During this week I also tried to cover the gun special effects, that are present to the npc of the alternate dimension.
I also went through some versions with this effect, allowing each of them to be used if desired.
The first version was created to look like a stream of energy orbs disappearing in the enemy or air after a time. The second version I created has the purpose of looking like a continous energy beam while the button is pressed. The third version is made to look similar to the normal gun fire, but at the same time to resemble an explosion made of steam. The last version attempted resembles the first version in terms of trajectory, but is also has a smoke look, to resemble a controlled jet of laser.
I managed to do the different effects by using the various emmision forms, cone, hemisphere and sphere, more specifi, afterwards just modifying the other variables from the particle system.
