Particle help...

I recently had a post on how to make a glowing orb. The feedback was very helpful, and I came up with this.

As you can see, I added some particles to it, but I want the particles to be…longer…to look more like strings…I wish I could explain it in better detail…

Any help will be appreciated.

hope this helps

Sorry, but this wasn’t what I was looking for.

I’m trying for something like this. Excuse the poor drawing…

look for something called “vect” in the particles tab thingy. I’ll post an example eventually, but I’m kinda busy now.
