This is a rendered version of a real-time project. This version features a max of 5000 particles (I think) whereas the current realtime version can only handle about 1000 to 1250. However, this project is currently using no distance calculation optimizations so the particle count for the realtime version should be able to hit 5000 with little degradation to the behavior. Also, much of the work load can likely be passed to the GPU so much higher particle counts can be achieved.
