    That's right, Motherfucking EXPLOSIONS. A fancy pantsy new particle effect to replace the ever so drab default explosion.

    Yea it's not exactly a LUA thing per-se, but it doesn't really fit in any other section. Besides, there's a bit of LUA that I borrowed from this guy (who in turn borrowed it from this guy) To make the explosion show up.

    This is the first in what I hope to be a series of particle effects, possibly culminating into a big old fancy package with many different effects for people to choose from.

    Enjoy!

    If I learn how to mount particle effects to the particle systems controller, or if someone is willing to turn them into sweps that actually damage things, then sure.

    does this work in multiplayer? if not, can you make this work in multiplayer? every custom explosion addon I've ever had never worked in multiplayer, which makes me sad face D: your particle effect is fucking awesome 'though.

    Even the OP's computer lags when the explosions go off, if you watched his video...

    It only works / would work if the server doesn't have Scriptenforcer. Not sure if it's otherwise clientsided though.

    If you read the garrysmod.org, or youtube description, you would have seen that I said multiple times that it's fraps causing the lag.

    The explosions don't lag. There are probably more particles spawning when you catch something on fire then when you set one of these explosions off.

    Benchmark. I would love to have mp friendly mass explosion thing. Equally laggy or less laggy than the default one.

    Oh awesome. I'm guessing these are real particles defined in pcf files and not lua ones. I've been meaning to figure out the editor one of these days. You clearly mastered it.

    It seemed awfully easy to learn. It doesn't seem like it's so much knowing how to use it, as knowing what looks good. Kinda like how it's easy to teach someone how to use a pencil, but not as easy to teach them how to draw.

    Right I understand, but the interface is far from intuitive. Its definitely something you have to spend some time on before you can wield it correctly.


    Also, once the wiki goes back up I was going to write that lua code the right way and was going to add some functionality to spawn the explosion so it is parallel to surface normals that exceed a certain threshold so that it looks nice on walls and ceilings.

    HMm...For some reason, it doesn't work with grenades. Is this intentional?

    No. Grenades and Dynamite won't work with it for reasons unknown.

    Does anyone know if it'd be possible to attach a particle effect to the muzzleflash, similar to how this one is attached to the explosion?

    Grab this and play the maps in GMod? Other than that, I don't think there is a way, unless I'm mistaken and this effect can be hooked into HL2.

    Haven't looked at it yet.

    Yea, I think you would have to type up a new script if you wanted it to work in HL2.

    Considering that this runs from a lua folder that HL2 doesn't have...
