A neat trick with flowing lava tiles that I discovered

    Put a polished ice tile on top of the flowing lava tile and then the lava looks like real volcano lava even more so!. It's pretty cool.

    Polished ice as in the Building Blocks from New Halas/the Marketplace? Not the ones from Frostfell? :)

    Thanks for the preview! It's either SEE-yur-dree-fa, or just "Drifa" ;)

    Ah! "Drifa," not "Sigrd." Gotcha! :)

    You have to wonder if it has something to do with the Ice Tiles canceling out various particle effects? But yeah, it looks very authentic that way, because lava will cool around the "edges" and on the surface, once it gets up into the atmosphere from underground! :)

    who really doesn't think Gollum would've "splashed and sunk" into the lava at the end of RtoK; a) he would've been carbonized before he hit the surface, because of the sheer heat involved (unless Jedi have magical/psychic "cool/protect ourselves like we're wearing volcanologist suits" powers, so would they in that fight), and b) whatever would be left of him wouldn't be dense enough to "sink" in molten rock...be more like Aunt Beru and Uncle Owen near the end of that act of "Star Wars: A New Hope" (oops! Spoilers!), and c) even if the Ring is "powered" or "stabilized" or whatever by the Horcrux bit of Sauron, the gold itself wouldn't've lasted much longer in that heat than Gollum :-/

    *Has never lived close enough to a volcano to throw something in...…* now I feel like I'm missing out!

    I'm glad you all like my suggestion. :)

    Well, I haven't either (have yet to visit Hawaii or Alaska...I should :D), but I like reading up on science stuff...keep my hand in. ;->
