    Hi, I only became aware of this today and I know that it has closed, but I would just like to advertise my latest show which can be viewed Here: (It’s Christmas themed)

    It’s not my best show I’ve done (check out my stadium fireworks show), but it’s alright in my opinion. And also could someone please help me, as to why my firework shows are blurry, once they are rendered?


  4. My best show it has cakes with no tails (peony only) 200, 250, 300 and 600mm shells in this show and it has comets and mines. So i created with me! And i will have a new version of FWsim 2.0!

    Thanks, enjoy my fireworks show and vote to me now with 10x or more.
