    OH NO IT WILL PLAY SO BAD RAWRAWRAW!

    Have you read this?
    http://optimization.interlopers.net/index.php

    Use mat_wireframe 1 to see what gets rendered.


    It's probably the amount of fog though. The trees shouldn't be too costly to render.

    Yeah, but I'm still not very good at this. I think it is the fog though. How else can I make fog/steam?

    Right now it's a func_dustcloud. That's probably stupid? I'm not sure what else to do though.

    I guess that makes sense. I'll try some kind of particle system.

    I'll just make a medieval version entirely.

    I kinda want to do a series.

    Alright!

    Turns out it is definitely the func_dustcloud. Also turns out I am pretty bad at particle systems. Who can I convince to make me some fog/steam for this little spring?

    You can probably edit some of the hl2 steam vent textures pretty easily (keep the sprites, which are the hardest part). That's my suggestion.

    EDIT: what am I talking about? There is something like func_steam or smoke or something hold on let me find it..

    here it is...

    env_steam. Use it :O

    Unfortunately, env_steam comes out in a cone. I can't control the base size except by increasing particle size and in general it just doesn't work here. Duplicating it makes my TF2 crash, also! So that's neat.

    I think I really will have to make a particle system, but so far my attempts to understand tutorials are futile. I am having a really hard time learning to use the editor when all the tutorials are like "Screw knowing what anything is! This is how you make a fucking fireball!"

    hhhhh
