Description

I would like to request the addition of a field to particle generators that stops the sprite rendering during the state or maybe even permanently past that point.

  • Subject changed from Option for particle gen to disable sprite rendering to Option for particle generator to hide sprite
  • Priority changed from Normal to Low

Is the objective to effectively completely replace a sprite with particles? If so, would this only affect sprites or should it be applicable to any mobjs, even if they are shown as 3D models?

Note that in the past mod authors have used a "null model" definition for this purpose.

#3 Updated by vermil about 7 years ago

The issue with using a blank model definition, is that it requires the user to have turned models on.

I'm also imagining that this generator flag will turn it ‘self on/off depending on whether the user has generators turned on/off.
