How to make custom particles
Fri, 03/20/2020 - 15:28

Hello, dear fellow modders, I was wondering, is there an easy way to make custom particles?

The standard vanilla particles are kinda not good because they do not spawn consistently and when you walk not too far away they stop spawning.

I am making a chimney mod (not because there isn't one) but I want to have it exactly my way. So in the meantime I was doing other

things like crafting and textures and upgrading the textures and that kind of stuff. Now I am more focusing on aesthetics.

Thanks for any responses,

Sincerely, Adam Sindelar

Hello there! I've had the same doubt. Currently, there's no way to do it as ''particles''.

But what you can do is make a non solid block with the model/texture of the particle. You make it unbreakable, and with the ''block added'' prodecure (of your chimney) you put it to spawn the ''particles block'' on top.

(Also make the block replaceable and with 0 resistance and hardness)

 

You can also check if the block above it's air, and if it is it spawn the particle.

Sorry, i know it's not a particle, but it's the closest thing i can think off.

You could also give it a custom animated model.

I can't thank you both enough! The idea of making a "particle block" is tremendous! Thank you!
