What Shaders can do


With shaders you can:

  • Make surfaces/volumes behave in certain ways ingame (water, lava, nonsolid, etc..)
  • Blend multiple textures together in various ways
  • Create surface sprites (useful for grass etc.)
  • Create blended terrain
  • Create scrolling, rotating textures.
  • Make textures glow ingame
  • Provide lighting to your map (light-emitting shaders)
  • Combinations of the above
