Editing the Code Parameters
-Line 3: float AnmTime: Determines the animation speed of the bodyline effect.
-Line 14: string ResourceName: Determines which image to reference for the bodyline effect. When using a custom texture, ensure that the lines are drawn with a white-to-black gradient overlay on a transparent background. The effect will 'draw' the lines moving from white to black.
-Line 18: string ResourceName: Determines which image to reference for the color of the bodyline effect. When using a custom texture, ensure that the image gradients from left to right.
-This effect was inspired by the "Zone of the Enders" game franchise.
-If using ObjectLuminous, you can go to MMEffect -> Effect Mapping -> OL_EmitterRT and apply 'OL_BodyLine_v2.fx' to your model to allow the effect to glow.
