First, is this feature complete?
Second, is it intended to do this?
If yes on both of my previous questions, could I get some help getting something close to this set up?
This is apparently an editor plug-in. Is it able to change the orientation of the emitted particles based on the mesh so all of the particle images are not pointed upward?
It appears this editor plug-in is not complete (the Create Emitter From Mesh part at-least), but this is what this feature is intended to do. This will possibly be complete on version 2.1 or 3.0, can't wait.
