Drawing maya particles as something like a + or *

Is it possible to program something to draw maya particles as a + or * ? 3ds max does this (and more, as standard: http://docs.autodesk.com/3DSMAX/16/...mber=d30e390553 )

I'd love to be able to add is functionality to maya particles. Points and spheres just don't cut it sometimes

Using a sprite of a + or x or o or * etc isn't really what I'm after by the way

Thanks for any advice

with mel:


//
string $nParticle = createNode( "nParticle" );
addAttr( "-is", true, "-dt", "string", "-ln", "attributeName", $nParticle );
addAttr( "-ln", "customAttribute",  "-dt", "string",  $nParticle );
setAttr( "-e", "-keyable", true, ($nParticle+".customAttribute") );
setAttr( "-type", "string", ($nParticle+".customAttribute"), "+" );
setAttr( ($nParticle+".particleRenderType"), 2 );
setAttr( "-type", "string", ($nParticle+".attributeName"), "customAttribute" );

emit(	"-object",		$nParticle,
		"-position",	0, 0, 0 );



Or do it inside the attribute editor.
