PostPosted: Tue Jul 01, 2003 2:55 pm   Post subject: Homer's Particle Engine

I have no idea how a real particle engine works... but i made this one some how....
the controls are only + and - to make the angle bigger and smaller...
but i'd be happy if some1 told me how a real particle engine works...

particle engine is what creates particles Laughing

well it has couple of properties like source, which can be a point in space or an object.

It then creates particles, which are really objects with properties like

initial location (source)
velocity
lifespan
spin(if applicable)
particle type (geometrics of particle)

Thats all I can think of right now, if you want, I can look up all the properties from 3DSMAX.

Also things like gravity bind and other forces(wind) would go here...

Particle engines are used to create scenes of when there's a lot of similar obects. Like rain or snow... sand...

If engine is complex enough, it can even handle organic objects like ants or even humans.

some of the higher-level particle engines have their own scripting languges which can be used to write the rules for the system

hmmm... that's a lotta things to implement in a particle engine...i dont think turing's fast enough the one i made has only 500 particles and it's that slow... i might make one in c++ later...

here's another version of my engine... it has gravity support...
controls are "+" "-" "*" "/" "," "."
and mouse...

why are the particles jiggling?

also why r u doing in this turing?
**hint** opengl **hint**

lol their jiggling cuz i made them jiggle... u can use the keyboard to make the jiggling stop... and i haven't used opengl cuz i'm still not sure how a real particle system really works... so i'm just waiting for you to b done with yer OpenGL Particle system so i'd know what a particle engine really is...
btw here's my code... as u can see the structure looks nothing like a real particle system

wow, Homer, your code is about umpteen bazillion times as organized as mine. I feel almost ashamed.

please tell me you were sarcastic about that.

Mine usually looks something like this:

for ghjf:1..70573
if sqrt(q/6353)+ghjf mod 9>51/2 then
Bull.Shit(py(1,17),&&&,#*&#@^$*$)
end if
end for


throw in about 7000 random brackets and it'll look like my usual style

then that's just sloppy programming and nothing to be proud of eggplant

he isn't proud of it, lol, or i hope not

How do you see the source code for Homer's program, it's stand alone!

obviously he dusn't want u to steal it...otherwise we'd all post codes instead of those other exe files

he posted the code (look in the middle somewhere)
