    Good job man, it looks awesome. You think you could delay the time between some strikes? I mean dont get me wrong its awesome, but it seems a little too quick.

    if theres a way you could make a random setting between 5- 45 seconds between strikes that would be more true to nature. I live in Florida, i know storms. Ive seen some hecktic ones, but usually strikes are pretty spaced out. But by all means a few moments of rapid strikes would also set the realism bar that much higher. Just my 2 cents.

    Good thinking! I'm in the middle of figuring out the programming for that. Since I am using Osculation programming I really have no idea to yo randomize that.

    When I figure out how to make it more random and spread out I'll post another video.

    Thanks for the input :)

    In fact, heres a real time shot of a thunderstorm in action here in sunny Florida... for reference. this is within 2 minutes time. What i didnt capture, is one strike that was seriously 200 yds away. Another one took out the power for a second. its where i tun towards the tank lol.

    As you can see, your rendition of a lot of strikes would work mimicking this storm were having ... lol but i still think a little duration would be the cherry on top. I just would hate for you to show an epileptic person your tank, and then they seize out on you... lol
