About:

Dynamic Weather_System is powerful tool for simulation of weather, distributed with collection of realistic, configurable, and scalable atmospheric effects, created to bring life into static environment, to make unique gameplay experience.
Weather profile is the main instrument of Dynamic Weather_System, which (beyond standard rain and thunder) unifies set of detailed weather effects that interact with each other on multiple levels and generate unpredictable and unique combination of atmosphere and environment.
By preserving high fidelity and performance, Dynamic Weather_System utilizes at maximum powerful engine tools (surround sound system, rendering, physics) to achieve realistic look, sound and feel of atmospheric and weather effects.  

Dynamic Weather_System is distributed with set of weather scenarios, sounds, textures and models which is ready to use right after installation. Support of FlowGraph visual programming environment allows to easily configure and integrate Dynamic Weather_System into any type of project. Besides mentioned FlowGraph, Dynamic Weather_System supports CLI, Lua, Xml and C++ programming languages which is in combination with documentation, unleashes unlimited opportunities of usage and control of Dynamic Weather_System regardless of programming skills.

Because of flexible licensing and demo version availability everyone can start utilizing Dynamic Weather_System.

Tutorial #21: "Disabling\enabling new DWS effects via console"

Starting with version 1.8 Dynamic Weather_System was extended with group of new universal utilities that accelerate integration process of new effects and simplify their utilization.
Couple of those utilities is dws_disable and dws_enable console commands that perform enable\disable operation on given DWS effect.

1. Launch game and load level or enter game mode of editor.
2. Press '~' key to open console window.

0951352001448382153.png

3. Enter "dws_setup tutorial" (fig. 1), this is id of xml profile created in tutorial #16.

0612337001448382172.png

4. Examine transition between current level environment and tutorial profile (fig. 2).
5. Then enter "dws_disable rainbow" into console window.
6. Repeat step 3, notice that rainbow effect would not be displayed.
7. Enable rainbow effect by typing "dws_enable rainbow" into console window.

Congratulations, You've just learned new way of environment effects control via console!
Furthermore You may need this to disable DWS effect in cinematics of Track View.
You can view DWS effect id by using "dws_debug 12" console command.

3. Enter "dws_export" (fig. 1).
4. Open file located in "root_engine_dir\game_folder\libs\dws\level_name.xml" and keep somewhere one of the exported profile id.
5. Load new level into editor.
6. Use "dws_setup exported_profile_id" console command to setup exported profile.

dws_export command will help You to move configured weather setup into DWS library and make it available on other levels.
