    For many months now ive come across a time where i need a lightning electricity particle effect for my many projects. Ive spent some time searching for a package or an asset, and even attempted making my own.
    Im aware there is the unity demo ..
    http://unity3d.com/support/resources/example-projects/procedural-examples

    But i need something different, more realistic but with that fantasy feel to it. something along the lines of this.



    iv seen no success with anyone at making something similar.

    Wow... no lightning in the asset store?

    Ouch.

    Maybe I will have to hire someone to make this for me...or perhaps I'll attempt to do it myself. Oi!

    Look in the support/resources/example projects/procedural examples and the unity website. There is a lightning/plasma effect in there. You can tweak etc.

    ElectroShock might be able to get close.

    It's a little bit different system than what your screenie shows but might be able to pull off something similar. I'll play around with some textures to see if I can get close. I'm not quite ready to release the weapon example though. That might be another week or so...

    @Benopaluz - I took a look and textures aren't enough to get you there through ES yet. Not very easy anyway. I'll let you know when I have the weapons version ready.
