Added one more option


random_colours =1, then every pixel in the meteor is a different color
random_colours=2, random color for the meteor, but the hue is kept the same


any other value the the meteor will start with your start_color and finish with your end_color.


here is random_colours=2

I have a ping to david asking what he thinks is the best way for me to do this, going on 3 days, no answer.


I really dont want to have to make an xml, so complicated


It was suggested that maybe there is a way to get Nutcracker data into the clipboard. I understand that you can cut and paste in LSP.


If someone would copy a small section of data and if we could see the contents of the clipboard maybe we could go that way.

That's assuming LSP uses the Windows clipboard of course. Some applications do, but some use their own private scratchpad instead.

Bug fixes: Meteor type 3 was not working. Sparkles was not working. Both are now fixed.
Some examples:


meteor type 1, every pixel is random . Note: your start and end colors are ignored for this effect.

Meteor type 2: each meteor will keep the same color throughout its life. Here we have 0% for sparkles

Here is the same meteor type 2 but sparkles has been set to 33%

Here is meteor type 3, as we go through the frame sequence a meteor will be shifted between your start and end color. any given meteor will keep its hue.
sparkles set at 33% so you can compare with the above image.

and finally, what if you want a meteor shower with just white.
Select meteor type 2 or 3 and set start and end color = #FFFFFF.
