particle explosions effect

Originally uploaded by jimonions on 15th March 2011 01:09 am

this is an explosion particle effect that will replace the regular one.
also added bc2 explosion sounds for added goodness like falling dirt.
one of the 100 things to do with this. stack barrels and explode them in slow motion with motion blur and dof enabled.
extract content into your garrysmod/garrysmod directory and merge.
If you really know what you're doing you can manually add the pcf file "explodey" to your particle's manifest instead of replacing it.
see youtube vid for more
thanks to for the idea

This download looks like an unpacked addon. You can either convert the files to an addon or merge the folders in the zip with the folders in your Garry's Mod folder.

Convert to Addon (Recommended)

You should end up with a directory structure similar to below:

  • steamapps
    • common
      • garrysmod
        • garrysmod
          • addons
            • particle explosions effect <-- Make this folder!
              • e.g.
              • lua
              • maps
              • materials
              • models
              • etc

Or, Merge Folders (Not recommended)

This option makes it difficult to remove the content should you no longer want it. Merge any folders from the zip with the equivalent folders in your Garry's Mod folder.

Don't know where the Garry's Mod folder is or how to extract zip files? See more useful installation tips.
