No, I don't want the annoying little junk raining on me everywhere but they have a clever way to make the object not show in area search... Just wondered how I could work around that.

How can I reduce the number of particles close to me? I am on Fs.

 

Thank you

Quick Preferences has max particle option on it.

Or you can just shut off all particles by typing CTRL+SHIFT+ALT+ = .  It works wonders when you find yourself in a crowd of fun-loving particle spammers. When you think you are safe again, type the same combination to allow sane particles.

You could reduce the maximum number of particles shown. The closest particles will be given priority. (As in, only the particle sources closest to you can show particles.)

If you just want to get rid of the annoying particles, you have to find the source.

You can also right click a particle itself and choose Block Particle Owner and your block list should open showing you who you just blocked.

Does not always work.
I have tried that in some places and the selection goes right through. I end up blocking something behind the particle.

You could maybe use Beacons to find the particle emitting object.

Enabling "view transparent objects" is helpful in locating things, CTRL+ALT+T.

Looking at the pattern of the particles can often help visualize the point they are coming from. This will be where the emitter object is.
