    Like I said, it's nearly impossible to create "general use" map effects so I just decided to release the most versatile out of them and personally create any others that people ask for.

    Basically, making map effects is not the same as making a weapon effect or a payload explosion. Lesson learned.

    These look really snazzy. I just wish I had a lava map to use them in.

    May I edit a few of these for use? Just colo(u)r wise mostly.

    Let me know, these look absolutely amazing and I wouldn't want to tarnish them if you'd rather I didn't.

    Things like color editing are fine! Adjustments to make it fit better are always perfectly fine.

    Just don't go saying you made the effect though.

    Is there some way to see the list of particle names?

    Right click on Team Fortress 2 in your steam library, click Properties.
    Now click on "set launch options" and add -tools
    Now launch tf2 and select Particle Editor from the tools menu.
    Now Click file -> open and open a .pcf file
    There's a list of all names now.

    Thanks.

    On a side note, anyone else think this sounds like inconvenient way to things?

    OK I try opening the particle editor, and as soon as I click 'Open' it crashes. Any suggestions?

    You could also open the pcf in vide and get the names from there
