{SOLVED} Changing Particle Size

Looking to make some BIG fire. A LOT bigger than the given fire particles. I don't have much knowledge of the particle editor, so if anyone could help me out?

I don't even know if it's possible and how I might go about doing it. I want to at least quintuple the size of one of the fire particles, maybe even bigger if it doesn't kill the level with lag.

Thanks. Big Grin

RE: Changing Particle Size

Which particle? Tell me one, I'll give it a try.
For size, go to rendering tab.

The particle is fire_stove_small.

Doesn't seem to be working very well for me...

ps_fire_streets_window.ps?

I just played around with that particle for a moment and as Amn said, you can do it from the render tab. I couldn't get it to go directly upward, but there are plenty of other fire particles you can use.

RE: Changing Particle Size

Thanks a lot guys. Smile I ended up using the particle Romulator suggested, as well as the size he had in the screen shot. It's working well for me.

For some reason, whenever I manipulated the original fire particle, it didn't get very much bigger, and when I put in big values for the render size, I got a really cool looking atom effects, however they wouldn't have been put to good use for what I had in mind for actual fire, haha.

Thanks! As always for the help! Big Grin
