turns
Duration: Lasts 6 turns then is removed.
Features: Applies to each target separately and displays animation only upon triggering.

Effect: Poison Cloud
Recurring: Once every 3 turns
Duration: Lasts 6 turns then is removed.
Features: Applies to each target separately and shows a continual animation.

Effect: Delayed Blast Fireball
Recurring: None
Duration: None
Delayed: 3 turns must pass before it is triggered.
Features: Applies to each target separately one time only.

Effect: Firewall
Recurring: Once every 2 seconds. No turns required.
Duration: Lasts 6 seconds then is removed.
Features: Applies as an area effect and is not attached to any target.

Here’s a demo video showing off the new spells and animations !
