Is there any way i can tweak the colors dynamically through another blueprint? I tried with the "get all actors of class" function and setting the colors of the clouds by a timeline, everything else connected to the timeline does its thing but the volumetric clouds wouldn't change. Are the properties somehow fix?

Yeah this is good but it doenst capture the 2d look it still looks 3d. How about copying the movement of 2d animation because this looks way too smooth. 1 example is using the classic by twos which most studios do or also use 24 fps to really capture the 2d feel

Google is said to work on a new gaming platform and streaming service called Yeti that will compete with XBox and PlayStation. The giant is working on a futuristic game-streaming service, with an idea of launching a physical console. 

Gizmodo states that “Yeti” will use Internet to support the service similar to PlayStation Now. Both Yeti and Now use the concept of Netflix, when you can stream titles on a one-off subscription basis, without the need to buy hard copies.

Microsoft’s Xbox One also has a streaming service called Xbox Game Pass, but it requires users to download the games to their consoles instead of streaming. The Verge has also mentioned that Google has invited former PlayStation and Xbox executive Phil Harrison to lead the development.

The thing here is that the new project will allow gamers to stream games via Chrome and ChromeCast and that’s definitely a huge advantage.

Google has already stepped into the gaming market with Nexus Q on the mobile side, but a home entertainment system is a whole new world.

@Warkarma Or, perhaps it will be good. And indies will get good exposure. I’ve already tinkered with streaming gaming services, and while they aren’t issue-free yet, it works and opens up the playing field for a larger audience. Google has a lot of processing power available to them. That combined with dozens… Hundreds of other feasible technologies, it wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility for them to nail this while at the same time making it approachable for indie and AAA developers alike. Those lines are quickly blurring. People need to get over the way free-to-play games are… Read more »

Maybe, it’s going to be a good one. Who knows.

Lol. This will end up like a Android market. Full of loot boxes and pay to win games. Also zero exposure for devs who didn’t get any advertising from Google. And maybe yet another platform for exclusive game titles…
