Particle flow speed space follow maintaining up-vector?
show user profile  xandos
Hi guys, do any of you know how to have particles rotation follow their direction but restrict their axes?

For example.... a flock of birds - an individual bird obviously wouldn't fly upside down....

Scripting perhaps if no better solutions? I've had a fair look around and haven't come up with anything yet.

And actually, since I'm here - any way to set an absolute particle speed limit? I tried some script from somewhere which worked along the lines of if speed > x set speed to x... But I somehow failed in it's implementation haha. Any more idiot proof ways?

Thanks for reading!
