Particle System Physics

Hi, I was wondering if it is possible to have particles be affected by gravity & physics, to for example make them bounce on the ground?

Hi @Ivolutio and welcome,

The current particles emitter doesn’t support gravity or physics, and from what I understand this isn’t something that can be added easily.

If you are looking in using a smaller number of particles, so performance won’t suffer, you may be able to implement it using normal entities and rigidbodies. Simulating the particles using forces.

You could also implement a point cloud based particles. In the next release of the engine there is a new example showing how to easily render cuarom 100k particles - they also bounce inside the sphere volume. Not quite the generic particles affected by physics, but a good starting point if you want to develop some effects like this yourself.
