I´ve added the canvas thing. If you check the debugger the number of snowflakes will go up to a certain point (300ish) but then stay around that number as all snowparticles that hit the ground will be put on the canvas and then destroyed.
I can´t provide a capx because I use C3 and this is the C3 forum anyway but you should be able to open this in the free version and check it out. Should be pretty much the same thing in C2 except you need to use the 3rd party canvas plugin construct.net/en/forum/extending-construct-2/addons-29/plugin-canvas-41782
Hi man i just finished my demo , it is quite nice looking and the average amount of sprites stays at 900 maybe all the time
but will look into your post now
EDIT: well the canvas way does not work here : emtee.cc/demos/src/snowtest.c3p with tilemaps.
But nice idea ! I hope i can get it to work for the platformer template too
but for now it works take a look :) it looks really awesome
