The game "Minecraft" has a cult following. I knew it wouldn't be long before I couldn't resist a try at an intro.

Nice pixel style!

I once tried to use the GRID property of the particle layer to generate 3D pixels:

Thanks Michiel! I'm inspired by your technique... wheels are turning:)

IntroChamp, 7 years ago

Michiel, is there a way to make the particles in your example "live" forever... without dying or being born... simply static?

IntroChamp, 7 years ago

Good idea:)

LostBoyz, 7 years ago

No, but maybe you can simulate this by setting the MAXIMUM AGE property to a very high value.

michiel, 7 years ago

And have you already experimented with the 3D BLOCKS mode of the particles layer? You can select this with the 1st dropdown below the textbox.

Hi Michiel,

Yes, I've experimented and it's a great option. I have used it in the past to great effect.

I'm officially casting my ballad for a "static" particle. Please, good sir :)

IntroChamp, 7 years ago

I think what you have to do is this:
-set the EMISSION property to 100000
-set the MAXIMUM AGE to 100000
-set the 3 sliders of the PARTICLE SIZE to the same value

This will effectively make the particles static.

That's a good theory and worth a try, but with the EMISSION property set so high it produces too many particles to be practical and I end up with a runtime error.

IntroChamp, 7 years ago

How about a new property:
1st slider sets the minimum number of particles
2nd slider the maximum number of particles

This could also be used to generate exactly 1 particle.

We will try to fix the runtime error. Probably a bad handled out of memory problem.

That would be so awesome!!!
