Particle Effect on Blocks

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to attach a particle effect on a block. Im creating a flare and using a block as a pipe that you set down and wanted to attach the air drop smoking effect on it when place down. Is it possible to do?

 

Cheers,

On a custom block made in Unity? Yes. On a vanilla block? Not that I am aware of without code.

Unless I misunderstand the question it is not hard at all - look at the particle effect attached to a campfire or forge. Just copy that into your copy of the vanilla block, adjust the offset and you should be good.

That effect get activated only when you start the forge or campfire, the flare in question don't get activated, so the effect don't apply.

The campfire is not a basic block, like those that make up terrain or building blocks. Its a "tile entity", which has meta data and code behind it. Its these things that allow particle effects on it. To convert a block into something that can do more you need to add code to give it the new ability.
