Looked at your source code, and realized you only have to call setBackground(img) (in the render() method) once. Once you've set the image, you can edit it and it will show up on the Actor/World using that image. Doesn't change performance much, but just wanted to point that out.


This is awesome! I made a Dracula face with stone then put a bunch of red dust in it, rubbed a bit of the mouth out, there perfect. Most fun I have ever had with dust. If only sand was like this in minecraft.


That would be an interesting mod...


Are the particles individual actors, or part of the background?!?!??!?


they are part of the background
