A particle is an animation of moving textures to simulate fuzzy effects. The new particle system in San Andreas is slightly different from GTA 3 and Vice City. Almost all particle effects are stored in the .\models\effects.fxp file. You can also attach particle systems to your models using the 3d Studio Max script by DexX, that works also for 2dfx GTAForums topic.

Mission Script

You can use the following opcodes to do stuff to your particles.
