that's pretty much what it was
i made that disruption ani well before
A) i knew what i was doing in psp5
B) the SCP even came out, let alone before this super cool particle engine was made.
heck, it isn't even a partical ani
what it was ment for was as the impact ani for a disrupter weapon. the idea was to have lightning bolts play over a ship upon impact. this was a very old and rubbishy test ani flipside had to see how lightning might look ingame upon impact.
however since the ship lightning thing was implimented, and since flip made a MUCH better impact ani, it's outlived it's usefulness
i think what's needed is a simple particle ani that has a 1/a couple of particals on it that start out in a uniform bright white and quickly fade to black. (at slightly different rates if using multiple particals).
this one sorta went out from the middle in blue lines, got much bigger and moved around before fading to black where it was. thus you see the really weirdly shaped trails
