Ring particle emitter?

So... Everything's looking fine and dandy so far. Have a look at my sketch of a gaseous star made available due to the latest commits! ;)
A really useful update! Still testing though... Any thoughts on making such alignment for the mesh FromVertex operator?

I wish Sparkle could support the aligned modes... It was not originally supported, but there is still hope... [-o<

It seems to be a bug in chunks, with an incorrect scale (0) for meshes
try to change the line 1141 in fxpartilces.cpp
to replace : Source->Func(PInfo[i],Time,Para.LookAhead*i);
by : Source->Func(PInfo[i],Time+Para.LookAhead*i,Para.LookAhead*i);

and test this

Yeeeeeeeeeeeey! Works! There is only one bug I can see this far: It seems that sparkle doesn't pick up direction when Ballistic is in clamp mode.

Good job, mate. Keep it up! :)

ikam
OK. Clamp mode is rarely used... so no big deal if you don't see a solution right now... What do you think of making normal alignment work with FromVertex? (mesh)?

Thanks guys!
Main idea was completely remake all fr-08 scene with procedural or photoshopped textures. But now I prefer more scene changes. I have plan on each scene what to add on it =)
For example - above screenshots with... call it "reactor" now have barrels on map and 3D rocks near crater.
Because demo limit on CC14 is 64mb.
64mb-15mb sound data -3 mb wz player data = 46mb free space too fill with texture and geometry.

Here is example of first scene sketch uses 3d texture - displace on flat high poly cube. Looks nice for me. But now I have another Idea, what to do in first scene =) ech... don't know now, would it better or not =)

Yo. Looks sexy! :) You'd better open a new thread in snippets or demos section. No offense, man... but I've got this red plate flashing: Warning: Off-topic detected! ;)

Will you please commit this as well:

to replace : Source->Func(PInfo[i],Time,Para.LookAhead*i);

Thank you.
