Does anyone have any tips, tricks or links about making good looking bullets?
I want my bullets to feel powerful and destructive.
Mostly I need help in giving them a good trail effect.
Currently I have given them some decent-ish smoke trails using the particle system but this is crappy for a number of reasons, mostly because I still haven't found a way to get particles to correctly inherit an angle, and so when the bullets are fired at an angle the trails do not look right. (Also, when the bullet is destroyed, all the particles created by it vanish instantly, which looks awful)
So... Um... Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
How have you guys done your bullet effects?
