Dynamic Particle Culling
One of the engine improvements we've been working on is Dynamic Particle Culling, where we cull unnecessary instances of particles when there's a lot going on on-screen. The system aims to stay within the specified target frame rate, working in conjunction with Dynamic Resolution. We are experimentally enabling this on a few skills at the launch of Harvest, and will widen the coverage over time so that eventually this feature is enabled on everything appropriate for it. As you can see in this video, it makes a ridiculous difference for builds that spam skills fast.
Two Sets in the Collector's Cache Vote already have particles. Why?
You might have read the top thread on this sub already. The Luna set mentioned in that post which is being previewed in the Cache Voting with a far higher poly budget than what is permitted turns out also has particles in-game already.
Edit: And I double checked. These particles have been in the game since the day these sets got added. So you can't even say "maybe they saw the votes and started work.". They didn't. They already had it in.
Why? Has this set already been decided to be in the Cache? Then if that is the case, why even bother putting in the vote? Just add it in? Kinda fucking scummy of Valve to make people vote and then act like it was their choice to vote this in.
The same is for another set called Frostwind Slayer for Phantom Assasin.
Have both these sets been confirmed already? Then why are they part of the vote?
Need answers. The fuck is going on?

For people who are struggling with particles, I made a particle course with many example sentences.
I explained the usage of 10 case particles: が、の、を、に、へ、と、から、まで、より、で with example sentences. and all particles in the sentences are in red color.(So you can read the sentences easier).
Hope you can master them by learning this course!
Edit: I have other Courses too, if you have anything you want to learn But I haven't covered yet, just let me know, I will make them for you, and of course, for free.

Carl Sagan once said: "so an elementary particle, such as an electron, would, if penetrated, reveal itself to be an entire closed universe. Within it, are other much tinier particles, which are themselves universes at the next level" - Is this in line with what we know today about quantum physics?
The entire quote:
>There is an idea--strange, haunting, evocative-one of the most exquisite conjectures in science or religion... An infinite hierarchy of universes, so an elementary particle, such as an electron, would, if penetrated, reveal itself to be an entire closed universe. Within it, organized into the local equivalent of galaxies and smaller structures, are an immense number of other, much tinier elementary particles, which are themselves universes at the next level, and so on forever–an infinite downward regression, universes within universes, endlessly. And upward as well. Our familiar universe of galaxies and stars, planets, and people, would be a single elementary particle in the next universe up, the first step of another infinite regress.”
Sorry if I'm talking nonsense, I'm trying to understand these things. So, atoms are made up of combination of quarks (up, down, charm, strange, top, & bottoms), right? Quarks, on the other hand, are made up of strings. Accord

I think The Thrash Particle is MoBo’s best song
I think this is their best album/ep and, specifically, this is them at their best.
It didn’t dawn on me immediately why I was so drawn to this song. On the surface, this is not inherently a story I relate to on a personal level. But, where I think this song shines is in its ability to transport you into the emotions of Lukens’ mind.
The guitar work is heavy but still feels like them (something I love). The hook is catchy and breaks the 4th wall (something I would usually cringe at but it just makes so much sense here and feels genuine). The breakdown at the one minute mark is so god damn satisfying.
I don’t know man I love this song.
TIL that if the universe had one dimension of space and three dimensions of time instead of the other way around, the speed of light would be the LOWER limit of speed instead of the upper limit.

148 sets to vote, and a few of them will be on collector's cache set. Since all 148 are already in the game and the winners will get a little particle effects and stuff: Can we get the rest of the sets as rewards on Rilay's blessing instead of the same repetitve sets?
Title, would be a waste to have 148 and most of them just threw on the trash can.

Do actual particles pop up from empty space?
So i heard that the Hawking radiation is caused by particles that come into existence from the borders of the black hole and the one disappears away so there's some kind of loss of mass.
Then i heard that particles do not magically come into existence from nothing they are only virtual particles, meaning they are just used as a mathematical tool.
Is this true or when we say virtual particles we mean that they actually exist but have very short life span?

If the Uncertainty Principle states that all particles basically exist within a wave if possibilities rather than at a defined point, how does matter as we know it on the macro scale seem so "fixed"?
Also, has the wave function collapsed for all particles in everyday objects? Like if I am holding a basketball, obviously it is solid and is not whipping around in a cloud of possibility.
ELI5: how do particle accelerators work?
I vaguely get that they use magnetic fields to zoom particles along like rail guns use magnetic fields to zoom bullets along. But what I don’t understand is how magnets can move particles that aren’t magnetic. And how do you aim two microscopically small particles that are zooming near light speed at each other?

DRG particle effects and performance
DRG's graphics are simplistic and easy to render even for weaker laptops, however, the game has a ton of particle effects, from the ambient particles to particles from flares to multiple ones from killing glyphids (bullet trail, bullet shot, sparkles from the shot, glyphid blood splatter, shock/fire particles, warden shielding particles, particles from pheromones)
Basically, being able to turn off particles would immensely help performance. And it did. Until the 1.0 launch update, I was able to use an .ini tweak to disable particle effects; all I had to do, was to open the Engine.ini file and type this in:
This .ini tweak doubled my framerate, but since the 1.0 update, this line of code no longer functions as expected. Not only did the update tank performance of the space rig from 40 FPS to a struggling 20-25, but the line of code does not work in multiplayer anymore. I haven't tested it in single player as I have zero desire t

How does the standard model of particle physics explain Newton's laws of motion?
The way I understand it, the standard model of particle physics describes four fundamental interactions: electromagnetism, gravity, the strong force, and the weak nuclear force, gravity being unexplained in specific terms. Where then does Newton's "F" in F=ma come from (in particular the "applied force"), and why does it act upon aggregates of particles according to the Newtonian laws of motion?

Since heat transfer is caused by random collision of particles, is it mathematically possible that your hand could touch a hot pan and you actually heat up the pan with your hand?
I know the probability of this would be inconceivably small so it would never actually happen, but is it mathematically possible that: because heat transfer is based on random collisions of particles, all the hot particles just so happen to bounce from your hand to a hot so that the net heat transfer is positive? This would mean that instead of the pan heating up your hand, your hand transfers even more heat to the pan.
Sorry if I'm misunderstanding physics, just a fun question I thought of.

Questions on Newton's 3rd law: when I push on a wall, how does it push back on me? I just don't understand what is happening at the particle level when push a wall thar causes it to push back on me. Same goes with an object on a table, how does the table actually push back on the object?
During early-universe baryogenesis, which particles required more energy for its associated pair production: protons or neutrons?
I have been curious about this question for a number of years now and would like to know specifically if more energy is required to have neutron-antineutron pair production or proton-antiproton pair production. I realize that the rest mass of a neutron is 939.56542052 MeV and that of a proton is 938.27208816 MeV (~1.29 MeV less for a proton), but doesn't it require additional kinetic energy for the oppositely charged proton-antiproton pair to separate sufficiently to avoid re-annihilation? I would not expect neutrons to require much, if any additional kinetic energy as they are neutral. I fully expect that I am wrong in some of my assumptions, but my past searches for an answer to understanding the different energy requirements in pair productions have not been successful. A theoretical explanation or even experimental evidence for an answer to this question would be very helpful.
