First of all, I'm really excited about the Unity platform and the great community and I hope to learn some really wonderful things in the coming weeks. I would like to create a particle effect to simulate an electric charge. Imagine firing a laser beam with a lighting bolt trail. This is what I'm trying to accomplish. It would be from a fixed position to the center of an object in space. I would alter the color the particles in space based on the target.
Not really sure what I need and where to begin exactly. I would appreciate all responses to help in this regard. Thanks for everyone's patience.
