How can I get tanks to burn as part of the damage that they take on ?

I tried this code but no fire.
DamageParticleSystems=SparkSys,BigGreySmokeSys,FireStreamSys

DamageParticleSystems only works with a smoke or spark particle systems, [FireStreamSys] uses a Fire particle system so either change that or make a copy with BehavesLike=spark etc.

You can also use the Ares AttachEffect along with a damaging fire anim attached to a weapon to simulate setting units on fire.

Hey Mig
I created a new particle but it doesn't work.
The tank just smoke when damaged but does not burn.

I'm not using Ares because I just don't understand the coding

DamageParticleSystems=SparkSys,FireStreamFireSys,BigGreySmokeSys


[FireStreamFireSys]
HoldsWhat=FireStream
Spawns=yes
SpawnFrames=4
BehavesLike=Spark
Image=TWLT036
Lifetime=60 ; was 100

Sorry I forgot that spark particles only work on cyborg infantry, use BehavesLike=Smoke. You can also remove the other two Particle Systems as they aren't needed.
