But it seems to drain quite quickly, though.
It was for demonstration purposes. It will most certainly last much longer in game. But don't make this thread about my phone, please. =P

How did you get the flame on the zippo working?

I thought you were the one who told me how to do this... Undecided
Anyway I extracted the frames from one of the particles, made it billboard, created a light and connected it with billboard, then I dublicated the light and the billboard, changed it's material,added the flicker option and played with the settings for both of the lights...I tryed to add more billboards because the extraction of te particle gave me 4 frames but the result was awful...
That's it!
I hope the explanation was clear enough...

The good thing with the zippo is that it makes the whole place scarier...It's kind of hard to explain..The normal lantern lets the player to have a wide lighted(visible) area but the zippo gives you very tiny area so it makes the player unable to know what is he going to see until he is close enough...Hope explained it right..

You're right but instead of this I could create something else so we won't have the same item twice...And after all it would be a spoil, right?

RE: [MODEL] Zippo Lantern

I like the model, its very creative, but is there a way to make it brighter?
I understand that the low light is how it was intended to be but it would be nicer if i could see the same distance, I guess however unrealistic that might be
