Disabling Particles

beginner

In the event that you want to disable a particle, it is recommended to do so from the particle file itself as opposed to simply making the particle texture transparent in particles.png. Additionally, disabling a particle might offer a slight performance boost compared to making it transparent, as transparent particles are still emitted (but not visible).

The basic idea of disabling a particle from emitting is as follows:

Copy
{
	"format_version": "1.10.0",
	"particle_effect": {
		"description": {
			"identifier": "minecraft:some_vanilla_particle",
			"basic_render_parameters": {
				"material": "particles_alpha",
				"texture": "textures/particle/particles"
			}
		},
		"components": {
			"minecraft:emitter_lifetime_expression": {
				"activation_expression": 0,
				"expiration_expression": 1
			},
			"minecraft:emitter_rate_manual": {
				"max_particles": 0
			}
		}
	}
}
