I’ve been doing some work on beefing up particles, I would like to use them for a bunch more stuff so some enhancements are on the cards.
All the info is really in the video, make sure you watch at 720p.
Performance is virtually the same as the standard particle. At high FPS (800+) the new particles tend to be 3%-5% slower, but are far less susceptible to frame rate drops, and over time end up running faster. BUT …. this level of performance probably won’t stand up by the time I have finished all the enhacements.
I was going to wait until I had finished completely to share this but its ended up taking a lot of time, so an WIP update video it is, so I can feel like I have actually accomplished something.
