Use pufts to convey info about gas density

Recommended Posts

High-pressure gas looks different than low-pressure gas. Which is good, because in general things should look like what they are. Readability and all.

Another good, and subtle, way to make low gas pressure visible and easy to grasp intuitively would be to make pufts have a hard time maintaining altitude in low pressure. This might also create some interesting options for manipulating them.

Alt suggestion: Have them scrunch up a bit in very high pressure, and expand a little bit in very low pressure. That's a reasonable way to manage the buoyancy and would be another strong visual signal about gas density.
