    Hello,
    I've created some "acidic" magic effects, and I'd like to know what do you think about. I plan making at least 8-10 similar effects, not only acid ofc. I know there are quite a few effect packs, but I also want to learn&practice a bit of effect making and particle systems.

    Demo (web based):
    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/6602349/WebPlayer.html
    Click on the ground to launch the effect, press space to switch to the different one. There are 2 effects right now, the Acid Shower and the Acid Explosion.

    Images (it is far better in motion, images are a bit lacking)

    I'd like to know what do you think. It is too bad quality for selling, or acceptable?

    cheers

    Like most anything, it could use work, but I think it's definitely good enough to be sellable. My main issue is with the lack of gravitational acceleration on the falling acid.

    Give it a little bit of an upward motion. In fact, give it a small nudge force that can send it splattering in one direction selectable by the user. Give it some preset colours that the user can pick and choose to represent acid, blood, feces, "magic essence." The splats on the floor should last just a smidge longer. The spats on the floor should conform to the geometry, not lay on a flat plane. Give some of the particles a little acceleration or as Jessy said, gravitational acceleration. Give me some colour variation in the green. It is almost there. Definitely worth a few bucks on the asset store.

    It just needs some love and jankifying and you are definitely the programmer for the job.
