The parallax and the wave effect are truly amazing WYE. Everything looks so smooth and perfectly realistic. I don't know if some "sparks" flying up from the lava, like NGB and me did it in our KLDC-Level (reference-video
) would add even more to the hot atmosphere? Actually i don't know, if it is even possible to add them in your case, since the parallax + wave effect must be very demanding already. But i thought i should nonetheless at least mention the idea.
I won't even speak about your exanimations. I can imagine, that they must've been a nightmare, but you eventually got it working and it makes the lava pillar look so phenomenal now. Having a bubble as a fair warning in advance was also a pretty wise thought.
You truly are amazing WYE and i will visit your thread regularily to check the progress. This hack is going to be the epitome of graphical awesomeness.
