    I really like this firepack--it's perfect for a current project--but I'm having a problem: I'm using the linear fire effect for tree branches on fire, but the shader it uses (FX/Flare) shows through other trees (doesn't respect layering of objects in front of it), so it looks bad. I tried changing the shader to the one that Unity's stock fire prefabs use (Particles/Alpha Blended), which don't have that problem--but that breaks the whole effect. Could you possibly tweak it somehow to fix that problem?

    thanks!

    Did you try the additive shader?

    Additive did the trick, thanks 3dDude (I bought your firepack too--very nice!)

    Say, while I'm on the topic, what I'd also really like to see in the Asset Store is a large-scale fire. I'm going to have to burn down Baltimore for a game soon (yes, an educational game!) -- the fire needs to be visible a mile away, and none of the firepacks I've seen scale up to be visible at that distance. Anyone want to give that a try?

    No problem! Thanks!


    Very large effects are tuff..

    You ether have loads and loads of particles, Or you have big particles...

    I would try scaling the fires very large and modifying the Ellipsoid range a bit. Most of the time with very massive fires all you see is smoke.

    So I would place a few fairly large fires coming from buildings or windows.

    I am not sure if you updated to the latest version with the new oil fire smoke or not...
    Try to get this look:


    If you put a few fires like that on windows and roofs you could get a fairly nice result without many particles
