Happy Birthday Emily! :hug: I made this for you.

Spring Rain is my first Environment Sketch, a simple but evocative depiction of a scene or place.

This is not a graphic sketch but a procedural one, a viewpoint generated by code that describes how the scene is to be constructed and how it evolves over time.

Spring Rain is a tribute to plants and rain. Please enjoy. :aww:

This is quite amazing. I love how serene it is... Not to mention the excellent physics involved. Excellent flash!

Cool, good job. The only thing I think is lacking is the ability to increase the amount of rain. :+fav:

Hmmm, several people have suggested that to me actually... I guess the next time I make one of these, I'll add an option to increase the amount of rain! :) Thanks for the :+fav:.

Very interesting piece.
I've been staring at this and changing scenes for 15 minutes. XD
I love the movement of the leaves..creating this must take a lot of brain-work..

It's great to hear that you found it interesting enough to stare at it for 15 minutes! That's very encouraging to hear. :D

Yes, you could say it took a lot of brain-work... :writersblock:

this is so amazing. you've made little jello orb things out of the leaves... this is brilliant. you did a really fantastic job on this haha.

the random branch shape generation is really great, it's nice and different every time but every one of them looks great. even the background is random... really good job man.

Do you use as3 per chance?

Yes! IvoryDrive likes something I made! :D :D :faint:

Thank you.

I actually used simple AS2, with the same sort of physics as the ragdoll game I made earlier. The plant structure is rather more complex than the ragdolls, but that's basically how it works - like Gish. Hmmm, I should probably try taking those plant-generation routines and applying them to some more complex forms than these simple vines...

I'm quite happy with the background generator - it's basically a bunch of blurred particle trails around a few gravity wells - and I like how well it lends itself to imagining something more complex behind it.

Can you guess how I did the sounds? :D

Listen closely to the leaf-hit-by-raindrop sound effects. Or should I say, the lack of them... :devilish:

This is very neat and cool. I love the sounds and the way each leaf moves when it's hit by the rain drops. Changing the scene is a awesome factor too!

Thanks! I appreciate you explaining what you like about it. :)

I recorded the sounds in my backyard, sometime last year I think. Anyway, thanks for the first comment!
