Connect Closest Particles

Hey guys, there's a way to connect one particle to another one, creating a string of particles between it? If it's possible I would like to connect one particle to it's closest one.

There's this awesome tutorial by Khye Kading that he connects a point helper to another one. Maybe we could do something like this?

Well it doesn't actually connect the point helpers, it just uses it as a reference object and its point in world space to use as end points.

If you want to simply connect particles you can use massFX Glue. That is the easiest way.

Admittedly my the the Spawn Sub-op have never done anything but delete particles. That is a great example Khye There is some strange pluralism going on, what is causing that?

How might you go about keeping its partner particle for life?
EDIT: nevermind, Input New/New In Event for the Pair ID
