Before posting your Resource, please make sure you can answer YES to any of the following questions:
  • Is the resource ENTIRELY my own work?
  • If no to the previous one, do I have permission from the original author?
  • If no to the previous one, did I put a reasonable amount of work into the resource myself, such that the changes are noticeably different from the source that I could take credit for them?
If you answered no to all three, maybe you should consider taking your stuff somewhere other than the Resources forum.

Please don't put requests here! They have their own forum --> here. Thank you!

NQParticle - Quake 1-style particles (modder's resource)

Written by Nash Muhandes

An attempt to replicate the unique scaling properties of Quake's particles.

In Quake, the size of the particles scale up with distance. The farther a particle is, the larger in size they'd become. I did not refer to Quake's source code - this was a completely off-the-cuff approximation, based entirely on observation.

Obviously not accurate to Quake, and I didn't set it out be.


This is meant as a modder's resource. Do not expect this mod to work flawlessly when combined with other gameplay mods. The expected use case would be for a mod author to take the code provided here and manually integrate it into their mods.
