Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Reduce particle effect quality to improve preformance

im making a game for mobile and it's working fine but the particle effects are causing low fps. i checked the complexity scale and the particle effects are showing red and white.

how do i lower them so that they don't effect performance?

here is a lot of good information: https://realtimevfx.com/t/mobile-games-vfx/2567

some tips of my own: try to keep materials simple, use masked where possible, unlit, try to keep math in custom uv's, and use LOD's where possible.
