Particle Candy Collision Question

Can collisions be detected on the individual particles? i am thinking of buying Particle Candy to use as a 'Bullets' kind of system...or grenade shrapnal, but just need to know if u can use collision detection on each particle made from the emitter.

Particle Candy is system code, you can do anything with it that blitz supports...

you would have to replace or modify quite some code because Particle Candy has no own collision and as it is single surface the particles itselfs are unable to a real collision too.

so you would need to add an alpha 0 sphere at the particles position for collision detection or something else ( or math collision over distance calculations )

It doesn't have collision detection, thought you can set particles to bounce when they hit the ground, but that is done simply by suppling a floating point value to indicate the height of the ground plane.

It's all Blitz code though, so you could do anything you wanted with it with a little effort.
