well lads, i need a good idea for a melter effect. i mean, we cant do heat bending like in hl2. so what to do? we have beams, particles, tracers, projectiles at hand, but how to build a melter effect with that?

yeah, i remmber, how we were talking about the orange effect quite some months ago :-). on IRC, you were saying, that a heat shimmer would only affect models, no brushes?
