Hi, trying to get a particle spary for my perfume bottle but i cant get the effect to look right, at the moment it looks like it bursts from the bottome instead of 'spraying' out of the nozzle

any help would be great thanks in advance:confused: :confused: :confused:

That's a really dense mesh for such a simple model. Try to be more ecconomically with Polys. Also you should create a Content Directory and name files correctly, especially when sharing.

Was there a scene file??

First of all make the emitter smaller, no bigger than the hole which you would imagine the spray exiting from, and then move it into place by the front of the nozzle.

Then instead of using Gravity to propel the particles use Velocity and Vector values (under the Motion tab). To make the particles spread out use Explosion (same tab).
