    Slight issue.

    Effects not dropping at feet now, but being placed way off in the distance almost out of reach.

    Placed in Erstwhile Sanctuary PC/EU ( if that helps )

    I've noticed you have updated the amount of effects to the list, so perhaps a bug slipped in ?

    Awesome add-on to compliment EHT

    Great work

    @Molecule Thank you, Molecule! So I just finally went back and updated all of the effects to spawn a slight distance in front of your character, rather than directly on top of you, as I had a number of people report to me that the system wasn't working. When I investigated it, it turned out that those players were all playing in first person mode, so they just didn't see the effects that spawned directly under their feet. So the decision to spawn the effects out in front of you was to deter that scenario as well as to prevent confusion.

    Of course, if you find that effects are spawning in some crazy position, please, by all means, let me know and I will make sure to fix it. <3

    Still having issues i'm afraid.

    I get the animated swirl around FX ( next to EHT text )

    I then select an effect, the ingame sound makes a noise ( confirming i selected something ? )

    But the effect spawns nowhere in the cave ( Erstwhile Santuary )

    Then the animated swirl around FX doesn't re-appear again , until i reloadUI

    This is with housing mode active.

    Tried both 1st and 3rd person view with same results

    Any ideas

    @immozz01 It sounds like at least TaosGroup Tools ( group pvp add-on ), based on what @molecule was just writing. But there may be others.

    In fact, if anyone finds other conflicts and can isolate the add-on(s) that cause issues with this, I would be super thankful if you could let us know here. I will do my best to resolve the conflict one way or another. <3

    Obviously I still have a lot of reading to do before I'll be able to really start using this amazing add-on. One thing I'd be grateful if someone could tell me is this; Are other players NOT grouped with me able to see the effects yet? And do they have to have the add-on themselves? I am especially interested in doing night skies in a few of my homes but would really like the answers to these questions before I dive in.

    As of 8.9.97 (The 8.9.99 version is current as of this writing) visitors not grouped do not see the effects, based on my testing: disclaimer - I have made some mistakes with this.

    A person on R_K's forum noted the snow effect clipped the ice effect. If that hasn't been solved by R_K a possible workaround is using fireflies and turning them white. Fireflies seem more forgiving when it comes to clipping. Disclaimer- I am very new to this.

    Here is a Psiijic villa test with fireflies

    first off, you don't need to do a lot of reading :) install addon, 1 click and you have a different sky :P

    for now you need to group with ppl who have the addon yes, perhaps that will change some soon.
    why would that stop you from testing and using it?
    I mess around in all houses, if you change the sky, it will just show a normal sky to a person not having the addon? if everyone waits till all others have the addon then this will go nowhere..

    don't be a sheep, go crazy and change your sky :) its your house!

    OKAY I'LL DO IT! LOL And of course I already bug people to get your add-on for the magic carpet! lol I am now embarked on turning my Grand Psyjic Villa into The Midnight Cathedral... which is mostly a spooky overgrown crypt. A night sky is totally necessary!

    With the sky changing effects is it possible to blot out the view of the tent above? THAT might actually make this place worth getting!

    This entire update is beyond amazing, you truly are a wizard @R_K!

    I simply have to ask out of curiosity, is there any chance that an addon like this can create functionable water? In the sense of swimmable. My first assumption would be hell no, but I also thought that about all of these new effects (and the animations too!), so I figured I may as well ask.

    I'll play around with these new effects soon. But damn... I really didn't think anything like this would be possible in a mod, I'm really impressed.

    Perhaps if you lift an ice sheet really high and make it really really big. Just messing around -

    Combined with dark sky at night. It's far from pleasing. I really hate the tent though.

    gj thinking outside the box edbudd :)

    @R_K is it possible to create a bubble curtain effect to place behind aquarium glass?
    the glass is awesome, but to complete the illusion I would wish for a bubble curtain, small bubbles floating vertically upwards, will have to look natural also, so not every 10 centimetres a column but 40, 60, 130 a new column?

    hope you can find the time to look into it, would be a great addition and make it complete, now there is no movement at all behind the glass and looks unnatural

    if you do manage to make a bubble screen, perhaps its nice to make an extra one that you can use as a magical divider instead of the wooden ones currently available as furniture..

    THanks! yeah that's not ideal, there's some strangeness going on there. So I just tried the Night Sky at the Grand Psyjic Villa and...it just turns the sky black? And of course does nothing to darken everything else to make it look like it's night. :( I'm guessing the "veils of darkness" must be used but I will have to hopefully find a tutorial to watch as I had zero luck figuring out how to make it work. My dreams of perpetual night time still seem beyond my grasp. *cries*

    Also, I get needing to have the add-on to see the effects. I just wish we didn't have to be grouped. Today I also noticed that only my character that had set the night sky could see it. When I logged in with other characters it was just the usual default game sky. This makes me sad.

    @R_K , will we ever be able to use FX in animations or be able to start/stop them using triggers? :o That would be super duper specialooper! (You had to know someone would ask eventually. lol)

    @MornaBaine For sure! So the Night Sky and Aurora Borealis, Midnight are two environmental effects that can blot out the entire sky. Those effects work like any of the other effects in that you can move them after being placed. So, if you place one of those two effects, and then enter Housing Editor (F5) mode, look straight up. You can click on that paint bucket way up in the sky (using Cursor Mode) to edit the effect. If you use that editor to move the effect lower, you should be able to get it eclipse most, if not all, of those background elements outside of the globe.
