about the collisions, if they were small sparks like from an ember,
attaching physics to them wouldn't it seem quite taxing on the system?
Unless the explosions you were talking about also included flying debris,
otherwise it's kinda more efficient to just let the particles drift into the
walls and such.
Sry I couldn't contribute any more useful. =|
