Cool! that gives me an idea for something in my next level. MM should have made a fireworks launcher object as a gadget in your tools bag that would be nice.

I'm not sure at the moment but I might be able to figure it out.

one thing i saw is it deffinately looks like they are little lights inside of it....just a guess but i'm guessing its an emitted object that explodes when it gets to w/e height and emits other lights?

its simple imo... you just emit a object which emits another object which emits another etc etc etc... get the picture? the timing could be done with a timing logic box type thing

Ya I was thinking timing could be tricky...for the explosion you could just have a sound play..might not be too tricky..and you have the original thing's life span vanish by the time the new ones emit

I had some fireworks in one of my levels. Yeah it's just emmiters and fairy lights set to foggy.

I made a biggish light with lots of small emitters on it that emit smaller lights. Capture that object then have that itself come out of another emiiter to launch the firework. For the sound I put a magnetic key switch on the firework and put a magnetic key on a piece of dark matter high above the firework. So when the firework reaches a certain height it triggers an explosion sound.

Pretty straight forward but the timing is tricky and it can be a hassle having to capture so many objects to use them in emmiters.

It might be useful to know lights can't be exploded. So if you have a block of cardboard with five lights set around it in a star, with a bomb in the middle, when the bomb explodes, you get the sound AND the flying lights.
