Description

The current particle effects system has some severe bottlenecks (it does not utilize the GPU (shaders, VBOs), instead drawing all particles in immediate mode) and some additional flexibility would be good for animating individual particles.

Also, sorting the particles is done pretty inefficiently: particles could for instance be divided into smaller buckets based on map subdivision, and faraway buckets could be sorted less accurately, if sorted/drawn at all.
