|I do think its a good idea though - every time you make a change to the particle system it recalculates, and this can be a pain.
|Can we see all this Deflector and Gravity Experimental Tests in one of the next Blender Official Versions maybe 2.33 or 2.34 or later...?|
Apollux, thanks for the support! It's appreciated!
Thanks to all for the comments.... on the progress indicator thing, I've been playing with it a bit. It's similar to what Apollux suggested, but it just outputs the number of particles currently calculated. Not every particle, but 100 times during the total calculation, so it doesn't slow down calculations with large numbers of particles.
Work has been far too stressful lately, so I haven't had much chance to work on this, hopefully I'll have a bit more progress this weekend....
