Step 4

In the left hand side properties window, we need to change the following conditions' name values:

  1. Change the Properties Values

    • Rate: 30
    • Spray cone:160
    • Angle:90

  2. Initial Particles Properties

    • Speed:10
    • Size:5
    • X randomiser:120
    • Speed randomiser:10
    • Size randomiser:10

  3. Particles lifetime Properties

    • Acceleration:1
    • Gravity:10
    • Angle randomiser:100
    • Speed randomiser:10
    • Opacity randomiser:5
    • Timeout:9
