What's new in PPx 2.2?

After many testing, bug fixing and eventually giving up on the project because of massive lag issues it had, I've returned and I've reactivated this project. I have the source files back on my HDD again after my DD failure and I'll rebuild it for one last time, taking my time testing it and not adding anything else before the previous contents were thoroughly tested. This project will also feature several addons. Refer to the FAQ for more information.

ETA and Information:

The ETA or ETR of this mod is end 2013. I want to dedicate most of my time to it. I'm a lone wulf though, so don't expect daily updates. My primary focus in the early stages of development are performance and trying to keep that 60FPS mark at any given time. If you have any feedback or just want to offer your help, don't hesitate to PM me.

Hey guys, LoNer here. I've recently (2 weeks ago) announced the return of this mod and reactivation of it. In these 2 weeks I've accomplished close to none because of my grades. It's not like I'm failing school or anything, but I can do better. Let's keep it on that :) I did think of a new 'system' where other modders and map creators can easily use my assets created for either personal or public use (with credit ofcourse) I've created a file structure as seen in the below image

As you can see, I've created 1 "base" folder containing all sub folders (up to date) which I've changed / included. I will create my own particles from scratch and this will be my main working folder. I will try and keep it tidy. It will have a likewise structure to the vanilla particle setup, just slightly more polished / detailed:

My main goal has been achieved, and that is creating that what this mod stands for: Beautiful particle effects on the artefacts. I've created 42 new particles from scratch, which means that each artefact (yes, 42 artefacts will be featured in PPx) will have it's own unique particle effect, skin, mesh, config, text the whole thing. They will all stand out from each other. I've taking many of your guy's request into mind with this :) I hope to showcase a video of the various effects, soon.

This has been the small update. Please leave feedback, It's what makes a mod great, eh? :)

You are kinda messing up the mod...
I came here looking for Particle Paradise, a mod that touches graphics only. Not some huge conglomeration that messes with NPC's, stats, and places 'stuff' about, and even fiddles with trade values.

You started with such a great idea: to make a VISUAL modification.
But then got so carried away, trying to alter every little 'other' thing that bugged you about the game.
You've taken on too much, 'tis the folly of many new modders :(

I like how I have my balanced now with AI, trade, NPC placement, and weapon damage ect... do you think you could go back in the direction of your original goal and post a 'visual only' version of this mod? I dont feel like ripping apart your mod to get the VISUAL changes only, and leaving out the countless 'other changes' this mod makes >.<"

Hey bud, well i finally got around to upgrading my GPU,mostly for the purpose of playing this mod,but i get a BSOD within 5-10 minutes of playing. HD 7950 OC'd edition,so more than enough power to run this game. my drivers are up to date. never used to crash till recently. computer is more than capable of running this mod. not exactly sure what is causing the BSOD.

Thats what makes you get the BSODS, my friend has the same problem. Try taking it out and/or disable the card. It works perfectly without, he tested it. :( idk whats wrong with the new Soundblasters but they seem to cause problems like yours with my modified sounds and soundsphere's / occluders.

Thats strange that a sound card would cause problems,its usually video card/driver related. i'll get back to you when i test it out,and see if it BSOD's again.

Hi, I also had this problem, I too have removed my card luckily I have a good motherboard so my onboard is ok. To the point then, I have seen on the technobacon Stalkersoup page somewhere a fix called: CreativeLabs BSOD_fix. Hope this helps :)
