Hello

I wanted to make it a surprise in next RFT, but I just cant wait :)

Yes this is a particle engine used to display spell effects!
Quite easily I can now do fires, water sprays, exlposions, ... !

oh and I forgot to mention... egos appear to be lost using the stacking methods now used. that is a giant potion will be merged with the regular potions (or fireproof scrolls or acidproof potions, etc.)

Ego particles ??? ;)
But yes I know that's on my to fix list.
Although they are not really lost, just not shown.
There is no stacking as in the old engines, rather you see the first object of a list of many adn it tells you how many there is. Much more sane!

MMmmmmm.... DELICIOUS!

Though if you're going to do particle explosions, you might want to make it a bit more realistic to the type of enemy, i.e. orcs - green, humans - red, undead - gray, etc.

No it's easy :)

But the explosions are for spells, not monsters exploding :)

So what happens when a Dragon breaths on you, or a spell caster casts a spell at you? 8)

Sweet. Tome4! I had saw that it was started a few weeks ago but I didn't feel like posting in the t4 section until I saw this, the particles look awesome!
