K-ON! Clubroom – Seasons!

The seasonal system has been massively improved, along with the 2D/3D skybox visible outside the window. There are now a total of four “seasons” that the application can choose between:

k-on-71-seasons

Each season has dramatically different lighting and a custom 2D skybox, complete with hand-painted clouds. The colours of each skybox are based on references from the anime.

There are also unique sound and visual effects to complete the mood, such as heat haze/cicadas in Summer and chirping crickets at night.

I will be adding a Winter season as well, but first I need to close the windows to keep in the heat. It’s only sensible.

Even the Moon makes an appearance during the evening.k-on-73-moonlightEvery season also sees the Sun in a different position in the sky, as determined by an accurate simulation of the Earth’s orbit. All the calculations are set for the year 2009 in Toyosato. I even checked the phase of the Moon.

 

See you next time, under the light of a waxing crescent.
