Time for action - adding height fog
Height fog is a great way to add atmosphere to your level. It can help set the mood and make
distant objects really feel like they're at a distance. You can add height fog to your level by
placing a height fog actor as follows:
1. Open your level, go to the Actor Classes tab of the generic browser. HeightFog can
be found under the Info category.
2. Select HeightFog , then add it to your level (right-click somewhere in the level and
choose Add HeightFog Here ).
3. You may not noice the efects of the fog right away, especially if you placed the
actor on the loor. That's because the posiion of the height fog actor you just placed
controls where the fog starts—if you placed it low (or on the floor), the fog starts
too low to affect your level.
