comment Should my platformer have collectibles?
Agreed. I should actually post this as a forum thread as I see very little discussion regarding this particular question on the internet.

It's not really the same. This was very specifically if collecting objects which gave no instant benefit. But hey I wont argue the closing.

comment How do I properly use particle simulation in Unity?
Your right in that you cant keep passing a bigger number to Simulate.

Calling partEmitter.Simulate(10); made the problem worse, but it also just spawned a group of particles. Shot for your help though, learnt something.

I'll give this a shot when I can. But almost every other example out there, runs it in a for loop. But yours does make more sense.

comment Why released games usually contain their scripts sources?
+1 good question. The same with Battlefield 2, had a few dozen python scripts. It's strange as why just not compile the python script? Leaving the source closed.

comment Why no night sky with realistic star constellations?
+1 and making this a favourite, as even I didn't realize this. I suppose though, what the stars look like on a skymap is probably an after thought when it comes to game development.

@Tetrad Are you talking about my step in the for loop(incrementing of i)? I've just tested that. A smaller amount makes the particles bigger and vice-versa. If you speaking of the step setting in Time settings, I haven't changed anything there.

comment Should I be using blender game engine as my first engine?
Agreed. Blender is really nice for a quick setup. You also can do almost everything inside blender. As opposed to using a few different programs and then putting them all together in another program. I'd suggest going through some tutorials.
