Getting Started With The Waterfall System

Creating A Waterfall Object

We create a waterfall object from the Hierarchy's Create menu:

2D Object → Game2D Water Kit → Waterfall Object

Create 2D Waterfall Object from the Hierarchy's Create menu

Resizing The Waterfall Object

We resize the waterfall object right in the scene view using the Rect Tool, or we can just provide the width and the height in the waterfall component inspector.

Resize Waterfall Object in the component inspector

Script Reference

1
waterfallObject.MainModule.SetSize(new Vector2(width, height));

Sorting The Waterfall Object Relative To Sprites

Before trying to sort the waterfall object relative to sprites, we first need to make sure that the Rendering Queue property, under Rendering Options in the waterfall material inspector, is set to Transparent.

Note

The Rendering Queue property is set to Transparent by default.

Waterfall Material Rendering Options

Then, under the Rendering Properties in the waterfall component inspector, we specify the sorting layer as well as the order within this layer.

waterfallObject.RenderingModule.SortingLayerID = SortingLayer.NameToID("Default");
waterfallObject.RenderingModule.SortingOrder = 0;

We will look into the other rendering properties later in this guide.
