This pack contains a collection of effects designed to allow you to create any kind of electrical effect.
The turnkey examples include lasers, projectiles, explosions, electric arcs interacting with the environment, storms, and effects bouncing from target to target. However, you will be able to create your own VFX using the numerous emitters offered. If you are new to Niagara: All blueprints are included (+Tutorials).
BONUS : A map with all effects reworked to be optimized for VR (Currently, you will need to disable Instanced Stereo).
Works on mobiles : Use VR effects for better performance.
