Hi Everyone.. got excited last minute, i think the challenge ends on Monday.
i decided to have some fun this weekend and see what i could do :D

not looking to win or anything.. just have fun :D


what i want to achieve is just the sim in Maya using 2011 since it has some cool fluids overhaul.

sooo. anyway...
i started on Friday like at 6 pm.
worked on a couple of solutions .. but didn't work.. so went to the online help and found out you can plug nparticles to emit fluids... this seemed to be the right approach.

as of right now i can get the fire but not the smoke, or viceversa.... i dunno why you can sahde fluids based on density and fuel. but not based on fuel and temperature... :(
thinking about solutions right now..

I'll post a wip in a bit
:D

ps.. i love all the entries... they look sweet!!!
