Lightning within HeroEngine is a node, which can be created via the Create Menu, or added in other ways such as via the Fx System.

Lightning in area design

For the purpose of area design, adding lightning is done with the Create Menu, which adds a specialized node that produces a lightning-like effect.

To modify lightning, click on the node, and view its properties in the Properties Panel.

Tutorial

Now, we'll slow the lightning down to examine it in more detail.

Point to point lightning

In this tutorial, we'll set up an "arc" of lightning between two towers.

There should now be lightning arcing from the top of one post to the other!

Lightning as a special effect

Lightning (sometimes referred to as a Zap or FxZap) is also one of the things that can be used in the Fx System. For more information, see the FxGUI and Basic FxTasks.
