particles starttime
« on: October 18, 2007, 03:26:33 PM »

it would be nice to have a value for the time the particles should already be running when they are called.
for example:
i have a scene with three chimneys smoking dirt in the air.
everytime the player enters the scene the smoke starts polluting out of the chimneys. thats a little bit unreal ...
is there already a way to get these "prestarted" particles
or would it be possible to add a "prestarttime" attribute

best regards
stucki

If I understand your question correctly, the InitialTime parameter of Emitter.Start() does exactly what you need.

but it seems to be not working exactly.
in my smoke case there is some smoke there allready when i set the initial time to 8000, but the new generated particles look more dark and more dense .. so i can see a big difference of he allready polluted smoke and the new generated ....
