  1. Disabling Particles


In the event that you want to disable a particle, it is recommended to do so from the particle file itself as opposed to simply making the particle texture transparent in particles.png. Additionally, disabling a particle might offer a slight performance boost compared to making it transparent, as transparent particles are still emitted (but not visible).

The basic idea of disabling a particle from emitting is as follows:
