Prokofy Neva Posted May 12, 2019 Share Posted May 12, 2019 Just so you know -- yes, I already hired a scripter. I always hire scripters. Multiple scripters. But not all of them know how to do a specific thing. Yes, I went to Jopsy's Particle Laboratory and that was helpful in reaffirming what I had gathered from what one scripter and from testing -- the higher the "burst" number, the slower it actually goes. But there is so much information about the history of the watch there that you can't find what time it is. Yes, I bought full prim scripts and examined them to see how they might work but couldn't figure it out. Yes, I read the SL wiki but couldn't find specifically what I need. Maybe it's too complex. So all I want to do is make a leaf waft. Yes, I know about "drop" -- I have that. Yes, I know about the burst rate as I mentioned. But what one particle expert told me is that particles don't always change just because you change one number on one parameter -- sometimes multiple changes have to be made in sync, which is why I'm asking this question. PS I've also bought multiple emitter and particle scripts, most with no off switch. Honestly, there should be an AR category for not putting off switches on particles. It's like some scripters or copiers of the classic Omega particle script want to stay in the eternal trance rave of 2008. But the rest of us want to be able to turn them off. And the "off" switch isn't something you can just copy and paste from one to put on another, they differ. I just want to make the leaf emerge SLOWLY, fall, and waft on the wind and be able to TURN IT OFF. That shouldn't be too hard, no? BTW I'm puzzled why certain dandelion emitters I've purchased have the image emerging so far away from the small prim -- obviously flowers can't be that way. If the particle emerges from the center of the prim, what's up? Maybe they didn't test it on an actual flower, but only the big box they made as a sample? But the images emerge quite far from the box, too., Yes, I realize that because of some *thing* about SL, the particles don't come from where they should, and you have to make an invisible prim to link to another prim, like the Moles' incense. But what if that still doesn't work? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
