Making love::Vector arguments references. Also throwing some const on top of it because it looks prettier with syntax highlighting colors.

    It's by default active

    I think the ParticleSystem should be off on creation, but start to emit 10 particles per second to the "right" when started. Something simple and visible.


    Or is getCount better? The other methods don't have "Particle" in their names, except setParticleLife. Perhaps putting "Particle" in everything would be a bit overkill.

    Any comments on the other method names (both C++ and Lua)?


    Passing -1 for nonstop emitting seems kind of arbitrary. How about a call without arguments does that?

    Changing the lifetime of an emitter while it is active resets the lifetime timer. Maybe it should just count down from where it was.


    The offsets do not get changed when a new Image is set. Should it center it?


    This needs some work. I'm not sure what the variation is supposed to do, but it doesn't look very useful. How about we let them set a start spin, an end spin, and variations for both. I would also like to include an option that makes it select the sign randomly so it can spin in both directions.

    ParticleSystem:setSpin(10, 20, 1, 4, true)

    That would mean use a start spin of 10±1 radians per second and an end spin of 20±4 radians per second. The boolean gives it a chance of being negated. It's a bit different from the other variations... could get confusing.

    Am I overthinking this? Is something simpler enough?
