    Thanks.

    Just to clarify, if your Detonator works fine in the editor but shows nothing when you Build, move the detonator folder to your resources folder.

    Can you help me? After importing the asset, its structured Detonator Explosion Framework/Resources/Detonator/Textures what do you mean by moving the detonator folder to the resources folder if its already there? FYI explosions render in editor but not in standalone build. The development console tells me that there are problems in the System/Detonator.cs file. Specifically lines 94, 188, 319.
    94: FillDefaultMaterials();
    188: if (!smokeAMaterial) smokeAMaterial = DefaultSmokeAMaterial();
    319: defaultSmokeAMaterial = new Material(Shader.Find("Particles/Alpha Blended"));
    It appears to be giving me a null reference exception. I'm pretty new to coding and unity, any help?

    NVM After some tinkering with the files, I finally got it to work by moving all the files in Detonator Explosion Framework to Detonator Explosion Framework/Resources/Detonator

    I recently upgraded from Unity 4 to 5.3.5 and I'm getting this error

    If you want to use a non-convex mesh either make the Rigidbody kinematic or remove the Rigidbody component. Scene hierarchy path "Quadrant2/Player-8954/ShipExplosion(Clone)/Detonator-Insanity/Heatwave", Mesh asset path "Library/unity default resources" Mesh name "Plane"Non-convex MeshCollider with non-kinematic Rigidbody is no longer supported in Unity 5.

    I have a ship with a rigid body and mesh collider. When the ship is destroyed is spawns a Detonator-Insanity explosion. As you can see this generated an error. I'm not sure if its due to the rigidbody+mesh collider of the parent object or something with the detonator. Any suggestions or guidance are appreciated.

    Thanks

    Detonator no longer works on Unity 2018 because of the abandoned (old) legacy particle system.
    Do you plan to renew this package at all ?
    Do you guys know about any alternative on the Asset Store that uses the new Shuriken ?

    Hi, Detonator author here. I looked at it a few months ago and it would not be a terribly bad update. Basically there is one component that provides an interface to the particle systems. It would need to get refactored to talk to Shuriken instead of Legacy.

    The thing that stopped me from putting the time in is that I just wasn't sure anyone was still using it. If more people are interested in a Detonator 2018 update, speak up!

    Hi, Yes definitely update it please. I use it in all my games and the list of warnings and depreciations is getting longer and longer and the thought of having to replace it kind of stops me updating my games to 2018!

    Hi Ben,

    Definitely interested in an updated version of this asset. I am still using earlier versions of Unity just to make use of it. The community would definitely appreciate it! :)

    Unity 2019.1.0f1 shows:

    Assets/Detonator Explosion Framework/System/DetonatorBurstEmitter.cs(17,13): error CS0246: The type or namespace name `ParticleEmitter' could not be found. Are you missing an assembly reference?

    I guess these scrips need to be updated using the Unity particle conversion tool, anyone up for it? If not I can try..

    Here is my attempt at converting the Detonator Insanity Explosion to the 'new' Unity Particle System...

    Hopefully from this and the other detonator assets you can recreate the explosions you need for your games.

    Nice one! I wouldn't mind seeing a sample / screenshots to check out the difference.

    Heya folks! I've been working with benthroop at Frame Interactive to get Detonator updated! Now Detonator supports Unity versions 2017.x and up (minimum 2017.1). The Unity Asset Store is updated to include this version (2.0.0).

    Here is also a link to the GitHub project: https://github.com/benthroop/Detonator

    The GitHub will be used for any hotfixes or features that we'll need, and the asset store build will be updated on periodic occasions to keep up with the repo.
