In future we will use this particle system to replace almost every 2D sprite used for FX. There will be particle based fire, explosions, smoke, water, sparks, teleport effects etc.
Since large number of particles can overkill older (and I mean really, really old) CPUs, there will be three options, allowing the player to set quality of these particle effects:
