    I'm confused. They still have today, tomorrow and Sunday for "this week after Tuesday" to be legitimate.

    Perhaps my tag won't reach him right now since I removed it and he wasn't online. Don't know about you quoting the tag, lol.

    Yeah, really awkward rn.

    Just to give you guys a little insight of why we needed to wait for a release, I was asked by an old computer science teacher two weeks ago to create a game to showcase an eye tracking scanner/software along with other physical movement controller technologies at a fairly well-known museum in San Diego for their current exhibit on video games. In fact, it was just this afternoon that I presented my game to the board of directors and the head of exhibits. This was a very big deal for the reputation of myself and my teacher, and my old high school's computer science program. I am sure you can understand that creating a presentable game, from scratch, using a technology I had never worked with in two weeks is a tall order and took most of my time. Luckily, the presentation went extremely well and the museum's board really appreciated what we had to offer. That being said, expect a 1.8.5 build to be out within the next few days.

    Maybe a mod or a resource pack that could make the firebending and airbending look less...particle-ish and more together.

    Since a resource pack mainly edits the look of each individual particle, I highly doubt that. But it's a nice thought.

    Hmm, maybe an optional mod then, like something you can tell your players on your server: "If you want a more complete experience, install the ProjectKorra mod!" or something like that

    and if I remember correctly, 1.8.5 should be out

    Yes, I would agree that the mod would allow them to make Bending more fluid in looks. If they chose to edit textures in that route.

    Hmm yeah, maybe the server could find out if the player has the ProjectKorra mod and communicate with the mod in able to make it more fluid. Communicating would probably also prevent other particles (not from bending) not look weird.
